IDGA's Military Construction Summit 2010


Published on

Building the Foundation for Future Construction Initiatives

Why Military Construction?

Military Construction is THE emerging topic in the defense arena. This booming industry is seeing major procurement and acquisition movements on both a domestic and international level. The sheer number of domestic projects and the volume of overseas bases that are built every few weeks is staggering. Aside from the billions of dollars that circulate on a daily basis for this sector, the Stimulus Package has allotted additional funding to assist Base Realignment and Closure. The field is advancing quickly and staying abreast with changes is critical.

What will this event focus on?
This Summit will cover the nuts and bolts of the Military Construction industry by highlighting the latest advancements of building material and equipment.

The event will provide you with:

- An understanding of environmental standards all military buildings must meet
- A forecast of military construction projects and how they will help the military meet their goals
- Insight into cutting edge equipment and materials that will aid in the military construction process
