CONSTRUCT is known for linking thousands of industry leaders to procure knowledge for building success. This goal is the basis for the partnership between CONSTRUCT and Let’s Fix Construction. You can read the LFC blog at LetsFixConstruction.com.
According to Sylvia Wofford, marketing manager for CONSTRUCT, “CONSTRUCT is enthusiastic about partnering with industry leaders by being an official endorser of Let’s Fix Construction. We feel this partnership will help spread the message of collaboration and resolution to problems that are faced in the construction industry. CONSTRUCT wants to help proliferate solution messages through this partnership.”
The mission of Let’s Fix Construction (LFC) is to bring all disciplines from the built environment (specifier, architect, engineer, contractor, facility manager, product representative, manufacturer and owner) together to offer collaborative insight, knowledge and positive forward-thinking to problems which we face every day in Architecture, Engineering and Construction. LFC was co-founded by two AEC professionals from opposite coasts. Eric D. Lussier of Precision Athletic Surfaces, hailing from the East and Cherise Lakeside of Ankrom Moisan Architects, representing the West. Having met through the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI), Eric and Cherise decided to do more than just talk about issues plaguing the industry and began this effort toward change. That’s how LFC came about.
The Let’s Fix Construction stable of AEC professionals is growing monthly and represent all areas and disciplines in the AEC industry. Presently featuring over twenty writers, some of them include CSI members Sheldon Wolfe, Elias Saltz, Keith Robinson, Michael Riscica, Randy Nishimura, Lori Greene and Marvin Kemp in addition to Eric and Cherise.
“I am thrilled to forge a relationship between CONSTRUCT and Let’s Fix Construction. I have worked with the Informa team over the last four years on Young Professionals Day, the Education Advisory Council and other speaking opportunities and events for CONSTRUCT. I am impressed with their commitment to providing an event that meets the needs of many disciplines at many levels. They listen! With a common goal of bringing all disciplines in our industry together with an equal seat at the table; we felt this relationship was a no brainer,” states Cherise Lakeside.
“It is an honor and a privilege to be able to work in partnership not only with Cherise to deliver a Let’s Fix Construction workshop lunch and another educational session in Providence, R.I., but also to be able to partner LFC with CONSTRUCT. The chance to partner LFC with Informa was an easy decision to make, as we both have a goal to assist the building project team with educational solutions,” says Eric Lussier.
