Contact Bonnie McIntyre at 545-4242 or visit Hidden Cache As you all can probably guess, the information and photos published in Building Industry magazine is just a fraction of what we receive. In the past, we’ve tried a smattering of ways to get this extra content to you, and with technology advancing so quickly, it’s always a learning process. Well, we recently discovered that in the digital version of the magazine, we are able to add extra pages seamlessly, making it an attractive repository for such material. So that’s exactly what we’ve done in this issue. Since it’s more or less a pilot project at this point, we’ve added only a few pages as supplements to 1) a News Beat story and 2) the Kauai feature. Look for this icon, and the QR code and link will take you to what we’ve entitled BI Bonus pages.

For more information, visit For now, we’ve kept it simple and the BI Bonuses consist of extra pictures we were unable to use with their respective stories. For example, in conducting research for the Kauai feature, I visited a number of projects on the island and took an abundance of photos that normally would go unpublished. This way, you’ll be taken on mini-tours of active jobsites on the Garden Island. BI Bonus can be accessed only through the digital edition of Building Industry, which can be found by visiting We hope you enjoy the added value this venue provides. Be sure to look for more of them in future issues. And if you have something you want to share, you know where to send it: Mahalo, Contractors Association of Kauai • Hazwopper – eight-hour training.
