Looking Ahead to 2015
By: Brian Sullivan
The Construction Industry
The NY Building Congress report referenced in our article Looking Back at 2014 also calls for continued growth in 2015 through 2016. Based on our current strong backlog of work, and that of many other engineers and contractors that Iave spoken to, this seems to be the case.
Building Envelope Restoration
As the economy continues to recover, the building envelope industry will continue to strengthen. Many projects postponed in prior years due to financial reasons, appear to be gaining traction again. Furthermore, in New York City, the start of sub-cycle A of the 8th cycle of the FISP (formerly Local Law 11/98) inspections will begin February 21st. As a result some building owners may have to rush to resolve issues identified in 7th cycle reports, while others may take a proactive philosophy and address all SWARMP conditions prior to filing.
At Sullivan Engineering, we confidently anticipate steady increased growth through 2015. We intend to continue to grow our team through the steady talent pipeline that we have developed.
We are very excited to host our second annual all day planning retreat in February, where we will discuss the long term (25 year) vision for our firm, as well as the more immediate (3 year) vision. Additionally, we will be discussing areas of improvement, our training procedures and desired leadership qualities.
Undoubtedly, we will continue our voracious continuing education efforts and constant individual growth, which has been so critical to our success thus far. We genuinely wish you all tremendous health, happiness and prosperity in 2015 and look forward to continuing our relationships through the next generation.
