Niagara Worldwide at NewNorth

NIAGARA — New North Inc.’s 10th annual “New North Summit” featured jobs expert and author Edward E. Gordon as the keynote speaker. The conference, sponsored by BMO Harris, was held on Friday, Dec. 6 at the Radisson Hotel & Conference Center in Green Bay.

Nick Ghere (Site Manager of the Niagara Development Site) along with Shelly Ghere (Director of Finance) and Don Jacobsmeyer (Director of Real Estate) for Niagara Worldwide were on hand to meet and discuss the regional influence on Niagara managed properties.

With holdings in the Outagamie, Manitowoc and Marinette Counties, Niagara relies on consistent and engaging government programs to spark associated development.

ASHWAUBENON — It’s not the best of times, it’s not the worst of times.

That would be one way to sum up the message Friday at New North Summit 2013. Presentations at the 18-county economic development organization’s annual meeting highlighted many positive economic aspects in the region and a few worrisome ones, most notably, an existing and potentially growing skills gap.

“The underlying foundation is talent,” said Ed Gordon of Imperial Consulting Corp., the keynote speaker. “Skills are the new currency for this decade.”

Gordon credited New North and other regional organizations, such as the Northeastern Wisconsin Manufacturing Alliance, Bay Area Workforce Development Board and NewEra educational collaboration, among others, for their efforts in addressing the need for better-qualified workers.

“We need more well-educated and well-skilled Americans. You’re doing a lot. You need to do more,” he said. “For the first time in history, the generation retiring is better educated than the generation that follows.”

Gordon said the United States has a rising tide of vacant jobs, which grew to 7 million last year, including 33,500 in Wisconsin. Two-thirds of jobs that will need filling in the future will be to replace retiring baby boomers. Also, he said, many long-term unemployed have stopped looking.

“The number of people leaving the labor force exceed the number of jobs we created,” he said. “Unless we better educate half of our population, instead of 25 percent, we won’t be able to preserve our freedoms.”

The skills gap could be worse. The economy could be booming and the need for workers even greater, but Dennis Winters, chief of the Office of Economic Advisors in the Department of Workforce Development, said Wisconsin businesses still are waiting for “that big pop” that normally follows a recession. Four years after the recession ended, it hasn’t happened.

Uncertainty is the biggest single deterrent to capital investment by businesses, from government budget battles, sequestration and debt limits to the Affordable Care Act. As a result, Winters said, business is lowering its expectations.

Green Bay – Governor Scott Walker joined business, education, and community leaders at the New North Summit in Green Bay today.  The annual event is an opportunity to collaborate and network with the goal of stimulating the economy and building a stronger region.

“This is a great opportunity for people to come together, share ideas, and learn about regional growth opportunities,” Governor Walker said.  “When people are invested in their community and motivated to address the issues and challenges employers face, everyone benefits.”

Some of the topics addressed in this year’s summit include, ways to develop the workforce and close the skills gap, economic trends, how to become a fast-growing company, how to connect to the global marketplace, and the importance of sustainability practices to the bottom line.

Bidding a Church in a Small American Community – By Eric J. Spirtas

leave a comment »

I was hired to bid on a small community church.  This is no “small” order.

Once a doctor was telling me as I was getting my appendix out, “Don’t worry Eric, your safe with me, I remove 8 appendix’s a day… Yeah Doc, but this is my appendix!

Well, this may be your Church, and while it may not be Lambeau Field or Mile High Stadium, there is a process and a program to assist an owner in the efforts of  properly preparing the site for its next responsibility.

“Care, Custody and Control”!

No matter where the demolition, you have the administrative busy work:

  1. Permitting
  2. Utility Terminations
  3. Asbestos
  4. Environmental Items
  5. Communicating with the Police, Fire, DOT, Local Municipality

Then you have the work itself:

  1. Labor
  2. Materials
  3. Equipment
  4. Transportation
  5. Disposal

Specialized equipment and circumstanses even drive the pricing higher.  Salvage or below grade work, the details to every demolition are different. 

Where I think a demolition contractor can shine is in the ability to share ideas with the client.

  • Special ways to minimize fencing costs
  • Salvage tricks that can gain dollars for the client and minimize disposal costs
  • Think GREEN with the disposition of materials (“Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!”)
  • Communicate and share your detailed bid… this may trigger ideas in a wise clients mind – promoting savings
  • The job is about the CLIENT, not about the contractor.

I really think that a contractor has reached a level of complacency if they only bid by “Unit Pricing”.  There is a level of creativity that is lost and a level of efficiency that is surrendered if the contractor is not figuring the project “Long Hand” considering all of the issues that may occur and pricing the project accordingly.

For assistance with bidding, pricing, bid presentation, demolition and related construction project management, do not hesitate to contact Eric J. Spirtas.
