Building Management Hawaii April/May - (Page 4)

Editor’s Note 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. aimee@tradepublishing.com 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.
