Informational Interview I had the chance to interview Barry Smith the vice president for Taggart Construction and my head coach for the St. Lawrence Vikings men's basketball team. Barry Smith has been working with Taggart Construction for 35 years now starting out in the company he was hired as a junior estimator. Barry started out working in the office bidding jobs which he didn't like that's where he went to the President of the company asking to be out on the job field. Being in charge of a crew and heavy equipment now he began to love his job just at the age of 25. Barry educational background started from he went to the University of Ottawa for two years majoring in Civil Engineering although he didn't like it he later moved on to Algonquin College to study Civil Technology. The biggest challenges I had when I was preparing for the interview was coming up with questions to ask Barry Smith. What I have learned in the meeting was how to have a conversation with a business professional in a business environment. Being the vice president how is your communication skills with your employees was one of the main questions I asked Mr. Smith. Listening, directing and facilitating to his employees is at the top of his list, I felt that this was important because it allows his employees to have the confidence to bring their ideas to him for a better company. I really appreciated and was very pleased that I had the opportunity to interview Mr. Smith although he has a very busy schedule. My Interview with Mr. Smith opened my eyes on what it takes to be successful. This was a great opportunity for me to keep working hard in class and one day soon be a president for a company. Following the interview I sent Mr. Smith a thank you card thanking him for his time and patience with me.

Barry Smith of Taggart Construction says his workforce is down 50 per cent from what it should be. Taggart is one of the area's three big sewer contractors and is bidding on contracts outside the city in order to provide work for employees. "Once we leave town and take on another job it means there's not as much competition and it means the city is going to be paying higher prices," Smith said. In addition to its heavy construction business, Taggart has a development arm that is providing some jobs. "If we didn't have our own subdivisions to service, we wouldn't have anybody working," Smith said.

"I think most developers and most homebuilders are in favour of anything that's going to save energy, and obviously clotheslines are going to save energy," says Barry Smith, president of Kingston Home Builders Association.

...
"I don't know if other homebuilders' associations in other cities are against the (new regulation), and I stand corrected on this, but they are not against grandfathering it," Smith says.
"In other words, there are some subdivisions that will allow clotheslines and some won't.To make it universal and going backwards â€" how do you put that onto somebody that's bought a house?"
In order for existing clothesline bans to expire, Smith says everybody in a particular subdivision, or a particular phase of a subdivision (e.g. one phase of Greenwood Park subdivision on Hwy. 15 has the ban), must agree on having the clause taken off the restrictive covenant put on the land.
"That's going to be difficult and whose responsibility is it?Is it the developer who's been out there for 10 years, or is it the municipality or the provincial government who wants to take it on?"he says.
