NAHB is warning that the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) proposal released last week to expand the reach of the Clean Water Act will increase the cost of new homes without a corresponding benefit to America’s lakes, rivers and other water bodies. Staff is seeking members’ assistance as it prepares comments on how the proposed rule may also affect low-impact development practices such as rain gardens and swales, which may be subject to more intense federal scrutiny. While NAHB has long asked for the rulemaking, EPA’s proposal goes too far. “EPA was told to make changes to the rule so that everyone understands exactly when a builder needs a federal wetlands permit before turning the first shovel of dirt,” said Kevin Kelly, NAHB chairman and a home builder and developer from Wilmington, Del. “Instead, EPA has added just about everything into its jurisdiction by expanding the definition of a ‘tributary’ – even ditches and manmade canals, or any other feature that a regulator determines to have a bed, bank and high-water mark. It’s a waste of taxpayer resources to treat a rainwater ditch with the same scrutiny as we would the Delaware Bay.” See NAHB’s press release for more details or contact Tabby Waqar at 800-368-5242 x8327.
Project management skills are so critical in the building industry that several of NAHB’s professional designations, such as Certified Graduate Builder (CGB) and Certified Graduate Remodeler (CGR) require the course as part of their curriculum.
Now participants can earn these important credits online with Project Management LIVE! This series of three live, two-hour webinars will be held on three consecutive Tuesdays from 1-3 p.m. ET: April 22, 29 and May 6, 2014. Bill Asdal, CGP, CGR, GMB is the instructor. Project Management LIVE! covers the three phases of a successful venture: planning, implementation and evaluation. Owners, project managers, superintendents, sales managers and anyone involved in the pre-construction and construction process will benefit from this introductory course. Graduates will be able to:
- Explain the basics of successful project management
- Execute the pre-construction project management functions and responsibilities
- Implement the tools available for efficient project management
- Manage trade contractors effectively
- Perform project management duties during the project
- Complete the duties and responsibilities of post-project management
Participants must attend all three sessions and pass a 25-question test with a score of 70% or higher to receive credit. The course is worth six hours of continuing education credits.
The course costs $145 for NAHB members; $245 for non-members. Participants must register by Friday, April 18. The cancellation deadline is Monday, April 21. After April 21, the cancellation fee is $50.
