The Rose receives 2016 Jack Kemp Excellence in Affordable and Workforce Housing Award from the Urban Land Institute

Minneapolis, Minnesota, 2016-Nov-04 — /EPR CONSTRUCTION NEWS/ — PLACE is pleased to announce that The Rose and three sister developments at Portland and Franklin Avenues (South Quarter) in Minneapolis were selected by the Urban Land Institute (ULI) Terwilliger Center for Housing as the winner of the 2016 Jack Kemp Excellence in Affordable and Workforce Housing Award. This annual award honors developments that ensure housing affordability for people with a range of incomes. Representing the completion of South Quarter, The Rose offers 43 market rate apartments and 47 income-restricted affordable apartments in profoundly sustainable buildings that have neither furnaces nor conventional air conditioning equipment.

In 2010, affordable housing developer Aeon, in partnership with Hope Community, selected PLACE by competition to add specialized development consultant capacity as Sustainability Champion for the last phase of South Quarter. Aeon wanted the final buildings to be the best performing buildings of their kind in the country, on an affordable housing budget. A 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to public benefit, PLACE provided disruptive environmental design analysis, assisted in assembling and facilitating a world-class collaborative design and construction team, deepened community engagement, and refined financial modeling in furtherance of creating high-performance, healthy buildings for Aeon’s residents.

Minneapolis has the harshest climate of any large city in America. The biggest challenge for PLACE was to ensure that the team could deliver a building envelope capable of keeping residents cool in a scorching summer with high humidity and a frigid winter with temperatures plunging to minus thirty degrees Fahrenheit. Buildings in the U.S. are built each day to standards that cause them to consume 70% of America’s primary energy, with 52% of that energy going to heating and cooling. The Rose is 75% more energy efficient than local standards require, which also deepens affordability for residents; it represents PLACE’s most cutting edge restorative development work to date.

“This project is on the leading edge of workforce housing development and preservation,” said J. Ronald Terwilliger, chairman of Terwilliger Pappas Multifamily Partners in Atlanta. “It has it all—mixed-income housing, environmental sustainability, long-term affordability, and long-term financing.”

“The efforts of Aeon and Hope Community, with their many public and private sector partners, prove that previously disinvested communities can point the way forward for mixed-income, environmentally sustainable redevelopment in our cities,” said Stockton Williams, executive director of the ULI Terwilliger Center.

Baton Rouge Based Roof Crafters Launches New CRM Software For Clients

CRM Product Launch from Roof Crafters

Baton Rouge, Louisiana, 2016-Oct-12 — /EPR Network/ — Chuck Magee, construction professional and owner of Louisiana-based roofing company Roof Crafters, is proud to offer Louisiana clients more access and insight into the progress of their roofing projects.

baton-rouge-roofing-contractors

As the most technically advanced roofing contractor anywhere, Chuck Magee and Roof Crafters have taken full advantage of cloud technology and developed their own proprietary cloud-based software system. This intuitive, easy-to-use system is only available in Louisiana to Roof Crafters clients.

Utilizing SSA Store Share Access, Roof Crafter clients will be able to track and keep up with all aspects of their roofing and roof related jobs, including warranty information, shingle type, shingle color and when the roof was installed. Pictures at various stages of the project are also provided.

Keeping this information properly stored and easily accessible is also vitally important for many clients that are having roof repairs performed due to damage from weather or other accidents. The portal makes it easy for clients to retrieve information for insurance purposes, or even if they wish to sell their house a number of years later and want to provide the buyers with the correct information about the roofing materials.

Working in construction for over two decades, Chuck Magee realized that a client-access system such as the one developed by Roof Crafters was sorely needed in the industry. Being able to access information at their leisure helps clients feel better about their projects and provides them with a more comprehensive, detailed record.

As a trusted expert in the industry, it was especially important to Chuck that his clients could get as much assistance and information as they needed when they needed it. He states that he is “especially excited to launch this new software for Roof Crafters clients to stay up to date on their roofing projects.”

Chuck knows that every roofing job is different, and having completed a re-roofing of his own home, he has firsthand experience of the challenges and inconveniences these projects can cause for his clients. This makes him a much more understanding and sympathetic consultant for those in the middle of a difficult roofing project, and it is why he thinks that the CRM product developed by Roof Crafters will be such a benefit to the residents of Louisiana.

Roof Crafters Gives Away New Roof

Baton Rouge, Louisiana, 2016-Jun-22 — /EPR CONSTRUCTION NEWS/ — After Roof Crafters gives away new roof, Mid-city homeowner Yolanda White was delighted to hear her leaking roof would get fixed when a team of volunteers from Tulsa, Ok. came to town. Then the news got better.

Roof-Crafters-Client baton rouge-450x297

After Roof Crafters gives away new roof, Mid-city homeowner Yolanda White was delighted to hear her leaking roof would get fixed when a team of volunteers from Tulsa, Ok. came to town. Then the news got better.

The project at White’s house changed when Vaughn, an Owens-Corning Platinum Contractor, contacted Magee, another Platinum Preferred installer with Owens Corning, to see if Magee had a “backup crew” available in case inclement weather or other difficulties forced the Tulsa team to return home before the project was complete. Being community minded Roof Crafters gives away new roof by providing all the labor to install the roofing system.

“[Magee] said, ‘Hey, I’ve got a crew that will do the whole thing,’” Vaughn said. Materials were donated by ABC Supply, a nationwide supplier.

White’s one-story home was elevated after the storm, but the roof was not replaced at the time. White has lived in the 50-year old house for 15 years.

Team coordinator Dr. Amy Emerson said the team wanted to help White because she gives so much to others.

“She is an incredible lady who uses her vacation time each year to cook two hot meals for children in the Hollygrove neighborhood, who attend a week-long summer camp,” Emerson said. “It’s fun to see all kinds of people come together to do this project.”

Other activities held in conjunction with the team’s visit included a “Pete the Cat” literacy event, based on the popular children’s series books by Eric Litwin. Free books were provided for children that attended. The churches are co-led by ministers Charles Marsalis and Kirk Garrison.

While the long-standing partnership with the Oklahoma team has made them “family,” White said the focus of the week was on the children and not the adults workers. “Even though it’s just for a few days, the children are getting something they’ll remember for the rest of their lives.”

Besh Is Redesigning The Cabinet Industry

Raleigh, NC, March 21, 2016 — /EPR CONSTRUCTION NEWS/ — As landfills continue to be the dumping grounds for out-of-date kitchen cabinets, besh logoone innovative cabinet start-up out of Raleigh, North Carolina provides a solution that allows homeowners, designers and housing developers to update kitchens while keeping more trees in the forests and less waste in the dumps.

Besh creates eco-friendly cabinets that feature a swappable-front system and a sleek, modern design. By using industrial-grade engineered wood made with 100% wood waste, low VOC finishes and Besh’s frameless (euro-style) system, you don’t have to sacrifice Mother Nature’s resources for new kitchen cabinets. And since Besh cabinets are proudly made in the USA, the reduced shipping distance also contributes to a smaller carbon footprint.

Founder and designer Becky Shankle created Besh to be a natural solution for people who want modern kitchen cabinets — especially if they want something environmentally friendly and easily changeable in the future.

“People want options. They want to be able to evolve their kitchen. However, we only have one planet, and we must take care of it,” says Shankle.

With Besh, you install the backbone of the cabinet system and choose from countless customizable options like doors, drawer fronts, and robust, durable soft closing hardware to create your own unique design. Since the backbone is modular and always stays in place, you can give your kitchen a whole new look by ordering new doors and drawer fronts. You can even send the old ones back to Besh to be refurbished and reused.

While many companies in the cabinet industry support the old-fashioned “discard and replace” approach, Shankle believes less is more. “My goal is to sell people as few Besh cabinet systems as possible,” she states. “Then when they want to update we can just replace the doors and drawer fronts. It’s better for the environment and better for people’s wallets.” While Besh cabinets are hearty and built to last much longer than the cheap-overseas cabinets, they’re also more budget friendly than the high-end imported options.

After two successful years in the North Carolina market, Besh recently launched a new website www.bestcabinets.com and is lining up regional distribution channels as a precursor to a broader national rollout.

The Besh website was designed by Code18 Interactive (www.code18.com), a digital agency based in NYC.

The Metropolitan Council approves a $2M grant to fund a landmark, transit-oriented development in the heart of St. Louis Park, Minnesota

St. Louis Park, MN, December 11, 2015 — /EPR CONSTRUCTION NEWS/ — On December 9, 2015 and after overwhelming enthusiasm and support from a rigorous application and vetting process, the Metropolitan Council approved funding for PLACE’s St. Louis Park Community. The Council approved 2 million dollars in funding from its Livable Communities Account for a Transit-Oriented Development (LCA-TOD) grant after the proposed project demonstrated a breakthrough approach to meeting housing and economic development needs in the Twin Cities. The funds will be used to help secure site acquisition at the former McGarvey Coffee property, pioneer alternative energy sources, and integrate stormwater improvement with infrastructure like green roofs and an urban forest.

A nonprofit called PLACE (Projects Linking Art, Community, and Environment) heads up the community endeavor in concert with the City of St. Louis Park, fellow eco-minded and socially conscious companies like Allianz Life, Stantec, Shaw-Lundquist, Lindquist & Vennum, MSR, LIFT, and Rachel Contracting that have invested in the project, other private partners, and public collaborators like Hennepin County. The community will elevate affordable living, design, and artistic culture in the city and will be located near the expected Green Line extension (Southwest Light Rail) Wooddale Station. The development’s potential positive impact is staggering, with healthy homes for 300 households across the income spectrum supported by a mobility hub, urban agriculture, live and work spaces, a hotel, and a renewable energy generation system that consumes food waste created by its inhabitants and surrounding neighbors.

Chris Velasco, PLACE’s Executive Director, observed, “I think this project will be of national significance for communities that want to effectively leverage their scarce resources.”

Ryan Kelley, City of St. Louis Park Planner, says, “The City of St. Louis Park is extremely proud to be the co-recipient with PLACE of the Met Council’s largest transit oriented development grant for a new sustainable community of regional significance.”

“PLACE is an excellent project, for the city and the region. Turning vacant, unused property into a community space with alternative energy features, that is connected to other uses, like transit, is just the kind of investment the Council wants to make toward a livable communities and a prosperous region” – Erin Heelan, TOD Grants Coordinator, Metropolitan Council Livable Communities.

Executive Director Velasco thanks the Metropolitan Council for its confidence and support on behalf of the entire team and the residents of St. Louis Park.

Contractorcoaching.com: Construction Jobs Outpaces Workers Availability

After years of trimming jobs in the wake of the Great Recession, contractors and subcontractors say the pendulum has swung the other way, and now they are looking to hire skilled workers who are no longer available in the job market.

“I said this two years ago, if we have a full-speed recovery in the construction industry, we will not have the available workers to fill the jobs,” said Henry Goudreau, CEO & Founder of HG & Associates, Inc., and http://www.contractorcoaching.com. “The only way to correct this is by a grassroots effort by contractors in offering training, or convincing high school candidates to take construction training courses. It is in our best interest to start working on this now rather than later.”

To make up the shortfall, builders are training workers themselves, recruiting from outside the area and working with local technical schools on a slate of new training programs expected to begin in the fall.

Goudreau offers a report for contractors on how to increase sales and drive more money to their bottom-line. It is free for contractors by going to http://tinyurl.com/me78v37.

BUSINESS BUILDING COACH HENRY GOUDREAU POINTS TO MARCH RISE IN HOUSING STARTS

SARASOTA, FL, 2014-4-22 —/EPR Construction News/ — Business building coach to contractors Henry Goudreau, pointed to the rise in housing starts for March,  as evidence that any stall in the housing industry may not be realized at this time.

“With the backlog not set to run out for a couple of months, and interest rates still low, we are seeing improvement in new housing starts for the spring season,” said Henry Goudreau, Founder/CEO of contractorcoaching.com. “The severe weather we have been experiencing for the past couple of months, has played a serious role in impacting sales for contractors. We can now look towards the remainder of the spring season to get back on track.”

Led by a 6 percent rise in single-family starts, nationwide housing production rose 2.8 percent above an upwardly revised February rate of 920,000 to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 946,000 units in March, according to newly released figures from HUD and the U.S. Census Bureau.

Business-Building Coach Henry Goudreau Warns Contractors Of The Two Huge Hurdles The Construction Industry Has To Overcome Before A Recovery Can Take Place!

Anyone who watches the job market closely knows that the construction sector has been weak in this recovery, and is just starting to show an increase in numbers of employment. Unfortunately, there is another problem rearing its ugly head.

“Contractors have suffered deeply and carried the brunt of this recession of the last six years. In February, employment in construction changed little, just adding less than 15,000 jobs,” said business-building coach to contractors, Henry Goudreau. “However, this is merely the tip of the iceberg. There are two immense hurdles to overcome for contractors, other than finding and employing skilled craftsman,” says Goudreau. “The second killer is financing,” he warns.

While the Federal Reserve and U.S. Treasury rescued major banks amid the 2008 financial crisis to avert major financial chaos, the bailout didn’t help the small lenders. “Their disappearance, along with the lack of lending by the major banks, has left the contractor hanging out to dry.” explained Goudreau.

“There a two huge voids that contractors must find a way to fill,” said Goudreau. “Filling a demand for skilled craftsmen, and finding start-up funding. Both are going to hit the contractor on the side of the head, especially, if the economy picks up speed and momentum, and together, they will stifle any chance for the industry to get back on the right track out of this recession. With that said, contractors have to get their financial house in order so they can fund their work, and find skilled craftsmen. I can help them get a better handle on their business and build their financial ability, but I believe the labor level will have to be addressed at the local school or vocational tech level since so many have left the industry for greener pastures or retirement.”

Flowcrete Flooring System Delivers High Level Protection In Healthcare Environment

Flowcrete North America Inc utilized the latest in high performance flooring technology to deliver a customized solution at a Texan healthcare center.

Park Ten Surgical Center, located in Houston, contacted the commercial flooring specialist for advice on how to address a building defect at ground level.

A moisture problem, originated in part by the vinyl tile (VCT) installed throughout the facility, caused bubbling

Flowcrete North America and its approved contractor Prepco Flooring, created a tailored solution, specifically designed to solve Park Ten’s flooring issue.

They were able to call on their combined expertise to deliver a complete flooring package, which offered an antimicrobial, seamless and decorative finish.

Flowfresh SLB, a seamless, self-leveling and chemical resistant polyurethane concrete system, was installed across 7,000 square feet of the facility’s hallways and surgery rooms, in a decorative flake finish.

Tony Crowell, Managing Director of Flowcrete North America Inc, which has its headquarters in Conroe, Texas, said: “Like any of Flowcrete’s Flowfresh products, Flowfresh SLB contains Polygiene®, an innovative antimicrobial additive that reduces the generation of bacterial population on the surface of the floor by up to 99 per cent.

One of the Flowfresh advantages is that Polygiene® remains active 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, during the complete lifetime of the floor, for maximum hygiene performance.

In addition, Flowfresh SLB offers excellent resistance to moisture vapor transmission, eliminating the passage of water vapor to the surface, which ultimately avoids delaminating of the floor system.”

The system was coated and sealed using Peran STC and Flowseal UV. These low odor products deliver a durable and robust finish to the floor system, which provides chemical and abrasion resistance and a UV stable formulation to retain the color integrity of the floor finish.

According to Chris Riedel, General Manager at Park Ten: “Thanks to past and similar successful project experiences, Flowcrete North America and Prepco Flooring were able to delivered an antimicrobial, seamless and decorative flooring system, addressing the moisture vapor resistance required by us. We are proud to offer our patients the highest quality of care in a comfortable, convenient environment.”

Howden Thomassen Awarded Major Project With Korea Gas Corporation

Howden Thomassen Compressors have been awarded a major project with Korea Gas Corporation, the largest liquefied natural gas import company in the world, to install two new HP compressors at in the LNG terminal in Samcheok, South Korea.

Howden Thomassen Compressors has been awarded a major project by the largest Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) company in the world, the Korea Gas Corporation (KOGAS), to manufacture and install two C-45.3 HP compressors in two stages at the planned LNG Terminal in Samcheok, South Korea.

A spokesperson for Howden Thomassen Compressors explains: “Because we specialise in manufacturing compressors we knew that this was a project that we wanted to be involved in. This new project is not only a really big project for us, but also a very important one for the LNG market, which has steadily increased in popularity over recent years. We are thrilled to be working with KOGAS on this project, and we’re very much looking forward to creating and installing these two new C-45.2 HP Compressors at the LNG Terminal.”

The LNG Terminal, in Samcheok in South Korea has yet to be built, but once construction is completed on the terminal, it will be the fifth terminal of its kind in South Korea, and it will provide gas to the North East of the southern half of the Korean peninsula. The company is looking forward to working with KOGAS on the project, particularly because of the growth of the LNG market.

The spokesperson for Howden Thomassen Compressors continues: “As the LNG market has increased in popularity over recent years, it’s understandable that a fifth terminal is not yet built, we have a lot of time to plan, design and build the compressors. These compressors will be non-lubricated and will be equipped with Thomassen’s Free Floating Piston (FFP™) technology, which reduces rider ring wear to an absolute minimum. Also process piping, process air fin coolers and local control panels will be part of the scope of supply. The compressors will be driven by induction motors with a power rating of 2,8000kW each. We are very much looking forward to starting this project with KOGAS in the near future and we think this project will present us with a new and refreshing challenge in the coming months.”

Howden is one of the world’s largest and longest established manufacturers of air and gas handling equipment. The company was established in Glasgow in 1854 as an engineering firm, and has grown to become a worldwide organisation with over 4,000 employees and companies in 21 countries. Howden is owned by Colfax Corporation, and designs and supplies heavy duty industrial fans, rotary heater exchangers, compressors and gas cleaning equipment to customer specifications. Howden products will typically be highly engineered to perform at the optimum level for customers in Power Generation, Oil & Gas, Petrochemical, Mining and Metal Refining plants internationally, amongst many other energy intensive, environmental and heavy industrial applications.

Big Hearted Tradie Organises Valuable ‘Thank You’ for Bravehearts

When Brisbane electrician Rob Vernon heard Bravehearts’ call for help in renovating its new Strathpine office, he told his team to save the date, December 15 for a special opportunity for service this holiday season.

“I heard Bravehearts was expanding and in urgent need of tradies,” said Mr Vernon.“I’ve heard a lot about the work they do. I also know that, sadly, the demand for their crisis services is quite high too.”

The owner of Brisbane-based Vernons Electrical was personally touched by the work of the national child protection advocacy group this year, when the organisation provided much-needed support to a member of his family in crisis.

“I know their support made a difference to my family, so when I heard about their call for tradies, I knew it was a great opportunity to give back to Bravehearts for their tireless work with child abuse victims and their families,” Mr Vernon said.

All of Mr Vernon’s staff will join him on December 15 for a day-long tradie blitz on the new Bravehearts base, a Moreton Bay Regional Council-owned building in Strathpine.

Between his team of electricians and the generous support of his suppliers, Mr Vernon secured donations that will see the Bravehearts’ office fitted out with more than $15,000 worth of services and supplies.

“We are installing a brand new split system air conditioner, solar power, new lights, power points, security cameras, and security lights,” said Mr Vernon.

Spokesperson and founder of Bravehearts, Hetty Johnston, said the donations will be well received. “We have quite a bit of work to do before we can open the doors of our new office,” said Ms Johnston. “Bravehearts would like to express sincere thanks and appreciation to Vernons Electrical and their generous suppliers such as Solar Spec, Haymans Electrical, Airconditioning Direct, and Beacon Lighting. Christmas comes early sometimes and the timing could not be better as we continue to make Australia the safest place in the world to raise a child.”

Bravehearts Inc. is a registered Charity registered with the ATO as a DGR (Deductible Gift Recipient). They employ more than 50 staff across 9 offices. Bravehearts’ members comprise survivors, parents, friends, partners, professionals and non-abusive members of the community who share in the belief that child sexual assault must stop. The Strathpine office will be Bravehearts’ home base for rolling-out education programs to kids across Brisbane’s north.

Howden UK Celebrate Five Years of Health and Safety Excellence

The construction and maintenance division of Howden UK mark a record five years since their last Lost Time Incident and their fifth 5 star award from the British Safety Council. While the year may be nearly over, 2012 has been a highly successful one for the construction and maintenance division of Howden UK, which marked five years since their last Lost Time Incident (LTI). 2012 also marks the fifth consecutive year that Howden UK construction and maintenance division has been awarded the British Safety Council’s 5 Star Award for Health and Safety Management and working to best practise.

Nigel Francis, General Manager, Howden UK, Construction & Maintenance Division comments: “We believe that undertaking British Safety Council 5 Star Award for Health and Safety Management and working to Best Practice audit has raised the awareness of health and safety practices in our management team and our site personnel, resulting in a greater commitment to safe working practices in the workplace.”

Howden UK’s recent award from the British Safety Council, which was awarded following a three day audit carried out at their Kingswinford office and at West Burton Power Station, also marks another cause for celebration for the company. This is because this 5 star award, which is highly sought after in the industry, and which they were first awarded in September 2007, also gives them the opportunity to finally apply for the council’s most prestigious award.

Nigel Francis continues: “By achieving a 5 Star rating, Howden UK has qualified for the right to apply for the British Safety Council‘s prestigious Sword of Honour Award. Howden UK has been successful in being awarded the Sword three years out of four and we will be applying again this year. There are only 40 swords presented to companies worldwide each year. To achieve the Sword of Honour award, an in-depth portfolio has to be compiled, detailing the organisation’s Management Procedures with regard to Health & Safety, their commitment, initiatives and involvement of the workforce. The submission is externally reviewed and scored against Best Practice worldwide.”
