Laura Bush Named a 2023 Construction Champion – Industry Veteran by Construction Dive

NEW YORK CITY, NY – Congratulations to Laura Bush, Director of Operations for the New York City Metro Region, for being recognized during Women in Construction Week as a Construction Dive 2023 Construction Champion.

Honored as an Industry Veteran thanks to her nearly 30 years in construction, Laura’s experience and leadership in the industry has earned her this well-deserved recognition.

This year’s 31 award winners were selected from a pool of more than 400 nominations due to their commitment to making the construction industry a more diverse, productive and welcoming place for all.

In addition to her leadership at Consigli, Laura is also a founding co-chair of the Ambassador Council for Nontraditional Employment for Women (NEW) an organization formed to support women interested in entering the construction trades. She has also served on the Board of the Women Builder’s Council in New York City and is a past Chapter President of the Greater New York and Long Island Chapter of the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC).

The construction industry presents a unique opportunity for women, often filled with challenges that require quick thinking, strategic solutions and effective project management. Thirty years later, I am still just as passionate about this work as I was during my very first internship, and I’m proud of the relationships and projects I’ve been able to build throughout the New York Metro region and beyond.
