AGC Needs Your Help to Measure the Scope of Construction Labor Shortages | Please take the short survey
Survey ends on August 12 | The construction industry has experienced some very significant and sudden changes during the past few months that have led to dramatic changes in demand for work, availability of key construction materials, and the need for new workers. In order to better understand the impact of these changes on member firms so AGC of America can best tailor advocacy efforts and services. The association is asking members to take a few minutes to complete a workforce survey prepared by AGC and Autodesk.
What contractors need to know about IIJA’s (Infrastructure Investment Jobs Act) construction tech carve-outs
Two programs funnel federal dollars to advance the use of technology in construction, but there are key differences, experts said. Two funding efforts in the $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act want to push construction into the digital age. 

The Advanced Digital Construction Management Systems initiative and the Technology and Innovation Deployment Program will provide a total of $550 million to promote the use of construction tech on government funded jobs. 
While they are similar, there are key differences that contractors should know about.
