BY HBSDealer Staff

San Marcos, Texas-based McCoy’s Building Supply promoted Meagan McCoy Jones to the position of VP field support.

In her new position, Jones will continue to focus on improving the efficiencies of the 83-store lumber and hardware retailer.

Jones is the fourth generation to work in her family business, who joined the business in 2005. She was named a 2011 San Marcos Shining Star Under 40 by the San Marcos Chamber of Commerce.

“It’s a blessing to do what I love every day with a family and team I care about even more,” Jones said.  “Our task is to give our customers the best products with the finest service possible, and it is a blast. We will continue to grow as people, grow our company, and innovate in our industry – we have a strong future ahead of us.”

Jones is a member of the Board of Directors of McCoy Corporation and serves the Lumbermen’s Association of Texas (LAT) as co-chair of the legislative committee. She is also a Trustee of LUMPAC, LAT’s political action committee, and a member of the Board of Directors for the Home Builders Association of Greater Austin. 

Jones joined McCoy’s working as part-time salesperson at the retailer’s Georgetown, Texas location while pursuing her Master’s degree in Communication Studies from the University of Texas. Upon graduation, she joined McCoy’s full-time in the Corporate Development department with the specific goal of learning all facets of the company’s headquarters operations. During that time, Jones also worked with the Texas Legislature on behalf of McCoy’s to revise the Business Franchise Tax, Lien Laws and more recently tax exemption procedures for agriculture and timber industries. 

McCoy’s Building Supply was named the 2009 Pro Dealer of the Year by Home Channel News.

Agency proposes flood damage standard for building materials

BY Brae Canlen

ASTM International, one of the world’s largest international standards development agencies, has proposed a new standard that will provide a comprehensive way to evaluate building materials used in basements and other below-base flood elevation construction.

The proposed new standard will establish methods for determining flood damage resistance ratings (either acceptable or unacceptable) of materials and assemblies for use below the lowest floor of new and substantially damaged structures, in accordance with the National Flood Insurance Program’s requirements for being flood damage-resistant.

The proposed new standards may be used as evaluation criteria for manufacturers to evaluate their products and for local building officials to use when enforcing requirements for materials in below-BFE construction.

"The end goal is to have materials certified as flood damage-resistant, to facilitate consistent use of building code provisions for materials used in below-BFE construction," said Julia Moline, a project engineer with Dewberry and a member of ASTM International Committee E06 on Performance of Buildings.

"Designers and developers who specify flood damage-resistant materials in building design and construction, building officials enforcing building code provisions and homeowners seeking certified flood damage-resistant materials will all benefit from the proposed standard, once it has been approved," Moline said. The ASTM committee on this standard next meets in April 2012.

It is important to constantly reevaluate the flood resistance standard for building materials because it certainly accounts for human life and property damages. Though contractors have to constantly be on the know when it comes to new standards, nothing should be spared when it comes to safety.

Parker Lumber to close in Florida

BY HBSDEALER Staff

After 77 years, Parker Lumber is closing in Maitland, Fla., to make way for a commuter rail station, according to an article in the Orlando Sentinel.

The Florida’s Department of Transportation wants almost two acres of the property for an entryway and a 125-space parking lot at a proposed station just north of City Hall. A department spokesman said the deal with Parker Lumber won’t be final until late December, but the price tag is about $1.5 million.

Lumber orders and hardware sales have declined since 2006, owner Larry Parker told the newspaper. The business his great-grandfather started as a sawmill in 1934 will begin a liquidation sale soon, he said.
