E-J Electric announces that President & CEO Anthony E. Mann spoke at the Fourth Annual Anchin Construction and Development Forum on Feb. 15, 2018. Hosted at The New York Academy of Sciences in New York City, the forum brought together senior development and construction executives to explore the evident trends influencing and disrupting the construction and development industry.
Addressing the Modern Issue
Mann's panel, Infrastructure Now: Understanding New York's Needs in the Modern Era, addressed how the region will tackle demanding infrastructural needs and the available opportunities for development and construction professionals.
As New York City's population continues to rise, with estimates of 9 million residents by 2040, New York's construction and development professionals are keen on creating efficient solutions to help the region's infrastructure withstand the growth. The extensive transportation and infrastructure network that New York's metropolitan region is comprised of is crucial to every day functions for the population. With the population continuing to rise, it is imperative that the transportation and infrastructure network can sustain such immense growth.
Mann spoke alongside Michael Evans, president of Moynihan Station development; Janno Lieber, chief development officer of MTA; Karen Rae, senior advisor for innovative project delivery of Empire State Development; Stewart Steeves, chief executive officer of LaGuardia Gateway Partners; Susan Walter, SVP and business leader of transportation of Stantec; and David Pfeffer, chair of construction practice of Tarter Krinsky and Drogin, who moderated the panel.
“Understanding and addressing the unprecedented impact of the prevalent trends transforming the construction and development industry is a necessity and cannot be ignored,” said Mann. “With new legislation being implemented as well as successful projects that are currently under way, I think that we can make these solutions into a reality. Design-build is key to the implementation.”
