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, December 7 | 11:15 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. | Keynote Area PROJECT MANAGEMENT

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

Tom Woodcock

President | Seal the Deal

Selling Thru a Tough Economy

Wednesday, December 7 | 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:

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, December 8 | 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!

President | Seal the Deal

Retaining Good Employees: How Homebuilders, Remodelers, and GC’s Can

Implement A Predictable Process To Keep The Right Team

9:30 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. | Room E216A BUSINESS MANAGEMENT

Scott Beebe

Founder & Head Coach | Business on Purpose

1 out of every 4 employees left their jobs in 2021…most voluntarily. The talent squeeze that contractors feel is predicted

to continue well into the future.

What is true for sales, namely that repeat customers are far easier to come by than new customers, is also true for

employees; retaining and growing existing employees is far easier and more effective than trying to find new ones.

This life-changing, 45 minute workshop will equip your leadership toolbelt with practical, take-home tools to provide for

your team that allows each person to thrive in their role, grow to new roles, and align with the mission that you have laid

out.

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.

them. Make sure your approach to the customer base is the most effective possible. These errors are often made without

SPECIAL CHARLOTTE SHOW EDITION 2022 29


That is an infinite and empty

treadmill leading to the same

destination over and over.

I am going to walk you through

the four steps you need to take

to navigate your business in

2023 in a powerful way.

The first step in building your

business plan for 2023 is

making time to fill out your

Vision Story.

If you are comparing your 2022 to 2020 and 2021 you may

want to pause.

Standing here at the early sunset hours of 2022 we are

feeling a very real metaphor.

It goes like this.

During 2020 and 2021 many of our businesses were

barreling down the business highway at 90 mph winding hot

at 10,000 RPM’s.

Today, it already feels like a massive slowdown, and it has

been. Let’s not lose perspective though…instead of going

from 90 mph to 0…we are now riding down the highway at a

more sustainable, more comfortable pace of 70 mph, and the

good news is that we are only running at 5,000 RPM’s.

In other words, it is taking far less effort to go just a little bit

slower and start to get some breathing room.

The problem is that our human minds have grown

accustomed to the speed, breathlessness, chaos, and cash

flow of the past two years and we don’t know how to

mentally or emotionally throttle our expectations, let alone

our spending habits.

New norms have emerged over the past two years; pricing

volatility, material and logistics inconsistencies, marketing

and sales simplicities, and probably the most noticeable

internally is that your employees want more money for

the same roles and while demanding more flexibility and

meaning. Employees want their business life to fuel their

personal lives, and not the other way around.

Historically, business owners have tried to solve headaches

by shooting one particular shiny bullet…sales, sales, sales.

If we could just get more work then we would have more

cash to pay higher fees, higher premiums, higher wages,

higher demands, and higher expectations.

In 2023, where vision is

not written down, people

will indeed scatter, and that

scattering of people will further

scatter your mind and thoughts into a web of frustration.

Instead, follow the ancient Jewish wisdom that says, “write

the vision down so that those who read it may run.”

Vision is clarifying and vision is separating. When you cast

vision you know who is bought in and who is not. Some will

run towards your vision and some away from your vision.

You will be tempted to scoot on past writing your vision

down and instead make up some silly excuse in your

head that either, “I don’t need this” or “oh yeah, we’ve got

something like that”.

We’ve made crafting your vision simple.

Seven categories to begin working through, and you will

likely need to make about an hour or so of time for this

powerful and important exercise. Notice I said the word

exercise…it’s work and it’s healthy.

1. Term/Time

2. Family/Freedom

3. Financial

4. Product/Service

5. Team

6. Client

7. Culture

The second necessary tool in your 2023 business planning

toolkit is the sobering Delegation Roadmap.

Andrew Carnegie said, “No person will make a great business

who wants to do it all himself or get all the credit.”

John Maxwell said, “If you want to do a few small things

right, do them yourself. If you want to do great things and

make a big impact, learn to delegate.”

Discovering delegation will make time for what matters most

in three ways:

30 CONSTRUCTIONMONTHLY.COM


• It Empowers others to put out the fires

• It transfers your authority to them

• It multiplies your effort

The moment that you stop delegating, or choose to not

delegate and empower is the moment that you have chosen

to have a job instead of owning a business.

The third necessary tool in your 2023 business planning

toolkit is the non-negotiable Weekly Schedule.

You feel busy but not productive because you have little to

no boundaries.

I recently heard Lance Golinghorst articulate that we all have

access to three major scarce resources: time, energy, and

attention.

Attention is indivisible. It is well researched that multitasking

doesn’t work. As I am writing and reading this, I should not

be brushing my teeth or checking my bank balance.

Energy is renewable (I can generate more energy), and

transferable (I can give you energy and you can give me

energy).

The real wake up call is in regard to our time. Time is

non-renewable (we cannot make more of it), and it is not

transferable (you cannot give yours to me).

You go into each week with a defined, finite allotment of

time. Either you put boundaries throughout your day roping

off all of the tasks and responsibilities, or we will do it for

you.

If you do it, it allows you to maximize your scarce resources

of time, energy, and attention. If we do it for you, then we

will devour your time, energy, and attention.

You can make excuses as to why it won’t work in the

specific role you are in. We love you, but your role is not a

special unicorn or snowflake. Own your role by owning the

boundaries for your role and then share those boundaries

with us so we can support you.

Finally, for a robust 2023 business plan, you will benefit from

building and implementing a Culture Calendar.

The culture of your business is not happenstance...it is not an

accident, and no luck is required.

The culture of your business is a DIRECT RESULT of the

ingredients that you allow to enter the mash bill.

If you allow the ingredients of unpredictability, inconsistency,

minimal communication, lack of process, lack of mission,

gossip, and no values in decision making, then the result

will be a business that has notes of unpredictability, lack of

process and the like.

If however, you allow only the ingredients of consistent

communication, accountability, humor, reinforced process,

and clarity in vision, mission, and values, then the result will

be a business that has notes of the same.

Again, the four tools that will change the game for you and

your team in 2023.

1. Vision Story

2. Delegation Roadmap

3. Weekly Schedule

4. Culture Calendar

Our mission is to help liberate business owners, like you,

from chaos to make time for the things that matter most.

Working 70 hours a week is NOT what matters most…

empowering others to live into their narrow brilliance IS what

matters most.

Remember, when you choose to implement, you are choosing

to cut the chaos and make time for what matters most.

Joe Calloway said it, “vision without implementation is

hallucination.”

CAGC MEMBERS AND STAFF LOBBY FOR

CONSTRUCTION SUPPORT

In late September, Carolinas AGC (CAGC) leaders met in

Washington, D.C. with Congressional Delegations from

the Carolinas to urge their support of infrastructure

and Career Technical Education funding and oppose

mandatory Project Labor Agreements, burdensome Buy

America provisions and proposed heat standards that

would be extremely impractical for the construction

industry.

The three-day National & Chapter Leadership

Conference, from Sept. 18-20, featured business and

political sessions, networking events and visits to Capitol

Hill by about 300 representatives of AGC of America’s 89

chapters, including CAGC.

“This year’s AGC National Chapter Leadership Conference

again gave us a great opportunity to help support the

34 CONSTRUCTIONMONTHLY.COM

construction industry in the Carolinas by informing us of

the latest on what we need to know politically and then

having us do something about it by making personal visits

with our Congressional delegations in North and South

Carolina,” said Charlie Wilson, Chair of the CAGC Board

of Directors.

CAGC representatives participating in the AGCA event

included the five BOD Officers – Charlie Wilson,

President; Mark Johnnie, Chair Elect; Dean Wilson,

Treasurer; Ty Edmondson, Vice Chair; and Casey

Schwager, Immediate Past Chair. Also participating in

the annual outing were Dave Simpson, CAGC President

& CEO, and Allen Gray, Director of AGCA’s Utility

Infrastructure Division and former CAGC Utility Division

Director.


A highlight of the trip included personal visits with

U.S. Sen. Thom Tillis, R-NC (who supported CAGC’s

push to do more with immigration efforts to ease the

construction workforce shortage, including his support

of asylum reform), and U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson, R-SC, who

voiced support about continuing to significantly increase

CTE funding. In addition, the CAGC delegation met with

the staffs of U.S. Senators Lindsey Graham, R-SC, and

Richard Burr, R-NC, and U.S. Reps. Patrick McHenry and

Virginia Foxx, both of NC.

Some key points of the messaging to members of

Congress included:

• More needs to be done with guest worker relief and

immigration reform, including extending DACA & TPS,

to allow badly needed and qualified people into the

construction industry at a time when the workforce

shortage is our number-one challenge.

• Continue increasing CTE funding at a time when

federal funding is running at $27B for CTE versus

$101B for higher education.

• Oppose government-mandated Project Labor

Agreements on federal projects.

• Oppose HR 2193 involving federal heat standards

and instead support industry efforts and best

practices.

DigiBuild Raises $4M Seed to

Fix Construction Supply Chains

The round includes high profile investors YCombinator,

Draper Associates, Picus Capital, and Harvard

Construction is one of the largest and oldest markets in

the world. Projects involve many stakeholders that bare

significant cost and risk. McKinsey estimates that the average

construction project is 80% over budget and 20 months behind

schedule. The number one reason for that failure is supply

chain and material management issues.

DigiBuild is working to change that. Their goal is to digitize the

fragmented and tedious workflows involved in managing and

procuring building materials. They’ve created an easy-to-use

software platform that automates finding, ordering, tracking

and managing materials needed on a construction project. The

platform includes innovative features like Predictive Scheduling

which produces “Must Order by Dates” that guarantees

contractors have the material they need on time to meet their

job schedules.

The company announced the $4 million seed round with

investors: YCombinator, Draper Associates, Harvard University,

Picus Capital, Bluefield Capital (2x), Cathexis Ventures, MH

Carnegie, YC Alum Fund, Emerging Ventures, Chain Reaction

and more. The round included strong signals from construction

heavy hitters such as investments from the cofounders of

contech unicorn PlanGrid (YC W12, acquired $875M by

Autodesk) and Build Technologies, a venture fund of major

construction companies.

DigiBuild’s main product is DigiProcure, the material

management solution. Using this tool, customers are reporting

powerful results such as cutting material management (change)

hours in half, saving hundreds of thousands with better material

pricing, and reducing contractor schedule misses by 90%.

The Miami based company also offers DigiEndeavour, a general

construction management offering comparable to the industry

leading solutions.

Of note, multiple industry leaders like Procore have been

rumored to have explored investment in DigiBuild. CEO Robert

Salvador commented of those offers “we appreciate the interest

of the construction-tech industry’s trail blazers in the in us. We

closed the round before they had a chance to finalize investment,

but we look forward to working with them in the future”.

The company seems well-positioned to succeed in this lucrative

market segment. DigiBuild has a well-qualified team of leaders

who have managed over $5 billion in construction projects and

an experienced engineering team. Robert Salvador, Cofounder

and CEO, previously founded a construction company that

worked nationwide and was recently named one of Crain’s

Chicago Business’ “25 Rising Stars in Tech”. He is a frequent

speaker for construction organizations like BuiltWorlds and

The Construction Institute. Cofounder and COO April Moss

provides operational and customer success leadership having

been an executive that built teams for large companies such as

P&G, Starbucks, and Acosta Sales & Marketing.

As part of the near-term roadmap, DigiBuild will look to expand

their DigiProcure offering to additional trade contractors

and general contractors as they become the trusted material

management software for the construction industry.
