Scaffold Manufacturer is at the Forefront of Industry Advertising Methods

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

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

Universal Scaffold’s website is geared to attract scaffolding users in all segments of the scaffold industry by providing information on frame scaffold, system scaffold, tube & clamp scaffold and steel plank. Core customers in the industrial maintenance sector and commercial/residential contractors have different needs that drive them to investigate scaffolding acquisitions independently. These needs are met by individualizing each section of the Universal Scaffolding website to basic requirements for each scaffold segment. The “Overstocked Warehouse” section will provide residential contractors with the opportunity to save money on scaffolding items that are currently in surplus. The system scaffold page and steel plank page will allow industrial scaffold users quick reference points to determine their requirements. Engineering and safety pages will provide commercial contractors with the unique capabilities and benefits of the Universal support staff.

The advent of the internet has allowed contractors the ability to procure their product requirements directly from the manufacturer. By focusing internet marketing efforts toward locations without distributor representation; Universal Scaffold is capable of providing a much wider regional base of end users, with high quality steel scaffold at competitive prices. These direct to the manufacturer capabilities provided by the Universal Manufacturing web site, aides in the acquirement of Universal product to all customers while shielding current distributors, allowing them to maintain their protected regions. This marketing effort helps Universal’s valuable distributors facilitate the supply and representation the Universal brand of scaffold products without unnecessary competition.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Druml Group Launches Online Invoice Collection Application for Construction Industry

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

About Druml Group:
Founded in 1993, Druml Group is a West Coast-based consulting firm that specializes in providing business, financial, risk management, insurance, and bonding services to the construction industry. Comprised of former owners, managers, and CFOs of construction firms, the company is uniquely qualified to recognize business and financial problems and deploy solutions. The company is a recognized leader in providing innovative solutions to answer the needs of its clients. Druml Group is headquartered in Foster City, California.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The NARI CKBR program lasts for 15 weeks, consisting of a intensive study program covering all aspects of the Kitchen and Bath design, renovation, and construction. The participants are tested on their knowledge of all associated trades (plumbing, electrical, HVAC, framing, tile, etc), all areas of proper design/layout, project management, and product selection. The grueling course work ends with an eight-hour cumulative final examination.

“Nationally there are only a handful Certified Kitchen and Bath Remodelers, “ said John Czarnecki, CKBR Operations Manager. “We strongly encourage our staff to continue to expand their knowledge base and set the bar higher within the industry. The NARI certification programs are a great way to do this. It not only improves our company, but helps the industry progress and the clients to choose a qualified design/construction company.”

Bob Garrity and Zach McWilliams Obtain Certified Lead Carpenter Designation

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

American Clay has also added these offerings this year:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Atkins Uses E-Learning from SkillSoft to Create Bespoke Courses

Atkins - the world’s third largest consulting engineering and architectural group - is using e-learning to create bespoke Health & Safety, HR and systems courses and to deliver generic training in desktop IT skills.

(PRWEB) February 25, 2022 -- Rather than taking the option to use its existing learning management system (LMS) Atkins elected to reduce its in-house support costs by having the courses - from SkillSoft - delivered via the supplier’s in-built learning management platform (SkillPort). As well as hosting the generic e-learning content, SkillPort will run an online mentoring service; provide pre and post assessment and test preps; facilitate the in-house creation of Atkins-specific e-learning; and enable access to content provided by specialist external suppliers such as Blue Slate.

“We opted for SkillSoft because they demonstrated a clear understanding of our needs and took time to get to know our business,” said Barry Smith, Service Delivery Manager at Atkins. “The pre-sales support that we received was of a very high standard and gave us confidence in their ability to deliver.

“The SkillPort product meets all of our requirements to deliver top quality training, globally, at a time that fits into our employees’ workloads. Our staff can access the system from the office, on the road or even from home.

“We are confident that we have made a wise choice – we have seen usage rates rocket; we get excellent support; and we can quickly upload new courses to meet the ever changing needs of the business.”

One of the biggest benefits for Atkins is the ability they now have to build their own in-house content using SkillSoft’s Course Customisation Toolkit (CCT). The CCT is proving to be a hugely cost-effective way for the company’s own training experts to respond immediately to the strategic needs of the business by creating company-specific e-learning content. This is being used to develop e-learning to deal with industry compliance issues and Health & Safety as well as to address the specific needs of a division or even a particular project.

Typically, Atkins can now build a bespoke course from scratch and make it available online within less than five days.

Approximately 160 SkillSoft courses have already been made available to 10,000 UK employees. The early feedback from users is so encouraging that Atkins is now looking at adding generic business skills content and rolling the e-learning out to Hong Kong, the Middle East and the US.

RICS Delivers New Global Website Using WebtraffIQ's Web Analytics

Web analytics agency WebtraffIQ http://www.webtraffiq.com, has been retained to monitor The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) newly delivered global website http://www.rics.org

London, UK (PRWEB) February 22, 2022 -- Web analytics agency WebtraffIQ http://www.webtraffiq.com, has been retained to monitor The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) newly delivered global website http://www.rics.org

RICS first signed up with WebtraffIQ in April 2002, and has signed them for another year. WebtraffIQ was chosen, based on the ability to integrate its web analytics suite into RICS new Microsoft Platform when it delivered its revamped website.

All data and analysis from the last three years has been retained. This proves extremely useful in comparing the performance, navigational trends and member interaction patterns between new and old websites, and also helped with the new design layout.

Marcos Richardson, European Director at WebtraffIQ comments, “Having a good and successful relationship over the past three years made WebtraffIQ a clear choice when the decision was made to choose a web traffic analyzer for 2005. Further to this WebtraffIQ was able to quickly integrate and develop its systems capabilities to be compatible with the new RICS Microsoft server platform (MIS).

Organizations that don’t offer e-commerce services such as RICS find that an online presence increases their global brand exposure and customer business interactions. This is underpinned by good user-centered design including usability, accessibility, ease of navigation and targeted marketing initiatives. To this avail; being able to see where, when and how visitors interact and transact using web analytics is crucial for business and marketing programs.

Cara McDonagh Head of New Media at RICS states, “We have over 100,000 members spread across 120 countries. The importance of understanding how our users access information and services and interact with the organization online is essential to providing a better offering to our audiences wherever they are based. WebtraffIQ is helping us achieve this goal.”

WebtraffIQ has developed several unique applications that provide important information for website designers, developers and marketers. WebtraffIQ Alerts is one such application, useful for the launch of new websites including design and web development platforms.

Stephen Mitchell, who manages web analytics at RICS New Media comments, “When maintaining such a large website, WebtraffIQ Alerts is useful because it can alert us by SMS and email to any pages that are not loading, or if there are broken links on each page for example. If any problems arise, our designers and developers are on-hand to systematically fix the problems.”

“We are very pleased to be retained by RICS for another year and will continue to give them a dedicated service. We are also excited about our successful integration with the RICS Microsoft platforms. In essence this means we now have another important platform to build our services upon, demonstrating that WebtraffIQ is flexible in working with emerging and evolving technology to accommodate clients’ complex bespoke and/or rudimentary requirements, “concludes Richardson.

Plaskoff Construction Named In Best Companies List

Local Contractor Ranked Number Five In Best Companies to Work For By Professional Remodeler Magazine

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 11, 2022 -- Plaskoff Construction was listed as one of the top 25 remodelers to work for in the United States by Professional Remodeler Magazine. Plaskoff Construction ranked number five of 25 companies that made the list.

The Reed Research Group, owners of Professional Remodeler Magazine, annually conduct an extensive study of remodeling firms nominated as one of the best companies to work for in the residential construction industry. The Reed staff examines information submitted by each nominated company, including average employee tenure, the number of female and minority employees, group benefits, and profit sharing offered.

Additionally, surveys are sent to a random number of each nominee's employees, who are asked to be forthright in their opinions about their employer. Surveys are sent directly to the employees to protect the respondents' anonymity.

“Being named number 5 in the top 25 remodeling companies to work for is the most important honor I could ever ask for,” said Matt Plaskoff, owner of Plaskoff Construction. “The secret is sharing information with your employees, treating them like a part of the team, involving them in decision making, and bringing the team together by spending social time together. We are the best because our employees are the best.”

Plaskoff also attributes the company’s above-average employee satisfaction and to taking chances as a company - such as Plaskoff Construction’s involvement in the hit ABC television show “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,” where Plaskoff serves as the shows Construction Consultant.

“Being a part of the “ABC Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” show has brought our team together in remarkable ways,” added Plaskoff. “The charitable aspects of the show have added a sense of pride and purpose that has penetrated all aspects of what we do- which I consider a rare gift.”

WorkOasis™ introduces Lean Six Sigma for Managing Contractors

FM Solutions, LLC announced today the availability of Six Sigma services for the facility management industry based on its WorkOasis™ technology platform.

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) February 9, 2022 -- FM Solutions, LLC announced today the availability of Six Sigma services for the facility management industry based on its WorkOasis™ technology platform. The application of Lean Six Sigma in the property management area represents a $60 billion improvement opportunity for US corporations.

The facility management function which includes processes for sourcing service contractors, handling service requests, and paying invoices, has been one of the least automated, measured and controlled functions within the enterprise. WorkOasis™ combines “Lean” service techniques to shorten service transaction time and “Six Sigma” quality methods to better measure and control facility management processes, resulting in improved responsiveness and reduce cost.

Corporate owners of large portfolios of distributed real estate will be able to contract with WorkOasis™ to perform a Lean Six Sigma audit of their current processes and receive a detailed process map and assessment of their operations and improvement opportunities. WorkOasis™ uses Six Sigma implementation partners and certified blackbelts to conduct the audits.

Bob Dickhaus, founder of FM Solutions and WorkOasis™ comments; “The application of Six Sigma techniques to the facility management function is a relatively new concept. Redesigning and automating paper based service processes can save corporate real estate owners 15-20% of their total operating budgets.

Jim Phillips, Six Sigma blackbelt and Partner of Ogmacon Service, states; “More and more, the world's best companies rely on a common understanding of the facilities operations strategy throughout the organization. WorkOasis’s approach of building competitive advantage through facility operational improvement cuts through the rhetoric and provides practical tools and concepts for building sound operating strategies that work.”

New Career Skills Opening the Path for Mature Career Changers

New Career Skills helps to address the shortage of skilled workers in the construction industry. Also giving individuals the opportunity to change career and have a less stressful and better paid job as a plumber.

(PRWEB) February 7, 2022 -- New Career Skills (NCS) provider of training in plumbing, carpentry and electrics for mature career changers, has launched a new ten-week plumbing course to address the skill shortage in the UK, enabling men and women of any age to change career with ease. The course which is the only one of its type in the UK is accredited by the Open College Network, the UK's foremost provider of accreditation services for adult learning.

The NCS plumbing course was launched in response to the withdrawal of City & Guilds 6988 plumbing qualification. This meant that those wishing to enter the plumbing trade from other careers would struggle to find a clear and time-efficient path to enter the industry. NCS’s course is an improved, updated and expanded version of the 6988.

As well as offering a complete change in lifestyle, plumbers’ hours of work are flexible as opposed to the regimented 9am-5pm of office jobs. The financial rewards of becoming a plumber have been well documented. Plumbers typically earn between £25,000 and £50,000 a year.

Historically, training to become a plumber was only open to school leavers (16-24 year olds), via job training and day release college courses, taking from two to five years to complete with low wages until graduation. For over 25 year olds, it was virtually impossible as most employers and colleges wouldn’t consider taking mature students on. Moreover, the traditional method of training was unsuitable for mature students and younger students keen to get going in a shorter time.

NCS is one of the few re-skilling providers to address these major flaws. NCS offer a flexible, blended learning programme which allows students to complete the theory part of their training at home using interactive materials and tutor support. Then, when ready, students can complete four separate one-week practical sessions at one of NCS’s nationwide Centres of Plumbing Excellence.

Following graduation, students are unlikely to be short of work. According to the Institute of Plumbers there are over 30,000 unfilled vacancies and this is growing rapidly as a result of house building being at its highest level for over 100 years.

The British Plumbing Employers Council estimates that 29,000 new plumbers will be needed in the next five years.

Furthermore, the average age of plumbers is currently quite high, meaning that more are leaving the industry than joining it. Colleges are estimated to only have about 3,000 trainee vacancies per annum of which it has been estimated that only 50% actually go on to work as plumbers.

Commenting, Tim Adderson, managing director, NCS, said: “There are other training providers offering courses such as the C&G; 6032, but as anybody in the industry knows, these certificates do not offer the breadth and depth of training to work to the NVQ2 or to add real value to most employers. With the plumbing course we have answered the needs of both industry and mature career changers, many who have work and family commitments and can’t afford to take weeks off work to train.”

NCS, established in 1998, is highly experienced in the requirements of the plumbing industry and the high standards it demands. “The company does not expect its students to walk out of its programmes and into your kitchen or bathroom, but sees itself as a provider of qualified and mature individuals with the confidence, knowledge and motivation to enter the industry and progress on to NVQ2 and over time to NVQ3. Employers can assume that our students have had the best training available, otherwise we don’t award them with an NCS certificate.”

NCS graduates have been employed by companies such as: British Gas, Plumb Local, Initial Building Services, Peoples Plumbers, Dyno Rod, Gas Care, Awesome Bathrooms & Plumbing, to name but a few.

The first step is to help graduates find employment within the industry; it is a resource that NCS hopes to continue developing in the coming year offering further career and employment advice. After the course, NCS encourages all graduates to return for further training for completion of their NVQ2, which is currently offered on block release. It should be a win-win situation with prospective employers having access to a pool of well-trained motivated mature career changers.

Feb 1 Deadline Ahead: Employers Must Post Injury & Illness Summaries by Feb 1, Safety.BLR.com Reminds Safety Managers

Clear a space on the company bulletin board. Safety.BLR.com reminds safety managers that OSHA regulations require that OSHA’s 300A form, a summary of all 2004 workplace illnesses and injuries, must be posted prominently in the workplace between February 1 and April 30 2005

Old Saybrook, CT (PRWEB) January 31, 2022 -- Clear a space on the company bulletin board, folks. OSHA regulations require that OSHA’s 300A form, a summary of all 2004 workplace illnesses and injuries, must be posted prominently in the workplace between February 1 and April 30 2005. Failure to comply with OSHA recordkeeping requirements could result in fines of $10,000 (some organizations are exempt because of size or type of business).

Steve Quilliam, editor at Safety.BLR.com, a website that makes safety training and compliance easier, explained some other changes in the new law, which went into effect for injuries occurring in 2003: “One of the most confusing concepts of recordkeeping has been restricted work. The new rule,” he explained, “clarifies the definition of restricted work or light duty and makes it easier to record those cases.” Restricted work activity occurs as the result of a work-related injury or illness that keeps an employee from doing the routine functions of the job or from working the full workday.

Quilliam points out another key difference: “OSHA is trying to better define work-related injuries, to ensure that cases clearly unrelated to work are excluded.” OSHA says that an injury or illness is considered work-related if an event or exposure in the work environment caused or contributed to the condition, or significantly aggravated a preexisting condition.

The 300A summary must list the total numbers of job-related deaths, injuries, and illnesses that occurred in 2004 and were logged on the OSHA 300 form. Employment information about annual average number of employees and total hours worked is also required.

Safety Meetings and Safety Talks
Business & Legal Reports, Inc.’s website, Safety.BLR.com, features hundreds of safety meetings – in PowerPoint®, outline, or talk formats — plus safety tools like checklists and clipart. Plain-English interpretations of all federal and state OSHA regulations are also provided.

Safety.BLR.com offers a free download of its members-only summary of OSHA Recordkeeping Requirements. To get the download go to http://www.blr.com/81001600/WBS560, or call 800-727-5257.

Sunstate Equipment Company Uses National Equipment Register to Combat Equipment Theft

Sunstate Equipment Company, a major equipment rental company in 8 southern states has registered its equipment fleet with the National Equipment Register (NER) in order to help Sunstate and its clients deter theft and increase the chances of recovering stolen equipment.

Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) January 31, 2022 -- Through its 24-hour hotline and the Internet, NER provides expert identification advice and ownership information from its databases of millions of equipment theft and ownership records to law enforcement seeking to identify suspicious equipment. NER will now be able to identify equipment belonging to Sunstate – even before a theft has been detected or reported.

Sunstate’s Corporate Risk Manager, Don Cash, noted that “theft is a significant problem for rental companies and their clients, particularly in southern states. Having closely observed NER’s development over the last two years Sunstate considers that NER’s unique services compliment our existing theft prevention efforts – it is also a very cost effective solution that can be implemented immediately and across our entire fleet.” Don Cash added “we only need to deter or recover one or two thefts for the service to pay for itself. It is also the right thing to do as it will positively impact our clients and the industry as a whole”.

All mobile Sunstate units are being marked with decals that clearly warn thieves that the equipment is registered on a national database used extensively by law enforcement, and that the chances of being detected while moving, storing or selling the equipment are greatly increased.

What if the thief removes the decal? “It doesn’t matter”, points out David Shillingford, president of NER, “the item is still registered on the database and can still be identified in a number of ways - and thieves knows this.” NER also encourages officers to investigate suspicious equipment through a national training program that explains the common ‘red flags’ displayed by stolen equipment and the basics of equipment identification.

NER now has over 1,000 law enforcement agencies using their databases regularly, which has already resulted in the recovery of over $4 million of stolen equipment.

About Sunstate
Since 1977, Sunstate Equipment Co. has provided construction, industrial, and special event companies with rental tools and equipment. Reliable service and dedication have helped clients get their job done efficiently and safely.

Renting a full line of quality, well-maintained equipment, from hand tools to heavy equipment, Sunstate has continued to grow from its Arizona home. Sunstate Equipment Co. currently has locations in California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.

Sunstate’s success stems from providing the highest level of service possible. Everyone in the Sunstate family works collectively to ensure orders are completed and delivered on time, all the time. This level of excellence permeates the entire organization.
