But signs seem to be pointing toward recovery. On Wednesday, October 14, the Dow hit 10,000 for the first time since October It s not a sure indicator of funds being redistributed, but what is. It s nothing the construction and development industry hasn t weathered before, because in this industry hibernation is not as option. While the stock market takes its tentative steps, hems and hahs, ebbs and flows, the architects, fabricators and contractors diversify; they navigate the codes and economic conditions that can change a company s means of survival from one job to the next. Recognizing that tough conditions lead to tougher competitors, US Developers Journal is proud to spotlight companies that have stepped up to the shovel-ready projects, positioned for the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, and found means to diversify in ways that rely on nothing but sheer initiative and ingenuity. A firm such as Becco Contractors in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is so diverse in what we do that we can stay within a 60-mile radius of Tulsa and keep more than busy, says Kyle Wilson, chief estimator. And it s true; the 20-year-old civil construction company handles paving to excavation, employs hundreds, does bridges to Interstate work, even purchased an asphalt plant to assure it would be self-sufficient and highly efficient in economic times of need. Equally diverse, though in other sectors, is Sullivan & Cozart of Louisville, Kentucky. The company has constructed many types of projects in the commercial, industrial, educational facilities, health care, multi-housing and sports facilities industries since its founding in the 1930s. The company still does estimating by hand, to guarantee the most honest and accurate accounts, such as a project expanding and modernizing aspects of historic Churchill Downs. Berlin Steel Construction Company of Kensington, Connecticut, has roots dating to the American industrial revolution in Surviving a recession of two in its time, the company continues to supply such sectors as building steel and precast parking structures, industrial applications, fasttrack construction and partnering. Design-build services, taking full advantage of BIM software, has allowed for more LEED projects. And a custom-designed safety program plus employee-ownership assures projects continue being completed for the good of both clients and company. Steel is a very active industry, thanks definitely in part to the actions of the AISC, an association with members such as SteelWorks of the Carolinas and Trinity Steel Fabricators. One is in South Carolina, and one is in Texas. But both take pride in strict quality assurance programs, providing laborers with plenty of training, and always looking for challenging new industries to explore. Companies are certainly in a frenzy to look for new work, but that doesn t stop them from giving, as well. For example, Woodhaven Homes of Little Rock, Arkansas was involved in an episode of ABC s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, and helped quickly put together a new, specially customized home for a family surviving leukemia. It was a highly meaningful project that had a lot more than just drywall and piping go in to it. It s in the balance of tradition and modernization, of heart and body that the construction and development industry flourishes. And it s all captured in these pages. ~US Developers Journal 3

7 Spotlight There When You Need Us AFTERDISASTER Produced by Victor Martins & Written by Mark Fitzgerald Disasters are often unpredictable. A pipe bursts and water flows throughout a building. A storm hits and floods a church. Lightning strikes and sends a tree through a home. A fire rages out of control and devastates a neighborhood. It can happen when least expected. Mitigating and minimizing damage in the immediate aftermath is critical. That s where AFTERDISASTER comes in. Based in Greensboro, N.C., the company is an independently owned and operated mitigation and restoration contractor that was founded in Its 45 employees are ready to respond to disasters around the clock 365 days a year. It s part of the job description, says President Lee King. We have to be ready to go day or night. The company is an unlimited licensed general contractor in seven states, including North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Florida, Tennessee and Louisiana. In addition to its corporate headquarters in Greensboro, it has offices in Raleigh and Charlotte. It also has a Large Loss Division with an experienced disaster response team serving the eastern U.S. and the Caribbean. Large loss would usually include site specific losses, such as a large commercial fire of a high-rise building, explains King. It could also include jobs that are a result of large regional or national weather patterns; major damage caused by hurricanes, tornadoes or widespread flooding. Still, even while responding to national disasters, we must maintain intense focus on our local residential and commercial customers in the local marketplaces. One of the main things the company emphasizes to all of its customers, both residential and commercial, is that they all should have disaster preparedness plans. The company s tagline is Before the disaster, think AFTERDISASTER, because if property owners would take a little amount of time to prepare the payoff is huge in the event of a property damage. In the case of a flood, AFTERDISASTER s most immediate and pressing task is to remove the water as quickly and efficiently as possible. Removing odors and yielding a clean indoor environment are essential steps to preventing mold. Having the right equipment to facilitate the process is half the battle, according to King. We maintain an equipment inventory of several thousand pieces, which is critical to being able to respond to our customers emergency needs. You ve got to have the right tools and lots of them to be able to correctly respond to disasters, he says. Good People AFTERDISASTER not only pursues stringent hiring practices via criminal background checks and random drug tests, but also targets the best and the brightest from the construction industry. You need to know how buildings are put together, adds King, who began his career building apartments and speculative homes. You need to know how to appropriately address water, odor, fire, smoke, and mold issues. The company employs a full-time trainer and a safety manager who instruct staff on using the various products AFTERDISASTER brings to the job site. Most of our products are water-based, says King. They re fairly easy to use, but we have our safety manager prepare the mixtures to ensure correct use of these cleaning agents. Most are green products, detergent-based applications with a citrus addition. The projects we complete must not only be clean, but they must smell clean when we re finished. 67

8 Spotlight Trainees practice on proprietary simulators developed in house, with various restorative applications. The instruction has proven to be particularly valuable in ensuring readiness for emergency response. We pour tremendous amounts of water into these simulators and then train new employees to dry those components, says King. Training is very critical since we don t want to send anyone into a disaster unprepared. After large and regional catastrophes much of the work includes water extraction, drying and dehumidification, equipment set up, content inventory and cleaning, electronics restoration, structural cleaning and contents protection. Our full-time employees practically do it all, says King. They do drywall repair and other repairs, interior trim work as well as painting and flooring repairs. Typically they don t spend a full day doing any one thing, but instead are multifaceted. Strong Supply Base Besides its employees, King attributes AFTERDISASTER s success to its suppliers and partners. They re critical and we rely on them substantially, he says. Because we re dealing with emergency situations locally, out of town, and out of state, we need help getting basic supplies like food, water and fuel. On top of that, we often need to ship in supplies when the roads are closed and access is very difficult. Asked what sets the company apart, King cites the fundamentals: Visit our offices and look at our employees and compare us to competition. We are going to give you a quicker response and a fairer price and you re going to have the highest level of customer satisfaction. AFTERDISASTER was the recipient of a national award recently. The company was rated the No. 1 restoration contractor in the entire Mid-Atlantic region of the U.S. by Crawford Contractor Connection, a third party administrator of property claims. This award was based on many factors, including speed of response, customer service, accuracy of documentation, timeliness of invoicing and fair pricing. Additionally, AFTERDISASTER was ranked in the top 17 contractors nationally, out of over 3,000 companies. It all comes back to people and know-how. AFTERDISASTER is now licensing the use of its name and operating systems to select, qualified investors and owner-operators. Judging from its track record and aspirations for expansion, AFTERDISASTER is well on its way to continuing to lead the pack. 68 US Developers Journal Fall Edition II 2009
