                RE: PPEA – Conceptual Proposal for Hotel & Conference Center

Dear Mr. Russell:

Collegiate Hospitality, LLC and our Development Manager, Concord Eastridge, Inc
thoughtfully and strategically have assembled a focused Development Team to respond to
the advertisement of your having received unsolicited proposals for the development of a
Hotel & Conference Center at the Fairfax Campus of George Mason University. The
Concord Eastridge team fully embraces the importance and significance of creating a
synergistic planned development that will bring together private-sector expertise to support
academic infrastructure needs and ultimately create a special facility to foster a 21st Century
university such as George Mason.

In order to create a visionary, high quality, and financially viable project, the University will

experience, possesses the creativity and flexibility required to realize both the immediate
urgent facility needs of the University as well as the long term vision of the overall campus
development. In 2004, Concord Eastridge was chosen by Arizona State University to
complete the master plan, design, financing, construction and overall turnkey development
its large-scale Arts and Business Gateway project in downtown Tempe, Arizona, a 2.2
million-square-foot, $600 million mixed use complex. Concord Eastridge was selected from
a field of 16 national development teams representing the largest real estate development
organizations in the United States.

advertisement for Conceptual Proposals. We trust you will find the enclosed information

                             Harrison Lodging, we are now the largest management company in the
                             conference center and collegiate hotels niche of the lodging industry. Harrison

                             excellence in the conference center industry. With historic conference centers in

                             clients and finding ways to create solutions. With the Complete Meeting Package

                             needs of meeting planners for ease of cost management.

                             to hospitality, and our hallmark conference services that feature first-class

                       Evaluating the market and economic feasibility of a hotel, restaurant, marina, casino,
                       golf course or other hospitality or recreational project prior to making a major
                       financial commitment is an essential aspect of sound investment decision making.

                       PKF Consulting sets the standard for market and feasibility studies. As such,
                       owners, investors, operators and lenders have the confidence in our ability to
                       provide them with the highest quality market feasibility studies whether they are
                       considering investing in a new project, the repositioning or renovation of an existing
                       asset, or the takeover of an operating property.

                       Although we can tailor the scope of the study to meet the unique requirements of
                       each individual project, typically our market and feasibility studies incorporate the
                       following research and analyses:

                           •        Area Review - The area review takes into consideration the
                                    economic and demographic character of the market within which
                                    the project currently operates, or will be developed.
                           •        Site Analysis - Given the importance of location, we carefully
                                    evaluate the characteristics of the site, enumerating its advantages
                                    and disadvantages relating to operational goals.
                           •        Supply and Demand - As the basis for our estimates of the future
                                    operating performance of the project under consideration, we
                                    perform an in-depth analysis of the supply and demand
                                    characteristics of the competitive market.
                           •        Position of the Subject Project in the Market - Our research and
                                    analyses become part of your area, site, and supply and demand
                                    reviews. This information allows us to determine the most
                                    probable position of your project relative to its market.
                                    This phase of the study results in estimates of the future
                                    top-line (revenues) operating performance of your asset.

                       •        Estimated Financial Statements - Using our understanding of the
                                operating dynamics of the type of operation under consideration,
                                information generated from our data base of comparable
                                operating statistics allows us to generate estimates of future
                                bottom-line (net operating income) results. Typically these
                                estimates include detailed projections of departmental and
                                overhead line items.
                       •        Project Recommendations - As part of our market and feasibility

                                of the competitive market, relative to the project concept and

                   With MAI (Member Appraisal Institute) professionals on staff, PKF Consulting is
                   able to provide appraisals of all types of real estate assets. Using our market and
                   feasibility analysis as a base, through the appraisal process, we then value an asset by
                   reconciling the Income Capitalization Approach, the Cost Approach, and the Sales
                   Comparison Approach.

                   In cases where a full MAI appraisal is not required, or when the operating entity is
                   separate from the underlying real estate, we also provide economic valuations of all
                   types of hospitality and tourism-related businesses.

                                of an already developed destination, a physical inventory is taken
                                of all the existing tourism-related infrastructure and
                                superstructure facilities. The inventory is then used as a base for
                                projecting future market supply and demand, for estimating
                                future infrastructure needs, and for evaluating the need for
                                additional superstructure.

                   has grown to become the largest and most diverse public affairs firm in the
                   Commonwealth of Virginia.

                   Building upon the success of the PPTA, McGuireWoods Consulting drafted
                   legislation, at the request of Senator Walter Stosch, to create the Public-Private
                   Education Facilities and Infrastructure Act of 2002 (PPEA). Team members,
                   including Frank Atkinson, Chris Lloyd, Steve Horton, Tracy Baynard, Mark
                   Bowles, and Eric Finkbeiner, lobbied the General Assembly and the Warner
                   administration to secure overwhelming support for this initiative despite
                   significant opposition.

                   The act extends the partnership concept pioneered in the PPTA to the
                   development of all types of infrastructure, including schools, public buildings,
                   water and wastewater infrastructure, and communications systems. Both solicited

                   local and state government decision-makers regarding the opportunities created
                   by the legislation.

                   McGuireWoods has extensive experience in the drafting and negotiation of
                   agreements with public and private parties governing privatization initiatives,

Qualifications &

                   •         McGuireWoods attorneys developed the concept and statutory language
                   for the Virginia’s Transportation Improvement District Act, and then provided
                   comprehensive legal services related to the following projects financed pursuant
                   to that statute:

                   •         Route 28 (Fairfax/Loudoun): $167 million project to improve a two-
                   lane facility to four and six lanes with several major interchanges.

                   build a new four-lane facility and major interchange at Interstate 95 north of
                   Potomac Mills using a combination of state allocation monies and FHA monies;
                   completed in 1996.

                   facility opened in 1998.

                   Each of these projects required the organization of complex multi-party
                   negotiations among the General Assembly, the CTB, VDOT, the local counties,
                   the landowners, and often FHA landowners. McGuireWoods attorneys managed

                            45,000 students. The facility will serve the many internal needs of ASU, which
                            are currently constrained by a shortage of quality guest rooms and meeting
                            space in Tempe. Initial studies indicate that more than 65% of the facility’s
                            availability will be absorbed by direct ASU demand.

                    aspects of the design, development and construction for both phases of the
                    project. Concord assisted in the formulation and implementation of the private
                    placement bond financing, which closed in early April 1998. Concord took the
                    lead role in generating full project budgets, timelines and construction

                    Concord also played significant roles in the physical re-design and pricing of

                    PROJECT DESCRIPTION
                    The Hotel Thayer is a historic hotel located just inside the main gate of the
                    United States Military Academy in West Point, New York. The project involved
                    the renovation of the existing 130-room hotel, all public areas and all back-of-
                    house areas.

                    Phase II is the construction of a 125-room expansion plus new conference
                    facilities, meeting rooms, pool and spa.

                    Programmed for a three-year development period (from start to finish), this
                    project involved historic preservation approvals, historic tax credit financing,
                    ADA and building code upgrades, negotiation with local community groups,
                    resolution of public-private partnership issues, creation of economic and
                    operating pro formas and interface with multi-level, civilian-military
                    participants. Concord was directly responsible for assessing and managing risk-
                    reward concerns, formulating strategic action plans, establishing milestone
  CONCORD           schedules, evaluating hard and soft cost budgets and generating detailed
                    development reports.
                    Concord Eastridge is currently evaluating the feasibility of Phase II at this time.

neighborhoods           published, a Land Use Plan and a Cultural District Plan.

Confidential            PROJECT DESCRIPTION
                        The Land Use Plan was conceived and executed as a general land use plan for a
OWNER                   very large (150-block) area, encompassing the entire Howard campus and three
Fannie Mae Foundation   separate residential neighborhoods. As a companion study to The Land Use
/                       Plan, an additional study focusing on the proposed Cultural District in LeDroit
Howard University       Park was prepared by Concord. The Cultural District Plan focused on specific
                        projects recommended in a several block area centered on the intersection of
                        Florida and Georgia Avenues.

                        Following a comprehensive Land Use Plan, this study provided a block by
                        block analysis and feasibility study for the central district of LeDroit Park.

                        To enhance the usefulness of the Cultural District study, draft financial pro
                        formas were created for each of the proposed projects. In addition to providing
                        information on the current land ownership and zoning status of affected
                        parcels, these financial projections also calculated potential land and
                        construction costs for each project. The Cultural District Plan and the

                     Centex Construction was commissioned to expand and renovate
                     the Inter-Continental Houston hotel, formerly the Crowne Plaza
                     Hotel. Located in the heart of Houston’s uptown district, the new
                     hotel is just one block from the famed Galleria, fine dining and
                     entertainment venues. Additionally, the hotel is a convenient
                     address and less than 10 miles from Houston's downtown,
                     museum district, Medical Center, George R. Brown Convention
                     Center, Reliant Park and Astrodome, and major sporting facilities.

                     The project scope included a 86,000 square foot addition to the
                     existing hotel which houses an elegant ballroom, prefunction,
                     fully-equipped health club and new kitchen facilities. Additionally,

                     landscaping, porte cochere, lobby area, hotel bar and
                     administration areas. Because of the increased scale of the hotel,
                     additional parking was needed. Centex Construction built an
                     90,000 square foot, five level cast in place concrete garage.

Beverly Hills, CA

                        Beverly Hilton Hotel 582 Keys

                    As Executive Architect working with Hirsch Bedner Associates, Gensler is
                    renovating the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The 582-room icon hotel is located on
                    approximately 9-acres at the intersection of Wilshire and Santa Monica
                    Boulevards in Beverly Hills, California. The team has begun an extensive
                    renovation to elevate The Beverly Hilton's prominence as a world-class, four-
                    star hotel. The plan is to reposition The Beverly Hilton as the destination for
                    savvy business and leisure travelers as well as locals.

                    The new design respects the contemporary architecture by creating an urban
                    oasis. The vision is to bring the outdoors inside by highlighting the use of
                    natural light, outdoor spaces, water features, pool vistas and landscaping. A
                    warm color palette with natural stone and wood accents combined with tailored
                    yet relaxed furniture creates a sense of modern elegance throughout the hotel.
                    In addition, the public spaces will be activated and upgraded offering enhanced
                    choices in dining, shopping and leisure for the hotel guests and local patrons.

                    The proposed renovation includes improvements to the hotel guest rooms and
                    interior public spaces, including ballrooms, conference areas, lobbies, and
                    service and retail areas, as well as pool and courtyard areas. We have paid
                    particular attention to the wayfinding of the hotel, and have re-named the
                    public areas to reflect a clear message to visitors. Gensler’s Studio 585’s has led
                    the hotel through a rebranding effort that mirrors the feeling of old Hollywood
                    glamour guests have experienced at the hotel for decades.

                   Gensler designed this four-star 1,500 room hotel and 500,000 square foot
                   convention center (2 million square feet total) for Gaylord Hotels on a 45-acre
                   waterfront site on the Potomac River. Gaylord has a distinct brand of atrium
                   hotel and convention centers, but was challenged in this case to integrate their
                   property into the National Harbor Master Plan as well as the greater
                   Washington community.

                   Gensler’s design takes full advantage of the site along the Potomac River,
                   orienting the main programmatic functions towards the water. The two main
                   floors of the Convention Center overlook the river and invite the panoramic
                   views into the space. The hotel is organized around a light filled atrium with
                   interior balconies defining the upper edges and restaurants and hotel functions
                   spilling into the lower atrium. The atrium space opens onto the river view and
                   the atrium floor gently terraces down to meet the river’s edge and waterfront
                   pier, reminiscent of grand lake hotels of an earlier era.

Mountain, CO

                   Copper Mountain Resort Copper Mountain, Colorado

                   Gensler designed a new 41,500 sf facility at the base of Copper Mountain,
                   adjacent to the ski lifts. The client's goal was to centralize recreational and day
                   skier services and to respond to the growing demand for full conference
                   facilities during the resort’s off-season. Gensler's design solution was to create a
                   facility in a “Mountain Victorian” style that incorporated a high level of identity
                   from both the adjacent Interstate highway and the ski slopes. In addition to the
                   new building, the project scope includes programming for the existing 34,000-
                   square-foot ski center building. Gensler addressed such master planning issues
                   as skier movement, public walkways and transportation, architectural design
                   and interior renovation.

                   The new building features a “mountain level,” providing a 1000-skier great hall,
                   a full service kitchen, a prefunction area and a ski patrol facility. At the lower
                   “village level” the building provides meeting rooms, an intimate apres-ski bar
                   and employee facilities. Two towers define the entrances at the plaza and
                   mountain levels. Heavy timber trusses, wood decking, stucco, and field stone
                   are used to create a warm atmosphere, with dormer windows providing light as
                   well as stunning views of the mountains.

                   the nearby convention center. Its curved shape frames the entry to the Paseo de
                   San Antonio, a north-south pedestrian walkway that extends from the heart of
                   the city to the university campus. Two-story storefronts along its base reinforce
                   the Paseo as a downtown retail corridor and create an interactive experience
                   through projecting retail signage. Gensler linked the new addition to the
                   existing property with a glass walled expansion bridge.

Boulder, CO

                   Colorado University at Boulder’s University Memorial Center

                   The 130,000 sf expansion and renovation of CU Boulder's University Memorial
                   Center has transformed a dark, disorienting building into a sunlit axis
                   connecting the university's “front door” to the student “front door.” The
                   Loggia is a 30 foot wide linear space which acts as an organizational element for
                   the building, connecting the new addition to the existing building. The four
                   major goals of the project were to create a welcoming environment for
                   students, faculty, and the general public; incorporate the latest technology;
                   respect the architecture of the existing building and the campus context; and
                   incorporate sustainable design.

                   The new addition included the expansion of the bookstore, added 18,000 sf of
                   offices for student groups and services, created a 5,500 sf public area with a
                   five-story atrium, and provided approximately 24,000 sf of conference and
                   meeting areas and a multi-purpose room. Among the renovated areas are the
                   Glenn Miller Ballroom, the credit union, and food service facilities.

Houston, TX

                   Fred Parks Law Library at the South Texas College of Law

                   Gensler’s completion of the new Fred Parks Law Library at South Texas
                   College of Law provided the opportunity to design a new ‘courtroom of the
                   future’ at the school. This adaptive reuse project involves the conversion and
                   replanning of the old library into a courtroom complex at the heart of the law
                   school that reflects the tradition, integrity and dignity of the legal profession. It
                   provides a flexible venue for training and practice, as well as a place for
                   receptions and celebrations.

                   The new 4,000-square foot moot court is a state of the art facility that allows
                   students to train and practice their advocacy skills within the context of the
                   tradition and dignity of the law profession. It accommodates the latest in
                   technology while maintaining court decorum, incorporating current computer
                   and video technology including the capability to function as a broadcast facility.

                   Additionally, an 11,000-square foot Student Development Center was
                   implemented to assist the students, faculty and local legal community with
                   departmental services including Career Services, the Frank Evans Center for
                   Conflict Resolution, the Development Office, Continuing Legal Education and

                      business education space and well being facility for the complex.

                      In addition to providing a place for delivering their leadership development

Redwood Shores,

                   Oracle Corporation

                   High-speed growth is great. Unless it means your facility's meeting rooms are
                   so full, people keep having to conduct meetings in hotels. So Oracle
                   Corporation asked us to design an on-campus conference center that could
                   compete successfully for the business of its employees. And the facility had to
                   express its community function, while fitting the campus's modern character.
                   Since we'd already designed the other six buildings on the campus, we knew
                   just how to do that.

                   Given a tight infill site, we clustered uses that needed strict light control —
                   auditorium, broadcast facilities — toward the back of facility. At the street
                   edge, we placed classrooms and a two-story lobby in an open, finely detailed
                   volume. Extensive glazing highlights the facility's active nature.

                   The state-of-the-art auditorium facilitates large sales force meetings as well as
                   the big media events Oracle holds for new product launches. We collaborated
                   extremely closely with the interior designer, to ensure a seamless fit between
                   architecture and interiors — key in a building with an interior that's so visible
                   from outside.

Lancaster, PA

                   Armstrong World Industries Conference Center

                   Armstrong World Industries went through a number of campus renovations in
                   the late 1990s aimed at rebuilding their corporate culture around customer
                   needs and a new focus on innovation. In addition to a new headquarters
                   building and multiple renovations, Gensler created their partially sunken Multi-
                   Purpose Conference Center adjacent to the new administration building
                   connects below grade to an existing renovated building.

                   Its expressive interior exposes the inverted truss roof structure, enriched by
                   clerestory light from a sculpted rooftop element. The flexible arrangement seats
                   400 people for company presentations, training, and exhibitions.

                   The new buildings used sustainable building methods throughout to maintain
                   Armstrong’s respect for the natural site and the general environment.
                   Xeriscaping, the use of native drought-resistant plant species, facilitated a
                   smooth transition to the new building and maintained balance for existing
                   plantings. Engineering and facility controls, tied to campus-wide facilities
                   management software, allow centralized and efficient cycle management, critical
                   to maintaining comfort for the conference center and work spaces.

CONSULTANT         We have been active in this field for over 20 years and were instrumental in the
                   establishment of and remain active in the International Association of
                   Conference Centers. Our clients include developers, lenders, management
                   companies, corporations, colleges and universities and public agencies.

                   studies and then operational reviews, management consultation, and asset
                   management. A description of this work follows:

                           Preliminary Consultation - Typically this involves discussion of
                           the basic facility concept, the initial business plan, preliminary

                           meeting activity of corporations and universities to assess the

                           extensive research into the performance of comparable or
                           competitive facilities.

                           Financial Feasibility - We combine our market findings with
                           development cost estimates and debt and equity assumptions
                           to perform a financial feasibility analysis. We also provide
                           appraisal services.

                           Management and Operational Consulting - This includes
                           compensation and benefit studies, operations reviews, review

Qualifications &

                   McGuireWoods is a leading authority in tax-exempt financings for institutions
                   of higher education, as well as for private secondary and elementary schools.
                   Over the last 20 years, we have served as bond counsel, underwriter's counsel,
                   school counsel, issuer's counsel or lender's counsel on transactions large and
                   small, from more than $100,000,000 for the University of Virginia, to
                   $1,000,000 for The Montessori School of Westminster, Maryland.

                   We have been at the forefront of federal and state constitutional law analysis of
                   tax-exempt financings benefiting educational institutions affiliated with
                   religious groups. With our municipal litigation group, we spearheaded several
                   important validation cases in Virginia regarding the separation of church and
                   state for tax-exempt bonds for religiously affiliated educational institutions.

                   In November 2000, as bond counsel we successfully argued a landmark
                   constitutional case at the Supreme Court of Virginia validating the use of tax-
                   exempt bond financing for Regent University, a Christian graduate university in
                   Virginia. Virginia's highest court held that, notwithstanding Regent's religious
                   perspective, it was eligible to benefit from tax-exempt bonds to be issued
                   through the Virginia College Building Authority.

                   Since 1995, we have participated in more than 100 issues for universities,
                   colleges and private secondary schools, totaling more than $700,000,000. We
                   have served as bond counsel, underwriter's counsel, lender's counsel or school
                   counsel on financings, including student housing financings for public and
                   private university systems such as:

                           Clemson University
                           The Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore Campus)

                   We have undertaken numerous public and private offerings, both tax-exempt
                   and taxable. Our experience includes resolving the particularly difficult tax

                   In Virginia, legislation authorizing the creation of CDAs was first enacted in
                   1993 and is now codified in the Virginia Water and Waste Authorities Act. It
                   provides that a landowner or group of landowners in a county, city or town
                   may petition the appropriate jurisdiction to adopt an ordinance or resolution
                   creating a CDA to provide certain infrastructure and improvements.

                   CDAs are granted the same powers as water and waste authorities with respect
                   to storm water control systems, water systems, sewer systems, refuse collection
                   and disposal systems. CDAs are also authorized to finance, establish, acquire,
                   construct, equip, operate and maintain other infrastructure. CDAs may request
                   the locality to levy and collect a limited ad valorem tax on taxable real property
                   within the CDA or a special assessment. The CDA may issue bonds for
                   improvements, payable from special taxes or assessments. The payments of
                   special taxes or assessments by the locality to the CDA are subject to annual
                   appropriation by the locality.

Qualifications &

                   McGuireWoods has also been a leader in innovative financing programs
                   undertaken pursuant to other types of special taxing districts. We have unique
                   experience in the formation of special taxing districts for the purpose of
                   financing major infrastructure projects.

                   We were the principal authors of the Local Transportation District Legislation.
                   In addition, we have participated in the formation of almost every special taxing
                   district formed under the Local Transportation District Law, including the
                   Route 28 Project ($141,000,000) in Fairfax and Loudoun Counties; the Route
                   234 Bypass Project ($100,000,000) in Prince William County; the Prince
                   William Parkway Project ($40,000,000) in Prince William County; and the
                   Route 5 Project ($10,000,000) in James City County.

                   We have also pioneered the legal structure used by the Northern Virginia
                   Transportation District Commission and the Potomac Rappahannock
                   Transportation District Commission in structuring revenue bond issues totaling
                   more than $116,000,000. We have dealt extensively with sports facility
                   financings, including financings through the City of Norfolk, the Richmond
                   Metropolitan Authority, and the Maryland Stadium Authority involving various
                   types of special revenue pledges.

                   In Maryland, we have served as bond counsel and underwriters' counsel in
                   connection with the issuance of special taxing district bonds by Baltimore City,
                   Prince George's County, Anne Arundel County, Montgomery County, and
                   county commissioners of Frederick County.

                   These transactions have included innovative financings which combine special
                   taxes and special assessments to more fairly allocate infrastructure costs among
                   developed and undeveloped properties in a district, as well as "double-barreled"
                   financings which primarily pledge tax increment revenues, with special taxes as
                   a secondary source of funds to pay debt service.

                   We have also assisted Baltimore City in the development of its special taxing
                   district and tax increment financing legislation, as well as the creation of criteria
                   for evaluating potential district financings. Our experience ranges from large
                   financings such as the $14,000,000 bond issue for the National Business Park in
                   Anne Arundel County, Maryland, to smaller transactions like a tax increment
                   district in Cecil County, Maryland and the Town of Perryville to finance road
                   improvements of less than $500,000 related to an important economic
                   development project.

Qualifications &

                   All municipalities (including Baltimore City) and certain counties in Maryland
                   are authorized to create special taxing districts to finance certain infrastructure
                   improvements related to development within the district. The proposed district
                   must be approved by a specified percentage of the property owners in the
                   proposed district, measured both by number and by assessed value.

                   Infrastructure improvements that may be financed include roads, sewers, water
                   systems, parking, libraries, schools, parks and recreation facilities, sidewalks and
                   storm drainage systems. Bonds issued to finance infrastructure improvements
                   are payable from special taxes levied on property within the special taxing
                   district and other assets and revenues pledged by the issuer.

                   In Illinois, we have extensive knowledge and experience in special service and
                   tax increment financings and economic development. We have counseled
                   clients regarding numerous projects, including the drafting of various
                   appropriate project and tax increment plans, development and tax increment
                   agreements, and financing options, both bonded and “pay as you go” status.
                   We are frequent speakers for entities at tax increment financing conferences
                   and economic development conferences including the Illinois Tax Increment
                   Association, the Illinois Municipal League, and the Council of Development
                   Finance Agencies.

                   We regularly represent Illinois municipalities and other clients with respect to
                   redevelopment projects in accordance with the Illinois Tax Increment
                   Allocation Redevelopment Act, and are frequently engaged to offer special
                   advice and opinions concerning the tax increment process. Recent engagements
                   included the negotiation of an intergovernmental agreement among a home
                   rule unit and two school districts concerning the expansion of a downtown tax
                   increment area in Oak Park, Illinois.

                      The firm develops site-specific safety and health plans that comply with all
                      federal, state and local codes, laws and regulations. Key components of these
                      site-specific plans include:

                      Worksite inspections
                      The Superintendent conducts daily project safety inspections along with job
                      hazard analysis worksheets. The Safety Director conducts bi-monthly
                      inspections. A company safety committee made up of project supervisors and
                      managers and company safety personnel discusses safety and health issues,
                      makes recommendations for policy changes and conducts a project audit during
                      the busiest phase of construction. A safety recognition program, which includes
                      subcontractors, is tailored to the project. The program includes monthly and
                      quarterly awards for safe workers, presented at a jobsite-wide meeting.

                      Safety and health meetings
                      Centex Construction employees hold weekly safety meetings. Larger subcontractors
                      have their own weekly meetings, and smaller subcontractors may either have their
                      own meetings or participate in the Centex Construction meetings. Site safety
                      meetings for field supervisors are held with the Safety Director, and safety is an
                      agenda item discussed at weekly subcontractor meetings. Accident records and
                      accident summaries are kept and reported quarterly.

                      Safety and health training program, including new-hire orientation
                      All Centex Construction project staff, including line supervisors, participate in
                      an OSHA 10-hour construction safety and health course. Subcontractor
                      management and supervisory personnel are asked to participate as well. New
                      hires participate in a safety orientation program, receiving a written “guide for
                      safety and health” and viewing a video, both of which include basic training on
                      portable fire extinguisher and fire prevention, the OSHA required training
                      topics and a general set of safe work practices.

Qualifications &

                   Inspection and accident investigation process
                   The Centex Construction Superintendent notifies the Safety Director
                   immediately for all emergencies or injuries. The Superintendent also and
                   ensures the appropriate medical care is provided in accordance with the Centex
                   Construction Injury Procedures and that Post Accident/Incident
                   Drug/Alcohol Testing is also conducted. The appropriate supervisor conducts
                   a “Supervisor’s Accident Investigation” and Report as applicable with the help
                   of the Centex Construction Safety Director as necessary to identify and
                   document the cause of all accidents/incidents and to determine what measures
                   can be taken to prevent similar occurrences.

                   Subcontractor compliance with site-specific plan
                   Centex Construction’s subcontractors implement a written Safety Program that
                   meets or exceeds the provision contained in the Centex Construction Project
                   Safety Program and applicable sections of the firm’s Loss Prevention Manual in
                   addition to complying with all federal, state and local codes, laws, regulations
                   and contracts.

                   Job hazard analysis process
                   The Job Hazard Analysis document, created by the Superintendent in
                   conjunction with the supervisor of the trade performing the work, identifies the
                   hazards associated with the work to be executed, precautionary measures to
                   take to prevent any losses and indicators that might provide foresight of
                   imminent danger or cause for concern. Once developed, this document is
                   reviewed with the crew performing the work prior to the first day of activity. In
                   the case of prolonged activities, it is periodically reviewed to ensure continued
                   compliance with the approved procedures.

                   Alcohol-free and drug-free workplace requirements
                   Centex Construction has a clear, written policy on drug and alcohol abuse,
                   including pre-employment, post-accident, reasonable suspicion and random
                   testing. Centex Construction employees and subcontractors are required to
                   comply with this
