ABC NH/VT hosts Innovation in Education Construction Symposium

Panelists and speakers will share insights on new and emerging trends in school construction. Preti Flaherty's Ken Rubinstein will moderate two panel discussions addressing collaborative project delivery methods, building information modeling (BIM), prefabrication, and lean and green construction.  You'll learn how each can impact you – whether you’re a school official, project manager or general contractor.
