Missouri’s Design-Build Legislation

Construction isn’t known for being quiet. But over the last 25 years, a force has quietly swept the industry: design-build. In 1993, only three states allowed design-build, a construction method in which one team is tasked with both designing and constructing a project. Design-build presents an alternative to design-bid-build, in which one team designs a […]

Paige Industrial Services Inc.

As the general contracting company’s history shows, Paige Industrial Services Inc. is not afraid to try something new. When President Devroux Paige founded the company in 1990, it was a residential cleaning services company called Paige Cleaning Services. After a few years, the Washington D.C.-based company evolved into a commercial and industrial janitorial services provider. […]

Arco Excavation & Paving Inc.

When Heath Taylor started Arco Excavation & Paving Inc. with partner Brian Adams in 2004, he only had a dump truck, trailer and a D3 dozer to his name. So for the first three years, the excavating contracting company focused on building up its reputation, completing earthwork and utilities for commercial projects in northwest Arkansas. […]

Rural Renewable Energy Alliance

In the winter of 1999, Jason Edens, an environmental graduate student at Bemidji State University, faced a terrifying prospect: he couldn’t afford to buy heating fuel. That would be bad news for anyone living in frigid northern Minnesota, where winter temperatures regularly fall into the single digits and below. And it’s not uncommon, as over […]

Dave Downing & Associates

When it comes to air and water filtration, sometimes the hardest thing may be knowing your choices, says Dave Downing. As the founder of Dave Downing & Associates (DDA), an air and water filtration supply company based in Phoenix, Arizona, he would know. His company distributes and installs myriad products that include air filters, air […]

Pacheco Brothers Gardening Inc.

According to George Pacheco, president of Pacheco Brothers Gardening Inc., nothing is as dangerous to athletes as sliding over a sunflower seed stuck in synthetic turf. Not only does it cut “like glass,” but it can cause infections. Sunflower seeds aren’t the only thing hiding in the plastic turf. “On a regular soccer or football […]

Mayer Electric Inc.

Rainy day people always seem to know when it’s time to call. So goes Gordon Lightfoot’s old song, the meaning of which may have hit home—literally—for the folks in Minot, North Dakota, in May 2011 when Mayer Electric Inc. lent its services following flood conditions. Normally a much cherished season in the upper plains, the […]

Tyler Gonzalez Architects

When the city of Pasadena, California, or one of the nearby communities, tinkers with its zoning code or elects a new Planning Commission, principals Rob Tyler and Javier Gonzalez pay attention. The firm they co-founded more than 30 years ago, Tyler Gonzalez Architects, has a vested interest in reading the pulse of the community. Much […]

Peck Peck & Associates

Alexis Peck knows that with tighter budgets, shorter timelines and the occasional political situation to weather over, nothing in government projects is ever set in stone. As vice president of design for Peck Peck & Associates (PP&A), an architecture firm based in Woodbridge, Virginia, she has seen budgets and schedules change overnight with the signing […]

Prodigy Construction

Before 2007, most general contractors self-performed at least a few different trades. This involved hiring a larger staff of skilled workers and giving them work through busy and lean periods. But after the financial crisis in 2008 killed projects and forced thousands of workers out of the industry, many contractors started subbing out almost all […]

Testimonials

My experience with US Builders Review was positive from start to finish. The staff conducted each interaction with the utmost professionalism, whether over the phone or by email. Beginning with the initial telephone interview US Builders Review carefully gathered information to form a draft document then incorporated my minimal edits required to achieve factual accuracy in the finished article. US Builders Review is a pleasure to work with.
— Tim Craddock, President, Vansant & Gusler Inc.
The final product was an exceptionally well written and thorough story integrated with many of our project photos. It is a great endorsement of our company and our work that we are promoting on our website and through social media. We were impressed with the quality of the editorial and the professional follow-through.
— Susan Howell, Marketing Director for Howell Custom Building Group
I would like to commend the US Builders Review staff for their work in developing and writing a fantastic article for Miller Contracting Group, Inc. It was truly a pleasure to work with their professional and well organized staff.
— Chuck Daniels, Business Manager, Miller Contracting Group Inc.
The process was simple: we were provided questions that the writers wanted to discuss, we were interviewed, and then we got to see a few drafts before the final version went to print. Given the quality of this publication, on behalf of Giroux, I can assure everyone that all of my partners would be happy to participate in similar articles in the future.
— Barbara Kotsos, Director of Marketing & PR, Giroux Glass
The team at US Builders Review is professional and did a great job with your published article. They asked for and listened to my feedback and responded quickly to any requests I made.
— Susan Courter, Director of Business Development, R.E. Crawford Construction
I was contacted as a nominee for the Greenbuild Editor’s Choice 2016 recognition and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Working with US Builders Review has been a blessing for my company. Erica Berry took an awesome interview in the initial call as she gathered data for the article. She was concerned about how we became us, and she made me feel important by listening and taking notes. Then there is Ian Nichols who made me feel so comfortable in sharing my story, and Molly Shaw who interviewed me as well, as she was getting ready to create an awesome article about my company -- and I must say she nailed it on the first run! What a pleasure it has been to work with everyone. This feature on Container Homes USA will help me push the company into the forefront at the Greenbuild Expo 2016.
— Derrick C. W. Childs, Director Construction & Design, Container Homes USA

— Kirt McGhee, Owner, K4M Construction
Everyone that we worked with was polite, professional, responsive & very good to work with. It was amazing to see the ideas transformed into the final product. We are very happy with the end results and would not hesitate to work with them in the future or recommend them to other business!
— James Kowalski, Owner, Kowalski Construction Inc.
Kyle Gahm was instrumental in coordinating this project from beginning to end. He was always available and a pleasure to work with. It would be a pleasure to work with Kyle down the road. Bill Keaton was very impressive in raising money from advertising which resulted in ASE getting the cover story, so thank you Bill. Lia Prysunka and Jeanee Dudley are both very impressive individuals who deserve a lot of credit for this featured piece. They were both very patient and accepting of any changes we suggested. The format, quality, and resolution was awesome. To sum it all up: Our upper management, who never have been high on PR and things of this nature said that it was "absolutely fantastic" and were blown away. They now are requesting multiple copies of the full magazine and are very proud of the work you all put in. Thanks again.
— Ryan Sanzari, Director of Operations, Alfred Sanzari Enterprises
