Celebrating the New Year with 13 Years of MANA Membership
December 30, 2014 | Blog
With New Year’s around the corner — it’s only two days away —it seems like a natural time to reflect on the past year. Earlier this month, I received notice that InterCoast Building Solutions is about to enter Year 13 of our membership in the Manufacturers’ Agents National Association (MANA).
MANA has been promoting excellence in representing manufacturer’s products since 1947. At the core of their beliefs is building quality relationships with clients. We share that value and have built InterCoast’s foundation on the wonderful relationships we have with so many architects, engineers, contractors and other building professionals. And at this time of year it’s those relationships, and the projects they created, that come to mind.
This year has been a great one at InterCoast. We’ve been involved in a great number of progressive projects including Vancouver’s acclaimed 548 Beatty Building, Ashton Hills in the British Properties and Guilford Town Community Centre in Surrey. We’ve worked with passionate people. And we’ve forged new relationships with clients and manufacturers. And thanks to our loyal client base, local governments committing to the greening of their cities, and new more designers embracing green principles, we saw more of the great products we rep being used to create more sustainable commercial, civic and residential projects.
InerCoast Building Solutions Proudly Represents the following products:
- Hydrotech Waterproofing Systems
- Hydrotech Green Roof & Garden Roof® Asemblies
- Tech-Crete Concrete Faced Insulating Wall & Roof Panels
- SRP Breathable Air & Water Barriers
- ILD Leak Detection & Membrane Integrity Testing
- BASF WALLTITE Spray Foam Insulation
- Etera Sedum Tile System
- Sempergreen Sedum Vegetation Carpet Systems
- Curv-Rite Aluminum Landscaping Edging & Paver Restraints
Working on projects that promote sustainability is always rewarding. Seeing building professionals enthusiastically embrace environmental best practices is even more so. Getting a positive community response to building greener? That’s the icing in the cake.
As 2014 winds down and 2015 is preparing to ramp up, I find myself thinking of all the great projects and all the great people I have been fortunate to work with this past year. I hope you all have a Happy New Year. And I look forward to seeing you in 2015 and our 13th year as a proud member of MANA.
