How do we put the pieces of the puzzle together to benefit not only the profit margin, but also bring a higher value to the customer, the end user and our industry as union electrical contractors? In this session, two competitors will discuss how a collaborative effort focused on growing the pie – not stealing each other’s slice – is looking to create a paradigm shift in how NECA contractors view each other. Topics discussed include lean construction principles, safety, preconstruction planning, prefab, best practices and software.
