Three things keep nagging at me. An AGC study determined that new construction and infrastructure equal to the amount that exists today will be built between today and 2030 in the US. The second is that 40% of the construction materials for a building under our current approach is wasted. The third thing is that as much as 25% of all construction today has to be re-done to make it right. The combination of those three things alone seems to me to make it imperative that we find better ways for architects and contractors to work together and we need to do it now.
