Eighteen transportation construction industry professionals attended ARTBA’s Dec. 6-7 Project Management Academy in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Road and bridge building managers from United Infrastructure Group, Superior Construction, Young & McQueen Grading, Ranger Construction, Balfour Beatty Infrastructure, Blythe Development Co., Wright Brothers Constructions Co. Inc., and Carolina Bridge Co., Inc. sharpened their skills in DBE compliance, business ethics, construction documentation, client relations, economics of safety, and management and leadership in the workplace.

These same topics will be covered at the Dec. 13-15 Project Management Academy in Chicago.

Leading industry experts provided substantive theory and challenged attendees to find practical, yet innovative, responses to real-world scenarios and solidify their skills in managing projects in today’s competitive construction industry.

The two-day academy was hosted at the headquarters of the Carolinas AGC (CAGC), one of ARTBA’s chapter affiliates.
