What’s the state of the supply chain? Figure3 brings the experts from different facets
of the construction industry together to offer insights and solutions.
The global supply chain issues being experienced today come as a result of a number of factors,
including increased demand for product and resources, decrease in labour pool, congestion of
distribution systems, and major environmental events resulting from climate change. Companies
have been hesitant to make real estate decisions, but are rapidly coming to realize they have run
out of time. Few could would have anticipated a run on building materials as common as drywall
or steel studs, but this is the world in which we find ourselves.
In this recent discussion, Figure3 Principal Eric Yorath is joined by Project Management
Director, Steven Demers, Sales Director of Haworth, Susan Carpenter, Partner and VP of
Business Development at Vestacon, Jamie Oldfield, and Figure3’s own Michelle Berry,
VP of Workplace, to discuss the circumstances leading to the supply chain conundrum,
and to better understand how clients can navigate these challenges. All participants
are part of CBRE’s Fusion program, a strategic partnership of best-in-class industry
service providers and manufacturers.
