Mercy Ridge

In 2010, Mercy Ridge became the first retirement community in the country to receive a silver LEED certification for an existing building. But for Gary Pfeifer, the director of facilities, the third-highest certification in the Operations and Maintenance Rating System (O&M) category wasn’t enough. “During the celebration I made a comment to a few close […]

Smart Growth

When Christopher Porto describes his ideal Oakland, California, he envisions a city almost devoid of cars. But that’s not all he envisions. Through his real estate development company, Smart Growth, he imagines developing the area into tightknit communities that are closer to transit corridors, reducing the need for cars and increasing a sense of place; […]

AP+I Design

In California, LEED Certification is so in that it’s out. Now that so many of the California Green Building Standard Code requirements essentially bring buildings up to these strict environmental standards, builders and property tenants are shifting their focus from strictly environmental health to employee health and wellbeing. Companies hope this will help attract and […]

Apple Tree Contractors

Apple Tree Contractors fills a tough niche in the construction industry—it handles the hard stuff. Specifically, it takes many projects where building and zoning code compliance are called into question and then works with officials to resolve them. “It’s a double-edged sword,” jokes Chad Simpson, project manager and corporate secretary. “On one hand, it’s great […]

BCCI Construction Company

If BCCI Construction wants clients to know how the WELL Building Standard can improve a work environment, all the staff needs to do is give a tour of the headquarters. That’s because, a little more than a year ago, the company designed its new office in accordance with the standard. “We really did create a […]

The Duffie Companies

Just as restaurants like Starbucks and Subway list the calories in their menu items, Shane Pollin predicts the building industry might one day list Energy Star ratings. That disclosure, he hopes, would get people to look at buildings differently. While it may sound farfetched, this isn’t the first time one of Pollin’s ideas has sounded […]

Testimonials

TrueLine Publishing was a delight to work with. They were extremely patient and worked diligently to get our article written and published. The team always responded in a timely manner and was courteous. I look forward to working with TrueLine Publishing in the future and will recommend them to other businesses.
— Crystal Leos, Business Development, DALLASWHITE Property Restoration
What a great team US Builders has put in place! Having worked with Victor Martins a few years back, I was pleasantly surprised that he remembered our experience and contacted us again about an updated article. Not only did Victor brainstorm with me about content that would resonate with readers, but he assigned an excellent writer, Molly Shaw, to our account. Her interview with my client, Bardi Heating Cooling & Plumbing, was professional and succinct; as was her writing style. We had very few edits and were pleased not only with the article, but how well it was enhanced by color photos. Much appreciated!
— Karen Bird, Owner of Strategic Marketing Services, Bardi Heating Cooling & Plumbing
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
It was an absolute pleasure to work with the writers and editorial team at TrueLine Publishing for our recent article in US Builders Review. From the start of the project, it was apparent that everyone involved was very concerned with accuracy and getting the facts right. They were also very conscientious about soliciting our feedback and ensuring that we were happy with the content and with the manner in which Giroux Glass was described in the finalized piece.
— Barbara Kotsos, Director of Marketing & PR, Giroux Glass
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.

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
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.
Professional with attention to customer’s needs. Well prepared vision for article while open to suggestions. Provided plenty feedback and review prior to final draft. Thanks in advance for the assistance and promotion of our organization!
