ARC provides a very critical role in construction and communication. For anyone of you who has not heard this before, I have constantly said this to my existing investors. So I always put in a small story. For example, to understand what we do in the industry, if an architect wants to give instructions let’s say to a construction company about doing a window in this building. You know he doesn’t send them an email saying that, hey, I want a window. You know 8X4 in this wall. He doesn’t send them an email or leave a voice mail.
He actually issues a drawing and the drawing will say what kind of window, what should the frame be. Should it would be wood, steel, aluminum? What should be the glass; what should be the tensile strength in the glass; how should it be secured; what should be the hinges. Should it be aluminum, steel. All the details he will put in a drawing and then he will communicate that to the contractor. So think about it like this. In the construction industry we have over 220 different trades. And how I explain that is the same guy who comes to install your carpets doesn’t do your plumbing, right, in your house.
The guy who does the plumbing won't do cabinetry. The cabinet guy won't do steel. Steel guy won't do the roofing. Roofing guys won't do plumbing. I mean it goes on and on and on. 200 different trades. So if you think about a new building when an architect is giving instructions, he has to give instructions or he has to issue drawings to all 200 trades. And that’s the only way they communicate. Because the architect doesn’t walk around saying, I want a five-foot wall here and I want it to be eight-feet wide. He won't say that. He will actually issue a drawing.
