April 6, 2021
The March/April issue of BreakingGround Magazine featured HDG Principal and Founder, Kevin Hayes, as he shared insights on the future of construction in the public education market.
In the issue’s feature article, Public Education Construction Outlook, Kevin reflected on HDG’s recent study for Bethel Park School District and discusses the impact of the trends of changing population demographics on public schools.
