    Rising Construction Costs – Their Effects on Private and Public Projects       

    Recent public and private projects are having challenges staying on budget. Examples include the City of Portland water reservoir upgrade project, next to Washington Park, cost overruns and the recent budget gap discovered after the Portland Public School Bond was passed by voters. Find out what factors are driving up construction costs – both hard costs like labor shortage, tariffs, raw materials; soft costs like rising permit costs, more design requirements, and more. How long will the trend of rising costs continue and what direction are we headed for in terms of construction here in Portland?

    Brian Shoemaker, of P&C Construction. and Mark Stoller, of Opsis Architecture, will look at the different factors that are challenging estimators when they prepare budgets for upcoming projects. With an interest in construction that dates back to childhood, Brian turned his attention to large scale commercial construction in college, earning his Civil Engineering degree from Portland State University.  
     
    Brian Shoemaker, having joined P&C Construction in 2004, enjoys managing the complexities that come with each project and is constantly motivated to find solutions that streamline processes, empower team members, and improve project outcomes.  
     
    Mark Stoller, of Opsis Architecture, has 30 years of experience in all aspects of architecture, Mark Stoller serves as Principal at Opsis Architecture. In this role, he acts as a project leader, staff mentor, and representative of the firm. His career accomplishments include a range ofhitecture from Pratt Institute and a Bachelor of Architecture from Washington State U
     complex, institutional projects, with a specific focus on educational work. Mark earned a Master of Arc
    niversity.
