In 2016 GBCA partnered with the Charter High School for Architecture and Design (CHAD) and created the CHAD Hard Hat Club. This after school club allows students interested in careers in the construction industry direct access to contractors and jobsites in a two-part series: intimate presentations on a specific project and the opportunity to visit that same job site, for a post-presentation, private tour.
Past tours took place at the University of Pennsylvania’s Stemmler Hall (Torcon, Inc.), Philadelphia Fashion District (Skanska USA Building and Shoemaker Construction Co.).
GBCA members are invited to attend the 2018 Spring Membership Dinner on Thursday, March 8 at 5:00 p.m. at the Cescaphe Ballroom. The dinner will include a cocktail reception with specialty hors d’oeuvres, full course dinner, open bar and free valet parking. The featured speaker is William P. Hankowsky, Chairman, President, and CEO of Liberty Property Trust.
