ABA posts meeting proceedings
Documents record key discussion on controversial contract standards.
The American Bar Association’s Forum on the Construction Industry has posted contents of its 2008 fall meeting —entitled “Winds of Change? The ConsensusDOCS.” The event focused on crucial differences between two opposing construction contract standards: the newly introduced ConsensusDOCS, and traditional American Institute of Architects documents.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
