Past Event – SCGMA Economic Webinar: Pandemic Outlook for Construction


SCGMA Members,

Like the pandemic itself, the economic impact on contractors in Southern California, as in many parts of the nation, has been highly variable. Some firms have been untouched or even thrived, while others have been devastated. What will 2021 bring for the region’s building construction market and its subcontractors? AGC of America Chief Economist, Ken Simonson, reported on AGC’s latest coronavirus survey and other data before gazing into his virtual crystal ball to provide his California state and national economic predictions.

Architectural Glass Boot Camp

Designed to expose rising architects and specifiers in the LA/OC region to the craft of a glazier through interactive instruction and hands-on application.


Architectural Glass Boot Camp is an interactive instructional program developed specifically for AIA members and specifiers. Boot Camp reinforces the importance of collaboration and communication in design by providing an opportunity for emerging design professionals to interface with apprentice glaziers and enhances the educational experience by providing a forum for the exchange of information between these otherwise fragmented groups about complex construction issues.


If you are interested in attending, please contact Deveney Pula.

The class was hands-on, informative, and very useful. I highly recommend!

Daniel Grauerholz, Simpson Gumpertz & Heger

Excellent program. Very knowledgeable instructor and very helpful crew.

Hector Pons, Simpson Gumpertz & Heger

More than 15 years of experience in the architecture profession and yet I learned so much. Nothing beats hands-on experience when it comes to learning!

Manzer Mirkar, HKS Architects

As an architect I found this program very informative. Even after 35 years of detailing and specifying curtainwall, I learned a lot.

Joe LoBasso, Dougherty Architects

Great to actually experience putting a glazing unit together and seeing how it can be assembled in a system!

Josh Blue, Carlile Coatsworth Architects

This program is very informative and unique in its kind. Participants get to know the technical information about storefront/curtainwall systems and all experience the actual hands-on method of installation. Speakers are experts in the field and clearly give upfront answers to questions during the session.
