ASTM F3010-13 Two-Component Resin Based Membrane-Forming Moisture Mitigation System AC•TECH focuses on a very narrow (but tricky!) part of the building construction process. We make concrete slabs ready to receive adhesives, protective coatings, roofing assemblies and cementitious toppings when there is a problem with product tolerances to alkalinity, elevated moisture vapor levels, soaked-in oil and chemical residues, or threats of pin holing. We're that FIRST Product Layer in a performance specification for a roof, floor, or protective coating system that meets ASTM and AC/ Standards. That's it. That's what we do. And we try to do it well.

We Stick to Concrete ... So You Can Stick to Us ... And Perform Long-Term.

The Whale D New Pittsburgh diner is ode to Moby Dick

iners in Pittsburgh are looking at a new farm-to-table surf and turf option with the opening of The Whale — a Moby Dickthemed restaurant that is a nod to Herman Melville’s 1851 classic. The restaurant, located in what used to be the Salvation Army’s gymnasium, a 1926 addition to the 1924 building, will be attached to the Distrikt Hotel, a boutique hotel. In addition to bar inside the restaurant, another one located in the hotel will be called “Evangeline,” a reference to a Salvation Army women’s program. As an ode to its namesake, meat and produce will be sourced from local farms and seafood will be sustainably sourced. And, as part of the look and feel, captains chairs will line the high-gloss maritime-inspired red mahogany wood bar, which is reminiscent of a vintage vessel. The decor is not without a modern touch, as phone charging outlets will line the bar.

CORRECTION: In the May/June issue of Commercial Construction & Renovation, the General Contracting survey section had shown the incorrect company logo for Venator Contracting Group, LLC. We apologize for the mistake.

2017 set to bring modest growth for U.S. hotel industry

T

he outlook for the U.S. hospitality industry is looking bright as consumer confidence and an economic recovery fuel travel, according to Nasdaq research. Though the gap is narrowing, demand for hotel rooms looks to outpace supply in the United States again this year. Improving economic indicators is a boon for the hotel industry as it has perked up leisure and business travel demand. U.S. supply-demand has been favorable since 2010, with growth in demand outpacing supply growth. Recently, the gap between demand growth and supply growth has narrowed considerably and occupancy growth has slowed, higher average daily rates (ADRs) are expected to keep driving revenue per available room (RevPAR). While favorable prior-year comparisons contributed to strong demand growth in first-quarter 2017, Nasdaq says the pace cannot be sustained through the rest of 2017, with demand expected to moderate. Nevertheless, in spite of the large pipeline of hotels, both CBRE Hotels’ Americas Research and PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) are projecting demand (2.1 percent rise) to outpace supply (increase of 2 percent) once again in 2017, given the positive economic outlook for the remainder of the year, thereby resulting in the eighth successive year of occupancy growth for the U.S. lodging industry.

The overall four-quarter average construction level rate for the largest U.S. markets ended the second quarter at 72 percent, well above the historical average of 66 percent, according to CoStar Portfolio Strategy data. The report also showed that more than one-third of the 54 largest U.S. metros saw hotel occupancies contract from year-ago levels. Pittsburgh and Houston, which saw hefty levels of new supply even as their economies continued to soften, logged the steepest declines.

Meet me on Hennesy Street I Famed TV set hosts LA CCRP crew

n the most Hollywood of styles, the June Commercial Construction & Renovation People (CCRP) mixer played out on the storied Warner Bros. backlot Hennesy Street. The street was a pivotal character in many films and television shows, including “Annie,” “Road to Perdition” and “Minority Report.” To change things up at this year’s event, which was hosted by the Warner Bros. Design Studio, the street was dressed like an open-air market with pop-up tents each offering a different food or fun experience. Guests enjoyed a menu prepared by our own Master Chefs Production Catering that included exhibition paella, a selection of seasonal salads and a charcuterie table. Other attractions were California craft beers, a palm reader, custom made for WB Design Studio swag and a pastry stand that included a variety of desserts and Warner Bros logo popsicles. Tour carts shuttled attendees to Hennesy Street for the event, and then lined up to escort guests for a visit to our Mill to showcase our new Design Studio showroom, client Collab workspace and shops. To learn more about the Warner Bros. Design Studio, visit www.warnerbrosdesignstudio.com.

Video for Gauged Thin Porcelain Tile Panel Installations Showcases Advantages of Bosti-Set™

B

ostik, Inc., a world leader in specialty adhesives and installation systems for building construction, has produced a new video, which demonstrates the superior characteristics of its revolutionary new product, Bosti-Set™. Scott Banda, Bostik’s Director of Marketing and Business Development stated, “Bosti-SetT™ is a premium adhesive and sound reduction membrane… created specifically for gauged thin porcelain tile panel installations. There are so many positives about this new product, we produced our new video to highlight them.” According to Bostik’s Eric Kurtz, Market Manager, Hardwood, Resilient & Surface Preparation Systems, “With Bosti-Set™, we’ve developed a product that immediately grabbed porcelain tile panels in a single coat, did not allow any sag, yet made it possible for these panels to be repositionable for at least 30 minutes. Technologies used were environmentally friendly and contributed toward LEED® points. Above all, we created something that reduced project timelines.” Chad Bulen, Bostik’s Technical Services Manager added that with Bosti-Set™, “Projects calling for gauged thin porcelain tile panels now can be installed in roughly half the time with a smaller crew. Why? A single layer of adhesive is troweled only onto the back of the panel, cutting the square footage necessary to trowel in half. Additionally, crewmembers dedicated to basics such as mixing, running mortar back-and-forth and similar functions, can be redirected to work on more skilled installation procedures.” Bosti-Set™ is lighter in weight with much greater coverage than typical mortars. It contains zero VOC’s as well as 2% recycled material. Bostik’s patent-pending

COMMERCIAL CONSTRUCTION & RENOVATION — JULY : AUGUST 2017

Thickness ControlTM Spacer Technology built into Bosti-Set™ ensures proper membrane thickness is maintained between tile panels and the substrate. Recycled rubber crumb particles mixed into the adhesive create optimal membrane sound reduction performance. “Today, gauged thin porcelain tile panels have become extremely popular for numerous reasons,” concluded Banda. “In particular, because they solve so many installation problems. This newer category of high-technology tile clearly needed the most state-of-the-art installation material. That’s why we created Bosti-Set™. The benefits offered are professionally showcased in our new video.” The new Bostik Bosti-Set™ video and all other product information may be instantly seen by clicking on: www.bostik.com/us/bosti-set/

On a grand scale MGM Resorts’ ‘innovation and differentiation’ approach to hospitality excellence By Michael J. Pallerino

est-in-class hotels and casinos. Stateof-the-art, innovative

meeting rooms and conference spaces. Amazing live and theatrical entertainment experiences. To say that MGM Resorts International has it all may be the biggest of all hospitality understatements. Pick a venue – such as Bellagio, ARIA, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay or The Mirage – and guests are treated to the best-ofthe-best in hospitality experiences. Paced by more than 77,000 employees, the MGM Resorts’ portfolio includes 27 unique hotel offerings, which have roots dating back to the 1960s, when one-time Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer movie studio owner Kirk Kerkorian built the International Hotel in 1962. Four years later, he built the original MGM Grand Hotel. Over the years, and after a series of acquisitions and name changes, the company was renamed MGM Resorts International. Today, the once casino-driven, Las Vegas-anchored operation has become an internationally recognized entertainment brand. Commercial Construction & Renovation sat down with Joyen M. Vakil, A.I.A., Senior VP of Design & Development at MGM Resorts International, to see what lies ahead for the iconic brand.

Give us a snapshot of the MGM Resorts brand?

MGM Resorts International is a global entertainment company with national and international locations featuring best-inclass hotels and casinos, state-of-the art meetings and conference spaces, incredible live and theatrical entertainment experiences, and an extensive array of restaurant, nightlife and retail offerings.

ON A GRAND SCALE

MGM Resorts creates immersive, iconic experiences through its suite of Las Vegas-inspired brands. The MGM Resorts portfolio encompasses 27 unique hotel offerings including some of the most recognizable resort brands in the industry. The company is expanding throughout the U.S. and around the world, developing MGM Springfield in Massachusetts and MGM COTAI in Macau, and debuting the first international Bellagio-branded hotel in Shanghai.

What type of consumer are you targeting?

With such a diverse collection of distinctive brands, we appeal to a wide range of demographic and psychographic groups. Because of our breadth and depth of quality offerings, our guests are able to customize their entertainment experience based on their interests and budget.

32

It’s also imperative the designer clearly understands what will make the project economically viable and successful. Without that understanding, the project may fail miserably.

COMMERCIAL CONSTRUCTION & RENOVATION — JULY : AUGUST 2017

How does the design cater to what today’s consumers’ want?

Besides serving a functional need, environments evoke emotions. An architect or designer’s responsibility is to understand what emotions are appropriate for a certain space. People’s expectations are shaped through their experiences and exposure to environments. In different settings, consumers have different expectations for similar type of spaces. For example, a restaurant is primarily designed for dining. Yet some guests may expect the space to morph, based on the time of day and the purpose for which it is used. A designer also must understand the emotions that they are expecting to evoke through the built environment.

Walk us through how and why it is designed the way it is? At the onset of any design project, it’s imperative that the designer spends enough

ON A GRAND SCALE effort on programming. Not every client can clearly articulate how a project should be designed. It is a designer’s responsibility (or someone else who can aid the process) to develop a good program. Every program has numerous “quantitative and qualitative” criteria that need to be met. “Quantitative Criteria” include things such as number of occupants, required square footage, number of tables and chairs, the budget, etc. “Qualitative Criteria” include things such as what is the space going to be used for? How will the space be used? It’s also imperative the designer clearly understands what will make the project economically viable and successful. Without that understanding, the project may fail miserably. Good designs are often measured by their aesthetic beauty – which is subjective. However, a good design responds to the most amount of programming criteria and engages as many of the senses of the end user.

Take us through your construction and design strategy.

Every project is carefully aligned with the strategic business plan. Often, these fall into three major categories. First, new build projects, usually of substantial size and scale, often warrant a dedicated team with corporate oversight and coordination. The second is Cap-Ex Projects, which may be initiated for regular upkeep and maintenance or to keep current with the market, i.e., room remodels, hospitality space remodels. Third, Growth Projects, which are based on obtaining a certain ROI to remain competitive in the market. These projects may be classified in one of several categories, such as hospitality, gaming, food and beverage, retail and entertainment. Based on the type of project, we select design resources, which may be our inhouse team, outside consultants or, in some cases, a combination. Our portfolio is comprised of over 55 million square feet, 47,000 hotel rooms and suites, plus hundreds of F&B outlets, retail outlets, spas, theaters, arenas and more. There are not many 3,000 to 5,000-room hotels in the world, nor many designers who have experience working on projects of this

ON A GRAND SCALE scale. This presents challenges and requires a specific skill set that our in-house teams have been able to curate. Consultants often bring in a fresh perspective and a unique outlook that helps us create a variety of offerings for our guests. I often find myself playing the role of a conductor or a master architect to maintain the integrity of the strategic initiatives of the master plan and to ensure that all projects have a continuity and flow. Some projects may appear much different than the one adjacent to it, particularly with retail and food and beverage because they are intended to express their own identity. This is not much different from a destination venue such as Galleria de Victor Emmanual II in Milan. Under our current leadership, we have chosen to “Self-G.C.” our projects. In addition to cost benefits, this affords us the ability to expedite delivery of projects.

What’s the biggest issue related to the design and construction side of the business today?

The biggest issue today related to design and construction is achieving balance with client needs and market needs in a cost-effective manner. Then deliver a project that our guests will enjoy and the business will be profitable. Probably similar to the issues faced by most industries. However, here we have to create something tangible from someone’s description of what the project should be.

Talk about sustainability. What are you doing?

MGM Resorts has a Sustainability department responsible for all aspects of sustainable operations of our properties including building systems, recycling, food waste management and alternative energy sources. They also establish standards for new projects such as the type of building systems to be specified, the type of light fixtures to be used and requirements for low VOC paints. Every project must comply with the minimum sustainability standards and is evaluated for additional compliance criteria such as LEED.

ON A GRAND SCALE What do you see as some of your biggest opportunities moving ahead?

Besides serving a functional need, environments evoke emotions. An architect’s or designer’s responsibility is to understand what emotions are appropriate for a certain space.

“Innovation and Differentiation” are our two biggest opportunities. Today’s world has gotten smaller because of technological advances. Our guests are better informed and more aware of what’s available in the world. We pride ourselves on providing great experiences to our guests, and we do that in a variety of ways. We strive to offer our guests environments that are unique and entertaining. We support them with our exceptional service and value. We focus on holistic experiences. The most important part for us is to stay well connected with our customer’s expectations and exceed them every time they visit any of our resorts. Technology is vital to enhancing our guest experience pre, during and post trip. It also improves employee efficiency, if optimally utilized. That’s why we work with our experts and partners to strategically develop our external and internal tech programs.

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

Absolutely. We are an entertainment company and we believe in the importance of it in

every aspect of our lives and everything we do is centered around that main theme. No one does entertainment like MGM Resorts International.

What is your growth plan?

As a company, we’re constantly seeking and evaluating opportunities, both domestically and internationally. We opened MGM National Harbor in Maryland in December 2016 and are in the process of developing MGM Springfield in Massachusetts. Internationally, we are developing MGM COTAI, Bellagio Shanghai, and more.

What trends are you seeing?

Several evolve around technology and personal devices, which have become integral parts of our day-to-day lives. We see opportunities in creating environments that can integrate technology to enhance the experience without losing personal service. CCR

One-on-one with... Joyen M. Vakil, A.I.A. Sr. Vice President MGM Resorts Design & Development What’s the most rewarding part of your job? Being able to work on some of the most exciting projects around the world with the best team in the industry. I have the good fortune to work at a great company that recognizes and appreciates what we do, and I have the best team, who give their heart and soul creating wonderful, inviting environments for our guests.

What was the best advice you ever received? Growing up, my brother would often say, “Convince or get convinced.” That has stuck with me. I find that to be very useful while collaborating.

What’s the best thing a client ever said to you? “Your suggestion to relocate the sign increased our business by 70 percent in three months. Probably the best investment in our company’s history.”

Name the three strongest traits any leader should have and why.

Listen – Listening to diverse viewpoints brings new ideas to the table. It makes people feel appreciated, included and important. Empower – It allows the organization to be efficient and nimble. Build Consensus, which is important to ensure the whole organization is working toward one common goal and vision.

What is the true key to success for any manager?

To be a subservient leader – it’s something I recently learned about at one of our company training sessions and I couldn’t agree more.

How do you like to spend your down time?

With my family traveling to various places around the world with rich history and culture. Additionally, I particularly enjoy watching my son play “Quiz Bowl Tournaments.”

The Anatomy of a Perfect Landing Page Nobody wants a landing page with a high exit rate. And if you’ve put a lot of time into making your web page as cool as your craft beer, well, that’s not good. Here’s the thing – there’s more to a high-converting landing page than just its looks. Relying on your page’s aesthetics alone isn’t going to cut. If you want to create a landing page that’s going to give your visitors what they want, here’s seven tips worth writing down:

» 1. Use compelling copy Just because your copy reads well doesn’t mean it’s compelling. Truth be told, compelling copy features psychological elements embedded into it like social validation. These elements are often what compels your audience to take action. » 2. Have a call-to-action As a general rule, your call-to-actions should be in areas where you’ve provided massive value to your readers. If your customers want to engage with you, make it easy. Adding a floating CTA also works. » 3. Make your relevance apparent Those who arrive on landing pages often have a goal in mind, so be relevant from the get-go. Don’t make them start clicking around looking for things. Address their questions and concerns early on. » 4. No distractions Use one type of call-to-action per landing page. You don’t want your audience to get confused or distracted. Never ask your audience to

Book Rec The Innovation Code: The Creative Power of Constructive Conflict By Jeff DeGraff, Staney DeGraff In their new book, “The Innovation Code – The Creative Power of Constructive Conflict,” Jeff and Staney DeGraff talk about the importance of clashing. Innovation, they write, happens when you bring people with contrasting perspectives and complementary areas of expertise together in one room. We innovate best with people who challenge us, not people who agree with us. It sounds like a recipe for chaos and confusion. But thanks to a simple framework the DeGraffs

share, buy or contact you all at the same time. Be careful not to distract your visitors from your main goal.

» 5. Carefully crafted headlines Your headlines must be clear, concise, relevant and punchy. These characteristics will ensure (somewhat) that your audience will continue reading the copy on your landing page. » 6. Add testimonials Adding testimonials builds credibility. What makes it so effective is the fact that testimonials are not sales pitches. They come across as unbiased. To make the testimonials more credible, add your client’s profile picture and a short bio about who they are. » 7. Use images or videos that are relevant to the copy Countless case studies show that images and videos boost conversion rates. Images and videos help create a clearer mental picture of the ideas you want to convey. Source: Source Bug Media

introduce, you will see how different kinds of thinkers and leaders can create constructive conflict in any organization. This positive tension produces ingenious solutions that go far beyond “the best of both worlds.” Drawing on their work with nearly half of the Fortune 500 companies, they help you harness the creative energy that arises from opposing viewpoints. They identify four contrasting styles of innovator – the Artist, the Engineer, the Athlete, and the Sage – and include exercises and assessments for building, managing, and embracing the dynamic discord of a team that contains all four. You can also figure out where you fit on the continuum of innovator archetypes. By following these simple steps, you will get breakthrough innovations that are both good for you and your customers.

leadership

By Jill Johnson

For the long haul

No. 2 E  stablish a Realistic Vision for the Future Lasting business leaders also match their vision to their abilities. They leverage one success into another rather than rapidly making huge leaps beyond their capabilities. Those who don’t have a realistic vision risk everything because they reach too high before their cash, talent or operational capability is ready for higher levels of success. Enduring leaders actively and effectively manage their transitions and hire sophisticated talent to match their future needs. Their success is sustainable because they build it on a viable foundation that is based in reality, not on wishful thinking.

Eight essential strategies for achieving business longevity

No. 3 U  se Disciplined Approaches to Developing Leadership and Executive Skills You've settled on the perfect craft beer. Now, all you can do is dream of passing it along to everyone and anyone who is a craft beer lover. The formula is perfect. But what about the future? Everyone who starts or leads a business dreams of passing it along to the next generation, but few are successful in making it happen. Every year, countless businesses and organizations fail. Excuses are made and fingers are pointed. Long-term success takes more than hard work and a little luck. Leaders and entrepreneurs who achieve exceptional business longevity share eight business practices that moved them to long-term success. They think differently. They operate differently. They lead differently. Here the eight essential strategies for achieving your business longevity:

No. 1 Engage in Ongoing Planning Successful executives and entrepreneurs prepare for success on an ongoing basis, not just when they are in start-up mode. They move beyond their initial business plan to augment their success by leveraging new opportunities and seeking ideas to enhance operations and profitability. They are disciplined in writing down their plans, reviewing them and sharing them with their key employees and advisors. They know ongoing planning keeps them focused and moving forward. These leaders continually, and formally, evaluate what's working and what needs to change.

Leaders who operate enduring enterprises understand experience is critical; not just with the operational or technical expertise, but also with the ability to lead, manage and weather the daily challenges of not having someone tell you what to do. These leaders understand they need to continue cultivating their ability to manage and create strategies. Leaders with enduring success continue developing and enhancing their skills to build their business arsenal. They read. They hire the consulting and professional talent they need to augment their internal expertise.

leadership

success, yet few leaders have the self-discipline to manage their cash flow for the inevitable peaks and valleys. They respond to immediate pressures and spend money they don’t have. Too many leaders spend money on the flash and glitz trying to impress people. They never prepare for the future because they’re focused on living in the moment. Some make ill-advised decisions that create financial crises, rather than making prudent commitments they can realistically handle. Successful leaders of enduring enterprises focus on building real net worth by being masters at financial discipline and tightly controlling what they spend.

No. 5 A  dapt to Changing Circumstances Markets change and technology advances. Those who are successful over the long-term understand and adapt to change. They invest in people and technology to enhance productivity. They stay on top of competitors and respond as necessary. By continually adapting, they are able to leverage the evolving trends that are fundamentally transforming their industries. Enduring leaders create enterprises that last well beyond their tenure, always looking ahead to identify tools, resources, ideas and technology that can enhance their organizational success.

No. 6 B  uild Substance Into the Enterprise Businesses and organizations have come and gone over the decades. Some succeeded brilliantly, but most failed to meet the expectations hyped by their founders and owners. The primary reason is lack of sub-

stance to the enterprise; most of what was promoted was smoke and mirrors. Sustainable enterprises have substance. They deliver on their promises. Clients, vendors and employees can count on them. These enterprises demonstrate a consistency of product and service quality that can be trusted over time. An ongoing reputation for dependability is often a real predictor of long-term enterprise success.

No. 7 Control Growth Those who survive long-term carefully and deliberately manage the size and growth of their enterprises. Those who focus on growth ensure they have adequate finances, equipment and staff to meet their evolving needs. Those who maintain a smaller size often find they can better manage the stability of their overhead and fixed costs. Maintenance-oriented enterprises may even make more money and have less stress than their growth-oriented peers. Both growth and maintenance-oriented leaders who succeed over the long term effectively manage their appetite for risk and keep business scope within their comfort zone. They maintain leadership enthusiasm through controlled growth or by achieving sustained financial success.

Leaders who enjoy enduring business success have learned to constantly adapt and evolve.

No. 8 Maintain Motivation

Staying motivated is tough in any enterprise after the euphoria of taking over or starting up dies down. Once the day-to-day activities begin to become routine, most people lose their enthusiasm. Even harder is dealing with the real stresses of leadership. Boredom is often a leader’s worst enemy. Leaders of enduring enterprises motivate themselves and their employees by continuing to look for new opportunities to better meet client needs. This provides an atmosphere of innovation and ongoing success measured in revenues, customer satisfaction and employee retention. Leaders who enjoy enduring business success have learned to constantly adapt and evolve. They respond to continuing competitive pressures by finding ways to meet evolving client needs. The secret to long-term sustainable success is doing things with discipline and excellence. Leaders of enduring enterprises both big and small do more than just dream of success; they make their success a reality by taking the actions necessary to achieve it, and make it last.

A

fter quitting his job at Goose Island, Josh Deth had one mission – to start his own craft brewery. It was a big move, especially since he had just been promoted to brewer. But the dream is something that captivated Deth for a long time. It started in college at the University of Michigan, where he took up the fine art of home brewing, and wound its way through stints at Golden Prairie and Goose Island. It waited while he worked in an affordable housing-related non profit, earned a degree in urban planning, opened a vegan restaurant and held down an executive director post at neighborhood chamber of commerce. And even after he was spurned by a dozen banks and a handful of investors, Deth's dream picked up steam in 2008 when he found a large space with a tin ceiling in the up-andcoming trendy Logan Square neighborhood in Chicago. With a newly approved bank loan, he and his wife, Krista Sahakian, pushed onward. Two years later, Revolution Brewing was born with its first brewery in Avondale. Today, between its brewery and brewpub, Revolution produces dozens of different beer styles every year, including IPAs, porters, pilsners, Belgian-style ales, pale ales, barrel-aged beers, and the list goes on. Craft Brewing and Marketing sat down with CFO Doug Veliky to get his take on what the future holds for Revolution Brewing and why the market is ripe for growth.

Give us a snapshot of today's craft brew market from your perspective.

I see the craft beer market as a confusing place right now. Consumers are overwhelmed by choice and want to join the movement, but aren’t always aware of who is truly “craft” or who is even local. In some cases, consumers are making purchases while thinking they're supporting a local brand, when the beer in fact is brewed on the opposite side of the country.

What trends are defining the space? I have a couple. Hop-forward beers still seem to dominate the space, particularly IPAs that are aggressively hopped and bring out a fruity, tropical or citrusy taste and aroma. There’s also a movement into bigger packages from craft breweries compared to what we’ve seen in the past. There are 12 packs and beyond, as well as tall boys. This is allowing craft to continue to chip away into new sections of the coolers where they were once too small to play.

What is the Revolution story from a brand perspective? Revolution Brewing was built on the idea of “beer for the people” at the cusp of the recent craft beer revolution. To parallel the theme, our founder Josh (Deth) drew on a number of elements from Russian Constructivist propaganda and incorporated them into our graphics. Several of our early beers were inspired by the theme of revolution, including Anti-Hero, Bottom Up Wit and Eugene Porter. The branding of our seasonal beers match that of these three-year round options. In order to maintain our fun and easygoing personalities, some more playful characters were created and incorporated into the seasonals, including our Oktoberfest Tuba man, Fistmas Santa and even our brewer, Matty with A Little Crazy. The Hero Series of rotating specialty IPAs provides a platform for our brewers to work with the most exciting and often experimental hops available. We also use this line as a means to summon our inner comic and superhero geek. Lastly, we have a series of easy drinking beers that we brew for our local fans here in Chicago. We haven’t given the line an official title

yet, but the branding has a clean, classic vibe, while paying tribute to our city’s imagery.

What's the biggest issue today related to the marketing side of the craft beer side of the business? Authenticity is the biggest issue. The breweries that have the best intentions at heart tend to have the most loyal following. Communicating these intentions to consumers is a constant challenge faced by craft breweries. For consumers to buy in to their brand story, the stories must be honest, genuine and built internally. Paying an outside party to develop your brand story for you would be inauthentic, in my opinion, and likely sniffed out by today’s well-educated consumer.

We lead by example and find ways to work with other organizations who we respect and admire. That’s how we view marketing.

JULY/AUGUST 2017

CBAM-MAG.COM

What is the one thing that every craft beer brand should be doing in the way of marketing? Every craft brewery should be soliciting ideas from their employees at the company for how best to celebrate the brand and work their suggestions and faces into the finished product.

What is today's craft beer consumer looking for? Not too long ago, I wouldn’t have hesitated and said "variety." In 2017, however, I’m seeing the shift from variety to reliability. Consumers want to pick up beer knowing that it’s going to be great and taste exactly like the last time they had it.


Define your consumers. What are they looking for? I feel confident answering this question having been a Revolution consumer for six years before joining the company. Revolution consumers appreciate the high degree of quality and consistency achieved, while remaining the freshest beer in our market. Additionally, our fans appreciate how accessible and approachable the beers are. For specialty beers especially, some breweries love the idea of long lines for their beers, while we’re constantly looking for ways to avoid them and get everyone their beers as quickly and conveniently as possible.

Describe a typical day. There’s no such thing and I hope that never changes. I’m in an unusual role as the CFO with a significant number of marketing-related responsibilities. The last month included the preparation of our Q2 Financial results, preparing over 17 new distribution contracts and coordinating the development of more than 20 new can and carton designs. It’s been a doozy. I used to try to distance myself from the term jack-of-all-trades, but now I just embrace it.

Tell us what makes the Revolution brand so unique? The Revolution brand is unique in that it serves as a symbol for everything great about the entire craft beer industry. We aren’t just revolting against the mass-produced beer lacking flavor and complexity. We’re leading a

What do you see as some of your biggest opportunities moving ahead? In my opinion, our biggest opportunity still remains right here in Chicago. Despite being the largest independent craft brewery in the state, I still feel like we have an endless amount of opportunities to seek out here at home.

What's the biggest item on your to-do list right now? I can only pick one? We are getting set to announce our much-anticipated barrel-aged beers, which will be arriving this fall and winter. The beers will be in a new size and format, with updated branding and involve new processes to ensure they are of the highest quality. I’ve been working round-the-clock to ensure the packaging properly exemplifies the vision of our brewers and leadership team, while developing the means of communicating all the changes to our excited fans.

Doug Veliky, CFE Revolution Brewing What’s the most rewarding part of your job? I wrote an email over Thanksgiving break last year to our Innovation Committee, a little more two months after joining Revolution that pitched four new beer ideas. Watching Tropic Hero cans go through the canning line in June was a special moment for me as a longtime beer enthusiast who has never home-brewed in his life. The artwork for a second beer from that same email is currently with our can company and will be released in October.

What was the best advice you ever received? Bill Simmons, my favorite sports/pop culture personality, was interviewing Katie Nolan in 2015 on his ESPN podcast. Katie was a bartender in a college town who eventually started a sports blog on the side, grinded away at it for years, and eventually wound up with her own show on Fox Sports. Early in the conversation, a quick sidebar comes up that I’ve never forgotten: Bill: “I always get that question from people, where people are like, ‘How do I get into the business? What should I do? Give me advice.’ There’s no advice other than outwork everybody else. That’s really literally the only advice” Katie: “Do something so often that when you wake up every morning, it’s like, well this is my job, I just have to do it. Then you get to a point where you’re in a routine and you stop worrying so much and you just say, ‘It’s my job, I have to do it.’” Katie is referring to her side passion of sports blogging, not her day-to-day job. Around this time, I had faced a big disappointment with

104

a promising opportunity that fell just short. But this podcast put me back on track with my goal of finding my role in the beer industry. I quickly decided that rather than feel sorry for myself, I’d take this simply put line and just outwork everybody else instead.

What's the best thing a customer ever said to you? The first thing that comes to mind is a comment I read on a beer forum after our Deth’s Tar release last year, our biggest beer release of the year. This meant a lot to me because this is exactly what we strive for: “What I'm saying is that Revolution is doing something I like. If they have the capacity to brew all of that beer, they also have the capacity to host a big stanky "Deth Day" to be held the weekend before Christmas, annually. Tickets $300. Limit four beers, $20 each. But a free Deth's Tar can koozie. They could do all of that (or something far less hyperbolic). The Chicago Beer Scene has shown a near infinite capacity for limited release hype. I have no doubt that with their resources and size, they could capture a lot of that hype with their limited releases. It appears to me that Revolution could do all of that hype stuff, yet they choose not to. As long as they keep doing that, they get all of my e-high fives.” This meant a lot to me because it’s exactly what we discuss internally all the time. Respect and be fair to our customers.

social revolution in which we make and promote environmentally conscious decisions and investments, while always engaging our communities to develop unique grassroots partnerships. We lead by example and find ways to work with other organizations who we respect and admire. That’s how we view marketing.

What should people expect from Revolution moving forward? For starters, they should expect to see us continue investing in the quality of our beer. While we’re happy with where we are right now, we’re always looking for

ways to ensure our beer lives up to the high expectations of our consumers. We have a new $1 million filler and seamer arriving in September, an investment driven almost entirely by the reduction of dissolved oxygen in the can, allowing our beer to taste fresher for longer. We’re going to stay on the cutting edge on multiple fronts, including our Hero Series. Our League of Heroes variety pack has provided a platform to ensure we stay on top of the latest cutting-edge hops and continue innovating within the IPA category. Each pack changes approximately every four months and promises a new hero making his “first appearance.”


Craft beer’s

ace in the hole By Eric Balinski The stats about the growth and success of the craft beer industry are the things business legends are built upon. From its humble beginning only a few decades ago, it is a true marvel to witness what the army of passionate craft brewers has created. According to the Brewers Association, craft brewers in 2016 accounted for 12.3 percent of U.S. beer sales. What? Wait? You mean 87.7 percent of the market is still served by non-craft brewers? But there are more than 5,300 motivated craft brewers working on this? I know what you’re thinking – it’s Big Beer that has stacked the deck. They hold all the aces. They’re just too big, have too much distribution power, and hold too much money and resources to go against. Consequently, craft brewers need to primarily play to their strong suit – collegially community serving the tastes of the most discriminating beer drinking consumers.

Before going further, here is a true story to challenge that belief. A number of years ago there were three major Global Fortune 500 players that owned a particular product category. (No names are needed, as it's more important to understand the lesson rather than dismiss the lesson with the notion that craft beer industry is “different”). They competed only with themselves, controlling the vertical and horizontal of every new technology or idea and how the market worked. Ironically this industry started as a craft industry, grew and scaled through mass production. Ultimately, the industry consolidated leading to these three players, who upon gaining control, turned themselves back into being craft producers, with each company offering a magnificent variety of higher priced product variations and combinations (400 to 700), or in craft beer terms, any type, flavor or style any customer could ever want. Then, along came a start-up who took the time to understand the customer’s world. They conceived a world of very few choices for the customer (only five or six), but one in which the customer received greater and more meaningful benefits through a completely new sales and distribution model.

All about the outcome Though there is a lot more to the story, the outcome is what matters. They played their cards to end-up holding a Straight Flush: In only 10

years, this start-up became larger and more profitable than all three of the global players combined by remaking the industry back into a mass production industry again. Who would have thought? The lessons for the craft beer industry are relevant and worth pondering the implications: • Understand your customers’ world • Understand the world of potential customers • Accepting all industry beliefs likely limits your opportunities • Focusing on your product leaves you vulnerable to someone who takes the time to understand how to make the customer’s world better Now ask yourself this: Who are our customers? My hunch is most craft brewers would not typically describe their customers as any of the people who make up the 87.7 percent. After all, a craft brewer makes an artisan product that the 87.7 percenters would not appreciate. Sure, if they were to wander into your taproom, they would get served. But how many craft brewers are eager to see them walk through the door? And how much do brewers really understand them to encourage them to come in? No question the craft beer’s history is impressive. But let’s puts the cards on the table. Until the industry intentionally and decisively goes after the other 87.7 percent of the market, its sales growth will continue to flatten. Doubling down on only your current

customers likely will have less pay-off too. Worse, Big Beer already raised the ante and taken the game directly to the craft beer industry by buying many of its larger and successful players. In other words, they want your stake of the 12.3 percent. Hold on, the new “Independent Craft” label recently launched by the Brewers Association will surely save the day for a craft brewer. Won’t it? Isn’t this designation to tell the beer drinking world that craft beers are better and locally made by people who care more than the nefarious Big Beers do? Frankly, if that is the strategy for the industry, the Association is as cocky as the King of Spades. The 87.7 percenters, and probably many of the 12.3 percent percenters, likely could care less. Trying to convince them a beer made in the same U.S. facility is no longer craft because it is now owned by Big Beer, is playing a weak hand. Penalizing these larger craft brands simply because they became popular and grew to the point that someone bought them, is overplaying a weak hand in a fast moving game. It even sounds more like some sort of bluff which will do little to enhance any brand’s reputation with beer buying customers. Here is the good news; the industry has a few Aces to play, starting with the 87.7 percent of the market craft brewers are not selling to. To do so, craft brewer must read the cards to discover how to bring a better experience to this end of the market. In the May/June issue of Craft Brand and Marketing Magazine,

the article, "Strategic Thinking: The New Game Board," shares an approach to how to figure this out. Don’t deal yourself a bad hand by believing the craft beer industry’s claim that there are real preference and taste differences between craft beer drinkers, which tend to be younger, and Big Beer drinkers, who tends to be older. In a 2013 survey of more than 41,000 consumers, Nielsen found that “delicious, smooth taste and refreshing – remain consistent regardless of age when it comes to buying beer.” This belief between a younger craft beer drinkers and older Big Beer drinkers is more myth than reality. This perception will leave any business who believes it worse off because they are not pursuing customers who likely would buy from them.

Big Beer drinker may have much more in common with your current customers than you might ever consider.

Defining the perception

Paul Taylor, executive VP at the Pew Research Center in Washington, D.C., and author of "The Next America," isn't convinced the perception is real either. Taylor and his colleagues reviewed decades of demographic data. They found no signs of an intergenerational tension or storm brewing across a variety of topics. They did find the myth is “all media smoke and no fire.” "The generation war just feels like a nonstarter," Taylor says. "Look at the attitude of the combatants. On these much deeper levels of whether they represent each other's values and get along, we found very little conflict." In other words, the Big Beer drinker may have much more in common with your current customers than you might ever consider. And the most common characteristic is they all like to drink beer that is delicious, smooth and refreshing. Finally, if you only focus on a better experience for the 12.3 percent market, you will continue to have 5,300 competitors to divide up the smallest share of the market. Instead, deal yourself into the opportunity with Big Beer drinkers by finding out Eric Balinski is what would make a better experience for them. the owner of Not to mention, this demographic also makes up Synection, LLC, the richest portion of the U.S. population, with an which is a strategy estimated accumulated wealth of $30-plus trillion and growth held by older generations now looking to enjoy the consultancy reminder of their days. firm.

Thinking (in and) out of the box

When you ask the greatest companies the secret to their success you’ll often hear a phrase repeated – we thought outside of the box. The statement sounds cliché, but when was the last time you took a chunk of time to actively think about your strategy, where you want to be in the market in five years, and what – if anything is going to differentiate you in a market that continues to become more and more saturated. As we see more research indicating that consumers often go to a point of sale without knowing what specific beer they want, and instead choose beer based off of the label, we find ourselves with an ever expanding dilemma. First, with increased limitations on flashy (sexy) images under the Brewers Association Marketing and Advertising Code update, images may be less successful for brand purposes then in the past. Second, as more and more breweries enter the market – brewing more and more beer – scooping up fun and relevant beer names is becoming more and more difficult. Thus we are faced with the importance of breweries identifying a way to differentiate themselves from competitors – and one way to do that is to think globally. In an industry that is as highly regulated as beer, sometimes it is hard for brewers and owners to stay outside of the box with concepts other than recipes and marketing, but breweries need to stop thinking within these limited parameters and to really think big picture.

How do you stand out in a global marketplace

I know when I say geographic reach or global you immediately start thinking regulations, legal bills, accounting nightmares, but honestly, if you’re not thinking outside the box right now, and taking steps to differentiate your beer – and your brewery – what will the future hold? Also with the right team – these “nightmare” concepts should not be the nightmare you’re envisioning. Take for example the Maine Brewers Guild – not a brewery in and of itself, but definitely an organization looking out for the beer scene in general. In June, I was lucky enough to join the Maine Brewers Guild and brewers from all over the state of Maine to Reykjavik, Iceland with a contraption affectionately known as the Maine Beer Box.

The Maine Beer Box is essentially a 40-foot-long refrigerated shipping container that has been outfitted with 78 taps from 40 Maine breweries. The Guild calls it the “largest kegerator ever built.” So the Guild packed up this outfitted container box with beer, put it on a boat, and shipped it across the Atlantic. What happened to the beer once it arrived in Iceland you may ask? Well naturally we drank it (yes we travelled from Maine, to Iceland, to drink Maine beer – you know what they say about a change of scenery). The Maine Brewers Guild in collaboration with EIMSKIP and a number of other Icelandic and Maine companies worked together to provide Icelanders with the largest beer festival in the history of their country. And then, that kegerator re-crossed the Atlantic filled with Icelandic beer for sharing with Mainers at the Maine Brewers Guild Summer Session Brew Fest. Pretty cool if you ask me. But why, you ask, is an attorney sharing this with me – where does branding and the law collide with my brewery. First, like multiple people before have said, think outside the box – or in the Guild’s case creatively change the box itself. Think of creative ways to offer your beer to a market that may be underserved by the craft beer industry. That may be a segment of the population or a geographic location – whether here or internationally that simply doesn’t have the same access to the good craft beer that you currently provide in a more localized region.

Watching thousands of individuals in a foreign country experience the largest brew festival in their history, and drinking fresh quality beer from a place that is over 2,000 miles away, is an experience that is difficult to put into words but truly was amazing. When people are coming up to you and asking what stores they can buy the beer at, and approaching Maine brewers at Icelandic bars (treating them like kings and queens) when they learn that they are here to bring variety to the beer market, you know that you have a market that is watering at the mouth for something new to touch their lips.

In an industry that is as highly regulated as beer, sometimes it is hard for brewers and owners to stay outside of the box with concepts other than recipes and marketing.

I would presume that there are other untapped locations out there that have the same desire. And accordingly, it’s important to discuss the multitude of questions that must be answered before U.S. beer touches the lips of consumers in the international market including: • How does the beer physically get there? • As it’s leaving who (read government agency) do we need to tell it’s leaving and/or what paperwork is involved? • Once it arrives at it’s destination who (I’m talking government agencies again here) needs to be informed it’s arrived? • What are the tax consequences, both in the United States and abroad? • Do you need relationships with distributors? • How is beer sold in the country – in select retail facilities or everywhere? • What does the beer scene currently look like in this area? Yes, these are the questions that accountants, custom brokers, attorneys, and others can help you through. My recommendation – create a good team. A team to which you can say, this is my vision, how can we make it happen and then you go about and make it happen. The taxes may seem steep, the import/export regulations may seem tedious, but if you can sell your beer for $20 a pint in a different market and make a larger profit, is it potentially worth the investment? Do the upfront costs make the investment worth the while if it can brand you the first (or only) of something in a market?

Second, think about your brand without the flashy images and the names of the beers. What do consumers remember about you? I hope the answer is you make great beer, but even so, why would someone choose your great beer over someone else’s? What makes you stand out in a market where everyone is trying to stand out? Maybe you make great beer, and that in and of itself is going to be sufficient, but to me the beer that people crave are the beers with a story, whether it’s personal to their life, or just a great story in general – the first beer from Idaho in Icelandic bars, the collaboration beer specially crafted for the local beer-scene’s powerhouse couple’s wedding. Those are beers with stories, and those are beers that will sell when the market is oversaturated and tapped out (pun intentional). Watching Maine beer touch the lips of beer enthusiasts in Iceland for the first time is a memory that I think will always give me butterflies. Explaining the concept of a brew festival in general to a large contingency of the Icelandic guests was simultaneously educational and insightful – many had never attended a brew fest. But being involved in a project where a dream became a reality – and resulted in the formation of international brewery relationships and collaborations that saw no geographic boarders was immensely satisfying. But all those things were only possible because someone literally thought outside the box – and made the box into exactly what they needed it to be.

Say cheeeese... The “World’s Most Focal Selfie Studio” began as a Mosaic Tile Design Contest By Ron Treister

T

he burgeoning worldwide evolution of the “selfie” was inevitable from Day 1. Let’s face it. Almost everyone has a cellphone, the great majority of which are smartphones with cameras. You want selfies, just look at the numbers. A British study shows that 1.5 billion were taken annualy in the UK alone, with one in 10 admitting to snapping one at least once a week. A U.S. study shows that nearly 50 percent say their smartphones were the most important device for going online, compared to 37 percent who opt for their laptops. So, it shouldn’t be surprising that there would eventually be a selfie studio. And, where else would you expect it to be than Las Vegas. The idea comes from the Design ’N Gather (DNG) mosaic contest that Bostik has conducted with Artaic Innovative Mosaic. In 2016, the winning entry was a huge backlit 8-foot x 20-foot tile mural, permanently installed poolside at the MGM Grand’s Wet Republic day club in Las Vegas.

112

For the 2017 contest, Bostik partnered with MGM Resorts International to have the winning entry unveiled once more as a permanent installation at the new nightclub/discotheque “The Height Of Decadence”/Hyde Bellagio. But this contest had a twist. The winning mosaic would serve as the backdrop for a selfie studio, setting it on course to be one of the most frequently photographed mosaics in the world. The overall plan was intricate. A small retail section of the nightclub was to be transformed into the selfie studio featuring an 8-foot x 8-foot backlit mosaic. The goal was to have night owl guests saunter into the studio, pose in front of the mural and capture the image on a special tablet-based, selfie camera program that would email the photo to any selected email address or social media site. “Everyone loved the selfie concept,” says Scott Banda, Bostik’s director of marketing and business development for North America. The project was given an eight-week timetable, from design to final installation. The players in charge of making it happen included Bostik, Artaic,

Laminam® by Crossville was specified for the selfie studio’s walls. On the evening of May 5, with more than 600 amped-up industry thought-leading guests from the hospital design sector in attendance, co-emcees Banda and Dr. Ted Acworth, founder and CEO of Artaic, brought the late-night soiree to its crescendo when architectural designer Lisa Darroh-Pouls of Albuquerque, N.M.’s Pouls Hospitality Design was named the Grand Prize winner. After the cord was pulled on her creation, "Champagne Wishes" was introduced as the larger-than-life glass mosaic backdrop for what now is referred to as the "World's Most Focal Selfie Studio." "This project was ideal for Hyde,” MGM’s Vakil says. “Clearly, it was beautifully designed and perfectly themed for the environment of our nightclub." CCR

and Las Vegas general contractor Team Construction and tile contractor T. Nickolas Company. “We were approached by Joyen Vakil (MGM Resorts International’s senior VP of design and development),” says Paul King, senior project manager of Team Construction. “We have a strong history of working together, so Joyen asked me point-blank if we’d like to partner in a design-assist capacity with Bostik.” One of the most recent product launches within the tile sector worldwide has been the emergence of large format, gauged thin porcelain tile panels. Major tile producers are manufacturing these in sizes as large as 8 feet x 12 feet. There are many advantages to using these – one being that durable porcelain can now clad (or, “skin”) a wall in sizes unheard of, right over existing tile. This process eliminates the costly, messy and time-consuming need to remove already-installed, older tile.

Taking the competition onstage Bostik’s new mission is straightforward – focus on building its brand awareness globally. As director of marketing and business development Scott Banda says, while Bostik’s products end up in unique places, the company is basically selling construction adhesives, not glamorous materials. So Banda – under the direction of Mike Jenkins, Bostik’s business manager for the Consumer & Construction Business Unit – Americas, and with marketing communications manager Chris Eichman – challenged his team and partners to think out-of-the-box to help elevate its position in the commercial building sector. For the past two years, Bostik, along with Artaic Innovative Mosaics, has co-sponsored the “Design ‘N Gather/DNG,” a global mosaic design competition. The competition has helped build a strong partnership with MGM Resorts International (see “Say cheeeeeese! Welcome to the ‘World's Most Focal Selfie Studio.’") During last year’s DNG, the winning design, a larger-than-life, stunning 20-foot x 8-foot backlit mural, was unveiled in front of 1,500 hospitality designers as a permanent installation at MGM Grand’s Wet Republic day club in Las Vegas. And, for an encore, this past

May, DNG brought a mosaic selfie studio to Bellagio’s Hyde Discotheque with the winning entry. Later on this summer, Bostik is staging another competition focusing on wood flooring. The winning design will end up in a new steakhouse, as part of a $500 million transformation of Las Vegas’s former Monte Carlo Hotel & Resort. “MGM Resorts International architectural leaders Joyen Vakil and Steve Jung always look to tomorrow,” Banda says. That’s why they insisted on one of the world's most heralded hospitality design firms to create the steakhouse’s interior: Martin Brudnizki Design. To find the right wood suppliers for this project, they turned to Oshkosh Designs, which will fabricate the winning flooring design, and Eagle Bay Hardwood Flooring, a newer all-American producer of wood floor products. And the competitions are pushing past state side, with two events scheduled in Mexico. Partners include Artaic, waterjet fabricator Creative Edge Master Shop and 10 of Mexico’s top artists. “Our competitions have been so strongly received,” Banda says. “We're working with our affiliates to launch similar activities in other parts of the world.”

ll that meat. It comes at you in waves. If you are not hungry, don’t go to Fogo de Chão. It might as well be the restaurant chain’s mantra. “A ‘meat-

eater’s mecca.” That was the description given to the Brazilian steakhouse – Fogo de Chão – in its first U.S. review by a Dallas Morning News restaurant critic. The review was spot on, being patrons are treated to skewers of meat delivered and carved table-side by Brazilian-trained Gaucho Chefs. And sure, while there is a Market Table and desserts to die for, you come for the meat. That’s what brothers Arri and Jair Coser had in mind when they started their rustic churrascaria (or “steakhouse”) in 1979 in the city of Porto Alegre. After visiting steakhouses in Europe and the U.S., the brothers eventually opened their first international branch in Dallas. Using the Dallas location as a test kitchen, the brothers invested in Brazilian meat cuts not common in the States.

And as the love of their concept took off, they started to build on the momentum, eventually taking it to cities such as Atlanta, Orlando, Las Vegas, Chicago, L.A., Washington, D.C., etc., as well as throughout Brazil. Today, there are 48 Fogo restaurants throughout the United States, Brazil and Mexico. Commercial Kitchens sat down with Helio Vieira, GM of the Fogo de Chão in Bellevue, Wash., to get an inside look at what makes the steakhouse tick and what lies ahead.

Give us a snapshot of the Fogo brand.

Brazilian cooking technique of churrasco. Fogo offers guests a wide variety of simply seasoned meats that are carefully fire-roasted to expose their natural flavors.

What type of consumer are you targeting?

We’re extremely proud of our broad appeal and diverse guest base. On a typical day at Fogo, you can find everyone from young families or Millennials who may have saved for a special occasion dining next to our business guests who visit a few times a month for either client dinners or to enjoy our lunch offering. Further, more than 40 percent of our guests are female. You don’t tend to see such diversity at traditional steakhouses. We’re continually focused on creating new ways for guests to experience Fogo at a variety of price points and time commitments. We’re proud of the connection that we’ve built with so many audiences across the U.S. and around the world. Specifically at our Bellevue location, we’re seeing a lot of Millennials and empty nesters dining following the growth of local business in the area.

How does the design cater to what today’s consumers are looking for?

Today’s consumer is looking for that experiential high-end touch, coupled with great value. Both are offered at Fogo. At our Bellevue location, high ceilings and a dining room flanked on two sides by

118

large windows allow for a lot of natural light and offer a great vantage point no matter where you sit.

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

Designing Fogo restaurants is very unique because of our unique style of service. We like to call what happens in our spacious dining room the “Fogo Ballet.” Our Gaucho Chefs walk around the dining room serving guests and carving meat table side. This setup demands that there be plenty of space between tables, and we’ve found guests appreciate the level of privacy this offers. The heart of the restaurant is the churrasqueira, or grill area, where Gaucho Chefs prepare and grill a variety of meats. Our open kitchen provides guests a sneak peek into this centuries-old culinary tradition. Fogo’s seasonal Market Table is also nearby in the center of the restaurant. This is important to the flow of the experience for both the gaucho and the guest, operationally and enjoyment-wise. We ensure every area of the restaurant has something unique and beautiful, and adds to the atmosphere in a way that is congruent with the Fogo brand. For example, the seasonal Market Table has a variety of beautiful colors – from the food itself to the gorgeous floral arrangements that adorn it. The visual variety offers an opportunity for guests to explore and serves as a social area to gather before heading back to your table.

Our strategy for construction and design is to have the restaurant be warm and contemporary, yet timeless and welcoming – and all pay homage to Fogo’s Brazilian roots. We’ve designed our restaurants with the guest in mind and work to ensure that from the time they approach restaurant – whether at the valet stands or from the sidewalk – and throughout their meal, their interests remain top-of-mind, and their needs are catered to.

That distinction belongs to folks in north Queen Anne, where average annual household spending on dining out exceeds $6,000.

In recent years, the number of construction projects has continued to increase. This can put higher pressure on timelines and costs for both labor and materials with any new project.

We are really excited for the future here at Fogo. We see great opportunities with our recent relaunch of our expanded Bar Fogo menu, as well as in group dining. We’re also working to drive our existing platforms with new menu innovations that better cater to today’s guests. For example, one of our new lunch options starts at just $15.

Consumers demand a unique, differentiated concept, from interesting restaurant design and architecture, to diversified meal platforms. Topnotch service is also a must. When looking at new locations, we focus on our potential guests in that community and the strength of key economic drivers that influence the region. Bellevue is the second largest submarket in the region with its growing supply of hotel rooms, meeting space and proximity to Interstates 90 and 405. We believe that Fogo will be well-received within the city’s growing restaurant scene.

Our strategy for construction and design is to have the restaurant be warm and contemporary, yet timeless and welcoming – and all pay homage to Fogo’s Brazilian roots.

What is today’s consumer looking for?

Today’s consumer is looking for quality, timelessness and incredible service. They are also looking for engagement with brands they support. That’s why we take our heritage and brand so seriously – who we are and where we come from matters. Our Brazilian roots help us reach a large, diverse audience that craves a connection with a brand they admire and visit often.

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

Equal to our efforts to provide the most hospitable dining experience available is our effort to grow the brand in a deliberate way. While Fogo is growing both domestically and internationally at a steady pace, we painstakingly consider each location where we decide to open a restaurant. There is nothing haphazard about it.

A ‘MEAT-EATER’S MECCA’

COMMERCIAL KITCHENS

Every Fogo location has been considered according to its location demographic, the surrounding retail, living space and food options, the available square footage, and so on. While some restaurants may have the ability and choose to rapidly open locations, we prefer a very measured and deliberate approach.

Describe a typical day.

One of the best aspects of working at Fogo is that no day is typical, and we love it. Our work requires us to meet with many different people from all walks of life. We travel and get to enjoy new

experiences, and above all else, get to serve incredible food to our beloved guests with authentic, unmatched hospitality.

Tell us what makes your restaurants so unique?

Fogo was founded in 1979 in Porto Alegre, Brazil, and expanded into the U.S. in 1997. Our deep-rooted heritage in Brazil is proliferated throughout our restaurants worldwide, and offers guests a unique experience they can’t get at any other steakhouse. To further complement the dining experience, we offer additional dining options to enjoy the best of Brazil at varying price points. CK

GM, Fogo de Chão Bellevue

What’s the most rewarding part of your job?

For any leader or manager, the most rewarding part of the job is seeing the satisfaction on a guest’s face after a job well done. It’s wonderful when the team receives positive feedback from guests, confirming that we’ve left a lasting impression on them and provided them with a delightful experience.

What was the best advice you ever received?

It was from my uncle back home in Brazil. He said, “Always be you, be fair, and be honest.” If you stay on that path, everything else will follow.

What’s the best thing a client ever said to you? Years ago, we had a very loyal guest who used to always ask for me every time she dined with us; I used to love chatting with her. One day she came in and asked for me, as usual, but something seemed a bit different. It turned out that she had recently lost her daughter, and all she wanted in that moment was a hug from a friend. That moment will always stay with me as one of the most special of my career.

Name the three strongest traits any leader should have and why.

Leaders need to be dreamers; they need to envision where they want to go and take the necessary steps to

122

get there. Believe in yourself. They also also need to be honest. Finally, a leader needs to be fair.

What is the true key to success for any manager?

The key is transparency. Make sure your team understands what you expect from them, get everyone on the same page and maintain open lines of communication in order for there to be a clear understanding of team expectations. Be a coach, a mentor. Everything is so much easier when everyone is on the same page.

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

Personally speaking, I’d like to visit Mexico. Professionally speaking, I’d like to align everything in Bellevue to make sure the team is poised and ready to exceed all guest expectations and provide the best experience possible. I’d like to make the Bellevue restaurant the best Fogo de Chão in the system.

What book are you reading now?

I just finished reading “Fundamentals: 9 Ways to Be Brilliant at the New Basics” by Jim Sullivan.

How do you like to spend your down time?

When I’m not working, I love to spend time with my three children. I also like to run, play soccer and spend an afternoon at the movies.

Planning makes perfect Surface preparation for commercial kitchens By Scott Coffey

I

n 2015, it emerged that the beard of one of the most wellknown works of art in the world, the 3,000 year old mask of Tutankhamun, had been accidentally broken off. What made

matters worse was that it had been stuck back on with the wrong type of glue and was damaged as a result.

124

COMMERCIAL CONSTRUCTION & RENOVATION — JULY : AUGUST 2017

The patch-up job was fixed by reattaching the beard using a more appropriate adhesive. Just like using the right glue was important to correctly fix the requirements of the ancient mask, tricky floor renovation jobs require the right surface preparation equipment. Surface preparation for commercial flooring can be a challenging job, and it's certainly not one to be underestimated. Proper surface preparation is essential for a flooring renovation project to be successful in the long-term. But not all surface preparation jobs are created equal. Particular care must be taken in locations with limited square footage, existing equipment and fixtures such as the commercial kitchen.


Protecting equipment

When undertaking a project in commercial environments, such as laboratories and kitchens, the contractor faces a unique set of challenges. One such challenge is that it is not always possible to move expensive equipment out of the room while the surface preparation project is underway. This means that the contractor needs to find a way to protect equipment throughout the duration of the project. Careful analysis of the area by an experienced contractor is necessary at this stage to assess what surface preparation equipment will be most appropriate for the space limitations and the type of flooring that is to be laid down. This way, the contractor can recommend the machinery that meets the requirements of the size and complexity of the space. The best way to approach environments filled with existing equipment is to first eliminate all the obstacles that can be removed. The remaining equipment can then be covered up to prevent damage during renovation. Proper dust collection should be in place, because a dusty environment increases the risks of damaging specialty equipment, such as cookers or fridges. An important part of this is pairing the chosen equipment with the corresponding dust collector.

When undertaking a project in commercial environments, such as laboratories and kitchens, the contractor faces a unique set of challenges.

It is also important that kitchen floors are non-slip to minimize the risks of accidents. A popular low cost flooring choice for kitchens is vinyl. For vinyl flooring to last, good surface preparation is essential, because vinyl has a tendency to stick to uneven surfaces and to rip. Thorough grinding or shot blasting ensures vinyl flooring lasts for longer. Other popular flooring choices include high build epoxy with a non-skid factor, or for commercial kitchens on display to the public, tile may be a more aesthetically pleasing choice. Different floor covering will require different surface preparation, so it's important to understand the specific requirements of every flooring project you work on. If the client has concerns about the project timeline, careful scheduling is the best option. In some projects it is possible to shut down one area at a time, but if this is not possible, careful planning becomes even more important. No matter the schedule, floor preparation in commercial kitchens should never be rushed, as it is important for it to be done using the correct equipment and materials – just like reattaching Tutankhamun’s beard. CK Scott Coffey is territory sales manager at National Flooring Equipment.

Managing difficult spaces

In larger spaces, a high capacity shot blaster, like the 3397 10.5 inch shot blaster could be suitable, but larger equipment is unlikely to be the best choice. In a small space where it is difficult to maneuver equipment, it is best to use a smaller machine. For the difficult to reach areas, such as under built-in cabinets, hand grinding might be necessary. This should be assessed early on as it can be time consuming, particularly if there is a thick mil floor to remove or if a larger area requires hand grinding. To reach directly into difficult corners, contractors can use a corner preparation and polishing tool, which enables them to completely grind the floor to ensure preparation is correct.

Operation Dilawri

Technology helps contractor improve efficiency and meet tight deadline on auto mall site By Jeff Winke

126

COMMERCIAL CONSTRUCTION & RENOVATION — JULY : AUGUST 2017


I

t appears that when S. Dilawri Automotive Group does something big – it is

really big. Dilawri is Canada’s largest group of auto dealers with franchised dealerships representing 30 automotive brands throughout Quebec, Ontario, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia. With more than 3,500 employees, the 32 year old company continues to expand its footprint in Canada.

Its most recent venture is unfolding with the construction of a four-dealership auto mall in Barrhaven, Ontario. Situated in the greater Ottawa area on the northwest corner of Highway 416 and Fallowfield Road, the prime location is expected to serve Nepean, Barrhaven, Manotick, South Kanata, and as far south as Kemptville. Dilawri contracted Ottawa-based MB Ford Construction Ltd. as the project's general contractor and construction management firm. MB Ford specializes in automobile dealerships and auto malls. The company, in turn, subcontracted the complete site-prep of the 350 meters wide, 450 meters long site to Richmond, Ont.-based Rabb Construction Ltd. Founded by two brothers who grew up playing in dirt and who bought their first backhoe while in their early teens, Rabb Construction is a medium-size heavy-civil contractor serving the greater Ottawa and Eastern Ontario markets. The company was formed in 1992 after the brothers returned from the university with their civil engineering degrees. The new Dilawri Auto Mall is a sizeable, heavy civil site work project for Rabb Construction. The facilities for the Auto Mall

OPERATION DILAWRI will be situated on the approximately 15acre site. Rabb needed to level and grade the former stone quarry for the four auto-dealer elevated building pads and their surrounding inventory lots and customer parking. The Rabb contract also includes excavating three, approximately two-acre stormwater runoff retention ponds. Rabb also is responsible for constructing the onsite sewage systems. The project site was a rock quarry where blasting occurred to excavate out the bedrock, which was used to make crushed stone. The quarry was active in the 1970s. The very large open pit was converted into a dump site for clean fill, which benefited all of the local construction contractors. “We were supplied a full set of design drawings, grading plans, storm water management plans and structural plans, which were completed by a team of consultants and designers,” says Brenda Burrows-Rabb, P.Eng., Rabb's GM. “Using this design information, we

COMMERCIAL CONSTRUCTION & RENOVATION — JULY : AUGUST 2017

developed a 3-D site model to use with our Topcon GPS machine control system on our equipment. This site model is also available on our Topcon Tesla tablet data collector hand-held rover. Having field access to the site model increased our efficiency and accuracy.” “We had a fairly aggressive timetable in order to accommodate the two dealerships that were to be built as soon as we finished the site preparation," Burrows-Rabb says. "Plus, there was a commitment for the third dealership, and we needed to complete enough work on the fourth location to help the owner market it.” It was a frigid day, when Rabb Construction first arrived on the snow-covered site. The dynamic compaction process was completed first, with the stone building-pad elevated 1 to 2 meters above existing grade. Once the building pads were constructed, the site was ready for the initial site work to begin.


The sequence of tasks that Rabb Construction tackled from day one included: • Initial site preparation • STM sewers to manage surface water • The building excavation, backfill and interior plumbing • Install the fire tank network – excavation, installation, backfill • Install the water main for water service and fire protection • The sanitary sewer system was established • On-site septic systems installed • Excavate and shape the storm water retention ponds

Bring in the heavy artillery

To perform the earthmoving on the project, Rabb used four large-size Caterpillar crawler hydraulic excavators, including

a Cat 321D equipped with the Topcon X-53i excavator system and two dozers, a New Holland DC80 and a Cat D6R high track dozer equipped with a Topcon 3D-MC2 systems. The contractor moved nearly 12 1/2 miles of material on the Dilawri Auto Mall site. The site is balanced, so it became a matter of re-locating the fill material as per the design grades. The grade needed to match into the existing grades at all of the property lines. “The Topcon systems helped us achieve grade on this challenging site and saved us a tremendous amount of time, which has helped us meet the tight deadlines,” Burrows-Rabb says. “The ROI on the technology was immediately obvious to us. We don’t feel a need to quantify what we already know, which is why we purchased a second unit as quickly as we did.” Help in selecting the GPS machine control systems and with training was provided by GeoShack Canada, based in Ottawa.

Burrows-Rabb says the operator training on the GPS controls, made a difference with the confidence for using the technology. The X-53i 3D control for excavators helped increase the Cat 321D’s versatility. Burrows-Rabb says the system’s 3D positioning capabilities helped the excavator for sewer installation for bedding grade, rough grade, and “just about every task – it is very useful.” “We knew about Topcon machine control for some time – however, it is an expensive investment,” BurrowsRabb says. “It became evident as we used it that it is completely worth the capital investment. Our efficiency has greatly improved. For example, with the

COMMERCIAL CONSTRUCTION & RENOVATION — JULY : AUGUST 2017

grading of the parking lot stone the D6R dozer with GPS control can be operated without foreman supervision. This frees up key personnel to complete other required work.” For Rabb Construction achieving the correct grade according to the provided design drawings and elevations was critical, since they were preparing the sub-grade for the asphalt paving and concrete contractors. All quantities of crushed stone, asphalt, and concrete materials to be supplied are based upon the Rabb-produced sub-grade elevation. The elevation needed to be accurate and match the city-approved grading and servicing plans.


Additionally, elevation accuracy on the auto mall site was critical for storm water management and for the septic systems. The project has progressed and the end is in sight. The Chrysler dealership and the Mazda dealership are now open for business. Nissan, the third dealership, is scheduled to open in June 2017. The building on the fourth stone building pad is currently in the design stage. “We were met with difficult site conditions and a very aggressive schedule," Burrows-Rabb says. "Certainly, having the machine control technology has helped us tremendously. Without it, we would be less efficient and it would have been more difficult to meet the timeline pressures. I’m proud that we’ve done good work here.” CCR Jeff Winke is a business and construction writer based in Milwaukee, Wis. He can be reached through jeff_winke@yahoo.com.

Because many HUD buildings – either rural or urban – are decades old, mechanical systems often are near or at the end of their service life. And in many instances, central air conditioning is non-existent. Both were the case at a property managed by the Pennsylvania affiliate of Volunteers of America, Plainsview Apartments in Wilkes Barre. Ken Rex Heating & Cooling has had the service contract for the 21-unit apartment complex for three years, and visits to the facility were frequent. The 23-year-old boiler system needed constant attention. Three oil boilers were used to provide hot water to an extensive fin-tube system, zoned individually for each unit. The system also provided domestic hot water. “We’ve been battling thermostat and zone valve issues, and the radiators are falling off the walls in places,” says Rex, a former Navy machinist who followed in

his father’s footsteps. Both Ken and his dad transitioned from military duty to the heating industry. The use of heating oil was a problem, too. Not only was the building consuming far too much fuel, but the 5,000-gallon, underground fuel tank was soon to require replacement. Plainsview also did not have a central air conditioning system. More than a year ago, management at Volunteers of America asked Rex about replacing the system. Given all the challenges, he knew that an in-kind replacement wasn’t likely to be the best option. As one of Pennsylvania’s earliest adopters of ductless technology – he’s installed ductless split systems since 1986 – Rex immediately considered retrofitting with multi-zone mini splits. And Volunteers of America Pennsylvania Housing Instructor Joe Eldred was thinking the same thing.

“Replacing the boilers would only have been part of a solution,” Eldred says. “That still would have left us with an old hydronic system, lack of individual control, an old oil tank and no AC.” At first, HUD wasn’t completely sold on using split-system technology for the retrofit, despite Eldred’s support,” Rex says. “Their architects were fully aware of ductless capability on the air conditioning side, but understandably, the climate in northern Pennsylvania gave them pause. They weren’t convinced that split systems could provide stand-alone performance for the worst part of our heating season.” That might have been the case a few years ago, but split-system manufacturers have recently introduced “ultra-low temp” models capable of providing space heat during bitter winter conditions. Rex was aware of this, and also knew how to provide the information needed to show that his split-system design would exceed expectations.

COMMERCIAL CONSTRUCTION & RENOVATION — JULY : AUGUST 2017

Rex, along with two other contractors, submitted bids to retrofit the building with ductless units. His comprehensive bid included replacement of the domestic hot water system once the old boilers were taken offline. He also supplied an energy use estimation and a plan to limit the aesthetic impact to the building exterior. “I’m a Fujitsu Elite dealer, based on the number of units we install each year,” Rex says. “About two years ago, Fujitsu released their low-temp models, which can run efficiently in heating mode down to outdoor temperatures as low as -15°F.” Rex selected 22 multi-zone Fujitsu Halcyon units to provide conditioning; one for each apartment, and one for the firstand second-story hallways. Each unit is connected to two, wall-hung indoor units. A 9,000 BTU air handler is used in the bedroom, while a 12,000 BTU model is used in the kitchen/living room area. Fujitsu’s online Contractor Toolbox was used to create an operation cost estimate,


Funding the retrofit

“We’ve been battling thermostat and zone valve issues, and the radiators are falling off the walls in places.” – Ken Rex, Owner, Ken Rex Heating & Cooling

providing a rough projection of energy use over the course of a year. At current energy rates, each apartment will cost roughly $65 annually to cool, and $385 to heat. Multiplied by 21.5 (because the hallway unit will run far less often than the apartments), the annual heating cost of the building will come to roughly $8,300. So that no stone was left unturned, APR Supply Company also conducted a pre-visit with Rex while he began assembling a design. “My local salesman at APR is Kevin Holmes. He worked out a payment plan with me, and as usual, supplied all product on time.

When Rex delivered all of the material along with his bid, he was able to show an accurate heat loss calculation, and hopes for a 60 to 70 percent reduction in energy-spend. After several months of consideration, the proposal was accepted by HUD, but funding for the project hadn’t yet been secured. “Before any HUD project starts, the managing body – in this case Volunteers of America Pennsylvania – needs to submit three bids, along with an explanation of why the bid that’s chosen was the best,” Eldred says. “Often, it’s not the cheapest bid, but rather the most thorough one. HUD then avails money for the project.” Every month, each HUD facility in the country places money into a fund specifically for repairs at that site. Eldred applied for Plainsview apartments to tap those reserves for the heating retrofit. Before funding was approved, the national Volunteers of America asset manager drove to the site to look at the proposed project. Once everyone was in agreement that a split system was the best option for Plainsview, funding was granted and the work began. In all, the retrofit took about a month. Extra care was used run the line-sets in a way that would minimize impact to the outside of the building. Refrigerant lines were paired up so that only one section of line-hide was needed per two condensers. Rex’s plan to install a new domestic hot water system is waiting for the natural gas utility to install a gas meter at the apartment building. When that happens, he plans to use a single, 199 BTUH tankless water heater paired with a 100-gallon storage tank. “The project was completed in the fall, and tenants have already been very pleased with the new system,” says Delores Emmett, property manager. “They’ll really love it next summer, when it’s time to turn the AC on. It worked out very well, and Rex did a wonderful job.” Going forward, Rex hopes that the installation at Plainsview will become a showcase for other HUD applications across the country. When planned and executed properly, there’s a way to save maintenance and operation costs at low-income housing projects while also increasing comfort levels. FC

shining The

Turner County School district to save millions in energy costs By Ray Jordan

T

urner County in Ashburn, Ga., is a scenic, rural community two hours south of Atlanta. Like so many other school districts across the country, Turner County was

dealing with serious infrastructure issues – primarily maintaining campus building standards in the face of financial challenges.

COMMERCIAL CONSTRUCTION & RENOVATION — JULY : AUGUST 2017


Knowing studies have shown a better a physical environment – including indoor comfort, air quality and lighting quality – impacts learning, productivity and achievement, Turner County district officials wanted to upgrade their facilities and improve energy efficiency without increasing their budget or raising taxes. Here were the facts – the majority of their buildings had old, inefficient lighting technology, inadequate control systems, high utility costs and high noise levels due to faulty HVAC systems. The school district was spending more than $600,000 per year in utility costs, maintenance costs and capital outlay. Looking for options, school board officials met with facility management provider ABM, which customized a solution through its Bundled Energy Solutions program. The program will help provide upgrades to all of the Turner County School buildings, including the high school, middle school, special services building, pre-school building, civic center, board office, elementary school and gymnasium. ABM’s Bundled Energy Solutions program drives costs out of a client’s operating budget, allowing savings to be reallocated to fund mission critical facility needs.

Bring on the savings

The program will help provide upgrades to all of the Turner County School buildings, including the high school, middle school, special services building, pre-school building, civic center, board office, elementary school and gymnasium.

The project was calculated to save the school district an estimated $4.8 million dollars in energy and operating costs over the course of 15 years. Yearly energy audits have shown savings each year since the program was implemented. In 2013 and 2014, actual savings exceeded the guaranteed savings by over 25 percent, including more than $150,000 in energy (utility) savings. The project began in late May 2010 and was completed in October 2010. Its scope of work included the following: • Equipment replacement and upgrades: Replacement of existing HVAC equipment; installation of new air conditioning equipment and wall mounted heat pumps; ductwork modifications; and electrical connections

Turner County School District will utilize the cost savings they received from this program to pay for most of the associated costs. ABM is guaranteeing the energy savings for the duration of the program. “We were looking to dramatically improve the HVAC and control infrastructure in all of our school district’s buildings and ABM came to us at the right time, with the right solutions," says Turner County Schools School Superintendent Ray Jordan. Jordan says the Bundled Energy Solutions program not only provides it with the needed maintenance and upgrades, but also

COMMERCIAL CONSTRUCTION & RENOVATION — JULY : AUGUST 2017

allows for much needed energy and operating savings. "We looked at other programs in the past, but ABM’s approach and experience with other school systems in the state proved to be the best fit for our system.” In fact, the level of positive change and support ABM brought to the Turner County School District encouraged Jordan to a career switch, so he could help other school districts struggling to maintain their operations budgets and students’ learning environment. In 2014, Jordan became an employee of ABM and now helps other schools in Georgia find financial solutions to their facility management through the Bundled Energy Solutions program. FC

rom years of coaching in all different industries – one of the most common issues I find that stops many people from wholeheartedly pursuing their endeavors is their own hesitation.

In this inaction, they are unable to take the first step. It’s like not boarding your train. You know the direction and destination you want to go and the destination you want to be at – but you do not get on the train, and therefore have not left the station. Hesitate: 1. to be reluctant or wait to act because of fear, indecision, or disinclination. 2. to have doubts; be unwilling. Hesitation, the state of uncertainty, causes indefinite delays – or worst – even kills many great ideas before they have a chance to be further explored and vetted. This energy of hesitation, like any other energy, attracts the like. So when there is doubt or trepidation – more types of these energies will be drawn to “confirm” that person’s current point of view. Negative mental chatter such as lack of resources, lack of time, lack of knowledge, lack of self worth, lack of feeling deserving, lack of confidence and other fear based concerns grow roots in hesitating minds.

At this entrepreneur conference media guru Donny Deutsch spoke. He was engaging and authentic with great stories on how he got his start in business. A simple exercise he shared with us was to simply ask yourself: “What if?” That’s it. Those two words are the most liberating and empowering words in the world. What if? Really, it’s just posing a question, a possibility – it’s plucking your one idea from the infinite universe of possibilities. As overly simple as it is – it is the most powerful question you can ask yourself. In my experience working with people, I find the majority of folks don’t necessarily have difficulty in accomplishing their goals – but really in just starting their goals. So if you can ask yourself “what if” and take just one step toward this – what happens next is Providence. From this first step, no matter how teeny tiny of a step it may appear to be – things begin to magically fall into place. Once the train gets rolling and catches momentum – people, things, situations just seem to come to their aid in support of their goals and before they know it – they’ve accomplished what they thought they couldn’t even start. So it’s not necessarily the difficulty in starting – but rather it’s the “not starting” that makes it so difficult. Get it? It’s really a mental game of healthy curiously that shrinks any daunting endeavor that appears to be insurmountable. The next time you have an issue or challenge that may appear overwhelming – just take the first step – board that train and watch as everything else follows once you leave the station. CCR

In my experience working with people, I find the majority of folks don’t necessarily have difficulty in accomplishing their goals – but really in just starting their goals. All these negative “lacks” continue to pile up until it literally buries a dream alive. There is a simple solution to eradicate these types of non-serving thoughts. I’m sure many people use this powerful tool in various areas of their lives. I first heard of it at a 2005 entrepreneur conference and since then I consciously try to keep it in practice; at the forefront of my mind.

Studio HBA retools brand standards for two new hotels By Tiffany Hayden

T

he opportunity rarely presents itself to design two adjacent hotel projects, much less in one of the most popular beachfront locations in the country. That was

the task given to Studio HBA when it was challenged to design complementary schemes for Courtyard by Marriott and Hampton Inn & Suites in Santa Monica.

As the projects were in its own backyard (Studio HBA is based just a few miles east), the team was able to provide a genuine infusion of locality in the design, forgoing typical brand standards. With the properties’ idyllic location just five blocks from the coast and Santa Monica Pier, both off of 5th and Colorado next to the new Expo Line stop, it developed a sand and beach theme that plays off one another in each hotel.

JULY : AUGUST 2017 — COMMERCIAL CONSTRUCTION & RENOVATION

REIMAGINING “The designs are inspired by the excitement of a road trip to the end of Route 66 and the experiences and elements of nature that are encountered along the way,” says David Dunphy, principal at Studio HBA. “In designing both hotels in conjunction with one another, we wanted guests to feel a sense of arrival at each – that their journey to the beach has ended and their time at the beach has begun," he says. "Both designs are a complete departure from the hotels’ typical brand standards as they are deeply rooted in California’s west coast culture, emitting a young, vibrant, yet relaxed energy.” Courtyard by Marriott represents the beach town’s bluffs and displays an earthy design, with an overarching theme of the earth’s tectonic plates prevalent throughout. As guests enter the hotel, edge-lit ceiling forms – created by Santa Monica-based Illuminate, a lighting consultancy under HBA – radiate from the front desk representing the earth’s plates, increasing in height where they culminate at a “cloud-like” light fixture and a full-height media wall providing a dramatic counterpoint. Oversized digital “Polaroids” are on display allowing for Route 66 travel imagery to be shown for a dynamic and localized art scene in the lobby area. A three-dimensional topographic map of Santa Monica serves as a focal piece behind the front desk with suspended wood planes floating above. Sustainable earth-toned stain was applied to the concrete slabs on the floor, rather than traditional imported floor tile, adding warmth and supporting Santa Monica’s environmentally-friendly mindset. Casual seating groups throughout the lobby standout with colorful area rugs and provide guests with various areas to either work or socialize, adding transitional spaces for the hotel to use in various capacities.

A new standard in lighting

Working hand-in-hand with Studio HBA, Illuminate created a new standard in lighting design for the Courtyard by Marriott brand. The vibrant lighting scheme and concealed LED fixtures reveal the building’s rugged architectural exterior, an earthy design inspired by Santa Monica’s renowned beaches.

COMMERCIAL CRAFTSMANSHIP PERFECTING OUR CRAFT TO BETTER YOUR BUSINESS CIRCLE NO. 66


REIMAGINING Elevator lobby walls are adorned with local art, silk screened onto glass featuring the iconic Santa Monica Route 66 “End of the Trail” sign and the Santa Monica Pier. A pool deck and terrace with glowing furniture and fire pits on the second floor overlooks the newly opened metro station and Pacific Ocean beyond. The contemporary guestrooms are tailored to their locale, with a full headboard wall that features a graphic image of the Santa Monica Pier in sunset-inspired hues, setting the mood for the famed California beach vibe. Other abstract pieces include a graphic depiction of 1950's bathing beauties in the room, and a full wall covering featuring a Southern California surfer in the otherwise crisp white bathroom. Top floor suites in the hotel are spacious and contemporary with a large balcony, generous outdoor seating, fireplaces and built-in bars overlooking the striking views of the Santa Monica Pier and beyond.

Located directly across the street from the Courtyard by Marriott sits Hampton Inn & Suites, designed to reflect the fluidity of water, representing the arrival at the Pacific Ocean. The lobby greets guests with sweeping edge-lit ceiling planes by Illuminate, rising up from a sculptural “driftwood” front desk that flows through the entire ground floor of the hotel, linking all the areas together in a fluid motion. Terrazzo flooring with recycled content is being used both for its sustainability and its ability to accommodate the sweeping curvilinear design of the flooring to mirror the ceiling above. The Terrazzo material allows subtle color gradations to reflect the layering effects of water as it collides with the beach. A series of carved stone surfboards and local historic surf photos just inside the entry pay homage to Santa Monica’s affinity

“In the same way that these properties are unique to their respective brands, the environment and culture of Santa Monica are like no other place in California or beyond.” – Nick Albert, Principal, Illuminate

for all things aquatic. Casual seating groups were designed to appear as an assemblage collected over time, with hammock chairs suspended from the ceiling next to rope light fixtures, alongside a woven wall of ship rope to add visual texture to the lobby. Illuminate collaborated with Studio HBA once again to develop a lighting installation that reflects the fluid movement and energy of Los Angeles. The linear LED lighting installation flows into the hotel’s main lobby, taking the form of waving ceiling coves inspired by the Southern California shoreline. High-efficiency LED and green lighting technologies were used throughout the property to enhance the design’s overall narrative of a modern, beach-inspired interior, while maintaining the highest level of energy conservation. “In the same way that these properties are unique to their respective brands, the environment and culture of Santa Monica are

like no other place in California or beyond, says Nick Albert, principal at Illuminate. “To fit that context, our lighting design had to speak to its locality not only by echoing the narrative of sand and sea inherent in the architecture and interiors, but also by eluding to the metropolitan vibrancy and activity of Santa Monica as a destination for people to live, work and play.” Similar to the Courtyard by Marriott, the elevator lobby walls are filled with graphic art, silk screened onto glass featuring colorful geometric patterns that culminate in an oversized image of a swimmer donning a bathing cap with three dimensional water drop patterns surrounding lights in the ceiling above. A deck on the second floor features bespoke furniture elements, a large 20-foot fire pit, communal sofa and pool-length neon art depicting a series of swimmers moving across the space. Illuminate provided exterior lighting design for day and nighttime use, to maximize the use of space at the hotel.

“The designs are inspired by the excitement of a road trip to the end of Route 66 and the experiences and elements of nature that are encountered along the way.” – David Dunphy, principal at Studio HBA.

The contemporary guestrooms feature an accent wall of wood wall coverings at the desk area that add warmth and texture to the room, along with contemporary art pieces placed on a shelf above the upholstered headboard. All case goods are custom with wood veneers in warm medium walnut tones and feature integral lighting elements that reflect the fluidity of design throughout. Wood and glass sliding doors into the bath area allow natural light and greater maneuvering space, giving a more open and spacious feeling. Bathrooms exhibit an overall light and airy tone with light floors and walls and a clean, crisp white bathroom palette accented by a subtle mosaic tile wall. Top floor suites in the hotel are spacious and contemporary featuring kitchenettes, expanded living areas, and large balconies with generous outdoor seating and views overlooking Santa Monica. CCR

Doing the right thing ...

B

ack on June 22 at our CCRP Los Angeles Reception at Warner Bros. Design Studio, one of our attendees stepped up to the plate and did the right thing. On his way to the event, as he approached the entrance to the parking structure to check in, he stopped at a red light just down the street.

As he looked over at the car next to him at the light, he noticed that the female passenger in the front seat was being viciously assaulted by the male driver. Dazed, but not in shock, he acted quickly and called 911 to report the incident – in real time. The 911 operator told him to stay on the phone while a local squad car was dispatched to the location. So, as

the light turned green, he had no choice but to follow the vehicle and maintain communication with the 911 operator. In rush hour traffic, the car in question could easily gotten lost in the LA traffic. Finally, after a few minutes which he said felt like a lifetime, the police found their location and stopped the attack. The driver, who was belligerent, had to be taken down forcefully by the police, who were able to subdue him. Following the arrest, the police began interviewing witnesses, including our attendee. One of the officers said, “You were lucky you called, as too many times domestic violence ends up much worse. You probably saved her life – nice job.” These days, being politically correct and doing the right thing is dwindling, as the fear of being persecuted for your opinions or actions can be ruined by the intolerant, even when you're on the right side of a situation. Thinking quickly in the moment could mean the difference between life and death. This attendee “got-r-done” without missing a beat. I am proud to know him. If you want to know who he is, send me an e-mail and will confirm this hero’s identity. He is someone of true chivalrous character and an asset to your next project. To all, enjoy the rest of the Summer and Fall ahead. If you haven’t marked your calendars for our Jan. 10-12, 2018 Summit in Daytona Beach, Fla., please do so. It will be here before you know it. As always, best of success in the future and keep the faith. CCR
