The American Bar Association’s Forum on the Construction Industry got a taste of Houston hospitality at the 2012 Midwinter Meeting, February 2-3, 2012.  The program, “Innovative Legal Strategies Developed from Challenging Projects,” was held at the InterContinental Houston near the Galleria. Interface Consulting’s senior staff members, including Frank G. Adams, PE; Philip D. Barnard, PE, CCE; Christopher J. Sullivan; and Lisa Sumner Heard were on hand during workshops, plenaries, Division events, and as an exhibitor.

The program explored the advanced project management and legal tactics developed from large, challenging projects that are necessary to practicing construction attorneys and consultants. Thursday’s plenary sessions focused on many big issues that face the construction arena, including design control and delegation, the role of technology and its evolution in the industry, construction project funding, and complex schedule analysis. The Forum’s Divisions, many of them with participants from Interface Consulting, took on a bigger role this year as they presented all six of Friday’s workshops and multiple Division breakfasts.

“The education sessions are well-rounded and the topics are on point with industry trends, and continue to evolve every year,” said Mr. Adams, president of Interface Consulting. “The networking and educational opportunities are priceless for attorneys and other professionals serving the construction industry nationwide.”
