    Accountable Building Performance with Connor Dillon

    Accountable Building Performance with Connor Dillon

    “You can see a project from start to finish, and you have confidence that the house or multifamily unit was built according to the standards and specifications that the builder promised they would deliver. Our customers provide feedback, and we don’t edit it. We put it into our report, and then we publish it publicly.”- Connor Dillon, Building Science Institute
     
    From quality to energy efficiency, construction thrives on accuracy, clarity, and transparency. Better homes, service, and relationships result when contractors, inspectors, energy raters, and homeowners are open and honest with each other.

    Efforts like Building Science Institute are crucial for this new vision to come true. Their stringent quality measures, focus on customer feedback, and industry partnerships position them to serve your needs with honesty.

    Mapping Out the Future with Maria Khokhlova

    Mapping Out the Future with Maria Khokhlova

    “There is a lot we can offer people if it would be easy enough, intuitive enough, integrated enough into their daily workflows. With this in mind, we built our product to be minimal in tech-savviness yet powerful.”
    -    Maria Khokhlova, TraceAir
     
    Often, the best innovations are right in front of us. For Maria and the TraceAir team, combining construction and technology felt obvious yet unexplored. Their first thought was to make drone imagery accessible for job sites. As contractors move dirt and erect structures, providing updated data to key people elevates their efforts.
     
    TraceAir is a modern map made with user-friendliness in mind. As a result, it streamlines decision-making and increases efficiency for construction professionals.
     
    Is construction in need of technological developments like TraceAir? Can a solution like this work for your business? Get a behind-the-scenes look at an innovative idea coming to job sites near you.

    The Tech-Driven Hotel of the Future with Glenn Hasek

    The Tech-Driven Hotel of the Future with Glenn Hasek

    “I was probably the first journalist in the hotel industry to write about the environment consistently. I grew up in nature, so in some way, I like to advocate for it in my work. Nowadays, I find a sense of urgency among hotel companies about the climate and the state of the world in general.”
     
    -       Glenn Hasek, Green Lodging News
     
    Hotels occupy a unique spot in the building and construction world. They enjoy an economy of scale with millions of rooms and hundreds of millions of guests. But, hotels are driven by profit, so can green alternatives improve quality of life and lower costs too?
     
    As the rest of the world figures out a more sustainable way to live, hotels are a perfect test bed for technological advancements ranging from energy management systems to dissolvable soap containers.
     
    While tech thrusts hotels forward into a brighter, energy-efficient future, will they lead construction in the charge or trail behind?
     
    Topics discussed in this interview:
    -      Todd’s trip to METALCON
    -      Glenn’s start in journalism
    -      Hotels and their early attitude toward the environment
    -      New developments in hotel design
    -      Projections for future advancements
    -      Solar and hotels
    -      Smoking vs. nonsmoking and the battle for air quality
    -      Rapid-fire questions

    Revitalizing Homeowner and Contractor Communication with Ron Nussbaum

    Revitalizing Homeowner and Contractor Communication with Ron Nussbaum

    “I’ve been in sales, leadership, and management. I ran a crew and was a laborer on a job site before. Over the last 12 years, I’ve experienced everything in residential construction. There’s a lack of transparency and communication breakdowns we could all avoid if we had the right systems in place and people were on the same page.”
     
    -    Ron Nussbaum, Co-Founder/CEO of Nuttnest
     
    Communication makes life tick. We clear things up, set expectations, misunderstand each other, cause problems, waste time, and make life-changing decisions.
     
    Like any other avenue, construction and remodeling rely on clear communication between both parties. The homeowner wants dates, times, and reassurance, while the contractor needs a way to show their vision, schedule work, and provide updates.
     
    The current solution is a fragmented mess of social media, phone calls, and text messages that often miss the mark. 
     
    Nuttnest proposes a hub for effortless communication above everything. Will they deliver? How will it work for your company? 
     
    Topics discussed in this interview:
    -      Ron’s background in construction
    -      Construction’s public perception
    -      Taking an active role in redefining communication
    -      Developing a central platform for contractor-customer interaction
    -      Designing an accessible app for all
    -      The story behind the name
    -      Who is Nuttnest for?
    -      How far along is Nuttnest?
