Past News Releases


Though they work in one of the largest commercial construction industries in the Southeast, metro Atlanta construction professionals have not had a media source to turn to for local news and information exclusively about their industry. Publisher Lawrence Cohen is looking to change that. Cohen's company, REM Publishing, recently launched Commercial Building Savvy Magazine, a new bi-monthly trade magazine for metro Atlanta's commercial construction community.

No stranger to trade publications, REM is already well-known for R.E. Real Estate Magazine, one of the most well-read journals for metro Atlanta's residential real estate industry. Their new magazine, which launched in the fall of 2008, will initially direct-mail to approximately 5,000 commercial building professionals, including developers, general contractors, subcontractors, architects, facility managers, vendors and service suppliers.

Designed to fill a huge void in the industry by providing both local and national news and information about commercial construction, the publication will focus on the positive accomplishments of the people and organizations involved in this exciting industry. Each issue, readers will be treated to the most important news about the people and companies in the area, as well as feature profiles about outstanding companies, products and technical innovations, local events and a Builders' Resource Directory.

Commercial Building Savvy has already allied itself with several key commercial trade associations, including the American Subcontractors' Association, American Institute of Architects, Master Roofing Contractors Association of Georgia, Georgia Wall & Ceiling Industries Association, and the International Facility Management Association. Association members will all receive the magazine free of charge.

"Metro Atlanta has one of the most dynamic commercial construction industries in the country," said publisher Lawrence Cohen. "With over five million people, the area continues to lead the country in both population and business growth. Commercial Building Savvy fills a much needed gap in the industry for a local commercial construction trade publication. The magazine delivers information that is important, interesting and relevant to the local market. Commercial Building Savvy focuses exclusively on the news, people, events and legislation happening here in Metro Atlanta."

In their premier issue, Commercial Building Savvy's cover story is a profile on the well-known Choate Construction Company. One of the largest general contractors in the southeast, the award winning company provides preconstruction, construction, program management and design/build services to virtually all markets including residential, manufacturing, office, retail, etc., with one of the industry's strongest reputations as a quality construction company.

Founded in 2008, Commercial Building Savvy is a trade magazine for and about the metro Atlanta commercial construction industry. Featuring profiles of local contractors, subcontractors, and other construction-related businesses, as well as educational columns, events calendars and local news, the magazine offers a fresh, new local perspective of the people and businesses that make up the local commercial building industry. Commercial Building Savvy is published by Marietta-based REM Publishing. For more information about Commercial Building Savvy, visit or call 770-956-7100.
