BUILD WITH THE BEST Keith Coltrain, Attorney
Wall Templeton & Haldrup, P.A. Raleigh, North CarolinaThe "Build with the Best" Award honors an individual—either outside the industry or from within CAGC's suppliers/service company membership sector—whose efforts contributed to the betterment of the construction industry and the overall economic welfare of the Carolinas. In the 2011-12 North Carolina General Assembly, Keith helped lead efforts to craft a compromise concerning double payment legislation that was fair to the entire construction industry. That issue has cost building contractors millions in the past 20 years because of unfairly having to pay twice for the same work or materials through payment bonds. The legislation, approved last July, also provides for greater fairness to specialty contractors, subcontractors and suppliers on bankruptcy issues involving contractors.
