Let's Navigate this Together

Welcome to AECRE Connect.

Small Giants launched this website as a central hub of information specific to the Commercial Real Estate (AEC and CRE) industry. This is our way of doing our part for our community to stay connected, provide a variety of resources and guidance as we all navigate this together. This is a website, first and foremost, to connect people and give one another encouragement and hope. Please interact, post videos, check in every day—we are committed to posting actively each day. This will pass and we will be stronger together. In the meantime, as we hear events getting rescheduled, we will post to a shared calendar. As events go to virtual/online options, we will post these. The leading trade associations and companies are partnering with us to send updates and we are happy to do so. There is no better time to stay connected and engaged with valued friends, clients and industry.

We aim to unite the architecture, engineering, construction, and commercial real estate communities.
