As the AEC industry evolves the trends and hot topics emerge…or is it the other way around?  High-Profile’s 2016 annual review provides a shortcut to informative, and often inspiring articles published for those who have an interest in the design and construction of our facilities and the direction our industry is headed.
We have also included a few selected case studies as by-line articles worth noting.
