By Tim O’Connor, Senior Editor for Knighthouse Media

When Lanier Technical College announced plans to build a new campus in Gainesville, Ga., New South Construction saw an opportunity to become involved in another high-profile project in the state. The Atlanta-based general contractor had relationships with the Georgia State Financing and Investment Commission, which manages the funding for the project, and the state’s larger technical college system, however, it had not previously worked with Lanier Tech. New South Construction created a joint venture with Carroll Daniel Construction, a fellow firm located in Gainesville that had completed jobs for Lanier Tech in the past. 

In Carroll Daniel Construction, New South Construction found a like-minded partner that shared its integrity and emphasis on safety. “Our two firms are really right there together,” Project Director Jeff Brown says. “Both our businesses approach projects the same way, we have the same ethics and integrity.”

By Knighthouse Media Editorial Staff

Founded in 1889, Barnard College has been known for its distinctive academic culture.  Located in New York City, it is dedicated to women’s education and the liberal arts. The school was actually founded as aresponse to neighboring Columbia University’s refusal to admit women.

Although today’s Barnard students are allowed to use the libraries of Columbia, Barnard has always maintained a library of its own. Lehman Hall was the site of Barnard’s Wollman Library from 1959 until 2015. In 2016, that building was demolished to make way for a new library: The Cheryl and Philip Milstein Teaching and Learning Center.

Vertix picVertix Builders offers clients the capabilities and experience of a large general contractor with the personal service of a smaller company.

By Tim O’Connor, Senior Editor at Knighthouse Media

The construction market today is often volatile. It’s a face-paced environment where labor is in short supply and everyone is pushing to get things done faster. Those competing forces can easily create tension among owners, contractors and subs, leading to an unpleasant and contentious building experience where someone is destined to leave unsatisfied.

Vertix Builders was founded in 2014 with a focus on reversing that trend and taking the culture back 30 years to when a person’ word meant something. “The idea behind our company is we wanted to get back to providing a high level of service and getting back to working with our clients in person as opposed to managing from afar,” Vice President Ted Laszlo says.
