AOC Show 164/Indoor-Outdoor Living Series: Big Doors & Automation Can't Be an Afterthought

David Haynes

Turner Fleischer

Ben Collins, Owner of Morrison Millwork, and Patrick Gruetzmacher, CEO of Summit Automation, join us on this episode 164 of Art of Construction.

We are so excited to be offering you this Deep Dive Series, Indoor-Outdoor Living brought to you by Summit Automation. In this series we will be diving deep into Big Doors! Many words are used to describe this hot trend like Moving Walls, Scenic Doors and alike, but no matter which term we use it is undeniable that floor to ceiling glass is the new big thing in home construction. What does this mean for contractors and affiliates? What adaptions must we make to take this new approach to design and construction head-on and use it to grow our business? Joined by PJ Gruetmacher, CEO of Summit Automation, we will be interviewing three owners of window & door dealerships across the US to find out the answers to those questions and so much more!

In this first episode, Ben Collins tells us all about what he’s done with his company Morrison Millwork to tackle the growing Big Door trend head-on, some of the biggest obstacles he’s faced along the way, and how he’s used the power of teamwork and strategic partnerships to overcome those obstacles. And PJ, being the owner of an automation company who allows these huge doors to move effortlessly, chimes in on the importance of planning and thinking ahead in order to prepare a home for a fully automated Moving Wall System.

When it comes to evolving the way we build buildings, tribe, the only way we can truly do it is together. When it comes to Big Doors, success requires coordination between manufactures, custom builders and dealers alike. Thankfully, that sort of network is exactly what Summit Automation and Morrison Millwork are aiming to create.

Join Devon as he goes on a journey with Ben and PJ at Glass Build America 2019 in Atlanta to uncover all there is to know about the new Indoor-Outdoor Living Movement!
