Beacon President's Message Oct. 2020

Well, the World Series is over (congratulations Dodger fans), Covid-19 is boomeranging, and the Presidential Election is upon us. What a seems to be lasting forever!

On the bright side, in the construction industry we are seeing some positive news in recent weeks as some large construction projects continue to make progress and plans for some very large new projects are being announced. Let’s hope we will see a good resurgence in the economy and many new project announcements over the next year. This month, we profile a very interesting assignment which Beacon has been consulting on: The Catskill Aqueduct Repair & Rehabilitation Project. We have been providing construction consulting services to a leading Surety related to part of this project, which is a major rehabilitation project of a 104-year-old, 74-mile-long, water-supply aqueduct running from the Catskill Mountains to just north of New York City. Our team has consulted on many critical infrastructure projects over the years, but this is an important one because the aqueduct provides almost half of New York City’s water (more than 8.3 million people count on that aqueduct working right). We also profile Andrew Lem, one of our key team members in Beacon's New York City office. Finally, Mike Kinahan of our Medford, MA office weighs in about Construction Project Cash Flow Analysis & Management, an important part of many projects we are involved with. Please read on to learn more.

Have a Happy Halloween & stay well! As always, please contact our team if we can help with any construction consulting challenge you may be facing.

Best Regards,

Dennis O'Neill, President
