Hurricane Dorian Increases Demand for Hurricane Tarps used in Disaster Recovery

St. Joseph, Michigan, United States, 2019-Sep-04 — /EPR CONSTRUCTION NEWS/ — In the wake of storm surges of up to 18 feet on Grand Bahama Island, Hurricane Dorian continues threatens residents of the Florida coastline, as well as Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Southeastern Virginia coastlines, with the potential for high winds, heavy rains and storm surge.

While Dorian has been downgraded to a Category 2 Hurricane, municipalities, non-profit organizations, businesses and homeowners have begun stockpiling hurricane tarps, roofing tarps, mesh tarps, debris lifting tarps and tarp fabrics that help mitigate storm damage. Tarps are often used to immediately cover damaged roofing areas, broken windows and doors, as well as used to move debris, provide for water capture, sunscreen and shade, debris lifting, protective coverings and many other uses that protect homes, businesses, livestock and pets following hurricanes and tropical storms.

Noting the dramatic changes in weather closely linked to climate change, Tarps Now® has focused on providing protective tarps and coverings critical to hurricanes and tropical storms common to the Caribbean and the Eastern Seaboard. In addition, Tarps Now® also custom fabricates tarps prefabricated for mitigating damage to homes and other outdoor structures.

Compact Track Loaders Market: Contractors’ preference is shifting from skid steers to compact track loaders in the U.S.

DUBLIN 2, Ireland, 30-Oct-2018 — /EPR CONSTRUCTION NEWS/ — Fact.MR, a leading research firm that tracks markets across 150 countries, has recently announced the launch of its study that provides a scrutinized analysis on compact track loader market. This study is an all-inclusive compilation of insights on production and sales of compact track loader across countries, including the U.S., Canada, Brazil, Mexico, Germany, and Greater China.

Sample of the report is available at https://www.factmr.com/connectus/sample?flag=S&rep_id=1661

Key insights from the report:

  • U.S. will retain its lead in compact track loader sales, accounting for over 75% volume share of the overall industry in 2018
  • Demand is increasing in Brazil, Mexico, Germany, and China – these four markets will collectively account for over 10% market volume share in 2018
  • Contractors’ preference is shifting from skid steers to compact track loaders in the U.S., to realize enhanced productivity and uptime at lower operating expenses
  • Construction and landscaping & maintenance have traditionally remained prominent applications of compact track loaders
  • Compact track loader sales are increasing in the agriculture sector, particularly for producers who require extra traction, and additional floatation, according to Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM)

U.S. – Largest Compact Track Loader Market

Compact track loader continues to dig out a larger niche in the U.S. construction equipment industry. Contractors in the U.S., with their robust capital vigor, now show a marked preference for compact track loaders over skid steers, owing to the former’s relatively longer wheel base and greater lifting capacities. Higher-flow hydraulics of compact track loaders the enables more effective and efficient use of attachments such as snow blowers has further undergird the contractors’ preference for compact track loaders in the U.S.

Compact Track Loader Sales by Key Countries (Units)
2015 A 2016 A 2017 A 2022 F 2028 F
The U.S. 30,189 31,040 32,064 39,645 48,008
Canada XX XX XX XX XX
Brazil XX XX XX XX XX
Mexico XX XX XX XX XX

“Demand for compact tracker loaders is particularly robust in the rental space, with more and more rental centers including compact equipment fleets in their portfolio. Effective operation in ground conditions where skid steers are not as effective in wet or soft soil has further upheld compact track loader rentals, enabling customers to stay productive and meet tight schedules at affordable investments,” says Mohit Loshali, Senior Consultant at Fact.MR.

“Market penetration of compact track loaders in emerging markets will increase if customers are educated well on availability of various attachments. Tight labor and stricter deadlines in emerging markets, compared to their developed competitors, have made timely availability of the equipment essential. This further points at relative proliferation of compact track loaders in the rental industry,” adds Mr. Loshali.

Product and business strategies of manufacturers, vendors, and other stakeholders of the compact track loader industry have also been tracked in key sections of the study. Fact.MR study includes detailed profiling of key players operating in the compact track loader market, which include

  • Caterpillar Inc.
  • Deere & Co.
  • Komatsu Ltd.
  • Volvo Construction Equipment and Services, Inc.
  • Doosan Bobcat, Inc.
  • Yanmar Co. Ltd.
  • CNH Industrial N.V.
  • JCB, Inc.

Zuuse to acquire GCPay, a leading North American provider of construction payment applications software

Melbourne, Australia, 2018-Aug-15 — /EPR CONSTRUCTION NEWS/ — Zuuse has entered into an agreement to acquire GCPay.com (GCPay), a leading North American provider of cloud collaboration software aimed at streamlining the payment applications process in the building and construction industry.

The acquisition will provide Zuuse with a critical toehold in its largest global market, with almost 40,000 users of the software platform in the USA, including General Contractors, Owners, Developers, Financial Institutions, Government Agencies, Engineering and Architectural Firms, and Subcontractors.

Together with complementing its Payapps cloud collaboration platform in the APAC and EMEA markets, GCPay will help strengthen the Zuuse global product portfolio in the building and construction software sectors.

The GCPay software solution is consistently aligned to the Zuuse strategy and customer base, offering a strong standalone solution as well as integrations with Sage and Viewpoint construction ERP systems, and aligning with other partners.

Zuuse CEO, Jason Lilienstein, said, “This is an exciting acquisition for Zuuse and brings us a major step closer towards becoming a leading global provider of construction and building operations software. The integration of GCPay’s market leading technology will consolidate our position as an industry leader in cloud collaboration payment applications software to the global construction industry, together with further establishing our presence as a leading disruptor in the broader, high-growth AECO (Architecture – Engineering – Construction – Owner Operations) market.”

Systems and processes in the AECO sector are still largely fragmented, manual or paper based, and these inefficiencies result in customers losing time, money, information and resources. Lilienstein, added, “Today’s announcement further exemplifies the customer-centricity and the power of Zuuse, in providing construction and building operations software solutions for our customers which tackle these inefficiencies head-on, working with everything from day to day operational issueson the construction and building site, to long-term strategic asset and facility management issues.”

GCPay COO, Daniel Brunelli, said, “The coming together of our companies is an excellent outcome for all of our stakeholders and most importantly for ourcustomers. The combination of our businesses provides both parties with the expertise, scale and reach needed to provide our customers what they need, when they need it, anywhere in the world.

As a part of the broader Zuuse business, GCPay will be better equipped and resourced to deliver greater value to customers, including extending our existing product functionality as well as broadening our product offering to better fulfil the evolving needs of the growing construction industry. We are tremendously excited by the prospect of what Zuuse and GCPay can achieve together, and I look forward to sharing these benefits with our customers.”

The acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions and is anticipated to be completed in the third quarter of calendar year 2018.

BuildPay is a construction payment platform built to directly combat the construction industries’ chronic cash-flow issues and notorious payment chaos. The online platform was built in 2017 and began deploying to construction funding institutions recently, but the solution had been evolving and refining since Hurricane Andrew in 1992 when Wightman began proving there was a better way to build, supported by smarter payment. Costs dropped and work accelerated.

“Nobody is doing construction payment right, as evidenced by our industry having the longest accounts receivable and least access to working capital of any segment worldwide,” said Wightman. “Payment is the one thing that all construction has in common and is the lifeblood of projects, so that’s the only thing we focused on solving.”

Wightman and the other mavericks were recognized at the recent BuiltWorlds Summit in Chicago on Thursday, presented by Autodesk. The BuiltWorlds Summit is a gathering of 250 c-suite executives and innovation heads from the built world.

Grecoa.com Wants to Empower Homeowners & Change How Homes are Built

The Founders of Grecoa.com have launched a campaign on indiegogo.com to raise the funds they need to build a free, online database of ideas and products capable of making our homes more energy and resource efficient. Grecoa.com will offer product specific information on everything from roofing materials to appliances to finishing materials and everything else that goes into a home. The focus of the website will be providing in-depth comparisons of the products that might fit a homeowners needs so that the homeowner can chose the product that works best for them.

“Typical ‘green’ home building websites are either directory listings, collections of articles, or product specific websites,” says Taylor Reynolds, Co-Founder of Grecoa.com, “We want to take all the great features of the existing sites, and build on that by creating a database of products with information on cost, performance, warranties etc. We want to empower homeowners by harnessing the power of the internet to condense massive amounts of information into a single source, easy to use website.”

According to Google’s Keyword Tool, over 3 million searches are performed every month on topics relating to green building materials, improving energy efficiency in the home, and sustainable building practices. Grecoa.com aims to become the site du jour for those viewers who are ready to take action. Mr. Reynolds continues “While having lots of educational information is important to the scope of the website, the real emphasis is going to be placed on connecting users with the product that most closely matches their economic, project specific, and sustainability needs; then giving them everything they need to act on that information.”

Tool-NET Sales Heat Up This Spring

Online tool superstore Tool-NET has reported that the unusually warm spring weather caused a spike in product purchases from their range of DIY tools. With an unseasonably hot March, Tool-NET has experienced significant growth in sales of gardening and DIY tools and accessories. This is largely thanks to UK householders shaking off their winter inertia and starting projects in the home and garden.

The hot March weather appears to have encouraged a lot of fair-weather spending. The British Retail Consortium claim retail sales across the board were up year-on-year by 1.3% in March, with clothes, barbecue foods and gardening goods as the most popular products. Online retailers saw rises of 13.9%, and Tool-NET saw an even stronger sales rise.

Tool-Net has developed a strong customer base among trade tool purchasers, DIY fanatics and casual purchasers of tools for the home and garden. Offering a no-nonsense returns policy and dispatch times where 98% of orders are sent out the day they are received, Tool-NET also offers strong savings with discounts of up to 70% off list prices. These are available on a wide range of more than 6500 power tools, gardening accessories, fixings, fastenings, hand tools, ancillaries and consumables.

Another factor which has helped Tool-NET sales heat up this spring is an ever-growing catalogue. With new lines being added daily it has never been easier for customers to find the right tool at the right price.

Among the new gardening lines which are proving popular is the innovative cordless gardening multi-tool from CEL-UK. The PS1 Powerstick dispenses with the hassle and trip hazard of a cord while adding an unrivalled versatility which allows it to convert effortlessly from a grass trimmer to a hedge trimmer to a garden rake and broom.

More traditional brands continue to fare well in the fair weather, too. Black & Decker’s reputation for performance and reliability at an attractive price has been continued in its latest range of gardening tools, including chainsaws, hedge trimmers, line trimmers, blower/vacs and lawn mowers.

With its ever-expanding catalogue, competitive pricing and fast dispatch times Tool-NET is continuing to help fuel the UK’s spring clean of gardens and homes.

Tool-NET Advises Homeowners To Get Ready For Summer Now

Leading online garden and power tool retailer Tool-NET.co.uk today urged homeowners that in the run-up to spring now is the best time to get those outside spaces ready for summer.

Tool-NET has highlighted five jobs that should be an essential part of summer preparations this spring:

Clean gutters may not be the first thing commented on by summer guests, but nonetheless, spring is the best time to get those gutters clear of the leaves, twigs, and debris left in winter’s wake. Failing to do this can lead to clogged water being driven under the eaves of the house and ultimately into its walls.

Decking that has been scrubbed down and protected with decking oil will not only look a lot better and help frame your outdoor space, it will also last a lot longer.

Sorting your shed out will make storing gardening equipment, along with barbecues and chairs, so much easier. First, throw away or recycle what you do not need. Next organise what is left into groups and then store it in boxes, on shelves or on hooks. Try to keep things off the floor to maximise your space.

Now you can turn your attention to the garden. Rake your lawn to remove dead growth, stray leaves and twigs. This will give the soil the light and air it needs to support grass growth. If you spot bare or damaged patches of lawn, spring is a great time to reseed them before the garden gets heavy use in the summer.

Finally, weed your beds before unwanted plants become established. Now is the time to move any shrubs you wish to relocate so they can establish themselves in their new location. Use an organic dormant oil spray to remove pests who have overwintered in your fruit trees, magnolias, crab apples and shrubs.

Tool-NET is currently offering discounts of up to 70% off the list price of gardening tools and other power and hand tools so that, whatever tool you need for your garden, it needn’t cost the earth.
