Beck Releases 2018 Winter Cost Report

  • Dec 10, 2018

The Beck Group Cost Report addresses market sector and AEC industry trends in the markets and offices that it serves. Each edition is themed around one market sector. For winter 2018, the theme is K-12 education. Beck also polls its team for insight into industry trends and where it expects movement in the future.

According to its team of experts, the most significant opportunities lie in addressing the industry-wide labor shortage. The rise in prefabricated solutions will help with the workforce issue, but increases in material costs continue to be a challenge as the industry looks for ways to be more efficient and competitive in the market. The team universally agrees that technology is the driving force in addressing short and long-term challenges.
