It addresses critical issues such as acute labor shortages, lack of diversity in the workforce, and stringent energy efficiency regulations. The podcast is geared toward industry professionals looking to inspire positive change in buildings. —
Recent episodes featured well-known industry transformational leaders such as Marcus Weldon, Barbara Jackson, and Jim Neenan.
The first guest on the podcast, Marcus Weldon - VP of Redeem Detroit and an author of a recently published book “Surviving the System,” works on assisting disadvantaged teen moms with the training and support they need to begin a career in the skilled trades. “Project Noah” provides housing, daycare, transportation, and education and is aiming to help solve the severe shortage of young people in trades, two generations at a time.
Another Joe’s guest is Barbara Jackson - Director of the Burns School of Real Estate & Construction Management at the University of Denver, Founder & CEO of Women Building Change, and a nationally recognized speaker. Barbara has been an avid speaker and organized numerous successful events to influence and transform leadership and culture in the construction industry. She’s also authored two books, “Construction Management JumpStart” and “Design-Build Essentials.”
The most recent guest on the podcast, Jim Neenan - President and CEO of Prime West Companies, a renowned developer and building owner, addresses challenges of designing buildings with tenants of the future in mind. After the coronavirus pandemic, the needs of tenants have drastically changed. Employees demand healthy buildings with several amenities, developed infrastructure, and flexibility to work from almost anywhere. They also expect a rapid response to their property management requests, which can only be accomplished with highly qualified staff.
Joe Havey says, “Our industry is facing critical issues that need to be addressed on a national level. It’s been great to work on this podcast with the mission of creating more awareness around the skilled labor shortage and other topics. I’ve received very positive feedback about the podcast from colleagues and interviewees so far.”
