President's Message, August 2023

I hope you have been having a great summer! Once again, the summer seems to have flown by. It's already "back to school" time, with many college students returning to school in the past two weeks, including my two oldest kids. My oldest daughter is a senior at Northeastern University this year and our second daughter has started her sophomore year at Syracuse University. I've always liked this time of year—maybe because I can still feel the excitement of heading back to school and the new experiences that come with that.

Here at Beacon, we are "life-long learners" because there is always something new to learn in our industry, whether it's a new construction process, new technologies or software, or emerging best practices for managing a project. For this reason, our team is actively involved in a variety of professional organizations to keep up to date on the latest trends and technologies.

This summer, our team has been busy managing construction consulting assignments across the U.S. However, all work and no play isn't healthy (especially in the summer)! In July, I had the pleasure of traveling to Ireland with good friends and family members to participate in a charity event - The 41st Annual Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle. I would like to say a big Thank You to everyone who traveled all the way to County Kerry, Ireland to participate in this great event and/or cheer on the riders. Please click here for more info and photos from that event.

Please check out this month's Beacon E-news for more info regarding Beacon's team, upcoming events, project updates, and more. As always, please contact Beacon if you need assistance with any construction-related project.

Sincerely, Dennis O'Neill
President, Beacon Consulting Group, Inc.
