2021 Proves To Be An Innovative Year So Far

Can you believe we are already halfway through 2021? Me either!  But it’s been a great year so far. The WT Group continues to grow, tackling exciting, new assignments for a wide range of clients. As we continue to celebrate the anniversary of our 50th year, we look ahead to an even brighter future. One in which innovative approaches and materials will have bold impacts on the design/build industry. These will include expanding use of Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) in many projects. See the article on SIPs in this edition featuring WT Group's David MacDonald and PorterSIPS Sean O'Malley.
As always, thank you for your interest in the WT Group.
Stay well, 

Troy Triphahn

Contractors with a thirst for faster, lower cost completions should consider taking a SIP, featuring David MacDonald

The economic impacts of the coronavirus pandemic were experienced by all business and industry segments, including construction. Many residential and commercial projects were delayed or suspended in 2020. Now, with vaccinations on the rise and the pandemic waning in the U.S., the country is open for business once again and projects are ramping up dramatically. However, many contractors are facing complications due to one of the ongoing aftereffects of the pandemic – supply chain disruptions causing shortages, delivery delays and unprecedented price spikes for materials needed to complete projects.
