BUILD Q3 2022 4 News • A quarter (25%) say customers are becoming more interested in eco-friendly practices • Only 20% of electricians know how to make their work more sustainable • Expert shares advice for tradespeople looking to reduce their environmental impact ustainability is a growing concern for customers when hiring tradespeople, but four in five (80%) UK electricians are unaware how to make their work more eco-friendly. A new study by ElectricalDirect, the specialist retailer of electrical products, found that a quarter (25%) of clients are now more eco-conscious than they used to be, and over the last year, more than a fifth (22%) of electricians have been directly asked about their environmental impact. However, the vast majority of workers are not sure how to become more sustainable and more than four in five (82%) say they don’t feel confident discussing the topic with customers. This lack of awareness could explain why so few electricians actively try to reduce their impact on the planet. Fewer than one in five (18%) say they consciously try to work sustainably. For some, finances are a major factor. One in six (17%) say they can’t afford to become more eco-friendly due to the extra costs involved. Nevertheless, with many customers now favouring tradespeople with green credentials, electricians could potentially start to miss out on work if they don’t make changes. Almost two in five (37%) Brits try to only use companies who are socially and environmentally responsible, so there’s a strong business case for sustainability, on top of the wider benefits. Four in Five UK Electricians Don’t Feel Confident Discussing Sustainability S The UK regions where trade customers are growing more interested in sustainability is pictured above: To help tradespeople who are looking to become more environmentally friendly, ElectricalDirect has partnered with William Hobbs, sustainability and recycling expert at MyJobQuote.co.uk, to provide some expert tips. 1. Source local parts To reduce your carbon footprint, look for parts and materials produced and sold closer to home. 2. Wherever possible, recycle Instead of throwing waste away, consider how to reuse or repurpose it. If it cannot be reused, recycle as much as possible so it doesn’t end up in landfill.

5 Q3 2022 BUILD Dominick Sandford, Managing Director at IronmongeryDirect and ElectricalDirect, said: “During the first few months of the pandemic, the job security of construction workers was thrown into serious doubt, and sadly tens of thousands of employees lost their jobs. However, the latest ONS data shows that the situation has really turned around. “At its peak in summer 2020, almost 30,000 workers were made redundant over a three-month period (July-September). “In contrast, the data released this month shows that just 3,000 people in the industry lost their jobs between March and May. While this is obviously still 3,000 too many, it shows a significant improvement. “In fact, 3,000 is the lowest that this figure has ever been, since records began thirteen years ago in 2009. “Elsewhere, average wages are on the rise, which, in the context of a major cost of living crisis, will be a welcome relief to many, albeit slight. Typical weekly earnings rose by £20 to £714, which is the second highest average ever recorded. “It’s really good news that redundancies are on the decline, and pay is increasing, but this pattern will have to continue in the coming months in order to offset the financial hardship that the country is currently experiencing.” UK Construction Redundancies Fall to Lowest Figure Since Records Began 3. Reduce plastic and chemical use Making simple but practical swaps on small items you use daily can reduce your overall environmental impact without costing too much. Dominick Sandford, Managing Director at ElectricalDirect, said: “Sustainability has been a hot topic for a number of years, and that’s certainly not going to change anytime soon, so it’s no surprise that customers are now considering the environmental impact of any work they have done in their homes. “In order to meet these changing requirements, electricians should review their materials, equipment and methods to see how they can become a bit greener, as doing so can benefit both their business and the planet.”

6 BUILD Q3 2022 Feb22606 As the winners of both the above award for the Costa del Sol region, and the ‘BUILD Design Innovation Award’ for 2022, BlueSky Riviera has made a name for itself with its consistent, beautiful, and practical home designs. These homes, villas that its clients commission as a primary dwelling or holiday house, will always reflect the latest and greatest of architectural techniques and sensibilities, whilst not forgetting the roots of traditional architecture, resulting in something modern yet timeless. BlueSky Riviera villa, whether it’s a holiday home or a permanent residence, is a build that will form a beating heart of a person’s life. Fundamentally, this company seeks to design and build the most beautiful, practically perfect villas for its clients, spaces that fit themselves seamlessly around the busy lives that the people who live within it lead. After all, a home should be a place that allows someone access to everything they need to be comfortable and safe; and in this post-pandemic age, a home also needs to be a working venue of all other elements of life too, from professional work to socialising and leisure time. For BlueSky Riviera, architecture and design is not about just constructing a living space, but it is about creating an atmosphere that perfectly mirrors the client in every way. Each line guides the eye with a subtle kind of elegance, and an incredible level of engineering that allows for an effortless effect within the home proper, allowing the customer to feel supported by the design at every turn. Thus, its focus is on the atmosphere of the build and the practical implications of certain choices. A This has allowed it to successfully build safe, ‘cocooning dwelling places’ time and again for a growing number of clients that come to it through client reviews and word-of-mouth referral. After all, in a field such as bespoke home design, the talk amongst the industry – both peers and customers alike – is what gets one noticed, and BlueSky Riviera has generated buzz for itself simply by going about its work with the usual excellence, empathy, and efficiency, combining luxury architecture with sensible solutions that support everyday living. In short, BlueSky Riviera creates ‘a framework for great moments’, believing that the home is the structure around which all other aspects of life are arranged. Combining its philosophy of listening intently to a client’s wishes and needs with the unique artistry its team display in every design, its aesthetic synergy considers light and shade, material, texture, paint, and more, weaving together a symphony of different materials and techniques in order to develop an outstanding product. Consequentially, it will never be fully satisfied until a client tells it that they are. ‘You have arrived when you don’t want to leave,’ it tells us, and it looks forward to designing many more homes that give a homeowner that sense of pride as it moves forward towards the future.

BUILD Q3 2022 8 Best Luxury Sustainable Property Developer - Victoria Proud, sustainable, and working to the most impeccable of standards, Chiodo Corporation is a property developer that seeks to do the best work for its clients whilst treading lightly when it comes to the environment. Nominally, its efforts have become synonymous with properties that seem to rise from the earth as though they grew from it, each space having a natural sense of synergy to it that is only emboldened by the deep respect for sustainability that runs through this business from top to bottom.

9 Q3 2022 BUILD Mar22301 elivering the highest quality of luxury, design, sustainability, culture, and technology, Chiodo Corporation has made itself a linchpin of the property design and development industry in its region. Fundamentally, this business embraces a bold new frontier with its designs, pushing the envelope when it comes to what is possible in order to develop something new and innovative. Its embrace of the modern, contemporary, and forward-thinking allows it to incorporate unique environmental, cultural, and social elements into its work, allowing for the development of unique designs that perfectly fit Victoria – and Australia in the wider sense – as a context. With property development changing daily, Chiodo Corporation is one of the companies striving to ensure that increased environmental sustainability is one such change. Thus, it has been leading from the front in its industry, taking bold strides towards betterment and utilising the knowledge it has gleaned for the benefit of its clients, its partners, and the international property development market. In recognition of this shifting paradigm and the adaptability it has incorporated into itself as a result, Chiodo Corporation has been able to pride itself on its flexibility, as well as its ability to look ahead towards the future of design and figure out the best trajectory that will get it and its clients there. Inspired by the conscious living movement, it designs spaces that – like itself – are adaptable and sustainable, integrating its work with the surrounding landscape. Therefore, a Chiodo Corporation is always recognisable by the way it seems to fit perfectly with its surroundings whilst still being a unique and outstanding development that will catch the eye of the viewer and ensnare the imagination. Technologically advanced, supportive of local communities, and deeply conscientious, Chiodo Corporation envisions a new way forward for the creation of housing, one that prioritises the health and wellbeing of the landscape around the property as well as the people who live within it. Critically, integrating itself with surrounding nature creates a feeling of synergy that the local communities it works with can appreciate.

Additionally, its respect for the earth’s resources and the socially consciousness way it interacts with the world around it has endeared it to an increasingly ecologically aware market, and it uses this as a jumping off point to progress further in educating peers and clients both about the role of property developers in conservation and environmental protection.

BUILD Q3 2022 10 Apr22042 lastiblok – the company behind Lok-N-Blok – is a design and manufacture company based out of Paducah in Kentucky. Nominally, the place of its birth as a company has played a huge role in bolstering the inspirational ingenuity that runs through its very core, with the professionals within its ranks consistently pushing the limits of what is possible in construction. This has allowed it to funnel significant effort into design, ideation, and testing, resulting in a company that creates heavily tested and highly effective products that make life easier for its professional clients, ensuring that they themselves achieve the best results for their end customers. In this manner, it has designed ‘a better way to build’. Foremost, its idea for its flagship product came about when the minds behind it considered how a child’s building block works. Contemplating the simple design, the emphasis on each piece being part of a bigger whole, and the inherently modular nature of it, Plastiblok decided to see how it could expand this concept in order to apply it to building and construction. Thus, the Lok-N-Blok was born, a basic building block product that has become known as a truly game changing product for the worldwide construction industry and the professionals that seek to improve the field. Employing a simple, interlocking internal system, and making use of ENVION composite material, the Lok-N-Blok allows for superior structural strength whilst still being sustainable. With Building A Sustainable Future Since its inception as a company, Plastiblok has been looking for new ways to improve building and construction as an industry. Thus, when it came up with the idea for Lok-N-Blok, it found a bold new way to do this, all based on the idea of simple solutions that can handle incredibly complex problems, earning it an award for being a ‘Leader in Sustainable Residential Construction’ in 2022 for Paducah, Kentucky. Indeed, its region has vastly benefitted from the innovations it has brought to bear, with all manner of construction companies taking advantage of the way its products simplify the workload of wall building, improving insulation in the process. P

Q3 2022 BUILD 11 each of these factors in mind, Plastiblok is proud to say that the Lok-N-Blok has become an exemplary flagship product, one that is slowly changing how construction professionals see the materials they work. Critically, the problem solvers, freethinkers, and innovators behind Plastiblok are proud to say that many clients have been shown the benefits of Lok-N-Blok firsthand since its inception, and that many such clients have been a big part of its growth by leaving it glowing reviews or going on to recommend Plastiblok’s products to fellow peers. This group of clientele – past and present – is hugely diverse due to the variety of benefits to using Lok-N-Blok. Fundamentally, the use of this alternative building tool costs far less than the use of traditional materials; it is also speedier, stronger, and safer, with no need to hire expensive specialist labour required for installation. Moreover, its exterior loadbearing Lok-N-Blok utilizes over 45% recycled materials, including plastic and glass, while its interior wall Lok-N-Blok utilizes over 60% recycled plastic and glass. Saving hundreds of thousands of trees and reducing carbon emissions by thousands of tonnes, it hopes to become the number one largest user of recycled polypropylene in the world – and is proud to be contributing to environmental preservation in this manner – something it hopes many more professionals in its field will join in on soon. With a tapered dovetail design that has been produced to allow each Lok-N-Blok to work together in perfect synergy, each Blok stacks perfectly. Indeed, much like the children’s toy blocks they were based on, they have been specifically designed to be as easy as possible to put together for the construction worker, a cornerstone desire for the project in the macro scale, as construction work is such a physically and mentally demanding profession. Being the new kid on the ‘Blok’, of course, means that the industry it is approaching must have an opening or at least a receptiveness in the market for a bold new product. For some, this has indeed been the hang-up when it comes to Plastiblok. Lok-N-Blok is, indeed, a disruptive new product, but does the market need – or indeed want – disrupting? Plastiblok and studies by professionals such as the Farnsworth Group in 2019 show that, indeed, it does, with 76% of builders being keen and interested to try products with advanced and new features. Furthermore, in 2020, HSB Magazine asked its readers a similar question, focusing on how likely it may or may not be for steel framing to emerge as a leading alternative to wood framing in construction; in this case, only 39% steadfastly said it would not happen. This pertinently shows the need for an old industry to be taught some new tricks, and Plastiblok is certainly one of the best companies to do that, excited to be taking the age-old, prestigious construction industry into the modern epoch with a new, innovative, and vastly more sustainable product. Having found its beginnings in 1996, it has certainly come a long way since the founders considering the best way to build backyard walls. Indeed, it is the zeal with which co-founders Greg Siener and Mike Zumer dedicated themselves to consulting professionals, developing the concept for their mortar-less interlocking building block system, and testing new composite materials that allowed the Lok-N-Blok to become what it is today. With a proactive approach that combines acclaimed engineering, architecture, material science, and more, Plastiblok subjected the initial prototypes to rigorous testing. Requiring each new development to pass International Building Code Requirements, and requiring each product to fit with the specifications demanded by the International Code Council, the Lok-N-Blok and its pioneering way technology has helped the company behind it to become an industry leader. Indeed, from this position at the head of the pack, Plastiblok has been able to take a proactive approach to encouraging the growth of its industry, and is honoured to be one of the entities shaping its future.

This year, as it adds two more awards to its already vast roster of accolades, Collins Interiors is gearing up for another busy and successful year. We take a closer look at the multi- award-winning design firm that is synonymous with lifestyles of luxury. ollins Interiors is Sarasota, Florida’s leading provider of high end residential interior design services, known across the US for exceptional customer service and skill in creating luxury spaces that are distinct in their practical elegance, beauty, comfort and sensitivity to the surrounding environment. Central to the Collins Interiors philosophy is a devout attention to and respect of the client’s needs, demands and vision – this is the foundation of any Collins Interiors project. Barbara Vanderkolk Gardner, Founder and President of Collins Interiors, is highly trained in interior design, having studied in Michigan, Seattle, and France, she has established herself as an adept utilizer of color, texture, proportion and accessories in her work. However, her intuitive eye for interiors has undoubtedly been inherited from the generations of designers that preceded her and has been instrumental in separating her from the other highly talented individuals in her industry. Accredited by the Interior Design Society (IDS), International Furnishings Design Association (IFDA) and other notable bodies of the industry, Barbara is widely regarded as a leader in interior design, and consequently makes regular features in magazines such as Scene, Sarasota, Dwell and Architectural Digest. As a former management consultant and healthcare executive, Barbara has earned further acclaim, not least in being named a ‘Woman of Influence’ in Sarasota Scene Magazine in 2018. Collins Interiors was also recently recognized among the ‘Top Ten Interior Design Firms’ in New York Spaces Magazine. However, it is Barbara’s uniquely meticulous approach to creating houses that align perfectly with the personal preferences of its clients that truly sets the firm apart from its competition. Clients are given a ten-page questionnaire from which Barbara can obtain as much information as she can about her clients, their requirements and their visions for their homes. From their household pets to allergies, their tidiness habits to their budgets, the number of residents and family members to their tastes, Barbara gleans even the smallest details about the lifestyles of her clients, in order to create homes that are unequivocally theirs. C The client-centric approach employed by Collins Interiors means that the entire process of design and creation is not only productive, but it is also immensely enjoyable for both Barbara and her clients. The firm is therefore just as synonymous with outstanding customer service as it is with luxury design, and this has not changed even in the pandemic. Although shipping and delivery have at times been disrupted owing to restrictions and travel bans, Barbara continues to go above and beyond to ensure her projects keep moving and her clients can still bring their dream homes to life.
