There are a lot of publications and trade groups who would like us to advertise in their magazine, either digital or print and sometimes both! While we think all are worthwhile our goal is to support our partners while broadening the Hager brand. Our partners include distributors, facilities managers, end users, general contractors and architects.
Through our social media platforms we follow several architects in order to promote and share their services and projects. However there are three architects that caught our eye when they decided to try something new. They started a podcast called Archispeak for “all things architecture” by architects, in late 2012. The hosts are Evan Troxel, Neal Pann and Cormac Phalen. We’ve been following them for a while.
They talk about everything! Really – from premature renderation to architects and egos, nothing is sacred. They also work hard to provide a resource to emerging architects. We were thrilled when they picked up a steady sponsor in ARCAT.
ARCAT, in case you don’t know, provides free building products specifications. We hear from architects all the time how difficult writing hardware specs are so in order to try to simplify their work load our specifications are listed on ARCAT’s website.
We had been thinking about sponsoring a few shows for a while but needed it to be the right time. For the next few months we have a convergence of events happening so we felt this was it. Episode #70 is out now. There is a special opportunity for listeners of the show if you are attending CONSTRUCT or the Texas Society of Architect trade shows but you have to listen to the podcast to find out what it is.
In the meantime thanks Evan, Neal and Cormac for providing great content that everyone in the AEC community can learn from.
