AGC Charities Inc. and Hilti are organizing a volunteer day to help Rebuilding Together on Sunday, March 27th


AGC Charities and Hilti are working with a national group called Rebuilding Together, which renovates homes for the disabled, aging and/or veteran communities, to organize a volunteer day on Sunday, March 27th. Member firm Hill & Wilkinson has volunteered to serve as the lead contractor on the project. To learn more about the project, watch the video here.


Volunteers will be renovating homes in the Cedar Crest neighborhood whose disabled owners are no longer able to maintain. AGC Charities will arrange bus transportation to and from the Annual Convention hotel (the Gaylord in Grapevine) and provide lunch and refreshments for all volunteers. The volunteer day continues an AGC Charities tradition of hosting an Operation Opening Doors volunteer project in the cities that host the AGC Annual Convention. Anyone registering for the convention can sign up for the project online at the same time.


For more information, or to sign up directly with AGC Charities for the project, contact Brian Turmail at or (703) 459-0238.

Construction Economic News
Prices of construction materials jumped more than 20% from January 2021 to January 2022, according to an analysis by AGC of America of government data released recently. The association posted a new edition of its Construction Inflation Alert, a report to inform project owners, officials, and others about the challenges volatile materials costs, supply chain disruptions, and labor shortages posed for construction firms.

“Unfortunately, there has been no letup early this year in the extreme cost runup that contractors endured in 2021,” said Ken Simonson, the association’s chief economist. “They are apparently passing on more of those costs but will have a continuing challenge in getting timely deliveries and finding enough workers.”

Blending old and new skill sets to make the next – and best – generation of construction field leaders

There’s only one thing society can count on to remain the same: Everything will change. The construction industry is quickly evolving — technologies develop, delivery methods transform and the pace with which we are expected to work is rapidly increasing. The skill set superintendents needed to be successful a decade ago is very different today. The modernization of the superintendent’s role now demands new competencies, like collaboration, patience, respect, flexibility and accountability. These soft skills are a newer addition to this line of work, but there’s no doubt that they play an essential role and are an important ingredient to a team’s successes.

Safety is a bond that unites us. It’s our connection to each other, and to something bigger than ourselves.

And the more we feel supported, the safer choices we make, and the better work we deliver, leading to safer selves, safer teams, and safer jobsites.
