Arizona Contractor & Community magazine focuses on Downtown Phoenix to begin our 10th year of publication in 2021. In this 80-page issue, we dig into the history of iconic businesses such as the Hotel Adams and Porters Western Wear store, and reveal the scandalous financing scheme behind the Security Building in 1928.
Don’t worry, we haven’t overlooked our core topic of construction, as we feature the three generations of Skousen contractors, focusing on W.R. Skousen. We also feature the latest profiles and projects by Cliff Co, Chasse, Faciliteq, and Katerra. The issue is rounded out with Douglas Sydnor’s architecture column on round buildings in Arizona, and stories on fireproof hotels, environmental negligence, insurance for contractors, and the insights by one of Arizona’s top excavators.
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.
