It’s June, which means it’s our annual healthcare facilities focus!  We start off our healthcare section with Emily Langner’s article on the takeaways from this year’s Massachusetts Health & Hospital Association (MHA) annual conference.  Read Emily’s full report on page 14.

I’d like to call special attention to our Build Better podcast pages.  As most of you know, I produce and host a podcast called Build Better, where I talk with people that are acting on their own vision (or their organization’s vision) to build a better industry.  If you haven’t listened to the two latest episodes, I encourage you to!  Mary Vogel, Andrea Dunn and Tom Gunning are my most recent guests.  Read the synopsis articles on pages 24 and 25.

It was my honor to emcee the Society of Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) Connecticut Marketing Communications Awards this year. I enjoyed helping to shine the spotlight on the marketing teams who do so much behind the scenes to improve the visibility of Connecticut’s top AEC firms.

Sixty-seven percent of highway contractors report that motor vehicles had crashed into their construction work zones during the past year, according to the results of a new highway work zone study conducted by the Associated General Contractors of America. In response, association officials have launched a new radio and media campaign urging drivers to slow down and remain alert in highway work zones.

The National Trust for Historic Preservation has added the Industrial Trust Company Building to its 2019 list of America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places, an annual list that spotlights important examples of our nation’s architectural and cultural heritage that are at risk of destruction or irreparable damage. Dubbed the “Superman Building” due to its resemblance to the Daily Planet building from Superman comics, the iconic Art Deco tower has been vacant for six years and has no current rehabilitation plans.

Next month will be our biannual focus on awards.  Look for the full press release and list of winners from SMPS CT’s CMA awards, SMPS Boston’s awards, CBC’s Project Team awards, IFMA’s Boston Chapter Awards of Excellence, ABC Mass and ABC NH & VT chapters Safety awards, and a full list of this year’s Preservation Massachusetts Associations award winners!

Thanks for taking the time to read my personal message.

As always, enjoy the read!
