Selzer-Ornst's Tadisch Builds Structures, Community Stability
By Sean Ryan – Reporter, Milwaukee Business Journal

Bob Lemke noticed the drive in future construction executive Matthew Tadisch even when he was a student at the Milwaukee School of Engineering.

Lemke was Tadisch’s professor at MSOE, and saw him take first place in a national competition by the Associated General Contractors of America. Tadisch interned in his freshman year on renovations to Lambeau Field in his hometown of Green Bay.

Years later in 2020, when Lemke was setting up to retire from his real estate company Wisconsin Redevelopment, he sold his share of the firm to Tadisch.
“He’s always sought to try to do better, and try to be better,” Lemke said. “I’m anxious to see what’s ahead for him.”

Wisconsin Redevelopment leads affordable housing developments and often partners with budding minority developers. Tadisch now co-owns Wisconsin Redevelopment with Todd Hutchison, co-founder with Lemke.
It is the third firm Tadisch has acquired in the past three years. He acquired Milwaukee construction company Selzer-Ornst Co. in 2017, and expanded that operation a year ago with the acquisition of ABCO Building Corp. in Brookfield.

The October buy-in with Wisconsin Redevelopment will help Tadisch become more involved in real estate investment and development in the future. Tadisch for about 10 years has owned some commercial and residential properties in the area.

“It’s been a long-term plan and vision and it’s been part of Selzer-Ornst’s plan for the last few years to get into the real estate development market because that adds another pipeline for work, it enhances our services,” Tadisch said. “It builds stability for the organization long term.”

Tadisch acquired Selzer-Ornst after working in several different construction industry jobs. He did project management and sales for Gilbane Building Co.’s Milwaukee office, was an account and sales executive for Kenosha-based Riley Construction, and was a real estate manager for Kohl’s Corp.

Tadisch said those various roles helped him learn “how to be strategic and how to consistently be in the game to try to win projects.”

Selzer-Ornst Co. is a general contractor and construction manager that also self-performs some trades work. Since Tadisch’s acquisition, it has grown from...Read full article here.

Paycheck Protection Program Information
 
SBA Continues to Respond to AGC Pressure to Revise Questionnaire

Paycheck Protection Program | COVID-19 Relief LoansIn a further response to AGC pressure to restrict the use and ultimately require the Small Business Administration (SBA) to revise its Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) “Loan Necessity Questionnaire” -- including the lawsuit that AGC filed against SBA on December 8 -- the agency has just announced that it is providing an additional 60 days for public comment on the questionnaire and “will submit any resulting amendments to the information collection to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for approval.”

The questionnaire is a previously secret form that the SBA is now requiring all borrowers of PPP loans over $2 million to complete as they apply for loan forgiveness.  The purported purpose of the form is help SBA pass judgment on the certification that all borrowers had to make, at the time they applied for their loans, that “[c]urrent economic uncertainty makes this loan request necessary to support the ongoing operations of the Applicant.”  The fundamental problems with the form are that it focuses on the way that the following months actually played out, that it establishes a variety of liquidity and other tests that borrowers could not anticipate – and that it provides little opportunity for borrowers to explain the real reasons for their economic uncertainty.

Following several weeks of quite but frank (and ultimately unproductive) communication with federal decisionmakers,  AGC filed its lawsuit against SBA in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The very next day, the SBA issued new guidance on the form, declaring that the agency does not intend to base its decisions solely or exclusively on a borrowers’ responses to the form and that the agency will only decide whether a borrower acted “in good faith at the time of [its] loan application.”  The day after that, after months of insisting that it needed to keep the form secret, the SBA officially released the form, posting a copy on the agency’s web site.  Today’s announcement is the third sign that AGC has been effective.    

Over the coming weeks, AGC will be deciding whether, and if so, how to proceed with its lawsuit.  At this point, SBA has already provided most of the legal relief AGC was seeking.  The agency has effectively restricted its use of the form and it has started the process required to revise it.   The agency has yet, however, to complete that process.

Have questions? please feel free to reach out to Mike Kennedy at mike.kennedy@agc.org.

“Mobile elevated work platforms, also known as aerial lifts or MEWPs, are popular on a variety of job sites. The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) defines a mobile elevated work platform as “a machine/device intended for moving persons, tools and material to working positions,” and consisting of a work platform with controls and an extending structure mounted on a mobile chassis. ANSI updated their A92 standards with new safe use, training and design requirements for MEWPs. If your company uses MEWPs, ANSI’s new safe use and training requirements are now industry-standard best practices.”

About 2.3 million workers are exposed to respirable crystalline silica in their workplaces, including 2 million construction workers who drill, cut, crush, or grind silica-containing materials such as concrete and stone.

OSHA’s Silica Standard took effect in June 2017. Find out what this new standard means to your operation.

In addition to qualified signalpersons and certified operators, the new OSHA crane standard requires employees who perform rigging operations to be “qualified.”  This course has been developed by the Crosby Group to assist employers in qualifying their personnel as “Qualified Riggers” as required in the new crane standards.  The standard also requires an experience component which is not provided in this course. Note: This course is four hours in length.  To receive a card verifying their attendance in this class, attendees must be present the entire four hours.

Dan Burazin, AGC of Greater Milwaukee


OSHA requires you to meet new requirements under the Crane Standard for Construction Operations – Subpart CC.  Effective November 10, 2018, anyone performing crane signals on a construction site has to be “qualified.”  For your employees to fit into this category, they must: be competent in the application of the types of signals used, have a basic understanding of crane operations and limitations, know and understand the new crane standard as it applies to signaling, and demonstrate all of the above through testing.  This new course will help contractors meet their obligations under this newly revised standard.

Today’s challenging economic climate is not the time to back off on safety, but instead to charge ahead with communicating the importance of an accident-free workplace.  Establishing safety objectives and defining responsibilities has never been as critical as it is today.  Holding people accountable for their actions and evaluating their performance can have a big impact on the bottom line.  At one organization, the average cost of a shoulder injury was $50,000, a back injury was $35,000, a knee injury was $30,000 and a hand injury was approximately $20,000.  Learn how to prevent these losses and protect your bottom line!
