The American Society of Civil Engineers will release 3,000 free copies of “Ethicana,” a new anti-corruption DVD. Funded by firms, global banks and others, it is the centerpiece of a revved-up training program for educating engineers, builders and students worldwide. It targets costly fraud, bribery and corruption practices.
The market is generally healthy and steadily growing, and margins are up for large specialty contractors. Further, advances in design tools and owner demand for collaboration are giving subcontractors a seat at the table early on in projects.
