VIDEO: What is the emerging construction trend of 2014?

The Journal of Commerce asked members of its editorial advisory board what they feel is the biggest emerging trends that will shape the construction landscape in 2014.

ICBA president Philip Hochstein, COCA outgoing president Grant McMillan, BC Building Trades executive director Tom Sigurdson, BCCA president and CEO Manley McLachlan and ACEC BC president Keith Sashaw all offered different insights on the forces they see shaping their sectors in the new year.

LNG and other mega-projects were cited as the dominant trend, and tied into that was apprenticeship training, which Sigurdson pointed to as increasingly important as the demand for labour to work on these projects increases.

McMillan also pointed to regulation review as something COCA would be devoting time and energy to in 2014.
