Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) and FMI Capital Partners will host a two-part webinar on implementation and expanded market opportunities/outlook for the 2022 highway, federal and utility construction markets due to the passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) on Tuesday, Jan. 25, and Thursday, Jan. 27, from 2 to 3 p.m. EST. The webinars are free for AGC members and $99 for nonmembers.
Webinar 1: Implementation of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act: Expanded market opportunities and outlook for the 2022 highway and transportation market (Jan. 25)
FMI’s economic team will deliver a 2022 market outlook for the highway and transportation construction markets. Concluding the outlook, FMI’s Brian Moore will moderate a panel discussion among AGC multimodal construction firm CEOs and state owner agencies to broadly discuss what the owner and contractor expectations are for the coming year’s transportation construction market. How are owners going to get this significant amount of new funding out the door? How will current issues, such as the supply chain, material price increases, labor shortages and delivery systems affect that? How can owners and contractors work together to deliver this increased number of projects? Participants will leave this session with a good sense of what new programs are in the bill and what to expect in the market this upcoming year due to its passage.
Webinar 2: Implementation of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act: Expanded market opportunities and outlook for the 2022 direct federal and utility construction markets (Jan. 27)
In Part 2 of AGC and FMI’s webinar series on implementation of the new bipartisan infrastructure law, FMI’s economic team will deliver a 2022 market outlook for the direct federal and utility construction markets. Concluding the outlook, FMI’s Brian Moore will moderate a panel discussion among representatives from various federal agencies to discuss how they plan to implement the significant amount of new funding the IIJA provided for water, wastewater, and other federal and municipal construction projects. The panel will discuss how current market and delivery issues may affect getting projects off the ground, as well as what contractors not experienced with this type of construction may need to know about performing construction work for the federal government. This session is a prime opportunity for contractors to better understand the new and diverse infrastructure funding provided for in the IIJA, and how they may qualify for and get into these markets.
