This past June our own Mark Hugeback spoke at the NAIOP (Commercial Real Estate Development Association) Industrial Conference, I.CON, summit in New Jersey. This conference discussed such topics as how the increasing demand for consumer goods affect the logistics supply chain. It also talked about the demand for new industrial development and trends in current and future industrial facilities.
I.CON offered the most up-to-date trends and information available presented by some of the most notable names in industrial real estate. We were thrilled that Mark was asked to be part of this elite group. In addition to attending educational networking and speaking events the attendees were able to participate in one of a kind experiences within the New Jersey Industrial market. I.CON attendees had the opportunity to visit and learn more about a recent M+H project, Goya Food’s new 640,000 sf distribution center in Jersey City. The focus of this building and site tour was on soil improvement solutions utilizing Controlled Modulus Columns (CMCs) that were designed and installed by Menard. That was followed up by touring Macy’s parade studio where the floats are designed and constructed for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
The NAIOP just published an article summarizing the conference that quoted Mark and his expertise on the industrial market. “At a related session titled “Behind the Wheel: Drivers of Development Cycles,” Mark Hugeback, AIA, principal and secretary/treasurer with M+H Architects, said that everyone in the industrial business is dealing with e-commerce in one way or another.”
