In conjunction with FMI, AGC’s Surety Bonding and Risk Management Forum recently completed a survey of the risks that today’s construction contractors have high on their radar screens — and the various ways that contractors are dealing with those risks.  The 83 responses that AGC and FMI received from 83 best-in-class companies collectively approaching $50 billion in annual volume suggest the following:

  • Today’s construction risk environment is drastically different than it was five years ago;
  • Skilled craft labor shortages, contract language and subcontractor default are top risks in today’s construction industry;
  • Construction firms are managing risk differently today;
  • Risk management effectiveness varies; and
  • Mitigating and managing risk has become a strategic priority.
