In the 96-page Sep/Oct issue of Arizona Contractor & Community magazine, we focus on southern Arizona, spotlighting popular places and their iconic establishments such as Green Valley, Willcox, Nogales, Bisbee, Douglas, Tucson, and the old blacktop that connected many of these communities and formed their main streets: U.S. Highway 80.
The magazine doesn’t shortchange construction history and includes articles on Royden Construction’s work on the old Whetstone Overpass, the evolution of the Caterpillar 641 scraper, Karl Ronstadt’s recollections of using Jebco’s Experimental Mass Excavator on Interstate 10, and a profile of Tucson architect Rob Paulus. A special bonus is an advertising insert celebrating KE&G’s 50th Anniversary.
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.
