WASHINGTON, D.C. (January 30, 2019) — Hanley Wood, the premier information, media, event, and strategic marketing services company serving the residential, design, and commercial construction industries, announced today the launch of a podcast series featuring conversations with the building industry’s thought leaders on the technologies transforming productivity in the built environment. In partnership with JELD-WEN, the podcast series is a companion to the Building Forward digital initiative that tackles the important and overarching issue of economic productivity in the construction industry with a special focus.

Hosted by Jeffrey Lee, content director of Building Forward, episode one features Majora Carter, an urban revitalization strategist and real estate developer focused on using development to transform the way land is used in low-status American communities. Carter shared how this model will play a role in supporting the transformation and growth of these communities.

“The Building Forward podcast series will feature innovations in factory-built housing, construction methods for infill development, and the impact of digitization on building design and production,” said Dave Colford, President of Hanley Wood Media. “The goal of the podcast series is to further the Building Forward initiative by providing a futurist’s insight into a dramatically evolving market and help today’s construction industry professionals navigate important trends and issues.”

Building Forward analyzes the disruptive labor and productivity changes transforming construction and showcases insight from a wide range of decision-makers, including architects, builders, contractors and subcontractors, engineers, remodelers, and suppliers.
