Then and Now: Associated General Contractors building

The Associated General Contractors of America formed in 1918 to represent commercial contractors who build everything from schools and office buildings to roads and bridges. In 1919, Spokane builders started their own chapter, which was officially chartered in April 1921.

For almost 100 years, the Inland Northwest AGC, a nonprofit trade association, has advocated on behalf of builders, subcontractors and industry service providers. For many years, the group had offices in the old Spokane Hotel at Sprague Avenue and Washington Street.

In 1958, the group built their own office building at 4935 E. Trent Ave. It was a modest building, with just a lounge, conference rooms, three offices and a catering kitchen.

The small building is an example of midcentury modern architecture from the firm of Royal McClure and Tom Adkison, who graduated in the same class at the University of Washington and practiced together in Spokane from 1947 to

General Contractor Overhead And Profit And AOB Insurance Scams

A storm is rising, and it is not the type which causes damage to homes and vehicles. It causes damage of a much more insidious nature. Following a storm or other natural disaster, canvassers hired by the “hail cartel”—lawyers or opportunistic general contractors—can be found blanketing a neighborhood and knocking on doors.

“I’m here to get you a new roof,” the canvasser says. They tell the innocent homeowner that he or she has roof damage that they may not have noticed and that they are entitled to 20% more for “general contractor overhead and profit,” even if no general contractor is necessary. They locate and fabricate damages which either did not exist or were pre-existing and ask the homeowner to sign an Assignment of Benefits (AOB) and promise them a new roof at no cost and with no hassle on their part.

This is repeated thousands of times across entire

How to Hire a General Contractor or Renovator for Residential Construction Projects

In the last 10-15 years, the industry of Residential General Contractors has taken a beating by the media. Television, maganizes and articles have waged war on the image, credibility and trust of General Contractors. This is something that as a Home Owner, you must first be aware of.

15 Years ago, there were 3 shows that dealt with residential construction:

-This Old House

-The New Yankee Work Shop

-Bob Villa’s Home again

These 3 shows gave Home Owners an “inside” look into construction techniques and methods, offering plenty of advice, knowledge and wisdom. I suppose they had a loyal following amongst hobbyists, contractors and weekend warriors. But it didn’t appeal much to the general masses. After all, not everyone is interested in learning how to cut Crown Moulding or how to select the best router bits.

Along came a show on HGTV called Holmes on Homes. The entire premise of … Read More
