GOVERNOR’S VETOES OF
PANDEMIC AID
By AP News

RETURN TO NAVIGATION >
The head of the department tasked with regulating
recreational-use cannabis in New Mexico said medical
cannabis patients should not expect purchase limits to be
expanded, despite a letter from a group of New Mexico
medical cannabis producers suggesting otherwise.
Last week, during an interview for the collaborative
podcast Growing Forward, New Mexico Regulation and
Licensing Department Superintendent Linda Trujillo said
until commercial cannabis sales begin next April, medical
cannabis patients will still be limited to 230 units in a
rolling 90-day period. The Medical Cannabis Program,
overseen by the state’s Department of Health, defines a
unit as one gram of smokable cannabis, or 0.2 grams of
THC in extracts, derivatives or edible cannabis products.
Representatives of both DOH and RLD confirmed that
both agencies agree that medical cannabis purchase limits
will continue to be determined by DOH. The Cannabis
Regulation Act also seems to confirm that even after
commercial cannabis sales start next year, medical
cannabis purchase limits will be determined by the DOH.

Americans are feeling better in general about financial
matters, with a discernible uptick in consumer sentiment.
According to a new survey conducted by the company Ipsos,
consumer confidence has reached the 60.7 mark out of an
index topping off at 100.
That number is only the latest of a series of index results
showing an improved national attitude via the economy, and
is a full 10 points higher than the confidence level as seen
last year during the worst of the pandemic.
The survey, released by Ipsos and the publication Forbes
Advisor, even showed an increase in optimism among those
who are currently unemployed, with a positive index result
of 55.3, compared with a previous response of around 49.
The consumer confidence levels, perhaps not surprisingly,
are significantly higher at 62.8 for those who are currently
employed, and 61.8 for part-time workers.
The trend lines for all three categories, full-time workers,
part-time workers, and those not currently employed, have
all increasingly improved since early January.
Those trend lines in many ways reflect reality, with only
547,000 jobless claims filed in late April, down from 4.5
million in the spring of 2020.
The overall trend, reports the Forbes Advisor, “signals that
Americans believe there are brighter days ahead.”
The latest survey comes as Covid-19 vaccinations are
becoming more widely available and a federal stimulus check
of $1,400 on average has been mailed to millions of
Americans.
Anticipating a more buoyant rest of the year, respondents to
the Ipsos/Forbes survey believe by a 62% to 32% margin
that the economy will “rebound quickly once restrictions are
lifted on businesses.”
A somewhat smaller 55% of respondents said they were in
favor of fully reopening the economy as soon as possible,
even if the pandemic is not fully contained. Last summer 40%
of respondents said they were in favor of an immediate
reopening.
The Gross Domestic Product this spring is nearly at the
same level as it was in the months before the Covid-19
shutdown, according to a new report just issued by the
Commerce Department.
That report is showing that the GDP grew by a healthy
6.4% between January and March of this year, just a slight
1% less than where it stood in the robust pre-pandemic
days of late 2019.
Driving the new numbers is a 4.9% jump in the purchase
of goods over late last year; a 2.1% increase in services;
and a 1.3% increase in business investment.
The latest Commerce Department numbers, say the Wall
Street Journal, are evidence of “what is shaping up to be a
rapid, consumer-driven recovery this year.”
Consumer spending in the first quarter of this year, adds
the New York Times, is helping to “set the stage for what
could be the fastest economic growth in decades.”
A separate set of numbers released by the Commerce
Department measures the economic recovery through
the prism of filings for jobless benefits. Those numbers
reached a historic peak last summer at just below 1.5
million. As of late April, the filings are down to 553,000.
The nation’s unemployment rate has dropped from just
under 15% last April, the highest since the depths of the
Great Recession, to exactly 6% today.
Economists looking at the Commerce Department figures
say they are indicative of the kind of growth that will
probably only increase for the rest of 2021.
But those same economists say they worry that the
robust growth could cause the economy to overheat, with
a measurable increase in consumer prices.
In a statement, Gina Raimondo, the Secretary of
Commerce, said, “America is moving forward, but we can’t
stop now.”
Raimondo said continued growth will be spurred by “big,
bold actions that invest in our families, our workforce, and
our infrastructure,” allowing the U.S. to “out-compete on
the global stage for decades to come.”

Today, Intel announced we will build on our 41-year
history of investment in New Mexico by devoting $3.5
billion to equip our operations in the state for the
manufacturing of advanced semiconductor packaging
technologies. This expansion will create an estimated 700
high-tech jobs and 1,000 construction jobs in Rio Rancho
and support an additional 3,500 jobs in the state. When
taken together, the investment and the expansion of the
workforce represent a significant boost to the company’s
annual economic impact on New Mexico, which has been
estimated at $1.2 billion (based on 2019 data). With
planning activities under way and construction scheduled
to begin in late 2021, Intel expects this investment to
create additional economic opportunities for New
Mexico.
One of the focuses of the Rio Rancho expansion is
Foveros, Intel’s breakthrough 3D packaging technology
that enables vertical stacking of compute tiles within a
package. Advanced packaging techniques like Foveros
allow integration of diverse computing engines across
multiple process technologies with performance
parameters similar to a single die, but with a platform
scope that far exceeds the die-size limit of single-die
integration. These technologies will improve product-
level performance, power and area while enabling a
complete rethinking of system architecture and helping to
meet increasing computing needs across a variety of
industries.

U.S. Hub For Chip Modernization Will Create 700 High-
Paying Jobs
RIO RANCHO, N.M. Intel plans to invest $3.5 billion in its
New Mexico operations and hire more than 700 new
workers to create a domestic hub for advanced
semiconductor manufacturing at its fabrication facility in
Sandoval County, the company and Gov. Michelle Lujan
Grisham announced today.
In what will be one of the largest capital investments in New
Mexico, Intel plans to modernize facilities to accommodate
its Foveros technology, a breakthrough innovation to meet
increasing customer demand for stronger microprocessing
performance.
“Intel’s $3.5 billion investment in New Mexico will create
700 new jobs in the next three years and establish the Rio
Rancho campus as the company’s domestic hub for advanced
semiconductor manufacturing,” Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham
said. “With this exciting development, we are already seeing
the benefits of this year’s legislation expanding LEDA,
generating high-quality and high-paying jobs for New
Mexicans. The state and Intel have a 40-year partnership,
and today, with innovative economic development tools and
global demand for this technology, we can celebrate a new
generation of workers and job growth at Intel’s New Mexico
manufacturing plant.”
“A key differentiator for our IDM 2.0 strategy is our
unquestioned leadership in advanced packaging, which
allows us to mix and match compute tiles to deliver the best
products. We’re seeing tremendous interest in these
capabilities from the industry, especially following the
introduction of our new Intel Foundry Services,” Keyvan
Esfarjani, Intel senior vice president and general manager of
Manufacturing and Operations, said. “We are proud to have
invested in New Mexico for more than 40 years and we see
our Rio Rancho campus continuing to play a critical role in
Intel’s global manufacturing network in our new era of IDM
2.0.”
The Rio Rancho investment solidified after Gov. Lujan
Grisham and Economic Development Cabinet Secretary
Alicia J. Keyes asked state lawmakers in a special session to
reform the Local Economic Development Act (LEDA) to
allow for a portion of construction-related Gross Receipts
Tax to be rebated back to companies for large, significant,
job-creating projects.
Gov. Lujan Grisham signed the measure into law on April 7,
2021.

Plans for building a new 100,000-square-foot air cargo
facility at the Albuquerque International Sunport have
been put on hold indefinitely.
The Sunport confirmed to Business First on Thursday,
nine months after issuing a request for proposals for an
architect for the project, that the air cargo facility is on
hold but would hopefully be revisited in the future.
"We’ve had quite a few large-scale projects come to a
head in recent months, which required us to prioritize in
a way that allowed us to best utilize our limited
resources," Stephanie Kitts, public information officer
for the Sunport, wrote in a statement to Business First.
"We do hope to revisit this project soon."
Some of the projects that are garnering attention at the
Sunport are a taxiway reconstruction, a centralized
baggage system as well as the Orion Center, Kitts said.
Albuquerque City Council unanimously approved a
proposed lease and development agreement with Theia
Group, an aerospace company with plans to bring 1,000
jobs to town through the Orion Center earlier this
month. The lease and development agreement is for a
114-acre plot adjacent to the Sunport, Business First
previously reported.
Business First reported in July that the city wanted to
expand the air cargo facility after it was "completely out
of space" at its current digs. The Sunport's 50,000-
square-foot cargo facility has national tenants like
FedEx, UPS, 10 Tanker and Matheson.

More than $1.7 million has been approved for security
and safety improvements on the 243-acre Hobbs
campus of New Mexico Junior College.
That funding is coming in the form of a capital outlay
approved earlier this year by members of the New
Mexico State Legislature and subsequently signed into
law by Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham.
The $1.7 million is part of a larger $8 million in approved
capital outlay projects that Lea County is receiving, with
$1 million of that amount targeting the renovation of the
Lea County Courthouse, located at 100 N. Main Street in
downtown Lovington.
That Art Deco building was constructed in 1936,
extensively remodeled in 1957, and listed on the
National Register of Historic Places in 1987.
Another $1 million is going to build an addition to the Lea
County Detention Center at 1401 S. Commercial Street.
Located at 1 Thunderbird Circle, New Mexico Junior
College was founded in 1966 and has a current
enrollment of around 3,300 students.
Last fall state voters approved $4 million in General
Obligation Bond C funding for the renovation of the
school’s Watson Hall, as well as the construction of new
sidewalks, tunnels and shade structures.
State funding has been secured for a waterline upgrade
project at the Moriarty Municipal Airport in central New
Mexico.
The New Mexico Economic Development Department has
announced that it is providing up to $283,000 for the
project. That support is coming through the department’s
Local Economic Development Act funding.
Located at 506 George Applebay Way in Moriarty, the
airport is the third busiest of its kind in the state, with more
than 75 hangars. The airport underwent a nearly $2 million
runway resurfacing upgrade in 2010.
The $283,000 marks the first time that the Economic
Development Department has awarded a grant for a rural
infrastructure project.
In a press release, the department noted a new focus
allowing it to assist “communities with improvements to
publicly owned industrial properties.”

Up to $500,000 in state funding has been secured for a
project that will transform the long-standing
Waterworks Building on Little Walnut Road in Silver
City.
Plans have long been in the works to transform the
structure into a new way station for those walking and
riding along the Continental Divide Trail, which cuts
through Silver City.
The sandstone building was completed in 1887 and for
decades was the operating facility for Silver City’s
municipal water system.
Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in
1984, the structure is made up of a one-story section
that initially used to house boilers and steam-powered
pumps, along with a two-story section that served as the
engineer’s residence.
The $500,000 is coming in the form of a capital outlay
that was approved earlier this year by members of the
New Mexico State Legislature and signed into law by
Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham.
The project will see the construction of museum, retail
and event space inside the Waterworks Building.
Late last year a group called the Southwest New Mexico
Arts, Culture, and Tourism, received funding through the
state’s New Mexico Economic Development Department
to also build an education pavilion at the site.
That funding came through the department’s Outdoor
Recreation Division.
Work is expected to begin later this year on the building of a
new luxury apartment complex in northeast Albuquerque.
The planned Markana Uptown will see the construction of a
single, six-story building housing 243 units.
To be built off Americas Parkway near the Hilton Garden Inn
in an area of both hotels and offices, the project will also
include co-working space, a fitness center, swimming pool,
and patios.
The residential units will vary from studios to one-, two-, and
three-bedrooms, with sizes ranging from 589 square feet to
1,226 square feet.
The project belongs to Legacy Development & Management,
which already has two other apartment projects in the state:
the completed Markana in the 6300 block of Alameda
Boulevard in Albuquerque, and the Markana de Santa Fe,
which is still under construction.
General plans call for work on the Markana Uptown to begin
by late this summer with a fall 2022 completion date.
Legacy Development & Management was founded in 1978
and is based in Albuquerque. The company has long
specialized in apartment, hotel, and office development,
among other focuses.

The cessation of legal proceedings between two
northern Colorado gaming towns is paving the way for
construction of a large $50 million whiskey resort.
The towns of Central City and Black Hawk had plans to
litigate the meaning of a 22-year-old intergovernmental
agreement that designed to manage growth in both
places.
More to the point, that agreement suggested that
neither city could develop a significantly large gaming
entity to the detriment of the other.
Central City is roughly just over a mile to the northwest
of Black Hawk.
When the Black Hawk City Council early last year gave
its approval to plans for the development and building of
what is being called the Lake Gulch Whiskey Resort, a
massive 20-acre whiskey production facility and resort,
Central City officials decided to go to court.
Those officials claimed that the resort, to be operated by
the Proximo company, which produces Tincup Whiskey,
among other brands, would have a negative impact on
business in Central City, not to mention the wear and
tear from traffic on the Central City Parkway.
Now Central City has decided to discontinue legal
proceedings against Black Hawk, while also signing on to
a new agreement focusing on the development of
unincorporated land surrounded the two towns.
As planned, the Lake Gulch Whiskey Resort will
comprise the largest whiskey distillery in Colorado, and
will also include hotel space, several restaurants, and an
outdoor amphitheater, among other amenities.
Based in Jersey City, New Jersey, Proximo introduced its
84 proof Tincup Whiskey brand in 2014, which is named
in honor of the one-time Colorado mining town of
Tincup.
That town, in turn, referenced the tin cups used by mid-
19th century gold miners.

A new pocket park, the first of perhaps many, may soon be
built in Scottsdale.
Plans are underway for the construction of the park at the
intersection of North Drinkwater Boulevard and East Indian
School Road, just blocks to the southeast of Old Town
Scottsdale.
That busy intersection is populated with apartment, office,
and commercial development.
The park will go up on land owned by the city and will include
a shade structure, seating, and bike space.
Funding to the tune of $150,000 was approved last year by
members of the Scottsdale City Council for the project.
The seating will be designed by local sculptor Michael Beitz.
Funded by a group called the Downtown Cultural Trust, the
idea behind the project is to show how such a public space
can be integrated into a larger urban environment.
Work is scheduled to begin on the project later this summer
with an early 2022 completion date.
Pocket parks, often measuring less than 10,000 square feet,
are proving to be increasingly popular uses of small public
spaces.
According to the book Pocket Park Design, urban planners
have turned to the concept of the pocket park as “modern
cities become denser and buildings taller.”
Such parks are relatively inexpensive to build and can also be
used as infill development.
Scottsdale city officials have said that, depending upon the
success of the pocket park at North Drinkwater and Indian
School Road, more such public spaces may be built in the
future.

During its first-quarter 2021 earnings presentation,
Skanska announced that its year-over-year quarterly
revenue decreased by 10% overall to 34.4 billion
Swedish krona ($4.1 billion), with its construction
operations experiencing a 12% reduction in revenue to
29.4 billion krona, when factoring in currency effects.
During the company's conference call with analysts,
Anders Danielsson, Skanska's president and CEO,
pointed to the strength of its construction business,
despite the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic,
highlighting a gross operating margin of 722 krona, a
23% increase from the first quarter of 2020. This
strength in profitability, Danielsson said, reflects the
success of the company's strategy of selective bidding
and focus on management.
Bookings in the construction business in the first quarter
of 2021 totaled 34.9 billion krona, with 9.6 billion krona
in the U.S. The company's overall backlog was 193.4
billion krona, with 80.1 billion krona of backlog in the
U.S.

In the company's earnings presentation, it said that the

There are dates that stick in the collective memory: 1776,
1861, 1929 and now 2020, which could well be a year that
future generations in the construction industry look back
on as a major turning point. The social, economic and
cultural ramifications of COVID-19 won’t be fully
understood for years to come, but the challenge of the
pandemic has caused rapid change across the design
sector.
Even so, the revenue shortfall many observers had
predicted for design firms has not happened to the extent
feared, according to results of the 2021 Top 500 Design
Firms ranking. The aggregate revenue for listed firms
actually rose to a record $104.77 billion in 2020—an
increase of 1.48%.
However, the raw numbers don’t tell the whole story. The
2021 list features the return of Fluor Corp., which was
unable to release financials for last year’s ranking due to a
federal probe of project charges; and Worley, which failed
to file in 2020. Their inclusion added more than $6 billion
to the total. The median revenue for firms actually fell, to
$64.95 million on this year’s ranking from $67.94 million
for the 2020 list—a drop of 4.4%. Backlogs took the
biggest hit. Almost three times as many firms are
reporting a lower backlog compared to a year ago, with
127 noting a decline this year versus just 45 on the 2020
ranking.

The continued rise in materials prices continues to plague
the construction industry, according to a new report
issued by the Associated General Contractors of America.
Materials prices overall have seen a nearly 13% jump
between March of 2020 and March of this year.
Noting also a 3.5% jump in prices since February, the AGC
notes that both price index increases “were the highest
recorded in the 35-year history of the series.”
The increases, ironically, come as the industry is feeling
more bullish regarding business in general, notes the
publication Construction Dive.
“To build things, contractors need willing owners to
finance them,” continues the publication, adding that
those owners may prove harder to come by in an
environment dominated by delays in the global supply
chain and extended delivery times.
A county contractor in Lincoln, Nebraska is reporting a
300% increase in steel prices; in Michigan, the cost of
lumber is up by nearly 250%; while a Nashville
construction company has seen a doubling of lumber
prices this spring.
In Arizona, lumber prices have roughly tripled, prompting
some projects to be put on hold.
According to the latest Producer Price Index released by
the Bureau of Labor Statistics, softwood plywood
products nationally are up by over 101% in the last
months, followed by softwood lumber with an 83% jump.
Copper wire and cable saw a nearly 27% jump between
February and March; with hot rolled steel bars up by
20.3%.
Compounding the problem is the availability of materials:
A survey issued by Dodge Data & Analytics notes that
some 71% of responding contractors said they are
currently experiencing difficulty getting materials.
The survey also notes that the “supply chain challenges
may suggest long-term effects that are harder to rectify.”
For all of that, continues the Dodge survey, some 65% of
civil contractors are optimistic about the ability of the
market to provide new work, up from 58% from the last
quarter.

Sometimes, what you can’t see can have a big impact on a
roof’s performance.
While roofing underlayment and ventilation are typically out
of sight, they should never be out of mind. This article shines
the spotlight on how two oft-overlooked components of a
roofing system—underlayment and ventilation—can
influence roof performance.

One of the most overlooked items in terms of waterproofing
the roof deck is sealing the seams on the substrate boards of
steep-slope roofing projects. This has caught the eye of
several building code agencies who have already
implemented codes to seal these seams with a roof deck
flashing tape.

After three year or so of planning, Yellowstone Landscape
has made the move to open a branch office in Los Lunas.
The new location offers the company closer proximity to
some clients in the growing Valencia County village.
"We’ve begun working on more projects in south
Albuquerque and Los Lunas, including the Facebook data
center and Huning Ranch Homeowners Association,"
Marketing Director Joseph Barnes said in an email to
Business First.
While less than 30 miles, the drive down Interstate 25 to
the Facebook data center can take more than 45 minutes
depending on traffic. And so the addition of a location
south of the metro area also represents a cost-savings
move, according to Regional Vice President Jon
Richardson.
“As our presence grows there, it makes sense for us to
have a physical location, and to continue our practice of
hiring technicians based in the local community," he said
in a news release. "This allows us to better serve our
customer needs by saving on our commuting time, gas and
wear and tear on our equipment.”
The location is Yellowstone's third in New Mexico, and
joins offices in Albuquerque and Santa Fe. David Kincaid,
a 20-year veteran of the landscape industry, will act as Los
Lunas site manager, according to a company news release.
Kincaid has been with the company for about two years
the release said.

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.

Impact Tool click here.

The COVID-19 pandemic has been a threat like no other in our
lifetimes with over 22 million people infected, millions more
unemployed, and draconian lockdowns that will forever change the
way people work, as well as the way real estate is managed and
used. And while the virus presented a challenge for leaders with no
road map, many of the principles of great and inspiring leadership
have survived the test of time.
Veteran Chicago developer, Bob Wislow had just started work on
Fulton East, the first development project with his new company,
Parkside Realty, launched August 1, 2019, with partner Camille Julmy.
(The duo is noted for founding U.S. Equities Realty in 1978, which
merged into CBRE in 2014, with almost 500 employees and 17 million
square feet of real estate leased and managed in Chicago.)
Wislow had decided that Parkside Realty would provide a new focus
for the next chapter of his career—building wellness. “Like LEED
became the big thing, our thought process was that the next big
thing was going to be wellness in buildings,” he says. Then the
pandemic hit.
As a 40-year board member of Rush Hospital and vice chairman of
Rush University, Wislow says he was learning about the potential
impact of the pandemic early on and realized his company was at a
point with Fulton East’s construction that they could “COVID-proof”
the building. “We could add that to our already health-conscious
building to differentiate our product and to bring the best ideas to
the marketplace when the building opened,” he says.
When it opened to leasing in the summer of 2020, Fulton East
became Chicago’s first post-COVID-19 workplace outfitted with
state-of-the-art wellness technology and the first new construction
installation of the Toe-To-Go (T2G) hands-free elevator, as well as
the first multi-story office building to employ airPHX disinfection
technology, used by hospitals and shown to reduce viruses, bacteria,
and mold on surfaces and in the air by up to 99%.

SIOR's newest Snapshot Sentiment Report, providing feedback
from hundreds of member-brokers on the performance of
transactions during Q1 2021, revealed skyrocketing levels of
confidence, laying the foundation for a groundswell of new
business in 2021 and beyond.
With vaccinations increasing and economies opening up, deals
are progressing at a rate not seen since before the pandemic. The
report revealed 74% of deals are progressing on-time, more than
doubling since Q2 2020. On-hold transactions have dropped to
17%, and only 9% of transactions were cancelled, the lowest
number in nearly a year.
Market confidence is highest since the start of the pandemic,
rising to 7.3 (out of 10). Industrial confidence is at 8, up from 6.9 in
Q4 2020. Office confidence rose to 5.9 in Q1 2021, up from 4.7 in
Q4 2020.
Leasing activity is now exceeding pre-pandemic levels. Positive
leasing activity is a big reason for this significant boost in
confidence. 62% of members reported more activity, compared
with 60% in Q4 2019 and only 29% last quarter.
“If there is any doubt the commercial real estate market still has
significant runway for growth, the results of this report can put
that uncertainty to rest,” says SIOR CEO Robert Thornburgh, SIOR.
“This is direct, on-the-ground feedback from the best brokers in
the industry, from a range of markets, and they all tell the same
story: deals are happening at a far greater pace than we’ve had in
over a year, and the outlook ahead is the brightest we have seen
since the pandemic reshaped our world.”

select safer materials for humans and the environment
design and build with healthier materials
understand the differences between material
transparency and chemical avoidance
address barriers in obtaining buy-in from peers, clients,
and the market
collectively strengthen the market signal for safer
alternative products
Materials selection is one of the most difficult sustainability
goals to track and integrate into the design and delivery
process.
Opting for healthier materials shouldn’t be a lofty goal for the
well-resourced few. Architects should encourage the selection
and availability of materials that are better for our human and
environmental health. While case studies exemplifying
healthier materials projects have been dominated by an all-or-
nothing approach, the entry-point for choosing healthier
products is lower than most think.
The new AIA Healthier Materials Protocol was created to
provide clear, practical methods and tools to navigate this
maze and effectively translate awareness to practice. The
document provides a stepwise method for setting healthier
materials goal and criteria definitions, product selection,
tracking, and specification, no matter the size and scope of the
project. It also suggests tools and provides examples from
case studies to assist with each step.
The user-friendly guide is written to meet you where you are

DESCRIPTION: Work and life regularly can routinely collide for many
workers. Work in construction can be especially challenging at times
for workers, managers and owners. The new challenges of a rapidly
changing economy combine with old hazards like injury risk, long work
hours, workplace stress, and off-the-job obligations for an unhealthy
mix. A strategic plan for culture building is a requirement if your
business wants to attract, retain and support the healthiest, most
engaged workforce. What does the latest population health science say
about optimizing work and work design for better health outcomes and
improved bottom lines? Can we translate this research into policies
and practices so work can actually “work” for all of us? And how can we
address some of the most urgent threats in our industry – like
substance misuse and rising suicide rates? This is the critical, must-see
session for workable strategies and real-world solutions from NIOSH.

WIDESPREAD COMMODITY
SHORTAGES RAISE INFLATION
FEARS
By Alan Rappeport and Thomas Kaplan, The New York Times
WASHINGTON — In a normal year, Ron Whalen, vice president of Roger
B. Kennedy Construction, receives one or two “Dear Valued Customer”
letters from suppliers notifying him of price increases for certain
materials. This year, a stack of 30 such warnings sits on his desk in
Orlando, Fla., alerting him that things as diverse as lumber, drywall,
aluminum and steel are going to cost 10 to 20 percent more.
Continue reading >
AGC continues to make resources available – which you can share with
owners – about construction materials price spikes. A new version of
our Construction Inflation Alert will be released later this week – stay

Heavy, Highway Construction Safety Partnership
The Associated Contractors of New Mexico (ACNM) and the New
Mexico Occupational Health and Safety Bureau (NM OSHA),
mutually recognize the importance of providing a safe and
healthful work environment for New Mexico’s heavy highway
construction workforce. The HHCSP Agreement was established
to encourage, acknowledge and assist New Mexico’s heavy
highway construction industry in their efforts to ensure a safe
and healthful workplace for employees engaged in the
construction of New Mexico's public infrastructure.
This initiative represents a welcomed agreement and affords a
partnership for voluntary compliance alternatives to the
traditional NM OSHA enforcement activities. NM OSHA and
ACNM believe that maintaining a focus on safety will save lives,
time and dollars. The intended outcome of this focus is a
reduction of employee injuries, illnesses, deaths, equipment
damage, workers’ compensation and insurance costs, down
times and monetary penalties. However, the overall goal of this
partnership is the protection of life, limb and property.
Goals of the Partnership
What is the process?
This multi-platform partnership consists of three (3) levels;
Silver-entry level, Gold-transitional level, and Platinum-superior
level.
The first step is to submit an application packet to ACNM.
Next, the verification committee will review the application
packet for determination of platform level.
Once the verification committee has completed the application
review process, an on-site visit is conducted.
Upon successful completion of the verification process, a
company is eligible for the partnership benefits for their
qualifying platform level.

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the entire country and the world.
Most state and local governments in the United States issued stay-at-home
orders and imposed business restrictions on nonessential services to slow
the spread of the virus. This caused an economic slowdown that initially
concerned many state and local lawmakers.
Revenue projections from various sectors, such as restaurants, tourism and
the entertainment industry, were lowered. Budgets were restructured to
increase health services and reduce expenditures in order to maintain
balance. State and local governments also turned to Washington for
additional assistance, and they received it.
President Joe Biden signed into law the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan
Act of 2021, which is intended to provide additional relief to both the public
and private sectors impacted by the pandemic. State, local and tribal
governments received a total of $350 billion in federal relief from the act.
The amount of relief received by each state and local unit of government
can be found here:
State and local governments will receive these funds through the
Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds, created by Section 9901
of the American Rescue Plan Act. This section also establishes the
guidelines and appropriate use of these funds. There are common
guidelines for state and local governments to follow in applying these
funds to cover pandemic related costs and to stimulate economic activity
by December 31, 2024. These common guidelines include:

Thinking of packing suitcase, grabbing your laptop and
setting up shop in a new locale? You’re in good company!
One-fifth of adults in the U.S. moved during COVID-19 or
know someone who did, says Pew Research, whether for
health and safety reasons, or simply because the space
demands of full-time work from home increased the
urgency for more square footage.
Since the onset of the pandemic, countless office workers
have fled crowded apartments in the urban core and are
spreading out in more remote, spacious locations dubbed
“Zoom towns.”
These hot spots have some things in common: roomy
homes and yards, lower costs of living, and proximity to
outdoor activities, like hiking trails or the waterfront.
Ownerly published a list of top Zoom towns, and some cities
are offering incentive programs to attract remote workers:
Tulsa Remote offers $10,000 to remote workers who
relocate to the city, with the goal of “enhancing Tulsa’s
talented and successful workforce community by bringing
diverse, bright and driven individuals to the city for
community building, collaboration and networking.”
The Savannah Technology Workforce Incentive reimburses
relocation expenses for qualified technology workers
relocating to Georgia’s Chatham County, including remote
workers of technology firms located elsewhere or those
relocating to take a position with a technology company in
the region.

Space Mysteries: Did an unidentified flying object really
crash land at a New Mexico ranch in 1947, only to be
hushed up by the government?
There is a spaceship that looks like a flying saucer in
Roswell. Thousands of motorists drive past it every day,
and hundreds of people go inside. It’s on North Main
Street in this southeastern New Mexico city, its metal skin
gleaming as it basks in the glow of the sun. Its neon
lighting burns into the retinas of those who view it
throughout the evening, and it’s rather hard not to
admire. After all, aside from its striking looks, who doesn’t
fancy a burger every now and then? That’s right: This
spacecraft is one of the city’s McDonald’s restaurants.

We are on the cusp of a new Space Age. The space industry anticipates
more advances in the next decades than we have seen since the launch
of Sputnik in 1957.
The space industry is becoming less sci-fi and more mainstream
thanks to a new shift toward direct-to-consumer services. Things like
video calls, inflight WiFi, navigation, driverless navigation and weather
monitoring were initially conceived as space technologies, and are now
used every day down on Earth. Additionally, large internet-providing
fleets of commercial satellites are being deployed, bringing the space
economy into the lives of half the planet on a near constant basis,
aiding a multitude of applications, such as monitoring water quality
and geological change.
Before this growth in private space investment, space revenues were
primarily from government and telecom industries. Since 2009,
funders have invested a cumulative $16 billion in space projects, and
that investment only continues to grow.
Our state has some of the best conditions to welcome the space
industry’s explosive growth. Here’s why:

State funding has been secured for a waterline upgrade project at the
Moriarty Municipal Airport in central New Mexico.
The New Mexico Economic Development Department has announced
that it is providing up to $283,000 for the project. That support is coming
through the department’s Local Economic Development Act funding.
Located at 506 George Applebay Way in Moriarty, the airport is the third
busiest of its kind in the state, with more than 75 hangars. The airport
underwent a nearly $2 million runway resurfacing upgrade in 2010.
The $283,000 marks the first time that the Economic Development
Department has awarded a grant for a rural infrastructure project.
In a press release, the department noted a new focus allowing it to assist
“communities with improvements to publicly owned industrial
properties.”
