Charlie Hanna has an unusually diverse overview of the construction industry. En route to earning his Civil Engineering degree from Georgia Tech, he served a four year apprenticeship to become a Journeyman Bricklayer. Although he has been a contractor and a VP of an international architectural engineering company, most of his experience has been for the benefit of the owner of a project, rather than the professional providing the service. As a consultant for many homeowners, world class companies and the State of New Jerseys affordable housing, advice was provided to save both time and money. This information is now available for the reader of this book.
