MEET DALE MURPHY

JULY 21—BOOTH #340

SECURE YOUR JOBSITE IN MINUTES

By David Studdert, Chief Business Development Officer

LVT (LiveView Technologies) provides the

ultimate security for your construction site.

Our mobile units are completely wireless and

combine top-end cameras with cutting-edge

cloud technology so they can literally go

anywhere no matter how remote.

Each unit is equipped with solar panels and our proprietary

edge controller. These two features ensure that they don’t need

hardwired power or communication links. Instead, they can be

deployed anywhere on your jobsite and installed in 30 minutes

or less. And they can be easily moved so when you need a new

sightline or are ready to take the unit to the next job, it only

takes a few minutes.

The best part is our units are proven to deter crime on

construction sites—everything from loitering and trespassing

to theft and vandalism. Because we use deterrence-based

methods, many criminals see the unit and leave before

any harm is done. However, when looks aren’t enough, LVT

Units have a two-way speaker, lights, and more to help you

intervene before damage is done. In fact, you can receive

intruder alerts on your mobile device and log in to the live

feed. From there you can watch and make sure the intruders

leave, talk to them through the speaker, and call local law

enforcement if their illegal activity continues.

LVT Units can also function as a site management tool. With

24/7 live views of your site, you can know exactly when a

delivery was made, if workers are billing for the correct number

of hours, or even if conditions are too severe to continue the

project that day—all without physically being at your site.

See how LVT can make your construction site

safer and more secure at lvt.com.

Material And Pricing Clarity: 3 Steps Every Homebuilder And Remodeler

Owner Can Implement To Restore Business F.I.T.ness In A World Of Chaos

Wednesday, July 20 | 11:15 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. | Keynote Area

Windows that used to take 7 days in 2020 now take 7 months…maybe. Plywood that costs $11 now demands over $70!

Volatility is the new certainty, and contractors must create the discipline to develop a different level of fitness in their

business in order to navigate these new waters, with a more robust ship.

This life-changing and engaging 45 minute talk won’t waste your time in empty market predictions, but instead will provide you the tools to

build a better business that allows you to navigate a new business reality.

You will be equipped to beat chaos with predictability, and to build a business that weathers volatile changes, and makes time for what matters

most.

Target Audience: Homebuilders, Remodelers, Contractors

Recruiting And Hiring: The 4 Systems Every Homebuilder And Remodeler Owner Needs To

Build The Right People That Builds The Right Business

Thursday, July 21 | 11:15 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. | Keynote Area

People, people, people! How do we find the right people to hire? How do we find ANY people to hire?

The Boomers retired early, and the emerging generations are much more selective in the work they choose. How can you find the right people,

recruit them the right way, share the right vision, and then onboard them the right way that aligns with the right mission?

This life-changing and engaging 45 minute talk pulls from our work with hundreds of contractor owners that led to our proprietary and proven

roadmap.

This roadmap will equip you to beat chaos with predictability, and to build the team that will build the business to make time for what matters

most.

Target Audience: Homebuilders, Remodelers, Contractors

Tom Woodcock

President | Seal the Deal

Selling Thru a Tough Economy

Wednesday, July 20 | 1:15 p.m. - 2:15 p.m. | Keynote Area

We’re seeing volatile pricing formats, supply chain interruption and rising interest rates. This usually ends in tough

economic conditions, resulting in construction industry challenges. Knowing the best way to stay ahead of these changes

and keep your business moving forward is difficult. We’ll look at the methods successful contractors use to weather

shifting economic conditions. We’ll cover:

Sponsored by 1. Increasing your portion of the market pie

2. Getting a competitive advantage

3. Managing customer expectations

4. Structuring your sales effort

5. How to balance sales and marketing efforts

You’ll come away from this session with a better understanding of what it will take to grow in both revenue and

profitability in these times. Sales is the most important aspect of your business. Everything else simply follows that lead.

Target Audience: Architects, General Contractors, Subcontractors, Builders & Remodelers

Networking & Association Use

Thursday, July 21 | 1:15 p.m. - 2:15 p.m. | Keynote Area

Many contractors never join relevant associations that can produce revenue for them. Even worse they spend the dues money and don’t

maximize the effectiveness of the association. We will layout how to determine what associations to join, how to work them and get business

from your involvement. The single greatest way to find grouped customers and network contacts is right in your backyard association!

Work them to the fullest and you’ll never make a cold call again!

Target Audience: Architects, General Contractors, Subcontractors, Builders & Remodelers

6 Common Traits of a Healthy Project: Using AI to Determine Project Health

9:30 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. | Room 111

Eric Crawford

Director of Sales for North America | FONN

A project manager and his customer want a healthy project. However, few projects are delivered on time and on budget.

Traditional construction processes and workflows can provide vital information if it is collected and made accessible to

workers in a timely manner. Accurate and real-time information captured on project sites is crucial for performing work

correctly the first time--reducing re-work and saving you money.

Fonn investigated this challenge and started working on a way to fix it. In this session, we’ll review how AI enables users

to track, monitor, and predict Project Health using technology gathered from our customers. This session investigates how

Project Health is understood in the construction industry and how it is reflected in 4 key areas: Satisfaction, Safety, Quality,

and Cost. It also identifies the 6 common traits of a healthy project. Attendees to this session will be given a complimentary

copy of the accompanying white paper.

The Historic Eight

According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, “[An] historic house is

defined as being at least 50 years old, has architecturally important

designs and was the site where an historic event may have occurred or

is associated with a famous person.” Such memorable houses could be

part of a designated historic district in a city or municipality. Atlanta,

which was founded almost 200 years ago, contains eight popular

historic districts and described by blogs at simpleshowing.com and

ntcic.com.

1. wwwGrant Park was founded before the Civil War. This district is

named for Lemuel Pratt Grant, an engineer and businessman who

helped bring the railroad to Atlanta.

2. Inman Park is comprised of many houses constructed in the late

19th and early 20th centuries. This residential development is

considered Atlanta’s first suburb.

HISTORIC HOMES—BACK TO THE

FUTURE

By John Whitcraft, PE, CLD, LEED AP BD+C,

President of Whitcraft Engineering Solutions, Inc.

If there were a crystal ball to foretell the safety issues of today,

historic homes may have been built differently. No one can resist the

historic charm of Atlanta’s century-old homes. They are impressive,

but as a solutions-oriented electrical engineer, I know the intricacies

involved in restoration. Replacing or repairing components often

includes the electric meter panel, sub-panels, household wiring,

electrical boxes, receptacles (outlets), switches, appliances, lights,

and power equipment. Still, major repairs are absolutely worth the

time and investment. My most rewarding project was designing and

updating the electrical system for the Warrior Foundation Freedom

Station II in San Diego, CA. Affectionately known as The Home of

the Brave, this remodeled group of circa-1920 cottages supports

the mission to help United States wounded soldiers successfully

transition from military service to civilian life.

As with many historic buildings, these cottages were transformed

to serve a new type of resident. It was an honor to ensure a safe,

adaptive-living environment for our veterans.

Restoring Instead of Buying New Houses

With homeowners, though, the motives to restore old houses can

vary. One reason could be financial, with prospective buyers believing

that it may be easier to secure a loan for a remodel than for a new

dwelling in today’s ever-challenging real estate market. Another

strong motivation is the appearance and character of the structure,

according to a recent blog by Home Hunters Realty:

No doubt owning an older home can be a satisfying source

of pride in the workmanship and architecture of a bygone

era. Many older homes offer unique features that just aren’t

prevalent in today’s residences. Some homeowners inherit

properties that once belonged to their parents or other

relatives. In some parts of the U.S. maintaining the “old

homestead” is almost a duty that comes with being part of their

family heritage.

3. Castleberry Hill, situated southwest of downtown Atlanta,

became a federally-recognized historic district in 1985 and a “City

of Atlanta Landmark District” back in 2006.

4. Old Fourth Ward became the home of Dr. Martin Luther King

Jr. back in 1929. Currently, many dwellers reside in the area’s

modernized condos.

5. Virginia-Highland’s origins began in 1920. Now this historic site

contains a wide variety of large houses that can be quite costly.

6. West End—with its lovely townhouses— is popular with young

professionals because of its proximity to businesses and cultural

events.

7. Tuxedo Park has the distinction of being listed on the National

Register of Historic Places (NRHP), as well as offering mansionsized

rooms on acres of lush lawns near the Georgian woods.

8. Academy Lofts at Adair Park is a preservation and adaptive reuse

project in an historic elementary school near the Atlanta Beltline

offering 35 residential micro-units, as well as office, event, and

commercial spaces.

Despite the obvious attraction and allure of living in an historic district,

buying in such an area entails rules and regulations about the way a

house may be refurbished or rebuilt in the event of damage or loss:

“While new construction materials may be used in the reconstruction

or repair, the materials may have to conform to certain historical

standards and appearances,” states the Home Hunters Reality blog.

Electrical Problems in Old Houses

As an electrical engineer, I’m probably more aware of electrical

challenges than most professionals. The challenges include the risk

of life-threatening injuries—such as severe shock, electrocution, and

fires—when amateurs attempt to renovate old houses. The dangers are

daunting compared to other types of construction and remodeling. For

this reason, it is vital to hire an electrical engineer and/or an electrical

contractor when restoring a venerable yet vulnerable aging property.

Old houses are especially likely to have such complications because

they are typically underpowered, depending upon 60-amp or 100-amp

service instead of the 200-amp utility in today’s homes. Other routine

issues include ungrounded circuits, wiring with deteriorated or missing

insulation, and circuits controlled by old-fashioned fuses rather than

modern circuit breakers.

38 CONSTRUCTIONMONTHLY.COM


The lifespan of electrical wiring itself is limited by the lifespan of the

wire’s insulation. According to a Money Crashers January 2022 blog by

Brian Martucci:

Wiring installed before 1960 lasts roughly 70 years, while newer

wiring is estimated to last at least 100 years. Once the insulation

deteriorates to the point that the actual wire is exposed, the risk

of electrical fire, shocks, short circuits, and localized (single- or

multi-room) power failures increase dramatically.

Electrical service panels and circuit breakers are also prone to

deterioration. Service panels last 60 or 70 years, while breakers

last 30 or 40. Failing panels and breakers can cause shock, power

failure, fire, and other dangers.

“The good news is that modern electrical components are designed,

tested, and certified for safe, reliable, long-lasting performance,”

explains a recent blog on This Old House. “Building inspectors

throughout the country rely on the same strict, detailed standards for

electrical work in new construction and remodeling projects—provided

by the National Electrical Code.” The NEC is a standard created and

regularly updated by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).

Residential Electric Code Requirements

Electrical code requirements stipulate where different types of

breakers are used. For example, the receptacle circuits in bathrooms,

kitchens, garages, basements, and other wet (or potentially wet) areas

need Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI) protection. In addition,

building codes in many areas now require Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter

(AFCI) breakers for other household circuits because they protect

against fires and electrical flashes caused by arcing faults, which often

occur in damaged or deteriorated wires and cords. Test GFCI outlets

monthly by pressing the button on the outlet marked “Test”. Since

GFCI breakers are expensive, your home may have been wired using

a single GFCI outlet and down-stream outlets chained on the same

circuit. One ground fault opens the entire circuit. Circuit breakers

that feed receptacles will be rated at 15 or 20 amps, which means

they will automatically trip if electrical current exceeds these ratings.

Lighting circuits are controlled by 15 or 20-amp breakers. The house’s

service panel will also contain a limited number of larger “double-pole”

breakers that have higher amp ratings for big appliances such as air

conditioners, stoves, and clothes dryers.

Lighting Upgrades

Remodeling an old house requires replacing incandescent light fixtures

and fluorescent lighting with LED (light-emitting diode) fixtures.

Research shows that LED lighting sources emit light up to 90% more

efficiently than incandescent light bulbs. How do they function? As

an electrical current passes through a microchip, the chip converts

electricity into visible light. When installing new recessed lighting

(also known as can lights) in a ceiling beneath attic space, make sure

to tell your electrical engineer or electrician to use fixtures with an IC

(insulation contact) rating, so that attic insulation can be installed in

direct contact with the fixture. The DMF lighting “One Frame System”

is an example of a recessed “Insulation Contact Rated” fixture.

In addition, ask your electrical engineer or electrical contractor to airseal

around fixtures in the attic to help prevent loss of warm air from

the house’s living space in wintertime. Ask him/her to Include dimmer

switches in the renovation lighting plan. “Being able to moderate the

degree of light (especially in ceiling-mounted lights) is an easy and

effective way to alter the ambiance of living space,” states a recent

This Old House blog. The DMF “One Frame System” is also ASTM

E283 Certified Air Tight.

As an electrical engineering expert, LEDs fascinate me. For that

reason, I’ve provided some interesting facts with comments from Scott

Caron, an electrical contractor, in another This Old House blog:

• Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are commonly used in flashlights and

Christmas tree lights.

• LEDs are long-lasting, super-bright, and energy efficient. Although

the LED costs more, they will probably never be replaced. LEDs

have no filament to fail as incandescent lamps do.

• A standard Christmas tree light consumes seven watts of

electricity per bulb. An entire string of LED lights uses only three

watts.

• Replace old incandescent bulbs with retrofit LEDs, which screw

into standard lamp sockets.

• Reflective-style LEDs come with various bases and often easily

plug into the socket.

• Recessed LEDs combine the light bulb and trim kit into one

compact unit.

• Flush-mounted LEDs can be connected to an existing recessed

fixture or hardwired to a ceiling-mounted electrical box.

• Color-changing LED rope lighting can be installed inside or along

the tops of cabinets and wall units.

• New LEDs can be controlled wirelessly through a smartphone or

tablet, allowing for adjustments with the intensity (brightness) or

color of the light.

• Illuminate kitchen counters with slim LED fixtures that are

designed for under-cabinet installation.

• Exterior-rated LED lights are available for installation outdoors

above a patio, driveway, or deck.

• Almost all commercially available light fixtures now are based on

LED technology.

As homeowners continue to remodel

old houses, either for financial or

nostalgic reasons, they will need the

services of a licensed professional

electrical engineer.

Summer is here and the Government Affairs Committee

(GAC) has been hard at work addressing the challenges and

opportunities that our industry faces on the local level.

Impact Fee Update

The GAC continues to track legislation regarding impact fees

in the 67 municipalities that we serve. Local governments are

consistently looking for ways to fund public safety, parks, and

transportation, and impact fees appear to be the top funding

mechanism sought by the various elected officials.

Discussions with Henry County have continued in 2022 and

date back to June of 2021. The methodology report has

shifted during that time to phased-in approaches with five

different fee options for the commission to consider. The Henry

County proposed increases range from 183% on the low-end

to 529% on the high-end. GAHBA staff continues to work

with Henry County to decipher the calculation of the most

unprecedented increase in impact fees and we will continue to

voice our opposition to any other communities that choose to

implement new fees or increase their existing fees.

City of Atlanta

The Greater Atlanta Home Builders are pleased to welcome

Andre Dickens as the 61st Mayor of the City of Atlanta. Based

on recent correspondence with GAHBA members, we are

encouraged by the feedback from the Mayor’s team regarding

improvements in the Planning Department and the permitting

process. In addition, staff and builders are planning to hold

several calls with Chief Operating Officer, Lisa Gordon to

discuss our priorities and provide input with regards to the

hiring of a new Planning Commissioner.

Dekalb County

We continue to work with Dekalb County officials on the

consent decree and the effect that it has on our builders and

developers. These conversations continued at the beginning of

the year when we hosted Andrew Baker, Director of Planning

and Sustainability, and Maria Houser, Director of Consent

Decree and Environmental Compliance, to discuss the impact

and the challenges associated with sewer capacity.

In addition, GAHBA members had the opportunity to tour the

new Dekalb County Development Services building, slated to

open soon in downtown Decatur. Dekalb County has created

a one-stop-shop for builders and developers to meet with

representatives from each department. We appreciate Dekalb

staff listening to the homebuilding community, and we look

forward to the improved experience in this new space.

City of Holly Springs

In March, GAHBA Staff, along with 24 builders representing

11 companies, met with officials from the City of Holly

Springs to discuss newly released protocols and procedures

regarding inspection guidelines. As growth continues to move

to more rural areas, it has become increasingly difficult for

local municipalities to keep up with the demand in zoning,

permitting, and inspection processes. This was an opportunity

to provide crucial input from our members to the staff of Holly

Springs and work together on a good outcome. The GAHBA

continues to strive to be the conduit for builder-government

relationships and ensure that the residential construction

industry receives proper advocacy and representation before

the various bodies of government.

Gwinnett County

The Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners will host

stakeholder meetings this summer to discuss the recent

Comprehensive Housing Study. Please be on the lookout

for updates from the GAHBA staff regarding meeting dates

and opportunities for Gwinnett builders to get involved in

these efforts. The Board is currently evaluating the study

and will reach out to our Association when a plan of action is

determined.

Welcome Katie Johnston!

The Greater Atlanta Home Builders is pleased to welcome

Katie Johnston as the new Government Affairs Coordinator. As

coordinator, Katie will support our advocacy efforts across the

nine counties we serve. Katie is a “double dog,” holding a B.A.

in political science and a master’s in public administration from

the University of Georgia. We are excited to have Katie on

board, and we are looking forward to expanding our presence

in the 67 municipalities that we serve.

Let Us Know!

As always, the biggest asset to homebuilding advocacy is our

members. We best serve our industry when you reach out with

questions, concerns, and comments relating to your business.
