Cost Escalation – Causes & Effects 

09-28-2021 09:49 AM

Construction costs are rising. During the past 18 months, common materials – such as lumber, copper, steel – have seen wild fluctuations in both cost and scarcity, causing volatility for architects and our partners. And while the consumer price index (CPI) and producer price index (PPI) are returning to anticipated levels – shockwaves can still be felt within the design & construction fields. Join us for a session with practitioners and policymakers to compare notes on what happened in 2020-2021, what it meant for our profession, and how we can prepare for continued market volatility.
