THE HOME PAPER
Modernizing the Business of Building
The Scleirce of Building Constrnctlon bad, a 1U crnd
beginning, the effort of primitive man to provide & ehelter
from the elements. In cave hewn out of rock, or mud huta
olldtfled by friendly wind and sun.
From the cave and mud-hut dweller day, to thla, to
Indeed a far cry; for during the intervening ageg man's
needs have multiplied, and with hla growing needs, the
science of building, enriched by the architecture of the
many periods, has made wonderful progress from the primi
tive, to Its present phase of commercialism and usefulness.
While It would be exceedingly interesting for us to
trace for you the thoughts of men as they progressed
through the ages, as these thoughts are reflected In the
architecture of the various periods, it would prove of little
practical value to either of us, except to show that the
stream of modern .building thought runs in an entirely dif
ferent direction than ever before.
Now-a-days when people are about to build, they con
sider usefulness and economy flrst, and art second., for the
reason that a large number of economlo conditions compel
them to do so; notable among which are: the Increase tn
the world's population, the facilities for rapid Inter-com-municatlon
and travel, the expansion of commerce, the
growth of cities, the rise of capital, the birth or new In
dustrie, the needs of labor, and the Increasing tendencies
of men to congregate and live and to seek pleasure within
the radius of a few municipal miles.
These conditions, and intensive population In particu
lar, are continually driving up land values, and the higher
the land values become, the more complicated becomes the
problems of providing the kind of building Improvements
that will satisfactorily return a sufficient Inootne on the
money Invested in the land.
This brings us, face to face with the very flrst and very
most important consideration of every prospective build
er, namely the subject of 'Economy" in building construc
tion; and since the economy of building construction hi
dependant upon the efficiency of the building methods em
ployed you will readily understand that the many compli
cated problems of the modern day builder must be con
sidered as a whole, rather than In parts.
It Is a significant fact that, despite the modern tend
ency to centralise great industries, that not nntll recent
years baa there been any effectual attempt made to es
tablish in building construction some semblance of or
Chief among the many reasons for this condition. Is
that the Building Construction Business, taken as a whole,
calls for the services of men in eight or more professions,
for the workmanship of forty-six or more trades and for the
selection and purchase of hundreds of various materials
products and devices.
In spite of the fast that the building professions and
il. 'nd bu,ldln8 material people all, have more or less
allied interests, they are, nevertheless, too diverse to be
welded Into a whole; on the other hand If they are allowed
to operate Independently, each individual Is liable to per
form his individual part of the work without appreciating
its relation to the whole.
i r.??' llTg,?lJ' to thl faot that maB7 tbotw en
gaged in the building construction business, are today

ing lack of ability on the part of the various building pro
fessions and trades to produce the kind of co-opefailve

mand It but there is a constantly growing and inslstant
tTnLtT? '"buyer' of bulldin service fo ? better
and more business-like methods, that will eliminate th. il
efficiency and uncertainty of the older day system!
As a result of this demand on the part of the prospec
tive building owner, and the complaint of many who are
already building owners who have suffered gross injustices
at the hands of the old time system; and as a result of
efforts, here and there, on the part of those engaged In
the business of building to overcome the faults complained
of, there have sprung up In different parts of the country
during the last few years Institutions who are applying
modern business methods to the building business.
These methods are the product of organisations, espe
cially equipped to handle as many lines of work, as can be
handled, efficiently, direct. They are called "Modern Build
Ing Organisations. "
Most of the modern building organisations ot today,
which are doing business In various parts ot the country
are highly specialised groups of men who specialise In
the work of handling monster building operations In the
country's large cities.
The Bankers Realty Investment Company In building
up a "Modern" Building Orgsnlxatlen" has had to go a
step farther than this
Besides equipping Itself to handle the large and com
plicated building structure. It has provided a method that

Contractor, the Mill Owner, together with the eervices of
the Loan Institution, has succeeded In building up th
kind of an organisation, that Is generally admitted among
Architects and Building Contractors, to be necessary, it
the old time system of conducting building operations Is
to be made more businesslike, from the view point of the
Contractors and Architects; as well as more economical
and definite from the view point of the building owner.
On October 12 Mr. H. L. Lewman, president of the
National Association of Builders' Exchangee In an address
to the Omaha Builders' Exchange, gave voice to this senti
ment by urging upon the contractors the use ot a revised
contract form and detailed specifications adopted by the
American Institute of Architects and the National Asso
ciation of Builders Exchanges, which, h stated, were
more specific than formerly and which gives to the owner
the benefit ot less cost and provides against waste and de
lay. He spoke along the llnea of co-operation and organi
sation, and he told tbe contractors. In effect, that a build
ing was a combination ot so many different elements, that
It was only by each individual sub-contractor properly
arranging hla work, as It related to the whole, that satis
factory results were to be obtained for building owners
and contractors alike.
Thle Is, In sffect, an Indorsement of the object, which
this Comsny and other largs building orgsntxstions of Its
kind are seeking to attain, which object Is, the giving to
building owner the ssme opportunity to know whst he is
buying, whsn he Is buying building service, as when he'
buys any sUndsrd article of merchandise.

right to choose; and to know definitely what he has to
pay, before h buys.
