Committee reviewed and approved the Webber
Administration's proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2022.

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) A new estimate shows that
successive rounds of federal economic relief since the
outset of the coronavirus pandemic will deliver an
estimated $18.9 billion in money and services to New
Mexico.
The Legislature’s budget and accountability office
published the estimate Monday. The analysis will be
presented in greater detail Thursday to members of the
legislative finance committee.
The federal aid to one of the poorest states in the nation
dwarfs the annual general fund spending of $7.4 billion by
the New Mexico state government.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) New Mexico’s population
grew by 2.8% over the last decade, making it one of the
slowest growing states in the West, according to the first
numbers released Monday from the 2020 census.
The Census Bureau said that overall, the national growth
rate of 7.4% between 2010 and 2020 was the second
slowest in U.S. history.
In the West, only Wyoming had a slower growth rate than
New Mexico, where the count put the resident population
at just over 2.1 million. That included 58,343 more people
than a decade ago but not enough to gain an additional
congressional seat. Neighboring Texas and Colorado
gained seats as a result of their population increases.

New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham announces her decision to sign a law that legalizes
recreational marijuana outside the state Capitol building in Santa Fe, N.M., on Monday, April 12,
2021. The Democratic governor described the law as a victory for social justice and a potential
boon for economic development. Her decision makes New Mexico the seventh state since last
November to legalize adult possession and sales of cannabis for recreational use. The legislation
gives the governor strong oversight through the governor's appointed superintendent of the
Regulation and Licensing Department. (AP Photo/Morgan Lee)

More than $1 billion in new funding is being made available
by the Department of Transportation for any number of
infrastructure construction projects nationally.
In announcing the Rebuilding American Infrastructure with
Sustainability and Equity grants, DOT Secretary Pete
Buttigieg said the funding is designed to make “needed
investments in our communities’ future.”

As part of his $2.3 trillion infrastructure plan, President
Biden is calling for up to $100 billion to be spent building
new broadband systems, particularly in impoverished or
rural areas that are underserved.
According to a White House fact sheet, the President
wants to ensure that “every American who wants to, can
afford high-quality and reliable broadband internet.”
The plan is also designed, says Administration officials, to
reduce the cost of broadband, with a construction
schedule expected to take around 8 years.
Biden has pointed out than more than 30 million
American currently have no access to broadband, while in
some urban and suburban markets broadband access is
too expensive for many.

A move is on to ease zoning regulations in states, cities,
and towns across the country in an effort to build more
affordable housing.
The Biden Administration is looking at the existence of
what are known as “exclusionary zoning laws,” which are
thought to restrict housing in some areas.
Those laws, which include specific lot size requirements as
well as prohibitions on multifamily housing, have not only
made it more difficult for many projects to obtain
approval, they can also lead to an increase in the cost of a
given project.
As part of the President’s $2.3 trillion infrastructure plan,
the Administration has proposed a $213 billion affordable
housing effort calling, in part, for a competitive grant
program designed to do away with exclusionary zoning.
The grant program is expected to be initially funded at the
$5 billion level.

BIDEN INITIATIVE LOOKING
AT ZONING LAW POLICIES
By Garry Boulard, Construction Reporter
04/23/2021
President Joseph Biden is meeting with Congressional
members of both parties in an effort to secure the passage of
his historic $2.7 trillion infrastructure legislation.
In proposing his bill, the President said that he wanted to
focus not only on the construction and upgrading of the
nation’s roads, highways, and bridges, but also electric
vehicle research, affordable housing, and broadband
infrastructure.
“I am prepared to compromise, prepared to see what we can
do, what we get together on,” Biden remarked to reporters
before meeting with a group of lawmakers.
Some lawmakers have suggested that a more acceptable
infrastructure plan would see the spending of up to $800
billion to be entirely focused on just infrastructure matters.
Texas Senator John Cornyn, in an appearance on the
program Fox News Sunday, remarked: “There is a core
infrastructure bill that we could pass with appropriate pay-
fors like roads and bridges and even reaching out to
broadband.”
“I think,” continued Cornyn, “that’s the part we can agree
on.”

The Tome jail dates to the mid-1870s when the town

structural remains of a larger building that was once the
Valencia County Courthouse.
Made of stone walls, the former 375 square foot jail with a

The New Mexico Supreme Court recently decided to let
stand a Court of Appeals decision that the Engineer’s
Office says would rob the state of its ability to regulate
water rights in New Mexico.
Now, the state engineer is asking the Supreme Court to
reconsider that ruling.
The legal path leading to the problem is complicated and
centers on the state’s negotiated settlement with the
Navajo Nation on allocation of water rights from the San
Juan River.
That settlement, approved by Congress, was challenged
by the San Juan Agricultural Water Users Association.
In upholding the settlement in 2018, the Court of Appeals
reasoned that the state of New Mexico “lacks ownership
claim” in water within its borders and that the settlement
agreement “preempts” state law.

AECOM announced the details of its strategy for
reaching environmental, social and corporate
governance objectives today.
The "Sustainable Legacies" program is focused on
sustainable development, social outcomes for the
communities where the company works, net-zero carbon
emissions and enhanced governance, the company said
in a release.
"We believe infrastructure creates opportunities for
everyone, and directly integrating ESG principles with
our technical excellence and capabilities puts us in the
best position to deliver sustainable legacies for a better
world," said CEO Troy Rudd.
Dive Brief:
Dive Insight:
ESG is an investment approach that screens publicly traded
companies for predefined objectives based on
environmental, social and corporate governance criteria. It
shuns firms that don't adhere to such principles or those that
operate in industries that are philosophically opposed to
them, such as fossil fuels.
ESG also considers the impact firms' actions have on the
environment and society, the policies they have in place to
promote social equity, such as diversity among board
members and executives or workers' rights, and
transparency and clear reporting in corporate governance
and operations.

WASHINGTON (April 23) The Republican Party has
drafted an alternate infrastructure plan to the one
proposed by President Biden. This proposal would cut
infrastructure spending by up to 75% $568 billion over
5 years as opposed to Biden's $2.3 trillion American Jobs
Plan.
The party plans to pay for the bill by increasing user fees
for electric and hybrid vehicle owners that don't pay as
much or any gas tax, repurposing unspent money from
COVID-relief legislation and allowing state funding
matches for infrastructure with the additional COVID-
relief funding the states received.
Check out the following quick comparison of these plans:

One of the toughest things to deal with on any project can be
the relationships between owner and general contractor or
the general contractor and subcontractor. In the worst case
scenarios, tensions between those relationships can
sometimes lead to one of those parties packing up their tools
and walking off the job before it’s complete. But that action
may make the situation a little hairier than you might expect,
if you don’t do it the right way.
In a recent post from The Lien Zone, a great source for
construction law related advice, Patrick Barthet offers some
steps to take before calling it quits. You might think it’s as
easy as making the GC or Owner just find a replacement to
finish your work, but the contract you signed may get you
into some legal or financial trouble if you’re not careful.
The article, titled “Think Twice Before Walking Off a Job,”
offers four steps to take before taking drastic steps. First and
foremost, you need to read and understand what the
termination requirements are in your contract and provide
the necessary notice. Second, you need to make sure that
you have been paid the correct amount, whether itss too
little or too much.

On a typical Earth Day, the construction industry is
usually called out equally for its role as both a
sustainability leader and as a leading offender when it
comes to the size of its carbon footprint.
This year, however, modular construction—which is both
green and more efficient—can be recognized for its role in
the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. When hospitals
rushed to increase capacity and schools and colleges
required virus testing centers in 2020, the obvious choice
for many was modular construction. Hospitals and schools
were then able to quickly add life-saving equipment to
heal the sick and test those in need in a matter of days.

Come late next summer, a new 13,000-square-foot lab
home for the New Mexico Department of Agriculture will
be wrapping up construction.
Albuquerque-based HB Construction Inc. is taking the
lead on the New Mexico Department of Agriculture's
expansion on the New Mexico State University campus.
HB Construction will work on building and renovating a
total of three buildings. The project has broken ground,
HB Construction said.
The new ground-up lab being constructed for the
Department of Agriculture will include space for
chemistry, metrology, seed and petroleum research. HB
Construction will also renovate the department's current
chemistry lab and space for its marketing department,
which will encompass about 5,000 square feet, said HB
Construction.
The Albuquerque general contractor said it was awarded
the contract through a request for proposals procured
through New Mexico State University. A cost for the
project was not immediately disclosed.
Joining HB Construction is another Albuquerque-based
firm in Dekker/Perich/Sabatini as the architect and lead
designer on the building. Albuquerque-based Bohannan
Huston Inc. and Austin, Texas-based EEA Consulting
Engineers are also working on the project as engineers,
according to HB Construction.

A list of actions employers can take to maintain a healthy
workforce and compliance.
While the COVID-19 pandemic is challenging for all
organizations, manufacturers have had the especially
daunting task of keeping their employees safe while keeping
their businesses open. In the last 13 months, hundreds of
deaths and tens of thousands of COVID-19 cases have been
reported in the manufacturing sector alone.
Due to the nature of the job, manufacturing employees face
an increased risk of COVID-19 transmission. Unlike other
industries where businesses could temporarily shut down or
allow employees to work-from-home, manufacturers needed
to remain open and employees on-site to produce essential
products despite local infection rates.
Manufacturing employees frequently work in close quarters
and, potentially in warmer environmental conditions that
create varying capabilities for wearing masks and
maintaining social distancing. There may also be a variety of
socioeconomic factors that increase COVID-19 risk. For
example, may have a high proportion of workers with
language barriers that can interfere with or make it more
difficult to access information or resources. Workers may
also feel the need to underreport symptoms in order to
continue working because they may not be able to afford
taking time off if they don’t receive paid sick leave.
Recognizing the urgency of creating optimal safety measures
in manufacturing, federal and state officials in states such as
California have given new power to regulatory bodies for
COVID-19-related issues. The following is a checklist for
manufacturers to help them maintain both a healthy
workforce and compliance with regulatory standards.

Though Santa Fe had all the trappings of a magnetic housing

more attractive opportunities.
In an attempt to help balance its affordable housing stock,
Santa Fe imposed an inclusionary housing ordinance in 2004

Without sales of New Mexico federal land to the oil and gas
industry, the state could lose out on millions of dollars in
revenue every year.
The Bureau of Land Management, a sub-agency of the U.S.
Department of the Interior, announced it would not hold any
oil and gas land lease sales during the second quarter of
2021 as the DOI was amidst a review and potential overall of
the federal government’s oil and gas program.
Finalization of a January lease sale in New Mexico was
postponed, while the April sale was cancelled and the
planned July sale was listed as paused, per the BLM’s online
register.
The register listed a potential sale in October, but no
documentation was available as of Tuesday.
In a statement from the BLM, it contended the pause on
lease sales would allow the agency that manages federal
lands throughout the American West to review its policies
and ensure they align with the agenda of the administration
of President Joe Biden, who took office in January, in
addressing pollution from fossil fuels.

companies, citing unmet obligations to plug at least 29
abandoned wells in western New Mexico, remove trash
and debris and pay penalties for trespassing on an expired

The lawsuit against BC&D Operating and Dominion
Production Company is the sixteenth in a campaign by the
agency to increase accountability for cleanups among
natural resources companies that lease state land.
Efforts to reach BC&D Operating and Dominion
Production Company for comment were unsuccessful.
The companies have no clear online listings, and corporate
registrations with the state of New Mexico do not include
contact information.
In a statement, New Mexico State Lands Commissioner
Stephanie Garcia Richard indicated that her agency is
seeking voluntary compliance with lease provisions
before resorting to litigation.

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.

A CONVERSATION ABOUT THE PANDEMIC’S IMPACT ON THE
NEWEST INDUSTRIAL DARLING
In recent years, cold storage has become a very active property
sector as investors warm to the property type amidst strong
demand. Contrary to popular perception, food and beverage
logistics is driving demand far more than COVID-19 vaccine
distribution. Popular even before the pandemic, online grocery
shopping has grown by leaps and bounds in the past year.
In a February SIOR Chicago Fireside Chat, SIOR Chicago Chapter
2021 President Adam Marshall, Senior Managing Director,
Industrial Logistics, Newmark, discussed cold storage trends with
Jake Finley, CEO, Karis Cold Storage. The following are highlights
of their discussion.
Marshall: What is the current state of the cold storage industry?
Finley: As demand for cold storage has grown, supply has not
kept pace—and the inventory is aging. The average U.S. cold
storage facility is anywhere from 37 to 42 years old. You’re not
seeing speculative development, and some older, antiquated
buildings that were used for cold storage in the past may have
fallen out of the category altogether because they are obsolete.
Supply is constrained and vacancy is next to nothing.
Marshall: What are the primary markets for cold storage?
Finley: Demand for cold storage facilities, as for dry warehouses,
is population-driven. The primary use of cold storage is to bring
food close to the population. Many food products will not last
long unless refrigerated or frozen, of course. Port markets also
need cold storage since many fruits and vegetables are imported
and protein products are exported.
Marshall: How has the rise of e-commerce groceries changed the
cold storage supply chain?

SBA ADMINISTRATOR
GUZMAN ANNOUNCES
APPLICATION OPENING FOR
$28.6 BILLION RESTAURANT
REVITALIZATION FUND
WASHINGTON - SBA Administrator Isabella Casillas Guzman today
announced the U.S. Small Business Administration will begin
registrations on Friday, April 30, 2021, at 9 a.m. EDT and open
applications on Monday, May 3, 2021, at noon EDT for the
Restaurant Revitalization Fund. The online application will remain
open to any eligible establishment until all funds are exhausted.
“Restaurants are the core of our neighborhoods and propel
economic activity on main streets across the nation. They are
among the businesses that have been hardest hit and need
support to survive this pandemic. We want restaurants to know
that help is here,” said Administrator Guzman. “The SBA has
focused on the marketplace realities of our food and beverage
businesses in designing the Restaurant Revitalization Fund to
meet businesses where they are. And we are committed to equity
to ensure our smaller and underserved businesses, which have
suffered the most, can access this critical relief, recover, and
grow more resilient.”
Established under the American Rescue Plan, and signed into law
by President Joe Biden on March 11, 2021, the Restaurant
Revitalization Fund provides a total of $28.6 billion in direct relief
funds to restaurants and other hard-hit food establishments that
have experienced economic distress and significant operational
losses due to the COVID-19 pandemic...

SBA LAUNCHES
SUPPLEMENTAL TARGETED
ADVANCE FOR SMALL
BUSINESSES HARDEST HIT
BY COVID-19
WASHINGTON The U.S. Small Business Administration launched
a new round of Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) assistance
called Supplemental Targeted Advances on April 22, 2021 that
will provide $5 billion in additional assistance to 1 million small
businesses and nonprofit organizations that have been most
severely affected by the economic effects of the COVID-19
pandemic. The Supplemental Targeted Advance program is the
latest SBA relief program to launch as part of the American
Rescue Plan Act on March 11, 2021.
“Many of our nation’s small businesses are still struggling to
recover from the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and
we’ve found that the smallest businesses -- the majority of which
are minority-owned -- are hurting the most. The SBA’s
Supplemental Targeted Advance program aims to reach those
businesses with 10 employees or less who need our help today,”
said SBA Administrator Isabella Casillas Guzman. “The
Supplemental Targeted Advance funds will help us make sure
that no small business falls through the cracks or gets left
behind. This program is a crucial part of our efforts to bring
businesses back, create jobs and build an equitable economy for
everyone.”

UNEMPLOYMENT RATES
POINTS TO INDUSTRY
RECOVERY, SAYS ABC
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 28, 2021 9:50 AM
WASHINGTON, April 28—Construction employment is holding its
own, although it is not back to pre-pandemic levels, according to
state-by-state analysis of U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data
released today by Associated Builders and Contractors for March
2021. These data show that on a year-over-year basis, the not
seasonally adjusted construction unemployment rates rose
nationally and in 33 states, fell in 15 states and were unchanged in
two states, Oklahoma and Washington.
National NSA construction employment was down 80,000 from
March 2020. Seasonally adjusted construction employment
remains 182,000, or 2.4%, below its February 2020 peak, before the
impact of the COVID-19 pandemic began to influence employment
numbers. This compares favorably to national SA nonfarm payroll
employment, which was 5.5% below its February 2020 peak.
The national NSA construction unemployment rate went from 5.5%
in February 2020 to 8.6% in March 2021, up 3.1%. Over that same
period, 12 states had lower estimated NSA construction
unemployment rates, 37 had higher rates and one (Utah) remained
unchanged.
“The combination of better weather and vaccine availability is
already improving the health of both the economy and the
construction industry,” said Bernard M. Markstein, Ph.D., president
and chief economist of Markstein Advisors, who conducted the
analysis for ABC...

An Orlando-based architect raves about his trip to Spain
through AIA’s Architectural Adventures travel program
Dan Farmer, AIA, is principal of Farmer Architecture in Orlando,
Florida, specializing in commercial, retail and industrial
projects. He’s also one of many architects who’ve taken
advantage of AIA’s Architectural Adventures travel program,
which offers a series of expert-led, architecture-centric tours
to destinations around the world. As a traveler on the
Barcelona excursion, Farmer shares his thoughts on what
made this tour stand out among the many he’s taken during
his architectural career.
My kids know, when we go on vacation, that I’m going to give
them an architectural lecture. I’ve been an architect for more
than 40 years; I can’t think of anything I want to do more than
this, and I’ve been lucky enough to get paid to do it. For me to
go on a trip and not experience the architecture is not even an
option.
I’ve wanted to visit Barcelona for decades; I studied Antoni
Gaudí in college. Honestly, if you had just taken me to the
Sagrada Familia and then sent me home, I would’ve been
happy. But it was so much more than that. The experts that led
our tours and gave our instructional lectures were extremely
qualified. They were college professors; architectural
historians; city planners...

construction of New Mexico's public infrastructure.
This initiative represents a welcomed agreement and affords a

Despite its traditional roots, construction has started to transform into a
digital industry. Building information modeling, geospatial technologies,
prefabrication and modular construction, drone services, augmented-
reality wearables and other technologies are increasingly becoming a
larger and more crucial part of successful, efficient, profitable construction
projects.
“An Overview of Emerging Construction Technologies,” a NAIOP Research
Foundation report, details the recent advances and new horizons in
construction technology. Authors Andrew McCoy, Ph.D., a professor in the
Department of Building Construction at Virginia Tech, and Armin Yeganeh,
Ph.D., a postdoctoral fellow at Virginia Tech, talked to NAIOP about what
these technology advances mean for construction firms and commercial
real estate companies.
Your report acknowledges that construction has historically lagged
behind some other industries in technology adoption. What is
compelling construction companies to adopt new technologies now?
McCoy: Right now adoption is being driven by a combination of things. We
have a labor shortage, a materials shortage and a crisis in the supply chain.
Conditions are primed for people to say, “We can’t do it the way we used
to.” We are hearing people say, “We can’t stick build anymore.” So I think
you are going to see rapid change. People are going to embrace technology,
especially off-site technology. It’s already happening with mechanical
contractors. They can come in and do a laser scan of the facility, then go
back into their model, and prefabricate every piece of ductwork so that it
shows up at a jobsite in pallets that say exactly where everything goes.

Colorado legislators are poised to introduce what is being
referred to by proponents as the “Energy Performance in
Buildings Act of 2021.” The draft bill, which mandates
energy benchmarking and performance standards, requires
owners of most commercial, multifamily and public
buildings over 50,000 square feet to collect and report the
building’s energy use to the Colorado Energy Office (CEO).
The building will then be given an Energy Star score
compared to other buildings. By 2026, owners of buildings
that do not meet a certain score must make improvements
that lead to a 15-point Energy Star score increase, a 15%
energy use intensity reduction, or other options. Failure to
reach energy reduction mandates will result in hefty civil
penalties for commercial and multifamily building owners.
Buildings exempt from the penalty provision include
buildings owned by the state, municipalities, counties,
special districts, school districts and state institutions of
higher education.
The primary proponents of this bill are the CEO, which is a
non-regulatory department within the Governor’s office,
and the Southwest Energy Efficiency Project (SWEEP). This
proposed legislation was set in motion in 2019 when
lawmakers established a regulatory process to cut
Colorado’s greenhouse gas emission by half before 2030
and by 90% by 2050. Governor Jared Polis announced policy
recommendations with the release of the Colorado
Greenhouse Gas Pollution Reduction Roadmap in January of
this year...

It was back in 1610 when Galileo Galilei made the first
telescopic observation of Mars and ever since, the
fascination with the red planet for scientific research has
grown astronomically. Over the course of the next
century, astronomers have discovered many features of
the planet ranging from its rotation and tilt to polar ice
caps and the dark patch on its surface known as Syrtis
Major Planum, now known to be a large volcanic
province, visible in small telescopes.

Aircraft design company Virgin Galactic has recently
unveiled its first Spaceship III craft called the VSS Imagine.
This ship is clad almost entirely with mirrors and looks like
a design straight out of a science fiction film. Similar to
some of those sci-fi spaceships, this design can quickly
camouflage in new environments since the mirror reflects
the colors around it.
