The project consisted of a full exterior siding and trim replacement using James Hardie material. Other exterior renovations included painting, shingle roofing and carport flat roofing replacement, exterior re-design and repairs, privacy screen replacement, patio deck and railing replacement, fencing repairs, and various property modifications and enhancements, as well as a homeowner option for window and door replacement.

Carriage Place Apartments

As one of the Renovation division ongoing projects, Taylor Commercial, Inc. is currently in the process of a complete restoration of 20, 1-bedroom units in a building at Carriage Place Apartments in Decatur, Georgia that were damaged in a fire over Thanksgiving weekend of 2010.

Taylor has completed demolition of the charred remnants of the damaged building and has started completely rebuilding all of the units, adding new firestopping materials and sprinkler systems.

Stay tuned for the final results and some follow up pictures in the next quarterly newsletter!

Committed to Community

Taylor Commercial, Inc. continues its commitment to community service through a variety of events and projects.

Taylor was honored to participate and donate to three different golf tournaments this May which supported very deserving causes. Once again, Taylor participated in the 7th annual Fortune-Johnson Golf Tournament, which raised over $57,000 for SERV Ministries International, a non-profit, nondenominational organization that focuses on improving the lives of orphaned and impoverished children, both domestically and internationally, by providing food, education, clothing, proper medical care and spiritual development. Also, Taylor Commercial was pleased to donate again to the 9th annual Hathaway Construction "Swing a Club" for CASA Charity Golf Tournament, benefitting Ocmulgee Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), part of a national non-profit organization that assigns volunteers to represent children through the court system. This tournament has helped Ocmulgee CASA raise over $200,000 since 2003.Finally, Taylor acted as a Bronze Sponsor for the House of the Children Academy Golf Tournament hosted by the Northwest Georgia Housing Authority (NWGHA). House of the Children offers children who live in NWGHA residences an opportunity to participate in the Montessori Method of education.

In addition to taking part in the golf tournaments, Taylor Commercial was very happy to donate two Lowe's gift cards to the Alabama Apartment Association for the victims of the April tornadoes through our yearly involvement at the Atlanta Apartment Association Trade Show.

BOOK NOOK

Death by Meeting

We are excited to read Death by Meeting, by acclaimed author Patrick Lencioni (The Five Dysfunctions of a Team) as the next book in our ongoing continuing education series.

From Patrick Lencioni's website:

In his latest work of business fiction, Patrick Lencioni focuses on a cure for the most painful yet underestimated problem of modern business: bad meetings. Death by Meeting is nothing short of a blueprint for leaders who want to eliminate waste and frustration among their teams, and create environments of engagement and passion.
