Make Your Company Competitive

Low unemployment is making it difficult to keep and find good employees. People now need to be coaxed, cultivated, and inspired in order to join a new company or stick with their current organization. However, companies that think carefully about how to create experiences to meet their employees’ needs will flourish in the future.

Ask The Consultant
By Chuck Daleo

Q: I have a permitted job that involves a two story residential addition. After framing the walls, the homeowner wanted him to move a wall to increase the size of the master suite. The approved plan did not accommodate the bedroom furniture. I discussed this with my inspector and he said that I had to get a change of plan and that he could not approve the change because it was an architect’s plan and I needed to get the architect to show the revision. ~ Stan G.

Capitol Connection Q&A for Contractors
By Shauna Krause, President, Capitol Services, Inc

A ‘rose by any other name smells as sweet’ may apply to flowers, but not contractor’s business names. A business name; how it applies to trade and structure of the entity all matter in determining what you can legally call yourself and how you advertise contractor services as you will discover in these Q and A that ‘rose’ to the occasion…

Q:  We have been licensed for many years in California as a corporation. Now that California is licensing Limited Liability Companies (LLC) we recently applied for a license for our LLC, which is how we conduct business in many other States. We are General Engineering contractors and our business name is our owner’s name, followed by “Construction LLC”. Our application was rejected because the CSLB is stating that we cannot use the word “Construction” in our name. They are requiring that we adopt a ‘doing business as’ name (dba). For obvious reasons we don’t want a different name in California than we have in other States and the President is arguing that there must be some way around this. Is there a law that you can point me to that I can provide to our President with regards to contracting company companies using “Construction” in their business name?
