On August 21, 2019, GBCA held Understanding Constructors, an event that provided staff of GBCA members who may be less familiar with the construction industry with a basic introduction into construction processes. In addition to a brief history of how the building industry developed in Philadelphia, the class looked at the bidding process and some of the financial considerations constructors make when developing projects.

The class was taught by Dr. Charles Cook, President of R.S. Cook & Associates and Assistant Clinical Professor at Drexel University’s Construction Management Program, and Michael Youngblut, Vice President – National Practice of M&T Insurance Agency.



Thanks to all who attended, and to our two instructors for revealing some of the logic that contractors use in their businesses!
