Procore hosted an excellent event at the Terminal City Club, where they focused on Technology in the Construction Industry. Following breakfast, there was a panel discussion lead by Helen Goodland of Brantwood consulting. Helen led a very intriguing conversation on how the construction industry is changing with the use of technology.
On the panel were Tooey Courtemanche CEO of Procore Technology, Tim Coldwell President of Chandos Construction, Brandon Drewlo President of Novacom Building Partners, Sunny Ghatautah President of AES Engineering, Mike Maierle Principal of Etro consulting, and Clint Undseth VP of Innovation at Stuart Olson.
As the discussions went on, Ashley was pleased to hear many of the insights shared by these industry leaders are very closely aligned with the beliefs of the Raven Team.
The panelists agreed to the many benefits of hiring recent grads as well as hiring talent from outside the construction industry. Raven has worked with the UBC Co-op program for many years hiring more than 10 co-op students. We gladly welcomed both Nic and Bennett back full time after graduation. We are always looking for the next addition to the Raven Team, at the local store or coffee shop.
Having trouble seeing how a project may look, or how you are going to get that equipment onto site? You may benefit from looking for your next hire in the gaming industry! They also shared their thoughts on how we can all benefit from sharing information with one another.
If you get the opportunity to attend an event with these brilliant folks, we would highly recommend attending! If you’re interested in checking out the footage from the event, please reach out to Sanjeev Dhillon with Procore at [email protected].
