Mayor Walsh addresses over 200 ASM members via webinar

July 17, 2020 - Construction Design & Engineering

Boston, MA Since mid-March, ASM has worked hard providing the most current information to members and advocating on Beacon Hill. Over these past 16 weeks ASM has conducted 17 webinars or online seminars - certainly a record for our Association. On a recent webinar, mayor Martin Walsh, along with several of his senior staff addressed over 200 ASM members. The topic of discussion was construction safety and the reopening of construction. The mayor spent a considerable amount of time responding to questions- questions that no one, either in government or industry would have imagined four months ago. Because of the emphasis on safety by the mayor, the governor and other leaders, construction in Massachusetts seems to be getting back on track. Although we all hope this trend continues, the long-term impacts of the pandemic remain unknown. Questions remain about jobs in the pipeline. Will owners and developers keep plans at the white-hot pace that we saw until March? There is much still unknown but there is optimism about the direction we are headed.
