Construction Costs
    The cost of goods used in construction jumped in April at the fastest year-over-year rate since 2011, with ongoing increases for a wide range of building materials, including many that are subject to proposed tariffs that could drive prices still higher and cause scarcities, according to an analysis by the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of America of Labor Department data. Association officials said that the new data indicates many firms are already being squeezed by higher materials prices that they are unable to pass along to their customers.
    “Contractors have started to boost the prices they charge, but they are falling further behind on the cost of materials they buy,” said the association’s chief economist, Ken Simonson. “This imbalance poses two risks - either contractors will suffer decreased profit margins or project owners with fixed budgets will cut back on the projects they undertake.”
    The producer price index for inputs to construction industries, goods - a measure of all materials used in construction projects including items consumed by contractors, such as diesel fuel - rose 1.0% in April alone and 6.4% over 12 months. The year-over-year increase was the steepest since 2011, the economist noted. Meanwhile, the producer price index for nonresidential construction - a measure of what contractors say they would charge to put up a mix of school, office, warehouse, industrial, and health care buildings - increased 1.1% for the month and 4.2% year-over-year.
    “The gap between the 6.4% rise in the cost of construction goods and the 4.2% increase in prices charged is ominous,” Simonson observed.
    From April 2017 to April 2018, the producer price index jumped by 11.9% for aluminum mill shapes, 11.0% for lumber and plywood, and 7.4% for steel mill products.
    Other construction inputs that rose sharply in price from April 2017 to April 2018 include diesel fuel, 41.6%; copper and brass mill shapes, 10.5%; gypsum products, 7.5%; ready-mix concrete, 6.9%; and truck transportation of freight, 6.0%.

California
Man Killed in Fire at Airport Hangar
    An article by Lonnie Wong posted April 18, 2018, on www.fox40.com, Sacramento, California, said flight operations at the Nevada County Airport continued uninterrupted after a deadly fire at Sierra Mountain Aviation, located right next to the runway.
    It started at the beginning of the workday at Sierra Mountain Aviation’s maintenance hangar. There were three airplanes inside.
    The fire call came in as a rescue and flames had subsided by the time fire crews arrived.
    “The fire sprinklers had activated and we did have to rescue one person, who unfortunately is deceased,” Nevada County Consolidated Fire District Fire Marshal Terry McMahon said.
    The fire sprinklers, along with a fire wall that split the building, saved the business next door. It was able to resume partial operations with just smoke damage.
    But it was the smoke that may very well have been deadly.
    “Fiberglass and the upholsteries and the things that they use in them, the smoke was dark and was down low to the ground,” McMahon said. “Very toxic.”
    The victim is 65-year-old John Pichitino, a longtime pilot, flight instructor, and mechanic at the airport. Word spread quickly among the tightly knit flying community at the airport.
    “People are really getting emotional because he was a well-known person around here and touched a lot of people’s lives,” airport manager Lee Ocker said.
    In a stroke of irony, the last fire at the airport was in 1994 in another hangar not a hundred yards from the April 11 fire. It also killed a pilot.
    Pilot and flight instructor Ken Joyce knew both victims, adding to the sense of tragedy.
    “Married with a wife and one kid and just an unfortunate thing that smoke got to him before anybody could get to him,” Joyce said.
    A female office worker was also treated for smoke inhalation and was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.
    Meanwhile, the investigation continues into what may have caused the fire.

Hawaii
Residents Vote to Have Fire Sprinklers
    An article posted May 2, 2018, on www.usnews.com, said a majority of condo owners at the 35-story Marco Polo have voted in favor of retrofitting the building with automatic sprinklers, several months after a deadly fire raged through the building, killing four people.
    The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported that Marco Polo condo owner Sam Shenkus said the owners voted to install the sprinklers in units and hallways. Shenkus said 67% of the owners voted in favor of the decision.
    The July 14, 2017 fire, which began in a unit on the 26th floor, caused more than $100 million in damage. Shenkus said many residents still have not been able to move back into the units.
    The high-rise was not equipped with sprinklers, which Honolulu Fire Department officials say could have saved lives.

Hawaii
Mayor Kirk Signs Bill to Encourage Fire Sprinklers
    An article by Leila Fujimori on May 3, 2018, in the Star-Advertiser, Honolulu, Hawaii, said at the site of a July 14 condo tower blaze that killed four, Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell signed Bill 69 into law, giving incentives to condo associations if they install fire sprinklers.
    Fire Chief Manuel Neves called it a happy day because buildings will be safer, although the Honolulu Fire Department had pushed to make it mandatory for all older condo buildings to be retrofitted with automatic fire sprinkler systems.
    Bill 69 originally did mandate retrofitting older high-rises with sprinkler systems. It was amended to instead give incentives to condo associations if they install sprinklers, such as tax credits and fee waivers. The bill also requires high-rises to have other safety measures in place.
    The Marco Polo condominium at 2333 Kapiolani Blvd. sustained more than $107 million in damage and four residents died after being trapped in their apartments for hours.
    The Association of Apartment of Owners of the Marco Polo voted recently in favor of using the association’s reserves to install a fire sprinkler system. Some condo owners in other buildings had resisted making it mandatory because of the costs associated with having to install such systems.

Standpipe Rack Hose Video
    Supporting the association’s mission to save lives and protect property through fire safety education, the Fire Equipment Manufacturers’ Association released an educational video on the features and benefits of standpipe rack hoses. This educational video provides an overview of standpipe rack hose systems and highlights the importance of these systems as part of balanced fire protection plan for buildings.
    “Incorporating a balanced fire protection design in commercial buildings helps to minimize safety risks by providing multiple channels for fire notification and protection,” says Duane Leonhardt, fire hose and interior equipment division chair. “Building owners, managers, and occupants play key roles in designing and executing fire protection plans, so we produced this video specifically with them in mind.”
    Standpipe rack hose systems are just one element of a complete balanced protection plan; other elements may include portable fire extinguishers, automated suppression systems, smoke detectors, and fire alarms.
    In addition to providing a summary of the components and operation of standpipe rack hose systems, the video also reviews the unique features of these systems, including: Quick suppression of fires; One-person operation; Minimal water damage; Pathway clearing for occupant rescue; Occupant protection during rescue.
    The educational standpipe rack hose video is available for viewing and sharing on YouTube and SlideShare.
    This standpipe rack hose video is the fourth educational video created and posted on the Fire Equipment Manufacturers’ Association’s YouTube and SlideShare accounts. Other educational videos include: How to Use a Portable Fire Extinguisher, Your First Defense When Disaster Strikes (NFPA 1126) and UL300 – Protecting Commercial Kitchens.
    The Fire Equipment Manufacturers’ Association is a more than 60 year-old non-profit trade association dedicated to saving lives and protecting property by providing education of a balanced fire protection design.

Residential Fire Sprinklers Cost Report
    The cost to install home fire sprinklers in 51 homes in 17 communities averaged $1.35 per sprinklered square foot, down from the $1.61 average in 2008, according to a report conducted by Newport Partners (Newport) and released by the Fire Protection Research Foundation (the Foundation), an affiliate of the National Fire Protection Association. (Sprinklered square feet is a measure of total area of spaces with sprinklers.) The new report, Home Fire Sprinkler Cost Assessment - 5 Year Update, provides a national perspective on the cost of installing home fire sprinklers.
    The primary purpose of the 2013 study was to review current home fire sprinkler costs against a 2008 benchmark study, Home Fire Sprinkler Cost Assessment, also commissioned by the Foundation and conducted by Newport, to better understand the relationship between adoptions, various elements of cost such as installation and materials, how efficiency in design or installation may be introduced, and more.
