Paskr Offers ConsensusDOCS Contracts in Project Management Software

Responding to customers’ interest to use ConsensusDOCS, Paskr now offers several ConsensusDOCS standard contracts within its project management software.

ConsensusDOCS subscribers will now be able to access seven documents from within the Paskr software.

"Paskr is a document portal that utilizes the technology of the Internet to bring teams together and deliver, share and execute the documents. Utilizing Paskr to deliver ConsensusDOCS contracts provides a state of the art tool that the industry has been begging for," according to Pat Whalen, president of Paskr.

The new arrangement between ConsensusDOCS and Paskr follows a number of other recent developments highlighting growing support for ConsensusDOCS.

  • For example, the number of organizations participating in ConsensusDOCS has grown from 30 at the beginning of 2011 to 35 today.
  • The number of ConsensusDOCS users continues to grow despite a depressed construction economy.
  • In Ohio, a new $4.4 million, 17,500-square-foot Capital Park Family Health Center opened on October 19 and "employed the industry-endorsed ConsensusDOCS contracts to efficiently assemble and lead a design and construction team that delivered a cutting-edge, dispute-free project for us and for the community," commented Joy Parker, RN, CEO, Capital Park Family Health Center.

ConsensusDOCS and Paskr will continue to work together to incorporate the complete library of 90+ ConsensusDOCS contract documents within the Paskr project management software, ConsensusDOCS Executive Director Brian Perlberg added.

ConsensusDOCS contracts are the only industry standard contracts written by 35 leading design and construction industry organizations. Offering a catalog of 90+ contract documents covering all methods of project delivery, ConsensusDOCS contracts incorporate fair risk allocation and best practices to represent the project’s best interests. Coalition Members – that include AWI – represent designers, owners, contractors, subcontractors and sureties (DOCS). For more information, visit www.ConsensusDOCS.org.

USGBC Launches App Lab

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) has launched its online App Lab as part of its LEED® Automation Program.

The App Lab launched with eight applications, developed by LEED Automation Partners, and is designed for use with Internet browsers, tablets, smartphones and other devices.

The App Lab is a searchable catalog of third-party apps that are integrated with LEED data. Each app is a fully functional software tool that has been enhanced to provide LEED projects teams and administrators integration with LEED Online and address the LEED certification process. These tools are already being used for helping with task management, data interchange, file uploads, credit scorecards, credit strategies, team messaging and other uses, and are now capable of interacting directly with USGBC's LEED Online system.

"The LEED App Lab has been highly anticipated as a way to leverage multiple partners to expand the presence of green building," said Scot Horst, Senior Vice President, LEED, U.S. Green Building Council. "The potential leverage points are so numerous that we really cannot anticipate the full impact of the App Lab. All we are sure of is that we have created a place to ignite the flames of true innovation and growth."

All LEED automation partners have the ability to publish new apps to USGBC's App Lab.

Federal Scene

Three Percent Witholding Requirement Repealed

Contractor and subcontractor associations hail repeal of the law that was an obstacle to the construction industry’s economic recovery.

On November 21, "President Obama signed legislation (H.R. 674) that repeals section 511 of the Tax Increase Prevention and Reconciliation Act of 2005 (P.L. 109-22), which required federal, state and local governments to deduct and withhold for potential tax liabilities 3% from payments to vendors for all types of goods and services, including construction," according to the American Subcontractors Association (ASA).

"The law permanently repeals the requirement that federal, state, and large local governments begin withholding 3% of each payment of $10,000 or more to a contractor after January 1, 2013," according to the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC).

"The withholding law, which was repealed before it took effect, would have reduced government contractors’ cash flow by hundreds of millions of dollars each year and increased the costs of public construction, even as many governments cut construction programs," ASA said.

Oregon Chapter & a President Who's Driven

By Greg Bednar, AWI Chapter Coordinator

Sean McConeghy had been employed with an AWI Manufacturing Member for some time, but his attendance at the 2010 AWI Convention was his first experience beyond that. Evidently, it created an impact as it drove him to learn more about the depth of resources and networking available throughout AWI. What he found was a cohesive network of like-minded professional woodworkers who can accomplish much more than they can acting alone.

AWI Oregon Chapter Formation

Reid Giving of Stiles Machinery approached AWI about establishing an AWI chapter in Oregon in the early fall of 2010. Due to conflicts with schedules, the date of January 26, 2011 was set for an exploratory meeting. Reid worked diligently to gather prominent area industry professionals for an exploratory meeting. Attending this meeting, Mr. McConeghy lost no time in stepping up to the challenge and immediately worked to rally the other attendees. As you might expect, by the end of the evening, the group elected their new officers; Sean McConeghy, President; Jerry Stump, Architectural Millwork Manufacturing, Vice President; and Amy Booher, Pilgrims Fine Woodwork, Secretary/Treasurer.

Wasting no time at their next organizational meeting held the following week, Mr. McConeghy, slid a sheet of paper across the room to the other board members. Asked by Amy Booher as to what this was, Sean stated this was what they were to accomplish for 2011. Sean had slid a copy of the AWI Distinguished Chapter Program criteria to them. These were to be their objectives and they were going to plan their year around them. The rest is now history.

The team, which includes Program Committee Chair Dan Koonce of Salem Wood Products and Membership Committee Chair Jack Ragan of TigerStop, LLC, successfully grew a networking vehicle in the northwest. The AWI Oregon Chapter obtained their official charter status on March 17 with the approval of the AWI Board of Directors.

Since then, Oregon Chapter members have focused on increasing value and return on investment for their members by following the Distinguished Chapter Program and its guidelines. Among their activities were: filing information about their chapter activities, their scheduling, monthly meetings, assisting their members financially to attend national events, sponsoring a regional event, having a chapter visit, being involved in AWI Adopt-a-Shop, WoodLINKS, and the Woodwork Career Alliance...just to name a few. They also did an amazing job of communicating their activities to members and others.

AWI Chapter of the Year

And, the end result of this... is that with a plan, well thought out and developed at the very beginning of their year, they achieved not only "Distinguished Chapter" status, but have also gained the prestigious designation of "AWI Chapter of the Year - 2011."

While success comes from a team effort, it does need to have a spark and a driving element. For the Oregon Chapter that spark, who has inspired a new chapter in the annals of AWI history, is Sean McConeghy.

AWI Oregon Chapter Secretary / Treasurer Amy Booher accepted the "AWI Chapter of the Year" award from AWI Executive VP Philip Duvic (right) and AWI Chapter Coordinator Greg Bednar.

Twiellenmeier Award

That is why AWI has awarded its highest honor for chapter service, the "Tweillenmeier Award" to Sean McConeghy, President of the new AWI Oregon Chapter. This industry veteran served as the impetus for others to work together to build a success story for the good of the architectural woodwork industry in Oregon.

"This prestigious award recognizes a chapter president who has exhibited superlative leadership and advanced the chapter’s mission and accomplishments," AWI President Robert Stout said in making the presentation. The honors took place during the 59th AWI Annual Convention in Charlotte, NC.

The "Twiellenmeier Award" is named in honor of AWI Past President (1957-1958) Claude Twiellenmeier, who with his wife, Irene, founded many AWI chapters and frequently visited all association chapters.
