What's motivating the regional construction industry?

If you would have asked me when I first started my career why I chose the construction industry, the answer would have been simple. I joined this industry, because I wanted to build magnificent buildings and admire the work.

Twenty-five years later, if you were to ask me the same question, my answer would be very different. I no longer simply want to build buildings and admire them. There is so much more to it. 

I now realize the reason I am so passionate about this industry is because I am not just building structures, but — rather — I am building opportunities, performance, relationships, culture and excitement.

I believe that this change in attitude has helped our team achieve successes that have been recognized by the industry and affirmed our approach and work.

Our perspective is going to fuel the topics of our upcoming blog posts at grbj.com.

We look forward to discussing our observations and highlighting some of the regional themes, players and dynamics in West Michigan construction. 

Stay tuned for a post about the resurgence of faith-based construction throughout our community.
