Join host Todd and guest Mark Lamberson as they discuss construction trends that are here to stay, doing your “due diligence” in the industry, how to evolve alongside the constant changes in tech, how to represent your own interests as well as those of your team with technology, and remembering to apply empathy to every aspect of the industry.
Mark Lamberson began his construction career as a plumbing apprentice for his stepfather’s plumbing company in Detroit in 1992. He completed an apprenticeship program through the Plumber’s Local 98 training center in 2000. He has worked in the roles of journeyman, welder, foreman, project manager and estimator. He began his role as a plumbing detailer in 2006 and advanced to leader, manager, and finally National VDC Manager for the Limbach Company. Mark’s accreditations include a Certificate in Plumbing Design, Certified Autodesk Professional, and a Certificate in Construction Supervision. In 2018, Michigan’s chapter of American Society of Sanitary Engineers awarded Mark the John E. Matthews Engineer of the Year Award. Mark is involved in technology implementation, fabrication, and standardization committees throughout Limbach.
- When it comes to technology, it is so important to take time for due diligence. However, don’t get stuck in analysis paralysis. Mark had a great reference on NDS – No Dead Squirrels, which speaks to this.
- Give yourself grace because you are most likely not going to get it right the first time. It really is a journey. Teamwork is a crucial element to successful technology implementation. This includes cross-industrial teamwork as well.
- Be open to different perspectives because everyone has a unique vantage point that they can really help to ensure success.
