t’s not quite the scene Kevin Plank wants you to remember. Broken stoplights dangled above the intersection. Plywood sealed blocks of townhouses. Parts of the City of Baltimore, the place where the founder and CEO of Under Armour set out to change the way people everywhere felt about performance sports apparel, are in disarray.

Plank is committed to changing that. With $1.1 billion in public funding on the table, he has plans to close the gap that has opened too wide. Through his privately held Plank Industries, a holding company, he established a variety of other enterprises, which focus on venture capital, horse racing, making whiskey and other pursuits. One of them, Sagamore Development, was dedicated to quietly acquiring land, including the plot for his ambitious venture. And while every city has sides that I remember sitting with Kevin Plank in a nobody likes to talk about, Plank dreams of trade show booth in Atlanta during the early more for the place where he built his $27 bilyears of his company.

Turning the lights on U.S. hotels embracing energy-efficient technologies

I

t’s no secret that American hotels have long resisted key cards or other energy-saving systems. Energy was inexpensive, and hoteliers feared that guests used to routinely leaving their rooms with the lights and air-conditioner on would see any check on their energy use as an inconvenience. But the aversion is changing. Today, U.S. hotels are adopting energy-efficient building systems in response to consumer demands and local laws. With energy costs typically representing 4 percent to 6 percent of overall operating expenses, technologies such as key cards that activate lights and temperature controls actually can bring savings. For some independently run hotels, especially those housed in older buildings, key

card-based light and temperature controls appear to be an increasingly appealing alternative. The key card systems allow hotels to select which circuits are controlled by the devices. And in most cases, the switches are programmed with a delay, keeping the lights on for a brief grace period after the key has been removed from the slot. The card systems also can be easily gamed by placing an extra room key in the wall slot to keep the lights or air-conditioning on, even when the room is vacant. By subtly shifting energy use, guests may not even be aware of the difference. This is causing hoteliers who place guest satisfaction well ahead conservation to reduce their energy use. CCR

Vegas style NFL, Oakland Raiders eye sites in Sin City for football stadium

T

he NFL may come to Vegas yet. The Oakland Raiders continue to consider relocating to Las Vegas, where a state committee is reviewing nine potential sites for a new stadium. The estimated $2.1 billion project could lead to the creation of an expanded special tax improvement district to pay for the proposed 65,000-seat domed stadium with a retractable roof. Representatives of a private-public partnership headed by Las Vegas Sands Corp., Majestic Realty and the Raiders introduced three new potential sites: 62 acres west of Mandalay Bay and Interstate 15; more than 139 acres at the Wynn Golf Club, east of Wynn Las Vegas and Wynn Encore;

and 27 acres at the former site of the Wet n’ Wild water park south of the SLS Las Vegas. Also in play is a site at Tropicana Avenue and Koval Lane, the initial favorite for the project; a site on the UNLV campus near the Thomas & Mack Center; more than 100 acres on Tropicana about a half-mile west of I-15 that currently houses the Wild Wild West casino; the former site of the Riviera hotel, now owned by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority; the Rock in Rio festival site at Las Vegas Boulevard and Sahara Avenue owned by MGM Resorts International; and Cashman Center in downtown Las Vegas. A Sands representative said a 10th site could be in play.

Meet me at The

Joint Inside the chiropractic company’s continued growth By Michael J. Pallerino

F

act: A National Health Interview Survey found that among those who had used chiropractic for back pain, 66 percent perceived “great benefit”

from their treatments.

Therein lies one of the secrets to the growing success of The Joint, a nationwide network of more than 345 clinics – and counting. The Joint originally was founded in 1999 by a doctor of chiropractic with a vision to transform the traditional concept of chiropractic care. In March 2010, it was re-founded with the acquisition of the original eight franchised clinics. Professional. Affordable. Convenient. These are the tenants of their mission statement. And today, the standardized clinic model is helping reinvent chiropractic care by making quality alternative healthcare affordable for patients seeking pain relief and ongoing wellness in a

retail-like setting. The Joint is helping to set a new benchmark for brand awareness and rapid growth through franchising. Commercial Construction & Renovation sat down with Brent Saul, senior director of construction and facilities, and Jack Colmar, manager of construction and facilities, to get their take on where The Joint is heading in 2016 and beyond.

MEET ME AT THE JOINT

Give us a snapshot of today’s retail marketplace.

Today’s market is a complex mix of retailers, from fashion apparel and fitness, health and wellness, tech devices and office equipment, jewelry and pet supplies, all competing for customers and increased marketshare. It’s more competitive than ever with companies looking for an edge that will allow them to stand out from the crowd.

What trends are defining The Joint’s marketplace?

The Joint is very unique. We provide affordable and convenient chiropractic care, which is a departure from the norm in the chiropractic industry. We believe the consumer, now more than ever, is looking for convenience and affordability in

retail. Moreover, consumers are becoming much more receptive to alternative health care. We execute on all of those points, so there is a strong alignment with the trends in the marketplace and what The Joint provides.

What is the most pressing item on your to-do list?

It’s to search for new ways of servicing our clinics, providing them the support they need. Doing so enables our doctors and wellness coordinators to provide a pleasant and efficient experience for our customers.

How has business been over the past year overall?

Our growth continues to experience double-digit comp increases year over year.


What are some of your biggest opportunities moving ahead?

Having established ourselves in the chiropractic arena, our biggest opportunity is to continue appealing to the chiropractic community, building confidence with practicing doctors and patients, as well as increasing consumer awareness of the benefits of regular chiropractic visits. Taking just five minutes out of your day for an adjustment can make a huge difference in your overall well being.

What is your growth plan?

Our pipeline for growth continues to expand. Our plan is to continue on our path of 50-60 franchise units each year for the foreseeable future.

What’s driving the growth?

We believe it’s a combination of a few factors. Consumer acceptance and demand of

We believe the consumer, more now than ever, is looking for convenience and affordability in retail.

alternative care is a big factor. The affordability and convenience of our treatment plans coincide very well with consumer needs. The demographics of our real estate combined with a clean efficient construction buildout also drives growth.

What markets are you targeting?

Currently, we have clinics in 30 states and are looking to expand in existing markets as well as into additional states.

Talk about your refresh strategy. Our first generation clinics are coming up on five years old, where they will soon be ready for a refresh. We look to maintain brand consistency across our corporate and franchise clinics, so when the time is right for a refresh, it is likely to be a significant undertaking.

MEET ME AT THE JOINT What is today’s customer looking for?

Today’s consumer is acutely aware of the value of their hard-earned dollar. They are also more-than-ever interested in improving their health and physical quality of life. These are two areas where we deliver better than any other chiropractic concepts. And our growing patient counts prove it. Whether our customers need a scheduled routine visit or a last minute emergency, we can accommodate everything in between.

Are you optimistic about the road ahead?

Very optimistic. We see a bright future for continued growth of our franchise clinics and increased customer count at our corporate clinics.

What trends do you see evolving in the retail construction arena?

I see contractors looking for additional ways to service retailers. Perhaps by offering expanded coordination services with owner supplied items. The more contractors can incorporate additional services of a turn-key product, the greater their value becomes to retailers. We emphasize working closely with our contractors and suppliers. Partnership is an absolute necessity, and the key to a successful working relationship as we continue to strive for better, more efficient ways to bring our clinics to market.

We are contemplating experimenting with a polished concrete floor in designated areas of the reception and treatment bay.

What does “green” mean today?

Green to us means efficiency and sustainability. The only significant energy draw within our clinics is lighting, and having moved to 100 percent LED, it is a fraction of what it would be without LED fixtures. We believe this decision has significantly reduced our footprint on the environment.

What should people expect from The Joint brand moving forward? A continued high level of quality and affordable chiropractic care as we look to expand our franchise presence into new markets around the country. CCR


One-on-one with... Brent Saul, senior director of construction & facilities, and Jack Colmar, manager, construction & facilities, The Joint What’s the most rewarding part of your job? Brent: Working with the wonderful people based in our Clinic Support Center and in our clinics. Jack: Working with the team to see a project from start to finish, and taking pride in a job well done.

What was the best advice you ever received? Brent: It is in the quote from Ronald Reagan, “There is no limit to the amount of good you can do if you don’t care who gets the credit.” Jack: I can hear my Dad’s voice now, “Do it now. Do it right.”

When managers have perfected their own routine, they are able to accomplish anything – and it rubs off on those around them.

What book are you reading now?

Brent: “High Hanging Fruit,” by Mark Rampolla Jack: “Fahrenheit 451.” I read it once a year, every year. Although it is fiction, it is packed with nuggets of wisdom and perspective that every person can apply to their own life.

What’s the best thing a client ever said to you?

Brent: “I appreciate your honesty and forthrightness. It is a pleasure to work with someone who has integrity.” Jack: Having a client say that he could not have done it without me. I like the feeling of knowing that I have played an important role in someone achieving their own goals.

What are the three strongest traits any leader should have?

Brent: Passion for the brand and the people; vision with clear goals for the future; and honesty, setting the bar for all to follow. Jack: Selflessness, the ability to inspire, and the ability to produce quality results. Those traits drive me to respect a leader or employer, and to do my very best for them. I know when I employ these traits with peers and co-workers, it brings out the best in them too.

Kanare provides breakthrough scientific information that seriously challenges what we have believed regarding traditional methods for measuring moisture in concrete slabs.

Why partnerships in commercial development are destined to fail By Matt Burgess

Oftentimes, partnerships develop under the assumption that by working together, individuals can achieve what neither can do independently.

from residential, commercial

real estate professionals deal with larger projects, higher risk and more complex technical disciplines. But at the same time, business is just as personal. That’s why those who develop careers in commercial development typically have great people skills and are business savvy by nature. So, it seems a little contradictory to say that commercial development partnerships are destined to fail – but that’s what I’m saying. And I’m not the first to say it. In an article titled, “The Nuts and Bolts of Real Estate Joint Venture Partnerships,” Jonathan Farrell writes, “While it may seem counterintuitive, all parties [in a partnership] should start by looking at their exit strategy.”

THE HEART OF THE MATTER Would you enter into a marriage, while simultaneously planning your divorce strategy? I didn’t think so. It is important to note that when I reference partnership, I’m defining the term as general 50/50 partners. Financial partners – those who infuse capital and seek return, but are not invested in how you get that return – are a necessity in commercial real estate development. But unlike a limited financial partnership, a general partnership is difficult to maintain. In fact, according to Forbes, “Partnership is far more difficult to maintain than marriage. Whereas 50 percent of marriages end in divorce, the number is closer to 80 percent for business partnerships.” As a someone who has been involved in multiple partnership models, I know this firsthand. Below, why commercial development partnerships are destined to fail:

Commercial development is built on trusted relationship and a trust in the potential of a mutually beneficial outcome. Synergy is a dangerous word

Oftentimes, partnerships develop under the assumption that by working together, individuals can achieve what neither can do independently. And in theory, this makes sense – one partner can focus on acquisitions while the other handles finances, for instance. Unfortunately, this synergy-based approach is not sustainable in the commercial development world. People are people, and we are all constantly

THE HEART OF THE MATTER Heights retail development. Staenberg accused Kroenke of going behind his back to acquire land in Maryland Heights. This legal feud is a prime example of what could – and likely will – go wrong when big money and bigger risk is involved. When each partner has different expectations and a different idea of what is fair, the road to recovery is a long one.

evolving. There’s a good chance that neither you, nor your partner, will handle one deal in the exact same way you handle the next. We learn, we grow and we adapt to new roles – deal after deal, year after year. Robert Shemin, bestselling author of "Successful Real Estate Investing," makes this point: “It should never be a 50-50 partnership; someone has to be in control and make decisions, and that person should be you. Make sure you work with silent partners who do not interfere [with day-to-day decision making]. About 70 percent of real estate partnerships fail because two equal partners cannot agree on anything.”

Two is not better than one

Having multiple “faces” of a company can be dangerous for several reasons. Commercial development is built on trusted relationship and a trust in the potential of a mutually beneficial outcome. This faith is built on consistent messaging and confidence in one person;

In an industry that inherently involves big risk – you have to expect the occasional loss. There’s no telling how principles and standards might change in the face of adversity. Commercial development is volatile

In an industry that inherently involves big risk – you have to expect the occasional loss. And – once again – people are people. There’s no telling how principles and standards might change in the face of adversity. Take the case of Stan Kroenke and Michael Staenberg, longtime partners turned legal combatants. For two decades, Kroenke and Staenberg were partners in building one of the country’s biggest developers of shopping centers. They became two of the richest men in Missouri. But after a sudden string of events, Kroenke sued his longtime colleague, seeking $20.2 million he said Staenberg reneged on paying him as part of the unwinding of their complex web of real estate holdings, and fighting to block repayment of a $1.2 million loan Staenberg had made to their company. That was three years ago. Then, in November of 2015, the dispute spilled over into the St. Louis Rams owner’s potential plans for a Maryland

it cannot be replicated with a second company figurehead. Consistent, trustworthy messaging is not only essential to relationship-building, but also to building a solid public reputation. If media were to catch wind of a statement your partner made, and you don’t agree with it, your brand’s credibility is on the line. I know firsthand that it’s tough to operate a business while constantly worrying about what someone else is saying and doing. When more than one person is in charge of a brand – each making their own decisions and stating their own opinions – the results can be disastrous, especially in commercial real estate development. Having been involved in commercial real estate development for more than two decades, I’ve experimented with several different business models and partnership structures. The takeaway I want to share with you? Don’t waste your time on experimentation; general partnerships in this industry do not work. CCR

Grace Daly is the founding host of ShopTalk360.com, the industry podcast show. With more than 20 years directing design, construction and facilities for national retail brands, Daly’s current role as interviewer, author and business coach celebrates the leaders in our industry she fondly refers to as her family. Please feel free to reach out to her at Grace@GraceDaly.com

s an avid interviewer, writer and executive coach, I find myself chatting with so many people from all aspects of our Industry. I’ve had the privilege of meeting some very incredible entrepreneurs, business owners and Industry leaders, as well as witness and celebrate the continued career growth and successes of many of my colleagues throughout the years. If there is one common theme among all these incredible people, it’s the simple and basic golden rule in business and life: They all value their relationships and understand that fostering these healthy relationships ultimately defines fulfillment and success. Yet, there still are many people who are unaware of this critical key. I hear of these scenarios quite often. People get emails out of the blue from someone who has not been in touch with them for years or sometimes even decades, only to reach out for urgent help to find a job or be a reference for a job application.

on the turn of a dime. It just doesn’t work that way because we’re human beings, and human nature dictates certain unwritten rules. Relationships are based on common values, trust and care; nurtured one person at a time. As a coach, my No. 1 piece of advice to my clients is to stay connected and engaged to their networks, help each other grow, celebrate successes and ask for help in times of need. Too many folks out there just reach out in times of need. They may feel they are too busy to stay in touch or wish to remain within a certain degree of privacy – keeping business and personal separate, especially when it comes to today’s social media. The truth of the matter is people won’t want to support your endeavors unless they trust you and, they won’t trust you unless they know who you are. Knowing who you are is achieved only through building valued relationships. By definition, an ecosystem is a group of interconnected elements, formed by the interaction of a community of organisms with their environment. I view my networks and my worlds as various ecosystems; self contained operating worlds where everyone knows one another and relies on one another in order to keep the energy circulating. It’s not uncommon that my entrepreneurial world will cross with my construction and facilities world, or that my writing world will mesh with my entrepreneurial world, as I make the connections for folks that can help each other. Because at the end of the day, we all have the same desires. We all want to achieve the same goals: to care and provide for our loved ones, to get a job well done and, of course, to have some fun, celebration and recognition along the way. So how is your ecosystem? Are you making the time to foster healthy relationships? Keep up this energetic flow, cognizant of the give and take to keep your ecosystem sustained and healthy. CCR

As a coach, my No. 1 piece of advice to my clients is to stay connected and engaged to their networks, help each other grow, celebrate successes and ask for help in times of need. Or, someone who won’t give the common courtesy of returning an email or phone call only reaches out in an emergency when he needs a contractor in a specific trade or region. And then there is the flip side. Those people on LinkedIn who make new connections, only to immediately send a sales pitch as their very first email. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a noble trait to be honest in your intentions to ask for help or to build your business, but it just cannot be effectively done

t was simple, in the beginning. Larry and Stuart Harris started with a recipe for citrus-marinated grilled chicken. Taking the fresh, flame-grilled chicken marinated in a blend of tropical fruit juices and spices, they opened the first Pollo Tropical® in Miami in 1988.

The original restaurant, at 741 NW 37th Avenue, is still there today (newly remodeled and better than ever). They weren’t done. The Harris brothers began expanding the Pollo Tropical brand, the name the gave it, inside and outside the continental United States. In 1995, they opened a franchise in Mayagüez, Puerto Rico, eventually following with locations in Freeport, Bahamas, Tegucigalpa, Honduras and Barquisimeto, Venezuela. After successfully selling the business in 1998 (Carrols Corp. eventually bifurcated Pollo Tropical and Taco Cabana® to create a

new, stand alone, publicly traded company, Fiesta Restaurant Group® Inc.), Pollo Tropical hit new heights. Today, the brand has seized a cult following for patrons who love its craveable island favorite dishes. Commercial Kitchens sat down with Tom McBride, VP of Construction and Design for the Fiesta Restaurant Group, to get his take on where the Pollo Tropical brand is heading.

BRINGING THE CASUAL

COMMERCIAL KITCHENS

Give us a snapshot of Pollo Tropical brand?

Pollo Tropical is a Caribbean-inspired fast casual restaurant that has gained a cult-like following for its fresh, flame-grilled chicken marinated in a proprietary blend of tropical fruit juices and spices. Other craveable island favorites include Mojo Roast Pork, Create Your Own TropiChops®, and made-from-scratch sides, including rice, beans, yuca with garlic sauce, sweet plantains, and more. All Pollo Tropical meals are customizable with 10 zesty tropical signature sauces on its famous Saucing Island®. Founded in 1988, the company currently owns and operates more than 160 locations in Florida, Georgia, Tennessee and Texas, plus six domestic licensed locations and 35 franchised locations throughout the Caribbean, Central America, South America and Puerto Rico.

What type of consumer are you targeting?

Our target customer wants to have an affordable, craveable, customizable meal they can feel good about eating every day, and that isn’t the same old, same old. We serve everyone – families who want an affordable meal out together, workers on their lunch breaks or people grabbing dinner on their way home from the office.

How does the design of the restaurant cater to today's consumers' taste?

The Pollo Tropical building design was created from a tropical atmosphere reflecting an airy, bright, sunny experience. Today’s consumer is seeking new, comfortable dining. Pollo Tropical is different than other national brands and our new exteriors really highlight that fact. It is a fast casual experience in a casual dining design.

Give us a rundown of your kitchen operation. How is it organized?

The kitchen is centered on the food production area. In our kitchens we have several cooking and food preparation areas, so each station works toward the center production line for assembly and out the door. The operations teams have put together our central assembly make line to fit the menu items. This is a complex piece of equipment. There’s particular attention given to the labor associated with each menu item and the final time to get to the customer from point of ordering.

What's the biggest issue today related to the construction side of the business?

There’s never one singular item that is the biggest issue in construction. There’s so many factors that can affect projects. Costs are the main challenge. But there are other things, depending on regions, that affect the projects as well. Labor, for example, in some areas can be a problem for controlling costs. Some areas where there is a lot of commercial development taking place, labor costs tend to be higher and workers are in demand. This shortage of labor causes increase costs. The shortage of skilled labor can also result in loss of production and meeting timelines. Permitting, municipal requirements and building codes are also issues that can greatly affect projects. These items can affect costs and

Walk us through how and why it designed the way it is?

Pollo Tropical was designed to reflect the whole island experience, from the cooking method on our open grills to the tropical taste in décor. Our slogan is “Life’s better under the palm.” So we offer a relaxing, tropical feeling under the palm tree experience. From an exterior perspective, when we were expanding into Texas for the first time in 2014, we wanted the exterior to communicate to new audiences what we offer – and the new restaurants feature Caribbean-style design that incorporates bright island colors and details that tell them that is isn’t just another chicken place. It’s something special and different.

Walk us through your construction and design strategy.

As in most brands, designs are an evolution. Designers bring the vision to paper. It is our job as construction and brand design people to bring the vision within the business model. This is always the challenge. The question is always where to put on the brakes regarding costs. At Pollo Tropical, we are no different than any other company when bringing our brand to new markets. You adapt to the market needs and build to the business model. Always looking for savings and new technology that fits budgets.

timelines. The requirements and expense for permitting and gaining zoning approvals seems to grow and grow without ends in sight. Some areas are very difficult to plan for project openings, while other areas are more streamlined. Knowing those differing area requirements is essential before ever securing a property to develop into a store. The last item that comes to mind is inflation. The costs for construction over the past couple of years have been fairly consistent on most areas. In some markets, such as South Florida and Texas, where the development of commercial building has been on a rise, also bring a rise to costs. You plan for certain percentages to factor in relating to costs from year to year. When markets get hot and building is increased, it becomes difficult to determine what the proper inflation planning number should be. These are all challenging issues when planning projects.

Talk about sustainability. What are you doing?

Sustainability and LEED building as concepts have been welcomed everywhere in restaurant construction. However, the cost for full LEED buildings has not proven out. The return of dollars on investment can exceed 20 years. This is not a return acceptable to the industry. Yet, some municipalities force the concept. Eventually, as more and more manufacturers provide sustainable items and costs are reduced, this idea of full LEED buildings will evolve into the design.

Currently, we adapt affordable LEED and energy savings items into the design. Lighting, electrical usage and HVAC are the main expenditures where certain LEED products will pay off. Roofing, for example, being made from recycled products is a more affordable product implemented into our buildings. We utilize LED lighting packages, energy efficient HVAC systems and any recycled product where and when we can.

What do you see as some of your biggest opportunities moving ahead?

For a company like ours that is growing, there are advantages to being able to move quickly on real estate opportunities. This allows us to get A+ locations and beat out our competitors. One area we as a company look at closely are conversion opportunities. This is where we look to convert a closed restaurant into our new building design. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been successful securing these types of projects. It is advantageous to us primarily from a timeframe of obtaining a location to the actual opening. We can convert projects quickly by not having to go through zoning and municipal approvals that take much longer on new building projects.

Are you optimistic about what you see in the restaurant sector?

Yes, I believe the restaurant business has rebounded and going to continue to grow stores over the next several years. We are seeing a lot of growth in Florida and Texas.

What is your growth plan? What areas are you targeting?

Texas is a big growth market for us. Starting with Dallas in 2014, we continued expansion to Houston and San Antonio. Now we’re moving into Austin with our first location that opened in July and four others to come in 2017. We’re also concentrating growth in the Atlanta metro area.

What trends are you seeing?

Many restaurant groups tend to look at fads versus brand stability, and brand recognition. We see trends in designs all over the map. Many other brands copycat from others. As I see our Pollo Tropical brand, designs and awareness factors we have are unique. We have a building that no one else immolates. We have tropical theme of colors that are unique and inspiring. Building trends are more going in the direction of energy savings, low maintenance and quick building timelines. We incorporate all those things as well.

What is the secret to creating a "must visit" restaurant in today's competitive landscape?

Why did you pick the locations you did for your restaurants?

Our real estate, legal and development teams do extensive studies on selection of locations. We examine many factors before making a decision. Demographics, traffic counts, access points, visibility and competition are some of the driving factors examined. There’s not one singular one that determines an approved site. Location and visibility is always at the top of our list. Our real estate team does a tremendous job in finding opportunities, and then pulling all the information together for review in order to make a final determination on selecting a

What's the biggest item on your to-do list right now?

Cost reduction. This is always No. 1. Keeping the costs within the business model and maintaining brand image awareness. We’ve been fortunate to have an economy with slow inflation in the past few years. That is slated to change in the coming years. Being out in front of cost increases and being creative to divert those is the key to fighting the inflation curve on costs. You divert them by planning ahead and having solutions.

Describe a typical day.

There’s nothing typical about any of my days. Every day and every week is different. If there is any one singular thing I do each and every day, it is pray. Other than that, we are construction people. You handle many different tasks throughout a day and that never changes.

Tell us what makes you so unique?

What makes me unique as an employee and head of the construction and design department is my ability to apply costs to the design, and design from the ground up versus the sky downward as we develop a concept or a building design. I know costs. I also know construction methods. Being able to provide savings to building costs is key. I’ve been successful doing this wherever I have worked.

In other words, we begin a design with budget in mind first, and grow the concept design upward, stick by stick from there. Many other brands come up with what a brand is to look like first, not knowing costs, and design from their down. In the business of fast casual, you cannot allow architects to control designs. The architects must work within costs for designs. Now, let me be clear, you do have to have creative architects/designers to get the concept across and make it all work with a marketing strategy. However, you cannot let the costs or designs at any costs dictate the final outcome. Having been on both sides of this business as a GC being hired to build restaurants and now one who hires GCs to build, I can control costs, quality, timelines and expectations knowing both sides of the business. Being someone who has learned the trade side of the business, I can adapt costs to designs and come up with solutions for costs savings. CK

What’s the most rewarding part of your job?

Always working with my team opening stores and meeting deadlines. We don’t celebrate until the last project is opened. Hitting those milestones is rewarding, and seeing my team members growing in their fields and hitting goals, is a charge for me.

a leader includes being forward-thinking. Seeing the big picture, and then figuring out new ways to get there. The third is to be inspiring. A leader cannot win on his or her own. A leader must inspire people to see and strive to reach end goals. Great leaders on winning teams bring their team not just to score, but to win.

What was the best advice you ever received?

What’s your favorite quote?

I’ve received lots of advice along the way, so I could list many. One that sticks with me always was when my father, who was the largest homebuilder where I grew up in St. Louis, first put me out on a project. He told me two things: finish no matter what (complete the job), and be aggressive to hit your schedule and budget.

What’s the best thing a client ever said to you? I had a franchisee in California tell me that if it weren’t for me, he would not have grown his company to the size he did. He made a lot of money as a result of my efforts. He is now one of the largest U.S. franchisees in their brand.

Name the three strongest traits any leader should have.

There are certainly more than three. The first is integrity, which brings together honesty, a strong work ethic and matching your actions to your words. Be honest with yourself first. Your word means everything. Second is creativity. I like to say that you must have to be creative to figure out how to reach goals. I believe that creativity in

It comes from Vince Lombardi, who said, “Contrary to the opinion of many people, leaders are not born. Leaders are made, and they are made by effort and hard work.”

What is the true key to success for any manager? Figure out where you are going – in your career and in team goals. Be determined to get there. Devise a plan to get there. Be able to coach your team to get to a point of flawless execution. This is very difficult. Everyone has to perform. And finding those who will perform for you is key.

How do you like to spend your down time?

Fishing. When I get down time. Not often enough. My wife and I like taking day trips seeing new places and small town USA.

What book are you reading now?

I read a couple at a time. One is about pride and humility and using what God has taught us through the Bible in our jobs, work and life to stay humble. I also like to read about innovative things and inventors.

From chef, with love An inside look at The Dabney restaurant's roots inspired design By Robert Mescolotto

96

COMMERCIAL CONSTRUCTION & RENOVATION â&#x20AC;&#x201D; JULY : AUGUST 2016


W

hen the Hospitality Construction Services team collaborated with chef and restaurateur, Jeremiah Langhorne, to construct his debut restaurant, The Dabney, he was looking to pay homage to Mid-Atlantic cuisine and reinvent D.C.’s culinary identity. Working closely with architecture firm Edit Lab at Streetsense, the teams were able to create a space that honors the chef’s brand and vision.

When working on a project with as strong of a direction as The Dabney, it’s easy to be inspired by a historic vision. But when that vision becomes a budgetary stressor, sometimes the construction plan has to adapt and change. The Dabney, located on the historic 9th Street in Blagden Alley, takes inspiration from Langhorne’s own family lineage, which dates back over a century with roots deep in the Shenandoah Valley. Langhorne envisioned a menu and space that was reminiscent of the 19th Century, tying in both the flavor and style of our nation’s capital. The restaurant is located in a new building on this historic alley, so the teams didn’t have to worry about limiting factors, such as the permits and conditional complexities common in the historical structures on the surrounding blocks.

But the neighboring buildings on the street served as a huge resource for inspiration. When putting together plans for The Dabney’s outdoor garden, the architect met with the Historical Society of Washington, D.C., which presented numerous images of historic exteriors to ensure that this al fresco dining area honored the neighborhood’s past. In the end, they were able to find a photograph from early 1900s showing a carriage house in the alley. The architect was inspired by the image and replicated elements of the carriage house’s design for The Dabney’s two-story, multi-functional outdoor space. The ground floor doubles as a patio and a storage area for the restaurant’s hearth, while the roof hosts a 300-square-foot herb garden.

Staying true to the rustic theme, the menu centers around the cornerstone of the restaurant, a custom-built hearth that is 10 feet wide x 5 feet tall.

The hunt for the perfect idea

Hospitality Construction Services and Edit Lab at Streetsense spent a lot of time with Langhorne before construction, visiting restaurants such as Parts and Labor, which is owned by his close friend and fellow, chef Spike Gjerde. Built in a former automotive garage, Parts and Labor has white and natural wood throughout, which inspired the color palette of The Dabney. The restaurant also has an incredible 12-foot-long custom hearth, which influenced the kitchen design. The teams traveled all around Baltimore, reviewing old buildings to source inspiration from. They also visited separate areas in Westminster, Maryland and reclaimed lumber facilities to review old woods and antique materials that they

could incorporate into the construction. For example, the Dabney’s tables were made by Luke Steckel, the owner of a reclaiming company in Maryland. Construction started with a strong direction and vision. However, with all projects, unforeseen issues are inevitable, and they had to adapt their construction plans as such. For example, initially the teams had the idea that the entire space would be composed of period materials from the 1700s and 1800s, but soon realized that those materials were cost prohibitive. To achieve a similar look on a tight budget, they sourced materials that were old in style or reclaimed, which could be antiqued. For the floors, the original plan involved using reclaimed wood from a Baltimore vendor with employees that were formerly incarcerated. The company demolishes old buildings in the Baltimore area and repurpose the wood for building projects like this. They were thrilled to source reclaimed wood from a company with a cause, but when the bundles arrived, they contained traces of

lead paint and high moisture levels. Where they had planned to install reclaimed floors, they ended up sourcing new lumber that had an antique look. The new material provided better slip-resistance than what was originally specified, and also proved to be cost-effective. They still were able to use reclaimed wood throughout the rest of the restaurant – it can be seen in the millwork and as open shelving for dishes and additional storage. There were a lot of major highlights discovered throughout the process. The most beautiful feature in the restaurant is the handmade plaster that was designed to resemble traditional colonial style. Originally, the owner and architect wanted to paint over the plaster, but after seeing the end product, they decided it was too elegant to cover. No detail was overlooked at The Dabney, where exposed brick and wood floors give the space a rustic feel. Classic colors and finishes are used throughout the restaurant – brass fixtures and antique glass standout against the white and cream walls.

The Dabney takes inspiration from Langhorne’s own family lineage, which dates back over a century with roots deep in the Shenandoah Valley.

Up on the roof

Adorning the bar are antique, Victorian roofing shingles, which they descaled and refinished to remove old rust. A stunning old farm table was retrofitted for the space to create the chefâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s table, and spindle back chairs were added to complement the custom dining tables. Staying true to the rustic theme, the menu centers around the cornerstone of the restaurant, a custom-built hearth that is 10 feet wide x 5 feet tall. Although the restaurant has a fully functioning kitchen, most of the food is cooked using the log-burning hearth and cast-iron pots. It was a unique client request and a new challenge for the team.

No detail was overlooked at The Dabney, where exposed brick and wood floors give the space a rustic feel. And because the hearth is so essential to the menu, they made sure it was constructed exactly how the chef envisioned. It was a difficult undertaking, but well worth the effort once they saw the final product. Satisfying client expectations was the No. 1 priority on this project. All portions of the job were aggressively attacked to try to make sure everything was perfect. In the end, more than $200,000 was saved from concept to completion, and while the plan changed along the way, the result was an elegant and stunning tribute to a bygone era.

License to design Noted architect takes us inside the world of luxury resorts and casinos

J

By Ron Treister

oyen Vakil clearly is not your typical North American architect. Approachable, humble and low-key, the design director of world-class hospitality destinations such as Bellagio, ARIA and MGM Grand seemingly has found his occupational nirvana in America and, in a proud but gentle way, is on a mission to make tomorrow’s luxury resort architectural projects even better than today’s. Vakil, senior VP of design & development for MGM Resorts International, grew up in Mumbai, India, where he received his Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture, graduating as class Gold Medalist in both his first and fifth years of study. In 1989, he relocated stateside, pursuing his MS in Building Design at Arizona State University. He initially worked for a civil engineer, but, as fate would have it, relocated to Las Joyen Vakil Vegas less than a year later, joining a developer’s team. Roughly three years later, an architectural firm specializing in the resort/casino industry hired him. “It provided me with a great learning experience,” Vakil says. During that time, Vakil obtained his architectural licensure and NCARB certification and received his MBA. After leaving that firm, he managed the Las Vegas office for a national architectural firm. It was there that he was pursued by the local MGM, which he subsequently joined as director of architecture to head up its Architectural Department. The rest, as they say, is history. Commercial Construction & Renovation sat down with Joyen Vakil, senior VP of design & development for MGM Resorts International, to get his thoughts on the luxury resort hotel and casino market.

I think my favorite architectural projects are not yet even on the drawing board. I cannot wait to see what we’ll come up with next.

Give us some of design trends in the luxury resort hotels/casino market.

What’s trending now is for each individual property to focus cultivating product offerings and services upon the next generation. When the Millennials take over as being our No. 1 target market, what will they demand? What will they want? This is an ever-changing process, and if we are to push the envelope to optimal levels for our resorts’ clientele on an ongoing basis, we have no recourse but to know everything about this continually growing market segment. Re-invention is the key word. Technology is changing every transaction today. I remember my Dad, when leaving the house,

106

steadfastly making sure he had his keys and his wallet. Today, making sure you have your smartphone when leaving home is just as vital, if not more important. And many people, myself included, are now going "keyless" as well. My point being is that in particular, our hotel designs must fit in with this mammoth, ongoing re-invention necessity.

Is there an overall architectural and design “goal program” for MGM Resorts?

Perhaps the best way to answer that is to quote Einstein, “If you always do what you always did you will always get what you always got.” We completely agree with that mindset. MGM offers different design strategies developed to both complement and re-invent. We always want to raise the bar in every possible way. That might mean totally re-doing an existing property from top to bottom, inside and out or, just lightly tweaking another one. All of this is based upon knowing what our clientele of both today and tomorrow wants. I like to think that, immodestly; we get into their heads, way before they get into our rooms, restaurants and casinos.

Is there a specific mindset on how best to create a lavish pool environment?

Again, we must think “re-invention.” Years ago, the life of a resort’s pool area would basically stop every day at 7 p.m. That has changed. Now, it’s a nearby destination synonymous with relaxation around the clock – a place where one person or many come to decompress. For example, in locations such as Las Vegas or South Miami Beach, pool venues at major hotels have been totally re-purposed over the last decade. And this re-purposing is based totally on knowing the demographics of customers. Do they like to listen to music outdoors? Does the outdoor poolside bar have different offerings than what is being offered indoors? Do people enjoy dining poolside? All of this and more are considered prior to any architectural plans being created. Demographics drive design.

Are there any specific MGM Resort projects you consider your favorites?

They are all my favorites. Why? First of all, they are the end result of so much research and subsequent strategic thinking. And second, they are each a compilation of specific life properties. I love the classical references and overall execution at Bellagio. The contemporary design at ARIA is totally unique from my vantage point. Overall, I think my favorite architectural projects are not yet even on the drawing board. I cannot wait to see what we’ll come up with next. We have a highly professional, seasoned and forward-thinking team. As creators of hospitality establishments, what we produce must be our customers’ favorites.

You were a judge that helped select the winning backlit mosaic mural for the Las Vegas MGM Grand’s legendary “Wet Republic. ” With so many great submittals, why this one?

I liked the idea of getting the design community involved. The unveiling of this mural took place at the “Party by the Pool” during HD Expo. Attendees included well over 1,500 hospitality designers. Our new mural was an expression of tomorrow’s technology relative to producing this type of artwork. Visually, it was electrifying. The sponsors of the competition, Bostik and Artaic, exhibited strong versatility of production for this medium, offering an interesting forum for expression. From my standpoint, I was intrigued by the process of robotic mosaic mural production combined with a grouting material containing glass that further illuminated the glass mosaic tiles, giving the visual a life of its own. I also found and enjoyed the

process of deciding upon the best of so many excellent designs, to be quite awesome.

What do you see as the future for large-scale hospitality resort projects?

I’m fortunate to sit on the board of the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture, and intermittently travel to both Taliesin in Wisconsin and Taliesin West in Arizona to interface with both faculty and students. I’ve always been a fan of organic architecture and having this conduit with the talent of tomorrow helps me grow as well. I love how the students there have such a strong belief in bringing in organic materials at a macro level to their respective projects. And, through that mindset, it clearly appears that architectural design can indeed go full circle. It’s great to see more organic, natural materials brought back into design. I hope to see more of that within the arenas we participate as time goes on. CCR

Bringing back mosaic mural design included a bit of karma In early 2016, “Design ‘N Gather 2016” (DNG), the international mosaic design competition sponsored by Bostik (Bostik.com/us) and Artaic (artaic.com), went into full gear. For months, hundreds of mosaic enthusiasts had submitted mosaic mural designs based upon the theme, “The Essence of Las Vegas.” Semi-finalists and, ultimately, the winner, were to be selected by a panel of judges, all with strong industry ties. “We found ourselves in a conundrum,” says Scott Banda, Bostik’s director of marketing & business development. “We had ironed out the details of our contest with our marketing partner, Artaic, however, we didn’t have a high profile, prestigious location for it to be permanently installed.” As luck would have it, we came across the right person responsible for the perfect location to debut our winning mosaic.” In late February, “We attended HD Summit in late February, with just 10 weeks to decide upon a winner, have Artaic build that person’s

creation, and then have it shipped and subsequently installed in Las Vegas. At the Summit, we met Joyen Vakil, MGM Resorts’ Senior Vice President of Design & Development. He saw the benefits of our contest,

how we were focused on not only resurrecting an ancient architectural art-form… but also, how we intended to find new talent within the hospitality design sector and help these potential superstars with their careers. Within just a day or two, we began working with Joyen’s team on plans to permanently install

our winning mosaic creation,” Banda said. “I think it was meant to be.” The grand prize winner, Nicole Faith Kohri, had her creation “Delta Waves,” unveiled in front of 1,500 hospitality design professionals as a 20-foot x 8-foot backlit mosaic tile mural, installed on a poolside wall at MGM Grand’s “Wet Republic” HD Expo’s “Party By The Pool” event. The final tier of Design ‘N Gather 2016 concluded with another high note at the American Institute of Architects Convention in Philadelphia, where Banda and Dr. Ted Acworth, CEO and founder of Artaic, introduced Nicole Kohri, an inspiring architectural designer, at an industry party. “Bostik and Artaic want to bring back the popularity, appreciation and enthusiasm that comes along with true mosaic design,” Acworth said. “Together, we want to find highly talented, motivated young designers who see mosaics as their future. And if possible, we want to help them jump-start their design careers.”

rom a distance, the building stands majestic and commanding. Up close, the vibe is quite different. Disarming. Inviting. Accommodating. Charlotte’s gleaming-new Veterans Affairs Health Care Center (HCC) beautifully accomplishes dual objectives of saluting the thousands of men and women the facility will serve, and putting veterans at ease using the array of primary care and specialty services now at their disposal.

to care, broader-than-ever treatment and diagnostic options, and all-in-one convenience. The project team took special care to dispense with institutional tradition. Instead, the center welcomes veterans and their families into a bright, spacious, uplifting environment designed for easy navigation. “This has been many years in the making, and we’re excited to show you our brand new healthcare center. I truly believe you will be amazed at what you will see inside,” says ceremonial ribbon cutting speaker Kaye Green, director of the Salisbury VA Health Care System, which encompasses the new Charlotte facility.

The $104 million Charlotte HCC opened in April as one of the most advanced healthcare facilities of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Encompassing 430,000 square feet – 295,000 square feet dedicated to clinical use – the center also is the VA’s largest lease-acquisition medical facility. For the region’s exploding veteran population, the health center is world-class – promising easier-than-ever access

Covering 430,000 square feet – 295,000 square feet supporting clinical use – and employing ultramodern design concepts and tools, the VA HCC Charlotte provides outpatient primary and mental care, and many specialty services including operating rooms, radiation and imaging, and kidney dialysis units to one of the fastest growing veteran populations in the U.S. JULY : AUGUST 2016 — COMMERCIAL CONSTRUCTION & RENOVATION

Partners in the project’s dynamic melding of ideas, expectations and numbers crunching included the Department of Veterans Affairs; Childress Klein Properties and Cambridge Development Group, forming Childress Klein-Cambridge Healthcare Solutions; general contractor JE Dunn Construction, Charlotte office; and architect RPA Design of Charlotte. Childress Klein-Cambridge was formed to design, build and manage the building, which it owns and leases to the VA. The health center’s development was complex. Success with budgeting, scheduling and owner/user satisfaction revolved around an intense process of designing and pricing – Price, Evaluate, Enhance, Build. JE Dunn Construction consulted historical building cost data, tapped its large pool of subcontractors, manufacturers and suppliers, and called on the company’s in-house experts to support the design team and owner, ensuring that design documents aligned with the project’s budget and ambitious work scope. “JE Dunn was able to offer us a very competitive price on a highly complex job early in the process, with limited design information,” says Tom Coyle, a partner with Childress Klein. Throughout the job, in line with JE Dunn’s lean culture of continuous improvement, the general contractor, the design team and the building owner continued to explore ways to enhance the project. Working with this team not only on planning and coordinating, but also on adding value to the project, was quite a rewarding experience for the JE team. A fascinating and atypical element of the project was the imperative to accommodate two distinct, yet joined-at-the-hip clients – the developer and the VA. With that, came the need for JE Dunn to provide split pricing. For example, an area of the building that called for, say, five electrical outlets might require billing the VA for three units and the developer for two, based on each party’s unique budget, building performance needs, regulatory mandates (local, state, federal), and other singular considerations. “Sears Contract Inc. has worked on three separate, but similar VA medical centers for three separate contractors,”

The impressive six-story, brick and glass complex stands with a commanding presence on 35 acres near the Charlotte Douglas International Airport. Project features are specific to the unique needs of Veterans, including extra handicap and motorcycle parking and an extended three-vehicle canopy for simultaneous loading and unloading of patients.

Colorful wall murals of familiar places can be seen throughout the VA HCC Charlotte, encouraging an sense of security. Fountains, courtyards and quiet spaces contribute to the atmosphere of wellbeing and peace.

In the event that a patient needs to be seen by multiple specialists, the Patient Aligned Care Team (PACT) design allows patients to remain in one room while the doctors and nurses come as needed. Centralized workstations facilitate patient record collaboration among specialists directly outside of the room.

A large, two story entryway welcomes Veterans, complete with the official United States Department of Veteran Affairs seal custom in laid with terrazzo in the center of the room.

For a facility that was extremely complicated and detailed, the construction process was much more successful with JE Dunn coordinating and leading the way.” Significantly, the project overcame a bump early on when construction crews unexpectedly hit rock. Construction crews also made up 63 days lost to rain, snow and other nasty weather. All told, workers logged approximately 800,000 hours and completed the project with zero days lost to incidents. “This project was ahead of schedule and on or under budget, and that is a great

Smorgasbord of services

Cardiology, dermatology, audiology, women’s health, mental health, podiatry and prosthetics – all are among the more than 20 services planned to be provided by the health care center, which includes four operating rooms and 17 kidney dialysis units. With a single visit, a veteran will be able to fill a cavity, stitch a wound, get a pap test, pick-up prescriptions at the pharmacy, receive physical therapy – and more. An estimated 140,000 veterans live in metropolitan Charlotte, within the VA’s Salisbury district. This district is home


to some 250,000 ex-military women and men, and has one of the fastest growing veteran populations in the U.S. Offering outpatient services only and greatly expanding patient care provided by clinics in Charlotte, Kernersville and Asheville, and by the W.G. (Bill) Hefner VA Medical Center in Salisbury, the new center can accommodate 40,000 veterans annually (eligibility required). JE Dunn superintendent Ken Cornell can point out many inconspicuous but important construction methods and building features incorporated to save time, curtail expenses, eliminate waste, conserve energy, and achieve other objectives. For example, the building’s 292 precast metal wall panels were manufactured in Spartanburg, South Carolina, contributing regionally resourced materials. The facility’s blast-resistant design bolsters building security and protects occupants against explosion and toxic material releases. The use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) made it possible to prefabricate, among other things, all of the building’s overhead plumbing – with only a small bucket of scrap piping left over. The project is pursuing LEED Silver certification. Likewise, patients may be unaware of the VA’s service delivery model known as PACT (Patient Aligned Care Team). They are, however, likely to appreciate PACT’s benefits – engagement with a compassionate, coordinated care experience. Clinics and diagnostic areas, for exampe, are organized into neighborhoods laid out to encourage collaboration among caregivers and to facilitate the smooth flow of personnel behind the scenes. “It’s amazing – we’re going to do wonderful things here,” says Charles Stamper, Charlotte imaging supervisor who notes the facility’s ultra-modern technology and the spaciousness of radiation and fluoroscopy rooms. Clearly evident are the amenities that reflect commitment to veteran-centered caregiving and accommodation. The center’s 37-acre campus is five minutes from an interstate highway interchange. With 1,900plus parking spaces, there is abundant parking, including spots aplenty designated for motorcycles and bicycles. Handicap parking

is convenient to the building entrance, where a canopy can handily accommodate three vehicles simultaneously loading and unloading passengers. Inside the six-story, brick and glass building, a two-story tower bathes visitors in natural light, abundant throughout the facility. A cluster of touch-screen kiosks bids veterans to check-in electronically. Each floor has a canteen area. Each of the building’s three clinic floors is identified by a colorful wall mural with a familiar North Carolina nature theme – Grandfather Mountain and Cape Hatteras, for example – complementing on-site fountains, courtyards and quiet spaces that support healing and well-being.

Flexibility & Expansion

ospitals are buildings that are seen as a significant part of the community, because they provide a place of safety and care for individuals in need. Over time, their design and construction has changed to create a safer, more relevant and more efficient building for patients. New types of technology and building standards have affected how hospitals are being built. Over time, building codes are updated to ensure that structures are able to support our constantly changing environment. Developing new hospital designs and utilizing modern technology provides designers with the opportunity to create improved hospitals and meet the challenging needs of current and future patients.

Enacted in 1981, the Federal Research and Development (R&D) Tax Credit allows a credit of up to 13 percent of eligible spending for new and improved products and processes. Qualified research must meet the following four criteria: 1. New or improved products, processes or software 2. Technological in nature 3. Elimination of uncertainty 4. Process of experimentation

Flexibility is a significant aspect of a hospital design due to the constant changes and requirements that exist in the healthcare industry. There always are changes in the developments of diseases, introduction of new treatments and implementation of new technology. A building must be able to support all of these evolving aspects in order for a hospital to properly function. To provide the flexibility of a building, designs should contain mechanical and electrical systems that can be modified. Plans should include generic room sizes and the implementation of modular concepts for laying out rooms and spaces. In order to account for these changes, the core design of a hospital should be easy to adapt to any required additions or renovations in the future. To create a flexible structure for a hospital, rooms should be designated as soft and hard spaces and laid out accordingly. Soft spaces, such as an office, should be built next to a hard space which can be an operating room. The designated soft spaces should be easy to renovate in the future in order to expand certain hospital departments that need more room. Another form of creating flexible buildings is to construct a standardized room that can be used for various activities. This uniform room easily can be changed to support a different functional use when required.

Infection-Free Environment

It is imperative that a hospital is designed to provide a sanitized and clean environment. Certain spaces, furniture, lighting fixtures and hospital equipment should be chosen and positioned in a way that prevents any dirt or germs from sticking onto surfaces. Special materials, such as antimicrobial surfaces, should be utilized to provide a sterile environment. It also is important for

a hospital to implement a ventilation system that provides controlled circulation in order to maintain the air quality.

Negative Air Pressure Rooms

Negative air pressure systems usually are utilized in hospital rooms that serve to contain any form of contaminants from patients in the room. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has established certain guidelines that healthcare facilities should adhere to when installing or upgrading air handling units. Isolating these harmful contaminants, such as bacteria and viruses decreases the chance of individuals in other rooms coming in contact with any germs and becoming infected. Hospital rooms that usually contain negative air pressure include ER waiting rooms, airborne infection isolation rooms, restrooms, radiology waiting rooms, janitors’ closets and autopsy rooms. Negative air pressure rooms allow air to flow into the room, but won’t let any air escape the room. Positive air pressure rooms, such as operating rooms, are the opposite of negative pressure rooms and allow air to flow out of the room.

Current Design & Construction Trends

The “2016 Hospital Construction Survey” was conducted by Health Facilities Management to get a better insight on activities occurring within the healthcare industry. Approximately 200 hospitals of various

types participated in the survey. There has been an increasing growth in patient involvement in relation to the process of designing a hospital. More than half of the voters (63 percent) said they included patients and/or the community in the design process. A hospital is intended to provide support and services to the community it serves, so it’s important for hospitals to understand what patients, medical professionals and visitors feel are important to their design needs. Many hospitals are focusing on expansions or renovations rather than new construction. A large reason for this conversion is due to the high cost of new construction for outdated hospital facilities. The average cost of a construction project is around $400 per square foot, while in New York City the cost is a high amount of $1,200 per square foot. Hospitals are looking to reduce costs when updating their facilities and implementing expansions and/or renovations is an effective solution. Many of the expansions and/or renovations for hospitals focus on adding ambulatory care projects, emergency departments and surgery divisions, and the transition from standard patient rooms to critical care beds. To improve an existing hospital, the top efficient categories of equipment that are replaced or upgraded were air handlers and ventilation systems. Hospitals have to maintain a sterilized environment to decrease the amount of exposure patients may receive to any contaminants. Other types of technology that are upgraded are nurse call systems, fire alarms, sprinkler systems, security systems and patient

monitoring systems. All of these systems are used daily, so it’s imperative they are monitored to ensure the systems are working properly.

Resilient Hospital Designs

Natural hazards are unforeseen events that can greatly affect the operations and building structure of a hospital. There have been some devastating events that have occurred within the previous years which have had a large effect on the change in the structure and design of hospitals. Depending on the location of a hospital, designs can vary due to the environment the building exists in. For example, some areas are prone to flooding, while others may be affected by earthquakes. Hospitals in these different environments require different building designs to withstand certain natural hazards.

To provide a resilient structure, steel beams that each weighed 20-25 tons were installed to construct the frame of the building. Before the design was constructed at the site, it was tested at the University of Nevada, Reno, which has an area dedicated to testing designs against simulations of earthquakes with high magnitudes. It can be challenging to design a hospital that meets all of the required performance standards, but with proper planning and testing procedures a strong structure can be built to protect against earthquakes.

Prefabrication

One of the construction methods to create a quicker and more efficient construction process is to prefabricate certain parts of the building. Utilizing BIM software in combination with prefabricating materials is beneficial for projects, especially ones that have to be completed within a small timeframe. BIM modeling software can help architects and hospital owners save time and money by determining if there are any clashes that exist before constructing a facility. While this may provide a quicker process, it requires a large amount of coordination and planning. Coordination is required early on during the construction process to determine that the right materials and equipment contain the right measurements and are being laid out correctly. When the prefabricated units are put in the building, they have to be able to fit and function properly with the existing building. For some units, construction workers have to connect electrical and mechanical systems to the units, which is where the importance of planning comes in.

Use of Natural Light

Earthquakes

Seismic standards are developed in order for buildings to stay upright during any earthquakes and its potential aftershocks. California is a state that is prone to many earthquakes, which is why the state requires strict building standards when designing a structure, because the building has to withstand probable seismic activity. The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), constructed a medical center that was designed to stand up against an 8.0 Richter Magnitude earthquake or greater. When designing the building, architects had to follow standards for creating a structure that would be able to withstand a 70-mph wind speed and heavy rain conditions.

Hospitals should provide an aesthetically pleasing and comfortable environment for patients, as well as doctors. A facility should contain the appropriate lighting, ease of movement around the building and appropriate wall colors. Providing natural light and outdoor views can positively affect how a patient is feeling. Rooms and equipment should be spaced out in a way that gives physicians the quickest route to each room and ease of access to medical equipment when caring for patients. Design and construction trends always are changing and improving to meet the growing needs of current and future patients. There are many factors that designers have to consider when designing a hospital. The building should provide a comfortable and sterile environment for patients, as well as, doctors. The structure of a building should have a flexible design in order for future expansions and improvements to occur. With the implementation of new technology and construction designs, hospitals have become improved to create more efficient and durable buildings.

Making

Understanding the world of warranties By Michelle Schaap

I

n the commercial construction setting, warranties can be written to commence as of substantial or final completion, date of beneficial use or another agreed triggering event. The commencement date and duration of a warranty can greatly impact a contractor’s financial and performance obligations for a project as well as for future work. As an owner, the commencement and duration of warranties, and the types of warranties given, impact whether the owner will have the benefit of a contractor knowledgeable with the project to make timely repairs at no additional cost to the owner.

The Contractors

For a contractor, whether warranties commence upon substantial or final completion, the timing difference ideally would be no more

120

than 60 days – the projected period for completion of punch list items, resolution of open change orders and delivery of closeout documents. But if the project close out is extended due to disputes with owner, the warranty that commences on final completion may not start for more than 90 days following substantial completion. With the warranty period extended, the contractor can be negatively impacted in various ways, including his ability to fulfill obligations on future projects, his bonding capacity and his bottom line. For subcontractors conducting work in the earliest stage of a project, the impact of the commencement of warranty periods can be far greater. If a subcontractor completes an access road, other contractors then will use that roadway for site access long before project completion. If subcontractor’s warranty period commences only upon completion of the entire project, its accepted work may be subjected to substantial wear and tear long before the commencement of the warranty period, requiring the subcontractor to effectively provide a warranty extending from the completion of his work, through completion of the project (perhaps a year or two later), and then through one or two years thereafter. If a project is suspended for any reason, wear and tear on work already performed likely would cause satisfactorily installed work to prematurely age, requiring warranty repairs that might not have otherwise arisen had the project progressed in accordance with its original schedule. In negotiating warranties, contractors should be mindful of future projects. Contractors must consider the need to pull forces from the next project to return to a completed project for warranty work. If warranty work requires special equipment already redeployed for new work, the new project could be delayed while resources are pulled to fulfill warranty obligations for a prior job. For a bonded job, a delayed completion date will tie up the contractor’s bonding capacity further – particularly if a warranty bond is required, too. Contractors should be prepared to stand behind the quality of their workmanship and materials. When negotiating warranty commencement dates and durations, however, contractors should give careful consideration as to how their work relates to the project overall; whether their completed work will be impacted by other (subsequent) work and/or delays, and to plan and protect themselves accordingly for the instant project as well as for future commitments.

COMMERCIAL CONSTRUCTION & RENOVATION — JULY : AUGUST 2016


The Owners

When an owner hires a contractor, he expects to receive a quality product that he can use and occupy for many years. The owner expects the contractor to correct non-conforming or deficient work, and that this work be performed promptly – and at no cost to him. The owners should consider the commencement of the warranty: Ideally, warranties will not commence until final completion. But contractors may press for warranties to commence on substantial completion. In theory, the only open issues as of substantial completion (the criteria for which should be carefully defined) should be punch list items. Nevertheless, the owner’s preference should be for warranties to run from final completion, with deficiencies in work before that date being part of contractor’s scope of work under the contract, prior to commencement of the warranty period. The owner should consider warranty duration. Contractors generally will offer no more than one year. Depending upon the nature of the work, the complexity of the construction, and the systems serving the project, a longer warranty may be more appropriate. How and when a warranty will run with multi-phased projects should also be considered. If Phase 1 is completed on Day 1, and Phase 2 is not completed until Day 180, the owner should consider whether one warranty for both phases would commence on Day 180. Or, alternatively, the owner may prefer two warranties – one for Phase 1, commencing on Day 1, and a second warranty for the entire project, commencing on completion of all phases. If the warranty work is performed in the first year of a twoyear warranty, the owner should mandate that the warranty for the repaired work begin anew (another full two-year warranty period). If accepted, contractors may require an outside expiration date (e.g., three years from substantial completion), by which the warranty will expire for both original work and repaired work. Warranties should be clear as to scope and standard. Will work be built to “accepted industry standards,” or in accordance with “best industry practices?” At a minimum, contractors should warrant that materials are new when installed, work will be executed and completed in accordance with plans, and performed in a good, workmanlike manner. If a warranty claim is asserted, parts and labor should be covered. If conforming work must be removed to access deficient work, the contractor also should bear the cost to remove and reinstall conforming work (“in and out” costs). The contractor should be required to respond to a warranty claim within an agreed time frame. The contractor should agree to

return to the project and effect warranty work within (e.g.) 10 days. If the contractor fails to undertake warranty work, the owner should be able to self-perform and require contractor to reimburse owner. Of course, the owner may then have to pursue the original contractor for such reimbursement; and the owner should consider, including an attorneys’ fee clause in the underlying contract to cover the costs of such an action. The owners should consider whether “special” warranties are appropriate for particular equipment or systems (e.g. an elevator or HVAC system), meriting longer warranty periods. With such warranties, owners should be mindful as to which entity is providing the warranty: the contractor or the manufacturer.

As with many issues in negotiation and performance of construction agreements, the interests of the contractors and the owners are competing and conflicting as to warranty undertakings. For manufacturer warranties, the owner should confirm if: • The manufacturer is reputable – if the manufacturer is out of business or untraceable after completion, the warranty may be worthless • The manufacturer has insurance with a reputable carrier • The warranty is assignable from contractor to owner • The scope of warranty coverage, including parts, labor and shipping costs • Only manufacturer-certified contractors can maintain the system – and what activities could void the warranty • There can be committed timing for warranty claim resolution Finally, if the owner has concerns regarding the contractor’s financial stability or reliability as to execution of warranted work, he should mandate financial support for warranty work, by warranty bond, letter of credit or other assurance. As with many issues in negotiation and performance of construction agreements, the interests of the contractors and the owners are competing and conflicting as to warranty undertakings. While contractors seek to limit warranty obligations, owners press to maximize such protection. Ideally, construction work will be performed in the first instance in accordance with agreed upon plans and standards; but when work or components fail, the terms of the warranty will define which party will bear the time and expense to redress the same.

PUBLISHER LETTER Dear Reader,

Several of us from The McIntosh Group recently attended an event where David Dillon, former CEO of Kroger, spoke about growing a resilient business. His point was really that in business, if you aren’t moving forward, you’re moving backward. Our world is constantly changing, so if you don’t continually take the time to reassess and adjust, you won’t be around very long. When you’re doing well, it’s easy to be complacent. It’s when the chips are down that we must get out of our own way and let real innovation have a chance to happen. This kind of transformation has happened within my own company multiple times, and we’ve always gotten better because of it. In fact, earlier this year I was invited to go to Washington, D.C., to accept a state “Small Business Person of the Year” award from the one and only Mark Cuban. How cool is that? Commercial construction has had a lot of momentum so far this year. Construction Market Data reports that commercial construction starts over the first quarter of 2016 were 9.6 percent higher than last year. Now is the time to pause and reflect. Are the things you are doing with your businesses today preparing you for the world you’ll live in tomorrow? In this issue, we will pay homage to the past, appreciate today’s design, and address the implications of tomorrow’s changing demographics. We will address how to plan for the needs of a wave of aging baby boomers, also called the “Silver Tsunami,” as they relate to the built environment. When we anticipate the needs of our customers, we will remain relevant, prosperous, and resilient.

Lanny McIntosh, AIA

TRANSFORMATIONAL PEOPLE

A life well served Before the ADA, there was Russell Heriford. Here’s why his story matters Special thanks to Miranda Fairchild of Tulsa, Okla. for allowing us to share her grandfather’s inspiring story.

Russell W. Heriford of Claremore, Okla. served in World War II as a paratrooper, discovering a love for airplanes. From then on, he knew he wanted to fly; but during his service, he was shot in the spine and became a paraplegic. When he returned home at the age 25, doctors told him it was unlikely he would survive very long due to his injury. But Heriford didn’t listen. He continued to live another 50 years, accomplishing every goal he ever set, including becoming the first paraplegic to get a pilot’s license. In a time before the Americans with Disabilities Act and accessible design, Heriford was determined to experience his life to the fullest. He patented the first standing support for paraplegics in 1960, an adjustable, collapsible device that would enable a paraplegic of any height to “maintain an upright standing position and to propel himself under his own power from one place to another.” In addition to this groundbreaking invention, Heriford also ran a farm in Niangua, Mo., which he made completely accessible. He modified his cars with a hand control made from PVC pipe so he could continue to drive. He was an inventor, a preacher, a veteran, a pilot, and a beloved husband, father and grandfather. In 2000, Heriford passed away at 75 years old, but his legacy lives on.

The Silver Tsumani

How aging boomers are changing how we think and build

Several years ago, in a speech outlining six disruptive demographic trends that would require change, Dr. James Johnson’s prognostications laid the groundwork for the myriad transformations today’s brands are having to deal with across all segments.

What Dr. Johnson, director of the Urban Investment Strategies Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, said was that our communities and businesses were going to change dramatically. “Agility, flexibility, accommodation is the order of the day,” Dr. Johnson told members of the National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) members. “If you try one-size-fits-all, it’s going to be my way or the highway, you’re going to be on the highway all by yourself.” While some businesses have been able to succeed a little longer using older, stricter work models for their employees and patrons, changing demographics in the workforce and consumer world are demanding a new way of doing things. That brings us to No. 4 on Dr. Johnson’s list, a topic that is near and dear to the commercial construction industry – the “Silver Tsunami is about to hit.” Depending on what study you read, the older population – persons 65 years or older – numbered 46.2 million in 2014 (the latest year for which data is available). This aging group represents 14.5 percent of the U.S. population, about one in every seven Americans. By 2040, people 65-plus are expected to grow to 21.7 percent of the population, and nearly 98 million by 2060, according to the Administration on Aging (AoA). Those are important numbers today, especially when you look at companies in the retail, restaurant and hospitality sectors working to comply to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). “While many property owners have experienced first-hand how an ADA lawsuit can have a detrimental impact on a company’s finances and reputation, others still are unclear on what exactly the ADA Standards are and why they must be followed,” says Brad Gaskins, AIA, CASP, NCARB, principal and COO for The McIntosh Group.

SILVER TSUNAMI Gaskins, who has more than 30 years experience in the practice of architecture and a comprehensive understanding of professional practice nationwide, says that ADA is a sleeping giant that is just beginning to stir. “The ADA has been a Civil Rights Law for more than 25 years, and businesses are still catching up. ADA lawsuits are on the rise across the country. It’s much better to be proactive about compliance, both to avoid litigation and to better serve your customers.” As we have seen, this trend demands new levels of flexibility in the workplace and beyond. The race to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) continues to be one of the biggest areas of emphasis for brands in the retail, restaurant and hospitality sectors. Requirements include wheelchair ramps, accessible stalls, accessible parking, lifts, and other items designed to assist the physically disabled. The ADA addresses a much broader array of issues than just wheelchair accessibility. It also is requiring facilities to make adjustments for people who are visually and hearing impaired, and have trouble sitting down, standing up and walking stairs. Gaskins says there has been a rise in the number of ADA lawsuits filed against businesses and facilities for alleged violations over the last few years. With the advent of the Silver Tsunami, the number of lawsuits is poised to increase. Now is the time for change. The average cost of an ADA settlement is nearly $15,000.

“Agility, flexibility, accommodation is the order of the day.” – Dr. James Johnson, Director, Urban Investment Strategies Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

ways to prepare for the Silver Tsunami Competing in a world with increasing demand for accessibility means being prepared. Here’s how to get started:

No. 1

Know how you’re doing

First, understand the ADA basics. Consult with a licensed architect specializing in ADA compliance and have them conduct an ADA audit on the facility.

132

No. 2

Develop a written implementation plan

Data from the audit can be used to create an access plan to remove barriers within a time frame that works for your budget. ADA enforcement does not insist on complete and immediate compliance, but having a plan will show that you have it under control.

COMMERCIAL TRANSFORMATIONS JULY/AUGUST 2016 ISSUE 3 MCINTOSHTRANSFORMS.COM


“Knowledge is the key to starting your path to meet the Silver Tsunami head on. Begin by educating yourself on the basic requirements of the ADA.” – Brad Gaskins, Principal & COO, The McIntosh Group The best defense against ADA lawsuits is to begin the process of removing accessibility barriers (see sidebar, “4 Ways to Prepare for the Silver Tsunami”). Barriers are aspects of the built environment which lessen a disabled person’s access. The removal process starts by assessing what needs to be done and then putting in place plans, procedures and policies to guide implementation. “Knowledge is the key to starting your path to compliance,” Gaskins says. “Begin by educating yourself on the basic requirements of the ADA. Consult with an expert who can give you specific details related to your business and perform accessibility audits of your facilities. Then, create a plan of action.”

No. 3

Execute against the plan

The ADA standards require businesses to remove barriers to the extent that they are readily achievable. Continuing barrier removal obligations should be incorporated into both short-term and longterm business planning. Keeping a record of this process should be part of your accessibility plan.

No. 4

Let the law be your guide

ADA compliance is the law, but it’s also good business. Americans with disabilities represent a profitable consumer market. When your business is inclusive for individuals with disabilities, everybody wins. For information, try the United States Access Board website (www. access-board.gov) and the U.S. DOJ ADA website (www.ada.gov). The DOJ also offers a toll-free ADA information line for assistance.

New Jackson Technical building design reflects business culture


Downtown Tulsa, Okla., is home to some of the most brilliant examples of Art Deco architecture in the nation, yet, at the same time, it includes abandoned box buildings and unkempt parking lots. This quickly is changing, as small, local businesses are popping up like fresh wildflowers and transforming the “vibe” of Downtown Tulsa into a creative, business-friendly and arts-focused hub.

JACKSON TECHNICAL BUILDING Tulsa-based IT business Jackson Technical is experiencing major growth. Owners Tim and Ashley Jackson wanted to compound their expansion as a company with the community’s exciting growth. Together with The McIntosh Group and engineering consultants, they started looking for ways to make Jackson Technical’s new building reflect its unique business services and culture. “We are thrilled to experience continued growth in such a competitive industry,” says Tim Jackson. “This new headquarters signifies our commitment to maintain a superior level of customer service to our existing and future clients. We are excited to see what the technology and computer industry future holds as we expand into this exciting new venture.”

On the fast track Founded in 1999, Jackson Technical is a team of Tulsa computer experts providing small businesses with solutions for all their computer and communication support needs. It has been listed in the “Inc. 5000’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America” in 2013, 2014 and 2015, and has been included in the Tulsa Business Journal’s “Tulsa’s Fast 40” growing businesses the last four years.

“We knew this would provide a thoughtful and elegant composition for the overall building, and give Jackson Technical a memorable identity in Downtown Tulsa.” – Ted A. Reeds, II, AIA, Senior Associate & Project Manager, The McIntosh Group

The Jacksons have a very specific vision about the culture and the growth of their company. Just like Tulsa itself, Jackson Technical is a unique place. The built environment should reflect that. The McIntosh Group design team, including Lanny McIntosh, AIA – Principal and Architect of Record, Ted Reeds, AIA – Project Manager, Jesse Husmann, AIA – Design Team, and Benjie Morillo, Assoc. AIA – Design Team, used inspiration from the simple, yet flexible server rack as the basis of the building design.

136

COMMERCIAL TRANSFORMATIONS JULY/AUGUST 2016 ISSUE 3 MCINTOSHTRANSFORMS.COM


The server rack is a product that Jackson Technical works with every day and provides a firm structure, yet allows each piece inside to be treated individually and to evolve with time. The building design is meant to reflect technology and the work going on inside the building. One could also draw a metaphor from the design, that it reflects the corporate culture of Jackson Technical. The company is very “non-hierarchical.” The Jacksons believe in allowing their trusted and skilled employees a great deal of individual

"This new headquarters signifies our commitment to maintain a superior level of customer service to our existing and future clients." – Tim Jackson, Founder, Jackson Technical

freedom. Jackson Technical provides a basic structure of principles and then allows them to manage their clients in their own personal manner, similar to the basic server rack structure. Perhaps Ted Reeds, Senior Associate and Project Manager at The McIntosh Group, summed it up best: “When we started putting this design together with Tim – literally drawn on a beverage napkin over an after-work meeting – we knew this would provide a thoughtful and elegant composition for the overall building, and give Jackson Technical a memorable identity in Downtown Tulsa.”

ADA Q&A

What is the ADA requirement for Gender Neutral Restrooms? This is not a disability issue, and there is no work on this related to the ADA that we are aware of.

Do state ADA guidelines act as a companion document or extensions to the national guidelines?

A complaint is not required for the DOJ to take action. The DOJ can take action at any time at their own authority.

There are no state ADA guidelines. There are building codes such as the ANSI A117.1, CBC Chapter 11, Florida Accessibility Standards, and the Texas Accessibility Standards that must be complied with as part of the construction process. California and Massachusetts, for example, also have a state civil rights law that mimics and in some instances exceeds the ADA. The requirement would be that the most stringent requirement of the ADA Standards, the state standards or local building code would need to be complied with.

Is the fire marshal the only building official who enforces ADA guidelines? The fire marshal has no authority to enforce the ADA Standards. The ADA can

only be enforced through a lawsuit filed by a defendant who has standing to do so. The fire marshal, however, can be required by local ordinances to enforce the local or state building code which may very well mimic the ADA Standards. The ADA is a civil rights law and not a building code, and no local or state official can enforce the standards.

Must a complaint be filed by someone in order for the DOJ to investigate an ADA violation? No. A complaint is not required for the DOJ to take action. The DOJ can take action at any time on their own authority.

How are municipalities (county and city) allowed to exempt their projects from meeting ADA guidelines? Municipalities are not allowed to exempt their projects from compliance with the ADA. They are, however, required to comply with Title II in lieu of Title III of the ADA, which is a program accessibility requirement in lieu of a physical facility requirement.

PARTNER SPOTLIGHT

Spotlight on... Wallace Engineering Lately, my email inbox has been inundated with messages from people who want to sell me something. So far this week, I’ve received offers from folks wanting to redo our website, optimize our SEO, sell me 10,000 contacts in my industry, introduce their cleaning service, provide hotel accommodations for site visits and, my favorite, be “my” bollard manufacturer. Besides being lazy and impersonal, these messages show that the senders clearly have done no research into what goods or services I might need. Studies show their chance of success of making a deal using such methods is less than one-tenth of one percent, but still they come. Can you imagine sending out an email blast to unknown recipients along the lines of, “We can build your building for less” or “Forgive me for reaching out like this, but do you need any structural engineering help?” Of course not. Why? Because we work in a relationship-based industry. At its heart, the architectural/engineering/construction world turns on the axis of relationships. People want to work with people they like and trust. We want our day-to-day interactions to be meaningful and productive. Don’t believe it? Think of your Top 10 clients. Who are they? Do you just consider them clients or are they friends? What are their likes and dislikes? Do you just talk business or do you talk about their lives? I’m willing to bet that your best – and probably favorite – clients are people you also consider friends. The same goes for people you hire as consultants and subcontractors. Do you just hire them or do you truly enjoy working with them? The best AEC teams I’ve been involved with were made up of companies that communicated well, focused on getting things done, and worked on creating relationships along with creating a building. Focusing on a team culture is crucial to a company’s success and it should be taught at all levels of the organization. A firm with a team

culture understands a truly successful project is one where all members – owner, contractor, architect, engineers – are successful, not just one or two entities. Team members must be willing to communicate regularly and freely, and be open to suggestions and, yes, criticism. At Wallace Engineering, we work to build relationships at all levels with our clients and their clients. Historically, the primary relationship was initiated from the interaction between firm principals, top construction officials and project owners. It’s important, though, to also stress relationship building at the associate/project manager/superintendent and the project engineer/project architect/construction engineer levels.

Editor’s Note: Business is all about relationships, and The McIntosh Group has a strong and lasting relationship with our friends at Wallace Engineering. This quarter’s Partner Spotlight is with Wallace Engineering Principal Brad Thurman, who shares his perspective on the importance of relationships.

Brad Thurman, PE, FSMPS, CPSM

Being able to communicate horizontally across a project at all levels makes working together run more smoothly. It builds respect for peers and makes conflict resolution easier. Most of all, it can solidify a partnership that lasts over the years as senior members retire and younger staff moves into leadership positions. Our relationship with The McIntosh Group is a perfect example. Our history goes back to the mid 1980s, when a few 20 and 30-somethings started working on projects together. Today, those people are owners of our companies and meet regularly. Our marketing departments work and serve on committees together, and a new generation of 20 and 30-somethings are connecting with each other. In this day and age of impersonal electronic communication, when it’s easy to fire off an email and assume it solves a problem, I encourage you to think differently. Pick up the phone. Make a call. Meet in person. Encourage two-way communication. Build relationships that transcend the project. I promise you won’t be sorry and everyone will be better for it.

Focusing on a team culture is crucial to a company’s success and it should be taught at all levels of the organization.

Brad Thurman, PE, FSMPS, CPSM is a principal and CMO at Wallace Engineering. He joined Wallace in 1987 and has been involved in marketing and business development since 1997, helping lead Wallace’s marketing efforts across two disciplines and six offices.

And breathe... Why it's time for the commercial construction sector to relax

T

he time is now and the place is the United States. Activity in the commercial sector has picked up. General repartee is optimistic about opportunities, rather than

pessimistic about an embattled economy. The byproduct is that people are focused, anxious and eager to grab what hasn’t been available for so long. They’re also working harder and longer than they did a few years ago and, as a result, many are very tired. So what are they doing? They’re getting buzzed. In 2015, sales of energy drinks, energy shots and energy drink mixes in the United States eclipsed $13 billion, up from $8 billion in 2011. Today, Americans are drinking more coffee than ever before. The United States imports in excess of $4 billion worth of coffee per year, and its citizens consume 400 million cups of coffee per day, making the United States the leading consumer of coffee in the world.

On an average, 250 cups of espresso and coffee drinks are sold every day at almost any espresso drive-thru business with a great visible location. Independent coffee shops manage to sell 31 percent of espresso-based drinks, while the rest is brewed coffee.

By Ron Treister

All of this is great for our economy, no question. And, let’s face it – 20 years ago, how many internet coffee shops were there in this country compared to right now? Most working Americans, especially during their workday, would much prefer a casual meeting at the local espresso bar rather than their neighborhood saloon. But let’s look at reality. How healthy is all that caffeine? To what degree have American workers developed a much larger dependency on it? And, additionally, what about energy drinks? Sure, some of them contain “good stuff,” such as taurine, guarana and ginseng. But many include sugar or artificial sweeteners and, of course, caffeine. Sugar isn’t always bad for you, but in high amounts may be very unhealthy, particularly in drink form,

The commercial construction sector clearly has an obligation to create buildings that are safe for all the workers and visitors who are inside at all times.

JULY : AUGUST 2016 — COMMERCIAL CONSTRUCTION & RENOVATION

141


AND BREATHE... because we keep drinking it without our bodies recognizing the sugar intake, meaning we’ll stay hungry. Most energy drinks contain 30 grams of sugar per serving, and not a whole lot of important nutrients. Artificial sweeteners used in both coffee energy drinks offer a lot of controversy regarding how they may affect one’s body. Combine all of those “wake me up/get me alert” exercises with the fact that those inside so many commercial buildings, both new and old structures, are breathing very bad air.

Building materials may emit volatile organic chemicals (VOCs). Some buildings may be poorly ventilated, so stale, stagnant air is what is being taken in. Some older structures even may have next to no ventilation systems at all.

Stepping up to the plate

The commercial construction sector clearly has an obligation to create buildings that are safe for all the workers and visitors who are inside at all times. Those who maintain their respective businesses within these structures have both moral and economic obligations to keep their people as healthy as possible. Stocking up the company canteen with extra coffee machines and a heavy inventory of energy drinks is not the answer. So, what is?

Robert McDonald, national sales manager for Blueair, a Swedish firm that markets its air purification systems to more than 50 countries worldwide, says the first step is to offer everyone inside any commercial building the luxury of breathing good, clean fresh air. “Our commitment is to exceed industry standards, to create products that combine unparalleled performance, technological innovation with modern Swedish design," McDonald says. "Never satisfied, we continually strive to discover smarter clean air solutions to ensure that the air people will breathe is as clean and pure as nature intended." This passion for clean air led to the creation of many world-leading air purifiers for the commercial sector. These products include HEPA Silent – a technology that offers air quality without all the unwanted noise. Sometimes “white noise” isn’t always wanted noise. As a commercial construction professional, imagine offering the highest Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) with the lowest noise levels for performance delivered silently, effectively, and stylishly. (That sounds pretty good, doesn’t it?) McDonald says that responsible construction professionals should focus upon creating an environment where people can breathe healthier air – whether working alone or with others. “Breathing clean air has a significantly positive effect on well-being,” he says. “Including high quality air purification systems will protect tenants, their staff members and their visitors from the many negative consequences of indoor air pollution. Additionally, their breathing ‘good air’ will increase their energy levels, promote a clearer mental state, improve circulation and, ultimately, result in better overall performance within the workplace.” Blueair produces air purifications modules in a variety of sizes and shapes to best fit in with any commercial interior design. Modules have the ability to automatically test particle and gas levels of the building’s indoor air and adjust fan speed to maintain the optimal clean-air environment. “People don’t realize they’re breathing in bad stuff while they’re working,” McDonald says. “It’s our mantra to get rid of gaseous pollutants such as Volatile Organic Compounds that include formaldehyde, tobacco smoke and other highly noxious airborne particles.” Sick building syndrome (SBS) is a term used to describe situations in which building occupants experience acute health and comfort effects that appear to be linked to time spent in a building, but unfortunately… no specific illness or cause can be identified. “We’re sick and tired of Sick Building Syndrome,” McDonald says. “We’re doing whatever we can to remedy this problem. And we’re doing it with just about every breath that we take." CCR

The Intelligent Jobsite A look at how technology is changing the game far today's construction teams

COMMERCIAL CONSTRUCTION & RENOVATION â&#x20AC;&#x201D; JULY : AUGUST 2016


N

ot all that long ago, the most advanced technology being deployed on a jobsite was a copy machine and a calculator. We have come a long way, as some of today’s high-tech project sites feature technology that would have been considered science

fiction in decades past. I believe there are three principal catalysts for this rapid evolution of technology: 1. The U.S. Department of Commerce Technology Administration – National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) funded a study in 2004 entitled Cost Analysis of Inadequate Interoperability in the U.S. Capital Facilities Industry. This study concluded that the AEC industry was behind all other industries, with the exception of farming, when it relates to the adoption of technology to conduct business. The billions of dollars of waste due to the inefficiencies in capital projects alone got the attention of the federal government, most particularly the GSA. (http://fire.nist.gov/ bfrlpubs/build04/PDF/b04022.pdf) 2. T he introduction of Building Information Modeling (BIM) practices, standards and software technology. While the initial adoption curve of BIM standards was relatively slow, the rate of current adoption and the ensuing breadth of projects that leverage these practices has put significant demands of technology usage on current projects. When the GSA mandated that all federal projects use BIM it had a widespread affect with contractors looking for work during industry low points in 2008, which subsequently forced these firms to embrace more technology usage on their projects. 3. A n incredible development pace being set by both software and technology hardware providers. Computers are getting smaller and more powerful. Smartphones are in everyone’s pocket. Businesses and consumers are all using Cloud storage and services. Digital displays have higher resolution and printers are faster, cheaper and print at higher res too. Add to that all of the innovation being seen in 3D

laser scanning equipment, Virtual Reality and Visualization tools using gaming engines, and we are experiencing technology that not long ago we could hardly even imagine. Who in this country hasn’t heard about 3D printing and drones? Firms of all sizes are embracing these technologies on projects that range from a few millions dollars in total value, to the one billion dollar and higher mega projects. We even are seeing the creation of new positions within these firms to address these needs. BIM Managers now have been around for a few years, but the title VDC (Virtual Design and Construction) Manager or Engineer has started to show up in firms across the country. This also has led to relatively new terms like Information Mobility, which elicits the concept of using and sharing the right data on the right device, or medium, at the right time. There are many examples and use cases of this happening from both the clients and the vendors providing these products or services. In the end, of course contractors are paid to build buildings and the technology is only supposed to assist in that process. Applying these technologies and developing the best practices to meet the actual business challenges the technology addresses is the priority.

“When fulfilling major contracts, clear communication and accurate documentation is essential to get the job done on time and under budget. Finding the best way to do this when working with a multitude of subcontractors has a tremendous impact on our success.” – Chad Neukirch, Area Superintendent, Southeast District, Hensel Phelps

Technology designed to enhance communication and collaboration has been one of the

JULY : AUGUST 2016 — COMMERCIAL CONSTRUCTION & RENOVATION

145


THE INTELLIGENT JOBSITE areas where we have seen significant enhancements. BIM platforms such as Revit® have converted the standard 2D AutoCAD® process that consists of lines and arcs into a 3D model that is created using a database that includes a tremendous amount of metadata to use during design, build, testing and other project phases. NavisWorks® software enables users to review integrated models and data with everyone on the project. The adoption of these BIM tools certainly has had a tremendous impact on the collaboration happening around the project, and has brought on another term widely used around the project site, “BIM Coordination Meeting.” Williams Scotsman, the largest construction trailer rental company in the world, developed a delivery method called techsuite™. As the name implies, this high-tech trailer solution is what they call their “Answer to BIM” in the field. Their clients now can order a trailer fully decked out with whatever technology needed to either purchase or rent for the duration of the project. This practice has helped contractors of all sizes embrace the latest technology simply by adding it to the monthly rent. Williams Scotsman recognizes that one of the greatest changes they have seen is that the traditional plan table is being replaced with digital displays. Oftentimes, these displays have interactive touch capabilities that work well with the popular document management solutions being used today like Bluebeam Revu® , PlanGrid and SmartUse by Newforma. Many of the largest Fortune 500 tech firms also are developing new products specifically designed to serve the AEC industry. Hewlett Packard has been entrenched in the AEC industry for many years. During 2015 they announced truly innovative solutions for the jobsite and AEC offices. Their new PageWide Technology production printer spits out blueprints as fast as a copy machine makes a copy. The device they announced at Autodesk University, the Design Jet T830, was designed specifically for the construction site, and includes enhancements like being WiFi enabled, faster speed, and, best of all, a much lower price than previous devices.

“We’ve been using the HP T830 printer/scanner/ copier on site at our large hospital project in Atlanta. It has proven to be a very valuable jobsite tool, allowing us to print everything from plans to full size architectural color renderings for use in planning and coordinating meetings, which not only saves us time, but saves us money, as we don’t have to outsource those printing services.” – Steve Karp, Project Director, McCarthy Building Companies Inc.

Most people probably saw the announcement when Facebook bought the Virtual Reality platform Oculus for billions of dollars. How many people stopped to wonder how that would impact communication and collaboration in AEC? Unity, the largest gaming engine in the world did. Couldn’t you just see what would happen if you pair the actual geometry from a Revit® file to a gaming engine. It turns a real project in to Call of Duty®. Not the guns and bombs of course, but the ability to free roam throughout a non-existent building in an

immersive experience could have a real impact on the low tech users throughout the entire AEC industry. Unity evaluated the AEC industry for nearly two years, anticipating there could be a significant opportunity, as this still technology maturing industry started to adopt visualization tools and related practices. Their final decision was to partner with a firm that has extensive experience in the AEC industry that could help them meet their objectives in a much shorter term. VIMtrek™ was developed on the Unity platform and already had built an application that converts Revit® content into the gaming engine while leaving all of the Revit® metadata intact.

“Manipulating large and complex Revit® files to convey critical information pertaining to a high profile, mega project can be a daunting task. Utilizing visualization tools such as Samsung Gear VR, VIMtrek and Unity enabled our project team to communicate more effectively, collaborate in a virtual environment, and minimize project delays, therefore minimizing cost impacts.” – Alex Malusky, VDC Engineer, McCarthy Building Companies Inc.

Many technology providers have been expanding their interest into the AEC industry. Samsung Business has seen first-hand the results of using their Gear VR goggles that are powered by Oculus, to streamline decision making with owners and contractors. Their full product line actually already is widespread throughout the industry. Samsung smartphones, ruggedized TAB Actives tablets and their broad family of digital displays are in use on many jobsites. The reality is that the technology adoption occurring throughout the AEC industry today has created significant challenges for contractors and other users while at the same time has got the attention of a huge number of technology providers. The one thing that everyone agrees on is that the AEC industry is no longer behind the curve. In fact, in numerous ways the AEC industry is leading the charge in many of these fields. Consider the 3D printed buildings being studied by the University of Southern California (USC). Mississippi State University College of Architecture, Art and Design just launched their Construction Training and Research Laboratory (CTRL) program to assure that students are not just educated in the technology available to them today, but also learn how to incorporate the use of drones, 3D laser scanning, 3D printing and many other developing technologies into the design and construction processes of the future. No doubt Mississippi State will be the first of many. The AEC industry must adopt these practices in order to address the ever increasing needs of technology demanding projects as well as the needs of building owners and developers who need to manage and maintain these buildings for decades to come. It also is a crucial part to attracting the brightest and most creative minds of the next generation to consider the AEC industry as an exciting and challenging field to enter in to. All things considered, there has never been a more exciting and demanding time to be part of this incredibly dynamic industry. CCR

On your mark ... 5 things to consider before starting your construction project By Chris Tilton

B

uilding a commercial project is much different from constructing a house. The process can be intimidating, and the initial decisions you make in the construction process often are the most important. The right choices will enable the project to run smoothly and efficiently from beginning to end, and help you avoid down time and increased expenses. Here are five things to consider before beginning any commercial building project:

148

COMMERCIAL CONSTRUCTION & RENOVATION â&#x20AC;&#x201D; JULY : AUGUST 2016


No. 1 – Stormwater Management Ordinance

Most local governments have regulations to control and minimize the adverse impacts of land development and to control post-construction stormwater runoff rates, volumes and pollutant loads on development and redevelopment sites. If your development process violates the Stormwater Management Ordinance, the local government can order you to stop work, withhold certificate of occupancy, revoke permits, and even impose civil and criminal penalties. Prior to the 1980s, stormwater management simply meant flood control and the pipes designed to convey stormwater runoff to aquatic resources. Little consideration was given to stormwater quality. While this approach worked well to reduce flooding, it did not address the negative impacts that land development can have on the health of the rivers and streams. During the 1980s, communities began to realize, in order to protect these resources from the negative impacts of the land development process, both stormwater quantity and quality needed to be addressed. As a result, in the 1990s, the National Pollutant Discharged Elimination System (NPDES) was enacted, and local communities began to revise and expand their local stormwater management programs, working toward prevention in lieu of mitigation.

No. 2 – Architectural, Structural & Civil Engineering

No. 4 – Site Conditions

This probably is the single most important consideration before starting a commercial project. There is a reason the sites being developed now are the last sites to be developed. As one large Pooler developer put it, “I don’t ever want to hear the words, ‘Pooler Gumbo’ again.” There are different mitigations for each type of foundation. For example, you must mitigate parking areas

Your general contractor should be a true partner in helping you navigate these initial decisions as well as throughout the design/build process.

Construction jobs require different types of engineers to be responsible for many facets of the project, from designing to planning and managing. The engineer’s role is even more critical on commercial construction projects, which are more complicated and require a more planned and detailed approach. The first thing to consider is what kind of professionals may be required for your specific project. Some municipalities, depending on the building type, will require an engineer either/or an architect. You also will need a structural engineer for the foundation, an MEP engineer for the mechanical, electrical and plumbing and a civil engineer for the site engineering. When it comes to determining the various professionals that may be required for your project, this is a good time to consult your general contractor. Put them to work for you, to help guide you through this process.

No. 3 – Permitting & Timing

budgets likely will change and you should be flexible up to a point, but you must be realistic in determining your absolute latest completion date and maximum budget. Another item to consider that could impact your timing is how the project may affect current business practices, customer relations, the local community and other businesses. Visit with city council members or speak at a civic organization about your project. Reach out to the local media. It might be helpful to hire a public relations firm to help guide you through that part of the process.

Consider the impact of your plans to construct and develop a realistic understanding of the timing of the permitting process. For example, you must have your plans completed before you can submit them to the local planning commission for approval. Three readings are typical for a development permit, at perhaps a rate of one reading per month. You also should anticipate several pre-construction meetings before you can begin construction. In addition, factor in timelines for other permits, including right-ofway, temporary power and water meter. Remember, schedules and

as well as the building pad. And don’t forget things like flood zones and fill dirt. The latter can cost more than the site itself. The assessment of site conditions will be instrumental in developing the construction schedule as well as bids. Differing site conditions can cause schedule delays, cost increases and dangerous working conditions. They also can invalidate design assumptions, putting project performance at risk. If you choose a general contractor in advance of bidding, they should be able to guide you through this and other complicated processes. Make sure it’s someone you trust and who communicates well with you.

No. 5 – Location, Location, Location

This is not just a real estate catch phrase. While a realtor can be a good resource for some information, like how much traffic may pass by your door, you will need to learn much more about the property as well as the applicable laws of governing jurisdictions. Is the site in an earthquake, hurricane or flood zone? What is its proximity to wetlands? Here is another good opportunity to turn to your general contractor for their expertise. If you have not yet purchased property for your project, ask them for their guidance is selecting a site that will be the best fit for your building needs, your customers’ needs and your bottom line. Your general contractor should be a true partner in helping you navigate these initial decisions as well as throughout the design/build process. If your construction team takes these five areas into consideration, it could wind up saving you a lot of time and money. CCR

Knock, knock... It's opportunity here W hen opportunity knocks, you should always listen. Well, that knock came my way this past June, when the opportunity to launch a new lacrosse high school and recreational program presented itself. I was humbled to be considered for the position, which is in neighboring South Hall County, just north of Lake Lanier in Georgia. They invited multiple lacrosse coach candidates to help develop their program – one they hope will be become a high powered lacrosse dynasty.

Now the fun begins. Just like breaking that first pad of dirt, my plan now must be put into action. Fall Ball is set to begin after Labor Day weekend. And so the to-do list begins: • Secure field space, which is not easy with football and soccer controlling all of the fields. •C  hoose an equipment vendor to outfit our team affordably, realizing, of course, that there will be a much larger order down the road. • Create a team logo. • Build a team web site, Twitter and Facebook page. • R ecruit local players (there are four high schools in Hall County) and conduct tryouts. • Decide on assistant coaches that share my winning vision. • Create a practice plan that will be effective for new players who have never played lacrosse. • J oin a Fall 2016 High School Boys lacrosse league to get our feet wet and take our lumps as we get ready for the Spring 2017 lax campaign.

Building a sports brand is just like building a retail, restaurant or hotel brand. It takes a plan, people, patience, a positive attitude and the understanding that you will make mistakes and learn from them. • Create a non-profit that can take payments. • Obtain liability insurance. • S ecure parent volunteers to help out with whatever we missed on the to-do list. • Reach out to local high schools to let them know we are on the map. The vetting process was on. They requested my lacrosse resume, my education history, a local and federal background check, and what I did for a living. The end game was the position of director of lacrosse operations and head coach. After meeting with the high school athletic director and the Hall County Parks & Recreation Department, they informed me that I was the chosen one. An opportunity like this does not come very often – the chance to build a brand from scratch, just like many of you do every day.

Building a sports brand is just like building a retail, restaurant or hotel brand. It takes a plan, people, patience, a positive attitude and the understanding that you will make mistakes and learn from them. But most importantly, there must be a need. They are hungry for lacrosse in South Hall County. I had 22 players sign up on registration day, with a bunch of football players set to join me in the spring. I even had eight girls eager to form a girls lax squad, which was totally unexpected. Now I need to find a girl’s lacrosse coach in a county that calls lacrosse sticks racquets. Am sure there will never be a dull moment. I love a good challenge. And I love being the underdog. It reminds me of the journey I took back in December 2001, the month I started my own publishing company. I am still standing proudly today, even though many predicted I would fail. The thing is – failing is not in my DNA. So, all I can say is, “Go South Hall Panthers!” To all, stay cool the rest of the summer. Hope you have much success and good health for the remainder of 2016.
