We’ll talk about environmental health issues and the rapidly evolving legal landscape. We’ll look at the tough economy and the opportunities it presents. From time to time, we’ll interview authorities and experts in the field to gain their valuable perspectives on pressing issues. And we’ll talk about “going green.” how plays into the way we run our businesses, the way we design, construct and retrofit our buildings, and the way we heat, cool, and clean them.

We know working in maintenance is an exciting and sometimes overwhelming time. That’s why we’ll do our best to put things in perspective and help you relate the little details to the big picture. From a corporate point of view, our goal is to have as much interaction as possible with Just Venting readers and Goodway customers.
