Building Management Hawaii April/May - (Page 4)
A few months ago, BMH magazine held a reader
contest to win $50. The contest asked entrants to
share what topics they’d like to see in BMH. One of
the recurring ideas was concrete restoration. In fact,
the winner of the $50 Foodland gift card (Brent Dolan,
CMCA® of Kihei, Maui) suggested that we cover spalling.
Recently, president of IREM Hawaii Steven Sofos also
mentioned that a past issue of BMH included a concrete
spalling article that was “very informative and showed
how the work is done and what the before and after
looked like. As they say, ‘a picture is worth 1,000 words.’”
We took your suggestions to heart, and decided to revisit the topic with seven
articles on concrete restoration—from prevention with newer buildings to rescue
from “goo” found in leaking elevator pits. The articles are written by experts in the
field and offer project examples, do’s & don’ts and “concrete” tips.
We open this issue with a lift by “vertical transportation” (aka elevators and
escalators). Three top elevator companies share with us the industry’s new technology
and energy-saving options. And, we also touch on equipment breakdown and fire
insurance. Do you know what your policy covers? Turn to page 24 to find out!
We received many good suggestions from the contest, and we’ve added many of
them to our 2013 editorial calendar. Thanks again for your insider feedback.
Correction: In our Feb/March 2013 article, “Saving Money & Art,” we should
have credited Hawaii Energy (rather than Energy Industries) with being the ratepayerfunded conservation and efficiency program under the direction of the Hawaii Public
Utilities Commission. We regret the error.
