Current Builders’ Uptown Boca Project Offers Key Lessons for Construction Industry

POMANO BEACH, Fla. -- Current Builders completed its largest construction project commission on-time, during the pandemic thanks to the firm's excellent communication strategies, tech savvy, and smart contingency planning. Uptown Boca is the most ambitious development constructed in western Boca Raton in the last 20 years.

The 38-acre site features a mixed-use program of approximately 156,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space along with 456 luxury rental units and two parking garages. The project is transformational for Palm Beach County and the pressure to meet the deadlines, despite the global issues, created a tremendous opportunity for the general contractor to test and enhance their skill set.

"Building a project of this magnitude during the pandemic provided some very valuable lessons for our team, ones we will be mindful of on all projects moving forward," said Brett Schreiber, Current Builders' Senior Project Superintendent and Partner, who managed both the retail and residential construction for Uptown Boca.

For Schreiber, enhanced communication was the key element for making this a successful project.

"There were a lot of curveballs thrown at us during this build," he explained, "The pandemic forced changes to the tenant mix and therefore to the structure. Often times, design and construction were happening simultaneously, with no room for error."

To keep track of all these major updates, the team relied on the technical prowess of Procore's construction management software to enhance efficiency. But also, elevated the art of transparent conversation and relationship building, even when it had to be done via Zoom.

"I cannot underestimate the importance of having excellent communication channels with the client/developer," he said. "No one wants to be blindsided, so when issues arose, we made sure the client understood the obstacles and was fully apprised of the plan to get the project back on track."

Often times, longer hours, nights and weekends were required to make that happen. For Schreiber, the relationships with the subcontractors were another critical factor.

"The subs can make or break your project," he continued. "And while we always treat our teams with respect and dignity, the pandemic heightened our awareness of using added motivation only when truly necessary. While the project managers always feel constant pressure, it is important to reserve the push for essential crunch times."

Dialogue with the inspectors was also a paramount reason for this massive project's success.

"Establishing a trusting relationship with the inspectors helped us complete this project on time," he explained. "We worked very closely with the inspectors, addressing issues immediately and keeping them in the loop at all times as to our progress. We also reached out to them to learn what to expect and what was going to be required to pass. Thanks to this strong level of confidence in our execution and follow through, the county was incredibly helpful in having us meet all the major inspection hurdles."

The pandemic also forced Current Builders to set up contingency plans in case the county's inspection department shut down, establish extensive COVID-19 safety protocols and make adjustments in staging and logistics due to the slow down of the supply chain.

"The entire Current Builders team is very proud of Uptown Boca," continued Schreiber. "Taking on the firm's biggest project, one that was in the media's spotlight, during the height of COVID-19, was a test of our abilities and management. Seeing the recognition and popularity this development is achieving now is very rewarding."

Current Builders is an award-winning general contractor, celebrating five decades of construction success with average annual revenues of $250 Million. Current Builders specializes in multi-family residential projects, office/warehouse buildings, commercial distribution facilities, parking garages, interior build-outs, interior and exterior renovations, all included as turnkey projects inclusive of the construction of the buildings and related site work.

The Uptown Boca project is Current Builders third commission with the development team including Rosemurgy Properties and Giles Capital Group in partnership with Wheellock Street Capital. The retail development component was led by the seasoned retail/commercial team at Schmier Property Group.

Capitol Fence Shares 5 Tips for Selecting Automatic Gates

AUSTIN, Texas -- Capitol Fence in Austin, Texas recognizes a rising trend of the installation of automated driveway gates for residences in the local area. Two significant factors compel residents to choose a high-quality automatic gate for their home. Firstly, the security advantage and, secondly, automated gates increase the home value. Besides installing an automated gate, the real question is how to find the perfect one?

The expert staff at Capitol Fence, a leading automatic gate company in Austin, provides brand name automatic gates, installation, and repair services. We are well equipped and experienced in dealing with all kinds of automated gates. Shop for the best and most suitable automated driveway gates available in Austin.

The expert staff at Capitol Fence put together practical tips that will help customers with finding the perfect style of automated driveway gate for Austin residences:

1. Identify the right kind of automated gate

The fundamental step is to choose the style of automated driveway gate. Some of the types generally found on the market are:

* Sliding gates

* Cantilever gates

* Telescopic gates

* Single swing gates

* Double Swing Gates

The characteristics of each type may vary. However, the installation depends on the dimensions and landscape of a house. This is where Capitol Fence can help with a free quote and help with which automated gate to choose.

2. Options for gate openers and features

The most popular driveway gates in Austin, the swing or sliding type, are accessible through a password or fingerprint system. Some advanced technologies include face and retinal scans. An automated gate must be installed by trained technicians. The trained staff at Capitol Fence are UL 325 certified.

Here are some elements that make an automated gate the right choice:

* Convenient and secure keypad

* High-quality intercom

* Impeccable remote-control system

* A security alarm system

* Reversing sensors to avoid accidents

In case of any installation and quality queries, the support staff at Capital Fence are the right people to contact.

3. Get a quote for space and angle for an automated gate

When you are going for a swing gate, many factors need consideration. Before selecting the size and style of the automated gate, assess the area and design of the front entrance. A sliding automated gate needs space between gates to function. However, a gate with a swing arm design requires a different set up and mechanism to work.

Another element to consider is the angle at which the door must open. Capitol Fence checks to make sure there is ample space for the door to open at the gate's angle design. While installing an automated gate, the professional team from Capitol Fence ensures that the driveway will accommodate the automated gate.

4. Choose the right material

Weather conditions and lifestyle trends are both essential factors in the selection of an automated driveway gate. Also, the security requirements may vary in different places, and the material choice alters accordingly. Generally, driveway gates are made of steel, wrought iron, wood, aluminum, and glass. A combination of two or more materials can also be a great choice aesthetically.

Capitol Fence has been in the picture for decades and specializes in delivering and installing a wide variety of fences and gates. We have an excellent reputation in the areas of expertise, efficiency, reliability, and customer support.

Current Builders Celebrates Construction Safety Week with Focus on Holistic Health for Workers

POMPANO BEACH, Fla. -- Current Builders (www.currentbuilders.com) is proud to be part of the nationwide celebration of Construction Safety Week taking place May 3-7, 2021. This year's theme, Be Present, Be Focused, Be Safe targets the holistic health of workers in the industry. As one of the leading construction firms in Florida, Current Builders has a week of educational programming scheduled for its employees and will also be hosting students from the University of Miami chapter of the South Florida Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) for a tour of one of Current Builders' newest projects, Platform 3750 in Coconut Grove.

"This year's theme is an essential one," stated Current Builders' CEO and President, Michael C. Taylor. "After enduring all the stresses of 2020, it is critical that our industry focuses on the holistic health of our workers. At Current Builders, our safety training goes beyond the use of proper protective gear and explores total well-being, by discussing topics including mental health, depression, dependency, and tiredness. This focus on mental awareness, in addition to the physical protection protocols, will help our workers develop a deeper understanding of what it means to be truly safe."

Deborah Hampton Current Builders' Risk and Safety Director has created a series of daily toolbox talks addressing a variety of topics to open a dialogue among workers on how they can better take care of themselves and each other. In addition, Hampton offers fun competitions for workers that provide prizes to those who can spot the hazards on the daily safety boards. Also included in this year's Safety Week will be demonstrations by Milwaukee Tools and the student tour for UM AGC members to view real-world working conditions at Platform 3750, a mixed-use project in Coconut Grove on Friday, May 7.

"It is critical for all workers, both seasoned and novices, to fully understand the role mental awareness plays in keeping the team safe. Distractions can rob a worker of their focus, which can cause serious and even deadly accidents," said Hampton. "It is essential that workers look out for each other and learn to recognize the signs of someone who may be struggling. Safety Week is a reminder to all our workers that there are resources available to help them be present and focused."

Hampton has developed numerous safety protocols, both physical and mental for the team, and one of the favorite exercises of employees is the morning Stretch and Flex program. This activity wakes everyone one up and get them focused on the coming tasks.

"Nothing is more important than our team's safety," continued Taylor. "At Current Builders, we are very proud of the programs our company has implemented and how diligent our workers are with their follow-through. This national celebration is a wonderful opportunity for us to reinforce the lessons learned and recommit to keeping safety, both physical and mental, our number one priority."

The Return of Broadway: Broadway Barter is Here to Make Your Post COVID-19 Reopening a Success!

BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Broadway is back in 2021! Broadway Barter, celebrating 25 years of trading media for producer empty seats, announced that it is giving its support to Broadway by offering all theaters the opportunity to prepare, if not already done, with the state-of-the-art air filtration upgrade using Ultra Violet protection.

For more information on COVID-19 and UV protection, visit HealthLine and NPR. After all, it's the comfort and safety for all theatergoers that must be the priority. When they see the certification posted at each entrance and exit at our participating theaters, they will know this theater had their safety first.

In a press conference, NYC mayor Bill de Blasio said that he expects Broadway and off-Broadway shows to reopen by September and that he plans to facilitate that target date. Every theater must meet the safety requirements, per de Blasio's office, which will be inspecting them all prior to reopening. "Broadway needs to come back, and we will move heaven and Earth to bring Broadway back," he said. The dates and the percentage of audience attendance will be announced officially by The Broadway League shortly once more decisions are made by de Blasio in the upcoming months.

Broadway Barter also recognizes the affects COVID-19 has had across many industries; especially health care workers and youth in the arts. Broadway Barter is pledging 5% of all sales to give back to local health care workers and underserved children in the arts by providing them tickets to Broadway shows. Everyone should be able to enjoy the joys of Broadway and they are proud to be able to serve the community by providing that opportunity.

If you'd like to schedule a complimentary site inspection with your proposal, contact Broadway Barter and cover 1/2 the cost by bartering empty seats. Broadway Barter is also promoting participating shows on major radio, TV news, and in its new, upcoming Broadway section in Hemispheres Magazine on all

United Airlines flights. Over 4 million travelers will have the chance to see what's coming on Broadway. June, July, August, and September sponsorships are available for both TV spots and Hemispheres placement, with only one show featured each month on the news.

Please go to the Broadway Barter website to learn more about what they can do for your re-opening and to view the safety and media kit. If you wish to participate or get more information, call today at +1-844-922-3959.

About Broadway Barter:

Formed in 1996, Broadway Barter has developed a successful formula of filling unsold theater seats for increased revenue to the producers and at the same time generating media exposure. A theater seat has no value once a show's over. 80-90% of an average show is sold. Broadway Barter turns that remaining 10-20% of unused seats into valuable advertising exposure.

Broadway Barter's program is based on combining a Trade/Cash blend that delivers your target audience. Its unique and creative formula has made it one of the most competitive media sources in the market today.

Primary Business:

* Media Promotion and Media Placement for Broadway Shows

* Off-Broadway Shows

* Lincoln Center Productions

* Out-of-Town Performances (Shows on the Road)

When Walt Disney wanted to promote their musical, "Beauty & the Beast," they turned to barter as a means to offset a good deal of advertising expenses. They used a blend of show tickets and cash to achieve their goal. Previously unsold tickets, which were worthless if not filled, were used to generate print ads in inflight magazines, thus optimizing revenue and performance attendance.

Green Janitorial Innovations Spur New Tech Company Focused on Occupant Health

DES MOINES, Iowa -- With over eight years in providing green, sustainable, microbial protection to businesses, schools, and medical facilities throughout the Midwest, The Heritage Group of Des Moines, IA launched a new tech company, SPMC, LLC in the summer of 2020 to be led by SPMC President John Bergman and SPMC Technical Director Joe Johnson.

More than vacuuming, cleaning, and dusting, Heritage Building Maintenance, the custodial and building management arm of The Heritage Group, set themselves apart with their commitment to the integration of WELL building best practices and use of science-based research and technology. Science-Proven Microbial Control® was born out of their objective of cleaning for health. This not only helped customers maintain the wellness of their buildings but also helped protect those who occupy them.

"Disinfecting has always been a thorn in the side of a sustainable green cleaning program," said Johnson. "Over the last eight years we've worked hard to develop Science-Proven Microbial Control® into a real, solutions-based program."

In the spring of 2020, when businesses across the nation were suddenly challenged with crisis-level health and operational obstacles, Heritage's years of experience in microbial control and innovation turned itself into a real-world tested, science-based process that facilitated the founding of SPMC, LLC - the tech company supported by their trademarked program.

From the initial announcements of pandemic spread and the challenges that faced building management, the SPMC, LLC team saw increased interest from Building Services and Commercial Real Estate Management Companies fostering continuous growth and licensing opportunities throughout the year.

While the timing for a start-up could have been challenging for some, SPMC has continued to grow their family of licensees - all while supporting their current customer list including Paramount Building Solutions in the Minneapolis/St. Paul market, Specialty Maintenance Service out of Omaha, as well as Heritage Building Maintenance in Des Moines. SPMC also continues to educate their business clients and associates on the benefits of Science-Proven Microbial Control®, WELL building best practices, and the use of science and data that supplement traditional cleaning and building maintenance services.

"This takes janitorial services beyond 'straightening up'," says Greg Theroux, Founder and CEO of Heritage Building Maintenance and SPMC, LLC. "While we're in the cleaning business, really, our job is to make our customers' workspaces healthier."

As the Heritage Building Maintenance team continues to provide healthy solutions in custodial and building maintenance services, they and others will become licensees through SPMC, LLC to provide a technologically advanced program that includes a multi-step process, and a scientifically-tested, EPA registered, antimicrobial surface protectant. These treatments are applied through their Test - Treat - Track™ process, creating a superior, data-based cleaning and protection protocol.

John Bergman, who comes from decades of commercial and corporate real estate management, joined the leadership team at SPMC, LLC in January of this year. Together with Technical Director, Joe Johnson, SPMC will continue to innovate and grow its offerings.

"This is so far beyond cleaning, we can't consider ourselves anything less than a tech company," said Bergman. "The data used to support our licensees is groundbreaking."

Bergman went on to explain that through their Science-Proven Microbial Control® program, licensees use testing to set a baseline of cleanliness - at a microbial level - within a building. This establishes a scientifically trackable, data-based health and wellness microbial control protocol for each and every space they serve, providing long lasting protection beyond cleaning and focusing on occupant health and safety.

"Considering our current health-conscious corporate culture," said Bergman. "The availability of this technology sets a new standard for health in the built environment. By providing long-lasting microbial control we re-set the need for hyper disinfecting. This not only provides health and wellness to buildings and occupants, but focuses on sustainability and green best practices."

SPMC, LLC is located in Des Moines, Iowa and currently serves a growing list of licensees and partner companies throughout the Midwest.

If you have questions or would like more information on their Science-Proven Microbial Control® program or licensee opportunities from SPMC, LLC, you can contact John Bergman, SPMC, LLC President at john@spmcglobal.com or go to their Web site at https://spmcglobal.com/.

Tristate UV Sanitizing launches state-of-the-art ultraviolet sanitizing service that kills COVID-19 and the coronavirus mutations, restoring customer safety and profits to tri-state businesses

NANUET, N.Y. -- Tristate UV Sanitizing, a disinfection-as-a-service (DaaS) company, is offering free demos for a limited time of its hospital-grade Ultraviolet disinfection to tri-state area businesses. Tristate UV's goal is to help restore customer confidence and local business profits by offering a new standard of medical-grade hygiene that enhances health and safety. Tristate offers disinfection-as-a service at affordable rates and uses UVC light-sensitive markers that scientifically validate to customers that the Tristate disinfected areas of their business are COVID-free.

Tristate is a Dimer authorized dealer that sells the UVHammer mobile cart to corporations, professional cleaning services, and facility management companies.

Tristate UV Sanitizing differentiates its service from traditional chemical cleaning services with the use of the Dimer UVHammer, a revolutionary mobile UV solution that emits potent germicidal light that is lab certified to disinfect pathogens, germs, and the COVID-19 family viruses, including the more virulent UK COVID-19 mutation.

The UV Hammer simultaneously disinfects both airborne pathogens and contaminated high-touch surfaces. The machine utilizes the same patented technology as Dimer's award-winning GermFalcon solution - the germ-killing UV device for aircraft cabins that has since been brought to market globally by Honeywell and recognized as one of TIME's Best Inventions of 2020.

Tristate UV Sanitizing can disinfect a 1,500 sqft business in less than 7 minutes, and a 3,000 sqft space in less than 15 minutes. The company doesn't use any wet chemicals that emit harmful toxic fumes and residues, or chemical fogging that requires the closing of your business. Tristate UV's targeted process rapidly sanitizes any space without requiring businesses to close - ensuring the highest degree of health and safety for customers and staff, while maximizing the business's profit potential.

Tristate UV Sanitizing launches state-of-the-art ultraviolet sanitizing service that kills COVID-19 and the coronavirus mutations, restoring customer safety and profits to tri-state businesses

NANUET, N.Y. -- Tristate UV Sanitizing, a disinfection-as-a-service (DaaS) company, is offering free demos for a limited time of its hospital-grade Ultraviolet disinfection to tri-state area businesses. Tristate UV's goal is to help restore customer confidence and local business profits by offering a new standard of medical-grade hygiene that enhances health and safety. Tristate offers disinfection-as-a service at affordable rates and uses UVC light-sensitive markers that scientifically validate to customers that the Tristate disinfected areas of their business are COVID-free.

Tristate is a Dimer authorized dealer that sells the UVHammer mobile cart to corporations, professional cleaning services, and facility management companies.

Tristate UV Sanitizing differentiates its service from traditional chemical cleaning services with the use of the Dimer UVHammer, a revolutionary mobile UV solution that emits potent germicidal light that is lab certified to disinfect pathogens, germs, and the COVID-19 family viruses, including the more virulent UK COVID-19 mutation.

The UV Hammer simultaneously disinfects both airborne pathogens and contaminated high-touch surfaces. The machine utilizes the same patented technology as Dimer's award-winning GermFalcon solution - the germ-killing UV device for aircraft cabins that has since been brought to market globally by Honeywell and recognized as one of TIME's Best Inventions of 2020.

Tristate UV Sanitizing can disinfect a 1,500 sqft business in less than 7 minutes, and a 3,000 sqft space in less than 15 minutes. The company doesn't use any wet chemicals that emit harmful toxic fumes and residues, or chemical fogging that requires the closing of your business. Tristate UV's targeted process rapidly sanitizes any space without requiring businesses to close - ensuring the highest degree of health and safety for customers and staff, while maximizing the business's profit potential.

"We are thrilled to offer this state-of-the-art sanitation service that enhances customer and business health across the tri-state area.
