Seeking New Directions By Raising the Bar on CM

Publication Date: 6/9/2010
Author: J.T. Long with Debra K. Rubin
Format: HTML

More than three decades later, Aliabadi has steered the growth of Vanir Construction Management Inc. and its parent company from a local minority business into a global competitor, while raising practice standards for CM professionals in his firm and others.
