Jana Brickey, Krista Foglesong Achieve Certified Professional Services Marketer Designation


Jana Brickey, Marketing Manager for Dick & Fritsche Design Group and Krista Foglesong, Sr. Marketing Coordinator for Haydon Building Corp., earned the designation of Certified Professional Services Marketer.

They are among a growing number of professionals to be certified by the Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS), which advocates for, educates, and connects leaders in the design and building industry.

Certified Professional Services Marketers (CPSMs) are recognized as having the experience and knowledge to generate profitable business in the architectural, engineering, and construction marketplace.

To achieve this designation, certification candidates must meet educational and experience requirements, pass a rigorous written examination, and pledge to abide by the CPSM Code of Ethics. The process validates the individual’s mastery of and ability to apply critical business development knowledge in an industry that values certification.

SMPS Chief Executive Officer Ronald D. Worth, CAE, FSMPS, CPSM, observed, “Pursuing certification demonstrates a professional’s commitment to life-long learning and to building the firm’s business. Certification is truly an investment in one’s career, the profession, and the industry.”

The Society for Marketing Professional Services (smps.org) was created in 1973 by a small group of firm leaders who recognized the need to sharpen skills, pool resources, and work together to create business opportunities.

Today the association supports 6,000+ members as they tackle the day-to-day complexities of marketing and developing business for architectural, engineering, construction, and related specialty services firms in an increasingly competitive marketplace.



Haydon's Historic Gila River Bridge Rehabilitation Projects Earns National Award


Haydon Building Corp. won the Associated General Contractors of America’s Marvin M. Black Excellence in Partnering Award for its Historic Gila River Bridge Rehabilitation project.

It was named one of the most successful construction partnerships of 2012. Phoenix-based Haydon was one of just two firms to receive the association’s Excellence in Partnering Award.

“Knowledge, skills and experience are vital to any successful construction project, but without a strong foundation of teamwork the project will crumble,” said Joseph H. Jarboe, the association’s president and senior vice president of Bethesda, Md.-based Clark Construction Group. “These projects demonstrate the type of effective collaboration that is critical to building great things.”

The Historic Old US80 Gila River Bridge was built in 1926 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The bridge spans the Gillespie Dam, between Arlington and Gila Bend, and required replacement and renovation.

The Haydon team addressed bridge deficiencies and corroded anchorages, and replaced roller bearings locked in place by corrosion, all while protecting and preserving cliff swallow nests located beneath the bridge.

The partnering process allowed the project team to deliver the project in only 90 days, which required accelerated materials delivery, traffic control restrictions and construction sequencing. This project was completed under budget, and successfully maintained the historic look of the bridge.

The Marvin M. Black Excellence in Partnering Award recognizes unique and successful partnerships needed to complete complex construction projects. A panel of judges, representing all areas of construction, evaluated a number of outstanding projects, assessing contractors’ ability to resolve conflicts, the quality of communications with all involved parties and the ability to get many groups to achieve one goal, among other key criteria.

The awards, which were announced during the association’s annual convention in Palm Springs, Calif., are considered by many to be the most prestigious recognition of construction accomplishments in the U.S.

Most Sustainable Project 2010

Appaloosa Branch Library

Wide arrays of environmental designs and products for the Appaloosa Library have been submitted for LEED Gold certification. Formerly used to accommodate overflow parking for Rawhide, most of the site has been restored with native vegetation that includes transplanted cacti and trees salvaged from the old lot. Building materials were selected to reduce the heat island effect, and to make use of locally produced products. Building design includes locations for collecting recyclable materials to minimize garbage that needs to be transported to landfills. Additionally, 93% of construction waste materials were recycled. An interactive flat screen monitor placed in the lobby displays the real-time operation of various systems, including energy consumption and solar energy generation. It can also provide historical trends, as well as generate alarms or alerts under certain conditions.
