Who Doesn’t Like The Feeling of a Job Well Done? Johan Bohlmann and Alex Rogers AC•Tech Field Operations

S

pecifier, contractor, architect, installer, project estimator, material purchaser, product manufacturer, building owner. We all feel the satisfaction when a project comes together as planned ... and our reputations go up a notch. That’s why AC•Tech puts so much emphasis on actually, physically “being there” when it counts. It’s one thing to manufacture specialty coatings that have been engineered to perform. It’s quite another to invest in the technical expertise and field experience necessary to make these coatings actually meet the FIELD performance SPECIFIED. It’s one thing to provide a toll-free number to respond to problems and warranty claims after something goes wrong. It’s quite another to work with a specifier to design an appropriate system, to counsel a project manager in the most cost-effective application

protocol, and to train installers to overcome an unexpected concrete slab issue before it cascades into a catastrophic flooring failure. So, we may advertise that AC•Tech “specializes in preventing excessive moisture, alkalinity, and oil contamination from causing commercial flooring failures in renovation, remodeling, and tenant improvement projects.” And we may try to hype our industry awards for product and process innovation in moving moisture mitigation to Division 3 in ground-up, fast-track construction projects. But, our measure lies in our attitude. We believe that helping everyone to do it right the first time is what builds success, reputation, and that “atta boy” feeling when all is said and done. And who doesn’t like that feeling?

EDITOR’S NOTE

EDITOR’S NOTE

by Michael J. Pallerino

What does your playbook say?

T

What’s the secret? Plank says it’s about thinking big. Sometimes you win; sometimes you lose. And while he’ll admit that he doesn’t always have the answers, the key is giving everything you have. In a recent conversation with his executive team, Plank said, “I don’t have to be right. I just want to win.” It doesn’t have to be his idea. He just wants the best idea. And then his team will bring it to life. There are a lot of lessons to be learned from the entrepreneurs who put everything on the line to walk through the fire that too many others fear. Maybe that’s why Plank’s secret to succeeding in a market that seemed unwinnable is so clear. Maybe that’s why with a brand slogan that adamantly states, “We must protect this house,” Plank and company are an inspiration in the plight to win when the odds state otherwise. Plank is at it again. He recently purchased 100 acres in Baltimore to build a $5.5 billion development project consisting of 45 city blocks and more than two miles of riverfront property. The project will not only serve as the heart of his $27 billion empire, but also the first step in the revitalization of a city that has lost its way. I remember sitting with Kevin Plank in a trade show booth in Atlanta during the early years of his company. He spoke openly and honestly about his mission to make a name for his brand a sports apparel performance market that seemed stacked with vendors. Back then; he said all he needed was time and patience for his vision to play out. As you head in to the planning for your construction projects in 2017, set some time aside to think through all the fine points. What did you hear? What do you think? What are you going to do? In the scope of the plan, for the sake of your brand and your client, they are smart rules to follow. As Plank can attest, you’ll be glad you did.

here are just three edicts. That’s what Kevin Plank says he uses to run his company. “This is what I heard. This is what I think. This is what we’re going to do.” The founder and CEO of Under Armour asks all of his managers to follow his approach.

As you head in to the planning for your construction projects in 2017, set some time aside to think through all the fine points.

The strategy involves making sure your team’s voices are heard. Did I hear you? Did I understand your meaning? And then, there is clarity. Everyone must have a voice, and everyone deserves clarity, Plank says. These are the tenants of leadership and a culture that’s designed to increase performance, satisfaction and speed. Nearly 20 years after Plank started making T-shirts in his grandmother’s Georgetown basement, his Under Armour brand has leapfrogged every single one of his competitors – Nike included.

Coffee rules

Did you

know

Starbucks is on track to boost same-store sales 5 percent this year and expand its global store count by 8.4 percent, putting it on track to surpass McDonald’s as the most valuable restaurant chain in the world, according to Nomura. As the beverage business has fewer competitors than the quickservice industry, there’s room for Starbucks to eventually grow to 50,000 units worldwide.

McDonald’s is revamping its $4 billion McCafe concept in 2017 to better compete with Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts. The upgrade to the eight-year-old brand includes more seasonal drinks, a stronger push for its coffee rewards program, updated espresso machines and specials that emphasize McDonald’s lower prices compared with competitors.

They can’t buy one, but they sure can look. That’s the play at the Nordstorm in Troy, Mich., where Tesla Motors opened a 700-square-foot gallery showroom on the first floor. The electric carmaker, which cannot legally sell a car in Michigan, is showcasing a single white Model X SUV – the first Tesla gallery in the state. While the showroom near the women’s handbags and jewelry department is open for browsing, consumers can only look for now. Customers who want one of Tesla’s electric vehicles would have to order from Tesla’s website and have it delivered or pick it up at a retail store in Cleveland, Columbus, Ohio, Chicago or other cities where Teslas are sold. About 400 registered Teslas are already in Michigan.

The number, in millions, that current and planned hotel developments worldwide are expected to add to the pipeline across 11,547 properties, according to the latest “Global Construction Pipeline Trend Report” from Lodging Econometrics. The global pipeline has 5,417 hotels with 1,008,948 rooms currently under construction, both within 1 percent of last year's total.

A partner you can

trust How the Dental Care Alliance is opening the door for today’s dental professionals By Michael J. Pallerino

T

he plan was pretty straightforward: Create groundbreaking career opportunities for today’s dental professionals.

In that one-line mission statement, Dr. Steven Matzkin set out to advance – and change – the scope of dental service, without compromising patient care. The end result was the Dental Care Alliance (DCA), which today is one of the country’s largest and oldest dental support organizations. Established in 1991, DCA has more than 260 affiliated practices in 13 states, encompassing all facets of general dentistry and all recognized dental specialties. With more than 400 dental professionals and a support team of experts behind the scenes, DCA offers the industry’s most flexible and customizable career opportunities and practice-transition solutions. Today, members of the DCA community can focus on practice equity, achieving career objectives, maintaining clinical autonomy and finding insights to day-to-day management questions. Commercial Construction & Renovation sat down with Craig Murray, VP Real Estate Operations, to get his insights on how the Dental Care Alliance brand is growing and why it continues to be a viable option for today’s entrepreneurial dental professional.

A PARTNER YOU CAN TRUST Give us a snapshot of Dental Care Alliance brand?

Formed in 1991, Dental Care Alliance (DCA) is one of the country’s largest dental support organizations with more than 260 affiliated dental practices in 13 states. We offer dentists and dental professionals clinical autonomy, career satisfaction and growth opportunities by reducing day-to-day business management headaches and administrative hassles; allowing affiliated dentists to focus exclusively on providing the best clinical care to meet each of their individual patients’ needs.

What type of consumer are you targeting?

With our vast variety of affiliated practices and brands, our offices provide comprehensive dental care to all ages across all socio-economic categories.

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

We have just opened our first location with our new colors and design in Naples, Fla. No one likes going to the dentist, but if you can make the surroundings pleasant and more inviting, patients notice. We also build with the latest technology in mind as forethought on what's coming in the future.

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

We rarely design a location the same twice. We try to use some of the same structure, but depending on the space’s footprint, we make adjustments. Unlike traditional retail, we don’t just need four walls, a ceiling and a floor. The clinical areas are defined, and then everything else is designed around those areas and needs.

Take us through your construction and design strategy.

Our design strategy starts with maximizing the number of clinical operatories we can build. The layouts are ever changing based on needs of the individual locations. We have partnered with a national GC as well as A&E firm that helps us with the ever changing landscape.

A PARTNER YOU CAN TRUST Give us a rundown of how the locations are organized.

We put a lot of emphasis on developing an efficient flow for the practice team. The goal is to provide a layout that maximizes the space and allows for smooth, efficient patient care.

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

It's the volatility of certain areas of the country and having access to good subs. The labor force seems to be dwindling in markets and everyone is fighting for the same work force to build. It will be interesting over the next year or so.

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

We are just now working on developing national standards for our projects. I have

done this with a prior organization that helped with cash flow as well as revenue projection based on historical numbers. If the team can do one more project due to efficiencies as well better understanding the financial implications, we are moving in the right direction.

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

We are at an interesting cross roads. Many of the staples of the retail sector are reinventing themselves, while others like Dental Care Alliance are jumping with both feet into the retail environment. Dental is becoming one of the major players in the retail landscape due to the credit worthiness as well as the typical length of our leases.

Why did you pick the locations for your establishments?

within the neighborhood. There has been a fundamental shift on where you need to be located. We are now looking to be in destination locations that provide a level of convenience for our patients.

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

In 2016 we added 100 locations, mostly through mergers and affiliations, and some Denovos. In 2017, we are planning on 10 to 12 Denovos, five relocations and multiple renovations.

What trends are you seeing?

I am seeing less opportunity for prime retail space and a greater number of us fighting to have that space.

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

We serve two clients. One is the staff, for if we do not create an environment that's up to the industry standards, there's an opportunity we can lose good talent. For patients, we are in an industry where

cosmetics are everything. We employ the best clinical and support team members in the industry, but if patients are not satisfied with the look or feel of the practice, they can easily go down the street to a competitor. We, like more traditional retail brands, are needing to create an experience-driven visit and environment.

What is today's consumer looking for?

I feel they're looking for the relationship with the organization and other team members. If patients feel they experience at a practice does not meet their expectations, there are competitive dental practices on every corner for them to choose instead. We focus on providing quality clinical care and superior customer service.

The year ahead Retreat attendees look at ever-evolving commercial construction sector By Michael J. Pallerino

There were many surprises in 2016. And, to be fair, many more on the horizon, according to attendees of the 2016 Commercial Construction & Renovation Retreat. When it comes to what lies ahead, pick a topic, any topic. Manpower. Construction materials. Technology. The impact of a new administration.

With leaders from every side of the commercial construction market represented, Commercial Construction & Renovation’s annual Retreat featured a roundtable discussion where some of the industry’s most prevalent topics were laid out. Held in Daytona Beach, Fla., at The Hilton Daytona Beach Oceanfront Resort, the three-day conference featured a bevy of networking opportunities – from a tour of the Daytona International Speedway, several lunch and dinner parties, and the always anticipated one-on-one meetings. The event, held Sept. 29-Oct. 2, was sponsored by Commercial Construction & Renovation magazine. Following is the final installment of our twopart snapshot of the roundtable discussions.

THE YEAR AHEAD CCR: What kind of surprises you saw. Did you see anything that surprised you? Kevin Campbell, JLL: One of the challenges I faced in 2016 is and it looks like we are going to follow the same pattern getting through the permit process. Year after year, it is a hurdle to cross. When you talk about the economy, it seems that this process is part of the economy’s downturn, especially with staffing being reduced. In some towns, it’s part-time. It really can throw the project off kilter and off schedule. It’s very difficult to get around it. That has been just one of the challenges that is top-of-mind for any of the projects I’ve worked on in the last year. Blake Brosa, EMG: What comes to mind immediately this year is the shift we saw in our client’s mentality when justifying cost vs. speed-to-market. Since the recession in 2009, we’ve all felt the enhanced scrutiny over the many costs pertaining to the design, construction, and maintenance of real estate assets and facilities. However, this year we noticed an uptick in several clients’ appetite for prioritizing speed-to-market over costs. Initiatives

36

that may have previously taken 12 months to design, permit, and execute are now being given three months to complete, and are being executed at a premium since many local GCs and sub-trades are already tapped for capacity. I think we can all agree this will continue to be the norm rather than the exception for 2017, so the sooner you can establish contractor workloads and lock up resources, the better.

“We’ll be taking some time to focus on more green initiatives in our go forward spaces, innovative technology, expanding our marketing and branding.” – Fatima Hakim, Ashley Stewart

COMMERCIAL CONSTRUCTION & RENOVATION — JANUARY : FEBRUARY 2017

Michael Echeandia, NY & Company: One of the difficulties we had this year was show time. We got thrown projects because of unforeseen situations, so we had to get them done quickly. Getting quality people to partner up with you hard as well. That was one of the difficulties we had this year. We had a couple locations – we do some popup stores – where we had two weeks to get them initiated and running. So getting somebody on board with you, someone you trust you that everything’s going to be okay, is something we’re focusing on. We do a lot of different contractors; a lot of different vendors. A lot of vendors always want to get the deals up front, so I have to place that blanket order until

THE YEAR AHEAD everything’s set in sideways. They want to say you get 11 weeks or 16 weeks – things of that nature. So we have to really step back and take a look at what we really try to do. It’s about getting prepared. But once again, when we’re dealing with landlords, it can be challenging. They say, “You can’t do this until this day,” and then all of sudden they come back to you and say, “Start tomorrow.” It’s all timing for us, because we have a strategy for how we’re going to approach where we want to be. Darrel Chaney, Prime Retail Services: We are not seeing a lot of new builds out there. But we’re pleasantly surprised with the small cap projects that are going on all over the place. As we’ve heard, there are lots of opportunities out there – a lot of work, so that’s a good thing for all of us. Rick Connors, Primanti Brothers: I’ve had good luck with contractors here at the end of 2016. Seems like last year, we really struggled trying to get contractors to get us bids. But it was very easy this year. There are a lot of good contractors that have stepped up, so that tells me some of the new construction and build-outs probably are slowing down a little bit and some contractors are catching back up. One of the problems we’re having is that there’s an on-going battle for these sites. Everybody’s probably looking at that. There’s actually a bidding war out there for all of the new sites. It’s very hard to get the

38

sites that are financially favorable for you. I think that all came from the stop of construction years ago, and now we’re starting to see new construction start back up. And with the cost of building materials, trying to budget something a year in advance, and then not knowing exactly how the market is going to be, has been an awful hard thing to do. You have to have time to get your budgets and your financial obligations in place.

COMMERCIAL CONSTRUCTION & RENOVATION — JANUARY : FEBRUARY 2017

Gina Noda, Rebcor Construction: Over the last several years, many of the retailers are trying to rebrand or redesign their stores and moving to smaller footprints so they hire a huge design firm to come up with this great new design concept, they pay four, five hundred thousand dollars for that design, they build two locations and say, “We can’t afford to roll this out; it’s not feasible, it’s not cost effective,” then they are back to the drawing board, they look to hire a new architect and value engineer that design and the cycle begins all over again. This is one of the many things that always seems to surprise me, why don’t we learn from past mistakes? Why don’t we do it right the first time around? Why do we all not work together? Like pairing up the design architectural firms with the production architecture firms along with some construction teams from the very beginning of a new design concept, so they can all work together. The design firm is designing for the “Store of the Year Award” and they are up here. The sky is the limit, then the production architectural firm is down here and the construction company is over here. But put them all together to meet in the middle, they can assist with value engineering the design all the way through the process to keep it in reality, so that the finished product can be cost effective and feasible to be rolled out the first time around. Overseas, they work with shop fitting models, meaning they hire one person who brings the entire team together so everybody works together from the very beginning with a team approach. I truly believe that we need to start moving more towards that model here in the U.S. I would really like to see us all work together and communicate more. We need more integration all the way around – from the client side, your internal

THE YEAR AHEAD did the installation of a specific fixture or a different kind of paint they found that works better, etc., These meetings were extremely beneficial for everyone and always were very productive. They helped build strong relationships between all the vendors and bring everyone together as one team. We’re trying to do more of this design/build in-house, create more of a team approach and be more the full service company for our clients. I really think that’s the wave of the future. It works tremendously internationally. Scott Moseman, Graybar: I’ve noticed that retailers’ design, IT and construction departments are sometimes not on the same page. IT will have an idea of what they want, but it may be too

Graybar’s Moseman: It’s a fine balance. DKNY’s Nation: Those are the challenges. Those are the things that surprise me, because nobody’s going notice that corner but me, and you. A regular customer is not going to walk into the store and say, “Oh my, I can’t believe that corner.” Bret Hanks, Ameritech: As a facility improvement provider for the last 20 years, we don’t run into too many surprises. LED retrofits continue, but what we have noticed is the prevalence of multi-store rollouts across the country paired with the high demand to install thermostat sensors for energy monitoring and lighting timers- not only for the parking lots, but for interiors as

costly or time consuming for construction to execute – and that’s when I become a mediator and a matchmaker between the departments. I can speak to different technologies and solutions that will answer the needs of all three departments. So I think it pulls away from working together sometimes, when everybody is tasked to get things off their checklist. Not everyone is willing to slow down for the teamwork thing. I’ve found that when I was outside the industry, I leaned on vendors. And now, even in the industry, I find myself offering a crutch or holster to be a resource. DKNY’s Nation: A couple of things that I’ve picked up here are that each department has their own challenges of what must get done. For me, I can say, “Okay, that corner right there – you want it to look like this and it’s going to cost you this amount of money. I can get it for you less expensively, but it’s going look a little different. It’s going to look like this, which is slightly different.” And it’s understood at the moment, but time, distance and recall from conversation is not forgiving.

well. Energy monitoring for brick and mortar stores results in substantial cost savings; a tremendous value as we begin to see the prevalence of online shopping take root. L.J. Mohan, Polo Ralph Lauren: We’re facing a very difficult time because material prices have, in fact, gone down over a period of time. So, even trying to maintain the same price in terms of material and labor is becoming difficult for the industry. That was the surprise. Year after year, I’ve always seen a 2 or 3 percent increase in everything we do, more than labor cost and material prices. But today, and I think in the foreseeable future, I believe that with interest rates remaining so low, prices will have to go down for everybody to be competitive. Another thing is the unusual complexion of this year’s election. In other words, the companies today in the highest level are not really spending the capital expense as much as they normally had in an election year, because they weren’t sure which way the wind would blow. Therefore, that what is really happening is that normal projects that would normally have seen fruit – that would

They’re obviously leveraging their distribution to supplement the bookstore. But they’re very much focused on you and your experience at that bookstore.

Julia Versteegh, Storefloors: Technology still surprises me. It’s amazing how far we have come and how far we have to go. In the industry, we now have lots of automation – automated service, robots, etc. We have robots serving food and cars driving themselves. Drones delivering products. And yet we have ships that take 12 weeks to get from Europe to America. We have spaceships and space stations, so why are our ships still so slow? Twelve weeks is a long time for a store to wait. And it’s still so common. So I look forward to seeing what technology brings in the future.

“I see some good examples of understanding what everyone wants to experience something. They want to go somewhere and experience eating.”

Polo Ralph Lauren’s Mohan: The idea that technology will enhance the experience is what it’s all about. So the question simply is that whatever technology you use, it’s going to, in fact, imitate that experience for the higher levels. That’s the concept. The dependency, really, is the personal experience will be the force. Technology will end up being the cause, but certainly will enhance the total experience. It’s not either/or. Technology will be never replace the entire experience. That’s not possible. But I think the share – the dependency – will rebalance itself in such a way that you might not need all the service you have right now in terms of human interaction. It may be technology can supplement, or add, or eliminate it.

Rebcor Construction’s Noda: Yes, because for the younger generation, it’s the technology and the experience. That’s what they have to bring to the table. Look at Samsung 837 in the meatpacking district. It is all about the experience and the best and most innovative technology. You can surf or ride on a roller coaster with virtual reality or you can load your Instagram account and walk down Steve DeBeradino, Cosentino: I see an aisle of all of your photos all around some good examples of understanding you, above your head, below your feet, it what everyone wants to experience someis crazy. It’s all about the experience and thing. They want to go somewhere and enjoying it. experience eating. They want to experience something that’s attached to your brain. I The space is incredible.

They just want you to come cool, (figuratively and literally), you could go in the freezer and try and experience Perch. If you end up buying something, great. You probably will buy from them because you really enjoyed on their coats. With today’s generation it is all about the experithat experience. But they’re doing an experience.

THE YEAR AHEAD Graybar’s Moseman: I’ll build on the idea of customer experience: it’s also controlled by the materials we use in a facility. Take, for instance, a light. Today, a lightbulb is much more than wire covered by a glass bulb. An LED light is a piece of digital equipment. Its output and color temperature can be controlled via an app on your phone. You can change the lights’ color temperature with a swipe of your finger, which immediately changes the ambiance of your store. Customers come to a brick and mortar store for the experience. They want to try something on. They want customer service – but when they want something, they want it immediately. Give them the option to pay with their smartphone while they’re still in the fitting room. Let them pull up your inventory to see if the item they want is in stock. It’s all about marrying the customer experience – whether that’s with lighting or traditional customer service – with the digital access to which people have grown accustomed. Primanti Brothers’ Connors: I agree that the overall costs of raw materials and constructions costs are down. But when you look at the new digital items we’re putting into the stores, especially restaurants, it’s driving the cost up. Everything is

48

tied to your computer, so it has to be working properly. Your hot water heaters are tied to your computers, and the list goes on. This drives the cost up, but we have to do that. And now you’re bringing in the lighting program. I need a lighting program now to hue my lights and everything, but I’m looking at $25,000 for a package when I’m used to having $20,000 in lights. It’s just the whole set.

Polo Ralph Lauren’s Mohan: You’re right. So you have to add technology to the extent that you are trying to retrieve data. And it’s important that you have this data, because it gives you the knowledge to operate that facility in an efficient way. So when you really look at the initial capital cost, yes, costs go up. The net present value of that capital cost is going to be much higher than what it would be if you did not install that technology. Primanti Brothers’ Connors: And that’s fine. Polo Ralph Lauren’s Mohan: But in order to operate that facility the way it was designed, as per it’s design conditions over its life, you will spend a lot more in labor and all of the other things that are

THE YEAR AHEAD associated with it. So, you really have to look at and say, “What are my operational costs in relation to my cabinet costs?” And if you look at the operational costs, you will find that they will have added labor or added manpower to be able to get the same efficiency if you did not install those controls. So that is the issue. When this is analyzed, and when people make these decisions, they have to look at it in terms of is this is a keeper facility? Are we going to be in this real estate market or this domain for 20 years? 10 years?” You have to make the complete projection of both operational and capital costs. And then you have to weigh that full equation to see what, from a lifecycle cost standpoint, is the most beneficial for you? Fatima Hakim, Ashley Stewart: I just wanted to add to the comments regarding the brick-and-mortar experience. Ashley Stewart is a very socially engaged brand, so what we did in our stores was add more social elements to get the customers even

because it really taints down in that area, and as far as shipment, retail operations, architectural and corporate is concerned. Everybody had to get his two cents in. It was like we were talking about earlier – nobody was really on the same page, especially when it comes to a store that’s in a realty sensitive area like that. So I was surprise that we were able to accomplish it within the given time. CCR: Give us a snapshot of what you expect in 2017. Ashley Stewart’s Hakim: Our lab store will be open in 2017 so we’ll be keeping a close eye on the performance of that space, creating some specialized KPI tools to track some of the new elements. We’ll also be preparing to build on its successes and we are aggressively looking for markets where we can replicate the prototype as we prepare for our growth period. Additionally, we’ll be taking some time to focus on more green initiatives in our go forward spaces, innovative technology,

“One thing I have discovered in retail is that design, IT and construction departments are sometimes not aligned. Projects necessitate that they will eventually come together, and often a fullservice distributor like Graybar can help connect these stakeholders earlier in the process.” – Scott Moseman, Graybar

more engaged. Our customers love to be featured on Facebook, Snapchat and Instagram. We’ve added selfie stations in some locations as well as custom Snapchat filters. We encourage a lot of online activity that translates back into our brick-and-mortar business. We do a lot of model calls, sip and shops and events in our stores. We’ve seen the traffic increase because everyone wants to be a part of that experience. They want to be featured on our social media. We now have a social media lounge; you can take a picture, hashstag it and end up on our social media space. They like the opportunity to be famous in their own feed. That builds our brickand-mortar business with a social aspect. Dedrick Kirkem, John Varvatos Enterprises: We had to deal with our build-out. That was a kind of a surprise for me,

expanding our marketing and branding while building on our already dominate social media presence. This year will be an exciting time for Ashley Stewart. Cosentino’s DeBeradino: We’ve got a lot of new architectural design sales managers – 60 of them throughout North America. And the challenge for me is to get them up to speed in the corporate and hospitality world, and the applications we have. It will be fun. Demetria Peterson, Bridgestone Retail Operations: We’re looking at really expediting on our development. The 20/20 vision is that we want to have 3,000 stores by the year 2020, so we have a lot of work to do. We’re looking at the combination of build-to-suit, self-development and acquisitions.

THE YEAR AHEAD with our manufacturers to make sure our mutual customers are getting high-quality items that fit the end application – hospitals, schools, manufacturing plants, retail, commercial and the like. Everyone expects that the cost of LED technology will continue to get cheaper and cheaper, and that’s only true to a point. Look at smartphones today – the price has stabilized even though the product is in high demand. Manufacturers of LED lighting are already starting to reach that same point. Storefloors’ Versteegh: I would say that 2017 holds for us building partnerships that will help us to better serve our clients. It will be about how we can work together.

Brad Gaskins, The McIntosh Group: We are seeing in 2017 a similar year to 2016. There are a strong number of smaller rollout projects scheduled. These rollouts are defined by us as a similar scope of work project across a large number of stores with a specific, fast, timeline for full completion. In addition, during 2017, we see both smaller and larger remodels return due to an increase in capital spending in this area. Many 2015 and 2016 remodel test stores have proven to be successful.

“As a company, we have been going through a lot transition over the last two years or so. I think it’s finally coming together. I’m hopeful that 2017 is going to be a really busy year.”

Grace Daily, Shop Top 360: We’re going to be celebrating red carpet, black-tie style with our podcast series. We’re going to be interviewing a lot of folks from the industry and doing it in locations like New York, Chicago and Atlanta. Illumatch Sign’s O’Brien: We’re doing some strategic partnerships and trying to broaden our offerings. We’re going to try and partner with the people who didn’t primarily participate in the sign industry. We want to build partnerships and connections with them. Polo Ralph Lauren’s Mohan: Next year will be a year of radical change. We are working to get the best providers for the services we need. Who has the light capabilities that can provide the necessary services we need for our new designs, new prototypes, new stores, real-estate ventures, new lease agreements, etc.?

Tim Hill, The Beam Team: We are seeing very similar year in 2017 as we did in – Jacqueline Nation, DKNY 2016. There are a strong number of smaller projects across a number of stores of similar projects, and a lot of stores rollouts, and refreshes.

We’re seeing smaller remodels and of global warming due to green-house emissions, it only makes an awful lot of them next year. sense that we are starting to see local municipalities offer rebates as incentives, specifically in the Northeast, where costs are so high Misty Cameron, Firehouse Subs: Next year we plan to open at for energy.

THE YEAR AHEAD DKNY’s Nation: As a company, we have been going through a lot transition over the last two years or so. I think it’s finally coming together. I’m hopeful that 2017 is going to be a really busy year. Rebcor Construction’s Noda: I’m extremely excited to get back to the general contracting side of the industry, it’s been over five years. I miss all my subs and mall managers. I will be focusing on marketing/branding, creating a new website and new marketing materials, coming up with a strategic business development plan for growth with bringing in new clients, as well as, taking them into new markets. I’m doing what I love to do – taking a small business and helping them grow. Primanti Brothers’ Connors: We have 35 stores. Next year, we plan on opening eight to 10 more, with three or four remodels on current stores.

“We expect to spend more time responding to accessibility lawsuits in the first six months of 2017 than we did in all of 2016.” – Brad Gaskins, The McIntosh Group

Prime Retail Services’ Chaney: We’re projecting an increase in the remodels and refresh work – a lot of it. And also, ADA compliant work. NY & Company’s Echeandia: We’re doing about six new locations next year, as well as between 10 and 12 refreshes. That does not include the special projects we do – pop-up stores and the side-by-sides. Those are yet to be determined. EMG’s Brosa: We all wish we had a crystal ball, but we don’t, so we’ll continue to monitor the market place and listen to our customers. In 2017, I’m thinking we’ll continue seeing major investments in initiatives hyper-focused on reinventing and differentiating the customer experience. For bricks and mortar retailers, this will be a combination of in-store and e-commerce enhancements. For online-only retailers, I think we’ll see an influx of “e-tailers” seeking a physical presence. First, by way of pop-up shops to test proof-of-concepts, and then by flagship locations, and eventually nationwide expansion—a continued race to differentiate from competitors and capture market share, while seeking an optimal online and physical brand presence. JLL’s Campbell: It’s all about relationships, enhancing our existing client base, providing excellent customer service while attracting new clients. We want to continue to build growth in all of our services lines turning projects into programs. I think 2017 will be a year of new partnerships and inspiration. CCR

REVOLUTIONARY FAST INSTALLATION SYSTEM. nora® nTx cuts install time in half

F

aced with stretched budgets and tight construction schedules, building owners look to contractors to produce more work in less time.

For flooring contractors, this often means finding ways to streamline or even eliminate time-consuming subfloor preparation methods and costly moisture mitigation procedures. It also means working in ways that minimize inconveniences to those working in occupied buildings, especially in busy facilities that operate 24/7.

Fortunately, nora systems, Inc. offers a solution that saves time, reduces costs and minimizes disruptions where flooring is being installed in new construction or as part of a renovation project. nora® nTx is a preapplied, solvent-free adhesive backing that

minimizes prep work and eliminates drying protocols, saving valuable time and money. Engineered to reduce installation time by as much as 50 percent when compared to standard PVC sheet installation, linoleum

and rubber, the revolutionary fast installation system dramatically lowers the total cost of a construction project. With the ability to be installed over existing flooring in renovation projects, further time savings are realized. nora nTx is all about saving time. No commercial resilient flooring installs more quickly and effectively. That’s because the system eliminates the use of a wet adhesive. No more spreading adhesives (even with flash coving), replacing worn trowels and waiting for the adhesive to set up, or cure. Installed nora floors with nTx are ready for immediate use, or immediate welding, initial cleaning, and rolling loads. The installer walks out and you move in. nora nTx is also resistant to high moisture vapor emissions and extensive pH limits, which eliminates the need for moisture testing and remediation. As a result, nora nTx also eliminates the number one reason for resilient flooring failures — the improper use of wet adhesive application. nora nTx installations require fewer materials and put an end to long waits and wasted time. Contractors don’t have to worry about using the right notch trowel or the open time that comes with using wet adhesives. By eliminating these worries, nora nTx is helping them adhere to tight construction schedules. nora premium rubber flooring with nTx features the same performance benefits as other nora floor coverings, including durability, a simple maintenance regimen, improved acoustics, comfort underfoot, naturally bacteriostatic and fungistatic, stain and slip resistance, improved indoor air quality, GREENGUARD Gold Certified for low VOC emissions and an extended life cycle that spans several decades. To learn more about nora nTx, visit the nora website at www.nora.com/us/ntx.

Saving energy is accomplished in various ways and lighting typically has been a large energy use item in any commercial property, but perhaps even more so in hospitality. And, in a hotel property, it takes several lamps to illuminate a guest room properly and accommodate all the different tasks that both business and vacationing travelers require. Located near the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and in close proximity to premier shopping, dining and entertainment, the Green Tree Inn & Suites Phoenix Sky Harbor faces heavy competition from all the chains with more than 40 hotels in the area. To be competitive, all costs must be taken into consideration and industry best practices must be studied closely in making

UPGRADE 2.0 benefits of new technology LED lamps. EarthTronics high quality “EarthBulb” LEDs are known for being energy-efficient over their long life span. The EarthBulb LED benefits include instant full brightness when they are turned on – no flicker, no warm up time. And, the LED provide a more complete color spectrum than compact fluorescent lamps and provide very pleasing light color and clarity. These are all important considerations, when choosing a specific LED product for a lighting application, selection is based upon many factors. LED replacement lightbulbs now have become the size and shape of nearly every popular incandescent bulb used in a hotel application. This makes overcoming application and operational issues much easier. Guest satisfaction also remains paramount in the equation and, with the excellent light color and operating characteristics, these new LEDs are an easy choice to make.

LED light bulbs and fixtures quickly are becoming mainstream. As recently as three years ago the cost/benefit of utilizing LED lighting products was not as compelling as it needed to be for all industries to gain improved operational costs from. Early installations of LED technology were in hard to service areas such as street lighting, where the cost of installation could be offset with the promise of long service life and a reasonable return on investment. But, LEDs have turned an important corner with regard to the economics of cost and benefit. The Green Tree Inn & Suites is a good example of this. Guest room illumination can be costly. Travelers often enter the room, switch on the lights, and then perhaps leave for several hours. This exposes the hotel management to energy costs that they have had little control over in the past. LED lighting has achieved a nearly impossible scenario for hotel managers through vast improvements in the basic technology and, at the same time, providing these attributes at a much lower cost. Many hotel properties currently are using compact fluorescent technology. The LED with now even greater efficiency can offer nearly 40 percent energy savings over the old CFL and provide a longer service life. This is a true win-win for the hospitality industry. After his assessment, Bartelt recommended replacing 1,850 40 watt CFLs with 7 watt A-bulb LEDs in the guest rooms and replacing 50 of the 65 watt BR30 used in downlight applications with 9 watt BR30 LEDs from EarthTronics. The BR30 LED is rated to last 25,000 hours, easily 10 times longer than the CFLs they replaced. Just as important, the LEDs maintained the light levels and warm, comfortable hotel environment. “We recommended the EarthTronics LED products because of their proven high quality and efficiency over the long life of their product” Bartelt says. To pay for the LEDs, EE Pros even arranged for the Salt River Project rebate to pay for the lamps, which lowered the energy consumption on the local electricity grid. “By simply changing the light source to LEDs, we save more than 80 percent of our energy cost related to lighting," Petty says. "Plus, we reduce maintenance time since we won’t have to change the lighting for five years. This allows us to concentrate on our guests rather than worrying about changing light bulbs.” The move also aligns with the Green Tree brands goal to adopt environmentally friendly practices, thus truly being a win-win proposition.

is roots go back to Cincinnati, but he had always put a premium on the big picture. When Jeff Osterfeld opened “Jeffrey’s Delicatessen” in the Dayton Mall in Dayton, Ohio in 1983, he got a first-hand look at how a solid product, and superior customer service and sales could play on a national stage.

On a trip to Philadelphia, Osterfeld was drawn to the immense popularity of the cheesesteak sandwich. His travels prompted him to add a variation of the Philly cheesesteak to his menu. And the crowd roared. In 1985, Osterfeld rolled his quick service dining idea into downtown Cincinnati, where he opened the first Penn Station Restaurant. The original menu had four sandwiches, including the grilled cheesesteak – all prepared right in front of the customer. In 1988, he formulated a franchising concept, and began pushing the initiative across 15 states. Today, the founder and CEO is looking to continue his quest to deliver the Penn Station brand to deli aficionados everywhere. We sat down with Kirk Durchholz, VP Construction for Penn Station, to get his insights on where the fast-casual brand is heading.

Give us a snapshot of the Penn Station brand.

We are a sandwich franchise with more than 300 restaurants in 15 states, primarily in the Midwest. Our menu features 14 grilled subs, fresh-cut fries and fresh-squeezed lemonade. We were named the best sandwich brand in the "2015 Nation’s Restaurant News Consumer Picks" survey.

What type of consumer are you targeting?

We’re in the fast casual segment, which typically provides higher quality and limited table service, all with a $9 average ticket. Our customers like us because of the quality and uniqueness of the products we serve.

Talk about your growth strategy.

We primarily grow in a concentric circle from Cincinnati. The concentric circle gives us the three main things we must have to enter a new market: logistics, brand recognition, and our oversight and support. In 2017, we plan to open 15-20 new restaurants, primarily filling out markets in which we currently exist.

What characteristics stood out about the areas you are targeting?

We already have a presence in most of the markets we are targeting, and we believe we need to further expand that market presence. Because we were voted the best sandwich brand in America, we don’t feel like our food is regional. We know we can be national in scope. That said, from a brand recognition perspective, it’s important to build out existing markets before expanding to many new markets.

What do you look for in franchisees?

In addition to sufficient capital that coincides with the franchisee’s growth plan, we want franchisees who have an intimate understanding of P&L statements, have experience in hiring and firing, and overall small business experience. They also must be process compliant and follow our 105-page operations manual.

COOKING WITH GAS

COMMERCIAL KITCHENS

It took an interest in preserving and enhancing the former Amoco station, adapting the bold lines and the folded planes, and accentuating them with sustainable materials, color and architectural systems. Interest in this structure began long before its current owner, the EDENS Group, took possession. EDENS saw that the property held potential as a restaurant, and found a tenant in the budding restaurant group Nomad Pizza.

The project team began by evaluating the basic layout options with respect to possible kitchen location, service access, outdoor patio space, entry, and so forth, and then considering the effect of each proposed layout on the existing structure, and on the exterior. A secondary step was transforming the façade, which offered ample opportunity for creativity in developing good hospitality ambiance while also preserving the building’s modernist attributes. Opting for a palette of large glass panels, storefront systems and rolling doors, JZA+D was able to conform to the original lines of the building and even emulate the look of its garage and service bays. These flourishes not only reduced expense, they’re now a permanent and visually interesting reference to the building's original purpose, as well as a fun reminder of the vehicular origins of the Nomad Pizza business.

Adaptive reuse is an important element of the commercial renovation and architectural design story.

Amoco station before.

Adapt, preserve and serve

Nomad Pizza's owners, Stalin Bedon and Tom Grim, were no strangers to adapting older structures. They began by serving pizza out of a 1949 REO Speedwagon truck outfitted with a wood-burning oven imported from Italy. After successful openings of locations in Philadelphia, and then Hopewell, N.J., the Nomad team set their sights on Princeton. JZA+D’s primary role in adapting the building was to conceive a new overall design and update the core and shell: the facades and roof, laying out the interior plan, and the requisite MEP system upgrades.

112

In spite of this serendipity, the service bays and garage doors also presented the biggest hurdles to adapting the small building for hospitality uses, especially in the temperate climate zone of the northern Mid-Atlantic. For the best efficiency and comfort, the layout closed off the structure's three bays on the street-facing side, and integrated a facade of certified Western Red Cedar across and over portals replaced by storefront glazing. The project designers made sure to determine the height of the aluminum mullions, matching the rhythm between front and back so that the building looked even more as it did when it first opened in the 1930s. Closing off the bays at one end effectively reversed the front and back of the building: The entrance to the service station had faced the street, but now the restaurant entrance and dining patio face away from the street toward the neighboring shopping center.

On the side facing the shopping center, the garage doors remain. JZA+D proposed specifying specialized glass-and-aluminum overhead doors with energy-efficient and acoustic insulation features. The result is a transformable space: a small, cozy dining room in colder months, and a dining space that sprawls out onto the patio in summer, erasing the boundary between interior and exterior. To shelter the patio, a pergola-style awning system provides cover for up to 80 diners.

Experience, collaboration and a little luck

As the project team expected – in part because JZA+D had completed both new and adaptive-reuse projects in this area before – the project was complicated by a variety of required municipal approvals. Some were related to health

and safety, while others added prescriptive aesthetic requirements. Making sure that a conversion design will conform to fire codes often proves challenging. For example, the sub-codes for rehabilitation projects determined whether sprinklers would be required based on occupancy. Since the Nomad Pizza occupancy varies seasonally with additional dining area on the patio, code officials agreed that the patio did not need to have sprinklers installed. This decision not only spared our clients from having unsightly overhead piping, it also ruled out any need for installation of dedicated water supply lines, which would have been costly. Aesthetically, the prescriptive regulations were also manageable. Though the municipality requires approval for anything visible from outside, the solutions were simple enough. Working with the mechanical engineer, Kelter & Gilligo, JZA+D was able to minimize views of rooftop equipment, facilitating layout of the vent and stack runs inside. For the roof itself, the team specified white-colored EPDM membrane over tapered insulation on the existing wood-plank substrate – an easy decision since the roof itself is not visible from the ground.

specified an aluminum louvered screenwall to disguise the kitchen and bathroom exhaust components, including a makeup air unit. Another challenge JZA+D and EDENS Group faced was the requirement for a walk-in refrigerator unit, which could not be installed inside the structure's relatively small footprint. This meant that the large cold storage unit would stand out in front where the cooks and other staff would have easy access to it. The oversize unit would have been an eyesore if the team had not come up with a thoughtful resolution. In this case, a small bumped-out addition, screened in Western Red Cedar plank that echoes the rear facade cladding. Staff have to go outside to access the walk-in, because the only remedy for this small disadvantage would have required introducing a connecting door, which would have eliminated some counter seating and created a tricky flashing condition. JZA+D recommended the build-out solution with no access door to the walk-in, and the client agreed.

and the planet. One major tenet of designing sustainable buildings is to "use what you have," and adaptive reuse is one of the ideal ways to adhere to this principle. While preserving architecture that’s locally iconic or otherwise significant, adapting a structure reuses large amounts of salvageable, sustainable building material. This win-win process offers cost savings for the client as it reduces the carbon footprint and embodied energy of the building venture. It eliminates the need for new wood, metal, concrete, and other new materials but keeps the economic engine churning nonetheless, by creating a new use for an older building. Adaptive reuse is an important element of the commercial renovation and architectural design story. This project shows how other building teams can adapt unique strategies and techniques that are directly applicable to upcoming projects on newer structures. Across the United States, thousands of decommissioned and underused structures – including more than a few abandoned service stations – represent massive potential for creating value, saving on project costs, and preserving architecturally significant spaces. As architects, you should look forward to efforts of this kind, as well as to reading about the efforts of others to inspire and achieve the kind of creative problem-solving and client collaboration that went into making Nomad Pizza such a success. CCR

JZA+D’s primary role in adapting the building was to conceive a new overall design and update the core and shell.

World-class resort opts for world-class mosaic designs By Ron Treister

T

o many, Snowbird, Utah is recognized as a multifacility resort community. Known 150 years ago for its adjacent silver mines, the shining draw today is top-shelf winter powder skiing and snowboarding.

One major magnet, The Cliff Lodge and Spa, not only enjoys an outstanding Snowbird location near loads of Utah's finest ski-resorts, golf clubs and other attractions. It also boasts some of the most unique and progressive architectural and design treatments one could imagine. Featuring wall-to-wall windows with awe-inspiring mountain or canyon views, Cliff Lodge vistas are modern, spacious and sumptuously well equipped. The owners wanted some new indoor visuals. As a result, recently the resort had two very large mosaic murals installed.

Bennett prides her firm on researching, planning, designing, involving and orchestrating all projects to the last detail. Such was the case for one of the most innovative mosaic mural installations to be witnessed in years. This project took place in you guessed it – The Cliff Lodge and Spa. “We wanted in some way to bring the outdoors indoors,” Bennett says. “There are so many beautiful vistas surrounding The Cliff Lodge. In particular, there are exquisite Aspen trees indigenous to this part of the country, which look good year-round. So we made the collective decision to create an amazing Aspen tree ‘wow factor’ motif on two large walls, one being in the ballroom lobby, and the other in the ballroom mezzanine. These were to be very large murals, each 30 feet wide by 4 feet high…

Bennett says they knew a bit about Artaic, and how the firm offered a unique, space-age service of creating mosaic murals using computer-driven robots. "Artaic provided us with its mosaic depiction of an Aspen tree motif. We immediately liked it, but wanted to change the color of the trees from black-grey to more of a sepia tone, which was more relevant to the Snowbird landscape’s colors. Artaic had no trouble whatsoever accommodating our request. The people there were without question, very professional and a joy to work with.” Inventor and scientist, Artaic’s Dr. Ted Acworth says that when Artaic was asked to design a beautiful custom mosaic for the Cliff Lodge renovation, it learned the designer was looking for a custom mosaic that really reflected the beautiful natural environment of the Utah landscape.

After applying two coats, they started installing the Artaic mosaic sheets from the center of each mural. To do so, the thinset we chose was Bostik’s Glass-Mate™, using it one bag at a time. We were very happy how the material ‘stayed active’ in the bucket, which gave us time to adjust each sheet if need be. "By far, this is my favorite glass tile thin set,” Bennett says.

Bostik Glass-Mate™ is a premium, polymer-modified, thinset mortar that exhibits superior bond strength, durability, non-sag properties and workability. Its bright white color and high polymer content make it ideal for installations such as that at The Cliff Lodge and Spa. Katwyk went on to say that grouting was accomplished with Bostik’s Dimension® RapidCure™ Grout, which his company knew well. “We reached out to Bostik for advice, and Bostik came through. All their products are easy to use, their customer service is great!” "Our relationship with Bostik began when we started using Dimension® RapidCure™ Grout, their unique formulation which contains 60% recycled glass content, in our productions," Acworth says. "The product is easy to apply, highly durable and most of all, actually adds more luminosity to mosaic productions.

n uninterrupted flow of hot water is a modern necessity, especially when it comes to certain commercial applications. Without it, places like restaurants and hospitals would literally shut their doors. Jails, too, have a constant need for hot water – be it for cooking, dish washing, laundry or hygiene. Indian River County Jail in Vero Beach, Fla., realized this firsthand when a boiler and 300-gallon storage tank in its E-building complex began to malfunction. “The last thing you want is a riot, because the inmates do not have hot water in their showers,” warns Administrative Lieutenant Adam Bailey, who oversees facility maintenance at the jail. This prompted Bailey to replace the boiler with multiple tankless water heaters, providing continuous hot water on-demand without the hassle of storage. Furthermore, when combined in a multi-unit system, if one tankless unit malfunctions, the others automatically will work to meet demand until the problem can be fixed. By choosing tankless, the jail assured that hot water would always be delivered on demand. On the financial front, $50,000 in installation costs were saved, and the tankless system’s energy efficiency continues to provide savings in energy and operating costs.

E-Building

Bailey decided to install eight 199,900 BTU per hour, propane-fired NCC1991 tankless water heaters in E-building. The building also had an existing hot-water recirculation system to which the new water heaters were connected, further enhancing system performance. Jared Taylor of Southern Plumbing was contracted to do the installation in June 2013. Part of the job involved choosing a venting system for the water heaters. The building was constructed with prestressed concrete and had one exhaust hole serving the boiler. To avoid the complicated and costly process of drilling individual vents through the wall, it was decided to common-vent the eight water heaters through the existing exhaust aperture. “We ended up installing an exhaust fan from Tjernlund Products to prevent emissions backflow into the room,” Taylor says. “The installation itself went smoothly and was completed in less than two weeks. The only challenge presented itself long after the original installation, when the building reopened. At that point, the tankless system began to display an error code." There were some complications between the water heater controller and the exhaust fan that we had to straighten out. After discussing the issue and solutions with Noritz, the error was resolved. Although the exhaust fan added to the total installed cost, Bailey reports significant savings on the water heaters themselves over storage tank-type alternatives. “Having spent $63,397 on the eight tankless water heaters, we saved around $14,000 over tank water heaters,” reports Bailey. Indeed, the lower cost of tankless is what allowed the jail to install eight heaters. Bailey admits that had they installed tank-style heaters, they could have budgeted only for six.

C-Building

These savings made such an impression that when it came time in February 2015 to replace another boiler in C-building, which can house 120 inmates, Bailey had zero hesitation about choosing tankless. Financial savings in equipment and propane costs were once again the main incentive to go tankless for Bailey. The other factor was that the small size of the room did not easily allow for bulky commercial tank heaters. For example, the previous boiler had to be stripped to pieces prior for removal because the room had actually been constructed around it. The tankless units’ compact size eliminated this problem. The water heaters in C-building needed to serve the jail’s non-stop laundry operation, as well as 15 showers and 35 sinks. These extra hot-water needs required by the laundry led to the decision to install a 119-gallon storage tank, in addition to six NCC1991 water heaters. Unlike in E-building, the heaters in C-building did not require common venting. The installation, which spanned two days with a crew of three to four, had to be coordinated so as not to frustrate the jail’s laundry process; which continued to operate in its same space. Post-installation, Southern Plumbing remains involved by performing annual descaling and other maintenance check-ups on both tankless systems. Equipment-cost savings in C-building once again were significant, totaling roughly $36,000, and the ability to individually vent the system saved additional funds. As with the E-building installation, the ongoing savings in propane usage are substantial according to Bailey though he was unable to provide specifics (since the county pays the bills). Both applications have been meeting hot-water demands since the installations. For his part, Lieutenant Bailey is extremely pleased for choosing tankless water heaters. “They are very good products that eliminate the need for bulky storage tanks, simplify maintenance, and significantly reduce operating costs.” FC

W

ith one of the most recognizable quotes in history, “Dec. 7, 1941 – a date which will live in infamy,” Franklin D. Roosevelt brought the nation together in a time of despair and tragedy. The Pearl Harbor Memorial, comprised of the WWII Valor in the Pacific Monument; which includes the USS Arizona, USS Utah and USS Oklahoma memorials; Battleship Missouri Memorial; USS Bowfin Submarine Museum and Park; and the Pacific Aviation Museum, which recently celebrated its 75th anniversary by commemorating the 2,403 lives lost. Gearing up for the big event, the USS Arizona Memorial underwent a renovation. More specifically, the Memorial’s exterior was one of the primary aspects of the project, including a new railing system. After undergoing a bidding process, Feeney Inc., an Oakland, Calif.-based company that specializes in manufacturing high quality stainless steel and aluminum railing products, was selected to assist. “In the end, we chose Feeney’s DesignRail® railing for a variety of reasons, including its ability to provide a low visibility profile,” says Isobel Hertlein, an administrator for the Hawk Contracting Group, which was in charge of the project. “The railing doesn’t detract from the actual memorial – it offers a safety barrier for practicality.” Brad Adsit, LEED-AP, CSI-CDT, and Feeney’s design and engineering manager, recommended the company’s DesignRail® aluminum railing with a clear anodized finish to help withstand both the high level of salt water exposure as well as humidity. “Since the USS Arizona Memorial is right on the water, we needed to be sure the materials selected were durable enough for the conditions and the climate,” he says. For the railing’s infill, Feeney’s stainless steel CableRail was chosen for its durability in harsh conditions as well as its ability to provide open, unimpeded views through the railing.

FEDERAL CONSTRUCTION • REAFFIRMING GLORY

Since the DesignRail® railing frame is constructed from aluminum and the CableRail infill cables are stainless steel, it was important to keep the different metals from touching, so Feeney supplied isolation bushings to line the inside of the drilled post holes where the cables passed through. Adsit says this is an important “best practice” for projects located in areas with heavy salt water exposure. “Dissimilar metals combined with salt water can cause electrolysis, which in turn, can create a battery-acid like secretion that can stain and etch the aluminum posts,” he said. Feeney also provided high-density neoprene isolation pads to protect the aluminum post base plates from any corrosion that might be experienced due to salt water exposure between the concrete deck surface and the base plate.

In addition, the railing system had to be compliant with the American Disabilities Act (ADA) as well as endure high volumes of traffic. “It’s very durable and requires minimal maintenance, making it perfect for the extensive daily wear and tear,” Adsit explained. As visitors arrive at the USS Arizona site by boat, they disembark onto the new dock and walk across the new access ramp and bridge to the Memorial and viewing area. The railing funnels visitors towards the bridge and also prevents them from being in close proximity to the edge of the dock.

“For safety reasons, an upgraded railing system was a musthave,” Hertlein says. “The original design of the renovated railing system would not have been able to stop small children or adults from crawling under the access bridge into the non-public area of the Memorial. However, we recommended a more secure railing design to the National Park Service for added safety measures.” Another interesting detail on the USS Arizona renovation project is that Feeney worked with a supplier of specialty sliding gate hardware and aluminum extrusions to create a custom horizontal sliding gate. Hertlein says the gate was purposely designed to allow authorized personnel to access the back side of the dock, underside of the bridge and ramp area as well as a small Davit lift for general maintenance purposes. An additional, notable element is on the post located immediately adjacent to the “building” entrance. The piece was custom fabricated to match the slope of the exterior wall. “Due to safety concerns, this particular section of the railing system needed to bridge the gap between the walkway and the memorial,” Adsit says. When manufacturing the piece, we had to pay special attention to detail.” The bottom of the post needed to be cut at the necessary angle and attached to the base plate so it would run parallel to the memorial wall. Feeney also had to make sure the adjacent post was longer because it sits on a lower portion of concrete. Finally, the tops of the posts, the holes for the cables and top rail all had to align once the posts were set in place. The project wasn’t without its challenges. The Memorial was closed for the 14-day renovation period, so coordination and execution was very tight. “All crew members and building materials had to be shipped from the mainland by barge,” Hertlein says. “We also encountered last-minute changes in the overall design, as required by the National Park Service, but in the end we were able to complete the project and reopen the site on time.” The USS Arizona Memorial overlooks the sunken ship, and the museum serves as a reminder of a pivotal moment in U.S. history – one that will not to be forgotten.

How architects choose flooring for value, purpose and design

A

choose flooring materials. Choosing the cheapest material may save you money in the short-term, but could catch up to you with high maintenance costs. Value, not price, should guide your flooring decisions. Life cycle costing can show you the long-term costs associated with maintaining different flooring materials, which you can then compare to the upfront price of materials and installation. Knowing the costs and benefits of different solutions will allow you to reduce the costs of flooring installation. Keeping on top of trends in flooring is the key to being able to understand the costs and benefits of different flooring options. It might be good, for instance, to know that recently there has been a strong movement away from the 12x12 plank, with many now opting for hexagonal, rectangular and plank-shaped tiles of differing dimensions. Another trending option is digital graphic application, which allows you to make relatively cheap materials – think LVT, porcelain or laminate – look like their pricier counterparts – think stone, marble

rchitects plan for purpose, long-term value and, of course, aesthetics. And, when it comes to flooring, there have never been more solutions to meet these ends available than there are today. The vast range of possibilities can be exciting, but sifting through them can be daunting. From LVT to carpet tile to wood-imitation ceramic tiles, choices abound. In order to deliver the best value to your client, it helps to stay on top of common trends in commercial flooring. When completed, a building should serve its purpose while fulfilling the client’s aesthetic desires. Finding the best flooring solution comes down three areas: value, sustainability and design.

Why long-term value should guide your flooring decisions

As an architect, budget probably remains top-of-mind as you draw your plans. But it’s wise to keep long-term value in mind as you

or wood grain. The versatility and affordability of these design trends allows you to cost-effectively communicate your client’s vision. For example, a client might think they want hardwood, but due to the high costs associated with material, installation and maintenance, you might be able to cut both short and long-term costs by suggesting LVT designed to look like wood. Your client – and their budget – will be happy, and you’ll have been the one to reconcile the two.

Sustainability: Why Green Matters

Sustainability and energy-efficiency savings have become standard perks customers look for when completing a project. Beyond the obvious benefits for the environment, integrating energy-efficient materials into your plans can provide sustainability return on investment (SROI) to your client. For nearly the past decade, U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) LEED certification requirements have set the standard for green, energy-efficient and sustainable materials. The USGBC’s LEED guidelines shouldn’t be ignored when choosing a flooring solution that works for you and your client – energy-efficiency not only satisfies industry standards, it can also save your client money and improve the overall quality of the facility. Another way to go green with your plans is to choose reused materials such as reclaimed wood, bio-based tile or other recycled flooring options.

Designing for form and function

As an architect, your job is to transform a client’s vision into a physical reality. To architects, design isn’t an afterthought – it’s part of

the process. Balancing aesthetics and purpose, you’ll want to deliver plans that exceed your client’s expectations. From aesthetic elements such as color and pattern, to practical elements that aid in wayfinding, good flooring design welcomes and directs. You might, for instance, use brightly colored terrazzo to communicate quality in an upscale building. Both form and function matter, however, so you can’t pick a material purely for aesthetics. The patterns of the flooring can help visitors to find their way, and durable materials allow it to withstand heavy use, perhaps even the constant rolling of carts or wheelchairs. It’s accessible, sustainable and low maintenance. Of course, terrazzo won’t work for every project. Evidence-based design (EBD) will help you choose the right flooring solution for your particular project. This approach draws on industry best practices, allowing your flooring solution to work for you. Using EBD, you can design a building that maximizes noise absorbance and minimizes fall risk, or whatever other benefits you might need to incorporate. Within the healthcare industry, The Center for Health Design has published a peer-reviewed guide about how EBD can help healthcare facilities improve patient outcomes, for instance. Utilizing EBD can help you build a case to your client about how your design plans will serve them in dollars-and-cents ROI and beyond. Keeping up with trends in the flooring industry is key to being able to make the best decisions for value, sustainability and design. Form and function matter, but it’s equally important to your client that the project remains within budget. Having the knowledge to guide your client toward the right contract flooring solution for their particular needs is invaluable. CCR

Modeling smart cities By Christine Easterfield

The art of making Building Information Models (BIM) quick and easy

S

oftware is a key element in the architecture and construction world – as it is necessary to create and construct in today’s connected world. From design drawings to promotional images, via building construction, software is tracking the stages and presenting the results to improve productivity and ensure on-time delivery across the board.

The data to support all of this has to come from somewhere and has to be managed in a coherent way. The Building Information Model is perhaps the obvious place.

Gaining the benefits of BIM

With a new building on a pristine site, the benefit of BIM and the value of capturing data in digital tools is realized easily. The appeal of applying these same techniques to projects involving existing buildings and infrastructure is growing, but with the singular drawback of the cost of capturing, the digital model of a building or site that exists only on paper. With a new, greenfield development, the model is developed in parallel to the design and construction phases, becoming an integral part of the design and decision making processes as the project is

realized. With brownfield developments, involving pre-existing structures, the challenge becomes capturing sufficient data to retrofit a digital model to the site. The complexity involved increases when you factor in not just the existing buildings and structures on site, but the buried assets of the utility and telecom infrastructure serving them. It is easy to see how 3D scanning and point cloud capture techniques can be implemented to capture above ground assets and buildings. High resolution scanners can capture data at a range of scales from inside and outside existing structures, placing the scanned "image" into real-world 3D space. For example, an impressive multi-platform scanner can be flown on a UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) or walked around a site in a backpack. Scanned images are automatically resolved into vector data for editing and incorporation into new models and drawings, from where a host of facilities can support design decisions.

Visualizing the result

Understanding how a new development will fit into the existing landscape is an increasingly important part of both winning client approval and gaining appropriate planning permissions.

MODELING SMART CITIES

Software is tracking the stages and presenting the results to improve productivity and ensure on-time delivery across the board.

Being able to show the context of a new structure as it affects or impacts the surrounding buildings long before ground is broken, can win acceptance for a development and ensure investment is protected. For cities like London, the development of citywide, 3D models of existing and planned buildings supports the ability to place a new development into the context of the existing neighborhood. Once in place, such a model can show exactly how a development fits with others: where light and shade are affected, how protected views can be assured, and what verified views can be shared with clients to show what future users will have to look at. Buildings still in the planning phase can be brought into the view to show how the city will (might) look post-construction.

Hidden utilities

So much for what we can see, but what about the hidden assets? If the underground infrastructure of a busy city is not adequately understood, it can have a major impact on the viability of a site and on construction schedules. Without careful and accurate verification of utility records, costs can mount. Utilities have a responsibility to maintain records of their buried assets and to make the records available to legitimately interested parties. But each utility has its own records and combining these is the first headache to overcome.

The data management, display and rendering tools that support BIM need to be able to combine this data, supporting better planning and cost savings right from the early design stage.

But when it comes to the decision about where to dig – where to actually break concrete and how far down to go – relying solely on the single line representation of a utility route on paper or electronic device may not be enough. A breach in a mains water line is expensive to repair and a misplaced spade through a high voltage cable is just plain dangerous.

Seeing underground

Technologies to "see" what's going on below the pavement and roadways are not new, but the complexity they have to deal with is increasing by the day. Electromagnetic locators, cable avoidance tools and signal generators have been around for many years providing a typically hand-held tool to check the position of cables or pipelines. Techniques using ground penetrating radar (GPR) provide a faster way to gather the necessary data and mounting a GPR scanner on a trailer means a steady driving pace is all that’s needed to get a view of the services in place, saving the expense of road closures. GPR results still require a certain level of interpretation and experienced surveyors will balance the radar results against other evidence before confirming the position of an underground feature. Does the radar line up with the utility drawings? Is the co-incidence of drawing and radar result within an acceptable range? Data then can be loaded directly into building information models and compared with the plans for new work, where understanding the location of buried assets can support design decisions that avoid costly re-routing of utility services.

It’s all about the data

And for me that is the key takeaway – it is all about the data. Increasingly sophisticated discovery tools are pushing out more and more data to produce a digital picture of assets above and below ground. The data management, display and rendering tools that support BIM need to be able to combine this data, supporting better planning and cost savings right from the early design stage. CCR
