Question 1: What projects/initiatives are you working on at the moment?

We are working on the Professional Builder 2021 Home of the year – The desert comfort experience. This is a “net-zero” high energy-efficient home and building science home. We are also working on some incredible hillside builds and ICF projects. We are seeking to build homes that are more sustainable and efficient. We will also be working on the first DELOS home, a healthy home. Healthy living with good air and water quality is key.

Question 2: How do you look at the construction industry in 2021?

I am very optimistic. Despite some of the cost increases, the outlook is really great for us in Phoenix. With the COVID Crisis, so many clients are looking to remodel or build new homes. We want these homes to be healthy as our clients are spending more time at home.

Question 3: What potential does see in construction management technology for a successful construction business, especially when we talk about recovery and growth after the pandemic?

Technology is everything. We use it every day. Every firm needs to adapt to the available technological resources. This allows us to be more efficient, communicate regularly with our clients remotely, and stay on track.

Question 4: Few tips would you like to share with other construction firms, contractors, and subcontractors? Anything which according to you can help add value to the business?

Our peers should continue to research the new products and technology in the market. Clients continue to ask for products that are low in VOC, sustainable products, and less carbon. There are so many resources to build a more advanced home and this will meet the future demand of our clients.
