The Construction Leading Edge Podcast

EPISODE 309: What does it take to grow a construction business to $250M in revenue?

In this week’s podcast episode, I sit down with Wes Palmisano, CEO and owner of WJ Palmisano and its subsidiaries, to talk about how he scaled up his construction business by focusing on preconstruction.

Today, Wes explains the importance of preconstruction and having the right systems and processes when scaling a business. He also talks about the biggest roadblocks hampering construction innovation, how he and his team are tackling those, how to work with external trade partners and subcontractors, with emphasis on building trust, and a lot more.
