Today, October 16th, Epstein’s director of project management, Jason Chandler, AIA, LEED AP, is in Boston for the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) National Fall Conference. In addition to attending this ACEC event which brings together leaders from nearly 5,000 engineering firms to discuss the current and future state of the industry, Jason is a featured member for an ACEC Steering Committee for Architects Forum. This group, which in addition to Jason, includes principals from AECOM, Hankins & Anderson and Mead & Hunt, will be discussing better ways for AE teams to achieve on-time delivery, team collaboration, greater project efficiency, and profitability.
Jason’s conference takes place at today from 3 to 4:15 and is being held within the Westin Copley Place in Boston. So if you are attending the ACEC conference stop by and take in this discussion on a critical AE industry topic.
For those of you not familiar with the ACEC here’s a short description of the group –
The ACEC is the voice of America's engineering industry. Council members – numbering more than 5,000 firms representing more than 500,000 employees throughout the country – are engaged in a wide range of engineering works that propel the nation's economy, and enhance and safeguard America's quality of life. These works allow Americans to drink clean water, enjoy a healthy life, take advantage of new technologies, and travel safely and efficiently. The Council's mission is to contribute to America's prosperity and welfare by advancing the business interests of member firms.
Today the ACEC is a large federation of 51 state and regional councils representing the great breadth of America's engineering industry. ACEC member firms employ hundreds of thousands of engineers, architects, land surveyors, scientists, and other specialists, responsible for more than $200 billion of private and public works annually. Member firms range in size from a single registered professional engineer to corporations employing thousands of professionals.
