Senior Vice President Operations, Wise Construction

We really enjoyed the Future Labs Summit. It was certainly interesting and educational to hear the dynamic presenters speak to issues and challenges that are often outside of our life-cycle as a construction provider. We always strive to hear their day-to-day, as the context provide significant insight into the overall lab user objectives.
