This week on the Construction Record podcast, digital media editor Warren Frey speaks with construction thought leader Barry LePatner about ongoing difficulties in the United States and globally as supply chain issues continue to plague construction and many other industries
LePatner said a semiconductor shortage from Asian suppliers is one of the main drivers of continued disruption as is the war in Ukraine and an ongoing labour shortage including fierce competition for workers such as truck drivers who can work for either construction-related firms or huge corporations such as Amazon and Wal-Mart who require more and more means of distribution.
