YEAR IN REVIEW


2016 Q4 SPECIAL EDITION OF

the

Flywheel

FROM GEORGE A LOOK BACK AT 2016

2016 is essentially complete. Amazing! To you “old timers” doesn’t it seem that Y2K was not too long ago and here we are 17 years later? It’s one of the paradox’s in life. The older you get, the faster time “seems” to travel. I write to you sitting here in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba where we have repeated a pattern that has become common at RQ. It first happened at our home base, Camp Pendleton/San Diego. Then at Camp Lejeune, NC. It has now repeated itself at GTMO and the pacific North West. What is that pattern and what does it signify? The pattern goes back to our Mission Statement. We exist to provide the best built environment to our customers while being the first choice of all stakeholders. One of the cornerstones of RQ has been our intense desire to be considered the best outstanding contractor they work with and thus their first choice for their next project. I believe we are pretty close to that in the greater San Diego region. But then, as we expanded to Virginia/N. Carolina, that same result came about because we would not compromise our standards to the marketplace. The same result has come about in the Pacific NW where our customers are quite emphatic that we stand out. And Gitmo is no different, and in fact stands out even more because most of our tough competition has no desire to work here. Team members, I am so proud that we are succeeding and growing doing things the RQ way. That pride is in all of you that make things happen, every single one of you. 2016 has been a good year. I can not wait for 2017’s challenges and opportunities. The flywheel is turning and accelerating. I thank you. And, if I can speak for all the other stakeholders in what we do, I think I can represent them and say a big “Thank You!”

George H. Rogers, III, CEO RQ Construction, LLC

HOME AND HOMER We have talked about flywheels and 20-mile marching in the past in relation to our business, but I’d like to meditate on actual flywheels a bit more in thinking about our future. Flywheels are wheels that start off moving slow and pick up speed once they get going. They get going faster and faster. But faster for what? The real purpose of flywheels is positive energy and positive energy transfer. They serve as, or like, engines or motors. So if RQ’s flywheel is really an engine producing greater power as it spins faster, where is that engine taking us and why does it need to be continuously juiced up? Being in the Christmas season, I can’t help but think about home and the nature of home. Growing up I moved several times, sometimes with my parents and several more times since going off to college and then life beyond. What I recognized when my folks moved is that their new home always felt like home. The square footage and architecture of the house itself were always different, but it was filled with all the same family pictures, furniture and knick-knacks that made them all feel like home…not to mention family members were the same. I felt the same way when I visited my brother’s dorm room for the first time. It felt like Bryan. And when my sister got married, her house felt like Kelly. The saying goes, “Home is where you hang your hat.” I would say that’s right if you mean “your hat” being your distinct personality or that of your family. RQ has incredibly spread out the past several years. But in every new location, it feels like RQ. There are green diamonds, sign-in templates, and the same spreadsheets and software applications open on computers in Washington, North Carolina and GTMO. Jobsite banners, swag, and binders on shelves look a lot the same in Virginia and California. But more than that, our own people identify that it is the similar, exceptional quality of our people and their character that is the most striking similarity of each of our locations. And our Client seems to recognize the same, meaning our reputation has spread as expressed in glowing evals, ribbon-cutting ceremony compliments, and passerby comments that make you proud.

“Some people spend all day indoors. This is MY office, and it’s a beautiful thing.” Don Rogers, CHST S.V.P., CHIEF SAFETY OFFICER

As we look to the future and where our 20-mile marching is taking us, it is easy to get caught up in the excitement of destinations. But what we should appreciate is that our future destinations, like our past achievements, will always feel like home because it is us going there. Whether we hang pictures on the wall including projects in new states or a part of new markets, they are going to be filled with RQ faces wearing RQ hard hats that made them happen. If we achieve greater and greater volume of the DoD’s build needs, it’ll be completed by folks that had to answer questions about high school years before getting hired on and share the same motivation traits as those that came before us and are running with us right now. I love home. As an English major, I appreciate the fact that “home” is a significant literary theme since forever, Homer himself attesting to that. Thank you all for making RQ such a great home to be a part of from sea to shining sea. I look forward to all that the future holds for us, and I look forward to it entirely because it involves “us.” Have a Merry Christmas and we’ll all have a busy New Year! Having raced through this one, I already can’t wait to see next year’s book of the 2017 dragons we slayed and lands we conquered - together. Eric Taylor VP Of Operations
