MPA has launched a new, quarterly program: Lunch and Learn! Each event will be a two hour, in depth, informative panel style presentation and discussion on a timely and relevant topic to the land use and development industry. Each Lunch and Learn will be presented in partnership with another organization, providing greater opportunity for relationship building and expanding the access of information we are able to provide our Members with.
The first Lunch and Learn is in partnership with the Arizona Builder’s Alliance and will look at the increasing cost to construct as a result of the following factors: shortage of materials, supply chain delays, labor shortages, increasing wages and more. The presenters and panelists are as follows:
Tucson Branch Manager, Graybar
Graybar, a Fortune 500 company, specializes in supply chain management services, and is a leading North American distributor of high-quality components, equipment, and materials. Serving the construction market, the commercial, institutional, and government (CIG) market, and the industrial and utility markets, Graybar products and services support new construction, infrastructure updates, building renovation, facility maintenance, repair and operations, and original equipment manufacturing.
Operations Manager, Climatec
Climatec is the leading provider of advanced building technologies and energy solutions for thousands of customers across the country and is the largest building automation company in Arizona. Their team leads the industry with their depth of talent and their dedication to delivering world-class service has made them the largest privately-owned building technologies provider in the nation. Climatec has been making buildings safer, more comfortable and efficient for over 40 years.
Chasse Building Team
Built different, on purpose. Barry Chasse’s vision to create CHASSE Building Team in 2007 is founded on the concept of team work and building to make a difference; a difference in collaborating and giving back to the Arizona communities we serve and making construction more than just building. Barry started his career in construction nearly three decades ago as a project coordinator earning only $6 per hour. Literally starting from the bottom and learning the ins and outs of all aspects of construction. In the past ten years, Barry has cultivated his company from 10 original employees to over 150 located in Phoenix and Tucson. This has led to CHASSE investing over $3.5 million into charitable causes with a particular emphasis on child-focused philanthropy and efforts that benefit the education of our future leaders.
