Then and Now: Associated General Contractors building

The Associated General Contractors of America formed in 1918 to represent commercial contractors who build everything from schools and office buildings to roads and bridges. In 1919, Spokane builders started their own chapter, which was officially chartered in April 1921.

For almost 100 years, the Inland Northwest AGC, a nonprofit trade association, has advocated on behalf of builders, subcontractors and industry service providers. For many years, the group had offices in the old Spokane Hotel at Sprague Avenue and Washington Street.

In 1958, the group built their own office building at 4935 E. Trent Ave. It was a modest building, with just a lounge, conference rooms, three offices and a catering kitchen.

The small building is an example of midcentury modern architecture from the firm of Royal McClure and Tom Adkison, who graduated in the same class at the University of Washington and practiced together in Spokane from 1947 to 1967.

The style, now called midcentury modern, which has been called harsh and sterile by some and elegant and sophisticated by others, was championed by a handful of Spokane architects, including Bruce Walker, Kenneth Brooks and John McGough, among others.

After McClure struck out on his own and moved to Seattle, Adkison was made the executive architect for Expo ’74, which encompassed the massive redevelopment of the downtown and riverfront area.

Hundreds of midcentury modern examples are catalogued at midcenturyspokane.org, a 2016 project of the Spokane City/County Historic Preservation Office and Spokane Historic Landmarks Commission.

The AGC building was redesigned and renovated in 2002. The firm of Bernardo|Wills Architects expanded the building, matched the original concrete façade and added an atrium. Many of the AGC membership, which includes the region’s largest commercial contractors, donated their skilled tradesmen to complete the building.

Among the services AGC provides is specialty training in

General Contractor Overhead And Profit And AOB Insurance Scams

A storm is rising, and it is not the type which causes damage to homes and vehicles. It causes damage of a much more insidious nature. Following a storm or other natural disaster, canvassers hired by the “hail cartel”—lawyers or opportunistic general contractors—can be found blanketing a neighborhood and knocking on doors.

“I’m here to get you a new roof,” the canvasser says. They tell the innocent homeowner that he or she has roof damage that they may not have noticed and that they are entitled to 20% more for “general contractor overhead and profit,” even if no general contractor is necessary. They locate and fabricate damages which either did not exist or were pre-existing and ask the homeowner to sign an Assignment of Benefits (AOB) and promise them a new roof at no cost and with no hassle on their part.

This is repeated thousands of times across entire zip codes. A lawsuit is quickly filed against the insurance company, even before they are given notice of a claim. Policyholders are misinformed, contractors circumvent statutory and policy guidelines, contractors and general adjusters inflate damages, and attorneys apply mass tort models with the promise of large attorney’s fees to simple property damage claims.

Claim solicitation efforts such as these have ensnared innocent homeowners in unnecessary lawsuits in recent years by promising big payouts at no cost following hail or other natural disasters. The result of the widespread scheme is higher insurance premiums and less choice in insurance companies throughout many states. AOB scams have become the largest cost-driver in the insurance industry and are having a widespread, detrimental effect on consumers across the country. The mess they create complicates and makes more difficult the carrier’s efforts to subrogate a loss if and when there is a third party responsible for
