ACC #52 Jul Aug 2022 - Final FC.jpg


In the 96-page Jul/Aug issue of Arizona Contractor & Community magazine, we focus on planned communities, including articles spotlighting iconic creations such as Lake Havasu City and Fountain Hills. To get a behind-the-scenes look at these Arizona communities, we interviewed Valley radio legend Dave Pratt whose father, Lorne Pratt, was the marketing genius behind these projects. But Lorne Pratt wasn’t all about business, as Dave recalls unforgettable stories about Hollywood A-list movie stars and sports figures who were frequent household guests.

Copies are available via the ACC website or at Books on 7th Avenue in Phoenix, or the Ignite Sign Museum in Tucson.

Arizona Contractor & Community magazine has become a vital forum for the state’s building industry by providing critical information and exposure to companies in the field. Moreover, the publication has expanded beyond traditional construction, architecture, and real estate topics and has found an audience with those who have fresh ideas on adaptive reuse of historic buildings or making new developments more community-friendly and sustainable. ​


​The magazine also looks frequently in the rearview mirror with articles that honor the many remarkable accomplishments of the building industry in Arizona. It may have been “just a job” back in the day, but these construction pioneers created the spectacular framework that still holds Arizona together. Anyone with an interest in history or engineering will enjoy the incredible legacy of roads, buildings, dams, and other infrastructure projects featured in the magazine.
