Wisconsin Workforce Development Association Invites AGC to Participate on Talent Development Council
The Wisconsin Workforce Development Association (WWDA) invites the AGC to participate on the Talent Development Council (TDC), a new statewide workforce development initiative.
Association leaders throughout the state, representing eleven of Wisconsin’s major economic sectors, will meet June 6th in Madison for the TDC’s inaugural meeting. The TDC is designed to educate, inform and align efforts around workforce development. Members of the TDC will meet quarterly to discuss and advance workforce policy, funding and collaboration, as well as enhance employer engagement.
As a leader in the commercial construction industry, the AGC of Greater Milwaukee will be represented on the TDC by AGC CEO Mike Fabishak. “The insights gained through AGC’s extensive engagement in workforce development should prove valuable for this new initiative,” Mike Fabishak remarked. “This will be a great forum to exchange best practices and success stories.”
The WWDA is a non-profit educational foundation that promotes, enhances, and serves the interests of local workforce investment agencies and system partners in Wisconsin. This opportunity will increase the scope of AGC’s already strong engagement in workforce development through local organizations such as the WRTP/BIG STEP.
For more information about this and other workforce development initiatives the AGC is engaged in, contact Mike Fabishak at (414) 778-4100 or mfabishak@agc-gm.org.

Construction Industry Digs in as Milwaukee Area Projects Surge
Tackling projects on budget and on time keeps construction firms hustling, and the volume of new building in progress around the Milwaukee area is giving them plenty of jobs to focus on.

The List for the May 25 weekly edition features construction firms with area offices that had the highest dollar volume of work put in place during 2017.

Mortenson, with $388.44 million, soared to the top with its local work, including the high-profile Wisconsin Entertainment and Sports Center in downtown Milwaukee.

Nelson Williams of Briohn Building Corp., Brookfield, focused on the start of a 192,000-square-foot spec industrial building his firm is erecting on the corner of Moorland and College Avenue in New Berlin.

"We put in place a TIF to create public roads and a signalized intersection, which will spur further development in the area," Williams said.

JP Cullen's Larry Rocole pointed to work the firm is doing as construction manager on the Milwaukee Fortress project.

"It was originally home to F. Mayer Boot & Show Co. until about the 1930s. Since then, it has been home to many others, including musicians, filmmakers, artists, galleries, theater companies, art supply shop, daycare and a Montessori school," he said. "It is now under renovations to become a new home to Milwaukee residents, as well as JP Cullen's new Milwaukee office."
