Robotics has revolutionized manufacturing, and companies say the trend will continue. For contractors serving those manufacturers, it’s a case of get on board or be left behind. Jeremy Abbott’s electrical contracting business has chosen the former approach. DECO has a long history of partnering with Boeing Commercial Airplanes and the companies that supply Boeing’s Washington-based […]

Kessler Construction LLC

When Kessler Construction LLC broke ground in March 2016 for an exclusive subdivision just a couple of miles from the traffic beltway that encircles the hustle and bustle of Tallahassee, Florida, the foundation was laid for much more than just another neighborhood of upscale, custom houses. The Southern Oaks project marked the start of Leon […]

Tallahassee Builders Association

Far removed from the beaches and theme parks that define other locales, north Florida has its own amenities that attract some of the 1,000 folks who move to the Sunshine State daily. “It’s a beautiful place to live and raise your family,” says Lynne Edwards, executive officer of the Tallahassee Builders Association (TBA) and owner […]

Praesidium Homes LLC

In 2015, when R. Vaughn Poppell and Tim Tucker founded Praesidium Homes LLC, a construction company specializing in insulated concrete forms (ICFs), their goal was to bring a superior method of building to the “average Joe” of Tallahassee, Florida, which meant overcoming how ICFs are viewed. ICF wall systems have been around since World War […]

Greenman-Pedersen Inc.

The developer of Spaulding Green, a 400-acre housing community in Clarence, New York, realized target buyers preferred homes built into hillsides with walk-out basements. The land being developed was essentially flat, though. To make the walk-out basements possible, Greenman-Pedersen Inc. (GPI) got creative and turned flat land into varied terrain with ponds, hills and elevated […]

Ohio Contractors Association

If you look on a map for Mineral Springs, Ohio, you might have trouble finding it. So while people living in the area long knew they could use a place for gathering and socializing, it seemed unlikely this need would be met. Who would organize and build it? Who’d pay for it? In came the […]

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.

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

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.
