Developing and Enhancing Construction Systems and Programs Throughout New York
As the world changed with the pandemic, the construction sector changed with it. There’s been a rising cost in raw materials with a drop in construction filings and labor sourcing. The new infrastructure bill has a great effect on development activity.. This event will bring together experts across sectors to assess the current state of New York’s construction systems, break down recent legislative actions, and look towards the future of all things coming up and going on in New York.
Due to the increase in COVID numbers, we are moving to have this summit be VIRTUAL. All tickets purchased are in the process of being refunded. Thank you for your understanding as we work to keep everyone safe.

The Public-Private Partnerships Bringing Projects to Life in New York
The new Infrastructure bill should clear the way for several high-profile projects including the extension of Second Avenue subway in Manhattan and a plan to build a new rail tunnel linking New York and New Jersey. The sprawling bill has funds for high-speed internet, climate resiliency projects, energy grid improvements, transportation projects and environmental programs. We discuss these public-private partnerships involved with the new bill, others in progress and tips on inclusion.
Plans for Infrastructure and Buildings for a Diverse NY
The construction industry in NYC has been a leader in advocating for diversity by adhering to top diversity standards in procurement and in utilizing small business, M/WBE, DBE, and SDVOB subcontractors. New York builders have already started overhauling their approach to new construction and existing projects by incorporating options for vulnerable NY'ers as well. Our panel of industry experts will review how we can continue and do even better in this area, while making our building environment a safe and secure workplace, manage current industry challenges, and the latest legislations in this area.
Rebuilding NYC: New Developments for Economic Recovery
What will Build Back Better mean to NY? What will the new infrastructure plan mean for NYC’s economic recovery and how can it be done in a way that’s efficient, equitable, resilient and sustainable? What are the biggest construction opportunities in NY and how will these projects help NY long term while focusing on reducing our environmental impact? What does the rising cost of materials and construction labor (union vs. non-union) tell us about construction in the city? What kind of affordable housing plans are in place and what will the new programs mean for New York? How will faster and more spread-out internet usage impact our buildings and infrastructure? And what are new plans and ideas for sheltering our homeless populations?
