In light of COVID-19, Living Building Chronicle reached out to ISI’s President and CEO, Anthony Kane, to discuss how the pandemic could change the way organizations design and build infrastructure moving forward. As Anthony discusses in this Q&A interview, this crucial moment should be a wake-up call for the industry. As countries seek to rebuild economies, Anthony hopes that infrastructure stakeholders and lawmakers demand resilient methods and processes to also enhance health and well-being and protect the environment. Focusing on future-forward design and delivery methods has never been more important.
Currently, ISI is conducting a marketing campaign called “Sustain it or Explain it.” The goal is to encourage the infrastructure industry to build SHOVEL-WORTHY projects not just SHOVEL-READY. In conjunction with our members (Autocase, Infrastructure Ventures, AIT bridges and many others), we are encouraging lawmakers to focus on smart-stimulus spending.
Building infrastructure the right way, we can make a difference and help avert future pandemic. Working together, we can be part of the solution.
