From the Article: “The construction industry ended 2018 in good shape in nearly all parts of the country, and contractors are optimistic about the volume of work available in 2019,” AGC chief economist Ken Simonson said. “But finding workers to execute those projects is likely to be a major challenge.”

G2 National Op-Ed:  With G2 National’s PRS™ there is often no need for highly skilled framing labor (screws together, self-plumb/line).  The PRS™ is a viable solution for the skilled labor shortage in the construction industry.

From the Article: “For some perspective on where this growth would slot Amazon’s model, 3,000 restaurants would place it at No. 16 in the QSR 50 (in regards to U.S. locations), right behind Papa John’s (3,314 locations end of 2017) and in front of Jimmy John’s (2,755 restaurants).”

G2 National Op-Ed:  G2 National’s PRS™ would allow Amazon to open its stores faster than the industry average by avoiding deferred submittals.  The ability to open a store 2-3 weeks earlier makes serious dollars and sense.

From the Article: “While we need national and systemic changes to stop climate change, these companies can also make a difference. This is by no means a complete picture of all the sustainability work happening in the private sector–and that is something that should be a cause for optimism.”

G2 National Op-EdWhile the obvious Sustainability focus in the commercial sector happens inside a store, G2 National wants to bring focus to the building itself! Going “green” should start at the building and design level, it should not be an after-thought.  G2 National aims for a greener and cleaner environment. G2 National’s PRS™ allows less material usage and is green friendly!

From the Article: “…omnichannel strategies are expected to have a big impact on the restaurant industry in 2019. In response, restaurant real estate teams will need to adapt store layouts to reflect how customers are interacting with them today, says Polanski. This may mean adding pickup windows for online orders and reducing the number of seats in the restaurant.”

G2 National Op-Ed:  G2 National’s Parapet Roof System provides flexibility to the architect by providing a Strong and Simple system that can accommodate plant-ons, canopy affixment, and drive thru over hangs without complex and costly material additions.

In a Strained Labor Market, the Construction Workforce Continues to Age

From the Article: “The aging workforce may soon compound U.S. builders’ labor issues—a top concern for NAHB members. With 240,000 unfilled construction jobs in the U.S., an aging workforce may create other problems for builders….If more young workers do not enter the field, many firms will be forced to adopt labor-saving technologies like robotics and autonomous equipment and labor-saving techniques such as lean construction and off-site prefabrication…”

G2 National Op-Ed: An aging workforce is another reason to move towards the strong and simple CSP™ and PRS™.  Our easy-to-install systems do NOT require a high level of rough carpentry expertise to safely erect.  Watch our video to see how each sub-component of our CSP-P6™ come together.  Often no complicated and expensive structural connectors are required…just our HSCs™ and a screw gun.
