Sea Gull Lighting Partners with Builders to Provide Full Line of ENERGY STAR® Qualified Lighting Products

Sea Gull Lighting now offers more than 500 ENERGY STAR lighting products for homebuilders and consumers.

(PRWEB) May 31, 2021 -- Sea Gull Lighting Products, Inc., (www.seagulllighting.com) a leading manufacturer and marketer of decorative and functional lighting products, has expanded its long-term commitment to builders, designers and architects by adding many new energy-efficient lighting products to its ENERGY STAR® line of products. With this new value-added initiative, Sea Gull Lighting now offers its industry partners an unprecedented array of ENERGY STAR®-qualified lighting fixtures and ceiling fans totaling more than 500 SKUs.

Named ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year by the EPA in 2004 and 2005, Sea Gull Lighting is dedicated to meeting industry and consumer needs for energy-efficient lighting that conserves energy, better protects the environment and meets increasingly stringent ENERGY STAR Advanced Lighting Package demands and new legislation such as California Title 24 Residential Lighting Standard.

Introduced by the EPA in the fall of 2003, the ENERGY STAR Advanced Lighting Package ALP is a voluntary construction option that details the use of ENERGY STAR qualified lighting fixtures in homes To qualify as an Advanced Lighting Package, at least half of the lighting fixtures used within high-use rooms such as kitchens, dining rooms, living rooms and family rooms must be ENERGY STAR qualified. In addition, 25 percent of the lighting used in medium to low use rooms such as bedrooms, basements, dens and garages must bear the ENERGY STAR label, while 50 percent of affixed outdoor lighting must be ENERGY STAR certified.

“There are numerous benefits for embracing this program,” says Sam Rashkin, the EPA’s National Director of ENERGY STAR Homes. “In today’s bustling housing market, home owners and prospective owners are continually looking for new ways to increase the value of their investments, staying on the cutting edge with the latest technologies and saving money. ENERGY STAR qualified lighting does all this, while helping to better protect the environment. “By enlisting in the ENERGY STAR program and including the Advanced Lighting Package in their efforts, builders, designers and architects can distinguish themselves within their communities as leaders in environmental stewardship and efficient construction.”

In addition to federal programs, ENERGY STAR qualified lighting is also expected to impact ever-increasing number of statewide initiatives mandating the usage of energy-efficient lighting. For instance, the “Residential Lighting Portion of the California 2005 Building Energy Efficiency Standards” offers detailed high-efficiency lighting requirements for all projects requiring a building permit beyond October 1, 2005. These requirements also impact the use of lighting including dimmers and occupancy sensors in nearly every area of the home ranging from the kitchen and bathroom to the garage and home’s exterior.

Once enacted, California Title 24 is also expected to effect other states’ energy conservation initiatives since much of the country will be closely monitoring the program’s success. As a result, ENERGY STAR qualified products as offered by Sea Gull Lighting will also help homeowners and contractors comply with future legislation by not only meeting, but exceeding current Title 24 legislation specifications.

As for ENERGY STAR benefits, the mark, which signifies strict compliance with EPA testing guidelines, is presently recognizable by more than 64 percent of all consumers nationwide. This is because many homeowners already realize that:

· The replacement of only five frequently used lighting fixtures with ENERGY STAR alternatives can save approximately $60 a year in energy costs

· ENERGY STAR fixtures ship with bulbs that must have a minimum life of 10,000 hours (approx. 9 years life at 3 hours/day)

· ENERGY STAR lighting products generate about 78 percent less heat than standard incandescent lighting. This means it is cool to the touch and can help reduce home cooling costs.

· ENERGY STAR qualified products have helped consumers save $10 billion in energy costs in 2004 alone.

For more information on ENERGY STAR qualified lighting benefits and the ENERGY STAR Advanced Lighting Package, builders, designers and architects are urged to visit www.seagulllighting.com/energystar or www.energystar.gov. Once enrolled in the program, the EPA and Sea Gull Lighting supports all ENERGY STAR Advanced Lighting Package partners with numerous marketing materials including cost-saving calculator tools, brochures, fact sheets and a listing on the ENERGY STAR Web site.

About ENERGY STAR

Today, with assistance from the Department of Energy, the ENERGY STAR program offers businesses and consumers energy-efficient solutions to save energy, money and help protect the environment for future generations.

MGS Design and MGS USA TRUE Stainless Steel Faucet Collections--Great Italian Designs and Materials That Stand the Test of Time.

MGS USA, the American importer of MGS Progetti, the Italian-based manufacturer of stainless steel faucets for the kitchen and bath, introduces its newest collection for spring of 2005 at KBIS. Plumbing fixtures for the kitchen and bathroom, fabricated from stainless steel.

Studio City, CA (PRWEB) May 31, 2021 -- Working with stainless steel to create faucetry with seamless fittings and concealed fasteners is as much of an art form as it is an act of precise technology and mechanical ingenuity. Grovellona Toce near Lake Orta, located outside of Milano, Italy is a small town known for stainless steel craftsman and fabrication businesses. It is the location of MGS Progetti, also referred to as MGS Designs in North America. There are other recognized stainless steel products that are produced on Lake Orta, such as Alessi.

In 1997, MGS started producing high quality faucets for consumers with extreme attention to detail and design. After some time, they realized that it was necessary to make a fundamental change from chrome plated brass, which was traditionally used in the industry. The thought was to create faucets and fixtures from stainless steel, a noble metal that is unalterable, non-toxic, non-corrosive and high temperature resistant. Although making faucets out of stainless steel posed many problems during manufacturing, the company still persevered. In 2001, MGS began producing the UNICO faucet, which became recognized as the “Rolls Royce” of faucets in Europe.

The first stainless steel product designs proved to be complicated, but MGS was still determined to find another way to produce their faucets. While most other manufacturers only finish their products to look like stainless steel because of the complexity and cost of engineering and production, MGS continued with their commitment.
After four years of research, MGS discovered and developed a new application of Investment Casting Technology that was predominantly used for high tech parts in the aviation, aerospace and medical industries. Using the most progressive machines available, each part is seamless and smooth, without the use of screws. The result is a product that is one hundred percent stainless steel. After the mechanical fabrication, the final touch is given by expert polishers who hand finish each single part to an impeccable shine or soft luster of natural brushed stainless steel.

“MGS offers a truly unique product,” says Eric Goldman, National Sales Manager, MGS USA. “Each faucet that MGS develops takes time and precision, and is made with the finest stainless steel materials in the world. Many of our clients in the yachting industry use MGS products for their durability and non-corrosive materials.”

MGS’s 2005 collection consists of minimal designs for both kitchen and bathroom faucets. The kitchen line consists of three-hole and single hole varieties, while the bathroom line includes 2-valve and single control faucets. Each faucet can be wall or deck mounted, and is available in polished and matte finishes.

Kitchen Collection
The choice of professional chefs who insist on incorporating the durability and quality of commercial stainless steel fixtures found in the world’s finest kitchens. MGS introduces premium quality solid stainless steel faucets designed for residential kitchens and food-prep work islands.

The UNICO, RANDA K, VELA and T45 models offer a pull out spout with stainless steel flexible hose. The spout is equipped with an anti-lime aerator and a check-valve that prevents the back-flow of impure water. Also available for the kitchen, the BOMA, RANDA, RANDA KL and VELA L collections.

Bath Collection
MGS has developed a stylized collection of fixtures and accessories for the bath that are simple in design, sophisticated in style, and highly innovative in functionality. Another innovation is that MGS provides a stainless steel “rough-in” kit that allows the installer the ability prepare the shower or tub valve locations and connections in advance, and the set the fixtures once the final tile or stone surfaces are in place.

New Thermostatic Shower Column or Tub/Shower Combination
MGS’s newest shower valve is offered as an “exposed” and “in-wall” Thermostatic mixer. The valve incorporates a volume control that is operated independently of the temperature control. The shower set includes a matching shower head and arm that is also designed from stainless steel.

MGS is one of the only “true stainless steel” fixture manufactures offering products in North America. MGS USA is the exclusive importer of MGS fixtures for the bathroom, outdoors and kitchen. Products are available through a network of dealers located through out the United States and Canada.

Julien® Home Refinements™ --Extreme Style, Precise Geometrics, Maximum function, UrbanEdge™--The True Essence Of Understated Modernism In the Kitchen

Julien Home Refinements introduces its newest collection of kitchen sinks, UrbanEdge, to the North American market during K/BIS on May 10, 2022 in Las Vegas, NV. From the chic homes in Paris and Milan, to the stylized lofts above Manhattan and landmark moderns in the hills of Hollywood, one thing remains constant - great design. And when it comes to gathering and entertaining with friends and family, the kitchen continues to become the integral element of architecture that demands style, function and durability. The kitchen sink is its core.

Quebec City, Canada (PRWEB) May 31, 2021 -- The UrbanEdge, by Julien Home Refinements represents the true essence of understated modernism in the kitchen. Its crisp and exact lines articulate the splendor of hand crafted stainless steel, unlike any other kitchen sink. Each geometrically shaped bowl, drainboard, and worktop surface has precision and detail only found in a Julien sink.

“When we introduced this very angular and modern sink to our customers in Europe, the reaction was extremely positive. We knew then, that when the timing was right, the UrbanEdge would come to America and be a success,” says Lloyd LeBlanc, Director of Residential Division, Julien Home Refinements. “We are extremely excited about the debut at K/BIS this year and can’t wait to see the reactions from our dealers,” continues Mr. LeBlanc.

The UrbanEdge Collection consists of a diverse selection of undermount sinks ranging in size from 13” x 17” to double bowl sinks up to 36” x 17”; Farmhouse Sinks, Worktop Sinks, as well as the Kitchen Island. There are 17 models offered in this collection and all main bowl depths are a practical 10” deep and the back ledge is wider than most sinks so that there is generous space to install faucets and several accessories without having to crowd the workspace. Julien’s unique and highly innovative features such as,
tilt-out drawers, integrated drainboards, and coordinating accessories are also included with several of the UrbanEdge sinks. And any Julien sink can be customized to specific dimensions and configurations.

“Architects and designers continue to be impressed and thrilled with our ability to fabricate sinks and countertops to their specific design and project requirements. But even more so, they are in awe at the detail and quality in our finish work, and make a point to let us know,” adds Céline Marcotte, Communications Manager, Julien Home Refinements.

Julien’s manufacturing process has also given them a reputation as “Masters of Stainless Steel Fabrication.” Although many other companies claim to make fine stainless steel sinks, most of their sinks are “stamped” and not scored, cut and formed into sculptured bowls – and not many can boast that they only use high-quality, 16-gauge stainless steel that is hand welded and polished. These high-grade materials and attention to detail provide unparalleled distinction in design and functionality; the result is easy-maintenance, long-term value and an uncompromising quality. Every sink by Julien comes with a lifetime guarantee.

For almost sixty years, JULIEN® has been designing and installing kitchens for five-star resorts, universities, casinos, restaurants and sport stadiums around the world. Recognized for its high-quality professional grade commercial kitchen equipment, JULIEN is an acclaimed leader in stainless steel fabrication. JULIEN Home Refinements™ division is focused on residential products. Their philosophy is centered on five principals: design, functionality, uniqueness, quality and customization. With a 170,000 square foot production facility in Quebec City, JULIEN Inc. has over 400 employees, including engineers, computer specialists, designers, technicians, welders, and polishers. JULIEN products are sold in Canada, the United States, the Caribbean, Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. For more information please visit www.julien.ca or call (800) 461-3377.

Local Company Nourishes Tidal Wave of Myrtle Beach Condos and Preconstruction

New Resorts LLC, Myrtle Beach’s number one internet source of oceanfront renovation and preconstruction condos announces the record-breaking sellout of three new oceanfront/ocean-view resorts, featuring some 660 units valued at more than $220,000,000.

Myrtle Beach, SC (PRWEB) May 31, 2021 -- With the release of Prince Resort @ The Cherry Grove Pier, and the Bayview and Avalon Resorts in downtown Myrtle Beach, the response of condominium buyers has been overwhelming and unprecedented. In addition, New Resorts is in the planning stages with many of its development partners on some of the largest condo developments in the Grand Strand. They are also marketing Carolina Beach condos in North Carolina, (Park Place) as well as a Turks and Caicos Islands project.

David O’Connell, of New Resorts, is Myrtle Beach’s leading expert in the oceanfront preconstruction market, and indicates that the company presently has more than six hundred million dollars of resort property in various stages of sales, planning, preconstruction and development.

New Resorts is brought in by developers to sell 90 percent of the units in order to meet lending requirements. By pre-selling enough units to cover most of the developer’s land and construction costs, it ensures the lenders a level of comfort, and provides the buyers with special preconstruction pricing. Myrtle Beach is one of the country’s best family vacation spots. With about 13.5 million people visiting the Grand Strand every year, the strong economy and growing popularity of Myrtle Beach as a tourist destination contributes to the strong demand for oceanfront condos as well as investment properties.

David came to Myrtle Beach eight years ago and quickly became number one for promoting oceanfront preconstruction condominiums. He has always had a knack for staying ahead of the curve. With early purchases of internet domain names like PreconstructionCondos.com, NewResorts.com, InvestmentCondos.com, OceanfrontRealEstate.com, and a host of others, O’Connell knew that his combination of oceanfront real estate business, preconstruction real estate sales, and internet savvy would keep him busy for many years to come. He is always looking at things from a marketing prospective.

Douglas Clayton of Real Estate 1031 Exchange Company in Winston-Salem NC, and O’Connell’s business partner, says that he has never met a person with as many successful real estate projects going on at the same time.

O’Connell explains, “I have been extremely lucky to have as many smart & trustworthy partners as I have in my 15-plus partnerships. Each partner specializes in just one or two things and because of my relationships, I have an open invitation for myself as well as my investors to participate. I have partners that buy, develop and sell: Shopping Centers, Large Residential Apartments, Medical Facilities, and High-rise Oceanfront Resorts; as well as Golf Course and Large Residential Developments. I have found by helping people invest into real estate projects they wouldn’t normally have access to, it has diversified my clients as well as my own real estate portfolio.“

Lane Yates of Yates Development in Salisbury NC is another of David’s close associates. “I met David many years ago and finally found a deal that we could both participate in called The Salisbury Village, a 26 acre commercial track at the corner of Jake Alexander Blvd and Route 150, in Salisbury.” Yates continues; “David seems to have this way of placing the right investors with the right real estate investment projects (A Deal Match-Maker). He also is building the most dynamic resort condo sales and marketing machines in the southeast and the Caribbean. David envisions the kind of resorts and developments his buyers & investors would be most attracted to, and then finds the oceanfront land to develop those projects. He’s one of those guys you just want to do a deal with.”

Yates developed an interest in Turks and Caicos real estate, and with O’Connell, is embarking on a 60 acre oceanfront/bayfront project called Sailview Resort. The project will be ready for preconstruction release in the summer of 2005. O’Connell says that Lane researches a deal 20 different ways backwards and forward, and they compliment each other’s talents, which makes a great team.

David also targets motel owners that have a great piece of land, under a less efficient hotel or motel. Then he creates a vision that a hotel/motel operator sees as a win-win proposition. The operator ends up renting out a brand new oceanfront high-rise resort with state-of-the-art facilities, and the buyer is pleased with a discounted preconstruction price and an elegant new condominium to either rent or sell.

“There is definitely going to be a shortage of oceanfront land in the not so distant future.”, predicts O’Connell. ”Investors are buying preconstruction condos with the intent of either selling them at completion or holding on to them and renting them out to vacationers.”

With no limit yet in sight to the many preconstruction opportunities, New Resorts will continue to be the top source for investors and beach-lovers wanting to buy new condos in Myrtle Beach, the North Carolina Beaches, and even internationally.

Complete Garage Door, Dallas/Fort Worth Texas Premier Garage Door Company, Blowing away the Competition

Complete Garage Door of DFW, Texas, is blowing away the competition with quality service, and affordable prices.

(PRWEB) May 30, 2021 -- Complete garage Door opened it's doors in August of 1997. It has since grown into one of the most respected garage door companies in the Dallas/fort Worth area. Their highly trained, qualified technicians, along with their outstanding customer support, and low prices, are what separate them from the competition. As the owner of the company explains "I've worked for a lot of the larger garage door companies in the Dallas/Fort worth area over the years, and could never get used to the fact that they over-charge for everything. Some of them don't honor their warranties, and are only out to make a dollar. If people knew how much springs, rollers, and other parts really cost, they would be outraged at what they are being charged. I decided back in 1997 that I could offer customers the same products and warranties that larger companies offered, for a much lower price. We keep our advertising costs low, and pass this savings on to the customer. Our Customer Reviews speak for themselves."

Along with their low prices, Complete Garage Door offers a Best Price Guarantee. If you receive a lower bid from any other company, they will beat that price! How's that for Customer Service?

Arlington, TX (PRWEB) May 30, 2021 -- When Westwood College wanted to move their Euless, Texas campus they chose Mercantile Partners and Bob Moore Construction to deliver an exciting new 44,000 SF facility.

Design+Build Firm Makes it Easy To Finally have That Patio or Roofdeck To Enjoy this Season

If you have been meaning to turn your backyard into that sanctuary of relaxation or an outdoor room to enjoy for all of the celebrations you will have this season, it’s not too late. ehr-lüm, a design+build firm in Evanston specializing in thoughtful backyard designs and architecture is making the process easier and more affordable.

(PRWEB) May 28, 2021 -- If you have been meaning to turn your backyard into that sanctuary of relaxation or an outdoor room to enjoy for all of the celebrations you will have this season, it’s not too late. ehr-lüm, a design+build firm in Evanston, specializing in meticulously planned interior and exterior spaces, designs and architecture is making the process easier and more affordable.

Gregg Brazel, owner of ehr-lüm, has created several original patio designs featuring pergolas, benches, planters, and water features to suit any architectural genre and lifestyle. These stock designs are then modified to suit your home and preferences. “A master plan is required for the project to be integrated, beautiful, and highly functional - lack of an overall plan is the biggest mistake in any building project. Even if you don’t have the budget for the entire scope immediately, you should develop a comprehensive plan and phase the construction to meet the constraints,” Brazel says. “Some people see design as an added expense, but if it’s planned well, it saves a lot of money in the long run as there are fewer mistakes, and no comparison in the quality and feel of the finished space.”

Brazel has created amazing spaces on rooftops in Chicago where a backyard may not be available, giving the owners extra space to entertain or simply relax. ehr-lüm works with different landscape designers and garden shops to handle the plant materials, integrating their designs with his to create a comprehensive plan, blending functionality, architecture, and landscapes. Brazel, a graduate of Purdue University, ties his engineering background in with his interest in nature, design, art, and architecture, as well as a commitment to working with ‘green’ building techniques and materials that are earth friendly, unique, and beautiful.

In addition to outdoor projects, ehr-lüm also has a design studio and full service woodshop in Evanston to produce custom designed media centers, furniture, workstations, and other interior projects. ehr-lüm is located at 725 Washington in Evanston and Gregg can be reached for a design consultation by calling 847.733.0644.

Custom Manufactured Home Builder Yankee Barn Homes Wins Prestigious Cornerstone Awards

Seven custom manufactured post and beam homes recognized for excellence at the 2005 HBRANH Awards Banquet

Grantham, NH (PRWEB) May 27, 2021 --Yankee Barn Homes of Grantham NH, which designs and builds custom manufactured barn-style homes, was recognized for excellence in home building by the Home Builders & Remodelers Association of NH (HBRANH) at their annual awards banquet. Seven Yankee Barn homes received awards, including two gold medals, three silver medals, and two bronze medal winners.


The Cornerstone awards are based on "how well a design demonstrates a comprehensive approach to home building." Homes are judged on the quality of the construction, function of the overall layout of the home, plot planning, and architectural details.

Seven Yankee Barn Homes were recognized in New Home Construction categories, including:

Gold Medal – Single Family–Detached $400,000–$500,000. This category winner is a barn-style post and beam manufactured home built in Brewster, MA. The home is a gambrel style barn with views from every room and which incorporates a flowing, circular floor plan that lets the homeowners and guests enjoy indoor and outdoor living.

Gold Medal – Single Family–Detached $100,000–$200,000. This category winner is a post and beam manufactured home built in Sharon, CT with all the character of a full-sized post and beam home but in much smaller guest cottage version.

Silver Medal – Single Family–Detached $500,000–$750,000. This silver medal winning Yankee Barn home, located in Walpole, ME, is a stone's throw away from the ocean and nestled into the trees of Maine, and elicits lots of country home charm. The homeowners chose bright colors in this open post and beam home to create warmth and spaciousness in every room.

Silver Medal – Single Family–Detached $300,000–$400,000. This post and beam home in Hanover, NH has a classic New England rambling architecture and incorporates an antique cape that was already on the property into the design. The open floor plan of the main post and beam frame combines beautifully with the antique post and beam of the cape.

Silver Medal – Model Home more than $200,000. The Brandywine Creek House in West Chester, PA is a model home designed to blend into the local Pennsylvania architecture. The post and beam frame is fully utilized in this farmhouse style barn home.

Bronze Medal – Single Family–Detached $750,000–$1,000,000. This bronze medal winning post and beam manufactured home, located in Kempton, PA incorporates a sugarhouse loft with ample living space and a small balcony that overlooks a nearby bird sanctuary.

Bronze Medal – Single Family–Detached $500,000–$750,000. This bronze medal winning design located in Boyds, MD has a traditional farmhouse exterior and wrap around porch that give way to a post and beam structure that takes full advantage of views and the surrounding country landscape.

About Yankee Barn Homes:
Since 1969, Yankee Barn Homes has been designing and building custom manufactured homes with post and beam frames. Over one thousand Yankee Barns stand with no two exactly alike across the United States and Europe. Each Yankee Barn home starts with the vision of the homeowner and is custom-designed and hand-crafted one at a time to be a home of distinction.

American Clay Earth Plaster Showcases Premiere U.S. - Based Clay Plaster Instructional Video at PCBC/2005

American Clay Earth Plaster, the natural finish for interior walls and ceilings, is proud to showcase the premiere U.S.-based clay plaster instructional video at the PCBC/2005, May 31-June 3, 2005, at Moscone Center in San Francisco, Booth #5221.

Albuquerque, NM (PRWEB) May 27, 2021 -- American Clay Earth Plaster, the natural finish for interior walls and ceilings, is proud to showcase the premiere U.S.-based clay plaster instructional video at the PCBC/2005, May 31-June 3, 2005, at Moscone Center in San Francisco, Booth #5221. The video is produced by American Clay who last year won the Outstanding New Green Product Award from 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.

“Since last year’s visit to PCBC, 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 200% 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 PCBC show: it’s incredibly well thought out and attended and 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 to their 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.

HellermannTyton Partners with Cormant Technologies to Deliver a Portable Solution for the Management of IT Infrastructure

HellermannTyton has partnered with Cormant Technologies to develop a unique, intelligent infrastructure management (IIM) system using portable, barcode identification technology.

Northampton UK (PRWEB) May 27, 2021 -- HellermannTyton has partnered with Cormant Technologies to develop a unique, intelligent infrastructure management (IIM) system using portable, barcode identification technology. The system is available now and integrates HellermannTyton’s new iD series of Category 5e and Category 6 bar-coded products with a version of Cormant’s CableSolve Connectivity and Infrastructure Management Software. The portability of the HellermannTyton iD system gives users the flexibility to manage and document network connectivity and moves, adds and changes (MACs) both on or off site, using handheld Pocket PCs with barcode scanners.

The new iD series from HellermannTyton incorporates Category 5e and Category 6 patch panels, patch cords and faceplates, each labelled with a unique barcode designed for use with Cormant’s CableSolve software.

CableSolve uses a Pocket PC with an integrated barcode scanner, to read the iD barcode and identify the hardware’s location and end-to-end connectivity within the network infrastructure. The software is capable of managing the entire physical infrastructure from the structured cabling through to switches, routers, outlets, PCs and telephones.

“Using the CableSolve powerful portable software platform, users have complete management of their end-to-end cabling and network infrastructure,” explains David Gagel, Sales and Marketing Director, HellermannTyton. Gagel continues: “The barcode on the iD connectivity components and other network assets such as computers, printers, and telephones, make traceability easy and allows the IT manager freedom to view their entire network when and where they need it.”

The HellermannTyton iD/CableSolve IIM system allows an IT manager to select any port within the network and view connectivity components (patch panel outlets, patch cords, etc.). They can also view active equipment, information on the hardware platform and any software installed on it, view floor plan locations of all equipment and power supply connections to that equipment. iD active patching solutions will also be introduced later in the year.

Paul Goodison, CEO, Cormant Technologies Inc. comments: “We’re pleased to be working exclusively on the IIM product with HellermannTyton as a leader in the Structured Cabling Market. iD and CableSolve offer a new approach to IIM which delivers real value for money along with portability, accuracy and flexibility in to the hands of the IT Manager.”

Local Construction Company Steps In

A.N.T. Construction helps to improve community through the restoration and renovation of Frederick’s South End at 200 South Market Street

Frederick, MD (PRWEB) May 27, 2021 -- Tom Henning, president of A.N.T. Construction, has played a key role in the restoration of 200 S. Market St. since the process began last summer. As a sub-contractor on site responsible for the demolition, securing, and framing of the deteriorating structure, Mr. Henning’s exemplary commitment to the project has now landed him the role of general contractor for the job.

The building’s developer, Abby Laughlin purchased this building in early 2004. Laughlin’s original intentions included placing a commercial entity on the building’s street level, and introducing six elegant apartments on the second and third floors. Since completion of the street level space in February 2005, Zest restaurant moved from their Monrovia location to serve American cuisine in downtown Frederick.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, restoration and renovation of the second and third floors were forced to come to a halt. However, with A.N.T. Construction now operating as general contractor, building is scheduled to resume next month.

For additional information about the restoration of 200 South Market Street, including photographs of the process, visit www.antconstruction.com or email e-mail protected from spam bots.

Tom Henning has over 26 years of experience in the field of construction. He began his apprenticeship in 1978, where he was taught by old time craftsman who still produced their own field fabrications to include manufacturing their own rafters, roofs, stairs, and moldings for interior and exterior application. They believed that speed was not an alternative to quality.

Myrtle Beach Real Estate Company Sells $125,000,000 in Thirty Days

http://www.oceaninvestments.com[Myrtle Beach Real Estate] marketing trend setters continue breaking records.

(PRWEB) May 26, 2021 -- http://www.hoffmangroupinc.com[The Hoffman Group, Inc., Myrtle Beach’s most prolific oceanfront http://www.oceaninvestments.com[preconstruction condos and renovation condos sales and marketing company announced the record-breaking sellout of three oceanfront hotel conversion properties featuring some 700 units valued at more than $125,000,000 in a 30 day period.

The Monterey Bay Suites Resort, the Landmark Hotel and the Caribbean Suites Resort were offered in pre-reservation simultaneously. The buyer response was blinding and unprecedented.

At the same time the company is presently closing some 1,000 Myrtle Beach condos sold in preconstruction over the past several months. Avista Oceanfront Condos Resort Phase 1 and Phase 2, Pinnacle Oceanfront Condos Resort, Schooner Oceanfront Condos Resort, Boardwalk Oceanfront Condos Resort and Ocean Reef Oceanfront Condos Resort are among the properties now closing.

Company President, David Hoffman indicated that the company presently has more than $500,000,000 in sales in various stages of development. Other properties include The Island Oceanfront Condos Resort, Dunes Village Oceanfront Condos Resort Phase 1, Dunes Village Oceanfront Condos Resort Phase 2, Sandy Beach Oceanfront Condos Resort Phase 2, Grand Atlantic Oceanfront Condos Resort, Ocean Reef Oceanfront Condos Resort Phase 2 and Seaside Oceanfront Condos Resort.

The Hoffman Group assures developers it will sell 80 percent of the units to meet lending requirements. Presales help ensure the venture's success and give developers the financial means to pursue the projects. "That's one of our commitments to developers - that we do sell it out," Tim Horton said. "Myrtle Beach is one of the most aggressive rental markets. Myrtle Beach is one of the most thriving, vibrant markets for vacationers." About 13.5 million people visit the Grand Strand annually. The strong economy and growing popularity of Myrtle Beach as a tourist destination contribute to the condos' brisk sales, experts say.

With advertisements in publications including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and N.C. newspapers in Charlotte and Raleigh, investors are buying most of the condos with the intent of renting them to vacationers, Horton said.

David Hoffman is an innovator. He looks at old things in new ways… like leading his oceanfront motel operator clients to become among the elite high-end Myrtle Beach Resort operators. How does he do that? Simple. By building one of the most dynamic resort condos sales and marketing machines in the southeast, envisioning the kinds of resorts his buyers would be most attracted to, then finding the oceanfront land to develop those ventures. Only one problem. There is no more oceanfront land. No problem for an innovator. Hoffman simply targets motel operators that control quality pieces of land with existing older, less efficient properties that in his opinion, "simply need to be cleared away." Then he sells that vision to his motel operator-clients who ultimately end up controlling the lion's share of rental income units within the new, state-of-the-art resorts and presto-chango - you have a burgeoning market of dynamic new developments with all of the bells and whistles!

Instead of a tired old motel in constant need of repair, struggling to compete with the big players and new properties, the new prestigious resort operator has zero debt, zero maintenance, zero property taxes (except for the commercial areas) and an opportunity for an annuity-like income that continues year after year in the form of management fee profits.

New York, NY (PRWEB) May 26, 2021 -- Multi Capital Group’s Eli Verschleiser announced today that Multi Capital executives arranged and closed an 18 month loan facility for $32 million in connection with their client's purchase of 137-141 Duane St., a.k.a. 92 Thomas St. in the TriBeCa neighborhood of New York City.

Multi Capital was able to move with incredible speed, getting the lender to close the transaction within three weeks of bringing the lender to the deal.

The property located in the most desirable neighborhoods of NYC is currently a six-story building occupied on the lower level by Megu, a Japanese cuisine restaurant. The borrower intends to immediately convert the building from a luxury rental building to condominiums. The project's total square footage is approximately 74,000 square feet.

“For the most part, everything’s converted, and developers are moving east to old office buildings around City Hall Park and into the North-West corridor, west of Hudson street, where some vacant space still lingers un-marketed,” says Fred, a real estate investment banker at Multi Capital Group.

Multi Capitals’ client for this transaction has been a leading multi-family / office building owner and operator for over 30 years. The developer has a proven track record of successfully developing and repositioning properties in all of the Tri-State markets. The client has extensive experience with all aspects of multi-family real estate including: land assemblage and planning, construction rehabilitation and residential condominium conversions. The developer owns and/or manages more than 5,000,000 SF of real estate in the New York Tri-State region.

Vincent Nicoletta, Esq. from Greenberg Nicoletta & Stein LLP represented the developer and James Hausman, Esq. from Meister Seelig & Fein LLP represented the lender in the transaction.

Multi Capital Group (www.Multi-Capital.com) is a national Real Estate Investment Banking firm prominent in debt and equity placement, and commercial and residential loan sales. Its clients include some of the most active developers and institutions both nationally and in the New York metropolitan area.

Building Owners and Managers Battling Mold Gain New Weapons at M6 Conference

M6: Mold, Moisture, Misery, Money, and Myth - Plus Management is a carefully crafted program providing architects, developers, building designers, building managers, builders, and building material manufacturers with the knowledge and resources to not only successfully manage a catastrophic mold event, but to also implement the latest tools and protocols for prevention.

Exton, PA (PRWEB) May 26, 2021 -- Despite growing health concerns, litigation, and building shut-downs due to mold-contamination, many owners and facility managers confess that they are inadequately prepared to deal with a mold outbreak.

M6: Mold, Moisture, Misery, Money, and Myth - Plus Management is a carefully crafted program providing architects, developers, building designers, building managers, builders, and building material manufacturers with the knowledge and resources to not only successfully manage a catastrophic mold event, but to also implement the latest tools and protocols for prevention.

“Mold is a problem, whether you think it is real or not; ask any attorney,” explains Barry Hardman, M6 conference director and vice-chairman of the Building Environment and Thermal Envelope Council of the National Institute of Building Sciences. In addition to lawsuits with awards in the millions, mold causes over $2.5 billon a year in insurance claims.

Not only can the costs of remediation be astronomical but, “The biggest hazard with your mold remediation project...could be your contractor. In an industry that currently lacks regulations and license requirements, inadequate/unsafe equipment, temporary unskilled workforce, insufficient liability insurance are just some of the issues that building owners and managers need to know about when selecting their mold remediation contractor," according to M6 speaker Steve Silicato, CIE, REM, of MARCOR Remediation, Inc.

At M6, building professionals will hear about the latest initiatives and lessons learned from organizations that are leading the pack in mold remediation meeting Environmental Protection Association (EPA) Guidelines and prevention innovations for new construction, existing buildings, and renovation.

M6 walks attendees, step-by step, through a single scenario of a multi-use building in which there are two moisture events – one caused by the building’s design and one caused by leakage from a pipe.

Here’s a sample of the program content:

- Introduction to Protocols at Time of Discovery of Mold
- Using Special Tools– Application of Diverse Technologies to Identify Areas of Moisture in a Building Envelope
- The Appropriate Use of Mold Analysis Data: Discriminating
Fact From Fiction
- The Creation of a Professional Remediation Plan
- Prevention – What is a Water Intrusion Management Program (WIMP)?
- What Building Science Can and Cannot Do for You

M6 is a must for facility managers, mold remediators, attorneys, insurance companies, financial institutions, building inspectors, health industry specialists, architects and engineers, contractors, and industrial hygienists who are serious about reducing their mold-related costs and liability with quick and effective response strategies and thorough prevention methods. ‘We are fortunate to have an incredible group of industry leaders who have agreed to share their experience” notes Hardman.

Esthetic Accents Takes Its Show on the Road - Mass-Customized Architectural Stained Glass Makes Big Impact at National Events

New company makes big impression at two Las Vegas trade shows - Esthetic Accents, a Portland, Oregon-based manufacturer and seller of architectural stained glass, shattered the industry the industry’s status quo last week at the Hospitality Design 2005 Expo and the 2005 Kitchen/Bath Industry Show, both held this year in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Portland, OR (PRWEB) May 25, 2021 -- Esthetic Accents, a Portland, Oregon-based manufacturer and seller of architectural stained glass, shattered the industry the industry’s status quo last week at the Hospitality Design 2005 Expo and the 2005 Kitchen/Bath Industry Show, both held this year in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Making a strong impression on the attendees at the trade shows as well as the industry media present there, the new company was one of four singled out for special coverage by Las Vegas television station Fox 5 for an in-studio visit. The segment featured new products that add color to home improvement projects without requiring extensive renovations. The products were selected from more than 1000 vendors with booths at KB2005.

Visitors to the Esthetic Accents booth were impressed by the versatility and durability the company’s custom stained glass products and were surprised by the line’s affordability. The Portland-based firm has created and designed an extremely durable form of stained glass that can safely be used in windows, doors, sidelights, shower and hot tub enclosures, cabinetry, gates, balcony and stair railings; it be incorporated into walls, partitions and casework. Because each piece is a custom design, themes can be continued throughout entire rooms and structures, matching doors and cabinets, sidelights and windows, or garage doors with front gates.

EAofferings allow much more design freedom than is possible with either artisan stained glass or mass produced design elements. Most often, artisan stained glass creates designs using stock bevels and bevel clusters that require that the design be developed around the bevels. However, Esthetic Accents is able to create custom bevels, both clear and colored, eliminating any limits on the design process.

Visitors to the EA booths represented some of the leaders in the commercial, design, hospitality, and home building industries. Among those particularly impressed by the products on display at the EA booths were representatives for Applebees, The Marriot Group, and Architectural Digest. “Wow! We’ve been looking for something like this for more than two years,” said one of the specifiers for a leading national restaurant chain. “We want to match motif for over 100 restaurants and this product makes it possible.”

According to Mary Spear, co-founder and CEO of Esthetic Accents, “We have traveled the world seeking and developing the manufacturing process that allows our unique approach to the marketplace. The technology is now available to take custom architectural stained glass solutions to a new level – and at extremely affordable prices. No one else is doing what we’re doing”

About Esthetic Accents
Esthetic Accents design professionals combine personalized service and the convenience of the Internet to provide excellent customer service nation-wide. Their online showroom and design center, toll free number and knowledgeable design staff make navigating through the design process straightforward and enjoyable. Esthetic Accents leverages the power of the Internet by utilizing PRWeb’s Online Visibility Engine(TM), making it easier for interested parties to learn about EA's breakthrough custom architectural stained glass technology and innovative product line as their innovations are released.

BMJ Mold and Engineering Announces Premium Extended Warranty

BMJ Mold and Engineering, a 37 Year old Kokomo, IN, plastic injection molding company, announces new plan to insure against mold repair costs in the future.

Kokomo, IN (PRWEB) May 25, 2021 -- BMJ Mold and Engineering has announced a new way to control costs associated with plastic injection molding. The company, through innovative engineering, has pioneered a method of providing plastic molders an extended warranty program that guarantees no additional mold costs while using a BMJ mold. Company founder and CEO, Mike Eikenberry adds, “Mold repair has always plagued companies because it is a variable cost. We have essentially made that a fixed cost under the BMJ program.”

BMJ will offer the extended warranty program on any mold it designs and builds, and in some cases, on molds it rebuilds. “There are several plans available.” says Eikenberry. “Some allow for scheduled preventive maintenance and/or repair as needed. Alternatives are to simply send the customer the required details and instructions for proper mold maintenance and diagrams for in-house repair.”

This dramatic step can be taken by the 37-year-old Kokomo, Indiana, company because as Eikenberry points out, “All molds built by BMJ are designed to be easily repaired and maintained. It is all in the construction. High wear and/or weak steel areas are inserted with easy to remove and replace high quality steel inserts. Each inserted area has a specified location and identification indicated on location maps provided with the mold. Each insert is constructed in such a way as to make it impossible to install in the wrong place or incorrect orientation. Even ejector pins are identified in the same manner resulting in simplified replacement.”

BMJ’s Premium Extended Warranty plan also allows for work to be sub-let to a local tool shop previously approved by the customer and BMJ, or molds can be shipped to BMJ for warranty service. “It’s simple,” says Eikenberry, “whatever works best for the customer.” The Premium Extended Warranty Program at BJM Mold and Engineering is effective immediately.

AEC Professionals Discover the Sustainable Rewards of Concrete at NRMCA Workshops

The surging demand for green and sustainable buildings and infrastructure requires an evolution in the building materials you select and how you use them. The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association – Workshops at Ecobuild America 2005, will demonstrate how innovative concrete building systems and technologies, such as pervious concrete pavement and insulating concrete form, provide an array of environmental and economic building solutions.

Exton, PA (PRWEB) May 26, 2021 -- The surging demand for green and sustainable buildings and infrastructure requires an evolution in the building materials you select and how you use them. The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association – Workshops at Ecobuild America 2005, will demonstrate how innovative concrete building systems and technologies, such as pervious concrete pavement and insulating concrete form, provide an array of environmental and economic building solutions.

NRMCA, recognized as one of the construction industry’s leading advocates for sustainable building practices, will present a carefully crafted program of workshops arming facility owners, architects, engineers, developers, contractors, and environmental consultants with the knowledge and resources required to leverage the dramatic, sustainable advantages of concrete.

At the NRMCA Worskshops, building professionals will discover the latest advances in concrete and its use in stormwater runoff mitigation and structural wall systems to minimize the environmental impact of construction and maximize points in the LEED Green Building Rating System.

“The use of pervious pavement is considered a best management practice (BMP) by the EPA and is a ‘point obtaining’ solution to reducing stormwater runoff and improving water quality in the LEED Green Building Rating System. Pervious solutions also save money in numerous ways including reduced requirements for expensive drainage systems and detention ponds, and allow for greater site utilization by the owner,” explains Dan Huffman, NRMCA National Resource Director.

Mr. Huffman adds, “Innovations in tilt-up wall construction, forming, concrete floor and roofing systems, can significantly increase energy efficiency and increase the speed of construction – a major cost consideration. The improved wall and roofing systems increase effective R-value and results in substantially lower energy bills and increased occupant comfort.”

The program content includes:

- When It Rains, It Drains: An Introduction to Pervious Concrete Pavement

This is a free session for all Ecobuild America attendees.

Registered with the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the following workshops, offered for a nominal fee, are part of NRMCA’s Continuing Education Series and provide CEU credits in all professional disciplines:

- Maximizing LEED Points with Concrete
- Reducing Storm Water Runoff with Pervious Concrete
- Energy Performance of Concrete Building Systems

The NRMCA Workshops are a must for architectural, engineering and construction professionals who want to harness the power of concrete to maximize sustainability and LEED points on their projects.. An added benefit to the program is NRMCA’s strategic co-location with the Sustainable Buildings Industry Council’s (SBIC’s) Ecobuild America June 20 -23 which explores the breadth of commercial, industrial, institutional and residential green building techniques, construction products, renewable energy resources, sustainable design and ecological planning processes, with particular emphasis on the lifecycle of the built environment.

Switch to Direct Drive Air Compressor System Increases Production Time by 30-40%

Improved reliability during 12-hour shifts keeps woodworking tools humming to increase production of doors, moldings, stair parts and more.

(PRWEB) May 24, 2021 -- When the challenge for any successful manufacturer is keeping up with demand, all industrial equipment must operate at maximum potential in order to capitalize fully on sales opportunities. For this reason, plant engineers and operations managers within the burgeoning wood-products industry are increasingly turning to direct-drive electric air compressors to power their tools for longer durations with greater reliability.

Such is the case for Bayer Built Woodworks, Inc. of Belgrade, Minnesota¾a 2-step manufacturer and distributor of millwork, selling to almost 900 building-product retailers in six states. The company's wood offerings include pre-hung interior and exterior doors, wood moldings, stair parts, architectural columns and shelving, as well as storage and entry systems.

"Our building processes are automated, and we have an air compressor on each of four separate production lines to supply the air cylinders that position woodworking tools such as routers and saws" says Cory Bayer, maintenance team leader. "We also use air to power our staplers and nail guns, and we have a 40-horsepower compressor that runs the paint spray guns and air sanders in the pre-finish shop."

Yet, this high demand for air finally overtaxed the factory's existing compressors.

"We used to use regular piston compressors when our volume was less, so it didn't matter that they could only run 60-70% of the time," recalls Bayer. "But as our business grew we needed an http://www.palatek.com [air compressor system that would run all the time, for up to 12 hours a day. So we switched over to the Sullivan-Palatek screw-type compressors because they are more heavy duty and reliable enough to run the long hours that we needed."

Sullivan-Palatek, of Michigan City, Indiana, manufacturers a line of direct-drive rotary-screw air compressor systems that allow woodworking industries to profit from greater reliability and energy savings in their pressurized-air operations. The increased reliability of this design stems from the use of larger air-end assemblies, which results in slower turning rotors that yield extended service life and higher pressure using lower horsepower. Extra efficiency results from use of a direct-drive rotary screw that eliminates unnecessary moving parts such as belts, gears and pulleys—thus reducing the parasitic losses attributed to belts (4-8% loss) and gears (3-5%).

“I can't remember when we've ever had a Sullivan-Palatek unit break down," notes Bayer. "I would definitely recommend the use of these direct drive compressors to other woodworking operations."

Established in 1984, Sullivan-Palatek manufactures industrial equipment such as electric and diesel driven high performance rotary screw air compressors, along with a complete line of accessory items that include air dryers, filters, remediation systems and construction air tools.

Today’s Competitive Investment Sales Market – Unlocking the Value

Commercial Real Estate Investment Bank Pacific Security Capital defines how to unlock the value in today’s competitive investment sales market.

Beaverton, OR (PRWEB) May 24, 2021 -- http://www.pacificsecuritycapital.com - Pacific Security Capital, a leading commercial real estate investment bank, focuses on creating value in today’s competitive investment sales market and identifies valuable strategies to follow to achieve success in investments.

Mike Myatt, executive managing director, Pacific Security Capital shares “there is little doubt that we are currently experiencing one of the most heated sellers markets in recent history.” Myatt continues, “today’s investment sales market has been reduced to an e-bay like environment where retail brokerage houses simply put an asset up for auction and wait for the buyers to circle like hungry sharks.”

Many will point to the increased flow of funds in the commercial capital markets creating a demand-side frenzy that is causing a compression in cap rates and escalating prices to all time highs as justifying current market tactics. Myatt adds that, “while there is an element of truth surrounding the logic contained in the previous sentence, I believe it is simply easier for many buyers to blame the market and follow the herd rather than adapt their acquisitions plan.”

The follow the herd mentality is evidenced by the fact that many institutional buyers like REIT’s, TIC syndicators or foreign investors seem content to participate in the madness rather than seek alternate investment sales strategies. The need to place funds seems to be taking precedence over making good investment decisions for many in today’s market.

The real opportunities in today’s investment sales market are not found by following the herd mentality but can be found in the application of any of the following strategies:
1. “Off-market” transactions: Seek out assets that are not listed by retail brokerage firms. Hire an investment bank to approach principal owners on a direct basis negotiating with them on assets that are not publicly for sale.
2. Change Market Focus: Focus your acquisition strategies on secondary and tertiary markets where there will be less competition for assets. Additionally stay out of the hot markets and look toward markets recovering from downturns.
3. Change Asset Class Focus: Rather than chasing multifamily and retail properties look for opportunities in office, hospitality and industrial asset classes.
4. Stay Away from Traditional Trophy Assets: If you must buy big look for opportunistic plays that have higher vacancies, lease roll-over risks, of financing issues. An asset doesn’t need to be located in New York, Chicago or Los Angeles or be fully leased to constitute a trophy designation.
5. Look for Joint Venture or Recapitalization Opportunities: Many of the best investment opportunities in today’s market are not found in out-right acquisitions. Explore joint ventures that will allow you to co-invest with existing owners of assets in a fashion that will allow them to free up trapped equity or fund new developments.
6. Change Your Acquisition Process: Traditional acquisition time frames that were competitive 12 months ago will leave you on the outside looking in with today’s frothy market conditions. Be willing to make unsolicited offers, put up meaningful earnest money deposits and close quickly.

Miami Developer Adds to Portfolio in the City of the Future

Is Park West Miami's next frontier?

Miami, FL (PRWEB) May 23, 2021 -- Leviev Boymelgreen has acquired another property in the Park West area of Downtown Miami. “This landscape of old warehouses and semi-abandoned buildings is changing face,” said veteran commercial broker Jeff Cohen of Esslinger-Wooten- Maxwell, who handled the $2,050,000 transaction. “Three years ago few would have dared to venture there at night, some even referred to it as the combat zone,” Cohen said. But like with so many other areas of this booming city, things have radically changed.

“Today there is no lack of interest in property in Park West, once called Overtown,” Cohen said. Boymelgreen, who bought the properties that land banker Hank Sopher had assembled over a three-year period, continues his acquisition strategy and is planning the developments in the district. It all started with the designation of portion of the area as a “24 Hours Entertainment District.” Dirty warehouses are now being turned into successful clubs, gyms and restaurants. To the casual visitor and the nocturnal crowd that populates the once deserted streets the improvements may already seem too good to be true. But people in the know are already betting their money that the future of Park West is much bigger than that.

Jeff Cohen is one of those people. He has been around for thirty years, and he was a major force in the transformation of the once equally derelict South Beach. Cohen has been buying and selling properties in Park West as both a broker and an investor. “The real estate in Park West is today the most important real estate in Miami's downtown area, the city's new frontier,” said Cohen. “Miami is developing into a veritable city of the future, as advanced as Hong-Kong and as trendy as Paris.” In fact, smart technology and state-of-the-art design encompass the new structures in a way never before experienced in the country, at least not in such a massive fashion.

“Smaller lots are also selling,” adds Luigi Mercurio, Cohen's partner at EWM Commercial. “The best advise we can give to the owners is to start getting together and assembling their pieces. Small properties are interesting to developers only if they can be incorporated into a larger project, and the risk is that a developer may decide not to pay top dollars for an unnecessary piece. And once a project is completed, the value of a neighboring smaller lot will never be what it could have been when associated with a large project.”

About Us: EWM Commercial provides specialized real estate services to financial institutions, investors and land owners of every type. Our commercial associates are among the most experienced in the industry, and the Division has extensive experience working with broad range of entities, including large national institutions, developers, and individual investors.

Founded in 1964, Esslinger-Wooten-Maxwell is one of the largest real estate services firms in America, with sales of more than $3 billion in 2004. The full-service firm has 950 associates and staff throughout 13 offices in Miami-Dade and Broward counties, located in Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, Ponce de Leon, South Miami, Pinecrest/Palmetto Bay, Miami Beach, Key Biscayne, Brickell, Plantation, Weston, Southwest Broward and Las Olas.

Unprecedented Support Builds for AEC – Science & Technology and Ecobuild America

More than 80 industry associations and publications involved in the first-year event.

Exton, PA (PRWEB) May 18, 2021 -- The leading professional associations and publications in the Architecture, Engineering, Construction and GIS industries are rallying behind the new AEC – Science & Technology and SBIC’s Ecobuild America Conferences, June 20 – 23, in Orlando, Florida.

“This is a first – to gather all the industries that create the built environment,” noted Helen English, Executive Director, Sustainable Building’s Industry Council (SBIC). “A dozen other conferences and workshops are co-located with these events – what better opportunity do you have to meet with the entire, decision making team?” English observed. “They’ve done a great job of pulling together the players that are the next generation of the eco-movement.”

“They” are the leaders of this collaborative conference effort, RCG Productions, LLC. The company’s three principals set their sights on creating a top-notch, cutting-edge technology showcase for the AEC/GIS industry, and judging by the support they’ve earned already, they’ve hit the mark.

Greg Yoko, Editor-in-Chief, Land Development Today, agrees, “We are thrilled to be participating with these events. The fact that we’re reaching professionals from the many disciplines involved in the land development process is what excited us about becoming affiliated. In fact, Land Development Today felt so strongly about the need and benefit of Ecobuild America that it is sponsoring multiple sessions in June.”

Yoko adds, “The interest and feedback we’ve received from our subscribers has been so positive, it’s convinced us to launch the “Land Development Breakthroughs – Best Practices Conference” this December, which we’ll co-locate with SBIC’s Ecobuild Federal, AEC – Science & Technology Federal and FEDcon events, December 13 - 16, 2005, in Washington DC.”

The RCG principals, Richard Vendola, Chris Gibson and George Borkovich are familiar faces in these industries. Former executives at A/E/C SYSTEMS, they crafted the leading technology forum for the AEC audience until the late 90’s. Since then, their close alliance with key associations, publications, and societies have propelled them to respond to this new market opportunity and launch these premier industry events.

“The overwhelming support we’ve received from so many leading, well-respected organizations underscores what we’ve believed for so long,” reflects Gibson. “The built environment industry is primed for new, innovative events that directly address information technology, sustainable design, green construction, environmental planning and high-performance buildings.”

Vendola observes, “This is a truly remarkable first-year feat. At the rate we’re enrolling publications and associations, we should top 100. No other event we know of, for the audience we serve, has drawn the widespread grass-roots support we are getting.”

Registration for AEC – Science & Technology and SBIC’s Ecobuild America is now in progress at www.ecobuildamerica.com and www.aecst.com. Professional Press members can register for the events by visiting the media section of the website. For additional information call 1-800-996-3863, fax 1-508-790-4750 or visit www.ecobuildamerica.com.

Tiretyte Tire Sealant Saves Albanese Concrete Construction Over $170,000 by Reducing their Flat Tires from 720 to Only 40

Tiretyte tire sealant reduced the flat tires due to tread area punctures from 720 to only 40, for a large concrete company is San Jose, California. Tiretyte also increased the fleets the tire life and fuel economy by maintaining tire air pressure.

(PRWEB) May 21, 2021 -- "Tiretyte tire sealant has saved Albanese Concrete Construction over $170,000 so far by reducing their flat tires from about 720 to only 40 over the past 18 months."

"We started using Tiretyte at Albanese Concrete nearly two years ago. On average, we were experiencing about 40 flat tires per month on our Caterpillar back-hoe tractors, Case and Volvo loaders, CAT fork lifts, etc. The average flat tire service call and repair often took two to three hours or longer, at a cost of hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars. And the additional downtime expenses were eating away at our profits. So we decided to give Tiretyte a try." Neil Kropelnicki, Fleet Mgr. of Albanese Concrete Co.in San Jose, CA, said.

"Initially, we tested Tiretyte on two heavy duty off road fork lift trucks, which went down weekly due to flat tires. During the first three months, Tiretyte reduced our forklift flat repairs to only two, from the 24 to 30 repairs we would have had over the same three months. We were so amazed at those results, we decided to install Tiretyte into our entire fleet of Caterpillar backhoe tractors, large Volvo loaders and other equipment. Once again, the results were more than amazing. Over the next 18 months, Tiretyte reduced our flat repairs to about 40, from what would have been approximately 720 flat repairs over the same period of time. And most of the 40 flats we did get were as a result of damage, which was beyond acceptable tire repair standards. Our tire repair service company even asked us who we had switched our business to, and they also were very impressed with the results." Kropelnicki said.

"Tiretyte has sealed over 95% of the tread area punctures and damage caused by objects ranging in size from 3/16" to 1/2" inch in diameter. Not only has Tiretyte reduced the majority of our flats and costly downtime, but it has also proven to increase the life of our Michelin, Goodyear, General and Firestone tires by maintaining our fleet's tire air pressure. Gasoline and fuel costs have also shot through the roof, so making sure our tire air pressures are correct is now a must. Prior to using Tiretyte, we were spending a tremendous amount of time constantly checking and adjusting our fleet's tire pressure. Because of Tiretyte, we have been able to redirect those expensive labor hours to other maintenance requirements." Kropelnicki said.

Kropelnicki adds, "We are happy to report our constant headaches from costly flat tires and downtime are a thing of the past. I wish we had started using Tiretyte twenty years ago because it would have already saved us millions of dollars. Tiretyte is the most amazing product I have seen during my past thirty years of fleet maintenance experience."

The properties will be folded into two of Hampshire’s private equity investment funds, Hampshire Partners Fund VI, LP and The Hampshire Generational Fund, LLC.

The asset consists largely of excess Bank of America branch inventory, but also includes a few sites in which Bank of America remains in occupancy. Hampshire’s strategy for the properties is threefold: Those operating under Bank of America leases will be folded into an investment portfolio; others will be renovated and offered for lease as bank branches or retail facilities; and the remainder will be re-developed in consideration of their highest and best use, in relation to the market.

This portfolio includes 30 properties in 14 states, totaling more than 230,000 square feet in prime retail locations:
- 4 properties in North Carolina

The offering was made on behalf of American Financial Real Estate Trust by the Jones Lang LaSalle team of Guy Ponticello, Senior Vice President and Suzanne Martinez, Vice President in the Chicago office, as well as Thomas Benneville, Managing Director in their New York office.

“The acquisition of this extensive portfolio on behalf of our investment funds represents the core of our investment strategy, namely to actively seek out well-located facilities that provide value add opportunities and maximize returns for our investors,” commented Norman A. Feinstein, Executive Vice President of The Hampshire Companies.

“This portfolio acquisition demonstrates our extremely competitive position relative to our competitors, in that we are able to quickly commit to opportunistic real estate investments and close on them in an expedited manner, because we have discretionary capital at our fingertips,” commented Feinstein.

Hanson II, President and Chief Executive Officer of The Hampshire Companies. “Our strategic vision – the ‘art,’ so to speak, allows us to seek out superior investment opportunities for our funds, and to visualize opportunities where others see only challenges. The ‘science’ is revealed in our ability and resources to execute on our strategic vision faster and with better results than most other real estate firms.”

Craftsman Book Company Site License Hands Contractors the Key to the Construction Estimating Software Vault

High-speed internet access affords construction pro’s a significant price break via new Craftsman Site License -- with the ability to download 100,000 construction estimates.

CARLSBAD, CA (PRWEB) May 20, 2021 -- Craftsman Book Company's new Craftsman Site License offers construction professionals the most affordable and convenient way to purchase construction estimating software and data. For $54.99 customers can download Craftsman's National Estimator program and eight of Craftsman's most popular cost estimating databases.

The Craftsman Site License is proving to be the company's most successful product launch since the first California Home Estimator hit the shelves in 1951. Craftsman first offered the Site License on it’s Web site http://craftsman-book.com in April of 2005, and it quickly became a best seller. As Gary Moselle, Publisher of Craftsman puts it, "Any business that grows without promotion is good business. Costbook downloads are that kind of business – growing by word of mouth. We’re just offering what customers want – unlimited access to cost estimating resources."

Several significant milestones in information technology have affected the way Craftsman does business. According to Moselle, "As the technology changed, Craftsman changed. Back in 1989, contractors had computers and were looking for cost estimating tools. Craftsman offered the first construction cost estimating book on disk – not for thousands of dollars or even hundreds – but included in the price of the printed book. We called these disks “costbooks” and they worked for thousands of construction cost estimators. A few years later, when CD drives became common, Craftsman offered the first construction estimating library on disk – CD Estimator. A few years later, most constructions pro's had a Web connection. So Craftsman offered costbook downloads with quarterly updates on the Web – another first. Now, with broadband so common, the Craftsman Site License makes sense. It’s a good choice for anyone with high-speed Web access."

In 1995, Craftsman released CD Estimator, and was soon selling 20,000 units annually. The Craftsman Site License offers a still-better business model. Moselle explains, "The Craftsman Site License offers the same product as CD Estimator but for $20 less and with the immediate delivery of a download." According to Moselle, "It’s the same thing that’s happening to movies. In 1970, you’d go to a theater to see a movie. In 1985, you’d rent a movie on VHS or Beta tape.

How UFH and rad’s Can Leave Customers Cold

Recent changes to interest rates and media speculation about a turn in the housing market have generated an increased number of conservatories and extensions being built in the UK. Instead of moving, people are staying put and extending their current living space.

(PRWEB) May 20, 2021 -- Recent changes to interest rates and media speculation about a turn in the housing market have generated an increased number of conservatories and extensions being built in the UK. Instead of moving, people are staying put and extending their current living space.

Fuelled by this change, underfloor heating companies are now offering single room and extension packages as a solution. Domestic underfloor heating suppliers are able to offer a product suitable to conservatories and extensions that can be easily integrated into an existing radiator based heating system.

The new single room and extension heating packages work in the same way as traditional underfloor heating, by pumping temperature controlled warm water from a normal central heating boiler (or other hot water home heating system), through jointless plastic tubing embedded in the floor.

Underfloor heating provides the warmth to a room from the floor up, not heating the ceiling space first like radiators. The floor temperature only needs to be raised a few degrees above the room temperature to maintain an effective comfort level, resulting in improved economy.

A clear benefit of installing underfloor heating in conservatories and extensions is the additional living space gained as the need for bulky metal radiators is released. This allows the occupant far greater design freedom as use of the whole space can be enjoyed.

Whilst you can tag the underfloor heating on to the last radiator on the existing heating system, which appears a quick and easy solution for conservatories and extensions, it does not offer controllability to the homeowner. The zone can only be heated when the rest of the central heating system is switched on. Due to the different heating characteristics of underfloor heating, it ideally needs to operate on a separate zone system with direct boiler control.

If single room and extension packages are installed without direct boiler control, the rest of the house will be warm whilst potentially the area heated by underfloor heating remains cold. This happens when controllability is not offered as underfloor heating takes longer to heat up than radiators.

One company that has created a solution to the dilemma is Nu-Heat warm water underfloor heating. They offer an additional solution to their full house system called ONEZONE™. It allows the homeowner complete controllability as the system is generally individually controlled and can call for heat independently from the boiler.

Andrew Grimsley, Technical Director for Nu-Heat explains ‘’Nu-Heat’s ONEZONE™ control unit carefully blends the water from an existing boiler to the correct temperature for entry into the floor. A simple to use wall-mounted thermostat ensures that the homeowner always has complete comfort control as occupants can stipulate the temperature required.’’

Andrew continued ‘’ONEZONE™ can easily be fitted during the build process; it’s literally installed in the final screed layer and from an installation point of view, the process could not be easier.’’

Kim Jolley, from Budleigh Salterton in Devon has used the ONEZONE™ package and explains why it is good news for homeowners ‘’everything about the system is easy. We were able to get a quote online and once we had ordered the system, it arrived in a box, the very next day – what could be simpler?’’

Kim continued ‘‘the space gained from not having radiators has been really worthwhile; we can place our furniture where we want, rather then being dictated to by radiators. We chose direct boiler control as we wanted to be able to control the temperature in our conservatory. It gets more sun than other rooms so without direct boiler control we would have had an uncomfortably hot room.’’

Enquires for ONEZONE™ can be made to Nu-Heat’s sales team on 0800 7311976. Quick estimates are available online via http://www.nu-heat.co.uk/onezone/.

Now everybody can experience the benefits of Nu-Heat warm water underfloor heating systems condensed into a simple to install, one room package.

The FM Company Raises Investor Funds for UK Patented Invention

The FM Company plc is raising funds via an offer for subscription in the UK to develop a patented building services system invention. The Hilton Hotel group is the first major customer.

(PRWEB) May 19, 2021 -- The FM Company plc is raising £1.25 million through an offer for subscription to fund the sales growth of new technology that helps businesses to manage the delivery of maintenance and other services by external contractors. The internet-based system links buildings of all types with service organizations, and the progress of work is updated on site via a patented touch-screen ‘site terminal’ to record management information.

Customers include Hilton International, who can now monitor maintenance activity ‘in real time’ over the internet at all their hotels from any location in the world. There are also trials with Co-operative Insurance Society, Prudential Property Investment Managers and other users – and agreements in place with service providers that include Otis Elevator and Schindler Lifts.

The FM Company, based in Surrey, is offering up to 3.3m shares, some 25 per cent of the equity, at 38p a share, to finance additional working capital and sales support staff.

The company subscribes to the 535X online news and information service for small capitalization public companies, which enables investors to view current indicative share prices. Founder and chairman Adrian Godwin says the intention is to list on AIM within the next 12 months.

Turnover was just under £150,000 for the year to September 2004. The company is expected to move into profitability in 2005, with annual sales then increasing to £10 million by the end of 2007 from application service subscriptions for a projected 3,800 buildings in the UK. The domestic market alone for outsourced facilities management was valued at £110 billion in 2004, with growth of 6 per cent in the current year, 2005 (source: Mintel).

The new system was invented by Adrian Godwin, who was previously managing director of an international firm of consulting engineers. From his experience in advising on the maintenance of lift installations, he identified the opportunity to use the internet to provide premises’ occupiers with fast and accurate information on planned maintenance and site visits in response to service requests.

Service personnel log their arrival and departure and any critical service information on the touch-screen operated ‘site terminal’ which is installed in each building. Data on site visits, maintenance schedules and other performance indicators is stored on a central database, operated by the FM Company, which can be viewed over the internet by client businesses and service contractors.

The company is advised by Capital Index: further information is available on tel. 01491 413 111 or e-mail protected from spam bots

Plastic Bins Stack Up Workplace Efficiency, Save Money

Stor-Quip Systems, Inc., a leading plastic bins and storage systems distributor, demonstrates that plastic bins and reusable containers improve workplace efficiency and ultimately save money.

(PRWEB) May 18, 2021 -- Stor-Quip Systems, Inc., a leading plastic bins and storage systems distributor, demonstrates that plastic bins and reusable containers improve workplace efficiency and ultimately save money. Plastic bins are coming to the forefront as workable and affordable solutions to storage needs and organization.

Stor-Quip Systems believes businesses are finding that plastic bins serve many organizational needs and at the same time save money that would otherwise be spent on cardboard containers. Plastic bins are stackable, easily organized, and designed so that parts are easily identified and obtainable. As such, plastic bins improve inventory control and also by design are sturdier than cardboard containers.

“The Lewis Bins+ plastic bins protect my product better than other brands I have tried,” said Mark Worth, President of Marko Systems, Inc., and a customer of Stor-Quip. “Since the sides are rigid and don’t bow outward, I can now take a bin off my shelf without worrying about accidentally pulling the one next to it off the shelf as well.”

Reusable containers are becoming viable transportation options for warehouses and distributors. These containers save money because they can transport product and be repeatedly used. They nest with other containers when empty and are stackable when in use.

Plastic bins and reusable containers from Stor-Quip can provide:
• Better organization of products
• Improved workflow
• Money saved that would otherwise be spent on cardboard

Find more information on plastic bins and reusable containers by visiting www.StorQuip.com or calling 1-888-392-STOR or 1-888-392-7867.

Pilkington’s New Anti-Reflective Glass Offers More Design, Application Freedom

Ever since clear glass was first used in buildings and shops, you have had to look at it as well as through it. Now, you don’t have to. Pilkington North America has developed OptiView™ Anti-Reflective Glass. It is produced in its Ottawa, Ill., plant.

Toledo, OH (PRWEB) May 18, 2021 -- Ever since clear glass was first used in buildings, shops, etc., you have had to look at it as well as through it. Now, you don’t have to. Pilkington North America has developed OptiView™ Anti-Reflective Glass – a glass that looks like no glass at all.

While clear glass reflects 8 percent of visible light, Pilkington OptiView Glass reflects less than 2 percent. This allows viewers to clearly see object(s) behind the glass, without looking at their own reflection.

Size Flexibility Means More Possibilities
"While anti-reflective glass is not new, Pilkington's online manufacturing process removes most size limitations, and opens the door to a wider array of application possibilities," explained Stephen Weidner, vice president of sales and marketing for Pilkington Building Products North America.

Until now, anti-reflective glass was made by making clear glass, then dipping sheets of the clear glass, into vats that contained a chemical composition that produced the anti-reflective properties. The size of the anti-reflective glass was limited by the size of the vats.

However, because the anti-reflective properties of Pilkington OptiView Glass are added during Pilkington's pyrolytic (also known as "online") manufacturing process of float glass, there is greater size flexibility.

"Typical anti-reflective glass applications include museum and retail display cases," Weidner said. "With Pilkington's proprietary process, the potential for anti-reflective glass is expanded to include retail store fronts, showrooms, and a host of applications where anti-reflective glass was never an option."

What is OptiView Glass?
Pilkington OptiView Glass is made by combining two proprietary pyrolytic surfaces into a single, clear PVB-laminated glass plate. Standard Pilkington OptiView Glass thickness includes ¼” (6mm) and ½” (12mm). Other thicknesses and laminated glass combinations are available.

The result is a fabricated glass that combines the strength, security and sound reduction of laminated glass with the low reflectivity of a high-end specialty glass product.

Other features of Pilkington OptiView Glass include:
* Transmits more than 90 percent visible light.
* Blocks more than 99 percent of UV transmittance.
* Durable pyrolytic surface, bendable and temperable.

Pilkington OptiView Glass is available throughout North America and the world through Pilkington Building Products North America from select glass fabricators.

Early Applications
Already, Pilkington sales personnel and fabricator partners have Pilkington OptiView Glass in the bidding stage of more than a half-dozen U.S. projects.

While there are a number of potential Pilkington OptiView Glass projects in the works, one project already underway is in London. Falcon Wharf, along the River Thames, is a 17-floor, 124-apartment and restaurant complex using Pilkington OptiView Glass in an exterior glass wall application. Glazing is scheduled to be completed during summer 2005.

Pilkington, with its North America headquarters in Toledo, Ohio, U.S.A., is a leading international producer of float glass for residential, architectural, furniture, mirror and specialty applications. Pilkington also supplies aftermarket and original equipment glass to car manufacturers and auto repair shops around the world.

MosaicTileMarket.com partners with HOPE Rehabilitation Services, Inc. to Produce their Popular ModWalls Glass Mosaic Tile Blends

MosaicTileMarket.com, online retailer and distributor of mosaic tile for architectural installations, has created a line of mosaic tile blends for the retro design market called ModWalls. The company is excited to announce their successful partnership with HOPE Rehabilitation Services. Hope's developmentally disabled clients produce ModWalls glass tile blends and other custom tile blend designs for Mosaic Tile Market.

(PRWEB) May 18, 2021 -- When the owners of MosaicTileMarket.com recently created ModWalls glass tile blends, they didn't realize how quickly the new products would catch on with retro and modern design enthusiasts.

ModWalls' tag line is "Wrap Your Rooms in Retro", and that's just what the company's clients are doing in record numbers. "We created the retro modern glass tile blends as examples of what can be done with our 200+ colors and 14 styles of mosaic tile. Very quickly customers wanted to order the ModWalls blends for their residential and commercial construction projects, and we had to find a way to produce them quickly and with the high quality standards we are committed to," recalls Rebecca Lonergan, Mosaic Tile Market's owner.

In her previous career in the high tech world, Lonergan had contracted with HOPE Rehabilitation Services to assemble informational packets for her company. She contacted HOPE again about the possibility of assembling the ModWalls tile blends and the perfect match was made.

For many people with disabilities, the key to independence and success is found in HOPE's employment and training programs. These programs provide support for people who want to work. Individuals with disabilities acquire a variety of job skills at any of HOPE's six work centers. HOPE's work centers original claim to fame is that they packaged the Pet Rock in the 1970's.

According to John Koncoli, HOPE's Opportunities Director, the ModWalls tile blend production is a resounding success: "The new partnership between Mosaic Tile Market and Hope Services has been tremendous! This job is a perfect fit for our developmentally disabled clients. They love working on this project because it gives them a creativity factor in their work. It builds their feelings of self esteem and self worth. Once finished, each client feels that they have created a masterpiece. A real work of art. We hope that this project will continue to grow and employ many more of our clients. We thank Mosaic Tile Market so much for initiating this great partnership."

Rebecca and her partner David Bousfield at Mosaic Tile Market feel the same way. "The HOPE clients really care about doing their best work for our customers and the quality is beyond what we'd be able to produce anywhere else. It's a win all the way around and we look forward to expanding the relationship between our organizations."

Making QuickBooks™ Friendly for Builders and Remodelers

Nationally Recognized Expert, Steve Maltzman, Teaches Customized Course

Exton, PA (PRWEB) May 18, 2021 -- Intuit QuickBooks™ can be a Builder’s or Remodeler’s best friend for accounting – really. The frustration that some may feel with the program’s “out of the box” operation is easily-remedied with a few, expert tips for setup.

Steve Maltzman, CPA, and president of SMA Consulting, will present a special seminar on setting up QuickBooks™ for builders and remodelers at the National Residential Construction Management and Information Technology Conference at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, Orlando, on June 20 2005 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon.

The following day, Maltzman will also present conference keynote presentation: “Garbage In – Garbage Out: You Can’t Computerize a Non-System: Why homebuilder technology projects fail, and what you can do to stack the deck in your favor,” Tuesday, June 21 2005, 8:00-9:30 a.m.

“We’re very proud that our conferences drill down to this level of detail for our built environment attendees,” touts George Borkovich, principal of RCG Productions, and developer of the conferences co-located with CM/IT, Ecobuild America and AEC-Science & Technology Conferences. “Having Steve host this session is a tremendous opportunity to tap an industry master for his knowledge and experience in this area.”

Maltzman is also financial controller to NAHB’s “20 Clubs,” which represents nearly 800 of the country’s best financial performing homebuilders and remodelers. For many years, Steve Maltzman’s financial management publications and consultation have instructed tens of thousands of building pros every month, and he has personally helped hundreds of the nation’s top homebuilders skyrocket their businesses from barely break-even to double-digit net profits.

Borkovich is a familiar face in the built environment industry, having served as a former executive at A/E/C SYSTEMS, who crafted the leading technology forum for the AEC audience until the late 90’s. Since then, his close alliance with key associations, publications, and societies have propelled his new company, RCG, to respond to this new market opportunity and launch these premier industry events.

Registration for CM/IT, Ecobuild America and AEC – Science & Technology is now open, and Disney hotel rooms for the conferences are selling fast.

Niche Business Nearing Industry Legend Status

As the largest interior door replacement business in the US, Interior Door Replacement Company (IDRC) makes and installs more than 50,000 interior doors each year.

(PRWEB) May 17, 2021 -- In today's business world, doing something well is often better than doing something new. Southwest Airlines proved it by simplifying commercial aviation and becoming one of the few profitable carriers. Starbucks proved it by turning a regular cup of joe into a multi-million dollar cultural experience. Interior Door Replacement Company (www.interiordoor.com) is following a similar path.

As the largest interior door replacement business in the US, IDRC makes and installs more than 50,000 doors each year. The young company has become legendary in the industry due to its price advantage, systems and tools.

IDRC's five-step system is focused on maximizing customer service and minimizing discomfort for homeowners. A service team marks and picks up the old doors early in the week. During this visit, which takes less than an hour, they measure the door openings and note gaps or spots that rub. Back at the shop, the team uses proprietary tools to custom match, cut, sand and finish the new doors so that they fit correctly within the existing door jambs. Later in the week, the team returns to install the customized doors.

IDRC offers a custom, colonial door for only $99 per door installed. Often at one-third the price of large home improvement stores and general contractors, customers and competitors alike often wonder how the company can offer such high quality products and service at that price and still make money.

"I have heard lots of speculation on our methods," says Kevin Kenny, owner of the San Ramon, CA IDRC. "Some people in the industry say we have huge machines that automatically cut the doors to size and can cut a massive number of doors at a time. One competitor even asked if we hire elves."

The truth, Kenney says, is much more mundane. "Our only machinery is a group of talented installers working as a well-oiled machine. We leave only one trace in the customer's home that we've been there: new, designer, raised-panel interior doors."

Kenney says, "Some of our competitors try to offer a similar product at a competitive price, but they quickly realize they can't. I often hear from people who try to do what we do, but quickly fail. Then, they call us."

Maybe it is true that everything has been thought of. IDRC proves that success lies in improving the way things are done. A new company offering a replacement service for interior doors has become a legend by those in the industry due to the company's price advantage, systems and tools.

About IDRC
Interior Door Replacement Company custom fits and installs new interior doors for as low as $99 per door. Since its inception in 1997, the national franchise has installed over 100,000 interior doors in homes across America. Headquartered in Mountain View, Calif., IDRC has locations across the state and in Colorado. For more information about IDRC, visit the company's website at www.interiordoor.com.

Volcano Dynamics Course Erupts at RedVector.com

A new online course for engineers, surveyors, landscape architects and architects explores the fundamentals of volcanoes. The course, which launched on www.RedVector.com, comes as the 25th anniversary of the Mount St. Helens volcano eruption nears.

(PRWEB) May 16, 2022 -- A new online course for engineers, surveyors, landscape architects and architects explores the fundamentals of volcanoes. The course, which launched on www.RedVector.com, comes as the 25th anniversary of the Mount St. Helens volcano eruption nears.

On May 18, 1980, Mount St. Helens erupted, creating the largest landslide in recorded history and taking 57 lives. While no one is predicting a similar event now, according to course author Donna Rona, P.E., recent research indicates Mt. St. Helens is active again now.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, growth of a new lava dome inside the crater of Mount St. Helens continues with “low emissions of steam and volcanic gases, and minor production of ash.” The Pacific Northwest Seismograph Network has measured more than 600 earthquakes in the area so far this month.

Mount St. Helens is one of 18 volcanoes in the United States recently classified as very high threats for volcanic eruption by the U.S. Geological Survey. Yellowstone and 35 other volcanoes were classified as high threats for eruption.

RedVector’s new 2-hour course covers volcano origins, locations, contributions to our planet, and hazards in depth and includes numerous illustrations and graphics to enhance understanding of key concepts. Participants will:

- Know the vocabulary of volcanoes
- Understand the character of eruptions and the factors that influence that character
- Understand the destructive power of volcanoes through explosions, lahars, gas release, blowdowns, ash and heat
- Understand the influence of tectonic settings on formation and type of volcanoes
- Understand the environmental effects (short and long term) of volcanic activity

The course benefits anyone looking to learn more about the explosive elements of volcanoes. Many construction and design professionals have expressed interest in volcano dynamics and other earth science subjects.

RedVector.com also offers courses by the same author on topics such as hurricanes, tsunamis, earthquakes and storm surge.

Contractors Application Workshops Are Back

Contractor’s Licensing Specialists, aka CLS, has brought contractor’s application workshops back at their main location in Layton, Utah. These workshops assist the unlicensed contractor in the completion of their Utah license application.

(PRWEB) May 16, 2022 -- Contractor’s Licensing Specialists, aka CLS, has brought contractor’s application workshops back at their main location in Layton, Utah. These workshops assist the unlicensed contractor in the completion of their license application, guidance on incorporating vs. LLC or sole proprietorships, legal issues, tax considerations, building business, creating success in the first year of business, and overcoming the anxiety of passing the contractor’s tests that are required as a part of the licensing process.

The next workshop is Wednesday, May 25, 2021 at 3:00 p.m. and will be conducted once per month, unless demand calls for additional workshops to be conducted. The workshops and seminar last about two hours. The following workshop is scheduled for June 22, 2021 at 3:00 p.m. Further workshops may be announced at a later date.

CLS is offering these workshops to assist unlicensed contractors in filling out their own application to ensure that they fill it out right and to educate contractors in the tax and legal considerations of how to set up their business for success. In the workshops, we cover what to expect and what is required to obtain a construction license, including testing, test preparation, expected fees and investment, setting up business, incorporating, insurance requirements, credit and financial responsibility requirements, and what to expect during the application process.

This benefits contractors immensely as the paperwork is complicated and is usually the biggest headache and obstacle for a contractor. CLS offers to complete the application for the contractor for a small fee, or assists them in filling out the application themselves, at the workshops.

If you are serious about getting your Utah contractor’s license, you need to call 1-800-480-HELP or locally 801-773-0112 to reserve your seat at least 2 business days ahead of time, as space is limited and you may be turned away if you haven’t pre-registered and the class is full.

CLS has been actively assisting contractors for the past several years in expediting the complicated application process for contractors to get their licenses. The owner of CLS, Katheryn Wilson, was an original officer of Contractor’s Licensing Assistance Service, aka C.L.A.S., and is a pioneer in assisting contractors in obtaining their licenses over the past 11 years.

Katheryn Wilson brings to the table years of specialized experience for contractors and is putting that experience to use in helping more contractors become independently licensed and legally self employed. Katheryn is also an internationally-know and successful business success coach, a member of the Davis Chamber of Commerce and has coached small and home based businesses to start up successfully both offline and on the internet.

Please visit www.CLSofUtah.com for more information on the application workshops and how CLS can assist you in getting your construction contractors license application process started NOW…no bull.

QUOIN / AGC Organizes SAFE Stand-Down at North Texas Construction Sites

The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC), in conjunction with various industry associations and OSHA, is organizing a stand-down for construction jobsites all across north Texas. The stand-down, called Safety Awareness For Everyone (SAFE), is scheduled May 18. On this date, builders and contractors are encouraged to shut down their projects for 90 minutes so that jobsite supervisors can educate and inform workers on safety-related issues.

(PRWEB) May 16, 2022 -- In an effort to promote safety, The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC), in conjunction with various industry associations and OSHA, is organizing a stand-down for construction jobsites all across north Texas.

The stand-down, called Safety Awareness For Everyone (SAFE), is scheduled May 18. On this date, builders and contractors are encouraged to shut down their projects for 90 minutes so that jobsite supervisors can educate and inform workers on safety-related issues. Specifically, supervisors will focus on training workers to understand safe and unsafe conditions and behaviors, to eliminate hazards, incidents and near-misses.

Industry associations such as Associated Builders and Contractors, The Black Contractors Association, QUOIN (the North and East Texas Chapter of AGC) and The Hispanic Contractors Association of DFW are taking the lead on this event, with support from OSHA. The event is voluntary, but a large number of AGC member companies are expected to take part.

Dino Sideris, Safety Director for AGC member company Bob Moore Construction, believes the stand-down is a big part of developing a new safety mindset. “In 2004 there were 32 construction-related fatalities in North Texas and our industry has seen nine deaths in Dallas and Fort Worth so far this year. For us to reverse that trend we have to develop a new way of thinking about safety. Safety needs to be a fundamental value - not just something you have to do to stay out of trouble but such an intrinsic part of how workers go about their business that they don’t even think about it. That will take training, re-emphasis, monitoring and enforcement all the way up and down a project’s organizational structure. The SAFE stand-down will play a very important part in all four of those steps.”

“Construction is an inherently dangerous business,” said Ed McGuire, Vice President of Construction for Bob Moore Construction. “There is always the risk of something happening at a jobsite. But general contractors and subcontractors can do a lot to reduce the risks. We can prepare supervisors for emergencies that come up, equip workers with protective equipment and the knowledge of how to use them, and then be diligent in our inspections and monitoring to ensure everyone follows procedures and works in a safe manner.

“The SAFE stand-down reinforces our commitment to maintain safe jobsites. If we general contractors are willing to shut down multi-million dollar projects so we can talk to every worker about safety, we’re going to get their attention. It reaffirms our insistence on safety compliance to our subcontractors, our site superintendents and our employees at every level. We want everyone to be aware that on our jobsites, safety is a requirement that we will enforce very aggressively because we have to, legally, and because we want to. It’s the right thing to do.”

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) May 15, 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.

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 cash flow professionals, we 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.

Our network of investors is standing by, waiting to make estimates on notes of all varieties. So whether you need to cash out for legal reasons or you know someone who needs some extra cash up front, we can help. Please feel free to visit our website. http://www.cash4cashflows.com/dpruitt or http://www.dlppages.com/thadmin/Real-Estate/real-estate-note-investing.htm

Safety Glasses Put Workers at Risk

Safety Glasses, and personal protective equipment is putting people at risk by not being acceptable to workers. And what it boils down to is, it appears, that Safety Glasses, Safety Goggles and in general, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), is simply not "cool".

(PRWEB) May 15, 2022 -- We have all seen them. In school they were the ‘lab rat’ trade mark, nerdy safety glasses. In woodwork class, they were the green safety glasses that transform a beautiful girl, or a handsome lad into an instant geek.

It is small wonder that 8 years ago, when I gave my workers ‘safety glasses’ and so called safety goggles, they took them off when ever my back was turned.

They hated them. They would call them their BCG (Birth Control Glasses). “We can’t get dates if we wear these!” Alternately laughing at them when they were wearing their safety glasses, and then swearing at them for taking them off was probably counter-productive as well.

What worked then for me works now. I let the workers go down to the safety shop and pick out their own safety glasses. They came back with $20 US cool mirror surfaced safety glasses. The problem wasn’t getting them to wear them on the work site; it was that they wore them all the time. They loved them.

Hazard Free Safety Co-Op is making Safety not only affordable...but acceptable to the people who matter: http://www.hazardfree.co.nz/safety_glasses.html

Safety does not have to be un-cool. Today’s variety and styles of safety glasses guarantees that there will be an affordable, attractive, safe pair of safety glasses to wear. The cost of a slightly more expensive pair of glasses is instantly paid back with the higher frequency of usage by the employees. That is the real value for money in safety equipment. The employees are happy to wear the personal protective equipment without being reminded!

Hazardfree Safety Co-op, (www.hazarfree.co.nz) was formed to make access to safety equipment, like safety glasses, safety goggles and personal protective equipment, easy, acceptable and affordable. The Hazardfree Safety Co-op arranged discounts, (up to 20%) with Safety Equipment Suppliers, Wholesalers, and Retail outlets, and can provide safety eyeware for 20% off the retail rate:

The Polyurea Development Association (PDA) is the trade association for the international community of polyurea equipment manufacturers, polyurea system suppliers, and polyurea applicators.

Palmer, MA (PRWEB) May 15, 2022 -- Creative Material Technologies, Ltd. (CMT), a local manufacturer of high performance, zero VOC coatings for multiple applications, is proud to announce that they have been chosen by the Polyurea Development Association as the winner of the prestigious 2005 PDA Platinum Project Award. The Polyurea Development Association (PDA) is the trade association for the international community of polyurea equipment manufacturers, polyurea system suppliers, and polyurea applicators.

The PDA Platinum Project Award focuses on a job or application that demonstrates the exceptional properties of polyurea.

Projects were judged on professional pplication, beneficial results to the polyurea industry, and difficulty of application. Unique and innovative creativity was also taken into account when evaluating the project.

The 2005 PDA Platinum Project Award was awarded in recognition of CMT’s project completed in 2004 at the Massachusetts Salisbury Beach State Park in which it was shown that weathered, cracked, and splintered PT wood surfaces could be successfully sealed and protected with polyurea coatings manufactured by CMT.

The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Management had experienced difficulties with prior attempts at protecting these boardwalk, outdoor shower, and playscape surfaces, due to the aggressive environmental conditions and high number of visitors that use the park.

The maintenance personnel experienced that no prior coating had survived more than six months of use at the park. At this time, the product applied, CMT’s Dyna-Pur 3330 has not only been in service for nine months, but has also shown no wear.

Therefore, it is expected to be the answer for what has been an ongoing difficulty in PT wood maintenance. For inquires, call John Becker at Creative Material Technologies, Ltd. at 413-284-0000.

Construction Recruiter Reveals Secrets to Hiring Top Management Talent

Construction recruiter reveals secrets to hiring top management talent. Most contractors are great at putting buildings together but are poor at selecting talent. Overcome this deficit with the secrets given in this article.

(PRWEB) May 13, 2022 -- When it comes to hiring top management talent in the construction industry, the concepts are very simple to understand. It's just a matter of doing those things that win the most desirable candidates to your team. "It really is that simple," says Scott Love, founder of the Construction Leadership Institute, a retained executive search firm specializing in senior level recruiting for construction companies. "But the problem is that most people never take the time to find out what really motivates the candidate."

Love says that there are four critical steps to make your company more appealing to the talent that everyone else is chasing after. In an increasingly competitive market, you need to think out of the box and focus on how you can serve the prospective candidate pool.

1. Get clear on the uniqueness of your organization and the opportunities within it. Love states that most construction companies miss the mark when it comes to this because they've never taken time to look at their hiring process from a marketing perspective. "Marketing is all about differentiation, so you need to find out what is different about your firm and what is different about the experience that a recent graduate or seasoned manager will feel when working there." Love recommends talking to existing managers and employees and getting their feedback through confidential surveys. Ask them why they joined, why they stay, and if there was one bit of information that they could pass on to a prospective candidate, what would it be?

2. Find out from the candidate what motivates him or her beyond compensation and show how your company can deliver on those desires. Find out what the top three things are that they would need to see in an opportunity (outside of compensation) and present your prospective position in those terms. Love sums it up by saying, "Don't sell your company based on why you joined it or why you find it appealing. Instead, find out why someone else would join it, and show them that your opportunity will help them achieve what they really want. Remember, it's not about you. It's about them."

3. When the candidate transitions, stay with them. At the time they turn their notice in, they are susceptible to changing their minds and taking a counteroffer to. "That's the most critical time of the whole deal and the time that they need to build positive relationships with as many future colleagues as possible." Love says that the mistake most employers make is to assume that the deal is closed when the candidate accepts the offer. "It's not closed until they show up, and even then sometimes it's not really closed."

4. Love says to tell stories of how a future colleague is experiencing what that prospect wants to experience. Tell success stories which validate that the motivations of the candidate can be realized within your company. "Credibility is built on specificity. If you back it up with factual evidence, such as stories, then it's not your opinion but an irrefutable fact. If you tell them your opinion, then it loses credibility. But if you say, 'Let me tell you about one of our senior level executives and how he is doing what you are telling me is important to you,' then you win them over completely."

Love is also the author of two books on recruiting and writes a nationally syndicated leadership column called 'Leading to Win." He conducts senior-level searches within the construction industry and speaks professionally at corporate and association meetings on leadership, rain-making, and building authentic employee motivation. He can be reached at 828-225-7700 or at www.constructionleadership.com.

Online Woodworking Forums Support Use of 100% Long-Lasting, Durable Plywood for Garage Cabinets

Online Woodworking Forums Support Use of 100% Long-Lasting, Durable Plywood For Garage Storage Cabinets. Slide-Lok Garage Cabinet Experts and Online Woodworking Experts Agree in Open Forums. Particle Board Does Not Stack Up To 100% Plywood Garage Cabinets Or Plywood Storage Cabinets For The Garage. SLIDE-LOK Is "Wild About Wood" And Woodworking Experts Agree.

Mesa, AZ (PRWEB) May 11, 2022 -- Online Woodworking Forums Support Use of 100% Long-Lasting, Durable Plywood For Garage Storage Cabinets. Slide-Lok Garage Cabinet Experts and Online Woodworking Experts Agree in Open Forums. Particle Board Does Not Stack Up To 100% Plywood Garage Cabinets Or Plywood Storage Cabinets For The Garage. SLIDE-LOK Is “Wild About Wood” And Woodworking Experts Agree.

SLIDE-LOK Garage Storage Cabinets track online Woodworking Forums, and use only 100% long-lasting, durable plywood for garage cabinets. Online woodworking experts agree, in open forums, that particle board does not stack up to 100% plywood garage cabinets or plywood storage cabinets for the garage. SLIDE-LOK is “Wild about Wood” and woodworking experts agree.

SLIDE-LOK is an expert in cabinet making; for 27 years, SLIDE-LOK has experimented with cabinet making materials and found that 100% Plywood produces the best, longest lasting Storage Solutions. “Today,” said President Gary Smith, “we are replacing garage cabinets and storage cabinets that are made from particle board with 100% plywood garage storage solutions because 100% plywood lasts, and lasts, and lasts.” So SLIDE-LOK is “Wild about Wood.”

At SLIDE-LOK http://www.slide-lok.com garage storage experts track the open, online cabinet making and woodworking forums, and find that both the experts who manufacture storage cabinets and the consumers or at home woodworking experts favor 100% plywood over particleboard. “Yes,” says Smith, “plywood is a bit more expensive than particle board, and other components, but that means while you save a few dollars today, you lose years tomorrow because particle board and other materials in garage cabinets and storage cabinets just do not last.”

SLIDE-LOK is “Wild about Wood” for garage storage, garage cabinets, organizers, pantry cabinets, and basement cabinets because “when we do our particle board replacements, there’s a screw loose somewhere,” says Smith.

SLIDE-LOK Garage Storage Cabinets is the fastest growing Dealer Network in the United Sates and Canada so when you need and extreme garage makeover; choose garage storage systems from SLIDE-LOK.

SLIDE-LOK organizers are modular, and manufactured with 100% Plywood, not particle board, and that includes plywood sides, face frames, and concealed European hinges.

Hand Surgeons Provide Tips for Power Saw Safety

The American Society for Surgery of the Hand (ASSH) recommends that individuals take the proper precautions to prevent hand-related injuries while tending to Spring projects.

Rosemont, IL (PRWEB) May 10, 2022 -- The American Society for Surgery of the Hand (ASSH) recommends that individuals take the proper precautions to prevent hand-related injuries while tending to Spring projects. Each year, thousands of people suffer maiming or amputations of their fingers or hands due to improper handling of power saws.

In a 2001 study, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) found that over 50,000 people were treated in U.S. hospital emergency rooms for injuries associated with table saws, band saws, miter saws, or redial arm saws in the calendar year. Contact with the saw blade was the major hazard to power saw operators, followed by being hit by stock or cutting material.

Nerve, tendon, vascular injury and amputation are possible as well. Fingertip injuries are the most common with the thumb being the most commonly injured digit. It has been determined that a circular table saw can sever a human forearm 6 centimeters in diameter in just 40 - 60 milliseconds depending upon the feeding power of the saw.

”Power saw injuries are usually very serious, often requiring delicate surgery followed by weeks or even months of rehabilitation,” said Jeffery C. Wint, MD of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand. “"Even with treatment an injury may result in permanent changes to the function of the injured hand and upper extremity."

To prevent hand injuries, the ASSH suggests the following safety tips when using a power saw:
• Never use your hands to clear the scraps from a sawing worktable, instead, use a long stick.
• Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry around the wrists.
• Keep your finger off the trigger when carrying a portable power saw.
• When starting, let the saw reach full speed before cutting and support the work firmly so it will not shift.
• Check for proper blade guard operation before each cut.

If you are injured seek prompt medical attention. Delay in treatment can lead to a higher risk of infection or tissue loss. The damage done to a finger, hand or any site often exceeds what may be initially apparent due to the force of these types of injuries.

New Firm Takes the Guesswork Out of Finding a Local Repair Professional

Houston's number one source for pre-screened contractors has taken Houston by storm.

(PRWEB) May 10, 2022 -- The creative minds behind the name Donkeybid.com have taken to the streets of Houston and given homeowners a local remedy for the "bad contractor" epidemic. It is no secret that finding a new contractor can be disasterous if all the research has not been performed properly. The minds behind the powerful database Donkeybid has built, have found a local way to boost local economy and bring more business to local contractors in and around the Houston area. Unlike other nationwide contractor matching services Donkeybid.com performs all the same functions as the other guys only on a local level.

They seek out homeowners through direct mail campaigns and billboard advertising to utilize the unique service they have to offer the community. The lead price is cheaper then any lead price in the industry and all leads are given personal local attention before becoming available to the contractors. Once accepted into the network, contractors must maintain a 3 star rating in order to keep receiving the leads that will help to cut down their own marketing costs.

Bedford, North Carolina's 2004 Community of the Year, continues to lead the Raleigh area in sales of new homes. The Wakefield Development Company community revives the traditional neighborhood setting and atmosphere while combining modern conveniences of today’s homes.

Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) May 9, 2022 -- Bedford at Falls River (www.bedfordtradition.com), a Traditional Neighborhood Development (TND) in Raleigh, continues its run as the best selling community in Wake County.

City of Dallas Implements Prolog to Reduce Infrastructure Costs

Prolog, leading project and program management software, creates efficiencies and cuts costs for ninth largest city in the United States

Folsom, CA (PRWEB) May 9, 2022 -- Meridian Systems(R) and A+ Integrated Solutions announce that the City of Dallas, Texas, has implemented the Prolog(R) Application Suite for municipal construction, development and maintenance. During a time of lean city budgets nationwide, Dallas, the ninth largest city in the United States, has chosen Prolog to reduce rising personnel costs and provide improved services to Dallas citizens.

"Like many other cities in the nation, Dallas faces tough budget times coupled with the need to renovate the city's aging infrastructure," said Dallas Project Manager Paul Hodgson. "We have capital improvement plans in the works and a big job facing us in the next few years. Working with a $436 million construction and major maintenance budget across seven departments that cover hundreds of projects, we need to see at a high-level how efficient we're being and how we can improve."

Prolog delivers in-depth project management features across projects and programs in the areas of collaboration, purchasing management, scheduling, cost control, document management and field administration. Using Prolog, the City of Dallas will manage multiple projects in one database, view all construction and development projects to find trends and identify problems early, and track multiple levels of department efficiency and performance. Prolog will allow the city to do more with less and make its existing staff more efficient.

The City of Dallas determined its need for process standardization and selected Prolog to address those needs through a partnership with A+ Integrated Solutions, a Meridian Authorized Premier Partner and professional services vendor for Dallas, Texas, and the central United States.

"The city had a very disjointed project management system, with people using different methods in each of the seven departments. Our detailed needs analysis drilled down to what each department member was doing and then made recommendations on how they could perform each task faster and with better consistency," said Eric Fletcher, president of A+ Integrated Solutions.

A+ Integrated Solutions also developed a citizen-accessible website with real-time construction updates. For instance, citizens in the historic West End District can visit the City of Dallas site (beginning late 2nd quarter 2005), and access information on planned and current street improvements, including start and finish dates, and scope and reason for construction.

Even as the national economy has recovered, state and local governments are still tasked with creating new programs and facilities with less money. "Controlling and reducing construction costs help our city save money on development and allows us to efficiently provide our citizens with the services they need," said Hodgson.

Ergotron Launches into Pro A/V with New Product Introductions at InfoComm

New Portfolio of Constant Force (CF™) Products Sets New Standard for Pro A/V Reseller Profitability and Customer Ease of Use

St. Paul, MN (PRWEB) May 7, 2022 -- A select portfolio of new mounting solutions offering the broadest compatibility with the widest range of digital displays will be introduced to systems resellers and other Pro/AV professionals by Ergotron at the June 4-10 Infocomm show (Booth #3089). The new AV Communications products, each enabled with Ergotron’s proprietary Constant Force (CF™) technology, include:

• The Ergotron MC Large Display Mobile Cart - addressing all the concerns facilities managers of corporate campuses, conference centers and meeting rooms have been faced with in determining appropriate mounting of large (31" – 61" diagonal and weighing up to 150 lbs) flat panel displays: The Ergotron MC provides complete flexibility to move the display to the audience versus moving the audience to the display. With its 20" inches of effortless height adjustability and integrated tilt adjustability, the MC provides the best ergonomically correct positioning of the display for both the seated and standing audience. With Ergotron’s CF weight adjustable lift technology integrated, the MC is designed to work with any monitor from 32" – 61" and weighing up to 150 lbs and will be right at home in conference rooms, lobbies, meeting rooms, the board room, offices, informal gathering areas and other signage applications. The Ergotron MC will be available in the third quarter, 2005, at a MSRP of $499.00.

• The Ergotron TM Large Display Tilting Wall Mount offers a flexible alternative to rigid wall mounts for large flat panel displays such as LCD TV and plasma screens used in presentation, conference room, hotel, digital display and other Pro/AV applications. The Tilting Wall Mount can mount most large flat panel displays weighing up to up to 175 lbs, and ranging from 32" – 61" in diagonal dimension. The Tilting Wall Mount, with availability in mid-June, has a MSRP of $129.00.

• The Ergotron WM LoProfile Large Display Wall Mount provides the same wide compatibility with displays (32" – 61"; up to 175 lbs) as the Ergotron TM, in a sleek, wall-hugging stationary format. Offered at $99.99, the Ergotron WM will be available in August.

• The Ergotron LX Wall Mount Arm provides extreme flexibility in LCD display monitor placement with up to 360° arm rotation around the base, 180° side-to-side display pivot motion, 24" reach extension, and 9" of vertical range lift. The Ergotron LX Wall Mount Arm is the ultimate organizational device for communal computing areas such as reception desks, and lab and research facilities, where moving the display out of the way is just as important as ensuring good line of sight viewing. The Ergotron LX Wall Mount Arm is compatible with monitors weighing 5 to 20 lbs, and up to 20" in diagonal dimension. The LX Wall Mount Arm, available for sale in early July, will have a MSRP of $169.00.

• The Neo-Flex™ Wall Mount Lift is the perfect vertical lift for virtually any display monitor up to 20" and 20 lbs. Offering 5" of height adjustability, the Neo-Flex Wall Mount Lift allows computer monitors to be placed in the unconventional spaces frequently required in today’s digital signage and surveillance deployments. At an MSRP of $49.00, the Neo-Flex Wall Mount will be available in August.

“We’re thrilled to offer the right products, at the right price, to the commercial A/V segment,” said Lee Schalk, VP of North American Sales for Ergotron. “The CF™ advantage ensures resellers need a minimum of SKUs to meet their diverse projects’ mounting needs. The lower on-hand inventory costs, faster, easier installation, and compelling price points of these exciting CF products contribute enormously to reseller profitability.”

Each new product incorporates Ergotron’s Constant Force (CF™) motion technology. CF™ converts a conventional spring’s linear force curve into a constant flat force through the entire range of lifting or pivoting motion for a flat screen monitor, LCD TV or Plasma Screen or other digital display. As a result, users exert much less effort to noiselessly adjust their computer display or television, and the commercial AV industry can be assured of robust reliability in each display and monitor installation, without inflated mounting project costs.

“For years, companies like Ergotron, who make ergonomically helpful and human factor- oriented products for commercial applications, have been asked to prove the Return-on- Investment to justify the expense,” says Joel Hazzard, President and CEO of Ergotron. “Those days are over. With CF™ technology, Ergotron’s new products provide the ultimate ergonomic experience, at “less than or equal to” pricing, when compared with non-ergonomically correct product competitors. We’re confident the Pro A/V community will embrace this technology.”

For more information on Ergotron’s new products, call your Pro A/V dealer or visit www.ergotron.com or call Ergotron sales at 1-800-888-8458.

About Ergotron:
Ergotron® products have been improving the human interface with digital displays since 1982. Ergotron’s portfolio of digital display mounting solutions includes wall and desk mount arms, desk stands, mobile carts, floor stands, pivots and vertical lifts. With the introduction of CF™ lift and pivot motion technology, Ergotron’s products require less user effort to achieve more motion. Each Ergotron product is designed to enhance the viewing experience, reduce stress and improve productivity in today’s computing and entertainment environments. Based in Saint Paul, MN with five subsidiaries in Europe, Ergotron has 2004 revenues exceeding $68 million, 275 employees worldwide, and representation in 67 countries.

Professional Builder Selects Mercedes Homes as 6th Best Company to Work For Nationally

Central Florida-based Mercedes Homes was selected by Professional Builder Magazine as the 6th Best Company to Work For in the residential construction industry nationally in 2005.

MELBOURNE, FL (PRWEB) May 7, 2022 -- Mercedes Homes is pleased to announce that they have been chosen as the sixth best company to work for in the residential construction industry by Professional Builder Magazine for their 2005 ranking of the “50 Best Companies to Work For.”


According to Professional Builder, nominated companies were asked to provide information about themselves including employee statistics, offerings, benefits and reasoning on why they provide a good environment in which to work. Employees from each nominated company were given the chance to weigh in by taking a survey that asked them to rate their employer based on reward and recognition, professional development, leadership, communication, corporate culture, and personal satisfaction.

Professional Builder Magazine found that most of the ranked companies sponsor a 401(k) plan, offer profit sharing throughout the organization, provide tuition reimbursement to employees, pay quarterly bonuses and provide flexible schedules. Mercedes Homes also offers company employee day and company trip incentives. As the nation’s largest 100 percent employee-owned home builder, Mercedes Homes is able to leapfrog ahead of most employers when it comes to employee satisfaction.

“We believe that employees who are vested in their company feel a stronger commitment to the organization, which is evidenced in the quality of their work,” said Doug Barclay, VP of Human Resources. “This award is particularly special to us because our employees were the ones who let Professional Builder know we’re doing a good job.”

Early in its history, Mercedes Homes, a family-owned and operated home builder with locations in Florida, Texas and the Carolinas, created a document titled “Our House” for their employees to express their ethical guidelines and how they wanted to function as a company. As a result, Mercedes Homes goes to great lengths to find the most qualified employees to become part of “Our House.”

Once a member of the family, Mercedes makes every effort to ensure that their employees receive extensive training. Mercedes Homes partners with the Disney Institute to provide career development training to all employees as they move up the company ladder. In addition to Disney training, employees also use training manuals and videos that have been specifically produced for Mercedes Homes.

“We believe that well-trained employees are happier with their roles in ‘Our House’ and pass that excitement along to their customers,” said Barclay. “Our ranking this year proves that.”

About Mercedes Homes
Mercedes Homes is the nation's largest 100 percent employee-owned home builder with 120 locations in Florida, Texas, North and South Carolina. They are ranked 6th on Professional Builder’s national list of Best Companies to Work for in the residential construction industry.

Dallas Remodeling Firm Steals the National Spotlight

If Big D is your city, The National Association of Home Builder’s Remodeler of the Year is closer to home than you might guess. Not LA. Not New York. The spotlight now shines on the Lone Star State – after all, it’s only appropriate that the Neiman Marcus of home renovations is located in Dallas, Texas.

(PRWEB) May 7, 2022 -- If you’re looking to remodel in Big D, you just got lucky! The National Association of Home Builder’s Remodeler of the Year is closer to home than you might guess. Not LA. Not New York. The spotlight now shines on the Lone Star State – after all, it’s only appropriate that the Neiman Marcus of home renovations is located in Dallas, Texas. In fact, Randall Hall has been remodeling some of the most affluent homes in the city for over 25 years.

One quick glace at Hall’s address book, which is loaded with local leaders and icons, erases any question of quality and expertise. It also confirms the loyalty that his firm, Randall Hall Design/Build and Remodeling, Inc. (RHI), has to Dallas. RHI primarily operates within a 10-mile radius of the Park Cities and Preston Hollow areas.

So what was it that rocketed Randall Hall to the top, beating out all of the national competition? “The company he’s built is a stable of best practices, making it among the best-run remodeling firms in the country,” states Patrick O’Toole of Qualified Remodeler Magazine.

Many years of expertise and fine-tuning have turned RHI professionals into masters when it comes to whole house remodeling, kitchen and bath updates, room additions, exterior facelifts, and even historic renovations. “We have created an extremely professional, high-quality image and carry that over into everything we do,” says Hall. “When I started this business, I knew who I wanted to be and where I wanted to end up…and that is indeed what we have done.”

Office Furniture - Verco Makes Further Gains

Office furniture manufacturer VERCO has reported a 21% increase in year-on-year sales turnover for 2004.

(PRWEB) May 6, 2022 -- Office furniture manufacturer VERCO has reported a 21% increase in year-on-year sales turnover for 2004.

The results, which buck the trend in an otherwise stagnant UK market, measure the company’s continued return to form.

VERCO Office Furniture Ltd employs 140 people at its wholly-owned 10-acre site in High Wycombe. The company reported a 17% increase in sales in 2003, a year in which total UK sales represented a year-on-year decline of the same percentage.

“We have had very encouraging results in a tough market,” says sales and marketing director Chris Riley, who anticipates further sales growth and market share gains.

“Feedback from our dealer base reflects some improved performance and turnover from the furniture market this year. We are also experiencing increased interest from public and private sector end users coupled to raised demand for office space.

Chris Riley adds:
“Thanks to continued investment in product development and plant, we are well positioned to take advantage of any upturn in the market.”

VERCO is rolling out new brands in seating and desking this year; three new ranges are being launched at the first Design Prima show (London; May 17th to 19th).

VERCO is showing on Stand G27.

Texas Adopts Extremely Limited Warranties for New Home Construction

The leadership of Texas has stooped to the lowest set of warranty standards for new home construction. It is a shame they hold such little regard for the largest investment of a Texan's lifetime

(PRWEB) May 6, 2022 -- The newly created Texas Residential Construction Commission (TRCC pronounced "trick") approved extremely limited new home warranty standards for home construction in Texas. The warranty which must be provided by all new homebuilders becomes effective June 1. These standards have been in work for almost a year, yet fall short of providing adequate protection for new homebuyers.


According to a review, by Homeowners Against Deficient Dwellings, the standards allow for cracks in the walls, in the foundation, and in the exterior of the home which consumer groups and the general public deems unreasonable. Homeowners must also correctly maintain the water content around their foundation or risk voiding the warranty. These are only a few of the many serious flaws in the standards that will be imposed on new homebuyers.

"The leadership of Texas has stooped to the lowest set of warranty standards for new home construction. It is a shame they hold such little regard for the largest investment of a Texan's lifetime." says John Cobarruvias President HADD Texas.

The warranty standards can be found at the TRCC's website http://www.trcc.state.tx.us. The TRCC is conducting informational seminars on the standards across the state. The schedule can be found at http://www.trcc.state.tx.us/links/Sandy%20Warranty%20Schedule.pdf

HADD's review of the warranty can be found at http://www.hadd.com/documents/warrantyreview.pdf

SoftPoint Industries Introduces Asper Grit Non Skid Additive for Paints and Coatings

Asper Grit is a new, polmeric, non-skid additive that is harder than other polymers used for this application. Asper Grit is also lighter than sand which reduces settling when mixed into paints Asper Grit is free of crystalline silica and is economically priced.

Wilmington, DE (PRWEB) May 5, 2022 -- SoftPoint Industries today announced the availability of Asper Grit polymeric particles for non-skid applications. Asper Grit represents the latest in polymer technology and offers several advantages over conventional non-skid additives such as micronized waxes, silica sands, and aluminum oxides. Asper Grit is derived from a thermoset polymer and is harder than the waxes. It is lighter than both silica sand and aluminum oxide which reduces its tendency to settle. Unlike virtually all other additives, Asper Grit is clear and can be used with any color paint.

“We screened dozens of additives before selecting Asper Grit as the best in class for this application” said Dr. Richard Porter, the company’s founder. “We also utilize a special grinding technique to create angular particles that provide an aggressive non-skid surface. An independent test lab measured a significant increase in the COF (coefficient of friction) of paint samples prepared with Asper Grit. The dry COF was measured at 0.85, which is well above the recommended ADA level of 0.5.”

Asper Grit is designed for use in most floor coating applications. These include marine areas such as boat decks, outdoor patios and balconies, as well as household areas like garage floors, pool decks, and basements. Since the particles are compatible with most urethane, epoxy and acrylic coatings, they can be used on most any surface appropriate for these resins, including concrete, wood, fiberglass, steel, etc. The particles can be mixed into the coating prior to application or applied using the broadcast technique.

Asper Grit is conveniently packaged in a tube with a shaker top for easy dispensing. The shaker top features both a wide opening for pouring and a sifter opening that is ideal for sprinkling the product onto a painted surface. Asper Grit is economically priced at $12.99 per pint and is available today for sale exclusively on the company’s website www.softsandrubber.com.

About the Company
SoftPoint Industries Inc. is a privately held company incorporated in Delaware. The company is the exclusive provider of SoftSand® rubber particles for paints and coatings.

Home Technologies Nabs 8th Position in Nationwide Top 100 Ranking - Only Washington State Company to Make List; Focused Regional Expansion Cited

Home Technologies, Inc., one of the nations leading residential systems integrators, has had its standing certified with recognition as North America’s 8th largest company of this type, based upon an annual survey conducted by CE Pro Magazine, a leading industry trade publication.

Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) May 5, 2022 -- Home Technologies, Inc., one of the nations leading residential systems integrators, has had its standing certified with recognition as North America’s 8th largest company of this type, based upon an annual survey conducted by CE Pro Magazine, a leading industry trade publication. The survey uses company revenues to rank the top 100 firms in the U.S. In 2004 Home Technologies reported more than $11.7M in revenue to secure one of the top ten positions and to become Washington-states only firm to make the Top 100 list. CE Pro research confirms that residential systems is a growing industry, with the Top 100 firms showing gross custom revenues of $574 million and the average CE Pro 100 firm producing $5.6 million in revenues in 2004.

“2004 was a banner year for our business and we are pleased to see the first phase of our expansion strategy begin to pay off in terms of national recognition,” stated Home Technologies CEO and Chairman of the Board Lee Travis. In 2004 Home Technologies was also named one of Washington States fastest growing private companies. Travis attributes the company’s rapid growth and success to its innovative strategy and growing consumer demand for wired homes. “Consumer demand for technology in the home is up and we’ve found that builders and consumers alike are searching for an integrated solution provider.” Travis continued, “We’ve worked hard to uniquely position Home Technologies as the go-to, single-source company for integrated design, installation and professional service which dramatically simplifies the purchasing and installation process.”

About Home Technologies, Inc.
Home Technologies, Inc., headquartered in Bellevue, Washington, is a privately held corporation founded in 2001 to solve the inherent problems in the residential systems integration market. This rapidly growing, highly fragmented space includes dealers and product suppliers offering a wide variety of installation and service standards. The impact is confusion and complications for buyers faced with standards that vary from company-to-company and installer-to-installer.

The New Competitive Edge in Industrial Equipment: The Direct-Drive Air Compressor

Those who demand optimum performance of an air compressor system capitalize on the advantages of less moving parts

Michigan City, IN (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) May 4, 2022 -- In a quest to wring every ounce of performance from a manufacturing or processing plant, every piece of equipment must operate at maximum output with minimal maintenance. Realizing that less moving parts translates into greater reliability and increased efficiency engineers requiring an air compressor are now turning to today's new direct-drive systems.


The reasons for this shift are apparent. Air compressor belts stretch over time and require adjustment of the pulleys. Belts also occasionally break, bringing production to a halt. Gears fare only marginally better, requiring constant lubrication while suffering parasitic losses. Once the teeth wear down, replacement gears must be installed while production waits.

"Gears and belts have persisted for a surprisingly long time because it's the least expensive and most flexible way of building machinery," observes Steve Van Loan, President of Sullivan-Palatek, a manufacturer of direct-drive rotary screw air compressors. "But businesses now operate with scalpel-thin operating margins where any break in production can put you 'in the red.' In such environments, the advantages of direct drive prove invaluable."

While the majority of electric air compressors in the 5-100 hp range are belt or gear-driven, the Sullivan-Palatek air compressor system utilizes a direct-drive rotary screw which eliminates many unnecessary moving parts such as gears and pulleys. Sullivan-Palatek compressors also employ larger rotors in the air-end assemblies that, in effect, offer a "higher displacement" so that they turn slower. The net result is extended service life while delivering more air at higher pressures using lower horsepower.

The simplified design advantage of having the electric motor directly drive the rotary compressing unit also translates into electrical cost savings up to 8% over compressors that employ intermediary drives.

Given less maintenance, more up-time, and greater operating efficiency, direct drive air compressors allow plant and facility managers to concentrate on achieving peak performance.

Sullivan-Palatek manufactures electric and diesel driven rotary screw air compressors, along with a complete line of accessories.

When is it Time to Call the Professional?

For most Do-It-Yourself (DIY) home project managers, the most difficult decision is to know when to give the professionals a call to come complete a task and when to complete it yourself.

(PRWEB) May 3, 2022 -- For most Do-It-Yourself (DIY) home project managers, the most difficult decision is to know when to give the professionals a call to come complete a task and when to complete it yourself. The reason we like to do our own home upgrades or an addition is always a pretty internal and selfish reason. We want to save money and we want to be able to say, “I did it myself.” How many times have you been to a friendly dinner party and the topic of home improvement projects come up? Ultimately, it becomes a barrage of sentences that all contain these simple statements, “I did it myself.” or “We did it ourselves.” I must confess that I am also guilty of this. This is why we always have the more informative conversations with people at the local hardware and supply stores. Both parties in the conversation understand the need to DIY and the communication process flows without any issues.


Have you ever had complications with a project and wished you had called someone instead of finishing it yourself? I have, here is an example:

My wife informed me that the dishwasher was broken, I answered her by saying, “Let me have a look at it before you call anyone, okay?” She would humor me and let me look at something I have no idea, other than the basic theory of operation, how it works! I want to be the hero in my mind, the all knowing of my own kingdom. I don’t want to let someone else come into my own kingdom and fix something! However, eventually the dishes would pile up waiting for the washer to be fixed and I would be letting a few informal adjectives slip out of my mouth as I looked for tools, only because I didn’t know how to fix it, let alone, find the problem. My wife, the good woman that she is, would then politely call, after a period of pre-calculated time on her part, a repair man and schedule to have the washer fixed. She would then inform me at a later time that day of the future repair schedule for the appliance. Timing is everything in that situation isn’t it? Now back to my original statement, “the most difficult decision is to know when to give the professionals a call.” Well the answer is simple, when we are over our head and out of our league in a project. The definition of the previous sentence is a difficult trial in our own mind set along side our egos for the DIY home project managers. My wife, in the example, followed the definition to that sentence and didn’t realize it. As you read the rest of this article, place yourself in your own project and ask yourself the questions in each of these steps.

The first step is to remove your self from the project and evaluate it from an outside prospective. This must be done. If you have trouble accomplishing this, ask yourself how your spouse or good friend would view this project. What is the real objective? In the example, my wife just wanted the dishes to be washed in the dishwasher. My objective was to fix the dishwasher to be able to handle the loads of dishes. The difference is that she had the true objective, to wash the dishes in the dish washer. My objective was to fix the appliance. So you see that removing yourself from the project and evaluating the situation, can help you define the true objective. In addition, make sure that the project will not void or compromise any existing warranties. Do you have a clear objective of the project looking at it from an outside prospective?

The second step is to know your own ability. Do you have a history with the type of project you are working on? If not, did you do your research and homework prior to executing the project physically? How much of the project do you really know? In the example, my wife who already placed herself in step one by default, clearly saw that I did not have a past history or that I did not do any type of research prior to physically executing the project. She knew I was flying blind, armed with only theories of operation so that I could sound intelligent when talking about the project. Recognizing this, she allowed me time to do the research, and saw that my direction was not headed towards the desired results. She saw that I did not have the skill to fix the appliance. Do you have the ability to plan and/or understand fully the project execution and the steps order to complete the project correctly?

The third step is to know if you have the correct tools. If you did do your research and you do know how to properly execute a project, evaluate if you have the proper tools. Do not take short cuts and use tools in a different manner than they were designed for. Make sure that if you do purchase new tools, that you completely understand how to use them. Along this same line, if the project requires a certification of inspection, this also falls in the same category as a tool needed to complete the project. In the example, I did not have all the tools needed to even troubleshoot the problem, which led to a majority of my frustration and creative use of adjectives. Do you have the correct tools or can you get them?

The fourth step is to evaluate a proper time frame to compete the project. Establish a time frame that is realistic. Allow yourself error and determine how much slack time you can afford before the project becomes a burden to the household. In the example, my wife knew that those dishes would have to be done soon. We were washing them in the sink temporarily, but that’s not why we purchased a five hundred dollar dishwasher. The money was spent as an investment in the utility of the appliance and not to become a project. Keeping this in mind, she had something inside her that said this project needs to be completed now. What determined that? I do not know, but the time was set and the phone call was made. Is the project going to be completed on time or is the project avoiding becoming “the burden?”

If you answered “no” to any of these questions in the four steps, you need to call a professional to help you finish your project as my wife did. By the way, in the example, the problem our dishwasher had was that a ball check-valve was stuck and prevented it from physically shifting into the drain cycle. Would you have been able to determine that? I thought it was an electrical issue in the controller.

A New Window Into Design

A Portland, Oregon-based company is bringing a new “esthetic” to daily environments

(PRWEB) May 3, 2022 -- Stained glass isn’t just for churches anymore. But it can bring you a taste of the world to come. By making glass an essential element of the design process, Esthetic Accents has changed the way architects, interior designers and other design professionals can see the environments in which we live and work. Mary Spear, the company’s founder and CEO, sees possibilities for using “custom architectural stained glass in extraordinary new ways, offering a truly versatile yet very affordable design option for commercial and residential settings.”


Inspired by cathedral windows, the glass offers stunning opportunities for adding depth and beauty to any installation.

Inspired by the past but looking to the future, the Portland-based firm is bringing exciting new design options to both the consumer and commercial markets, not only here but to everywhere there is a need. With a presence on the World Wide Web, Esthetic Accents serves clients wherever they are located.

The technological breakthroughs the firm offers provide an extremely durable form of stained glass that can safely be used in windows, doors, sidelights, shower and hot tub enclosures, cabinetry, gates, balcony and stair railings; it be incorporated into walls, partitions and casework. Because each piece is a custom design, themes can be carried throughout entire rooms, matching doors and cabinets, sidelights and windows, or garage door with the front gate.

The new generation of stained glass uses real glass, just as traditional tiles do, but the similarity stops there. Traditional methods for making stained glass use copper foil or lead came to hold the pieces of glass together. Neither method is very durable. Instead, zinc came is used to produce a far stronger structure. For applications where extra strength is needed and energy efficiency is of concern, the stained glass can be produced as an insert, a process that seals the stained glass between two panes of tempered glass. Inserts can be ordered in a wide range of thicknesses, making it possible to install custom stained glass in virtually all brands of doors and windows. And because they don’t leak, inserts can be used outdoors and in applications that expose them to water.

Design freedom is a key to understanding why stained glass will now become a more practical as well as aesthetically pleasing choice. Artisan stained glass creates designs using stock bevels and bevel clusters that make it necessary to develop a design driven by existing bevels. Esthetic Accents creates custom bevels, both clear and colored, eliminating any limits on the design process. Through electroplating, the came, which is the metal portion of the stained glass, can be finished to create a more contemporary look or to blend with fixtures or hardware. There are several electroplated finishes available in addition to the typical dark gray/black finish.

Esthetic Accents design professionals combine personalized service with the convenience of the Internet to provide excellent customer service nation-wide. Their on-line showroom and design center, along with an exceptionally knowledgeable design staff (available in-person, online, or at toll-free at 866.503.7687) makes navigating the design process a source of wonder while offering unprecedented ease of use...

This product is affordable for emerging businesses, average homeowners, and cost-conscious interior designers. As Mary Spear tells us: “Esthetic Accents is making innovation practical for anyone looking to make the places where they live and work more beautiful.”

Esthetic Accents is dedicated to bringing the amazing design element of stained glass to all of today's interiors - commercial buildings as well as residential spaces in a cost-effective and imaginative way.

Look for Esthetic Accents at the HD2005 Expo and Conference, booth 3080, on May 5-7 and at the 2005 Kitchen/Bath Industry Show & Conference, booth 9004, on May 10-12. Both events are being held in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Esthetic Accents design center is located at 1225 SE Grand Ave. Portland Or. 97214 PH. (503) 227-7687, Fax (503) 236-8561 or toll free 1-866-503-7687. Visit their website at www.estheticaccents.com.

Homebuilder Buying Group Achieves Size of Top-50 Builder

Significant milestone helps Builder Sourcing improve bottom line for builders and suppliers.

Denver, May (PRWEB) May 3, 2022 -- Builder Sourcing Corporation, a buying group of independent homebuilders and select, high-quality suppliers, has grown to the equivalent size of a top-50 builder. Its size and growth continues to attract builders and suppliers, creating momentum that has translated into significant savings for builders and increased market share for suppliers.


Builder Sourcing provides a new way for homebuilders and their suppliers to collaborate, benefiting the bottom lines of both. As members of the Builder Sourcing buying group, homebuilders gain much of the same buying power as national builders, allowing them to lower costs while maintaining or even improving product quality. At the same time, suppliers strengthen and increase their market share with some of the best independent homebuilders.

“Builder Sourcing is a way for builders and suppliers to work together as a unified buying group. We have lowered costs for our builders and increased market share and account penetration for our suppliers. A true win-win scenario,” said Charles Schneider, president of Builder Sourcing. “We are very excited about reaching this major milestone. Our next goal is to be equivalent in size to a top-25 builder.”

By creating scale and buying power, Builder Sourcing levels the playing field for homebuilders and allows them to benefit from much of the same buying discounts and programs as large national builders. Collaborative purchasing makes it easier for independent builders to stay competitive in an industry dominated by big builders, while retaining the individuality that makes their homes sought after. Builder Sourcing takes on the administrative role of comparing costs, negotiating the best possible deals, and handling all of the paperwork, leaving members more time to focus on building their own business.

“We are able to capitalize on the purchasing power of a national homebuilder. Our direct construction costs have been reduced and we are able to continue working with our existing building systems and practices,” said Michael New, president of New Homes, Inc.

Supplier members are more successful pursuing opportunities with independent builders, a selling channel that is often difficult and costly to penetrate. Builder Sourcing brings together builders and suppliers who are top-level decision makers, paving the way for increased business. Plus, Builder Sourcing builds long-lasting relationships with a select group of suppliers, so they can provide significant value, volume and stability to their businesses.

“Builder Sourcing provides us with greater access to a network of homebuilders who will benefit from our broad range of products and services. Their commitment to developing long-term alliances with builders in the top markets is directly in-line with our strategic goals,” said Jimmy Sisco, General Manager of Atrium Windows & Doors.

Builder Sourcing’s founder, Charles Schneider, was formerly a senior executive with MDC Holdings Inc., one of the nation’s largest homebuilders that builds under the name Richmond American Homes. Schneider was responsible for national purchasing, where he implemented programs that leveraged the company’s size, creating large and important supply relationships that significantly lowered costs. Combined with more than 25 years of supply-chain and business management, Builder Sourcing built its foundation on this experience and success.

As they continue to expand their membership base, Builder Sourcing will attend the upcoming PCBC 2005, which is June 1-3 in San Francisco. To meet with Builder Sourcing representatives at the show or to have them contact you directly, please contact them at e-mail protected from spam bots or 877-367-2010.

When is it Time to Call the Professional?

For most Do-It-Yourself (DIY) home project managers, the most difficult decision is to know when to give the professionals a call to come complete a task and when to complete it yourself.

(PRWEB) May 3, 2022 -- For most Do-It-Yourself (DIY) home project managers, the most difficult decision is to know when to give the professionals a call to come complete a task and when to complete it yourself. The reason we like to do our own home upgrades or an addition is always a pretty internal and selfish reason. We want to save money and we want to be able to say, “I did it myself.” How many times have you been to a friendly dinner party and the topic of home improvement projects come up? Ultimately, it becomes a barrage of sentences that all contain these simple statements, “I did it myself.” or “We did it ourselves.” I must confess that I am also guilty of this. This is why we always have the more informative conversations with people at the local hardware and supply stores. Both parties in the conversation understand the need to DIY and the communication process flows without any issues.

Have you ever had complications with a project and wished you had called someone instead of finishing it yourself? I have, here is an example:

My wife informed me that the dishwasher was broken, I answered her by saying, “Let me have a look at it before you call anyone, okay?” She would humor me and let me look at something I have no idea, other than the basic theory of operation, how it works! I want to be the hero in my mind, the all knowing of my own kingdom. I don’t want to let someone else come into my own kingdom and fix something! However, eventually the dishes would pile up waiting for the washer to be fixed and I would be letting a few informal adjectives slip out of my mouth as I looked for tools, only because I didn’t know how to fix it, let alone, find the problem. My wife, the good woman that she is, would then politely call, after a period of pre-calculated time on her part, a repair man and schedule to have the washer fixed. She would then inform me at a later time that day of the future repair schedule for the appliance. Timing is everything in that situation isn’t it? Now back to my original statement, “the most difficult decision is to know when to give the professionals a call.” Well the answer is simple, when we are over our head and out of our league in a project. The definition of the previous sentence is a difficult trial in our own mind set along side our egos for the DIY home project managers. My wife, in the example, followed the definition to that sentence and didn’t realize it. As you read the rest of this article, place yourself in your own project and ask yourself the questions in each of these steps.

The first step is to remove your self from the project and evaluate it from an outside prospective. This must be done. If you have trouble accomplishing this, ask yourself how your spouse or good friend would view this project. What is the real objective? In the example, my wife just wanted the dishes to be washed in the dishwasher. My objective was to fix the dishwasher to be able to handle the loads of dishes. The difference is that she had the true objective, to wash the dishes in the dish washer. My objective was to fix the appliance. So you see that removing yourself from the project and evaluating the situation, can help you define the true objective. In addition, make sure that the project will not void or compromise any existing warranties. Do you have a clear objective of the project looking at it from an outside prospective?

The second step is to know your own ability. Do you have a history with the type of project you are working on? If not, did you do your research and homework prior to executing the project physically? How much of the project do you really know? In the example, my wife who already placed herself in step one by default, clearly saw that I did not have a past history or that I did not do any type of research prior to physically executing the project. She knew I was flying blind, armed with only theories of operation so that I could sound intelligent when talking about the project. Recognizing this, she allowed me time to do the research, and saw that my direction was not headed towards the desired results. She saw that I did not have the skill to fix the appliance. Do you have the ability to plan and/or understand fully the project execution and the steps order to complete the project correctly?

The third step is to know if you have the correct tools. If you did do your research and you do know how to properly execute a project, evaluate if you have the proper tools. Do not take short cuts and use tools in a different manner than they were designed for. Make sure that if you do purchase new tools, that you completely understand how to use them. Along this same line, if the project requires a certification of inspection, this also falls in the same category as a tool needed to complete the project. In the example, I did not have all the tools needed to even troubleshoot the problem, which led to a majority of my frustration and creative use of adjectives. Do you have the correct tools or can you get them?

The fourth step is to evaluate a proper time frame to compete the project. Establish a time frame that is realistic. Allow yourself error and determine how much slack time you can afford before the project becomes a burden to the household. In the example, my wife knew that those dishes would have to be done soon. We were washing them in the sink temporarily, but that’s not why we purchased a five hundred dollar dishwasher. The money was spent as an investment in the utility of the appliance and not to become a project. Keeping this in mind, she had something inside her that said this project needs to be completed now. What determined that? I do not know, but the time was set and the phone call was made. Is the project going to be completed on time or is the project avoiding becoming “the burden?”

If you answered “no” to any of these questions in the four steps, you need to call a professional to help you finish your project as my wife did. By the way, in the example, the problem our dishwasher had was that a ball check-valve was stuck and prevented it from physically shifting into the drain cycle. Would you have been able to determine that? I thought it was an electrical issue in the controller.

Concrete Washout Systems, Inc. Goes Rampless

Innovative rampless Concrete Washout Systems™ container to compliment and add versatility for jobsites.

Elk Grove, CA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) May 2, 2022 -- Concrete Washout Systems, Inc., (CWS) announced today that it has developed a new rampless version of its pioneering and patent pending product, Concrete Washout Systems™ container.

The new rampless container is essentially a stripped version of the flagship Concrete Washout Systems™ container, with the ramps removed. The new container will have more holding capacity at six (6) cubic yards and have the ability to hold more washwater on the jobsite, up to 400 gallons more. The new rampless version can be configured with hook points for craning the box onto commercial high-rises to add even more options for clients.

"The rampless box was put into production to continue providing our customers with the best available technology and as a direct result of feedback obtained from the customers and end users on the jobsites," stated Mark Jenkins, President of Concrete Washout Systems, Inc. "The rampless box is not a replacement for our flagship ramped box, but a complimentary tool when more than one box is needed on a jobsite or when there are no concrete pumps being used. The added versatility will allow our customers the opportunity to use our patent pending systems on various applications where before, they had very little if any compliant options available," added Mr. Jenkins.

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 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.

The Crack Team Foundation Repair Specialists Announces Second Boston-Area Location

Foundation Cracks a Common Problem for Homeowners; The Crack Team Offers Permanent, Cost-Effective Solution

Braintree, MA (PRWEB) May 2, 2022 -– The Crack Team foundation repair specialists announces the grand opening of a second Boston-area location, just over one year after the successful launch of the first. The company, based in St. Louis with additional branches in Chicago, Detroit and Kansas City, is currently celebrating its 20th year in business. The Crack Team specializes in fixing foundation cracks with a permanent, cost-effective solution using its proprietary injection-system treatment. The newest location, in Braintree, MA, serves Middlesex, Norfolk, Plymouth and Barnstable Counties. The existing Hampstead, NH office serves Rockingham, Hillsborough, Merrimack, Middlesex and Essex Counties.

“Generally, homeowners don’t realize that a cracked foundation is a common problem,” notes John McCarthy of The Crack Team’s Braintree location. McCarthy says that in most cases, a crack in a poured-concrete foundation does not indicate structural problems. Still, it is the source of leakage that can cause a wet basement. He recommends that homeowners check their basements for cracks now, early in the rainy season, when the ground frequently becomes saturated and water seeps in. “The end of winter means melting snow, and then we get hit with a rainy spring. Water takes the path of least resistance, and a lot of it will certainly find its way into basements through cracks,” he says. Treating the crack avoids the potential for water damage and significant expenses that are caused by a wet basement.

While no homeowner wants to find cracks in his or her basement, the problem is inherent in poured concrete foundations. A cracked foundation is not due to improper building practices or other construction-related activity. Instead, over time, the concrete naturally shrinks or shifts, causing cracks in new and old homes alike. Nevertheless, many homeowners are frantic when calling The Crack Team after finding a crack, leaky or not. “They expect elaborate, invasive, expensive repairs that usually aren’t necessary,” says McCarthy. The Crack Team repair is a cost-effective and minimally disruptive process. It takes approximately one hour to fill one foundation crack, and the average cost of a Crack Team repair is in the hundreds of dollars, as opposed to thousands charged by other companies. Cracks are permanently sealed when injected, and all work carries the fully transferable "Happy Crack" Life-of-Structure warranty.

“Homeowners, Realtors and inspectors have trusted The Crack Team for two decades,” says McCarthy. “I look forward to providing the same service to local residents.” For a free estimate in Middlesex, Norfolk, Plymouth and Barnstable Counties, contact John McCarthy at (781)843-0339 or 866-CRACK-TEAM. In Rockingham, Hillsborough, Merrimack, Middlesex and Essex Counties contact Rick Jackson at (603) 329-7888. For more information about The Crack Team, contact Cary Goldwasser at 866-HAPPY-CRACK.

Yahel Chirinian

The designer’s incredible new house in India. New creations in exclusivity at Monsoon Heritage beginning June 13.

(PRWEB) May 2, 2022 -- VIA met up with Yahel Chirinian at the Monsoon Heritage studio she runs with her German partner, environmentalist Doris Zacheres. Facing the rice fields, in Goa we discuss her vision for her new creations she will present in June.

Even those who are usually bored by new-contemporary-neo-design-and- designer find Yahel’s works stunning, deep and visionary. She's talentful, beautiful, intense and eccentric, she's highly intelligent, irresistible and fiercely private. From her creative studio in Goa she redesigns the future.

What does it matter if the work is beautiful in configuration, generous in space, free from clutter, sophisticated in details, pure in materials unless it reveals the soul?

To feel serene, stable, at peace at a place, to remove disorder and vulgarity from sight, Yahel Chirinian needs nature. “The work of nature never ceases to amaze me” she says, ““the tree, man's best friend, is a fabulous material. It terrifies by its massivement but its longevity reassures.”

She works in search of the very essence of the material that she values so highly. Thus this sentiment takes a special form and becomes an object close to the senses, which allows wood to remain wood, brings light closer to light, leaves the horizon open and gives space its dimension. Harmony between figures - no opposites, no clutter, no tension, no fragments. The finished object involves the whole body and the senses.

”I love touch and texture. In a dehumanized world, I strive for the real and the human,” Yahel says.

The ability to be in touch with reality enables her to react against a univers which has become too virtual for her. She’s not tempted by technological feats, by the digital and micro processing era, any more than she is by mass production. Each object must provoke not only an emotion, but also a feeling of fulfillment and true sensuality, which makes you immediately feel you want to touch it. No doubt she has suffered from not being caressed enough. Today, she creates objects that cry out to be caressed.

Creating with your hands objects which reflect your unconscious self-image, exorcises an existential fear. This osmosis with natural elements provides an exceptional, inexhaustible and regenerating source of inspiration. Indeed, tree and man resemble each other.

”The power of these emotional objects goes back to their own history, and is engraved in their very fibers, far beyond the function I give them” she says and adds “the materialistic culture of perverted forms fears simplicity”.

However talented, passionate, committed and heroic one is, it does not matter what one says or makes; creating means suffering the distress of irredeemable failure but she wants her work to make people dream. There is no further need to compel, the direction becomes clear. It must be a source of pleasure and sensuality, a place to which anybody can come and for a while be free from thinking about what he is going to do.
“I’m a perfectionniste” she says “you don't just get to design in which environment will live people, but you design the whole world. Human beings really do want to connect.”.

Yahel Chirinian creates a new concept of open living space, urban sanctuary and ambiente experience…..a new relationship between a new design and a new lifestyle. Contemporary and mutant.

Noise Pollution Creates Stress, Anxiety, and Health Concerns: DIY Soundproofing by Homeowners Now Possible with Acoustic Vinyl Barrier Products

Although noise pollution is a growing problem, a homeowner can now find relief by using sound blocking and sound absorbing products to make the home a peaceful refuge from the noise of the outside world.

Chambersburg, PA (PRWEB) May 1, 2022 -- American Micro Industries, Inc. (www.soundprooffoam.com) has announced a complete line of home soundproofing products designed specifically for the DIY homeowner. Noise pollution has become a problem not only in urban areas but suburban and rural as well. Homes that once backed up to woods and cornfields now have highways almost in the backyard.


In urban settings the sounds of automobiles, tractor trailers, construction, airplanes, trains, voices and cell phones are creating levels of noise that are not only distracting and annoying but a health concern as well.

Recent studies show that prolonged exposure to noise actually results in adverse health effects ranging from sleep disturbances, increased blood pressure, decreased learning ability, elevated stress hormones, and loss of productivity. Some individuals complain of increased heartbeat, digestive cramps, breaking out in a cold sweat, or uncontrollable trembling or shivering. Clearly, the levels of noise to which many people are exposed every day is not only unwanted but actually a serious problem.

The average homeowner or condo resident can’t do much about the noise in public spaces, but at the end of the day, inside their own home, there are ways to block unwanted outside noise and create an environment of calm and quiet within.

Mike Crabtree, Acoustic Sales Consultant with AMI, notes the increase in inquiries from DIY homeowners. “We believe we have developed the right combination of materials and installation methods to allow the average DIY enthusiast to tackle most soundproofing projects”, he comments. “Our recent introduction of QUIETWRAP, designed to quiet noisy pipes, has been particularly successful.”

A few facts about sound are helpful in understanding how to block or absorb unwanted noise:
• Sound travels in the form of waves.
• Sound waves can be reflected by some surfaces causing echo or reverberation. Hard, smooth surfaces such as bare walls reflect the most sound waves.
• Sound waves can be partially absorbed by some substances. Carpet partially absorbs the sound of footfall (people walking) and more sound waves are absorbed in a room with furniture, carpet, and drapes. Porous materials with small air cells absorb are good sound absorbers. However, some sound waves travel on through the porous materials.
• Sound waves can be blocked by some substances. Traditionally, lead was the most effective sound-blocking substance available because of its extreme density. Recently, lead-free barrier products have been developed that are more dense and more effective than lead at blocking sound.
• Acoustic Vinyl Barrier Products block sound waves. Acoustic vinyl barrier material is composed of sheet vinyl impregnated or “fortified” with a heavy substance so that it is actually more dense than a sheet of lead and excellent at blocking sound.

Two acoustic vinyl barrier products now available from American Micro Industries, Inc. are Quietbarrier and Econobarrier. So dense that they actually block sound waves, Quietbarrier and Econobarrier prevent sound from passing through a floor, wall, or ceiling to an adjacent area. They keep the outside sounds out and the inside sounds in.

If the loud airborne noise of traffic, voices, music, or TV is the main problem, Quietbarrier is the material of choice. If the noise is not loud but still audible, Econobarrier, the lighter-weight version, may be sufficient. Both products can be installed on existing walls or attached to the studs during new construction. Because the barrier material is black vinyl, resurfacing with sheetrock or paneling is needed to produce a finished wall surface. Weight is a factor to be considered (Quietbarrier weighs 64 lbs. per 4 X 8 ft. sheet and Econobarrier weighs 32 lbs.) so installation, although not complicated, is best accomplished by two people. At AMI, rigorous in-house product testing directed by the staff has resulted in a simple step-by-step method for installing these barrier products and resurfacing the wall at the same time. The steps are clearly shown at www.acousticalsource.com/how-to-soundproof-a-wall.html, “How to Soundproof a Wall: Installation Instructions.”

Although noise pollution is a growing problem, a homeowner can now find relief by using sound blocking and sound absorbing products to make the home a peaceful refuge from the noise of the outside world.

For additional DIY home soundproofing products available for walls, floors, ceilings, pipes, and windows, call American Micro Industries, Inc. toll-free at 1-800-558-2058 Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM, or go to www.soundpooffoam.com. You can also Email them.

American Micro Industries, Inc., a privately held company founded by veteran Michael E. Lehman in 1995, is located in Chambersburg, PA. AMI is a manufacturer and distributor of American-made acoustical and soundproofing products for DIY homeowners, residential, commercial, marine, and industrial applications.

Marshfield Aces Attend ACE Hardware Convention in Orlando
