1940’s.  Last fall, McKenney’s worked in conjunction with The Segars Group on plans to replace the facilities aging central steam plant.  <span id="more-3800"></span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>This plant is considered the “heart” of the facility by providing vital steam to not only the HVAC systems, but also critical hospital systems such as the sterilizers, domestic hot water, and kitchens.  Given the critical nature of the facility, where people’s lives are at stake, it is crucial that there would be no loss of service during this renovation.  McKenney’s team worked closely with Atlanta Medical Center to successfully develop a plan that would minimize downtime, maintain equipment redundancy, and maximize available boiler capacity throughout construction of the new boiler plant.  All of this being accomplished while we completely removed and replaced critical infrastructure in a plant that is over 50 years old.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img data-attachment-id="3801"

utilized leading edge laser scanning technology to develop a virtual as built model of the existing planting prior to beginning construction.  Our team used this model to produce a state of the art BIM model of the new plant within the crowded infrastructure of the existing mechanical room.  This model allowed the end users to review every aspect of the new plant before construction ensuring all customer needs were being met.  This also decreased project cost and schedule impacts by allowing McKenney’s to maximize the use of prefabrication in our in-house fabrication facilities to the greatest extent possible.  We are proud of the success that this project team has experienced thus far as construction of the plant is complete, and we are moving into start up.  This approach has been leveraged with a high level of success, and can be applied to numerous other renovations of various building types to meet our customer needs.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Have a question for our

Some situations may be prevented by routine video inspection and drain cleaning. <span id="more-3810"></span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Often overlooked is the importance of drain cleaning before there is a major problem.  Lots of drains are already partially clogged due to age, build up on the inside of pipe walls, improper materials being flushed or  washed down, and roots/intrusions on piping under slabs and outside foundations.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The best way to deal with clogged drains is to prevent them before it happens.  A video inspection, which can be scheduled on a recurring basis can help prevent possible clogs, reduce damages and lessen downtime in your facility. A video inspection helps the plumber determine if the piping is newly installed or aging and can confirm the exact location of problem areas.  It may prevent unnecessary excavations or messy repairs and provides an accurate condition of piping.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>We offer current technology in video inspection and drain cleaning to include high pressure drain cleaning.  Scheduling an annual video inspection and drain cleaning with one of our skilled plumbing professionals is the best way to get this done.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Have a question for our experts?

In one keynote address they took this concept one step further with the question “Who <u>owns </u>safety?” As the Content Director for EHS Today, Sandy Smith, put it – “ We take care of what we own. When every employee and every department <u>owns</u> a piece of safety, the culture changes for the better. Striving for a safe working environment  for employees is important, but true cultural change occurs when we realize who should lead safety at our company. For a company to achieve true safety leadership, every employee and department must take ownership.”</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>As this theme was interwoven throughout the meetings, lectures and workshops, one thing resonated loud and clear – we <u>all</u> own safety! Does the front line employee or field leader own safety? Absolutely! What about the Safety Department? Obviously. How about operations, upper management, or the C-suite? Yes, yes, and yes. In reality, all employees are shareholders in safety and have an impact on the safety of their organization.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The conference was broken up into four tracks- Safety &amp; Risk Management, Construction, Compliance, Safety Technology- and examined concepts such as using industrial Internet of Things (IoT) and leading indicators to improve worker safety, maintaining a culture of continuous improvement , and of course creating ownership in safety. One session, led by Terry Mathis, CEO/Founder of ProAct Safety, focused on how to “create” ownership within your workforce. When an employee- no matter their title, role or history in the organization- actually believes they own safety, there is a sense of pride over that ownership. He stated that it is human nature to take better care of that which we own. Ownership is also the reason why some safety efforts are stellar and others are lackluster.

It’s not even new that we’re doing this with email and file sharing software to move at a faster pace each day. The problem is that Construction is a huge target because of daily need to share files from dozens of different platforms, which makes user awareness training near impossible.<span id="more-3812"></span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>When I joined McKenney’s I focused on two things: automation and cyber security. The biggest component of cyber security was to improve internet browser security through the latest in Chrome plus ad blockers. Combine that with improved email security and one minimizes the way that bad things make it into a company.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Cisco, a leading network vendor, stated criminals stole over $5.3 billion between October 2013 and December 2016. Additionally, at the end of 2017 according to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3),<a href="https://www.fbi.gov/news/stories/business-e-mail-compromise-on-the-rise"> “the BEC scam continues to grow, evolve, and target businesses of all sizes. Since January 2015, there has been a 1,300 percent increase in identified exposed losses”.</a> From Cisco’s 2017 Annual Security Report spam now accounts for nearly two-thirds (65 percent) of total email volume and continues to grow. Yes, for every legitimate email we receive there should have been 2 spam in our inbox. If you only receive 1 spam email for every 50 legitimate emails, then your technology department is actually preventing 99 spam emails. Furthermore, according to Cisco threat researchers, only about 9 percent total global spam observed in 2016 could be classified as malicious, but that number continues to rise as well. Since the construction industry relies so heavily on file transfers and communication between multiple companies in an integrated supply chain the construction industry has a real problem.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>So, what can your company do?</strong></p> <p>In prior blogs, I’ve talked about the Phishing training that we’ve done to address the growing problem of Business Email Compromise (BEC). The simplest and most cost-effective approach is to train all employees to ‘hover over’ hyper-links (aka URLs). When everyone in a company knows to hover, they will quickly see that emails that appear to be legitimate are pointed to either criminal web-pages or hacked websites. Either way, it is very clear once someone hovers over a link that an email is inappropriate.  Once employees have clear and concise communication the best tool to reinforce this communication is phishing simulators, such as those from Wombat, GoPhish or KnowBe4. If you’d like more options simply search “Phishing simulators” for providers of tools that will allow you to send out tests to your employees. You’ll receive reports on which employees clicked on links, opened attachments and generally need more training.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><em>Okay, so things didn’t work out as planned and someone clicked a link entering his or her network password.</em> By now every construction company has dealt with this. You contact your technology department, turn-off the employees account and then send emails to all of your partners, suppliers and customers that received the inappropriate email from your employee’s email. To prevent this form of BEC, ask your technology department to turn on multi-factor authentication. In prior blogs, I’ve written about how effective this is from preventing loss of an account.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>If you follow these recommendations as an industry we should be able to get ahead of the criminals and get back to focusing on this current construction boom.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Have a question for our experts?

However, there are still organizations  attempting to portray their brand of ware as “open,” when those that have been in the industry a while, know better.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>At McKenney’s, we have made a deliberate choice to do what is best for the customer and design a system that makes the most sense for the customer, long term, even if it means that they choose another provider. In an era of bustling technology, this is becoming increasingly more important. As a customer in an ever changing industry, it is wise to opt for a fully open protocol.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>As a team, we have come up with a few questions that will help a customer navigate these waters:</strong></p> <ol> <li>Can you give me list of several providers in the city that have all the software and materials necessary to service my property?</li> <li>Can you give me a list of other customers that have had these alternate providers work on this flavor of system?</li> <li>Where can I procure parts and software to fully work on my own system, should I so choose?</li> </ol> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>These three questions should prevent you from getting into something that will hand-cuff you for an indefinite period of time.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Also, don’t be fooled by a vendor’s definition of network protocols such as bacnet or LON. The key word is “proprietary.” Again, the key questions above should also help to navigate these waters.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>At the end of the day, find a provider that is going to give you the most flexibility and design the system that is best for <strong>your</strong> property.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Have a question for our experts?

Even though that is the case, if you’re a company running Office365 there is so much more you can be doing to protect yourself, your employees and your company. Microsoft has a simple way for you to understand best practices and ways to improve called <strong>Office365 Secure Score</strong>.</p> <p><span id="more-3770"></span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>There are a few straightforward security measures every person can take. This includes having a unique password and turning on multi-factor authentication for every critical online account. For detailed instructions on multi-factor please read my prior posts. This will stop criminals from taking over your accounts. Beyond email it&#8217;s critical everyone use a modern browser such as Chrome on the latest version plus add an ‘Ad Blocker’ extension.  Combine this with running a top notch anti-virus software and keep your operating system patched will drastically reduce your chance of malware and viruses.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>What if you work in a corporate environment? What if your company runs Office365? According to a 2016 study by Skyhigh, 91.4 percent of businesses with at least 100 users were running Office 365. That means if you’re reading this its highly likely your company is running Microsoft cloud based email called Office365.  This can be a great suite of tools when you combine email, filesharing in Onedrive, notetaking in OneNote and the online productivity tools in Office. However, Microsoft isn’t the best at everything and because they have a history as a large company they have a lot of software to keep updated and patched, which means they aren’t the best at security.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>If you’d like to protect your organization, then I recommend talking with your IT department to ensure they are verifying the company setup using Office365 Secure Score. Microsoft explains, Secure Score figures out what Office 365 services you&#8217;re using (like OneDrive, SharePoint, and Exchange) then looks at your settings and activities and compares them to a baseline established by Microsoft. Basically, Microsoft understands how to make the software more secure but can’t unilaterally make every change without companies verifying it will work within each enterprise environment.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Secure Score checks basic things like:</p> <ul> <li>Ensuring multi-factor is enabled for all administrative accounts</li> <li>Limiting the number of technology users with unlimited access</li> <li>Reviewing users accounts that are still active with no usage</li> <li>Ensuring settings like archiving are turned on</li> <li>Ensuring sharing of personal information is limited</li> <li>Verifying IT is looking at critical security reports</li> </ul> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img data-attachment-id="3771" data-permalink="http://blog.mckenneys.com/2017/12/how-secure-is-your-company-email/secure/" data-orig-file="https://i0.wp.com/blog.mckenneys.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/secure.jpg?fit=600%2C244" data-orig-size="600,244" data-comments-opened="1" data-image-meta="{&quot;aperture&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;credit&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;camera&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;caption&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;created_timestamp&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;copyright&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;focal_length&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;iso&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;shutter_speed&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;title&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;orientation&quot;:&quot;0&quot;}" data-image-title="secure" data-image-description="" data-medium-file="https://i0.wp.com/blog.mckenneys.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/secure.jpg?fit=300%2C122" data-large-file="https://i0.wp.com/blog.mckenneys.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/secure.jpg?fit=600%2C244" class="size-full wp-image-3771 aligncenter" src="https://i0.wp.com/blog.mckenneys.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/secure.jpg?resize=600%2C244" alt="" width="600" height="244" srcset="https://i0.wp.com/blog.mckenneys.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/secure.jpg?w=600 600w, https://i0.wp.com/blog.mckenneys.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/secure.jpg?resize=300%2C122 300w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" data-recalc-dims="1" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>This is all provided in a simple set of charts and graphs that shows how a company is performing against the industry.  Take the time today to share this blog with your IT professionals to ensure they are securing your organization with the tools that are already owned and provided.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>As a leader of my organization’s technology I review Office365 Secure Score weekly to look over the new recommendations and ensuring settings haven’t changed.

A rental chiller was used to maintain cooled air in the data center during the project. All base building air handling units were refurbished with new high efficiency motors, belts and sheaves. McKenney’s also repaired insulation and replaced chilled water coils on the first two floors.</div> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><em><strong>The Results</strong></em></p> <div id="three-col"> <div class="colside"> <div>All units were replaced safely and quickly while adhering to the owner’s stringent safety standards. As a result, the owner was able to lease the full building to a large insurance company and the new tenant has signed preventive maintenance agreements with McKenney’s on all supplemental equipment. The owner, also pleased with the cooling system upgrades, is continuing their relationship with the McKenney’s team.</div> </div> </div> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Have a question for our experts or want to see more <a href="http://www.mckenneys.com/Knowledgebase/Resources/ResourceMaterials.aspx">project highlights</a>?
