Strong Foundations | Summer 2017


A message from Randall Redding

Summer is quickly coming to an end, but we want to give it one last look in this month’s Strong Foundation newsletter.

Our first article in this edition focuses on 2017 School Projects and the coordinated effort and teamwork required to complete summer renovations and additions while the students are on break. This year we completed over 680,000 SF of renovations in approximately 60 days. This always amazes me. Our team successfully pulls this off year in and year out.

While the on-site work begins after the teachers leave for the summer, there is much preparation that has to occur during the months leading up to the break. Long-lead items have to be ordered early in order to successfully complete complex projects in such a short period of time.

Also in this edition, our friend, Mr. Loy Howard, the long-time President/CEO of Tanner Health System offers a Q & A interview where he discusses many interesting and insightful topics. Loy is such a blessing to our region and we appreciate him taking the time out of his extremely busy schedule to visit with us.

I want to also mention the fact that RKR received our first National Safety Award in June from the Associated General Contractors of America at the Conference held at Ponte Vedra, Florida. This recognition goes to companies who have Zero incidents of accidents during the past 3 years. Very few companies in America receive this award. Our thanks goes out to our safety team headed up by Tommy Grace, as well as to each and every one of our employees that consistently keep safety “top of mind”. Way to Go!

As always, thanks for your continued support and friendship.

Respectfully,



Randall K. Redding
President & CEO

RKR Goes to Summer School


School is back in session, which is the universal reminder that summer is over. While many kids will be telling their friends and their teachers all about their summer adventures – trips to the beach, going to camps, and lounging by the pool – RKR has spent the summer months on renovation, addition, modification, and replacement projects.

West Georgia Habitat Changes Lives

Habitat for Humanity builds more than homes, it provides a new beginning to deserving people. Since 1976, Habitat has helped 6.8 million people find strength, stability and independence through safe, decent and affordable shelter. R. K. Redding Construction organized the West Georgia Habitat for Humanity home build in Bremen last fall. Twenty companies that work in the West Georgia area came together as one to build a new home for a deserving family in Haralson County. This “community” of volunteers not only made a significant difference for the area, according to recent studies, employees are more satisfied with their jobs when they are allowed to take a day for community service. In addition, 59% of Americans are more likely to buy a product associated with a corporate-nonprofit partnership. Beyond the obvious of doing good deeds in the communities in which you serve, it has been proven that companies which practice corporate social responsibility will significantly outperfor

Strong Foundations | Spring 2019

A Message from Randall Redding With spring fully upon us, it’s wonderful to enjoy the weather and spend time with family. I am excited to share the latest issue of the  Strong Foundations newsletter. In the first article, we spoke to Eric McDonald, President & CEO of Greater Haralson Chamber of Commerce, and Daniel Jackson, President & CEO of Carroll County Chamber of Commerce. They are members of the Greater West Georgia Joint Development Authority (GWGJDA), which has grown to represent seven area counties that work together on multi-county projects to benefit West Georgia residents. The other article discusses the recent trend of building with modular and prefabricated construction materials. This method of off-site construction and then transported to the worksite offers many advantages, but it does have its setbacks. At RKR, we will continue to examine new ways to solve the complex issues facing our industry, always with our client’s goals in mind. Thanks for

A Conversation with Daniel Jackson & Eric McDonald of the Greater West Georgia Joint Development Authority

Beginning with only four member counties in the late 1990s, the Greater West Georgia Joint Development Authority (GWGJDA) has grown to represent seven area counties, including: Polk, Haralson, Paulding, Carroll, Heard, Coweta, and Troup. We spoke to Eric McDonald, President & CEO of Greater Haralson Chamber of Commerce, and Daniel Jackson, President & CEO of Carroll County Chamber of Commerce, about the collaborative nature of the Development Authority that allows members to work together on multi-county projects to benefit West Georgia residents. What are your current role and responsibilities as part of the GWGJDA? Eric: I am a supporting staff member for the Greater West Georgia Joint Development Authority.

Strong Foundations | Fall 2018

A Message from Randall Redding As the season changes, it brings a sense of renewal at RKR. Hopefully the brisk temperatures refresh you during the Holiday Season. I am excited to share the latest issue of the Strong Foundations newsletter. In the first article, we spoke with West Georgia Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Jennifer Shunn. She’s made a tremendous impact on housing across the entire region. RKR is honored to work with this extremely worthwhile non-profit organization to help construct homes for those in need. In a previous issue, we shared how workforce development was a focus for the construction industry, and it’s a topic that is still very relevant. In fact, I recently participated in an Atlanta Journal Constitution interview, along with the Associated General Contractors Association. May you enjoy the Holidays filled with love, laughter and family. Thanks for your friendship and continued support, Randall K. Redding President & CEO
