Featured Presentation: How Contractors Can Help Owners Deliver Better ABC Projects (35 Minutes)

Description: A recent national survey of state bridge owners conducted by the ABC-UTC discovered one common concern across regions, owners, and markets: negative feedback from contractors is perceived as their number one issue related to advancing projects with ABC components. Further, the concerns were not over any technical issues presented by ABC technologies. With growing opportunities across the country where ABC solutions can provide real benefits to owners and communities, and an impending highway funding bill from Washington, this webinar looks to address improved communications between stakeholders. In a first of its kind webinar by the ABC-UTC, this panel of nationally recognized experts will explore ways that contractors and owners can work together to deliver better ABC projects. The panel will openly discuss how ABC delivery can be improved on the front end. It will feature live polling and will allow sufficient time to answer questions from participants.
