Register today to attend FEDCon®The Annual Market Outlook on Federal Construction, scheduled for January 9, 2013, and get the inside scoop on federal construction projects directly from the source. Presented during Building Innovation 2013 – The National Institute of Building Sciences Annual Conference and Expo, January 7-11, 2013, at the Washington Marriott at Metro Center in Washington, D.C., FEDCon gives attendees the most authoritative, up-to-date information on future projects.

Join us for this one-day event and find out what it takes to compete for quality projects. FEDCon, now in its 20th year, will give private-sector architects, engineers, general and specialty contractors, and manufacturers insight into what they need to know to deliver services and products to the U.S. federal government—the world's largest facility owner and procurer of design and construction services.

Officials from federal agencies will present their construction budgets for the current year and planned budgets for future years; discuss the types of buildings to be designed; offer regional and international construction information; and provide the overall direction of their design/construction programs.

You’ll hear first-hand from:

  • Les Shepherd, AIA, Chief Architect, Public Building Service, U.S. General Services Administration
  • Joseph E. Gott, PE, Chief Engineer and Director, Capital Improvements, U.S. Naval Facilities Engineering Command
  • Dennis Milsten, CCM, Associate Executive Director, Facilities Programs and Plans, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs
  • Robert M. Gill, PE, Office of the Air Force Civil Engineer, Facility Management Division, U.S. Air Force
  • Joe Toussaint, Program Development Coordination & Support, U.S. Department of State

  • Christine Foushee, Director of External Affairs, Bureau of Overseas Buildings Operations, U.S. Department of State
  • Stephen DeLoach, PE, LS, Deputy Chief, Engineering and Construction, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
  • Scott E. Robinson, Director, Facilities Engineering Division, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

Don’t Miss a Free Lunch . . .

And your opportunity to hear from Robert A. Ivy, FAIA, Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), as he delivers the keynote address during the keynote luncheon sponsored by Lehigh Hanson. Ivy will launch a new resource tool, called the Building Research Information Knowledgebase ("BRIK”), on which NIBS and the AIA are partnering.
