If you have a building facility need now, it’s not going away in the future unless you take action! That old adage, ‘there is no time like the present”, could not be more appropriate than for building projects. Construction costs increase each year with almost the same certainty as the sunrise. But planning and constructing a new facility can take two years or more. Simply initiating the process now may save you millions in construction cost escalation versus kicking the can down the road! Your attendance may be the first step towards improved facilities that support your department’s operations.
