On Saturday, March 30, 2019, GBCA sponsored a segment on 6ABC’s Weekend Extra that showed how GBCA members are using new technologies to improve construction processes in Philadelphia.
On Thursday, March 28, 2019, GBCA’s Construction Leadership Council (CLC) held its annual networking event, Opening Day at Citizens Bank Park. Before going in to see the Phillies play the Atlanta Braves, the CLC held a pre-game happy hour at Xfinity Live!
Thanks to all who came out to spend the afternoon together. The weather was beautiful, and the Phillies won!

Amr Raafat is an architect, a virtual design and construction expert, and the director of Windover Construction’s virtual design and construction team. He’s a fan of using tech tools in construction, particularly drones.
Raafat believes in construction firms using drones in-house in order to control quality and cost, as well as improve efficiency and safety. For his company, drone-use is integrated with BIM processes, which reduces errors in creating 3D models, and also is a useful tool in modular construction projects.
