CIRT convened a short 30-minute webinar to examine the findings of a survey conducted by APCO Worldwide on behalf of the Round Table. The Insight Survey focused on the role of the design/construction community related to the nation's recovery from the pandemic and shutdown; as well as also provided interesting insights as to the public's perception of the industry as a whole. The purpose of the webinar was to provide a brief walk-through of the findings; and then to allow the participants to ask questions as well as provide comments and/or insights.NOTE: The APCO Insight Survey is available for dissemination and use by member firms. If you missed the live broadcast, here are the materials from the event: Information from CIRT/APCO Webinar.
CIRT commissioned the survey in conjunction with the Op-Ed entitled “The Road Ahead Beyond Pandemics and Shutdowns,” which was published on July 10th. By teaming with APCO to help craft the issues that were essential to better understand how the industry is viewed by the public, findings from the Insight Survey were used to support the two essential points of the opinion piece. CIRT will continue to look for opportunities to work with APCO on these critical matters; as can individual member firms when such expertise is called for or needed.
