Keeping Abreast

 In today’s economic climate, WRECORP is acutely aware of the importance of maintaining  an awareness of industry advancements in materials, materials’ compatibilities, improvements in applications and methods, and the economic benefits those newer materials and methods bring to clients.  As a roofing designer and specifier to owners, architects, engineers, schools, municipalities, and others, WRECORP has a fundamental obligation to offer the latest, most technologically advanced products available to its clients, thus permitting them to make sound investment management decisions.  WRECORP achieves this awareness by active participation in organizations such as ARCA, RCI, CSI, SPFA, AASBO, and ACRC.

Another valuable source of “keeping abreast” is that found in the interaction of our clients and us.  We realize that all of our clients, regardless if they are architects, engineers, property managers, schools, governments, facility managers or insurance agents, have tremendous areas of responsibilities where roofing is a fraction of the whole.  They have a sound basic understanding of roofing systems that allows them to ask pertinent questions to clarify theory, specification, design, schedule, budget, warranty, dissatisfied tenant, or PM program issues, with real-life solution input.  Conversely, it is equally educational for us because this diversity of interaction increases our appreciation of how our focus needs to be broadened to arrive at solutions with newer tools and fresher thinking.  
  
To be able to “keep abreast” one must not be tethered to established methods and materials, nor think that there is only one-way of thinking.  At WRECORP, we realize that as the industry, owners and thinking evolve, materials, design criteria and codes must evolve as well.  We owe it to our clients to present to them the best of that evolution for their consideration.  If we do not, then we have failed in our mission.
