Commercial Grade Architectural Floor and Wall Protection Products Offered in Small Quantities at Contractor Prices from A-Mezz Industrial

New Internet-based business, www.FloorMatStore.com, allows anyone to buy commercial grade stair treads, wall and corner guards, and work place floor mats at discounted contractor's prices. All products are offered in small or large quantities.

Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) March 31, 2022 -- A-Mezz Industrial Structures opened a new Internet retail business today to service property and hotel managers, small contractors and homeowners alike with their needs for high quality architectural products in small to large order quantities at discounted prices.

Locating and purchasing smaller quantities of commercial grade architectural products such as stair treads, impact wall guards and corner guards, carpet runners and work place mats has, until now, been a challenge and expensive for property managers, schools, churches and small business owners. Most manufactures and distributors are only interested in new construction and large order quantities. They won't sell in small quantities or offer discounted prices. These consumers are left to buy a lesser quality product from the local home center or lumber supply.

"We are serving the budget-minded consumer with smaller repair or replacement needs. Our products are the original commercial grade. Not consumer grade look-alikes," said Victor Fowler, president of A-Mezz Industrial Structures. Today's consumers are searching the Internet and not the yellow pages to find specialty products. The Internet has made it possible for FloorMat Store to open its doors to contractors and homeowners alike 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The FloorMat Store's web sight is easy to get to, simple to navigate and the discounted prices are same for any type of buyer.

About A-Mezz Industrial Structures
Founded in 1992, A-Mezz Industrial Structures Inc. is an Internet based distributor of pre-engineered, freestanding mezzanine systems, modular in-plant building systems and industrials safety guards. Its owners, Loretta and Victor Fowler, have over 20 years of industrial structures retailing experience and 14 years of Internet retailing experience.

"We have experienced first hand how selling over the Internet can lower your operating cost and expand your target area to wherever your next customer might be logging on from. The Internet is the secret to our success. Lower operating cost and larger market place means lower selling prices and more orders. We no longer feel like we're on a roller coaster ride, controlled by the economic climate of our locate market. Now our market is world wide, and we don't have to make un-wanted, annoying sales calls. We are now receiving sales calls from customers all across the country that want to buy our products. We believe in the Internet as a useful tool to help consumers quickly locate hard to find products such as ours. We felt there was a need to provide high quality architectural products in small quantities, with discounted pricing to the consumer whomever they might be. So, we opened the FloorMat Store," said Victor Fowler.

Builders and Apartment Owners Turn Trash Into Cash

Waste management company adds $456,000.00 in value to local apartment complex.

Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) March 31, 2022 -- In collaboration with JV Manufacturing Continue to save builders, existing office and apartment building owners thousands of dollars every month by installing an industrial trash compactor at the site. Cash Flow Equipment is a national Bellevue Washington-based sales-service-company that Specializes in analyzing waste expenses to determine if any business that produces an inordinate amount of trash would benefit by installing a trash compactor.

Investors and builders have learned of the value that one of these machines can add to their real estate investment. Recently purchased and launched by Jeremiah Roberson, he seeks to foster national understanding of how waste expenses unlike other utility costs are NOT always fixed. "What better way to add cash flow to the bottom line than to reduce what has been perceived for so long as a fixed utility expense," said Jeremiah Roberson, president of Cash Flow Equipment. "These machines give builders and investors the opportunity to increase property values by increasing N.O.I.” “With the way property values have been negatively affected with high vacancy and huge concessions, investors have been forced to really look at all expense categories to maximize their investments. ”Ecologically, these machines make total sense by putting roughly 5 times less mass of garbage into our landfills.

The average industrial trash compactor has a 5 to 1 compaction ratio. This ratio varies depending on the type of garbage being compacted. Recently, waste analysis performed on 16 apartment buildings in Seattle show an average increase in cash flow of $20,000 per year by installing a trash compactor. Savvy investors can easily place a $333,000.00 increase in value to their investment by using a 6% cap rate, which is about what investment real estate is trading for today.

The apartment complex that had $456,000.00 in value added, almost did not install a compactor and here was their reason: The property manager told cash flow equipment that installing a trash compactor was not in their budget. Even after providing the property manager with a proposal showing monthly added cash flow of over $3,000, the response was still “it’s not in the budget”. The solution was a lease to own plan that could be paid off at any time with no penalty. The property was able to completely install a trash compactor with no upfront cash and start saving over $3,000 per month. This machine paid for itself in less than one year. Educating builders, property managers and investors of this (money machine) is the business of Cash Flow Equipment.

Internet Becoming Primary Marketing Resource for Many Residential Contractors

More than 30,000 contractors now connect with online customers through ServiceMagic

Golden, CO (PRWEB) March 31, 2022 -- ServiceMagic®, Inc. (www.servicemagic.com), today reported that approximately 31,000 residential contractors and home service professionals are now marketing their services on the Internet through its online marketplace. The company has increased the number of member businesses in its national network of prescreened home service professionals by 30 percent over the past year and 11 percent over the quarter ending Dec. 31, 2004.

While traditionally consumers have turned to the Yellow Pages to find residential contractors, the use of print directories is projected to decrease by approximately 20 percent over the next four years according to The Kelsey Group, a Yellow Pages consulting and research firm. The Internet is quickly becoming a primary tool for consumers looking for residential contractors and home service professionals. A recent survey by The Kelsey Group and Bizrate.com reveals that 61 percent of consumers feel that the quality of online information is better than the quality of offline sources, including the print Yellow Pages. As a result, online marketing has become an effective marketing vehicle for residential contractors.

ServiceMagic specializes in bringing targeted customer leads to prescreened home service professionals based on their preferred geographic area and work type. The ServiceMagic marketplace platform moves information between customer and contractor to facilitate a good match and connection. ServiceMagic network member businesses are screened for applicable state licensing and insurance and pay only for the customer leads they receive.

In a recent survey, ServiceMagic member businesses that have been with the service for a year or more reported growing their business on average by 28 percent. “My business has grown 35 percent as a direct result of my ServiceMagic leads,” said Jim Wilczynski, owner of Home Services Group and a prescreened ServiceMagic member business. “Online marketing has proven to be my best and most cost-effective source of new business.”

“ServiceMagic has been helping residential contractors grow their businesses through the Internet for the last six years,” said Michael Beaudoin, co-CEO of ServiceMagic. “Our network continues to grow steadily because ServiceMagic has proven to be a cost-effective and targeted online marketing tool for residential contractors.”

To date, ServiceMagic has facilitated more than 3.7 million consumer requests for home services, representing an estimated $8.5 billion in consumer spending nationwide.

Georgia City Adopts Land Development Model for All New Growth

Utilizing the traditional model, Locust Grove offers prime Georgia land for sale.

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB via Newscuts) March 30, 2022 -- As the popularity of the Traditional Neighborhood Development land development model grows, the town of Locust Grove, GA, has adapted it for its own plans for development, offering premium Georgia land for sale. The area under development in Locust Grove is thus slated to become one of the most prime property choices in the county.

"Henry County is one of the fastest growing counties in the nation, and Locust Grove’s choice of TND will make it one of the hottest places to buy Georgia land for sale in the state," said Telmo Bermeo, Associate Broker with America’s Network Realty Group, Inc. "Already, 341 lots have been approved for this new land development, and as many as 243 acres in the area are available for sale."

TND, which pays close attention to the social and environmental benefits of a well-planned neighborhood, has already found success in towns like Reunion, GA, and Seaside and Celebration, FL. Typically, such neighborhoods contain a variety of houses, with parks, schools, playgrounds and civic buildings situated conveniently from residential sites.

The 243 acres of residential R2 Zoning property is ready for development. It is a Conservation Residential Subdivision, so costs of development are minimized by creating swathes of green space and packing lots into a smaller area. R2 Zoning yields three lots to an acre, and for the land under consideration, even R3 Zoning can be obtained for a higher return on investment. The property is only 30 minutes from downtown Atlanta and is situated in the midst of an area that has experienced rapid growth and land scarcity in recent times. Current prices in this area tend to be undervalued for this type development.

"This is really prime property, and the news of TND will only make it more special," said Telmo Bermeo. "With that sort of farsighted neighborhood development planned, this will become one of the best areas to live in the state of Georgia."

About America’s Network Realty Group, Inc.
America’s Network Realty Group, Inc., has been in the business of selling property to land developers, Home Builders and Land Investors in Georgia since 1992. America’s Network Realty Group currently has approximately 15 million dollars worth of property in their inventory.

Concrete Washout Systems, Inc. Rapid Expansion Moves Them into Central California

JWT Site Management will begin servicing builders and contractors in Fresno and Madera Counties of Central California.

Elk Grove, CA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 30, 2022 -- Concrete Washout Systems, Inc., announced today that it has signed a licensing agreement with JWT Site Management of Clovis, California, who will distribute and service Concrete Washout Systems (CWS) in the Central California counties of Madera, Fresno, Kings and Tulare.

JWT Site Management currently operates as a construction site management company providing a full compliment of erosion control and storm water pollution prevention services to contractors, builders and developers.

"JWT Site Management is eager to be the distributor for Concrete Washout Systems to contractors and developers in Central California. As the needs of contractors and developers grow, there is no question that the concrete washout bins will be a great addition in staying compliant with SWPPP," stated Bart Jones, owner of JWT Site Management. "With the positive feedback we have already received, we feel the demand for concrete washout bins will be overwhelming. In addition, we look forward to building a strong business relationship with Concrete Washout Systems," added Mr. Jones.

"We are excited to have JWT on board as a partner. Their existing business relationships, understanding and knowledge of the erosion control industry will help propel their transition into this new niche market," stated Kevin Mickelson, Vice President of Concrete Washout Systems, Inc. "The potential in their market is untapped and there has been tremendous interest developing due to state and regional stormwater and waste diversion regulations. JWT will be providing a much needed risk management solution and providing a value added service to compliment their current services," added Mr. Mickelson.

CWS is currently seeking licensed partners in numerous markets across the nation. Each partner will own and operate a Concrete Washout Systems business in their designated region, where they will be responsible for all aspects of the business.

The patent pending CWS is a portable, self-contained and watertight bin that controls, captures and contains concrete washout material and wastewater. It allows trade personnel to easily washout concrete trucks, pumps and equipment on site and facilitates easy off site recycling of the same concrete materials and wastewater, while protecting the storm drain system from potential illegal discharges. The off site recycling component creates an even more environmentally sound application as concrete material is diverted away from landfills and recycled. This system replaces other outdated washout BMP’s, which are costly, unsightly and damaging to the environment since their containment value diminishes, due to inherently faulty material, over use and lack of maintenance.

About Concrete Washout Systems, Inc.
Concrete Washout Systems is a risk management specialist and industry pioneer in concrete washout and wastewater removal, treatment and recycling. The patent-pending Concrete Washout Systems provides a cost effective, environmentally friendly and compliance alternative for homebuilders, contractors, ready mix and pump operators and environmental engineering firms.

Infinium Architectural Walls Launches “Uni-Mountable, Press-Fit” Interior Office Wall System

Infinium Office Wall Systems are better for our environment, are lower in cost, and are easier to install because of uni-mountable, press-fit design.

Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) March 30, 2022 -- Infinium Architectural Wall Systems has re-defined movable walls by combining its patented “Press-Fit” technology with its newly developed “Uni-Mountable” technology. “Uni-Mountable” technology combines the simplicity and speed of unitized, modular wall panel systems with the convenience and accessibility of demountable wall systems.

Most pre-fabricated wall systems are designed for specific wall functions such as executive offices, managerial offices, glass fronts, technology integration, shop floor offices and even clean rooms. The challenge was to integrate all of these application characteristics into a single wall system.

“We weren’t going to limit our customer by providing just a demountable system or just a unitized system. We were going to provide the best features of both”, said Shawn Gaffney, Founder and President of Infinium Architectural Wall Systems.

“After listening to our customers’ and viewing their businesses as a whole we were faced with the challenge of developing a single system that met numerous requirements. They needed a system with few parts and pieces that installed rapidly and provided easy access for technology. They also wanted the system to provide a variety of aesthetic choices and design options to project the correct company image while meeting the functional needs of their entire business.”

Combining its patented press fit technology with uni-mountability, Infinium developed a unitized, demountable full height wall panel system consisting of only seven parts that meets the requirements of the entire building interior, is lower cost and is better for our environment.

“By blending the two technologies we now have a single platform with only seven components that can be used on the production floor, in the computer room, executive offices, managerial offices, conference rooms and clean rooms, continued Mr. Gaffney. One system that serves the general and specific needs of our customers.”

Spanish Speaking Construction Workers Have Someone In Their Corner for Safety

Spanish Speaking Construction Workers can work safer thanks to assistance from Maria Isabel O'Connell, Bilingual Safety Consultant and trainer. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Hispanics suffer a higher injury and fatality rate in construction. Well known safety activist is changing this dynamic by assisting workers on construction projects, arrive home safely each day.

SAN JOSÉ, CA (PRWEB) March 30, 2022 -- The high accident rate among U.S. Hispanic Construction Workers is beginning to change thanks to the actions of Maria Isabel O’Connell, of SAFETRAN, LLC. The well known Bilingual safety consultant and workplace activist will ensure Latinos arrive home safely everyday. You’ll often find Maria out on the jobsite with her workers on bridge, highway, pipeline and general construction projects throughout the Bay Area and Central California.


Originally from Guadalupe Victoria, Mexico, this hardworking safety activist concentrates on getting the “Safety Message Out” to all her workers. Holding impromptu safety meetings in Spanish, she translates OSHA regulations, and common sense safety rules to workers in the field. The recent catastrophic loss of life from a pipeline explosion in Walnut Creek shows how important OSHA safety training in Spanish is for our industry.

SAFETRAN is cosignatory to the United Brotherhood of Carpenters (UBC), and Maria and team tells workers everyday, “Don’t forget, safety is first and your family depends on you working safe everyday.” She also has a message for company owners about their commitment to safety and says, “How can companies expect their workers to understand hazards on the job and protect themselves, if we speak to them in a foreign tongue?” It is time that safety training be language specific, as evidences by Federal OSHA’s Spanish Language website.

-Federal OSHA Spanish Language Site
http://www.osha.gov/as/opa/spanish/index.html

-National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) (Spanish)
http://www.cdc.gov/spanish/niosh/

Maria and her team have recently begun a new initiative to bring desperately needed safety training to Day Workers in San Rafael, San José and Watsonville. Armed with hardhats, safety glasses, and Spanish Language training materials Maria will certify and safety train workers left out of traditional training resources.

HomebuilderStocks.com Reports: Major Homebuilder Companies Report Record Quarterly Gains

US Department Of Commerce Report States That New Home Sales for February Increased By 9.4%

Point Roberts, WA (PRWEB) March 30, 2022 -- www.HomebuilderStocks.com, (HBS) a global investment news and research portal for the homebuilder sector, reports upon the release of a Commerce Department report, stating that new home sales for February increased by 9.4%. Both analysts and market participants remain firmly bullish in their forecasts for the coming year.

HBS does not make stock recommendations but offers a unique free information portal for investors to explore news, articles, and recent research. The site is currently compensated by featured company International Barrier Technology Inc. (IBTGF: OTCBB; IBH: TSXV).

US Department Of Commerce Report States That Home Sales for February Increased By 9.4%

HomebuilderStocks.com, Monday, March 28, 2022 -- According to a report released last Thursday by the US Department of Commerce, US based new home sales increased by 9.4% in February. This represents the greatest percentage increase for the homebuilder market in four years. February sales matched those of December and were slightly behind the record sales of October which amounted to 1.304 million.

The report continued to say that the median sales price of new homes for February was US$230,700, and the seasonally adjusted estimate for new houses for sale at the end of last month was 444,000. Despite the fact that Fed interest rate hikes seem likely to continue, at least in the short term, economists believe that rising incomes and appreciating home values will keep demand in this sector strong.

Once again, the major competitors in the sector reported record quarterly gains. Toll Brothers (NYSE:TOL), the nation's leading builder of luxury homes, who have been setting weekly sales records nearly every week this quarter, reported record results for earnings, revenues, contracts and backlog for its first quarter ended January 31, 2005. First quarter 2005 earnings per share of $1.33 increased 115% over first quarter 2004. Speaking with HomebuilderStocks.com, Fred Cooper, Senior Vice President of Finance said, “We are seeing continued strong demand across our luxury home product lines, and we believe that with our significant land position in lot constrained markets we are positioned for continued growth.”

Lennar Corporation reported 39% increase in net earnings for first quarter 2005. The company reported first quarter revenues of US$2.4 billion, an increase of 29% over the same period last year. Lennar also reported an increase of 9% in the number of new orders received. This caused the company to raise their EPS goal from US$6.90 to US$7.15.

KB Home (NYSE: KBH) also reported record first quarter 2005 results. The company’s revenues grew by 21% to $1.64 billion, pushing their EPS up 61% to $2.82. KB Home raised its earnings estimate for 2005 to $15.75 per diluted share, up $1.25 from its previous estimate.

Sector growth and a bullish housing outlook were reported on in an original article by www.HomebuilderStocks.com at the beginning of January ("Homebuilder Stocks Finish Up A Record Breaking Year With Strong Projections For 2005." Click here for full article: http://www.homebuilderstocks.com/Companies/HomebuilderStocks/Articles/Homebuilder_Growth.asp).

SLIDE-LOK Garage Storage Solutions Are Manufactured From 100% Long-Lasting, Durable Plywood

SLIDE-LOK Garage Storage Cabinets Announced That Garage Storage, Garage Cabinets, And All SLIDE-LOK Garage Storage Solutions Are Manufactured From 100% Long-Lasting, Durable Plywood. In 27 Years Of Cabinet Making, SLIDE-LOK Has Experimented With Cabinet Making Materials And Found That 100% Plywood Produces The Best, Longest Lasting Storage Solutions – Go “Wild about Wood.”

(PRWEB) March 29, 2022 -- SLIDE-LOK Garage Storage Cabinets Announced That Garage Storage, Garage Cabinets, And All SLIDE-LOK Garage Storage Solutions Are Manufactured From 100% Long-Lasting, Durable Plywood. In 27 Years Of Cabinet Making, SLIDE-LOK Has Experimented With Cabinet Making Materials And Found That 100% Plywood Produces The Best, Longest Lasting Storage Solutions – Go “Wild about Wood.”


Mesa, AZ (PRWEB) March 29, 2022 - SLIDE-LOK Garage Storage Cabinets announced that their Garage Storage, Garage Cabinets, and all SLIDE-LOK Garage Storage Solutions are manufactured from 100% long-lasting, durable Plywood. In 27 years of cabinet making, SLIDE-LOK has experimented with cabinet making materials and found that 100% Plywood produces the best, longest lasting Storage Solutions.

“Years ago, we experimented with other materials including particle board,” said President, Gary Smith. “And every year, we test the new particle board, and all the other components that are used on the market today. I guess you can say that after the tests, we at SLIDE-LOK are Wild about Wood.”

SLIDE-LOK Garage Storage Solutions – Garage Cabinets, Garage Storage Cabinets, Office Cabinets, Panty Cabinets, and Work Benches from 100% Plywood have “produced the results we are seeking,” said Smith, “garage storage solutions that last and last.” “Fact is,” says Smith, “plywood is just stronger than other competitive products that are manufactured from particle board and other components.”

SLIDE-LOK Garage Storage Cabinets tests used, competitive cabinets made from other components, including particle board. “And the old cabinets are easy to test because we are replacing so many that are made from particle board, and other components, with the new SLIDE-LOK Garage Storage Cabinets. And sometimes,” joked Smith, “we volunteer, as a courtesy to our customers, to take the old used ones away for testing.”

SLIDE-LOK has found through those tests that the old garage storage cabinets fail in most uncontrolled environments, like the garage, because most manufacturers today tend to use an inexpensive, low density, low pressure particle board - even when the manufacturer states these cabinets should only be used for interior applications. So unless your garage is inside your home, makeover your garage with plywood, long-lasting, durable plywood that combines the flexibility of a modular storage system designed by SLIDE-LOK Garage Storage Cabinets http://www.slide-lok.com. And that combination has produced the fastest growing Garage Storage Dealer Network in the United States and Canada.

So now is the time to decide on your extreme garage makeover. Chose the tested, durable, modular, SLIDE-LOK Garage Storage System manufactured with 100% Plywood, not particle board, and that includes plywood sides, face frames, and concealed European hinges. All this is crafted with the strongest joint in the world, the patented SLIDE-LOK Dovetail Joint that is far stronger than any other type of dowel, screw, nail or toggle.

SLIDE-LOK Garage Storage Cabinets is “Wild about Wood” so invest in a long-lasting, durable, 100% Plywood Garage Storage Solution from SLIDE-LOK for Garage Cabinets, Garage Storage, Office Cabinets, Pantry Cabinets, and Workbenches.

SLIDE-LOK Garage Storage Cabinets has Dealers across the United States and Canada, and Smith wants to remind you that even when you do not see a SLIDE-LOK Dealer in our 43 state Dealer Network -- SLIDE-LOK is continues to seek Dealers Applications in Delaware, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Nebraska, more in Texas and New York, and across the United Sates and Canada -- Smith reminds you to be “Wild about Wood.”

So be “Wild about Wood” no matter where you live because other components are heavier – not stronger than wood; they do not support their own weight after a few years in the garage; these components are impacted by moisture and humidity so they tend to sag, and when doors are attached with a screw – “you are going to have a screw loose somewhere,” that is unless your are “Wild About Wood.”

Today, SLIDE-LOK Garage Storage Cabinets are so eye-appealing that they look like Custom Cabinets, and they are being used in Business Offices as well as the uncontrolled environment of the garage; they are used in the pantry, in the hobby or craft room as well as in the home, and home office.

The SLIDE-LOK Storage Solution is a superior storage solution because SLIDE-LOK Garage Cabinets and Storage Cabinets are designed by the experts at SLIDE-LOK who ask you the questions about your unique storage needs that custom cabinet makers forget to take into consideration. That is because SLIDE-LOK has designed so many garage, home, and office storage solutions that SLIDE-LOK already knows about the storage problems created from those who lack the 27 years of experience in designing and installing thousands of storage solutions.

In fact, SLIDE-LOK encourages you to develop a garage organization plan that
places all those garage storage items in order, and anywhere but on the floor of your garage where every open space is precious. SLIDE-LOK has developed the most unique storage solution available on the market today for the garage, home, and office. SLIDE-LOK is a series of Modular Garage Cabinets and Storage Cabinets. The modular SLIDE-LOK System consists of 8 basic cabinets that are can be mixed, matched, and stacked. This means that even when your storage space looks like a jig saw puzzle with one piece missing, you can develop a SLIDE-LOK Storage System that combines all the pieces of your puzzle into your perfect storage solution regardless of the configuration of your storage area.

"You can even design your garage storage solution online at Jack's Design Center http://www.slide-lok.com/designctr.shtm, or with one of our storage professionals. Online, we are able to work with you to develop, save, and print several configurations for your garage, home or office until you decide which one meets your unique storage needs today. And then schedule installation of your new storage solution tomorrow.

So become one of the proud few with a new Garage Storage System from
SLIDE-LOK, and put your car back in the garage where your car is safe.

Remodeling Contractor Writes Booklet to Help Consumers Avoid Top Five Mistakes When Remodeling

Every year thousands of consumers put their investment dollars, and potentially their home in jeopardy by making the wrong decisions when it comes to remodeling. Erik Sundquist of Sundquist Associates in Redwood City offers consumers a solution. He’s authored an information booklet entitled “105 Essential Tips for Maximizing a Home Remodel”.

Redwood City, CA (PRWEB) March 28, 2022 -- “All too often people don’t make wise decisions with their investment dollars,” says Mr. Sundquist. “Often they must go through a learning curve before they understand the process.” “My goal in authoring this booklet was to help consumers circumvent the often costly and time consuming learning curve, and help them leverage my lifetime of remodeling and building experience”. “It was easy to write because it is based on real life experiences of talking to hundreds of consumers, many who had no previous remodeling experience”.

According to this year’s report from the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University, “The Changing Structure of the Home Remodeling Industry”, remodeling expenditures in 2003 totaled 233 billion dollars. That pace is expected to continue with an inflation adjusted annual growth of 3%. A Better Business Bureau website states “Each year, home remodeling contractor problems rank among the top 10 consumer complaints to the Better Business Bureau. “Clearly the consumer needs more educating about how to go about a remodeling project” says Mr. Sundquist.

“The top five mistakes I see people make are; paying too large of an up front deposit, failing to get mechanics lien releases, over building for the neighborhood, employing a contractor based solely on low price, and underinsuring the post-remodeled home,” says Mr. Sundquist. “Any one of these can be very costly, but a combination of two or more could in the worst case put your home at serious risk”.

More information on the booklet can be accessed at www.remodelingtips.net or by calling 916-652-4427.

Sundquist Associates is a residential design/build remodeling firm in the San Francisco Bay Area. Erik Sundquist took over management of the company from his Father George in 1995, who founded the family business in 1969. Sundquist Associates has won several awards, the most recent being the 2005 National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) CoTY (Contractor of the Year) award.

Origen Financial Moves to New 40,000 SF Fort Worth Texas Facility

Origen Financial has moved their north Texas operations to a 40,000 SF suite in the newly constructed 80,000 SF Mercantile II building. Mercantile Partners was the developer and Bob Moore Construction was the general contractor for this combined building project / finish-out.

(PRWEB) March 28, 2022 -- Origen Financial has relocated their North Texas operations to a 40,000 SF suite in Fort Worth's Mercantile II Building in Mercantile Park. General Contractor Bob Moore Construction worked with Hardy McCullah/MLM Architects, client representative CBRE from Dallas, Texas, and property owner Mercantile Partners to finish out the suite while constructing the 80,000 SF Mercantile II building shell.

“We reviewed all the existing space in Tarrant County,” said Doug Williamson, Vice President - Servicing Operations for Origen Financial. “We had previous experience with Mercantile Partners, a very good landlord for us. They presented this facility to us while it was still in the early planning stages, with the opportunity to incorporate various tenant improvements directly into the shell’s development. As a result, we were able to value-engineer a variety of features before the first shovel of dirt was turned, and the finished suite looks very upscale. This opportunity turned out to be a very good one for us.”

The resulting facility provides a quality balance of comfort, functionality and polished presentation. A large open area stocked with ergonomically designed modular furniture and 22 enclosed offices dominate the Origen suite’s work space. The facility includes a substantial network infrastructure, including a computer center with its own environmental and power control systems. The entire facility has its own power backup and can continue to operate even with a loss of electricity to the building. Visitors are welcomed in a finely finished reception area with a split wood / carpet floor pattern, and other special rooms include a large training area with raised access flooring, multiple conference rooms and a boardroom with staggered pattern plank flooring and a suspended diffused lighting fixture.

“The suite was designed to be comfortable, open and easy to work in,” said Williamson. “Our employees are just overwhelmed because the suite is beautiful, so much better than what we had before. They're so thankful for how the suite looks and the way it was designed and built.”

Williamson was just as enthusiastic about his working relationship with Bob Moore Construction. “Ed McGuire and Matt Mitchell run a tight ship!” he exclaimed. “Their meetings were always productive. The two superintendents on this project were extremely easy to work with. Jeff Taylor was always helpful and on call to respond to questions. He even put off his honeymoon to finish the job. Stacy Langston was the same way, always very responsive and professional. I watched them as they worked with their subcontractors, and the superintendents really made sure things got done right."

“The weather made this project’s schedule a challenge,” said Matt Mitchell, Project Manager for Bob Moore Construction. “Fortunately, Doug Williamson had a clear vision of what he wanted from the very beginning and really understood construction processes. Our superintendents, Stacy and Jeff, did a phenomenal job of working through the rain days, while fulfilling a variety of floor plan design changes and special electrical, data and security requests. We've got an excellent, longstanding relationship with Norman Coates of Hardy McCullah/MLM Architects and Hal Hardister with Mercantile Partners. As always, they did a great job of providing everything they could to help get Origen into their suite comfortably and on time."

Bob Moore Construction Sponsors 2005 Student Design Build Competition for ASC/QUOIN

General Contractor Bob Moore Construction was the sponsor for the Design/Build Category of the 2005 ASC/QUOIN Region V Student Constuction Competion. This is the second year Bob Moore Construction has sponsored this event, which provides project development and bidding experience to regional university students.

(PRWEB) March 28, 2022 -- General Contractor Bob Moore Construction was sponsor for the Design/Build Category of the 2005 Associated Schools of Construction (ASC)/QUOIN Region V Student Constuction Competion.

The competition, which took place in February at the Gaylord Texan Resort in Grapevine, Texas, featured more than 100 students from ten universities in the categories of Design/Build, Heavy/Civil and Commercial Building.

The Design/Build Category pitted Texas A&M;, Oklahoma State University, the University of Oklahoma and Texas Tech in head-to-head competition, where the students were tasked to prepare and present bids on real-world scenarios. A panel of representatives from the Metroplex real estate development and construction industry judged the students presentations. The students competed for bragging rights, a trophy and a donation to their college. The winner of each category moves on to the national competition in Las Vegas, Nevada, where they compete against teams from colleges all across the country.

Texas A&M; earned top honors in the Design / Build Competition. Oklahoma State University placed second and the University of Oklahoma came in third. Meloni McDaniel from the University of Oklahoma earned special recognition as the top presenter in the Design / Build Category.

Bob Moore Construction sponsored the Design / Build Competition, providing the scenario, coordinating the judges and running the competition. 2005 marked the second consecutive year for the company to sponsor this event.

“This experience offers benefits to the students on so many levels,” said Larry Knox, Vice President of Preconstruction for Bob Moore Construction and presenter of the Design / Build Competition awards. “The students put their education to use in a real world scenario and really get a sense of what it’s like to bid and present a project. They receive valuable feedback from industry experts on their work. They meet with members of the Dallas / Fort Worth construction community where they may choose to relocate after graduation, so there’s networking potential as well.

“Bob Moore Construction is very pleased to support QUOIN and ASC in their efforts to provide educational experiences to students in our region’s colleges,” Knox added. “The students there will be working for us and with us in the coming years. We’re happy to help them to develop into the kinds of professionals we want representing our industry in the years to come.”

Preventive Maintenance for Your Electric System

Preventive maintenance for your home may save you the stress of having to spend your weekend off addressing a problem and could save you the considerable expense often caused by crisis situations.

(PRWEB) March 27, 2022 -- The following recommendations for your electric system will keep problems to a minimum and increase the overall safety, appearance and good working order of your home.

1) Check the condition of lamp cords, extension cords, and plugs. Replace cords, etc. at the first sign of wear or damage. The rating of lamp cords and extension cords is rarely as high as the permanent wire which was installed in and throughout the walls of the house. If these cords are used for an appliance or appliances which overload the capacity of the cord, but not the wiring in the wall, the extension cord will become warm or hot. Continued use will deteriorate the insulation and create a fire hazard. Lightweight extension cords should never be installed for permanent use and should never be used for high draw appliances (e.g., hair dryers, power tools, etc.).

2) Check all portable appliances and power tools for loose or frayed wires, have them repaired before using.

3) Check all exposed wiring (e.g., in an unfinished basement or garage, etc.), switches and receptacles for wear, damage, or malfunction. Have these components repaired or replaced immediately.

4) Check the exterior service cable. Deteriorated insulation allows water to enter and creates a potential fire hazard. Water may follow the wire and corrode contacts at the meter socket and/or the panel box. A deteriorated service cable should be replaced.

5) Check for distribution overloads. If fuses blow or circuit breakers trip frequently, contact an electrician to determine the cause and to make the necessary repairs. The size of the wire dictates the size of the fuse or circuit breaker (e.g., a 14-gauge wire should be protected by a 15-amp fuse or circuit breaker, a 12-gauge wire should be protected by a 20-amp fuse or circuit breaker, and a 10-gauge wire should be protected by a 30-amp fuse or circuit breaker).

6) Check exterior lighting to make sure their weather-proof boxes are watertight. Outdoor circuits and receptacles in bathrooms or near on kitchen counters should be protected by a supplementary circuit device called a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI). A GFCI operates on balance in the circuit as compared to circuit breakers and fuses, which respond to quantity. GFCI devices operate with a transformer which senses the balance of current in a given circuit. If current is diverted the GFCI device will sense it turn off the power. The current that leaves the circuit creates a differential and causes the circuit to open or turn off.). They help prevent fatal electric shocks.

Investment Properties in the Fourth 18 Hole Signature Golf Course in Larnaca, Cyprus

Backed by the European Golf Federation, the new 18 hole golf course will soon start taking shape in Larnanca. Investment opportunities here start from CYP£68,500 with a minimum capital uplift potential of between 40% to 60% in 2 years time. Similar apartments in existing golf courses are selling for over 50% more expensive today.

(PRWEB) March 26, 2022 -- One of the first new golf courses planned for Cyprus will soon be taking shape a few kilometres outside Larnaca, in the valley of a small village known as Tersefanou. This spectacular project is developed as an 18 hole signature golf course designed and backed by the European Golf Federation. At present, there are only three golf courses in the whole of Cyprus, and all are located in the surrounding area of Pafos. By offering a resort catering for high quality hospitality services to foreign and Cypriot citizens, this new course is aimed at increasing the Cyprus tourism market and to make a positive contribution to the Cypriot economy.

The resort will feature a hotel, club house with multiple restaurants and bars, a state of the art business centre, equestrian facilities, a retail village complex, entertainment area and spa, a number of villas, 1,000+ apartments and a 6,000m golf course - all lying in a scenic valley with beautiful natural rock formations and grand trees adding maturity to a relatively new course. With the apartments and villas being built over four phases, some of them are situated on the hills around the course and will have magnificent views overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The resort is designed to be a comprehensive and integrated golf and leisure resort that combines the advantages and privileges of living in Cyprus.

There are currently three major golf courses in Cyprus and with the golf craze sweeping the island, plans are underway for the development of four or five more within the next five years. The present three are situated very much in the same region of Pafos, with the three new 18-hole golf courses ones planned in the districts of Limassol (Pentakomo), Larnaca (Oroklini) and Famagusta (Agia Napa) by the consortia of local authorities and hoteliers.

In the cases of Oroklini and Agia Napa, the government has decided to offer public land to the consortia on a long-term lease. The relevant environmental impact studies have already been completed.

The Cyprus Golf Federation, which was elected as a new member of the European Golf Federation in 2001, has joined 31 other countries in promoting the sport in Europe. It has been active in organizing local golf tournaments and matches with British golf societies, and the PGA has been to Cyprus to inspect the golf courses. For the last two years, the Federation has organized the first and second annual Cyprus Amateur Golf Open Championship Tournaments which took place at the golf clubs of Tsada and Secret Valley and attracted golfers from 15 countries in Europe and the US.

Investors Provident have secured the rights to 13 apartments in a development called Regal Gardens on this fourth 18 hole golf course in Larnaca. Situated only 500m away from the course, all apartments in this complex will include light and airy living spaces complete with terraces and/or balconies with views of the course and surrounding area. The complex will include gardens, swimming pool and tennis courts for recreational purposes. The current master plan and space allocation has been modified by a consortia of local authorities and hoteliers to reflect the predominantly apartment orientated concept.

Our research today shows that these golf properties will significantly increase in value during the build program of 2-3 years. If compared with current prices of similar apartments on the three existing courses in Cyprus, it can be seen that there is a potential for a minimum capital growth of between 40% - 60% within the next two to three years.

Key Facts about Regal Gardens & Surrounding Area:
- All apartments in Regal Gardens will have commanding views of the sea and the horizon and the golf course
- Approximately 500m from the golf course
- All apartments come freehold with terraces, gardens and balconies
- Communal areas will include two tennis courts and swimming pool
- Whole area will be extensively landscaped with local species of trees and other plants
- Pre-launch availability of all apartments on only the 4th 18 hole golf development on the Island of Cyprus
- Only 30% payment required upfront and no further payments until June 2006
- Properties on the three existing golf courses are well over 50% of the pre-launch prices
- Capital growth potential of between 40% - 60% in the next two to three years
- Option to resell at anytime before completion in January 2007
- A few kilometres west of Larnaca and an ideal spot for holidays
- 7km to Larnaca Airport, 10km to the City Centre, 5km to the beach, and less than 1km to the golf course
- One car parking space included with each apartment
- 10 years building guarantee on all apartments
- Prices start from only CYP£68,500

Dallas Contracting Co., Inc. Completes Used Equipment Salvage and Interior Demolition Project

Dallas Contracting Co., Inc., a specialized contractor providing demolition, equipment salvage, dismantlement, onsite concrete crushing, scrap metal recycling and used/surplus equipment sales to various industries recently completed the interior demolition and removal of used equipment from a chemical manufacturer in New Jersey.

South Plainfield, NJ (PRWEB) March 26, 2022 -- The client’s goal for the project was to have all equipment removed, interior demolition conducted and cleanup of debris completed without cost to their company. The chemical manufacturing building was approximately 100,000 square feet and contained various equipment and tanks for processing, packaging, filling and storage. There was also a significant amount of equipment and tanks outside of the plant in a courtyard. Pallets and debris needed to be cleaned up in and around the building. In addition, offices and labs had to be cleaned out of miscellaneous debris.

Dallas Contracting Co., Inc. utilized a combination of our interior demolition and rigging crews and our investment recovery and used equipment-purchasing experts to meet the demands of the client.

Dallas’s first goal was to itemize, salvage and rig out all the resalable used equipment. Packaging and filling line equipment including conveyors were dismantled, match marked and sent to several end user buyers. Stainless steel storage and process tanks were rigged out of the facility using forklifts and equipment rollers. There were over ten (10) stainless steel tanks of various sizes and capacities. Some of the tanks were immediately sold. The remaining tanks were sent to our storage yard to be inventoried for future sales. There were also compressors, transformers, mixers, pumps, valves, and scales that were placed on pallets and either sold immediately or brought back to the yard for inventory and future sale.

Equipment that could not be salvaged for resale included several large damaged stainless steel tanks and miscellaneous extremely old and outdated parts. The stainless steel tanks were cut using a plasma torch and placed into a scrap container for offsite recycling. The miscellaneous parts and metal scraps were also placed into scrap metal containers and sent offsite for recycling. Dallas Contracting Co., Inc. maximized the value of the scrap metal by sorting ferrous and non-ferrous metals and through our strong relationships in the scrap metal market.

There were several loads of debris consisting mostly of pallets and remaining office paper scrap. The debris was sent offsite for non-hazardous disposal.

Through Dallas Contracting Co., Inc.’s investment recovery and used equipment recovery services, we were able to not only offset the demolition costs but were able to pay the client. The client, who expected at best to break even on the project, was extremely pleased with the outcome.

The entire project was completed in a month. There were no injuries or incidents as safety is the number one priority for Dallas Contracting.

Small Reprographic Firms Mean Savings for Architects and Contractors

Reprogaphic stores in smaller markets are more economical.

(PRWEB) March 25, 2022 -- Technology has meant new ways of creating and doing business for architects and building professionals. Computer programs for drawing plans, digital files instead of paper drawings, internet plan rooms and email have all made an impact. The benefits are great. However, there are factors that can increase your costs.

Digital reprographics has taken the place of the traditional blueprint. The benefits are crisp clean, detailed, fade-proof prints, the ability to resize and mirror drawings, digital plan storage and easy sharing of plans through the internet and email. However, along with the benefits come some drawbacks, particularly in the cost of reproduction. Not only do you have printing costs, but drawing files must be made compatible for printing.

As with blueprints, hand drawings are going by the wayside. AutoCad and similar computer programs are becoming the preferred method of designing building plans. The problem with these types of drawings is that they are in a vector file format. In a vector file, you have two points and the program recognizes that there is a line connecting the two points and fills in the line. Printers used to reproduce these large format drawings only print raster files. Raster files use a series of dots to represent lines and images. In order to print the vector files, they must be plotted or converted into a raster image. With building drawings having numerous pages (each page is a file) the cost can add up quickly.

Reprographic firms in smaller markets may be the solution to cut the costs of large document printing. While actual printing costs may be comparable in large and small markets, the cost of additional services can vary greatly. Most of these smaller firms charge lower rates for file conversion, plotting and scanning to file/disc. The markets they serve simply can not support the rates charged in many larger cities. Files can be converted or hard copies can be scanned to disc and returned via email, shipped on disc, or printed and shipped back to the architect, contractors, subcontractors, or client. In addition, these smaller reprographers can provide faster turnaround time and more personalized services to meet a company’s needs.

Henne's Drafting & Art Supply, Inc., located in Mansfield, Ohio, offers full reprographic services and affordable pricing. Henne’s has two KIP printers, with the ability to print TIFF Group 4, TLC Tiled Format, CALS Group 4, PCX Monochrome, CIT Intergraph and PDF Adobe files. Hard copies can be scanned into any of these file types. AutoCad and other files can be converted into PDF or DWF files. Turnaround on most projects is same or next day.

Brand New Twist to “New Home” Ownership

The New Home Program - 5% Down Buys The Land - 100% Financing On Labor And Material Cost - 20% Equity Or More Upon Completion - We Don't Require Perfect Credit - Over 40,000 Homes Built

(PRWEB) March 24, 2022 -- FGG specializes in helping people become qualified to be a New Home owner when they felt there was no possibility. FGG has gone Nationwide with their exciting new method of getting people qualified for New Home Ownership. Alex Jakubowski, the President of FGG stated, “This is a very rewarding business, everyday people are qualifying for their Dream Home. The biggest problem we have is people prejudging their ability to qualify. People who have been turned down several times are amazed they have qualified for their own New Home. Last week one of our clients, had been turned down for a Credit Card the week before, then qualified for a New $200,000 Home through our FGG program. ”

The company says there is a few criteria customers must meet before they are approved to take part in the program. Applicants must have a down payment equal to 5 percent of the land value; they must have a household income of approximately $40,000, and they must agree to act as project manager.

If clients already own their land, no down payment is required.

Clients may choose from 22 styles of homes – ranch, two-story, split-level, etc. – with three to five bedrooms.

All homes are stick built from the ground up and range in size from 1,200 square feet to 2,800 square feet.

Clients must complete their home within 1 year of receiving their loan. No payments are due until the clients have moved into their new home.

Mr. Jakubowski said, “One of the major strengths of our program is clients can easily build equity into their New Home by acting as their own project manager. By doing this our clients have more control over the building process. They will select their own land, apply for permits and hire contractors and our agency helps assist with each process.”

The program guarantees at least 20 percent equity on the very first day clients move into their homes.

Upon completion of the home, homeowners get a mortgage from the lending institution of their choice and pay the construction loan.

David Allen SR a representative of FGG, puts potential homebuilder's in touch with the agency that offers the loans.

Roofing Information Source Increases Value to the Consumer and Contractor by Offering Blog

By offering a roofing blog in addition to more traditional roofing informaiton RoofHelper has been able to offer users an enhanced learning experience.

(PRWEB) March 24, 2022 -- RoofHelper, (www.roofhelper.com) an online resource for consumers covering all aspects of roof replacement and repair has recently taken a step to increase their value to the end user.

“We have always strived to offer solid roofing information and advice to the average home owner.” said Scott Randall, spokesman for the company. “We felt it was time to offer our visitors more than just the standard help they might find on any number of other websites." "We wanted to go beyond offering articles on materials, styles, and of course the traditional terms glossary.”

So in December of 2004 much discussion and testing began on how best to offer up to date information on new roofing techniques, materials and general industry news. A blog format was finally chosen largely because of the ease of updating information.

According to Randall, “The RoofHelper blog has been well received and offers new information to our regular visitors as well as offering additional benifits.”

Three months into this project approximately 10% of the visitor pool to RoofHelper finds the site by organic search engine traffic direct to the blog.

“Our hope was to simply offer timely relevant information and improve our value as a consumer resource," according to Randall. "Any boost in visitor traffic is simply a bonus."

RoofHelper is an independent roofing guide and is not owned or operated by any roofing manufacturer or industry entity.

Winslow Geo Anchor “Bridges” Stream as Alternative to Concrete Piers New Application Enables Development of Prime Hillside Lots and Provides 50% Cost Savings

Pacific Housing Systems' Winslow Geo Anchor was used for the foundation of a 70-foot bridge (H20-44 loading) project in Walnut Creek, CA (about 25 miles east of SF) was used for the foundation of a 70-foot bridge (H20-44 loading). Pacific Housing Systems, Inc. is a leading provider of next generation foundation, floor and core solutions for residential homebuilders developing projects where marginal soil is prevalent. Its solutions enable developers to increase the speed, quality and quantity of new home deliveries and maximize their market share of new housing starts.

Pleasant Hill, CA (PRWEB) March 23, 2022 -- Pacific Housing Systems today announced the completion of its portion of a project in Walnut Creek, CA (about 25 miles east of SF), where its Winslow Geo Anchor was used for the foundation of a 70-foot bridge (H20-44 loading).

The span is now being built, and will cross a good size stream, enabling the development of two prime hillside lots that were previously restricted due to the simple inability of transporting materials from one side to the other. 14 anchors were used in the foundation - seven on each side - instead of 20 piers initially architected. The structure will easily meet the 37-ton load (enough to support a county fire engine) requirement, as "each" anchor has been tested at 50 tons capability.

Rick Kolby, principal of the group developing the project, Tice Valley Partners, said, “In addition to the nearly 50% we saved in materials and labor, the Winslow Geo Anchor had no impact on the stream itself. It was easily installed, is environmentally friendly and extremely structurally sound -- factors made the code and review process easy. In essence, we were able to provide a much better look and feel to the entire area, and that will be a huge benefit as the years go by and future households enjoy the residences.”

Scaffold Manufacturer is at the Forefront of Industry Advertising Methods

Universal Manufacturing Corp. of Pennsylvania introduces new marketing and advertising campaigns that leverages the power of the internet.

(PRWEB) March 22, 2022 -- The scope of their campaign is three fold: intent on attracting end users of scaffold and scaffolding related products to the Universal Scaffold website, while increasing brand name and recognition among distributor based clients. The first element of the campaign is geared towards advertising in trade publications and industry magazines. This offers the ability to market towards both distributors and end users by identifying key publication for each segment. Displaying in construction related trade shows entails the second phase of the marketing effort. Trade shows offer a unique venue to allow for direct contact with end users while also maintaining a presence to distributors. The third phase is geared to introduce the new “Overstocked Warehouse” section of the Universal Scaffold website. This new section will be opened for business on April 15th 2005.

Universal Scaffold’s website is geared to attract scaffolding users in all segments of the scaffold industry by providing information on frame scaffold, system scaffold, tube & clamp scaffold and steel plank.

Kinetic Concepts, Inc. Opens Doors On R&D; Lab / Call Center in San Antonio, Texas

New building for KCI is an 80,000 SF new building and finish-out, featuring Research Lab and call center space, offices and a large gallery where KCI's 90+ patents are showcased. This building represents the 44th successful commercial building project for Developer CMC - Commercial Realty Group and General Contractor Bob Moore Construction.

Arlington, TX (PRWEB) March 22, 2022 -- Kinetic Concepts, Inc. (KCI) manufactures more than 40 products that improve advanced wound care by accelerating the healing process or preventing complications. With more than 4,000 employees worldwide, KCI's revenues for their two top product lines were $764 million in 2003, a 32% increase from 2002. KCI, which became a publicly traded company in 2004, is growing fast and expanding their need for facilities of all types.

By 2004 KCI needed new space for offices and research and call center facilities. They turned to CMC – Commercial Realty Group and Bob Moore Construction to create a new 80,000 building in San Antonio's University Park. Hardy McCullah/MLM Architects designed the building; Rehler, Vaughn & Koone designed the interior.

"We have great relations with KCI and this is our second building for them,” said Subash Gaitonde, Partner / Principal of CMC. “KCI needed the building shell and finish-out completed in just seven months. Even though we lost 30 days to rain, Bob Moore brought it in on time and in budget."

The building features a gallery that showcases some of KCI’s products and the 90+ patents the company has received. A large R&D; Lab provides facilities for developing innovations for KCI’s Vacuum Assisted Closure® Therapy System, specialty hospital beds and therapeutic surfaces. The building also features 35,000 SF of call center space to support the company’s patient financial services, and multiple private offices. The overall design focuses on open spaces, with high ceilings and indirect lighting, to provide a comfortable environment for employees and guests.

“We knew in advance the schedule would present a challenge,” said Ed McGuire, Vice President of Construction for Bob Moore Construction. “Because of this we hand-picked the subcontractors and that paid off, especially with all the bad weather we experienced. They certainly rose to the challenge. Our superintendent, Quinton Grudzinski, was a big part of the success as well. The number of overtime hours he put in was phenomenal. Chuck Williams with KCI really knew what he wanted, and was able to communicate that very effectively to the entire team.”

The KCI building is the latest in a long list of successful commercial buildings constructed for CMC – Commercial Realty Group by Bob Moore Construction.

“We have used Bob Moore Construction exclusively since we founded our company in 1990,” added Jesse Pruitt, Partner / Principal of CMC. “We stay with the relationship because of the quality service they provide.”

Subash Gaitonde agreed. “Jesse and I worked with Bob Moore Construction before CMC was formed, in the mid-1980s,” he said. “We hired Bob Moore Construction for a single project, and they did a great job. We used them again, and again. When we formed CMC in 1990 we stayed with Bob Moore and have ever since. Today, 20 years later, we view Bob Moore Construction as an extension of our own team when we present to clients.”

The relationship has generated 44 successful commercial building projects across the United States. San Antonio’s University Park Business Park alone includes five separate buildings owned by CMC and built by Bob Moore Construction.

“We’ve worked with Subash and Jesse for 22 years,” said Phillip Bell, President of Bob Moore Construction, “and we’ve completed more separate projects for them than for any other client. We’ve built for them from San Antonio to New York, from small office buildings to major distribution centers. Regardless the project, we’ve always enjoyed our dealings. Our relationship with Subash and Jesse is certainly one that we cherish, and we look forward to constructing many more buildings with CMC in the years to come.”

New Gas Sensor for Yacht Watch Enhances Vessel Safety

Compulogic has announced the addition of a new LPG gas sensor with SMS alert message capability to the Yacht Watch product range.

(PRWEB) March 21, 2022 -- The Yacht Watch gas sensor will detect the presence of LPG, propane, butane, methane and hydrogen gas and send an SMS warning message via the Yacht Watch system alerting owners and harbour staff of a potentially dangerous gas leak.

The sensor is designed to send an alarm when a gas concentration equal to 10 percent of the lower explosive limit is detected.

Yacht Watch is a system that allows boat owners to receive alarms and other information from an unattended yacht or boat. Emergency conditions, for example flooding, fire, power failure or intruder entry are immediately notified to the owner's mobile telephone and up to three other mobile numbers. Additionally, the user can make a call to a boat and receive information from NMEA instrument systems enabling up to the minute weather, tide depth, position and other data to be remotely monitored. All information is presented in a clear and easy to read format on the Mobile's display.

The Yacht Watch system requires no subscription and can use any standard pay-as-you-go SIM card.

The Yacht Watch system is designed and built in the UK and backed by full technical support, a one year warranty and supplied with detailed user documentation.

'Stop Pouring Petrol on Flaming House Prices' - Urges Housing Expert

“Immediate Action – not words –is needed to deliver development land on which to build desperately needed new homes”, claimed Professor Michael Benfield, speaking to a conference of Housing Association, Local Government, Architect, and other industry professionals organised by the Welsh Timber Forum in Brecon.

(PRWEB) March 20, 2022 -- ”Further wrangling over policies, stakeholder interests, and politics are all ‘fiddling while Rome burns’”, he claimed. Likening today’s mounting housing crisis to Britain’s immediate post-war housing ‘disaster’, he urged his audience to ‘learn from history’ and be prepared to adopt some of the measures borne of desperation that were taken then. “In doing so we should immediately relax ALL planning controls and grant permits on ‘presumed development’ basis, with Local Authorities invoking their compulsory purchase powers to prevent withholding land”, he argued.

Demonstrating how engineered timber structures can be adapted to deliver houses at below the £60,000 targeted by Deputy Prime Minister, John Prescott, he evidenced the ‘House Race’ homes designed and built by his firm 12 months ago to prove this. “Of course this still means that Local Authorities will have to get their act in gear to provide the necessary infrastructure,” he stated, “but if we are to tackle the worsening situation we can’t afford the usual prevarications that cause a project devised today taking 3 to 5 years before it is built.”

Invoking Winston Churchill’s speech to the House of Commons in 1909, Professor Benfield claimed, “There is no shortage of funds to get any of this done. The money and the way to extract it already exist within the system, it just needs the will and the foresight to get it out.”

With UK House Builders recognised as among the most efficient and productive in Europe, “Creating the certainty of a continuous, ongoing supply of development land, able to receive uninterrupted factory built houses, will encourage investment in Off-Site, Modern Methods of Construction and greater use of sustainable timber to reduce Greenhouse gases,” he argued. In his view, this will also assist local economies by providing training for unskilled people, as well as opening the way to re-introduce ‘proper apprenticeships’, and the possibility of allowing youngsters to transfer from school at age 14, take up these apprenticeships, and recover the trade skills needed for the future that are rapidly being lost at this time. “But to do this,” he pointed out, “means recognising that ‘apprentice masters’ have to be rewarded for the effort and time taken to transfer their skills, as well as the delays this causes in production.”

Winston Churchill, House of Commons, 9 May 1909:
“Roads are made, streets are made, services are improved, electric light turns night into day, water is brought from reservoirs a hundred miles off in the mountains – and all the while the landlord sits still…To not one of those improvements does the land monopolist contribute…He renders no service to the community, he contributes nothing to the general welfare, he contributes nothing to the process from which his own enrichment is derived”

Other speakers included Cindy Harris from CAT (Centre for Alternative Technology) and Ivor Davies from the Centre of Timber Engineering at Napier University.

Druml Group Launches Online Invoice Collection Application for Construction Industry

Druml Group, Inc., a leading provider of business, financial, and risk management services to the construction industry, announces the launch of its new online E-Collection system. E-Collection is a method of accounts receivable collection that integrates both the Internet and discount incentives into the collection process to speed up the movement of money.

Foster City (PRWEB) March 19, 2022 -- Druml Group, Inc., a leading provider of business, financial, and risk management services to the construction industry, announces the launch of its new online E-Collection system. E-Collection is a method of accounts receivable collection that integrates both the Internet and discount incentives into the collection process to speed up the movement of money.

The E-Collection system is perfect for those willing to provide prompt-payment discount incentives to their customers to encourage speedy payment. It uses the power of the Internet to provide an easy, non-threatening way to offer instantaneous prompt-pay discount incentives. For contractors and suppliers trying to collect outstanding invoices, the system encourages early payment and for those who have invoices to pay, the system rewards early payment.

"The construction industry leads all other industries in the late-pay category with an average turnaround time for payment of goods and services of 69 days,” noted David Druml, President of Druml Group. “As a result, money is typically in short supply and can be a serious concern for those within industry. Construction-related companies must succeed in collecting money in order to avoid the pitfall of working capital shortages, and the E-Collection system is the perfect solution."

E-Collection utilizes a three step process. After signing in, users:

1) Identify a customer from whom they would like to collect payment
2) Identify invoices they wish to have collected
3) Specify the discount incentive they wish to offer and the time limit for payment

After the user completes steps 1, 2 and 3 the system sends an instantaneous fax and e-mail alerting the user’s customer of the discount offer. Then, Druml Group applies its expertise to encourage the customer to take advantage of the offer. Finally, Druml Group processes an electronic payment, which is express mailed to the user for next day delivery.

As part of its launch, Druml Group will be providing the E-Collection service free* for 1 month. For more information, please visit www.drumlgroup.com/collect_services.asp.

About Druml Group:
Founded in 1993, Druml Group is a West Coast-based consulting firm that specializes in providing business, financial, risk management, insurance, and bonding services to the construction industry.

Safety.BLR.com Helps Employers with this Challenge: How to Deliver Required OSHA Training to a Growing Population of Hispanic Workers

Safety.BLR.com has just created a Spanish Resources Center to help employers keep up with the challenge of keeping a rapidly growing multilingual workforce in compliance with OSHA’s safety and health requirements.

Old Saybrook, CT (PRWEB) March 17, 2022 -- Experts at OSHA recognize the problem, but busy employers are the ones trying to cope with it. Immigrants make up an estimated 14 percent of the U.S. workforce, and nearly half of them are considered to have limited proficiency in English. That translates into a big challenge for employers: how to keep a multilingual workforce in compliance with OSHA’s stringent safety and health requirements.

Fortunately for employers, Safety.BLR.com, the website for safety professionals that makes training and compliance easier, has just created a Spanish Resources Center at http://safety.blr.com/spanish.cfm. The Center includes Spanish training handouts and quizzes on 54 OSHA topics. It also features news, white papers, forms, guidance documents, regulatory activity, and agency directives and interpretations to help manage occupational safety and health for the Spanish-speaking workforce.

Steve Quilliam, editor at Safety.BLR.com, commented on the site’s new Resources Center: “OSHA requires companies to make sure their employees understand safety training and follow OSHA requirements. That obligation doesn’t change if their employees have a limited understanding of English. So with its prewritten training materials and handouts, our new Spanish Resources Center can be a helpful solution to this challenge.”

The 54 training topics in the Resources Center include Spanish handouts and quizzes on confined spaces, defensive driving, electrical safety, and eye protection.

Sample safety meeting for Hispanic workers:
To help employers get their training started, BLR has made available a sample hazard communication training meeting in English and Spanish, similar to those available at Safety.BLR.com. To download this free sample, go to www.blr.com/81001600/PRS3

John Czarnecki Earns Certified Kitchen And Bath Remodeler Title, Class of 2004

The NARI CKBR program is designed to raise the bar in the remodeling industry and specifically in the complex realm of kitchen and bath design and remodeling.

Newtown Square, PA (PRWEB) March 17, 2022 -- John Czarnecki of Benoit & Czarnecki Design/Construction, LLC earns the designation of Certified Kitchen and Bath Remodeler (CKBR). Benoit & Czarnecki, LLC is a member of the DelChester Chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI). John received the CKBR title after successfully completing the intensive NARI study program that ended with a full day examination. The NARI CKBR program is designed to raise the bar in the remodeling industry and specifically in the complex realm of kitchen and bath design and remodeling.

“Generally speaking, remodelers have traditionally been given a bad wrap because of unqualified and unprofessional people. Our hopes are for a national standardized training and examination process to set a benchmark. The CKBR course is an excellent way to draw that line between quality and inferior work,” said Jim Benoit, CR Construction Manager. “ I am very proud of John’s accomplishment and dedication to excellence.”

The NARI CKBR program lasts for 15 weeks, consisting of a intensive study program covering all aspects of the Kitchen and Bath design, renovation, and construction.

Bob Garrity and Zach McWilliams Obtain Certified Lead Carpenter Designation

The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) offers a number of industry specific certification programs. The programs are designed to form a nationally recognized standard measure of quality and professionalism in the remodeling industry. The NARI certification programs are offered to those interested in becoming a Certified Remodeler (CR), a Certified Lead Carpenter (CLC), and/or a Certified Kitchen and Bath Remodeler (CKBR). The programs consist of a study group that meets weekly for 12 to 14 weeks and ends with the 6 to 8 hour certification exam

Newtown Square, PA (PRWEB) March 17, 2022 -- Bob Garrity and Zach McWilliams of Benoit & Czarnecki Design/Construction, LLC earn the title of Certified Lead Carpenter (CLC). Benoit & Czarnecki, LLC is a member of the DelChester Chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI). Bob and Zach received the CLC classification after successfully completing the intensive NARI study program that ended with a full day examination. The NARI CLC program is designed to raise the bar in the remodeling industry and more specifically in the area of job management and production.

“All too often any guy with a pick-up truck and some tools claims to be a general contractor, lead carpenter, or professional remodeler. He may even know how to frame a house, hang drywall, and install cabinets, but the real work of any remodeling project is in the management. The Lead Carpenter must not only know how to build, but must know all about the various trades involved, know who to get, when to get them, and how to ensure the work is done correctly and in a timely fashion. The Lead must order all materials, write up contracts, price work, and be the central cog of the entire job,” said Jim Benoit, CR Construction Manager. “ I am pleased with Bob and Zach for their completion of the course and their dedication to the company, their craftsmanship, and the industry as a whole.”

The NARI CLC program lasts for 15 weeks, consisting of an intensive study program covering all aspects of the project management and construction. The participants are tested on their knowledge of the business of remodeling, building codes and plans, all associated trades (plumbing, electrical, HVAC, framing, etc), all areas of proper design/layout, project management, and communication and people skills. The grueling course work ends with a six-hour cumulative final examination.

“We are happy Bob and Zach were not only willing to undergo the difficult certification, but that they also scored the highest in their class, “ said John Czarnecki, CKBR Operations Manager. “They were able prove their knowledge of the industry as well as take away a great deal of information, which they are able to share. We hope this inspires some of our staff members to pursue certification and continue their education.”

In addition, to the CLC program, NARI has a Certified Remodeler (CR) program, Certified Remodeler Specialist (CRS) program, Certified Remodeler Associate (CRA) program, Certified Kitchen and Bath Remodeler (CKBR) program, and Certified Remodeling Carpenter (CRC) program.

Who are you?

A new patent pending system helps homeowners and businesses find contractors while maintaining their privacy.

Westland, MI (PRWEB) March 17, 2022 -- In the information age, privacy is something to value and protect. Giving out personal information in one's daily life is often unavoidable. This free-floating information can result in spam emails, unsolicited phone calls, and junk mail. Innovations such as the "do not call list" can help prevent unrequested contact, but what about when you willingly give out your personal information on the internet when you are in need of a product or service?

When seeking the services of a contractor or other home improvement professional, it is important to get estimates from several different companies. This can mean your name, phone number, and maybe even your address is willingly given to 3 or more companies who may now send you junk mail or share your personal information for years to come.

A new system, launched on February 19, 2005, allows people in search of a contractor or other service provider to get competing offers and maintain their privacy if they choose. The individual seeking services can communicate with service providers using message board technology, designed by HomePyramid.com, without releasing any personally identifiable information such as name, phone number, or email address. By using HomePyramid.com's patent pending system, one can get several offers from local companies for any type of project and rest assured that he or she will not receive unwanted solicitations as a by-product of using the service. Please visit http://www.homepyramid.com to learn more.

Ten tips to help safeguard your privacy on the internet:

1. Read the privacy policy of all websites you visit. Pay special attention to the parts that discuss how the company intends to use the information you provide. Do not use a website that does not have a privacy policy.

2. Find out if the website has partners or affiliates and learn about their privacy policies as well. Find out if the website shares information with the partners and if you can opt-out of receiving emails with special offers or marketing messages from third parties.

3. If it seems like a company is asking for too much information, they probably are. Don't give out your bank information, social security number, etc. If you are supplying credit card numbers, read the privacy policy to learn how the information is used and make sure the website uses encryption.

4. Be careful what you download. Some applications come with "spyware" that is meant to spy on your internet habits and report information back to whomever you downloaded from. Find a program that can detect and remove spyware from your computer.

5. Disable cookies in your web browser and only enable them for sites that require them or sites that you know you can trust. Cookies are little pieces of information stored on your computer by the websites you visit. Some are useful and necessary to make a website work correctly, others attempt to collect information about you and track your surfing habits.

6. When creating a password, use a combination of numbers and letters, preferably words that you cannot find in the dictionary. Change your password occasionally and/or if you think someone may have discovered it.

7. Get a secondary email account that you can use when signing up for online services or the like. This way if you start receiving spam, your primary address will not get bombarded.

8. When using a public computer, always close the browser before leaving. You may even want to empty the cache, found in the tools folder in your browser.

9. If you are going to be sending sensitive information over the internet such as credit card information, check that the page is secure. Look for "https://" in your browser instead of just "http://".

10. Realize that there are always risks on the internet. There is no such thing as perfect security online, but by taking the proper precautions you can help protect your privacy and avoid identity theft.

New Organization Seeks to be Voice for Millions of Florida Residents.

A new state wide organization seeks to band associations together to represent millions of Florida consumers.

Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 16, 2022 -- A new state-wide organization that will band condominium and homeowner associations together to address issues and provide substantive benefits was announced today. The Florida Community Association Coalition (FCAC) will be the first state wide organization that will band condominium and homeowner associations together in the State of Florida.

“The goal of the FCAC is to be a voice for millions of Floridians who have no representation in the state legislature as well as provide benefits that are not being offered by any other organization,” said Mark Bogen, its Executive Director.

The initial benefits offered by the FCAC protects consumers from identity theft; investigates criminal conduct at associations; provides free legal advice; discounts on insurance and cable T.V. and recommends contractors and vendors with a unique twist.

"Condominium and homeowner associations have been consistently ripped-off by unscrupulous contractors and vendors. Our program will make sure companies are licensed, insured or bonded. We also guarantee that if a member uses any recommended vendor or contractor and is scammed, our organization will provide free legal representation to that member. No other organization offers these guarantees." said Bogen. While some of the FCAC benefits are free to its members other benefits are offered at a discount.

Support for the FCAC is evidenced by its impressive Honorary Advisory Committee. Such members include former Florida Attorney General Bob Butterworth; Palm Beach County State Attorney Barry Krischer; Dade County State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle and the presidents of many local or county organizations from throughout the State of Florida. The FCAC will also seek to develop a grass roots organization at condominium and homeowner associations throughout the state.

The FCAC, which is based in Boca Raton, Florida, is free to join by going to its web site at www.floridacoalition.com

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) March 15, 2022 -- The Scagliola Stone Collection By Thierry Francois At Stone Age Designs Is A Marble Based Formula That Is Being Selected Over Hand-Carved Stones Like Limestone And Travertine All Across The Country For Fireplace Mantels, Stone Fireplace Mantels, Kitchen Hoods And Stone Kitchen Hoods For The Beauty And Aesthetics Of Authentic Stone.

The Scagliola Stone Collection by Thierry Francois at Stone Age Designs is a marble based formula that is being selected over hand-carved stones like Limestone and Travertine all across the country for Fireplace Mantels, Stone Fireplace Mantels, Kitchen Hoods, and Stone Kitchen Hoods for the beauty and aesthetics of authentic stone. Stone Age Designs’ Scagliola Stone is a secret marble based formula that is being selected over hand-carved stone for mantels, stone fireplaces, kitchen hoods, and kitchen stove hoods as designers discover the rare beauty of Scagliola.

Stone Age Designs’ own Scagliola Stone has the beauty, and the appearance of Limestone and Travertine, and the look and feel of authentic stone. The - exclusive - secret marble based Scagliola formula is the genius of Thierry Francois. Thierry re-discovered and enhanced his hand-made, secret formula for Scagliola or “Scaglia” that was originally created by the Italian Monks of the 17th Century who used Scagliola in their own creations that remain awe inspiring today though the formula was lost until re-discovered by Stone Age Designs.

Today, Scagliola is created using Stone Age Designs’ secret formula that blends crushed Marble, Limestone, and Travertine into cast stone and cultured stone creations that can been seen at the new Stone Age Designs Showcase at http://www.stoneagedesigns.com/showcase/index.html where you may see these new – beautiful – creations available exclusively at Stone Age Designs.

Stone Age Designs re-discovered Scagliola and the Scagliola Stone Collection by Thierry Francois have been discovered worldwide, and Francois’ design genius is now being requested for new custom creations. So go beyond the quarry and discover Stone Age Designs’ Scagliola:
Fireplace Mantels … http://www.stoneagedesigns.com/mantels
Kitchen Hoods … http://www.stoneagedesigns.com/kitchen
Accents … http://www.stoneagedesigns.com/accents
Arches, Columns, Complete Wall Creations, Crown Moldings, Pedestals, Spiral Staircases, Statues, Surrounds, Waterfalls, and Lion Heads are just some of the Accents created by Stone Age Designs that are being selected by Architects -- Commercial and Residential – Custom Homebuilders as well as Homeowners who want to beautify their homes with new Fireplace Designs, or with a new design for a Kitchen Stone Stove Hood.

Stone Age Designs’ Scagliola is breathtaking, and it is a one of a kind blend of stone or cast stone that is easy to use, easy to install, and Architects, Custom Home Builders, Designers, and Homeowners have found that Custom Creations and Custom Designs are just a Cad Drawing away.

The design possibilities for your home are endless, and Homeowners across the country have found that what they can see in their own mind – a new Kitchen Hood – Francois’ genius of creation makes it easy to see own design in their own home.

And Stone Age Designs’ Scagliola is not nearly as costly as Limestone or Travertine while it is just as beautiful as hand carved quarry stone. Custom Scagliola Stone by Stone Age Designs eliminates the need for uneven hand-carved stone; quarry stones are limited in their colors, and the colors are inconsistent. Quarry stones are labor intensive, more expensive to ship and carve which is the only reason they are more expensive, and quarry stones delay contractors because deliveries are late and stones are often broken or cracked when delivered, and that means your piece is glued back together. True – Glue.

Our world elegance in your home today with the elegance of authentic custom stone is now a reality when you select the secret formula from Stone Age Designs’ Scagliola for your new Fireplace Mantel, Kitchen Hood, or your new Cast Stone Arches, Columns, Wall Creations, Crown Moldings, Pedestals, Spiral Staircases, Statues, Surrounds, Waterfalls, and Lion Heads – all from http://www.stoneagedesigns.com/ or call contact Stone Age Designs today in Atlanta at 404.350.3333, in Winter Park, Florida at 407.628.5577, or in Charlotte at 704.377.4577 to speak to the genius of the creations at Stone Age Designs.

Mimosa International Launches Marmorino Metallico

The tradition of Italian artisans is alive and well in interior finishes company Mimosa International. Known for its lustrous textures, sumptuous colors, and enchanting, Italian craftsmanship, Mimosa is launching its premium wall finish - Marmorino Metallico.

(PRWEB) March 15, 2022 -- The tradition of Italian artisans is alive and well in interior finishes company Mimosa International. Known for its lustrous textures, sumptuous colors, and enchanting, Italian craftsmanship, Mimosa is launching its premium wall finish - Marmorino Metallico - at an invitation only soirée on March 17, 2022 at 1045 Mission Street in San Francisco, California from 4:00 –7:00 PM.

Marmorino Metallico is applied using traditional Italian plaster techniques that were created especially for the grand palazzos and breathtaking villas of old Italy. The finish is composed of a simple plaster prepared with Grassello, a lime paste made with stone found in the Ticino River Valley just outside of Venice. The stone is treated in a high-pressure oven and is kept underwater for one year to obtain the needed consistency of the paste. The paste is then mixed with marble dust from the Tuscan region of Carrara — famous for being the favorite working playground of Michelangelo. Besides being a sculpture’s paradise, Carrara is also famous for having the purest and the whitest marble in the world. Thus, Mimosa’s integration of choice materials and Italian craftsmanship transforms old world charm into new world design.

Mimosa International specializes in the production and application of a wide range of authentic Italian decorative finishes for commercial and residential interiors, exteriors and furnishings.

What sets Mimosa International apart is its uncompromising commitment to quality, authenticity and craftsmanship. Mimosa is privileged to have worked with many of the world’s most respected architects and interior designers on corporate, cultural, commercial, and residential projects. Currently, Mimosa’s finishes grace the walls of the Hyatt Regency Hotel (San Francisco), Giorgio Armani’s Black Label flagship stores (Costa Mesa, New York, Chicago, Düsseldorf, and Naples), and boutiques all over the world for Bvlgari, Van Cleef & Arpels, Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Ferré and Pucci.

Mimosa International's corporate headquarters are located in Varese, Italy, with North American headquarters in New York City and local sales offices in San Francisco, Chicago and London.

Concrete Washout Systems’ Aggressive Expansion Continues Into Central California

California Waste Recovery Will Be Servicing Builders and Contractors in Fast Growing California Counties; San Joaquin and Stanislaus

Elk Grove, CA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 15, 2022 -- Concrete Washout Systems, Inc., announced today that it has signed a licensing agreement with California Waste Recovery Systems (Calwaste) who will distribute and service Concrete Washout Systems (CWS) in San Joaquin and Stanislaus Counties of California.

Calwaste, an established solid waste hauling company led by Dave Vaccarezza, an industry veteran in the waste hauling industry, will begin servicing the San Joaquin and Stanislaus Counties in addition to their current operations. Calwaste was using a similar product to Concrete Washout Systems patent pending invention as they saw the demand and need developing, but realized the value added proposition of a strong partnership with the leading authority in the concrete washout and recycling marketplace.

“California Waste Recovery Systems welcomes the partnership of Concrete Washout Systems to our family of businesses. Together we are poised and ready to meet the challenges of the booming construction Industry in the Central Valley with this new and innovative product,” stated Dave Vaccarezza, Owner of California Waste Recovery Systems.

“We are very excited to have and industry veteran with Dave’s accomplishments and experience come aboard, realizing the value and opportunity in our business model,” stated Kevin Mickelson, Vice President of Concrete Washout Systems, Inc. “Calwaste has a proven and distinguished track record within the waste hauling industry and with its customer base we feel they are a great addition and asset to our business,” added Mr. Mickelson.

CWS is currently seeking licensed partners in numerous markets across the nation. Each partner will own and operate a Concrete Washout Systems business in their designated region, where they will be responsible for all aspects of the business.

The patent pending CWS is a portable, self-contained and watertight bin that controls, captures and contains concrete washout material and wastewater. It allows trade personnel to easily washout concrete trucks, pumps and equipment on site and facilitates easy off site recycling of the same concrete materials and wastewater, while protecting the storm drain system from potential illegal discharges. The off site recycling component creates an even more environmentally sound application as concrete material is diverted away from landfills and recycled. This system replaces other outdated washout BMP’s, which are costly, unsightly and damaging to the environment since their containment value diminishes, due to inherently faulty material, over use and lack of maintenance.

About Concrete Washout Systems, Inc.
Concrete Washout Systems is a risk management specialist and industry pioneer in concrete washout and wastewater removal, treatment and recycling. The patent-pending Concrete Washout Systems provides a cost effective, environmentally friendly and compliance alternative for homebuilders, contractors, ready mix and pump operators and environmental engineering firms.

Cash Flow Notes

Do you or your clients need quick cash? Do you or they own notes or structured settlements? Learn how to turn them all into quick cash. By Russ Dalbey, CEO and founder of Winning in the Cash Flow Business.

(PRWEB) March 14, 2022 -- There is a wide variety of privately held (and usually privately originated) debt and other cash flow instruments that are actively bought and sold. Operating somewhat like secondary markets in the banking and institutional lending arenas, the private cash flow market provides cash flow asset holders several huge advantages not often obtainable through traditional funding pipelines - including flexibility, availability, and softer underwriting requirements.

For professional advisors representing holders of these cash flow instruments, awareness of these advantages, and a basic grasp of the possibilities, provides the opportunity to fulfill the most important service they have to offer their clients - solutions.

Seller-financed transactions have existed for decades - and potential buyers for these seller-originated cash flow debt instruments have existed right alongside. Essentially taking root in the private real estate note arena some 60 years ago, the private cash flow industry has gradually grown to encompass a wide spectrum of diversified debt instruments throughout the past few decades - as more and more participants continue to explore, and underwrite, potentially profitable financial niches.

Alternative Cash Flows
Driven by small, independent cash flow professionals at the local level, the brokerage side of the industry has fueled the growth of investors purchasing alternative cash flows. As networking in the secondary market has grown and become somewhat more structured, a developing investor’s interest in purchasing non-debt related forms of cash flow instruments has been kindled as well. We have seen such esoteric cash flow instruments as annuity agreements, structured settlements, viaticals, lottery awards and similar prize entitlements, pension benefits, royalty agreements, deferred casino winnings, deferred sports contracts, and more, all joining the parade of purchasable cash flows.

Approximately 60 identifiable debt and cash flow instruments - including the non-debt-related instruments above and others such as commercial receivables, business notes, medical receivables, automobile, marine and aviation paper, equipment leasing contracts, timeshares, government contract payments, retail installment contracts, manufactured housing paper, and the granddaddy of them all, real estate notes - are all actively bought and sold in private secondary markets.

Liquidity
The ability to tap into the liquidity that these cash flow instruments represent creates a buffet of possible options for sellers, and their advisors, to access funds quickly. In addition, being aware of the various options available in the private secondary cash flow markets can assist in both forward planning and mitigating situations where liquidity may not be a primary issue, such as avoiding excessive taxation and other forms of transactional friction, estate planning, family law issues, partnership dissolutions, portfolio building, and even asset protection under the right circumstances.

I have demonstrated some of these techniques in previous issues, as they relate to private real estate paper. The same concepts often apply across the whole spectrum of cash flow instruments and can frequently make a huge difference in solving a problem for your clients, whether they are doctors, debtors, investors, business owners, business buyers, developers, contractors, retirees, beneficiaries, devisees, or divorcees! And, as our secondary markets have grown and adapted, we have begun to see some crossover with traditional lending markets. With growing frequency, bank and mortgage company paper assets (including both performing and nonperforming portfolios) are being marketed through our services. And, we are seeing increasing numbers of loan origination packages coming through the door, particularly for the larger and more difficult to close lending transactions, including commercial, development, and residential related hard money and construction funding deals.

The crossover of these alternative cash flows trading into the private cash flow industry has allowed professional cash flow brokers to expand their product lines and greatly diversify the scope of solutions they may be able to bring to you and your clients' situations - either as direct investors or as conduits to other viable funding sources who specialize in funding the type of transaction involved.

As a cash flow professional, I have the basic due diligence information gathering and evaluation skills to help create and present packages to a wide variety of cash flow buyers and investors. And what I can't answer, I can usually find out through my networking resources. Don't hesitate to contact me to explore the possible range of solutions we might be able to come up with together, when the situation arises for one of your clients. And please feel free to visit our website if you would like to find out more about the benefits I might be able to offer your clients. http://www.dlppages.com/RealEstateNotes.htm

Sustainable Buildings Industry Council and Ecobuild America Announce Strategic Alliance Key Industry Council Becomes Ecobuild Marquee Sponsor

Today Ecobuild America and the Sustainable Buildings Industry Council (SBIC) announced a strategic alliance, which positions SBIC as the Marquee Sponsor of the 2005 Ecobuild America and Ecobuild Federal conferences and exhibitions. SBIC’s Ecobuild America conference is a comprehensive event for the architectural, engineering, and construction industries for sustainable design, infrastructure and “green” building strategies.

(PRWEB) March 14, 2022 -- Today Ecobuild America and the Sustainable Buildings Industry Council (SBIC) announced a strategic alliance, which positions SBIC as the Marquee Sponsor of the 2005 Ecobuild America and Ecobuild Federal conferences and exhibitions.

SBIC’s Ecobuild America conference is a comprehensive event for the architectural, engineering, and construction industries for sustainable design, infrastructure and “green” building strategies.

SBIC’s Ecobuild America conference premiers June 20–23, 2005, at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort and Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. To support the needs of an expanding green and sustainable building market, the conference combines educational sessions, tutorials, and cutting-edge information from national vendors by covering the best building techniques and the latest technology. Attendees will find up-to-date solutions for their current projects: sustainable building materials, energy-efficient products and services, solar solutions, options for livable communities, water conservation strategies, and a particular emphasis on sustainable growth.

In announcing the relationship, George Borkovich, Principal of RCG, noted: “SBIC’s mission of ‘advancing a “whole building” approach to design™’ is clearly aligned with our goals of reaching out to every member of the building team. Both the Ecobuild America and Ecobuild Federal conferences will provide SBIC with an expanded platform to further its mission. Together, we'll have a significant opportunity to produce a larger event, attract more participants and support the emerging market for sustainable products and services.”

Helen English, SBIC’s Executive Director, adds, “This is an exciting time for SBIC, as we celebrate our 25th anniversary of service to the building industry. With our continued focus on sustainability, always kept in a ‘whole building’ context, SBIC has worked diligently to help architects, engineers, federal and state agencies, and building owners and managers understand that integrated design is critical to achieving truly high-performance buildings. For example, it’s not enough to design a sustainable building; HVAC, fire protection, security, aesthetics, acoustics, and much more must carefully be considered. The building and its community, site, and orientation must be interdependent. The resulting buildings will be more efficient, cost-effective, comfortable, and healthy.

“SBIC is an education and advocacy organization. We do not dictate requirements. Rather, we educate the industry on the value of an integrated approach to design. We are eager to nurture the entire building team and help them reach the high-performance building goals they have set.”

SBIC has always carefully tailored its educational products to specific audiences across a wide spectrum: home builders, architects, K–12 school decision makers, engineers, energy consultants, or federal program managers.

About Sustainable Buildings Industry Counci (SBIC)
SBIC teaches value, and advocates a balanced, holistic approach to designing new buildings. Many terms are used to describe improved buildings, such as "green," "sustainable," "high performance," and "environmentally responsive." SBIC is mindful these ideas must be kept in context with other equally important design objectives, such as aesthetics, accessibility, cost effectiveness, flexibility, high productivity, and security. SBIC members believe all sustainable buildings must be low-energy, climate-responsive, use minimal fossil fuels and cleaner, renewable energy. Working in close partnership with federal agencies, policy makers, and national laboratories, the council has led the way in defining a coherent "whole building" approach to new building design.

Concrete Washout Systems, Inc. Expands its Presence Into Reno, Nevada

Strategic partner, American Concrete Washouts, Inc., will begin servicing builders and contractors in the greater Reno and South Lake Tahoe areas.

Elk Grove, CA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 11, 2022 -- Concrete Washout Systems, Inc., announced today that it’s licensed partner, American Concrete Washouts, Inc. (ACW), will begin distributing and servicing the Concrete Washout Systems (CWS) in the Reno, Nevada and South Lake Tahoe markets.

"The demand we have been seeing up to this point has been phenomenal. Tougher enforcement by the regulatory community and overall awareness of more sensible practices has been the driving force," stated Mike Liston, President of American Concrete Washouts, Inc. "We continue to provide our current customer base top quality service and look forward to developing new relationships as we continue our expansion," added Mr. Liston.

"ACW continues to push forward at a rapid pace, keeping up with demand and expanding into new untapped markets. As we said before, we fully expect to see them in additional markets as they continue their aggressive expansion," stated Kevin Mickelson, Vice President of Concrete Washout Systems, Inc.

Licensed partners will own and operate a Concrete Washout Systems business in their designated region where they will be responsible for all aspects of the business. Currently Concrete Washout Systems has licensed partners throughout most of California, Las Vegas and now Reno, Nevada, Phoenix, Arizona, Denver, Colorado and Southeast Florida.

The patent pending CWS is a portable, self-contained and watertight bin that controls, captures and contains concrete washout material and wastewater. It allows trade personnel to easily washout concrete trucks, pumps and equipment on site and facilitates easy off-site recycling of the same concrete materials and wastewater, while protecting the storm drain system from potential illegal discharges. The off-site recycling component creates an even more environmentally sound application. This risk management system replaces other outdated washout BMP's, which are costly, unsightly and damaging to the environment since their containment value diminishes, due to inherently faulty material, over use and lack of maintenance.

About Concrete Washout Systems, Inc.
Concrete Washout Systems is a risk management specialist and industry pioneer in concrete washout and wastewater removal, treatment and recycling. The patent-pending Concrete Washout Systems provides a cost effective, environmentally friendly and compliance alternative for homebuilders, contractors, ready mix and pump operators and environmental engineering firms.

American Clay Earth Plaster Debuts Instructional Video at NAHB 'Greenbuild' Conference and Expo This Weekend

American Clay Earth Plaster, the natural finish for interior walls and ceilings, is proud to debut the only U.S.-based clay plaster instructional video at the 2005 National Green Building Conference, March 13-15, 2005, in Atlanta, GA, Booth #215. The video is produced by American Clay who last year won the Outstanding New Green Product Award at this conference. The company's sales have grown 350% this past year and they now offer 30+ hues, various textures and finishes, and additional tools and products (such as a special sealer and trowels).

Albuquerque, NM (PRWEB) March 11, 2022 -- American Clay Earth Plaster, the natural finish for interior walls and ceilings, is proud to debut the only U.S.-based clay plaster instructional video at the 2005 National Green Building Conference, March 13-15, 2005, in Atlanta, GA, Booth #215. The video is produced by American Clay who last year won the Outstanding New Green Product Award at this conference produced by the National Association of Home Builders. Well-known for its elegant look and environmentally-conscious features – non-toxic, hypoallergenic, low inherent energy, and low waste – American Clay finishes are easy to use and are available in over 30 colors. The video offers both professionals and do-it-yourself home improvers a personal tour of the effortless artistry of American Clay.

Thirteen minutes in duration and available in both VHS and DVD formats, the video will be shown continuously at the American Clay booth. Highlighting earth plaster’s natural beauty as well as its simple application, the video includes several shots of completed installations interspersed with a step-by-step demonstration of plastering techniques. Outside preparation, mixing, first and second coat applications are clearly and concisely explained in individual chapters. Sections on spraying and final surfacing provide useful tips such as how to avoid cracks and quickly cover large areas. The video is available directly through American Clay (VHS/$10.00, DVD/$12.50).

As is shown, American Clay products are applied much like a conventional plaster finish, but with none of the intrinsic problems of gypsum or
cementitious plasters. There is no off-gassing or inherent waste on-site. Moreover, the plaster is non-flammable, gives additional masonry mass in rooms, resists mold growth, absorbs sound, breathes with temperature and
humidity, and is easily repairable.

American Clay – The Original Earth Plaster – presently comes in two formulations: the original Loma and the even smoother Porcelina – a formulation which provides a polished, more Venetian-like veneer. It is a unique combination of clays, aggregates and natural pigments that offers builders and consumers a natural and elegant option.

“Receiving the NAHB Outstanding Green Building Product Award for 2004, has helped American Clay Earth Plasters rise to national attention. As part of that process, we have had a fun and creative year: developing 20 new colors, adding many dealers and distributors, and producing a beautiful instructional video. Our sales grew 350% last year, and we have much on the planning table for this year. Our video is providing more people with the ability to apply our delicious plaster. We love the NAHB Green Build show, and find it has brought us great measurable results. The attendees are really focused on finding new and inventive products—as well as going out and using them in their projects,” says Marketing Director/Co-Founder Carol Baumgartel.


ABOUT AMERICAN CLAY ENTERPRISES
LOMA is the original formulation which has the characteristics of traditional plaster. The surface texture can vary by using different finishing techniques: a tile sponge helps achieve a ‘sanded’ finish (ala suede), a stainless steel swimming pool trowel offers a smooth – but somewhat textured – surface, and a coarse black sand added to the Loma can produce an almost ‘stone-like’ quality.

PORCELINA is the newer Venetian-like, super-smooth produce that gives a satin – almost texture-free – surface. Prized by Artisans for centuries, the smooth surface can be reminiscent of fine marble. Troweled over a basecoat of Loma, Porcelina is a layer of less than 1/32nd of an inch. It can be worked with several colors to produce the mottled, Venetian plaster of Mediterranean and Italian villas.

American Clay has also added these offerings this year:

• American Clay Primer – specially formulated to maintain the breathability of the surface, reducing the possibility of mold build-up;
• American Clay Sealers, both clear and gloss;
• American Clay Add-Mix – an addition to their Loma and Porcelina formulations that prepares the Earth Plaster for high-traffic areas or commercial applications; and
• Hida Trowels – a wide variety of Japanese Trowels that are specially designed for working with clay plaster.

American Clay Enterprises, Inc., is based in Albuquerque, NM, and its product is patent pending. The company offers workshops at its New Mexico locations, and the product is available through their office or through one of the growing number of retailers and distributors across the U.S. Their website, www.americanclay.com, offers information on ordering, technical specifications, product application and additional resources and links.

BeHomeWise Teams With Builders Association of the Twin Cities for Its Parade of Homes “EasyStreetSM”

Partnership with leading Prospect Management System Continues BATC's Legacy as an Innovator in Parade of Homes Strategies

VIENNA, VA (PRWEB) March 11, 2022 -- BeHomeWise, Inc. (BHW), the industry’s exceptional event management system for home builders, has teamed up with the Builders Association of the Twin Cities (BATC), one of the country's most innovative producers of home parades, to maximize the participation of their builder members in Parade of HomesSM events and provide these builders with detailed shopper information. The result of this partnership will extend the possibilities of builder business intelligence, and redefine the expectations of builder showcases.

Among builder associations, BATC is widely considered the "gold standard" in home parade management, and regularly produces the nation's largest and most successful showcase events throughout the year. Beginning April 30, 2005, BATC will host its Third Annual Parade of Homes EasyStreetSM event - a special showcase of association-maintained new homes, which includes townhomes, condominiums, lofts, villa homes, row homes, and coach homes. This year, BATC will use BeHomeWise’s unique event management program to register event participants and to track the event’s success. With the BHW program, shoppers no longer have the burden of registering at each location they visit. Furthermore, the Program gathers detailed shopper data, ranks and qualifies shoppers as hot prospects for each builder, tracks shoppers' purchasing behaviors, measures the success of the event’s marketing activities, and helps builders follow up on their hot leads after the event.

"We are proud of our legacy of producing the country's best home parades, and this association with BHW raises the bar of excellence even further," said Wendy Danks, Marketing Director for the BATC. "The next step in the evolution of high-quality home parades is the securing and examination of detailed prospect information, the likes of which only BeHomeWise can provide."

"Even for sophisticated builder associations like the BATC, home parades present as many challenges as opportunities - for everyone involved," said Robb Cohen, President and CEO of BHW. "The association wants to prove the value of participation to its builder-members; builders want detailed information about prospective buyers so they can fine-tune their marketing budgets; and buyers want to participate without having to carry bulky brochures or re-register themselves at every new sales center. The BHW Event Management Program creates a 'win-win-win' solution for all parties."

The BHW Event Management Program is easy for builder organizations to implement and manage. Prior to an event, home shoppers register themselves on their HBA web site. They then receive a thank-you e-mail and a "Welcome Kit", with a magnetic swipe card, a few days later in the mail. During the event, as shoppers visit homes or communities, they swipe their cards through magnetic readers at each builder location. (Organizations can also select to have an on-site registration option for shoppers.) Builders no longer have to worry about overlooking a shopper during a busy period of the event. Shoppers only register one time, no longer burdened with filling out forms at every stop they make.

After the event, BHW provides the organization and participating builders with event data such as:
* The number of shoppers
* Which builders and communities they visited
* Registrants' qualifications and demographic profiles
* What shoppers said they wanted to buy, where, when and at what price
* Which prospects are hot leads for which builders based on their preferences, timeframe to buy and contingencies

Participating BATC members will also have an opportunity to utilize, at no cost, BHW's lead management system for 90 days after the event. BHW has the industry’s leading business intelligence and Internet lead management system helping Builders to convert Internet leads to sales faster than any other solution in the market and to gather real time data on their shoppers, thereby minimizing the sales cycle.

Wal-Mart Stores May Be a Safety Concern in California

The Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers Local #3 in conjunction with other Alameda County Building Trades will gather in Oakland on Thursday, March 10, 2022 at 9:30 am to discuss the events of Frazier Masonry at the Wal-Mart project in Oakland, CA. Frazier Masonry has been cited by the city of Oakland for improper installation of various sections of the concrete block walls. Many sections of the walls had to be removed and re-installed to meet local and state building codes. This substandard construction is the result of Frazier Masonry attempting to increase their profit at the expense and safety of the community. It has come to our attention that Frazier Masonry has constructed and will construct numerous Wal-Mart stores throughout California. Wal-Mart currently has 30 stores scheduled to open in Northern California in the next 1 to 2 years. The Wal-Mart is located on Edgewater Drive, Oakland, CA on the west side of 880 at the Hegenberger exit.

Oakland, CA (PRWEB) March 10, 2022 -- Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers Local #3 are committed to continue job actions until the issues of building construction, and area wage and benefit standards are appropriately addressed by Frazier Masonry and Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart only requires “contractors and subcontractors to follow all laws … and do the right thing” (www.walmartfacts.com, January 24, 2022). Due to recent violations of building codes, it seems that Frazier is not following all laws and doing the right thing. It seems apparent that Wal-Mart supports the substandard work of this contractor by taking a non-responsibility approach; when asked for comment by KTVU on February 4, 2022 on the situation, a Wal-Mart spokesperson stated the “General Contractor has the right to hire any subcontractor they want.”

The construction of this site fails to address the issue of local community standards and the economic impact of allowing the use of contractors that try to subvert the law and pay substandard wages and benefits. Wal-Mart seems to support the substandard building construction and the degradation of standards by subcontractors to benefit their interests and not the interests of the community. Local 3 have members who live in the Oakland area who are California State Certified professional masons that are more qualified to do this work.

Jury Finds "Toxic Mold" Harmed Oregon Family, Builder's Arbitration Clause Not Binding

The case (Haynes vs. Adair Homes Inc.) is a first in the Northwest to award personal injury damages to a family exposed to toxic mold in a newly built home. "This verdict is significant because it holds construction companies responsible when they negligently build sick buildings,” said Kelly Vance, the family's attorney.

(PRWEB) March 9, 2022 -- A Clackamas County jury on Friday (March 4, 2022) held Adair Homes Inc. responsible for faulty construction practices that caused toxic mold to thrive inside Paul and Renee Haynes' new home in Sandy, Oregon. The jury also found Adair's negligence caused illness in Mrs. Haynes and the couple's two small children – Michael, 6, and Liam, 4. The family experienced severe respiratory, digestive and cognitive impairment. One half of a million dollars was awarded to the injured family.

The case is a first in the Northwest to award damages for personal injury to a family exposed to mold in a newly built home. "This verdict is significant because it holds construction companies responsible when they negligently build sick buildings,” said Kelly Vance, the family's attorney.

Adair Homes, Inc. which builds hundreds of residences each year in Oregon, Washington and Idaho, built the house on the Hayne's five acres in early 2002. Four months after moving in and becoming ill, the family discovered rampant mold growth inside the walls of their new home. Dry wall and insulation were installed while the frame was wet from recent heavy rains. Evidence presented during the trial proved there was standing water in the wall cavities and the crawl space long after the construction was completed. This led to the growth of the toxigenic fungi. “You couldn’t have made the framing in that house more wet if you had sprayed it with a firehose," stated Vance.

By the time the Haynes discovered the mold, it was too late. Mrs. Haynes and the children were exhibiting neurologic and immune system damage. Paul Haynes reported the problem to Adair Homes, but the company refused to take responsibility. The family was forced to flee their new house in an effort to save the health of the mother and young sons.

Two separate medical evaluations substantiated that both Renee Haynes and her son, Michael, had mold antibodies in their blood, indicative of dangerous exposure levels to mold. Numerous experts, including a fungal immunologist, an occupational therapist and a neuropsychologist testified concerning the Haynes children's developmental and sensory integration disorders that began shortly after moving into the Adair built home. The family's treating physicians and therapists agreed that Liam’s and Michael’s medical needs from the mold exposure will continue for several years to come. Michael’s teacher testified that he was placed in a special disabled room at school and may need to remain there until at least junior high school. She expects Liam to suffer the same fate.

Amazingly, the Haynes family almost did not even get to tell their story to a jury. Adair, like many other commercial entities, utilizes an arbitration clause in its contract. That clause designates a specific preferred arbitration service. Adair uses Construction Arbitration Services, Inc., a company based far away from Adair's market, in Dallas, Texas. After the case was filed, Adair moved to stay the case pending arbitration and submitted an affidavit from the owner of the arbitration service, Marshall Lippman. The judge allowed the case to go to trial when the family's attorney showed that Lippman had submitted a false affidavit concealing the fact that he had been disbarred by the State of New York and Washington D.C. The disbarments occurred because Lippman had been found to have stolen funds from his clients.

Dr.Bruce Kelman of GlobalTox,Inc, a Washington based environmental risk management company, testified as an expert witness for the defense, as he does in mold cases throughout the country. Upon viewing documents presented by the Hayne's attorney of Kelman's prior testimony from a case in Arizona, Dr. Kelman altered his under oath statements on the witness stand. He admitted the Manhattan Institute, a national political think-tank, paid GlobalTox $40,000 to write a position paper regarding the potential health risks of toxic mold exposure. Although much medical research finds otherwise, the controversial piece claims that it is not plausible the types of illnesses experienced by the Haynes family and reported by thousands from across the US, could be caused by "toxic mold" exposure in homes, schools or office buildings.

In 2003, with the involvement of the US Chamber of Commerce and ex-developer, US Congressman Gary Miller (R-CA), the GlobalTox paper was disseminated to the real estate, mortgage and building industries'associations. A version of the Manhattan Institute commissioned piece may also be found as a position statement on the website of a United States medical policy-writing body, the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine.

Vision of Amberly - Officially Introduced to North Carolina

Amberly, the highly anticipated master planned community, will be one of the Triangle's largest when completed, with 5,000 homes spanning 1,000 acres in western Cary. The community will offer residents many opportunities previously unavailable in the Triangle and all of NC

Cary, NC (PRWEB) March 9, 2022 -- The developers of the highly anticipated Amberly development in Cary officially unveiled their vision for the 5,000-home master planned community. At a "Friends of Amberly" event at the Matthews House in Cary, several members of the Amberly team delivered dedication speeches, and introduced many Amberly partners and associates to a "Vision of Amberly" DVD presentation, and an official premiere of Amberly's logo and creative elements.

The presentation provided a platform for developer GS Carolina and owner L.M. Sandler & Sons to express their gratitude for all of those who took part in the community's conceptualization and development. Amberly's principals showed their appreciation for the land planners and architects, who helped guide the Amberly vision and map out its future.

"The foundation of this community is the result of a team of individuals and groups, some of the most talented and reputable in the industry that we cannot thank enough for what they've contributed," said David Guy, Development Manager of Amberly.

The developers extended their gratitude to the teams of builders, including Pulte Homes, KB Home, the Amberly Builder Group, and Del Webb, developers of the Active Adult neighborhoods of Amberly. It's been acknowledged that these homebuilders and developers, for the next several years, will establish what helps make this an all-encompassing community. Each builder's individual home styles will appeal to young, growing and mature families, as well as those seeking active adult lifestyles and retirement settings.

The Amberly team also expressed its gratitude to the Town of Cary, Mayor Ernie McAlister and several dignitaries and council members – those who worked alongside the developers for the past few years to help make Amberly possible from a legislative standpoint. The list of Amberly's friends also included the residents of the Town of Cary who contributed to the "Vision of Amberly DVD" through their interviews and stories.

The Friends of Amberly event continued to reveal the developer's inspirations for the community. Amberly is described by its designers as an all-encompassing community aimed at establishing a wholesome lifestyle – all centered around four principal elements – Environment, Education, Wellness and Technology.

According to the developers, each element is brought to life by a number of components of the community and a vast assortment of amenities, activities and exclusive opportunities. "Our entire team has poured their efforts into making this a monumental development – a vast natural setting and environment that will be a fully integrated residential community where the greatest variety of residents can thrive and grow," said Bob Jones, General Manager of Amberly.

"Amberly, with its wide range of opportunities made available for all lifestyles, is truly becoming a first for the state of North Carolina, a way of life that has never been offered. All of our partners and friends who contributed to Amberly's creation can be proud," added Guy.

Amberly, an L.M. Sandler & Sons Inc. community, is being developed by GS Carolina of Charlotte and a number of the industry's most established partners and associates. As with the Sandler & Sons' best selling community and 2004 community of the year, Bedford At Falls River, and the award-winning Wakefield Plantation, L.M. Sandler & Sons is dedicated to making Amberly another premier community in the Triangle area. Amberly is situated on the western edge of Cary, straddling the border of Wake and Chatham Counties, and is located just off Highway 55, which will soon intersect with I-540

Handyman Network Franchise Opens in Gardena

South-Bay Businessman and Entrepreneur Opens Handyman Network Franchise in Gardena to Serve Homeowners’ Increasing Needs For Quality home Repairs, Remodeling

Gardena, CA (PRWEB) March 9, 2022 -- Dan Burley, a South-Bay businessman and entrepreneur, has opened a Handyman Network® office in Gardena. As a Handyman Network franchisee, Burley offers fully licensed and insured contractors who provide prompt, professional home maintenance and improvement services--from simple repairs to full remodels--including drywall, electrical, fencing, painting, plumbing, and more. Burley’s Handyman Network office will serve homeowners in Gardena, Hermosa Beach, Lawndale, Manhattan Beach, and Redondo Beach. The Gardena office is the 24th franchise of Handyman Network Inc., which this month celebrates five years of successful operations.

“I opened the Gardena Handyman Network franchise in order to help local homeowners improve and preserve their home investment,” said Dan Burley, “because many homeowners either don’t have the time or the skills to handle their own home repairs or remodels.”

As the one-and-only national handyman franchise founded by a professional handyman, Handyman Network offers three guarantees unique to the industry, including a written price guarantee (not simply an estimate); an on-time guarantee to show up at the appointed time (or issue a $25 deduction from the bill); and, a 3-Year Peace of Mind Guarantee™ that warranties every job for three years following completion.

“Being a Handyman Network franchisee suits me not only as a businessman and entrepreneur, but also as a local homeowner,” added Burley, “and I’m confident that our dedication to quality, fairness, and professionalism will create a new paradigm for handyman services by overcoming the stigma of other contractors who do inferior work, have limited skills, use mediocre products, practice unfair pricing, show up late, don’t finish jobs, or are unprofessional in general.”

In fact, according to a nationwide survey* released on Feb. 10, 2005 by the National Association of Consumer Agency Administrators and the Consumer Federation of America, grievances about home improvement contractors top the list of consumer complaints, citing reports of substandard workmanship, and contractual and pricing problems (*Source: www.consumerfed.org)

Added Burley, “Handyman Network is a California-licensed general contractor that distinguishes itself by providing professionals who are bonded, insured, versatile, and proficient at performing high-quality home repair and remodel services for the community…and all the work we do comes with work guarantees.”

Additionally, according to the 2005 Harvard University Joint Center for Housing Studies (JCHS) report**, the demand for handyman services has grown substantially over the past decade. The JCHS report attributes this growth to the following: favorable financing costs for home purchases, repairs and remodels; growth of high-income households; home inventory increases; higher homeownership rates; rapidly rising house prices; limited investment alternatives; and, increased improvement and maintenance needs for aging homes (**Source: http://www.jchs.harvard.edu/publications/remodeling/remodeling2005.html).

The Gardena Handyman Network franchise is located at 18177 Western Avenue (Suite A). Office hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays, and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays. For an appointment, property owners can contact Dan Burley at (310) 516-6370 or e-mail protected from spam bots. Handyman Network in Gardena, a California-licensed general contractor (license #854887), is also seeking skilled home repair and remodeling professionals with 10 years or more of experience. Handyman Network accepts check or credit card payments (no cash accepted for homeowners’ protection). For more information on Handyman Network, visit www.Handyman-Network.com

Dan Burley, a Hawthorne resident for the past eleven years, is a second-generation Southern Californian who grew up and attended high school in Inglewood. After receiving his education at Cal Poly Pomona, Burley worked 15 years as an aeronautical engineer for the Department of Air Force in Los Angeles. He later obtained his pilot’s license, flew commercially, and taught flight school. He also taught fifth grade at Denker Avenue and 135th Street elementary schools in Gardena. Dan’s entrepreneurial background also includes running his own Internet-based business selling diet services and supplements over the Web.

Handyman Network, Inc., co-owned and founded by Brian Kaskavalciyan, CEO, and Thomas Fall -- the original Handyman Network handyman--is headquartered in Long Beach, California. Since opening on March 1, 2000, Handyman Network has become one of the leading home improvement companies in Southern California, employing only skilled handymen and servicing hundreds of clients throughout the Southland. Additionally, 25 Handyman Network franchises are now operating throughout North America, providing reliable, professional, and high-quality services to homeowners in U.S. and Canadian communities. Fully insured, Handyman Network is a licensed general contractor in each state or territory where it does business, specializing in small- to- medium-sized home repairs and remodels. Each Handyman Network handyman passes through stringent screening processes and are required to take additional training, provided by Handyman University®. Handyman Network also offers a book authored by its founders, entitled “Hassle-Free Handyman” (http://www.HassleFreeHandyman.com/), which helps homeowners maintain and improve their home values by providing tips on how to hire and work with a handyman.

Jury Finds Toxic Mold Harmed Oregon Family, Holds Construction Company Responsible

In one of the first toxic mold jury verdicts in the Northwest, the jury found in favor of Paul and Renee Haynes and awarded the Sandy family $498,418 for breach of contract as well as personal injury to Renee Haynes and sons Michael, 6, and Liam, 4

(PRWEB) March 9, 2022 -- A Clackamas County jury on Friday (March 4, 2022) held Adair Homes Inc. of Beaverton responsible for improper construction that allowed toxic mold to thrive inside a Sandy, Oregon family's new home and that led to that family's severe respiratory, digestive and other health problems.

In one of the first toxic mold jury verdicts in the Northwest, the jury found in favor of Paul and Renee Haynes and awarded the Sandy family $498,418 for breach of contract as well as personal injury to Renee Haynes and sons Michael, 6, and Liam, 4.

The children and their mother suffered from diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and respiratory problems that the jury agreed was caused by the toxic molds in the new home, whose drywall and insulation were installed while the frame was still wet. Those wet conditions allowed the mold to grow, experts said.

"You couldn't have made the framing in that house more wet if you had sprayed it with a firehose. This verdict is significant because it holds construction companies responsible when they negligently build sick buildings," said Kelly Vance, the family's attorney.

Adair Homes, Inc.builds hundreds of residences each year in Oregon, Washington and Idaho for low and moderate income customers. The company built the house on the Haynes family' s five-acre lot in early 2002. The family discovered the mold in the walls four months after moving in. Their symptoms had already set in and with the discovery of the toxic mold, they called the company, which denied responsibility.

"We had been sick since moving in and when we found the mold, we called Adair. The company said that the mold was not a problem, and that we should not worry about it so we stayed six weeks longer until my symptoms got even worse. We moved out after my face fell numb," said Renee Haynes. The family is living in its old home, on the same lot as the contaminated building.

At trial the evidence showed that there was standing water inside the wall cavities and in the crawl space for many months after construction was completed. Experts testified that this trapped moisture led to the growth of toxic mold.

The medical expert for the Haynes family confirmed through blood tests performed by two different doctors that Renee Haynes and Michael had mold antibodies in their blood. The presence of such antibodies indicates a significant exposure.

Several experts, including a medical doctor, occupational therapists and a clinical and neuropsychologist testified concerning the Haynes children's developmental and sensory integration disorders after moving into the Adair house. The Haynes doctors and therapists all agreed that Liam's and Michael's treatment will continue for several years. Michael's teacher testified that he was placed in a special disabled room at school and may need to remain there until at least junior high school. She expects Liam to suffer the same fate.

The Haynes family almost did not even get to tell their story to a jury. Adair, like many other commercial entities, utilizes an arbitration clause in its contract. That clause designates a specific arbitration service - Construction Arbitration Services -- based in Dallas, Texas as Adair's preferred arbitration service. After the case was filed, Adair moved to stay the case pending arbitration and submitted an affidavit from the owner of the arbitration service, Marshall Lippman.

The judge allowed the case to go to trial when the family' attorney showed that Lippman had submitted a false affidavit concealing the fact that he had been disbarred by the State of New York and Washington D.C. The disbarments occurred because Lippman had been found to have stolen funds from his clients.

Buddy Cleveland, Jr., director of Construction Sciences Research Foundation (CSRF) and Senior Vice President of Bentley Systems Inc., Exton, Pa.; Jim Glymph, Partner, Gehry Partners, LLP, and CEO, Gehry Technologies, LLC, Los Angeles; and Patrick MacLeamy, CEO of HOK, San Francisco.

Exton, PA (PRWEB) March 8, 2022 -- RCG Productions, LLC, producer of AEC - Science & Technology (AEC-ST), has announced keynote speakers and topics for the June 2005 conference in Orlando, Florida.

All keynote programs focus on the impact on the built environment as new technologies for documentation; sharing and distribution are developed and implemented. Keynote speakers and panel moderators include: A. B. Buddy Cleveland, Jr., director of Construction Sciences Research Foundation (CSRF) and Senior Vice President of Bentley Systems Inc., Exton, Pa.; Jim Glymph, Partner, Gehry Partners, LLP, and CEO, Gehry Technologies, LLC, Los Angeles; and Patrick MacLeamy, CEO of HOK, San Francisco.

The Tuesday, June 21 panel discussion, “Extending the Reach of AEC Content: Creating A Common Language,” is moderated by Cleveland and addresses the issues surrounding AEC content – it’s nature, complexity, and challenges – and the pragmatic, effective approaches that can be employed today to extend the reach of AEC content.

The session, sponsored by CSRF, focuses on creating a common language for documentation and service delivery for the $3.4 trillion architecture, engineering and construction industry. Extending the richness of AEC content to the large community that still relies on paper is perhaps the most promising opportunity for the industry to enhance the return on its significant investment in creating AEC content.

On Wednesday, June 22, Glymph presents “Digital Practice: The Integration of Design and Technology at Gehry Partners.” In this session Glymph addresses the role of digital technology in the design and construction process. Gehry is a global leader in the effective application of computer tools to the design practice and its sister company, Gehry Technologies, promotes design and construction methodologies that view three-dimensional models of construction information as components of the project contract documentation. Glymph will describe recent work, computer technology’s role in it, and will propose a new role in the AEC project team - the Information Architect Digital Practice in planning, fabrication and construction.

On Thursday June 23, the National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) and International Alliance for Interoperability (IAI sponsor “Create Value by Building Smart: Lifecycle Facility Optimization through Building Information Models." This session features a keynote address by MacLeamy and a panel discussion covering the challenges confronting the construction industry including: fragmentation, low productivity, unsatisfactory quality and litigation as impediments to improving the value of the construction delivery process.

MacLeamy advocates changing the fragmented nature of the industry into a vertically integrated, highly efficient system that emulates the manufacturing industry and supports this vision as a founder and international chairman of the International Alliance for Interoperability (IAI), an organization which fosters standards for data exchange in the building industry.

The AEC-ST conference addresses information technology needs of the entire team. It covers: how information and electronic data are used and exchanged; how resources and assets are leveraged; how information standards are defined and shared. Program content is organized by Randall Newton, editor-in-chief of AEC Automation Newsletter and analyst with Bethesda, Md.-based Cyon Research, who has more than 19 years experience in the AEC technology industry.

The panel will address the key findings and recommendations of recent industry assessments by National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Construction Users Round Table (CURT) and their implication on Science and Technology in AEC as well as available and emerging remedies.

The AEC - Science & Technology keynote sessions will headline the most comprehensive Information Technology conference for the AEC industry in the United States. It addresses interoperability across all disciplines that exchange data in the process of planning, designing, building, owning and maintaining structures and infrastructure. The event premieres June 20-23, 2005 at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort and Convention Center, Orlando, Florida. Conferences run June 20-23; exhibits and software demonstrations are open June 21-23.

AEC - Science & Technology is co-located with related events, including the AEC/GIS IT Analyst Conference chaired by Bradley Holtz, president and CEO of Cyon Research. Holtz formerly was conference director A/E/C Systems International and has been involved in analysis and consulting in the CAD and engineering software industry since 1977.Ecobuild America, a conference and exhibition addressing the needs of the expanding green and sustainable building market, fm/IT, a conference addressing information technology and the facility manager, and the National Specifiers Conference; a conference designed for Specifiers to stay up-to-date with the most advanced automation and production tools for specs.

George Borkovich, creator and co-founder of the A/E/C Systems show more than 20 years ago, states, “Our success back then was in bringing the entire building team together. Since then, the industry has again fragmented, so we have created a co-conference environment with a format and content that encourage all the disciplines to come together to advance technology development across the entire building team.”

Solar-Powered Vehicle Barriers Provide Anti-terrorist Protection for Remote U.S. Government Dam

Intelligent Perimeter Systems’ retractable barriers go from invisible to fully upright in seconds and stop vehicles up to 30,000 pounds traveling at 50 miles per hour. The new technology allows high-security vehicle barriers to be installed to protect unmanned facilties and remote locations lacking electrical power.

Dublin, OH (PRWEB) March 7, 2022 -- Intelligent Perimeter Systems (IPS), a manufacturer of advanced counter-terrorist vehicle barrier and traffic control systems, today announced it has completed installation of an innovative perimeter security system at an undisclosed U.S. Bureau of Reclamation dam in the western U.S.

The Bureau of Reclamation awarded the security contract to IPS in July 2004. “The mission was to provide counter-terrorist protection in a remote location lacking access to electrical power,” said IPS CEO Ronald E. Scherer. “Our solar-powered Model 400 barriers, combined with a custom monitoring system that permits authorized personnel to monitor the status of the barriers in real-time, created an ideal perimeter security system for this unmanned location.”

Designed to stop a 30,000-pound vehicle traveling at 50 mph, the retractable steel posts (also called bollards) are installed underground in sets of three or four, with the top of each post flush with the roadway. At the push of a button, the swipe of an access card, or a signal from a radio controller or satellite, the 1,400-pound bollards spring upright, reaching their full height of 36 inches in 6 seconds or less. Each bollard has self-contained hydraulic pumps and integrated battery backup, increasing its tamper resistance. A fully redundant design with no single point of failure ensures that the system works even if one barrier fails.

“The ability to operate from solar power represents a distinct advance in vehicle barrier technology,” Scherer said. “From desert locations to mountainous areas, we are taking orders for anti-terrorist vehicle barriers in places that couldn’t be adequately protected prior to the introduction of our products.”

IPS has had a number of other major installations and orders over the past 6 months, allowing the company to expand its manufacturing facilities in Battle Creek, Michigan. IPS systems currently protect major utility, government and corporate facilities around the U.S.

About Intelligent Perimeter Systems
Headquartered in the Dublin, Ohio (a suburb of Columbus), Intelligent Perimeter Systems is an innovative developer and integrator of retractable traffic control and vehicle barrier systems. Its products allow government and private organizations to create a secure, protected environment for people and property. Developed through a Department of Defense anti-terrorism grant, the company’s high-security vehicle control systems create an impenetrable barrier that deploys in seconds and holds K12 anti-terrorist certification from the U.S. Department of State. IPS has been engineering and manufacturing vehicle access control equipment since 2002 and sells its products worldwide. For more information and to view a crash-test video, visit www.ibarrier.com

Bob Moore Construction Safety Director Named to AGC Committees

Dino Sideris, Safety Director for Bob Moore Construction, has been invited to participate in two of Quoin’s top Safety-related working groups. Quoin is the North / East Texas Chapter of the Association of General Contractors (AGC), the oldest and largest trade association in the construction industry.

Arlington, TX (PRWEB) March 7, 2022 -- Dino Sideris, Safety Director for Bob Moore Construction, has been invited to participate in two of Quoin’s top Safety-related working groups.

Quoin is the North / East Texas Chapter of the Association of General Contractors (AGC), the oldest and largest trade association in the construction industry. A major component of Quoin’s support to Texas general contractors is providing safety program education, to help general contractors protect their employees and subcontractors and comply with OSHA requirements.

QUOIN’s Safety Forum is a group of local AGC members who meet monthly to discuss and resolve common safety-related issues in a consistent manner. Sideris has been selected to join the forum. He will also present on how Bob Moore Construction implemented the new Design Build Objective Two (DBO2) program, a PDA-based system for managing and documenting jobsite safety inspections that was developed by QUOIN and AGC.

The Safety Leadership Committee is a select group of Quoin members who drive greater quality and awareness in safety throughout the local AGC community. Sideris was invited to support this committee's effort to develop a mock emergency drill for Safety Forum members to test their responses to a real-world situation.

“This is just a natural progression of what we’re doing at Bob Moore Construction,” said Dino Sideris. “Our superintendents have been certified in CPR, first aid and OSHA 30-Hour Awareness Training. We’ve implemented the DBO2 tracking system to ensure that an aggressive inspection schedule is followed and documented. Future enhancements may include improved communications via our website at www.GeneralContractor.com. We’re using the latest technological advancements, rigorous training procedures, heightened awareness at all levels of the company and strict adherence to regulatory requirements to keep our jobsites as safe as possible for our employees and subcontractors. Quoin is working to drive that same focus and awareness in the rest of the Dallas / Fort Worth construction industry, so I’m very happy to support what they’re doing.”

“We’re pleased to see Dino’s expertise being recognized by Quoin,” said Ed McGuire, Vice President of Construction for Bob Moore Construction. “Safety is an important part of our business. OSHA pays very close attention to our industry; 47% of their inspections each year take place at construction job sites. More and more we find that clients review our safety program as part of their process for choosing a general contractor; our longstanding focus on safety has become not just a moral imperative and legal requirement, but a strong selling point as well. In 2004 we added Dino to our team to take our excellent safety program and make it an exemplary one. Dino has done that, earning recognition from the St. Paul\Travelers Group insurance company as well as Quoin. We hope that Quoin and AGC can leverage Dino’s expertise to improve working conditions at jobsites all across North Texas, and not just at Bob Moore Construction projects.”

Making a Good First Impression- Kara Homes

Expanding on a successful 22-year career in land development and residential construction, Zudi Karagjozi, President and founder of Kara Homes, is positioned for the challenges of today's home building market.

(PRWEB) March 5, 2022 -- Karagjozi, the president and founder of East Brunswick-based Kara Homes, has been getting home buyers’ attention and keeping it long enough to have been named the fastest growing homebuilder in the nation by BUILDER MAGAZINE in 2002

Kara Homes, which has 13 developments in Monmouth and Ocean counties, topped the magazine’s list by going from $1 million in revenue in 1999 to $34 million in 2001. For a homebuilder, revenue is the value of sales closed during a particular time period.

Kara remains small in comparison to long established builders such as Middletown based Hovnanian Enterprises Inc., the largest homebuilder in New Jersey, which had revenue of $1.74 billion in fiscal 2001. But Karagjozi said the company has made big strides since he started with four employees in a leaky sales trailer in October 1999. He now has 140 employees.

Karagjozi said he tries to grab a home buyer’s attention by combining features usually found in an upscale home or mini mansion with a price that is still within reach of most middle-class people.

Buyers want more-
Home buyer today do not want the house they grew up in, he said, they want something more grand. One key element is the two-story-high entry, Karagjozi said. “That’s what you always you always saw in the movie.”

Other features are a balcony that overlooks the first floor, high ceilings with skylights, a lot of sunlight in the kitchen and dining areas, whirlpool tubs and impressive kitchens and bathrooms, he said.

“Kitchens and bathrooms help sell homes,” Karagjozi said. “And the family room, the family room has to be awesome, whenever possible. That’s the hook.”

Kara Homes attempts to offer these elements at a price the middle-class buyer can afford, Karagjozi said. The average price of the company’s single-family homes, which range in size from 1,700 to 5,000 square feet, is about $400,000 he said.

Good timing-
Karagjozi said that he picked a good time to start the company, given the low mortgage rates that have fueled booming housing market, over the last three years.

Karagjozi, who received a bachelor’s degree in marketing from Boston college in 1981, said he was reminded of a quotation he once read from the head of a company that had been successful: “First was timing, second was luck and third was talent.”

Karagjozi was not always lucky. In his first attempt to make the transition from real estate to developer be encountered several obstacles.

Karagjozi had purchased an option on site in Old Bridge in 1986 and had received preliminary approvals by 1988. “That was the beginning of the end,” he said. “And I knew it was going to happen because I was 28 years old at that time and didn’t know anything. My professionals are telling me I need off-site improvements that cost about $3.5 million I’m saying, “What’s an off-site improvement?”

In addition to the legal and engineering costs needed to get the project approved, Karagjozi and his parents had to spend $25,000 every six months to keep their option on the property alive. They also had to purchase eight other parcels near the site.

Meanwhile, the demand for housing slackened. Of the initial $915,000 invested to try to get the project started, Karagjozi said he risked $400,000 personally. Some years his wife, Lysbeth, earned more money at her job as a flight attendant then he did, he said.

“You know the old saying ‘No pain, no gain?” he said with a laugh. “I’ve had a hell of a lot of pain.”

Eventually Karagjozi and his partners teamed with an established developer Matzel and Mumford, and the project, High Pointe was completed with 188 homes. But Karagjozi said it was not until 1995 before he recovered his initial investment and began to see a profit.

Karagjozi and his wife and daughters, now live in High Pointe. He believes the key to the housing market is the monthly payment. As long as it does not cost much more per month to buy a house than it does to rent, homes will sell, he said.

Keith T. Gumbinger vice president of HSH Associates, a Butler based company that tracks mortgage rates, agreed.

Rates create demand-
“The decline of interest rates means more people could afford to buy homes,” he said. “That helped produce demand in the market. That keeps affordability at a relatively high pace.”

As long as mortgage rates are low, and they are currently near 40-year-lows Gumbinger said, people can afford the monthly payment to buy a house, even at what would used to be considered “high” prices. Average rates for a 30-year fixed rate loan are at 6.13 percent and borrowers can get lower than 6 percent on a 15-year loan.

Karagjozi truly got into the market at a great time. Karagjozi said he knows boom times won’t last forever. He said his goal is “to be able to stay financially solid for the worst of times. Many builders cannot make it.”

One option is to acquire more capital by taking privately held company public. “We might entertain that,” Karagjozi said,” We’re analyzing it.” Kara's web page is www.karahomes.com

“Great Taste” Show to Feature Pioneer Log Homes of British Columbia, CN

With more than 30 years of family tradition in business, Pioneer’s homes are professionally constructed to the precise standards and demands of its clients

Deerfield Beach, FL (PRWEB) March 5, 2022 -- Platinum Television Group is pleased to announce the selection of Pioneer Log Homes of British Columbia Ltd. for its innovative, educational television series, Great Taste. The company will be featured in a segment on “Building Your Perfect Dream Home” in the Lifestyle Series.

Pioneer Log Homes features handcrafted, full-scribe log home construction, from log shell packages to full home packages complete with custom handcrafted windows, doors and cabinets. These range from small log cabins to more than 10,000 square feet of luxurious living space, built to order.

Logs are natural insulators radiating heat back into the home while, at the same time, providing an aesthetic look unmatched by any other building material. The company has access to the world’s finest stands of Spruce, Fir, Pine and Western Red Cedar to utilize in its construction. All of the logs are hand-peeled using drawknives and then finished with axes and slicks to highlight the natural beauty of the wood.

Pioneer is a family business: After studying the almost lost art of handcrafted log home construction, Bryan Reid Sr. established Pioneer Log Homes of British Columbia in 1973. Since then the company has expanded into three fully operational building sites, Williams Lake, Soda Creek and Nimpo Lake. Close family support was essential to the success of the business, so brother, André Chevigny, came on board as the company’s General Manager, overseeing the day-to-day operations. Another brother, David Chevigny, established Pioneer Logging and now secures and harvests the timber used in construction. Son, Bryan Reid Jr., oversees the training and operations at the Nimpo Lake building site and brother, Keith Reid, owns and operates Mastercraft Cabinets, Windows and Doors Ltd. Pioneer has also established distributorships in the United States and Europe.

With more than 30 years of family tradition in business, Pioneer’s homes are professionally constructed to the precise standards and demands of its clients. The architectural design department ensures the building of the perfect dream log home by using 3D CAD software to customize plans.

Today, Pioneer Log Homes, has emerged as a comprehensive, state-of-the-art, log home company, recognized throughout the world as the industry leader in handcrafted log home construction and being well positioned to meet the challenges of the new millennium.

Alternate Energy, Inc., to Distribute Apricus™ Products Throughout New England

The high performance solar collector is combined with a unique operating system that has been proven over a thirty-year period. The system eliminates costly heat exchangers and transfer fluids, as well as associated maintenance.

Boston, MA (PRWEB) March 3, 2022 -- Alternate Energy, Inc. unveils revolutionary thermal collector technology products from Apricus™ in the middle of winter! When asked about how winter in Massachusetts would affect them, Steve Pitney, Owner/Operator of Alternate Energy, Inc., said “These don’t need hot summer sun to heat water. They can perform even on cold winter days. Moreover, we can use this heat energy for hot water applications like showers, clothes-washers, baths, dishwashers, and even space heating, and air-conditioning.”

The high performance solar collector is combined with a unique operating system that has been proven over a thirty-year period. The system eliminates costly heat exchangers and transfer fluids, as well as associated maintenance. “The combination is unbeatable.” states Pitney.

These will be featured at Building Energy 05, The Conference and Trade Show for Green and Renewable Energy Professionals, Seaport World Trade Center, Boston, MA March 15-17, 2005.

When asked about the technology Mr. Pitney enthusiastically added, “This is light years ahead of anything previously used in the industry. Apricus™ systems perform at a much higher level, and eliminate the need for an internal heat exchanger. This product is revolutionizing the solar hot water industry. They’re tubes… they’re round! This means they perform much better- even in cold weather- than flat panels do because of the way sunlight hits them. Besides that, flat panels just lose a lot of heat.”

The sun's energy is absorbed and converted to heat by vacuum tubes (collectors) like the one in your coffee thermos. It’s actually a tube within a tube. The tops of the two tubes are bonded together and the air is removed to form a vacuum between them. The outer wall of the tube is made of very strong, transparent, impact-resistant glass. The inner tube (also glass) is specially coated to absorb solar heat while minimizing heat reflection. Heat is trapped in the inner tube because a vacuum is a very effective insulator. It’s so effective that, while the inside of the tube may be 300 degrees Fahrenheit, the outer tube is cold to touch.

According to Mr. Pitney, inside the [inner] glass tube is a copper [heat] pipe that has had the air removed but has a little purified water put in. Because water boiling temperatures decrease as the air pressure is decreased, the heat pipes used in vacuum tube solar collectors have a boiling point of about 86 degrees Fahrenheit (Normally water boils at 212 degrees Fahrenheit.). When the pipe is heated above the eighty-six degree temperature, the water boils [and vaporizes] to the top of the pipe. From there the heat is transferred to a manifold [through which water flows and is thereby heated]. As the heat is lost at the top of the pipe (the condenser), the vapor condenses back to water, returns to the bottom of the heat pipe and, as long as rays from the sun are absorbed and converted to heat by the tube, the process continues repeatedly. With a curved surface, the collectors consistently convert solar energy into heat (until the sun is at a 40-degree angle).

About Alternate Energy, Incorporated
Alternate Energy, Inc. is a renewable energy company based in Plymouth, MA. Alternate Energy specializes in the installation, maintenance, and repair of renewable energy systems such as Solar Hot Water, Photovoltaic (PV), and Wind Turbines.

Demand for Maintenance-Free Living Grows Among Baby Boomers

Depending on which New Jersey home builder you rely on, your dream home could turn into a reality or could remain just that - a dream. KARA HOMES is the one New Jersey home builder committed to building new homes in New Jersey keeping your every requirement in mind. Live out your dream in one of our spacious new homes. Experience the Kara New Homes Collection online. We're sure you'll find the home that’s right for you.

(PRWEB) March 3, 2022 -- When Deborah and Thomas Turcol decided to leave San Deigo after 15 years, they bought the kind of house they had always dreamed of, with open floors, gorgeous views-and no backyard to care for. "We wanted a house that seemed more like a resort," Deborah Turcol said.

The couple moved into a house in an active adult community - an age targeted development for those 55 and above-in Surprise, Ariz. They joined the growing number of baby boomers seeking a different kind of housing, one that offers maintenance-free living not far from where they worked and lived or that's close to family and friends.

“The buyer wants all the goodies with none of the maintenance,” says Dorcas Helfant, general managing partner of Coldwell Banker Professional Realtors. “The boomer can travel, see the world and play golf or tennis when he so chooses. This is a step between single-family and senior housing.”

In its annual survey of baby boomers, Del Webb, a developer, found that 59 percent had plans to relocate for retirement. In a comparable survey in 1999, that figure was 31 percent. Seven percent of those planning to move, or about 2.4 million retiring baby boomers are likely to move to an active adult community.

“Whenever the baby boomers went, whatever they wanted, they created a surge in the market,” says Zudi Karagjozi, president and founder of East-Brunswick, N.J based Kara Homes. “The future of the market lies in fulfilling their needs as they enter their golden years.

Already, there are 7.7 million homes in age-targeted communities, according to the 2001 American Housing Survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau and the Housing and Urban Development Corporation.

“These people are a younger and more energetic group than what we would think of as seniors,” says Stella Koop, an architect with Chicago-based RTKL, a home design company. “Typically their kids are grown up and have gone to college, and they want very little maintenance because many are still working –they don’t want to mow the lawn, shovel the snow or plant flowers.”

Not only is the type of home they want different-single floor, condominium type, often gated-even the prize location is different.

“Older communities were developed in South Florida, Arizona and South California, mainly because of the weather,” says Bob Schultz, a housing consultant based in Boca Raton, Fla. “Now, people in their 50s are not moving to the Sun Belt. They want to stay close to their families in lifestyle communities in places like South Carolina or just outside metros like Chicago or New York.

Thirty-one percent of baby boomers surveyed by Del Webb said they would move only about three hours away from their current locations.

Another recent trend is for people to return places where they went to school or to a university town where they have access to adult education or cultural events and where they are very closer to medical centers, shopping and recreational events.

“For intellectual stimulation, they want to go to college towns like Raleigh in North Carolina and Madison-Wisconsin in the Midwest,” Koop said.

“Since not everyone is inclined toward living in the suburbs, they want the cultural environment of museums, theaters and restaurants,” said Allen F. Goldman, senior vice-president of Applied Development, a Hohoken, N.J.-based developer.

The Turcols can take a 40-minute bus ride to Phoenix to go shopping. They spend $750 a year on maintenance of the grounds around their house, one of 8,000 age-targeted homes in the Sun City Grand complex. “That’s much less than what we paid in san Diego, and we have four golf courses and a lake right here, too.”

There is distinct change in the way these communities are marketed. They are not advertised as assisted living complexes but as resort-style dwellings. Developers say their target customer is one who is already a homeowner and merely looking for a different kind of house.

“The buyer is definitely upper income,” Helfant said. “Not necessarily top-tier but definitely someone who has had properly and is looking to lead a footloose and fancy-free life.”

It helps that the baby boomer’s estimated annual spending power is more than a trillion dollars, according to MetLife’s Mature Market institute analysis.

The average household income for the younger boomers (ages 35-44) is $52,626 after taxes; $54,149 for older boomers (ages 45-54) 70 percent of them are homeowners and 30 percent of their expenditure is on housing.

In may 2003, Gloria Bivins, 54, and Emmett, her husband, sold the house they had lived in for 14 years in Lakewood, N.J., and bought one for the next stage of their lives: One that would offer them more freedom, more time and more space.

“We are empty-nesters, and we wanted a house that needed very little maintenance,” said Gloria Bivins. Kara's web page is www.karahomes.com

BEACHWALK’s Boardwalk, Bay Views and Exceptional Amenities a Rare Find

BEACHWALK Condominium overlooking Tampa Bay offers traditional amenities as well as virtual golf, a rock climbing wall, wine cellar, boat slips, boardwalk and other welcome surprises.

Tampa, FL (PRWEB) March 2, 2022 -- If exceptional amenities make for an exceptional lifestyle then BEACHWALK, the new condominium community overlooking Old Tampa Bay, is in a class all its own.

“When people see our prime bay-front location, the beautiful views, and then the range of truly outstanding amenities we offer, BEACHWALK really sells itself,” notes Don Egnor, director of sales. “These are features rarely found, even at communities selling for two or three times the price. Little wonder visitors are so rapidly becoming owners here at BEACHWALK.”

BEACHWALK overlooks miles of pristine and protected wetlands, open bay, broad lakes and beautiful courtyards near Rocky Point and Dana Shores. Within the relaxed village environment are one and two-bedroom residences with spacious, designer-appointed floor plans. Features include private entries, oversized decks, custom crown moldings, ceramic tiled floors, plush carpeted bedrooms, energy-efficient appliances, private garages and more.

From the new Sales Center buyers can tour BEACHWALK’s three fully furnished models, created by award-winning interior designer Leslie Schlesinger. Schlesinger’s highly praised portfolio of work includes Eden Condominiums in Boca Raton, the Brazilian Court Hotel and Il Lugano in Palm Beach and Audubon Condominium at Feather Sound.

The stylish clubhouse, designed for entertaining and activity, offers owners a complete fitness center, Cyber Café with Wi-Fi service and high-speed internet access, a sunning deck with waterfall and custom swimming pool, a club room with a catering kitchen and a casual juice bar.

And because BEACHWALK is designed to deliver a lifestyle beyond the norm, the clubhouse also features a rock-climbing wall, virtual golf and a climate-controlled community wine cellar.

Beyond the clubhouse owners will have the rare pleasure of strolling along scenic boardwalks, over protected wetlands, to the Bay where inviting gazebos await. Nature enthusiasts will appreciate BEACHWALK’s collaboration with environmental agencies to protect and maintain the sensitive natural areas around the site, and the Florida nature preserve just adjacent to the property.

In keeping with its corporate philosophy of giving back to the community, Ceebraid Signal Corporation, the developer, has pledged more than $45,000 from the sale of BEACHWALK’s residences to Tampa Bay Watch, a non-profit environmental organization focused on preserving the Bay’s wetlands.

An array of other community amenities will add to the exceptional quality of life at BEACHWALK including a private boat dock, 24-hour attended entry gate with remote control access, concierge services and the convenience of a pet walk area.

BEACHWALK is located in the heart of the Tampa Bay area just minutes from Clearwater and major business centers, top-flight shopping, The International Mall, Raymond James Stadium and Tampa International Airport.

“BEACHWALK truly has it all -- stunning water views, ideal location, expansive floor plans and a choice of indoor and outdoor amenities that few will ever experience,” says Adam Schlesinger, president. “We knew what we created here was special and it didn’t take long for others to think so as well.”

Ceebraid-Signal Corporation, well known for its condominium conversions and other residential properties throughout the eastern United States, purchased BEACHWALK, formerly known as Bayside Village, in February 2004. The community is undergoing a major transformation, from site renewal to redevelopment of the units, as well as, common areas and landscaping. Phase One residents will be able to move in to BEACHWALK in late Spring.

Other Ceebraid-Signal Corporation projects include Audubon Condominium on the water in Feather Sound as well as Eden and Bacara condominiums located in Boca Raton, FL; Il Lugano, an exclusive lakefront condominium, and The Brazilian Court, an historic boutique condominium hotel, both in Palm Beach, FL; Gramercy Mews and Chelsea Lofts in New York City, NY; and Highgrove, the cornerstone of high-end condominiums in Stamford, CT.

The exclusive sales and marketing agent for BEACHWALLK is Coldwell Banker, The Condo Store, which specializes in the sales and marketing of luxury condominium developments. For more information, call 404-705-1582 or visit www.condostore.com

BEACHWALK’s condominium residences are priced from the $150,000s for one bedroom units and from the $190,000 for two-bedroom units. Floor plans range up to 1,298 square feet.

The Sales Center is located at 5831-01 Memorial Highway in Tampa, FL and is open from 10 am to 6 pm weekdays, 10 am. to 5 pm. on Saturday and from 12 Noon to 5 pm on Sunday. Call 813-884-7755 or visit www.beachwalkcondos.net for more information.

Authtel Honored with Professional Insurance Marketing Association’s Product and Process Innovative Marketing Award

(P2IMA) Outstanding Innovation in Insurance Industry
Jon Hamilton, CEO of Authtel, announced that the company was recognized by the Professional Insurance Marketing Association (PIMA) with its Product and Process Innovative Marketing Award (P2IMA). The award was presented to Authtel for its patent-pending interactive Company Specific Permission (CSP) Marketing System and iCD.

Kennett Square, PA (PRWEB) March 1, 2022 -- Jon Hamilton, CEO of Authtel, announced that the company was recognized by the Professional Insurance Marketing Association (PIMA) with its Product and Process Innovative Marketing Award (P2IMA). The award was presented to Authtel for its patent-pending interactive Company Specific Permission (CSP) Marketing System and iCD

“Authtel’s innovative new process seamlessly provides telemarketers with consumer prospects that are interested in what insurance marketers have to say – and equally important, those prospects most likely to buy in the wake of telemarketing Do Not Call legislation,” explained Hamilton. “Specifically, the tool allows Authtel’s clients to gain marketing permission while also delivering compelling value propositions – including offers, trials, and premiums – to prospects.”

Authtel’s system is based on its CSP Engine, a database-driven marketing system that checks for compliance with various “do not” lists and then initiates a permission campaign using iCD and other marketing tools (post cards, e-mails, etc.). Names and contact information of consumers who give consent are returned to Authtel’s client and a permission audit trial is maintained.
“Ultimately, this process leads to more cost-effective, consumer-friendly direct marketing,” Hamilton continued.

The first Product and Process Innovative Marketing Awards were presented at the 31st Annual Meeting in Tucson, Arizona this month. Entries were judged equally on three critical elements: originality, salability, and profitability. Award originator and PIMA member, Jay Jaffe, had challenged the industry to submit its most innovative new insurance products and processes.

“Product and process innovation are the heart of insurance marketing success,” said Jaffe. “This award recognizes these important efforts and strives to continually share innovative concepts throughout the industry.”

“With Authtel’s revolutionary system, regulatory compliance is maintained and consumers are more receptive to the marketing message presented to them,” said Jaffe of Authtel’s winning solution. “As an innovative process, it allows marketers to gain a consumer’s permission while staying within the bounds of today’s stringent telemarketing regulations.”

Authtel Incorporated, headquartered in Kennett Square, PA, is a trusted leader in providing comprehensive and cost-effective regulatory compliance and consumer consent acquisition solutions to direct marketers.
