The Purchasers: Greg Garvin & Peter Capone

The Purchasers: Greg Garvin & Peter Capone

Guests: Greg Garvin, Chief Purchasing Agent - New England, at Gilbane Building Company and Peter Capone, Director of Purchasing at Consigli Construction.


In this episode Joe sits down with Peter and Greg to discuss the role of purchasing in the construction process. What the role is, where it crosses over with pre-construction, estimating, project management.  Purchasing is not an independent position at all firms so this is a great episode for GC’s to learn and improve your processes, subs to understand a GCs perspective and for owner’s to see the value a purchaser brings to the table.

Are Subcontractors Becoming Manufacturers? w/ Central Ceilings

In this episode of the Mass Construction Show, Chris and I discuss Central’s decision to purchase a stud roller that will not only manufacture stud and track in-house but cut all the pieces to length based on the model uploaded.

Rob McKinney: Tech, Safety, Podcaster, AGC & More

In this episode of the Mass Construction Show we speak with Rob Mckinney.  Rob has a truly unique path of religious Studies major, to construction, to technology and beyond. Rob is an amazing example of leveraging continual growth and learning to position himself into a career that fits his interests and lifestyle. I found Rob’s story to be a great inspiration about what is possible for all of us, and proof that anyone can step out of the predetermined paths we might find ourselves on.
