Editor’s note: Manufacturing harkens a brighter future in 2 ways

Builders are blurring the lines between industries with good results

Of all the industries we cover, manufacturing gets the least attention. But more and more, it’s creeping into the mix of stories about contractors and specialty contractors, engineers and architects, developers and the like.

8 companies show why not to scoff at Safety Week

We are far from our perilous past

National Safety Week begins April 30, and that gives many of North America’s most prominent builders a chance to highlight—often-times quite legitimately—their ways of protecting employees from undue risk.

Hoping the inauguration offers hints on the Trump infrastructure plan? So are we

Neil Cote, a US Builders Review feature writer and long time journalist, outlines President Elect Donald Trump’s infrastructure plan – or what we know of it

“America’s Infrastructure First!” Then-candidate Donald Trump didn’t sound those words quite so often as “Make America Great Again!” but the former line was high among his tools for national overhaul, and people took notice, including—maybe especially—those who build and repair bridges, roads, schools, power grids and the other systems that keep our nation humming. Which, […]

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.
