Although acknowledging that Covid-19 as it has related to
Colorado was a downer, Patrick Meyers says that even so,
the pandemic prompted his agency to better focus on small
businesses.
“We had to both decrease and then later increase our
budget and programming,” notes Meyers, the executive
director of the Colorado Office of Economic Development
& International Trade.
That varied response came as OEDIT tried to get a feel for
what early on was anticipated to be a decease in State of
Colorado revenue.
But as things worked out, recalls Meyers, state revenue
proved more resilient than anyone in the spring of 2020
could have imagined, buttressed in part by the “unplanned
availability of hundreds of millions of dollars in federal
funds.”
Throughout the year, OEDIT spearheaded any number of
business emergency relief programs, including an effort
offering technical assistance to businesses trying to obtain
crucial Paycheck Protection Program loans.
The department also, notes Meyers, provided funding to
“small and underserved businesses in partnership with
philanthropic organizations via grants, loans, and liquidity
facilities.”
Continues Meyers: “We focused on hard hit sectors in
particular, like creative organizations, artists, tourism-
related businesses, rural movie theaters and restaurants.”
“We also collaborated with the state treasurer, private
sector lenders and private philanthropic actors to create
the CLIMBER Fund, which supports small and mid-sized
businesses across Colorado that were financially strong
pre-Covid,” says Meyers.
Also known as Colorado Loans to Increase Mainstreet
Business Economic Recovery, the CLIMBER Fund has made
available up to $250 million in working capital loans
specifically for Colorado small businesses hit hard by the
pandemic.
Last year was a year with many complex issues confronting
Americans and Coloradoans all at the same time: Meyers notes
that his office “Added a substantial focus on equity and
underserved businesses as some of the long-standing economic
barriers that impact historically socially and economically
disadvantaged communities came even more into focus.”
One of the most durable public/private outreach efforts in
Colorado, the OEDIT program is also unique among state
economic development agencies in the country for its emphasis
on establishing relations with foreign countries, thus the
“International Trade” part of the department’s title.
That emphasis, notes Meyers, plays out in several ways:
“Through our Global Business Development division, we work to
elevate the profile of Colorado’s economy, workforce, and
products on a global stage.”
“For example,” Meyers explains, “we promote foreign investment
into Colorado by leveraging industry and diplomatic networks
and arranging high-level engagements such as outbound
investment missions as well as inbound business and foreign
government delegations.”
Such missions have also seen Colorado Governor Jared Polis
taking trips to and drumming up trade relations for the state in
Australia, India, and New Zealand.
Meyers was appointed as the new head of OEDIT by Polis in
April, taking on a big department with a big agenda.
Formerly working for the popular Denver-based Quiznos
sandwich chain before ultimately becoming the company’s
owner, Meyers has also served as a partner, managing director,
and chief legal officer for the investment firm Consumer Capital
Partners, which is also headquartered in Denver.
He subsequently served for two years, from 2017 to 2019, as
chief of staff to former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper.
What he calls his “blended public service and private sector
background,” says Meyers, has spurred him to seek “diverse
perspectives to find solutions that achieve collective goals.”
“In addition to perspective,” says Meyers, “good people are key.
I’ve found that by investing in and empowering smart, capable
people, we can create high performing teams that accomplish
great things.”
In his new job at OEDIT, Meyers is also heading up a department
that in recent years has placed an increasing emphasis on rural
economic development, a terrain that is sometimes overlooked
by state agencies.
That emphasis is anything but accidental.

COLORADO ECONOMIC
DEVELOPMENT MAY HAVE
BEEN ENHANCED BY
PANDEMIC, SAYS NEW
DIRECTOR
By Garry Boulard, Construction Reporter
06/16/2021
RETURN TO NAVIGATION >
In the last decade, Colorado has invested some 14% more in
rural counties than in the more developed counties of the
Front Range.
“Rural communities don’t benefit from the economics of
scale or diversification that is found in larger, metropolitan
communities,” says Meyers.
In addition, he notes, those same areas face “a lack of
connection to comprehensive economic development and
business support services, and an overreliance on a single
key industry, which makes them less resilient to economic
shocks.”
In response, OEDIT’s principal focus has been not just
trying to connect rural areas of Colorado with the
department’s various divisions, all of which have “programs
and incentives targeted toward supporting rural economic
and business support initiatives,” but also putting those
areas in touch with the services of everything from the
Colorado Department of Labor and Employment, as well as
the Department of Local Affairs, and Colorado Housing and
Finance Authority.
This holistic approach has seen the creation of the Rural
Colorado Covid-19 Regional Resiliency and Recovery
Roadmaps, a $3.1 million technical assistance resiliency
planning grant initiative focusing on relief, recovery,
diversification, and long-term resilience.
Acknowledging that the always-growing Colorado is
consistently regarded by analysts as a “business-friendly
state, Meyers says that reputation is “what gets us ‘at bat’ in
terms of competition.”
And “the more ‘at bat’s’ you get, the more opportunity you
have to win deals.”
Even so, insists Meyers, the state cannot rely alone on its
reputation.
“Industry diversification, a highly-educated workforce, a
centrally located geography and high quality-of-life are the
true drivers of our economic success.”
The “business-friendly” environment, adds Meyers, is the
linchpin that “helps us to keep our existing economic base
and grow it.”

SANTA FE Just weeks before a bill legalizing
recreational cannabis in New Mexico takes effect,
one of the new law’s primary legislative sponsors has
announced she is opening a “full-service” marijuana
law firm.
The disclosure by Sen. Katy Duhigg, D-Albuquerque,
could renew debate over the state’s citizen
Legislature New Mexico is the only state that does
not pay its lawmakers a salary and prompt conflict
of interest questions.
Duhigg said Tuesday the idea of a legal practice
focused on the state’s new weed industry was not on
her mind during this year’s 60-day legislative session
and a special session called shortly thereafter, but
emerged as a possibility in recent weeks.
“Certainly, had I been planning this when the bill
went through I would have disclosed it,” Duhigg told
the Journal.
She also said she would disclose her legal work on
cannabis-related issues if bills dealing with the
fledgling industry are proposed at the Roundhouse in
coming legislative sessions...

CANNABIS BILL SPONSOR
PLANS POT LAW FIRM

John Garcia was all for recreational marijuana being
legalized.
"It's about time,” he said.” I was very excited. I think New
Mexico will be on the forefront of the cannabis industry
going forward.”
As a minority entrepreneur, he saw it as an opportunity
and used his life savings to get started. But now he has hit
a snag.
"We need a place to grow our product,” Garcia said. “Once
we have spoken to the owners of the buildings and made
this offer to them, once they find out we are going to be
growing cannabis they hesitate and back off.”

The COVID-19 pandemic did not dampen workforce drug
testing positivity for marijuana, which continued to
increase last year in the general U.S. workforce, according
to a new analysis released on May 26 by Quest
Diagnostics. The company said it’s the first large-scale
analysis of de-identified results of laboratory workforce
drug tests performed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The overall positivity rate in the combined U.S. workforce
based on more than seven million urine drug tests
collected between January and December 2020 was
down only slightly in 2020 (4.4%) compared to 2019
(4.5%, a sixteen-year high).
Positivity in the federally mandated, safety-sensitive
workforce based on more than 2 million urine drug tests
declined 8.3% (2.4% in 2019 versus 2.2% in 2020) but was
still 10% higher than the 2016 rate (5 years prior).
In the general U.S. workforce, positivity increased 3.8%
(5.3% in 2019 versus 5.5% in 2020) and was 12.2% higher
than in 2016.

The massive Santolina master planned community on the
far southwest side of Albuquerque may eventually also be
the home to both a solar farm and landfill.
Western Albuquerque Land Holdings, the company
developing a project that is expected to see the
construction of more than 38,000 homes, has petitioned
the Bernalillo County Planning Commission to allow for
up to 6,400 acres of the site to be devoted to a solar farm.
The company also hopes to win approval for the creation
of a landfill that would comprise some 300 acres.
Both projects would be developed on the site via special-
use permits.
Plans for the 13,700-acre Santolina project were
approved by members of the Bernalillo County Board of
Commissioners in the summer of 2015, after weeks of
contentious debate sparked by opponents who said the
development, with a town center and several business
parks, would have a damaging impact on the metro area’s
water supply.
The project, which is expected to take up to 50 years to
fully build out, has since been the subject of extended
litigation.
Western Albuquerque Land Holdings has previously been
unsuccessful in trying to obtain approval from the
planning commission to build the solar farm and landfill as
a form of interim land use.
The company had planned to make a presentation to the
planning commission on June 2, but instead asked for a
two-month deferral allowing it to reschedule for that
body’s August 17 meeting.
In the ongoing process to repurpose a 64-acre campus in
Santa Fe, city officials are contemplating the demolition of a
series of buildings deemed as either out of date or with
enough structural issues as to make their upgrading too
expensive.
The campus is the former home of the Santa Fe University of
Art and Design located at 1600 St. Michael’s Drive. The
school closed its doors in the summer of 2018 for financial
reasons.
In the three years since, city officials have been engaged in
an extensive process, with an emphasis on public input, to
reimagine the campus.
Those discussions have primarily focused on turning the
campus into a mixed-use site, with offices, retail, housing,
and public open space.
To that end, a potential partner, the Dallas-based
KDC/Cienda Partners, earlier this year exercised an option
not to proceed with the redevelopment of the campus,
noting, among other things, that it would cost up to $30
million to demolish certain structures described as
“obsolete.”
To make the campus more economically appealing for an
outside developer, the city may ultimately call for the
demolition of up to 16 structures there.
Altogether, the campus has just over 30 buildings of varying
sizes, some dating to the mid-1940s when the site was the
home to the former St. Michael’s College.
Those buildings include structures housing administrative
offices, dormitories, a library, fitness center, studio, and
theater.
An appraisal done for the city in 2017 by the real estate
services and investment firm CRBE noted that the campus

"We have two facilities under design right now and ground
breaking on both of them in August," said Kevin Yearout, the

Yearout declined to name the initial tenants, but added that
the two are in the defense industry and support missions at
Kirtland Air Force Base. He anticipates both of those initial
buildings to be delivered to tenants by the third quarter of

Plans are underway for the construction of a 24,000
square-foot recreation center in Pueblo County,
Colorado that will include multi-use fields and
community gardens.
The project, which has been long in the talking stage,
would specifically go up in the small St. Charles Mesa
community, and as envisioned by county officials, would
provide a home for the Colorado State University’s
Pueblo campus as well as a local 4H Foundation chapter.
As planned, the center will be built at the former 9-acre
site of the El Pueblo Adolescent Treatment Center at 1 El
Pueblo Ranch Way on land purchased by Pueblo County
some 3 years ago.
The mostly vacant site is located 4 miles to the southeast
of downtown Pueblo.
Partial funding for the project was secured in 2016 with
the county’s 1A ballot initiative, which passed with 61%
of the vote. But, according to reports, the additional
funding needed to pay for the actual $3.5 million
construction of the new facility will have to be found
elsewhere.
County officials are now contemplating issuing a
Request for Proposals asking for ideas for center.

Tens of thousands of Denver residents drink, bathe in and
cook with water that comes in through lead service lines.
Denver Water crews are moving as fast as a public utility
that serves 1.5 million homes can to replace the lead pipes
and solder before the soft, toxic metal leeches too much and
gradually poisons the people inside.
It’s an estimated $500 million undertaking for up to 84,000
homes and one that won’t be finished until well into next
decade. But, so far, state health officials say the replacement
program is going well, moving faster than required and that
lead levels have decreased in homes with the service lines

WASHINGTON (June 10, 2021) The Construction
Industry Safety Coalition (CISC) released the following
statement on the Occupational Safety and Health
Administration’s (OSHA) decision to apply an Emergency
Temporary Standard on COVID-19 only to the healthcare
industry.
Continue reading >
Most employers "no longer need to take steps to
protect their workers from COVID-19 exposure in
any workplace, or well-defined portions of a
workplace, where all employees are fully vaccinated,"
OSHA said in guidance updated Thursday.
The agency also published an emergency temporary
standard for U.S. healthcare employers. Employers
included in the emergency temporary standard's
definition must develop and implement a plan to
protect employees from COVID-19 in the workplace,
and they must designate one or more workplace
COVID-19 safety coordinators to implement and
monitor their plans.
OSHA's updated guidance for all industries,
meanwhile, encourages employers to grant paid time
off for employees to get vaccinated. Employers also
should implement physical distancing for
unvaccinated and other at-risk workers in communal
work areas, including limiting the number of such
workers in one place at any given time.
Dive Brief:
Dive Insight:
The updated guidance may help to resolve some of the
questions employers had following a May update from the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that, with
some restrictions, fully masked individuals could resume
activities without wearing a mask. Last month, OSHA
directed employers to follow CDC's guidance on mask use
and social distancing for fully vaccinated workers.
OSHA's June 10 announcement has drawn a range of
reactions from observers. While praising the healthcare
industry temporary emergency standard as a "step in the
right direction," House Committee on Education and
Labor Chairman Robert C. "Bobby" Scott, D-Va., criticized
the Biden administration for not providing other specific
guidance for employers in other industries.
"This ETS is long past due, and it provides no meaningful
protection to many workers who remain at high risk of
serious illness from COVID-19," Scott said in an email
press release...

When I was in school, an F was a failing grade. Having one
or more on your report card could result in undesirable
consequences. However, now that I am past the basic part
of my ongoing education, I feel free to use the alphabet
more liberally.
I mproving safety performance is about three elements
that all start with the letter F. Unfortunately, I don’t find
these three elements in many of the client sites I work
with. Some have one or two, but almost none have all
three. Many misunderstand or under utilize these
elements to the detriment of their improvement efforts.
The three elements are focus, feedback and facilitation.
Most improvement efforts in safety are either unfocused
or too overly ambitious to create focus. Improvement
needs to be divided into doable steps and not an overall
goal of becoming perfect. The most common problem I
encounter is that the client is trying to do too much at
once. The second most common problem is that if they are
not making the desired progress, they think the answer is
to do more rather than to do better.
These two mindsets undermine the majority of safety
improvement efforts where they exist. The alternative to
this is the 3-F approach. Let’s examine each of these and
then see how they work synergistically together.
Focus
I find there is an underlying assumption that workers
know what safety is and how to make it happen. When I
interview workers, I do not always find that to be true.
Few organizations have a defined and shared definition of
safety. Workers can tell me the goals of safety, but the
only methodologies they name are following rules and
procedures or “think before you act.”
To create the kind of focus that promotes improvement,
start by defining what safety is and how to create it. I
recommend a definition such as “know the risks, know the
precautions to address the risks, and take those
precautions every time.” After you have focused workers
on a common definition, you need to determine specific
safety improvement targets. You can’t become perfect at
everything at once, but you can work toward perfection in
a few areas over the near term.

When was the last time you gave your staff the recognition

like the present to celebrate successes.
May 12 was World FM Day. Did you get a chance to
celebrate with your staff? I know it seems like we have a day

bootleggers. However, having a day honoring facility
managers makes it easy to take a little time and recognize

At Building Operating Management, we marked the occasion
by hosting a webcast for our fnPrime members on "The
Importance of Training and Recognizing Your Staff" with
Stormy Friday. In the presentation, Friday mentioned a
Gallup poll showing that 2 out of 3 employees didn't receive
any recognition last year. As she further explained, this
doesn't just mean they didn't get an award, raise or
promotion; these people didn't even receive a thank you.

Employees at some of the biggest tech companies in the
United States would take a pay cut in order to relocate to a
cheaper part of the country and by a wide margin,
according to a new survey.
The survey, by anonymous professional network Blind,
asked more than 12,000 employees at companies such as
Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft Google, Apple and others a
simple question — should you take a pay cut if you work
remotely and move somewhere cheaper?
That question stems from Facebook's recent announcement
that it would allow at least some employees to work
remotely permanently, but may adjust their pay depending
on where they choose to live.
About 59% of tech workers answering the survey said
Facebook was right to cut pay if an employee moves
somewhere cheaper, while just 20% said it was wrong to cut
pay based off location.

The University of New Mexico (UNM) has announced the
selection of a team led by internationally recognized
architecture firm Studio Ma to create a new master facility
plan for its College of Fine Arts. The plan will guide the
continued expansion of UNM’s acclaimed arts education
programming and advance its leadership position in the
statewide arts community. A focus on leveraging strategic
partnerships will promote lasting career success for UNM
students and support long-term economic development.
“I am delighted to announce our alliance with Studio Ma on
behalf of the UNM College of Fine Arts and UNM’s master
facility planning team,” said Amy Coburn, University
Architect and director of UNM Planning, Design and
Construction. “I am confident this collaboration will provide
the strategic guidance to successfully develop long-term
growth plans for the college that improve the student
experience and creative growth. We are thrilled to launch
this partnership with these talented and engaged architects
and planners.”
Studio Ma will collaborate with Albuquerque-based
architecture firm Dekker/Perich/Sabatini and arts
consultant Greg Esser. Together, the team brings a unique
combination of national experience, local knowledge and
strong expertise in campus and cultural design to create a
comprehensive plan for the College of Fine Arts that will help
UNM achieve its future growth objectives.
The plan will encompass five areas: strategic visioning;
partnership development; diversity, equity, inclusion and
belonging assessment; sustainability; and physical design.
This holistic process will establish a thoughtful, valuable
approach to solving root issues and preparing for the
effective implementation of new partnerships and building
projects at UNM.
“The University of New Mexico is a locus in the state’s
vibrant arts community, and we’re honored to partner with a
transformative institution that serves as a key cultural and
economic driver,” said Christiana Moss, FAIA, Studio Ma co-
founder and principal. “Our team is excited to create a
forward-thinking vision for the College of Fine Arts.”

Last summer, Hilti announced that they had developed
their first exoskeleton designed for construction
tradespeople in a partnership with Ottobuck, a
prosthetics, orthotics, and exoskeleton provider. Earlier
this month, Hilti officially released the exoskeleton,
announced more details, and published its retail price on
their website.
The Hilti EXO-01 Overhead Exoskeleton is designed to
reduce the stress of overhead work on the wearer’s arm,
back, and shoulder muscles. The 4.4-pound system straps
around user’s waist, shoulders, and arms to distribute the
weight while providing lift support. The passive device
does not require any external power source to operate,
either, so it will work for as long as you wear it.
Hilti will offer the EXO-01 to its customers in one of two
ways: a one-time fixed cost or a monthly fee. The fixed
cost price is $1,599 which is on the lower end of some
exoskeletons on the market, but more in-line with the
lighter weight category it falls in.
For those interested in a maintenance free solution for
their fleet, each EXO-01 will cost $60 per month with
repairs included in the cost.
Hilti’s core clients are in the commercial construction
industry and I expect this exoskeleton to be largely
purchased by employers on larger construction projects,
rather than individuals. The $1,600 price tag may sound
expensive for a tradesperson, but can be viewed as PPE by
the employer, with the potential to reduce long term
muscle injuries, as well as fatigue.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota has ranked as the
nation’s second-biggest oil producer for nine years, but it’s
on the verge of losing that status because oil production is
soaring in New Mexico.
Texas continues to lead the nation in oil production. The
Permian Basin spans parts of New Mexico and Texas, and it’s
arguably the biggest competition for North Dakota’s Bakken
oil patch. The southern oil-producing region is closer to
major refineries and export terminals, and it attracts
significant drilling and investment within the oil and gas
industry.
The U.S. Energy Information Administration reported
Monday that New Mexico produced 1.16 million barrels of
oil per day in March, the most recent month for which data is
available from all states. North Dakota’s daily oil output that
month was 1.11 million barrels, according to data from the
state Oil and Gas Division.

AGC would like to share an exciting tool to demonstrate the economic impact of infrastructure investment in
New Mexico - ‘AGC Construction Impact Model’.
AGC of America partnered with Brian R. Lewandowski, University of Colorado Boulder to produce a flexible
but simple economic model that calculates the impact on employment and output in each state from various
sizes of investment in different types of construction.
The below link provides an explanation and instructions for using the model.
The table below shows an example of the results obtainable from the model, in this case, the total instate
jobs (construction, supplier and induced jobs throughout the state's economy) and total instate output from a
$1 billion investment over one year in three types of construction: highways, nonresidential buildings, or
other nonresidential structures (infrastructure).
Users can choose from:
In addition to total instate jobs and output, the model shows separately the impact on construction, supplier
and induced jobs, output, and value added (or state gross domestic product, the amount of labor income and
profits added by the investment), and the 10 sectors that receive the most additional spending.

By Robert Thornburgh
As the business landscape continues to evolve, the need to
mentor young professionals becomes all the more critical. The
world is beginning to emerge from the pandemic, and the ways
that we work and interact are changing rapidly. The
fundamentals of how to achieve success in the real estate
industry, however, remain the same. We must ensure that
emerging brokers and property professionals have the
knowledge to adapt and succeed.
I was fortunate to have several mentors who generously guided
my path into commercial real estate, teaching me the importance
of hard work and cultivating long-term relationships. And while
their skill in both brokering and investing made them wildly
successful financially, it was the integrity they modeled in all
aspects of their lives that was vital to my growth. Knowing the
value I received from their direction, I have always felt the
responsibility to give back to those entering the industry.
What I later learned was that my mentors both held prestigious
CRE designations like the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors
(SIOR), which provided them with the tools to succeed -
continuing education, ethics, keeping pace with new trends, and a
global network. I also found that prominent organizations like
SIOR also serve as the perfect vehicle for providing mentorship
opportunities for young professionals.
To be a leader is to embody integrity, passion, and vision, all while
inspiring the best in those around you. A good leader will emerge
based on character and performance, but that first needs to be
fostered making it essential to harness the next generation’s
enthusiasm for continual development. Associations have a key
role to play here.
I have enjoyed a varied career and now hold the position of SIOR’s
Chief Executive Officer. This leading global real estate association
has more than 3,460 members in 42 countries as well as a
dedicated platform for Europe. Our mission is to represent the
most knowledgeable, experienced, and successful brokerage
specialists globally.

FOOD BOXES DISTRIBUTED AT COVID TESTING SITES HELP
THOUSANDS THANKS TO PARTNERSHIP WITH LOCAL SIOR.
A DISCUSSION WITH CHRIS FARRAND, REGIONAL DIRECTOR OF
EMERGENCY DISASTER SERVICES FOR MA/CT/RI AT THE SALVATION
ARMY.
When there is a major disaster, aid is often coordinated and executed
by the very agencies we have come to rely on. But even disaster
relief organizations could not have planned for the level and
duration of the COVID-19 pandemic and the toll it would take on
everything and everyone.
So, what happens when those very agencies are in need themselves?
To whom or where can you turn for assistance? EHH 7
That was the challenge that Chris Farrand, Regional Director of
Emergency Disaster Services and Greater Boston Social Services
Coordination at The Salvation Army, found himself facing.
“The longevity of the disaster made this pandemic very different,”
said Farrand, who often deploys at the front end of a crisis to
mobilize services to begin rebuilding and recovering. “When I usually
deal with disasters, whether it was the Merrimack gas explosions,
the Boston Marathon bombing, or major earthquakes or hurricanes,
I’ve always deployed for a very specific amount of time to provide
immediate emergency critical aid. Upon leaving, I know the existing
infrastructure and services can take over once they’ve had some
time to rebuild.”
However, with COVID there was no singular place to go; no set
timeframe to work around; and no local resources to utilize in order
to establish an infrastructure.
“With everyone and everywhere impacted, that resource base was
gone,” Farrand explained. “All of a sudden, no one could get anything
they needed.”
Disaster feeding, for example, was greatly impacted. Food banks and
pantries that provide daily services for individuals and communities
with food insecurities found their supply gone, and their supply chain
disrupted.

nation’s economy. The SBA’s 22 Veterans Business Outreach
Centers work hard to support these entrepreneurs, and give
them the tools and support they need to live their American

important for our continued economic recovery and growth,”

incorporate sustainable design best practices from the
other nine measures.
Incorporate lessons from other disciplines—such as
psychology, anthropology, and neuroscience—to appeal to
universal biological proclivities and culturally specific
values.
Good design elevates any project, no matter how small, with a

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has posted
updated and expanded technical assistance(link is external) related to
the COVID-19 pandemic, addressing questions arising under the federal
equal employment opportunity (EEO) laws. The EEOC also posted a new
resource(link is external) for job applicants and employees, explaining
how federal employment discrimination laws protect workers during
the pandemic. These publications are provided to help employees and
employers understand their rights and responsibilities at work during
the pandemic.
The expanded technical assistance provides new information about
how the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Genetic
Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) apply when an employer
offers incentives for employees to provide documentation or other
confirmation of vaccination when an employee gets a vaccine in the
community or from the employer or its agent. The technical assistance
answers COVID-19 questions only from the perspective of the EEO laws.
Other federal, state, and local laws come into play regarding the COVID-
19 pandemic for employers and employees.

WORKING WITH A PROACTIVE GENERAL CONTRACTOR IS ESSENTIAL.
Rising materials prices are becoming a bigger and bigger issue in real
estate.
In a May 2021 survey for the NAHB/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index
(HMI), 90% of builders report shortages of appliances, framing lumber and
OSB. And Marcus & Millichap’s John Chang, in a recent investor outlook
video, said that materials prices have skyrocketed this year, with lumber up
by 90% and steel and copper up 50%. Overall materials are 17.2% over the
norm.
Dr. Masaki Oishi, co-founder and chairman of MarketSpace Capital, says the
situation with lumber prices is the worst he has ever seen. But there are
ways to combat these materials increases and shortages.
“There are several strategies that we’ve used in the past,” Oishi says. “A lot
of it is actually driven by the general contractors that we tend to use.”
Oishi says the three key ingredients to a project are time, materials and
labor. “It’s really important to build relationships with contractors who
have the experience, the know-how and the connections to make sure that
the projects can get done and get done in a timely manner,” he says. “That
is so fundamental.”
Oishi says a good general contractor will work with their client and give
them ways to save on time, if not necessarily save money on materials. “If
we can finish a project a week or two earlier, that’s a big savings in and of
itself,” he says. “So there are ways in which we can help each other to keep
costs under control.”
Oishi says these contractors anticipate needs ahead of time and either
procure materials or have contracts to purchase them at a certain price. “So
they’re locked in to some degree,” Oishi says.

HOW ONE INVESTOR IS
MITIGATING THE SURGE IN
MATERIALS COSTS
AS OFFICES REOPEN, THE COVID-19 WORKPLACE MUST
EMPHASIZE FLEXIBILITY, SAFETY, AND COLLABORATION.
As the economic recovery begins and COVID-19 vaccines
become readily available, businesses and real estate
professionals alike are working to determine their post-
pandemic steps in the office market.
The 2020 numbers are bleak. A recent report from Cushman
& Wakefield Chief Economist Kevin Thorpe noted that the
office sector experienced 104 million sf of negative
absorption in 2020 more severe than the impact of the
recession of 2008. In the wake of COVID-19, 1.15 million
office-using jobs were eliminated, with office vacancy rising
from 12.9 percent to 15.5 percent by the end of 2020.
“Office leases are long term,” says Dan Spiegel, vice
president and managing director for Coldwell Banker
Commercial. “We’re in the discovery phase of what the
future of office will be and what its impact on office
property owners will be. In the short term, the pandemic
has driven employees home. The question is, how
comfortable will firms be keeping some of those people
home permanently versus the value of having them back in
the office? Some firms are subleasing space because, in the
near term, they’re not seeing the need for employees to
come back to the office. Other firms are taking space
because they’ve come up for renewal, and they have to
make a decision. We’re still in the early stages of
understanding what the long-term impact will be.”
More than anything, the watchword appears to be
flexibility. The first key will be how companies decide to
bring workforces back to the office. The Cushman &
Wakefield report notes several big-picture factors that will
affect this return, including the trajectory of the virus, the
speed at which vaccines are rolled out, how soon schools
reopen, and government policies...

HUDSON PACIFIC PROPERTIES
NAMED NAIOP 2021 DEVELOPER
OF THE YEAR
We will all remember the year 2020 for innumerable
reasons. The coronavirus pandemic, historic unemployment
levels, a highly divisive election, and civil unrest all shared
the headlines in a year none of us will soon forget.
2020 was also the year that many office employees and
their employers discovered that they could complete their
responsibilities remotely, as COVID-19 protocols limited
face-to-face contact and emptied workplaces. Yet as the
U.S. returns to normalcy with improved pandemic
procedures, antiviral technologies and a rising vaccination
rate, offices are once again filling with employees. In
Southwest Florida, where our firm is located, we are seeing
a resurgence in commercial office space.
When the pandemic shut down offices across the U.S.,
millions of jobs were lost either temporarily or
permanently. In just two months during the second quarter
of 2020, 2.86 million office-using jobs were lost, part of the
biggest decline in the history of U.S. payroll employment.
Since then, well over half of those jobs have been
recovered, and Cushman & Wakefield projects that the
office employment market will have fully recovered by July
of this year.
The pandemic push to work remotely left many people
wondering if traditional offices would ever truly return once
the world regained a sense of normalcy. While the work
from home trend certainly helped many organizations
discover new efficiencies, some employers are
rediscovering the purpose of the office. While technology
has allowed business leaders to manage teams remotely,
smartphones, notebook computers and virtual meetings
have not been able to simulate other benefits of working in
an office environment.

FORT SUMNER, N.M. (KRQE) NASA’s Scientific Balloon
Program kicked off 18 flights with their spring Fort
Sumner campaign. The second flight took off on June 8.
This is the program’s first major flight campaign since the
pandemic, according to NASA. NASA says the team is
supporting science and technology demonstration
missions with six balloon flights scheduled from the end of
April through mid-June.
The June 8 test flight was for the Columbia Balloon
Scientific Facility and included four piggyback missions:
The Balloon Observation of Microburst Scales, or
BOOMS, BALloon-Based Observations for sunlit Aurora,
or BALBOA, Experimental Module for Iterative Design of
Satellite Subsystem, or EMIDSS, and another tech
demonstration flight, according to NASA. The flight lasted
15 hours and reached an altitude of 117,300 feet. The
balloon landed northeast of Chino Valley, Arizona.
NASA says the scientific balloons offer low-cost, near-
space access for suspended payloads weighing up to
8,000 pounds to conduct tests and scientific
investigations such as astrophysics, heliophysics, and
atmospheric research, and depending on the mission,
flight durations can run hours to multiple days or weeks
for longer-term tests and data collection.
According to NASA, most of the missions will fly on heavy-
lift, zero-pressure scientific balloons, with some as large
as a football stadium when fully inflated. NASA says the
balloons have open ducts hanging from the sides to allow
gas to escape, and to prevent the pressure inside the
balloon from building up during gas expansion as the
balloon rises above Earth’s surface, according to NASA.

SPACE MUSEUM GARNERS
GRANT TO DIGITIZE 60S ERA
SPACE FILMS
By KRWQ
06/15/2021
The New Mexico Museum of Space History is pleased to
announce that it was recently awarded a “One Small Step
grant from the SPACE 3.0 Foundation, a 501(c)3 charitable
organization. The grant, which was applied for by Museum
Curator Sue Taylor, will allow the museum’s curatorial
department to digitize more than a dozen space related
16mm films from the 1960s that reside in the museum’s
collection. The films to be digitized include several
associated with the Gemini and Apollo programs.
“After more than 30+ years in the space industry, I've
noticed that small sums can make a real difference. SPACE
3.0 has launched the “One Small Step” grant program to
identify projects that can fill in the gaps to space history
preservation. Ideas such as digitizing historical documents,
collecting an oral history, or expanding the resources found
in our archive,” said Scott Sacknoff, the foundation’s chair.
“Digitizing and color correcting these films from the golden
age of human spaceflight will not only help preserve them,
but will also make them available to researchers and the
public.”

Mall giant Washington Prime Group, which owns 100
malls including Albuquerque's Cottonwood Mall, has filed
for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.
Based in Columbus, Ohio, Washington Prime is in
forbearance on an interest payment that was due Feb. 15.
"It’s business as usual at Cottonwood and our guests,
tenants, community partners and vendors/contractors
will see no change," Cottonwood Mall general manger
Debra Sherman said in a statement to Business First.
Sherman said she can't speak about the bankruptcy filing,
but pointed to new partnerships and growth at
Cottonwood.
The mall is planning to add at least two new food court
concepts to its lineup of tenants, as well as Upscale
Burgers and Shakes, which should open within the next
month said Sherman, who declined to disclose the name of
the other tenants. She did say they are locally owned and
should be open later this summer.
According to New Mexico Secretary of State filings,
Washington Prime Group L.P. is listed as the manager of
Mall at Cottonwood II LLC...

The impact of Covid-19 has greatly been felt across the
commercial real estate industry. Many businesses had to
shut down, while others moved to working remotely. Few
new businesses opened due to the uncertainty the pandemic
brought. During this time, there was little need for buying or
renting commercial buildings. However, as agents know, the
impact of crises on real estate does not last forever.
As the world begins to return to normal, workers are going
back to the office and businesses are beginning to open. The
demand for commercial real estate is growing, and with this
growth come new possibilities for innovation. Below, 11
members of Forbes Real Estate Council predict how the
commercial real estate landscape will react to the effects of
the global pandemic.
