Announcing our RFMA Gives 2016 project
RFMA
RFMA is excited and humbled to announce that our RFMA Gives 2016 project recipient is "The Journey Home" (TJH) in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, which is outside Nashville. It utilizes practical day-to-day resources to build relationships with people in order for them to understand their value and enable them to become productive members of their community. They serve over 42,000 meals a year and would like to increase this number. Additionally, they have two large community gardens where they grow much of their own food during the growing season. Their building is in need of several upgrades, and details on the scope of work will be coming soon. Stay tuned!

Click here to visit our RFMA Gives blog, where we will be keeping you updated throughout the year about the project. "Subscribe" to make sure you always get updates on new blog posts.

It's time to bring 'sexy' back — to parking garages
Pamela Tresp
Experience has shown that building owners and managers don't budget for lighting improvements. Increasing light levels, keeping light levels even to avoid concealment areas and shadows, and ensuring the quality of light for effective videotaping or surveillance just "isn't sexy enough." Sure, it would be nice to do. But it's the fancy building lobby that attracts the attention and lures leasing. I get it. I was a business owner myself. "Sexy" sells. It gets you in the door. But what about once you're in?
