"Mistakes are the portals of discovery." - James Joyce
Timing is everything! When is the right time to innovate? When is the wrong time? There is a fine line between the success and failure of innovation within the AEC/O industry. Failure is beneficial to individuals, companies, and industries. It is how limits are identified, how ideas grow, and how we teach others. Almost all innovation comes with failure. The industry should accept and embrace this fact. This year, we hear from Visionaries about their experiences with innovations that did not quite make it to the success side
As Henry Ford put it, “The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing.”
2022 Annual Golf Outing Member Photos
Constituents and members of the Construction Institute enjoyed a beautiful, brisk autumn day filled with golf, games, raffles, camaraderie, and food. The original date of the scheduled event was rained out, but the rescheduled date proved to be a winner for all in attendance. We thank our sponsors and volunteers for helping us put on another successful event, and thank all our members for participating in this fun social event.
The Construction Institute is dedicated to supporting our members' journey in digital transformation. Keeping pace with technological developments in the construction industry and their implications is no small task. Artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain, smart contracts, robotics, the Internet of Things (IoT), manufactured construction, smart materials and other technologies are no longer just on the horizon; they are already in use by industry innovators. What technologies might become standard practice? What will be the timeline for their adoption? How should our members position themselves to take advantage of the opportunities and avoid the risks?
