A Bit of Logic February 2017

A Note from Leadership

We are starting off 2017 with exciting news! Interior Logic Group has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire multi-family remodel industry-leader Criterion Brock! Criterion Brock is one of the nation’s leading installers of carpet, vinyl and hard-surface flooring for the multifamily remodel industry. They have nearly thirty-five years of experience and fifteen major markets around the United States, including:

  • Albuquerque, NM
  • L.A. Metro, CA
  • San Antonio, TX
  • Austin, TX
  • Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX
  • Denver, CO
  • Houston, TX
  • Las Vegas, NV
  • Phoenix, AZ
  • Portland, OR
  • Sacramento, CA
  • San Diego, CA
  • San Francisco, CA
  • Seattle, WA
  • Tucson, AZ

The addition of Criterion Brock gives ILG its first entry into the multifamily remodel segment and the expertise of one of the most well-respected teams in the flooring industry. Both companies plan to use this opportunity to leverage what the other has built with respect to technology, infrastructure, capabilities and relationships with customers and suppliers. Our current plan will be to close the transaction by the end of the first quarter, at which time Criterion Brock will officially become part of ILG. All leadership roles, both at Criterion Brock and at ILG, will remain the same and we will continue to drive our business each and every day as we have always done. - Jason

Shea Trilogy Wickenburg

Interior Logic opened its newest studio at Trilogy Wickenburg in July of 2016. Our Design Studio is located in the Stellare Model within the community’s Model Park. While it is a smaller space that forced us to get a bit more creative and efficient with our product display, the in-home feel has made for a very comfortable design experience for our new home buyers. Since we are located within the Model Park, our designers often make several trips to visit the buyer’s model during their design appointment, which helps them to visualize the plan more clearly when designing flooring, wall tile, etc. Working onsite has also been extremely beneficial in improving the communication between our Shea sales staff and construction team; as opposed to the typical off-site design studio when much of the builder communication is conducted by phone/email and the rare in-person team meeting. We conducted our first design appointment in early August and have since seen 40 new home buyers. We’ve also completed 50 new “designer homes”/spec homes for Shea, aiding in their efforts to ramp up to 4 starts a week. We are looking forward to their projected growth this year. And while it is a bit of a drive, we’d love to have you all stop by to visit our beautiful new site!

Getting to Know...

Tara Carrisoza

I am a native Arizonan and mother of two. I have a design degree from ASU. Go Devils! I’ve been in construction about 15 years, flooring about 12. I enjoy reading, cooking, traveling, and camping. The husband and I can usually be found dragging the kids outside to play, ride bikes, hike, and visit museums or various sporting events. And, my morning coffee is the only thing that keeps my world spinning!

Just Say Thanks

On 01/05/2016 at 2:00 PM, an SOS call was sent out to the Customer Service Technicians to assist with a project at the Wespac Borgata Condominium project. IL was under a contractual obligation to have the first three floors in building B completed by January 06, 2017. There were six patios that needed completed and the original installer failed to show up to complete the job. The call for assistance went out to the Customer Service Technicians, the below listed 8 Technicians responded and with the assistance of Daniel Dorame, the Technician assigned to this project (not in the photograph), and under the supervision of Field Manager Richard Pond (not in the photograph), they were able to complete all six patios by 6:30 PM, meeting IL’s commitment to Wespac. Great Job!

Health & Wellness

February is American Heart Month

The perfect gift this Valentine’s Day is the gift of heart health. Along with Valentine’s Day, February marks American Heart Month, a great time to commit to a healthy lifestyle and make small changes that can lead to a lifetime of heart health. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women. That's why this February during American Heart Month, the American Heart Association is encouraging everyone to take charge of their health and start one new, heart-healthy behavior that can help reduce their risk of heart disease and stroke.

Small Changes Can Make a Big Difference

  • Schedule a visit with your doctor to talk about heart health. It's important to schedule regular check-ups even if you think you are not sick. Partner with your doctor and health care team to set goals for improving your heart health, and don't be afraid to ask questions and trust their advice. Remember with the Interior Logic benefits plan, yearly wellness visits are covered. Go to the UMR website to find a Physician or search for other services.
  • Add exercise to your daily routine. Start off the month by walking 15 minutes, 3 times each week. By mid-month, increase your time to 30 minutes, 3 times each week. Check out this list of 33 Smart Ways to Exercise at Work
  • Increase healthy eating. Cook heart-healthy meals at home at least 3 times each week and make your favorite recipe lower sodium. For example, swap out salt for fresh or dried herbs and spices. Click Here for the American Heart Association Simple Cooking Recipes webpage. Newsletter editors pick? Try the Herbed Chicken on Grits with Squash and Tomatoes, or make these Egg “Muffin” cups for a quick weekday breakfast on the go.
  • Take steps to quit smoking. If you currently smoke, quitting can cut your risk for heart disease and stroke. Click here to learn more at CDC's Smoking and Tobacco Use website.
  • Take medication as prescribed. Talk with your doctor about the importance of high blood pressure and cholesterol medications. If you're having trouble taking your medicines on time or if you're having side effects, ask your doctor for help.
