BECA BIMBOS HEATHER DOUGLAS & AMY ROBIN CAUGHT DECEIVING AMERICAN STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING CANDIDATES

You won’t believe what we have uncovered! This unethical engineering firm called Beca Group in New Zealand is a really bad firm, in our humble opinion. Bad recruiters are no longer confined to America.  Thanks to the Beca Group, they exist in New Zealand.  They claim they are hiring but guess what, they are only hiring Kiwis. If you were to see their ads in the SEAOC newsletters in America, you would think they were hiring for from overseas. Beca is not.

We encountered a person that they interviewed. We couldn’t believe how unprofessional Beca really is.  The people who showed their unprofessionalism are Heather Sporle aka Heather Douglas and Amy Robin. One of their potential candidates was supposed to have an interview on Thanksgiving Day at 7pm his/her time. (S)he waited all night by the phone and never even received a call. The Beca bimbos known as Heather Sporle aka Heather Douglas and Amy Robin never kept the appointment or even emailed the person that they were running late. This person made a copy of the caller ID display on his/her Internet phone to prove that the brainless Beca bimbos Heather Sporle aka Heather Douglas and Amy Robin never made the call they claim to have made.

Guess what Heather Sporle aka Heather Douglas and Amy Robin did? They accused this person of being unprofessional via email because this person presented evidence in the form of the Caller ID display from their Internet phone to prove that Beca never called.  Apparently, hiring whores Heather Sporle aka Heather Douglas and Amy Robin got mad at this candidate because (s)he proved that they idiots did not know how to dial an international phone number.

The only reason we believe these Beca bimbos rescheduled the interviews is so that they could make the schedule of them fit the candidates they wanted to select. Forgetting to interview people on their schedules as they promised is an indication that the Beca Group is not a company people should be working for. The interview went OK.

Anyway, the brainless Beca bimbos Heather Sporle aka Heather Douglas and Amy Robin denied this person an opportunity to be interviewed further. Guess they must be looking for people who will tow the company line at Beca Group. Wonder what the big guy known as David Carter thinks about the recruiting process of his company now!  Based n what we just encountered, it is broken compliments of bleach blond bimbo Heather Douglas formerly Heather Sporle!

About Beca, a study stated, “Modest about its achievements, Beca is sound, reliable and trustworthy. A long-standing New Zealand company with a solid reputation for not only delivering high quality, but also well known for looking after its staff. It is an all round leader in its field both in New Zealand and internationally.”

We’d like to ask what these people performing the study were smoking! How does Beca Group have a solid reputation when the Beca bimbos Heather Sporle aka Heather Douglas and Amy Robin treat people poorly during the interview process?

At Beca Group, they didn’t invent discrimination against the long-term unemployed. They just perpetrate it!  Why not Beca? BECAuse they are idiots!

In 2014, Heather Douglas gave an interesting interview to a newspaper about why her firm Beca Group could not find engineers:

One company looking to navigate the skill shortage is consulting firm Beca, which is in the midst of a campaign to hire 30 new civil engineers.

Beca’s New Zealand recruitment manager, Heather Douglas, said finding all these new staff was not a process that happened overnight.

“It’s quite a staggered approach.

“As a business we’re always on the lookout for good talent whether there’s an active vacancy or not,” she said.

“Markets have tightened up, so you have to be quite savvy.”

Douglas said networking was important for finding staff, as simply advertising positions often was not enough.

“We keep in touch with New Zealanders overseas.

“We’ll have an event at New Zealand House in the UK and put on the Heineken.”

One factor helping firms like Beca find staff was the halting of the “brain drain” to Australia, which has led to annual net migration across the Tasman dropping to almost zero as Kiwis choose to stay home or return here.

“Usually we have to really compete against Australian salaries but that hasn’t been there so much,” Douglas said. “Previously, people in middle positions could get $20,000 more in Australia but that’s slowing down and we’re not seeing that quite so much.”

Heather Douglas, do you know what would help you and your firm Beca Group?  Not lying to potential employees about calling them up for opportunities for your firm!  Heather Douglas is a real idiot!  If she cannot figure out how to read resumes or even how to interview them, she should step aside and have engineers do this.  Many firms in the US do this now because of all the bad publicity they have received.  In one such case, a major ENR ranked engineering firm is being sued over this because they designed a sinking condo tower in San Francisco!

As for Amy Robin, she was forced out of the recruiting industry after the bad publicity that we generated for her back in 2012.  According to her LinkedIn page, she is on a vow of poverty.

Folks, if you want to do something, keep publicizing these bad firms and the people who work for them.

FORTRESS STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING CEO MARCUS ODEN CAUGHT RUNNING A BAIT-AND -SWITCH EMPLOYMENT SCAM

The Structural Stupidists have uncovered another structural engineering firm scamming job applicants with bogus job openings.  The individual who did this is Marcus Oden, a business development person with FE Jordan Associates, the Oakland based civil engineering firm.  When the Candidate went to the in-person interview, Marcus Oden stated the full time structural engineering position did not even exist.  Marcus Oden wanted the Candidate to only work for a week.

https://www.linkedin.com/in/marcuskoden

Ask yourself:  would you trust Marcus Oden with job openings he posts in the future?  We say you should not trust him.  To Marcus Oden, integrity is a toilet paper he uses without impunity.  And if Marcus Oden is that bad when it comes to job openings, would you trust him with life safety issues like structural stability?  Of course not!  The only way to stop this from happening is to not do business with him and his structural engineering firm Fortress Structural Engineering!

LYING LIAR LISA LOCKE AND KEY CAUGHT DECEIVING THEIR CANDIDATES

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERARecruiters are used when companies do not want to know employees are being replaced or when companies just do not have the time to interview people.  The goal of a recruiter may appear genuine, but almost 100% of the time, they make things worse by lying to the candidates that use them.  One such bad recruiter is Lisa Locke of the recruiting firm Locke and Key!

This Candidate applied for a Structural Engineering position offered by Rutherford + Chekene using Lisa Locke of Locke and Key.  Lisa Locke of Locke and Key appeared to be very enthusiastic for the Candidate.  Naturally, Lisa Locke of Locke and Key referred this Candidate to Rutherford + Chekene to be interviewed.

Rutherford + Chekene had their own ideas.  They decided to use this ad to pull a bait and switch on the Candidate. In this email, Marketing Director Priscilla Castro stated she wanted the Candidate’s references before the job interview took place.  Why would a marketing person do this?  Because she wanted to use the Candidate’s references to poach engineers from other firms, that’s why!  And people should not feel sorry for Priscilla Castro because her hubby is a member of the San Francisco Police Department, a police department known for unethical arrests.

Also in this email, Priscilla Castro told the Candidate the specific project (s)he would be working on.  Ask yourself:  why would a structural engineering firm state to a Candidate they only had a need for them on one specific project when Rutherford + Chekene ran a full time ad?  Rutherford + Chekene is a firm that intentionally deceives people, that’s why!  And Rutherford + Chekene has no issue being the most unethical structural engineering firm not only in the San Francisco Bay Area but in the entire U.S.

rncinterview-eamil

rcemaildeceive

When Lisa Locke of Locke and Key was told about the issue, guess what she did about it?  Absolutely nothing!  Lisa Locke of Locke and Key has no issue with deceiving job candidates that use her service.  In fact, she can claim all she wants that she works for the company Rutherford + Chekene as their recruiter.  The fact is that Lisa Locke of Locke and Key is a very despicable human being who posts jobs that are not real.  Lisa Locke of Locke and Key posted a job stating it was full time when it wasn’t because she makes people believe she will lie about any job just to get herself some cash.  Based on this encounter, applicants who use her recruiting firm need to think twice before doing so because for all they know, all the jobs Lisa Locke of Locke and Key advertises are phony!

The only way people can protect themselves from this person is to avoid doing business with her.  Friends don’t let friends use Lisa Locke of Locke and Key!

Are you a client of Lisa Locke of Locke and Key?  Here are the clients:

BCRA DESIGN’S DIRECTOR OF STAFF RESOURCES JENI ENSLIN IS THE LYING LIAR OF RECRUITING IN AEC FIRMS – WE HAVE PROOF

Recruiters are supposed to do everything they can to convince people to work for their firms.  Some will even play dirty by convincing candidates that their place is the best one to work for.  Let us tell you one such firm exists.  Its name:  BCRA Design.

For those people out there who have never heard of this firm, BCRA Design is a firm the designs public and private school buildings.  All the services are in one place, which makes it cheaper for owners overall.  But this does customers and owners no good when BCRA Design cannot find the talent to make all these projects happen.  One such example is the case in their search for a Director of Structural Engineering at BCRA Design compliments of Jeni Enslin, the Director of Staff Resources at BCRA Design.

In 2015, a Candidate applied to the Director of Structural Engineering position at BCRA Design.  The candidate got to meet the HR staff of BCRA Design.  She sounded pretty nice but then got to varying levels of nasty in the interview.  A few days later, Jeni Enslin, the Director of Staff Resources at BCRA Design, sent this nasty email to the Candidate:

enslinemail

In this email, Jeni Enslin, the Director of Staff Resources at BCRA Design, told the Candidate that his/her talents would be better suited for a larger firm.  How is this an example of valuing individuals?  It’s not!  We can only imagine how Jeni Enslin buys cars and houses:  based on price and not the service she would get.  How is this encouragement?  It’s not!  How does Jeni Enslin, the Director of Staff Resources at BCRA Design, know about talents in a larger firm?  J Jeni Enslin, the Director of Staff Resources at BCRA Design, is as useless as a screen door on a submarine with this response.

When this critique was posted to the Glassdoor website, Jeni Enslin, the Director of Staff Resources at BCRA Design, wrote this response:

bcra-linkedin

There are some major problems with Jeni Enslin’s response such as the fact Jeni Enslin is incapable of functioning in a realty mode.  See, folks, Jeni Enslin, the Director of Staff Resources at BCRA Design, and her firm BCRA Design decided to waste several candidate’s time on a position that should never been advertised in the first place because they were planning to promote from within in the first place.  Nothing says your firm is a disorganized mess than wasting a candidate’s time and money like BCRA Design does compliments of Jeni Enslin, the Director of Staff Resources at BCRA Design.  We at Structural Stupidists know this is true because BCRA Design announced on their website they promoted someone in their firm.

directorse-bcra

 

And that shows you that Jeni Enslin, the Director of Staff Resources at BCRA Design, and her firm BCRA Design does not play fair.  If they are great at wasting a candidate’s time, just imagine how they are in other aspects of their firm.  Wait, folks, we have a Yelp review that shows just that.  Take a look for yourselves.

bcrayelp1bcrayelp2

 

After reading this review, you have to wonder whether BCRA design has a natural talent for screwing over their paying customers you just can’t teach!  We say a big fat yes!

There is plenty of things about Jeni Enslin, the Director of Staff Resources at BCRA Design, that you may not even know.  Did you know Jeni Enslin’s Bible is missing a Commandment or two?  One such missing Commandment is the one stating “Thou shalt not bear false witness.”  And boy did Jeni succeed at violating the Commandments so well!

enslinchurch-pg

Now does Jeni Enslin, the Director of Staff Resources at BCRA Design, think this will not affect her?  We bet Jeni Enslin, the Director of Staff Resources at BCRA Design, thinks that.  What she doesn’t know is that she has the natural talent of screwing over her co-workers and family you just can’t teach.

Thanks to the stupidity in that email, we have decided to use it to Jeni Enslin’s disadvantage.  The Structural Stupidists have acquired info that her hubby works for P&G.  So guess what brands we will be urging people not to buy in the future?  P&G!  And we are showing people the email she sent this Candidate as proof.  We have sent this email to Costco corporate!  We have also emailed this to all of P&G’s customers and employees!

kirkenslinlinkedin

Also, we are using this email as a way to get those Washington state politicians to cut money from Washington State University because Jeni Enslin, the Director of Staff Resources at BCRA Design, proves their grads are no good!

Also, firms like BCRA Design need to look into outsourcing their HR Department.  Yes, it will save them plenty of money.  And they need to do that because nothing says your HR department is stupid like wasting candidate’s time compliments of Jeni Enslin.

BCRA Design is that firm you can refuse!  Paid for by people who fear religious hypo-Christians like Jeni Enslin!

CORE STATES GROUP CORPORATE RECRUITER ERICA AVILA CAUGHT GIVING BAD CANDIDATE EXPERIENCES

Erica Avila: the reason Core States Group is a bad structural engineering firm!

Recruiters can make or break your company.  Here is one company you may not have heard about, but you may have seen their work. Anyone who has even been a customer at Chase Bank, McDonalds, Taco Bell, or CVS may have heard of this firm.  This firm is the Core State Group.

A Candidate applied to their Structural Engineer post.  The Candidate met Core States Group’s recruiter Erica Avila for the first time.  She stated she had never recruited engineers who designed buildings. The Candidate was very patient.

A few days later, Erica Avila contacted the Candidate.  Instead of setting up the second interview like she promised the candidate, she decided to interrogate the Candidate!  She told the Candidate that she wanted a list of all projects the Candidate ever designed. There is one major problem with this:  the Candidate was also a reviewer for two years.  Erica Avila wanted the candidate to list every building (s)he designed.  This would be a massive task.  So why would Erica Avila of the Core States Group want this information?  We believe it is because she wants to use the candidate’s job experience to procure future work.

Erica Avila also claimed that self-employed people should never apply to work for Core States Group.  This idiot also claimed that because someone claimed they were freelance means they are looking only for part time work.  Eric Avila lives in a fantasy world where all structural engineers are fully employed.  We bet she would discriminate against retired people and part-time mothers if she could.  If Erica Avila cannot understand what she is hiring for, do you think she should work as a recruiter?  We bet she must think that being on government assistance would be so much easier than for this Candidate to actually make money.

When the Candidate stated that HR should be eliminated, Erica Avila went off the rails.  Apparently, job security for idiots is a number 1 thing with Erica Avila.

If Erica Avila had a brain in her head or a place to put one, she would know that the Candidate is licensed in California as a Structural Engineer.  This means that this Candidate could legally design any building including schools and hospitals.

We read the Glassdoor complaints and learned that Core States Group is a very bad company to work for.  After seeing how this Candidate was treated by their HR person Erica Avila, we can only imagine how well (or not well) run this firm is.

Indeed.com had some very unflattering comments on this firm!

Core States Group lacked leadership. Work load was unbalanced and there was no focus on manpower utilization. My last day came as a surprise and and someway I felt it was a good circumstance to find and seek other and better opportunities. Management would without consulting your deadlines, override any project manager scope and take away your manpower on your project. This was frustrating and is probably one of the reasons we had to be let go. Overhead costs were being affected by poor management of manpower. Sadly, I did like the CEO but I had no say so on how business should operate.

Conclusion:  Avoid Core States Group at all costs!  If you ever encounter Erica Avila, avoid her at all costs!

 

PATEL BURICA & ASSOCIATES PULLS BAIT-AND-SWITCHES ON THEIR CANDIDATES – COMPLIMENTS OF SHARAD PATEL

Last month, a promising structural engineering candidate applied for a position at Patel Burica & Associates of Irvine, CA.  The Candidate was being interviewed for a Team Leader/Project Manager position.  The Candidate received this email:

Candidate:

I have a potential opening I would like to discuss it with you.  Particularly, I am looking for a team leader / project manager specializing in high density wood framed buildings, 4-5 stories tall, wrapped around parking structures or podium type, with parking underneath.  Please send me more detailed information about your experience with this type of work.  Perhaps we can arrange for a Skype meeting soon.

Thanks,

Sharad T. Patel, Principal of the firm

The Candidate was traveling to Southern California for a bunch of job interviews, so (s)he thought it would be easier to arrange an in-person visit in Irvine, CA.  The Candidate felt it would be better to see the office environment up close.

Patel Burica & Associates is a structural engineering firm that specializes in multi-family and other low-rise buildings.  Founders Sharad Patel & Mike Burica were formerly of VCA Structural Engineers.

THE INTERVIEW

The Candidate was being interviewed about his/her design experience.  The Candidate was asked by Sharad Patel how (s)he would be managed.  The Candidate said it would be no issue working with Patel Burica & Associates Principals and Founders Sharad Patel and Mike Burica.  Also, why would a Candidate need supervision if (s)he already knows how to do the job?  We understand that this Candidate wanted to learn how these Principals do their job well and take no issue with it.

Later, in the interview, Sharad Patel performed a bait-and-switch on the Candidate.  Sharad asked the Candidate whether (s)he would work as an independent contractor.  The candidate asked why that was.  Sharad Patel stated there would be work in Northern California, but not enough to warrant hiring a full time engineer.

Patel Burica & Associates Principals and Founders Sharad Patel and Mike Burica discussed a pretty stupid engineering issue.  As many people know, apartment buildings are quite huge in plan area.  They are usually made of wood.  The California Building Code allows these apartment complexes to be huge but the area has to be chopped up through the use of fire walls.  This safety feature allows only one part of the building to be on fire so that the occupants of the complex can safely get out.  Sharad Patel asked the Candidate about running structural members through it such as a collector strap.  The Candidate rightly said this was not allowed. For all intents and purposes, each plan area needs to be analyzed separately for gravity and seismic forces.  Sharad went off on the Candidate and told the Candidate that this was allowed because he said so.  The Candidate rightly stated that the fire department did not allow anything to pass through the fire wall because it would act as a conductor and transfer heat and a fire risk to the neighboring units.  This means that Patel Burica & Associates is only in the market to rebuild apartment buildings every so often.  Can you say this new name:  Structural Stupidist Sharad?

The Candidate received this email a few days later:

Michael,

Thanks for coming in.  At this time, we will not be offering you a full time position.  However, we do have several projects in Northern California, and should the need arise for engineering support as in independent contractor, I will be sure to contact you.

Thanks,

Sharad

This was clearly a bait-and-switch.  Ask yourselves:  who would want to relocate in Irvine, CA, for a part-time opportunity?  For all the Candidate knows, the opportunity may not even exist.

For all we know, Patel Burica & Associates could be using this Candidate’s outstanding accomplishments to get work for the firm without that Candidate actually being employed there.  This is a scam in so many ways.  Here is how it works:  the firm saves this person’s resume.  Using Adobe Acrobat, the firm changes it back to a Word format so they can edit it for themselves.  The unsuspecting architect/client has no idea this is happening and they will have no way to check it because the Client firm will leave off identifying information such as a California Licensed Structural Engineer number, personal portfolio websites, and personal email addresses.  It’s truly the sign of an unethical company like this one may be.

This candidate experience demonstrates many things.  It proves that Patel Burica & Associates does not value their employees.  In fact, they see their employees as disposable.

Because when Patel Burica & Associates uses a bait-and-switch tactic, it means at least one of the following:

* Patel Burica & Associates is unethical.

* The principals of Patel Burica & Associates are unethical.

* Patel Burica & Associates’ environment is chaotic.

* Patel Burica & Associates is going through a reorganization.

* The corporate culture of Patel Burica & Associates is abusive.

* The job is different from what it was told it would be.

* Patel Burica & Associates will rescind other things it offers its employees, such as bonuses, benefits, or vacation time.

The Candidate was glad this proverbial card was played.  The Candidate has decided to publicize the bad experience.  It was last seen at the Irvine Spectrum Center.

So if you encounter a scam like this one, take note of this engineering firm called Patel Burica & Associates and run away from them immediately.

HAMMONTREE & ASSOCIATES:  HOME OF THE EXPLODING JOB OFFER

Hammontree & Associates uses exploding job offers and bait and switch.

JT O’Donnell recently discussed the new tactic that companies are using to get people to work for them:  the exploding job offer.  We at Structural Stupidists will discuss a firm that uses this tactic and introduce you to another bad engineering firm.  This particular one is unique because it is the first one with an exploding job offer.  Let us tell you what happened with a candidate.

The Applicant applied for a Project Manager at Hammontree & Associates back in 2012.  They have offices in the Akron, OH, and Pittsburgh, PA, areas.  At that time, they were a growing Structural Engineering firm.  Here is the ad they posted on their website:

PROJECT MANAGERS and SENIOR DESIGNERS, who have demonstrated that they can develop a solid client base & have excellent technical skills in the areas of land development, municipal engineering & planning services, water/wastewater, environmental engineering & structural engineering. Professional Registrations preferred.

The Applicant received his/her first phone call in November 2012 from Charles Hammontree himself.

The Applicant received this email from University of Dayton alumnus Charles Hammontree on November 1, 2012.

Excellent credentials Mr./Ms. X.

Needless to say we are very interested in the prospect of you joining our firm. Thank you for the response.

Charles Hammontree wrote this email:

Ok Mr./Ms. X. Would you appreciate a job with more opportunity to advance in an area with a much lower cost of living and the ability to assist with building your backlog of work? Other firms seem to hire and layoff as the big contracts come and go. We keep good staff between contracts and are slow to layoff especially talented engineers. Of course big salaries with little work is tough business model for any firm.

What the Applicant got as a response back from Charles Hammontree floored him/her.  The Applicant received this email on January 15, 2013:

HammontreeOfferLetter

 

This is obviously a bait and switch because it was not a full-time, long-term career opportunity that he stated earlier.  This was an exploding job offer plain and simple.

There were plenty of unanswered questions:

  • Where did the full-time position go? Why work for only a month?  Would anyone in their right mind move to Akron, OH, to work only a month?  So much for career opportunities that he promised!

Imagine if Hammontree & Associates were a car dealership and they ran an ad for a luxury car for $10K.  You go to the dealership and the advertised car was not there.  Would you trust that dealership again?  Absolutely not!

  • What happens when someone works more than 40 hours a week? Is the time banked for use later?  According to the company’s handbook, there is NO comp time.  In fact, the company expects salaried employees to work 5 hours above the 40 hour week for free.  So the Applicant would have been screwed out of my money.
  • What happened to the job he was offering? According to his job offer letter, it would happen pending an in-person interview with Charles Hammontree himself.  Did Charles forget that the Applicant interviewed him for three months for a permanent position with his firm?  This sounds like he wastes time.  If he were movie characters, he would be Ten Second Ted from 50 First Dates!  Perhaps the Men In Black showed up and had Charles Hammontree’s memory erased!

Guess what happened, folks?  The Applicant called the firm repeatedly and did not get a call back.  It is an exploding job offer because the Applicant had a very short time to respond to it.

The four reasons for exploding job offers are because the employer:

  • Tends to have a really hard time recruiting candidates

(b) Is desperate to fill the position immediately

(c) Knows you’ll never choose them if you have the chance to consider other offers

(d) Sees candidates as virtually identical, and is perfectly happy moving quickly to someone else

Hammontree & Associates fits all of these red flags to a tee.  Charles Hammontree may have attended a Catholic high school but he is in no way Catholic.  In our encounters, Charles Hammontree’s Bible is short a few commandments like “Thou shalt not bear false witness.”

As painful as this situation is, it’s actually a blessing in disguise, and the Applicant handled it correctly by walking away. Because when an employer uses a bait-and-switch tactic, it means at least one of the following:

* The company is unethical.

* The manager Charles Hammontree is unethical.

* The environment is chaotic.

* The company is going through a reorganization.

* The corporate culture is abusive.

* The job is different from what you were told it would be.

* The company will rescind other things it offered you, such as bonuses, benefits, or vacation time.

Hopefully, you never experience a bait and switch, but if you do, count your blessings! You have just dodged a career bullet.

The reason we believe Charles Hammontree only wanted to hire the Applicant for a month is because they had a problem they wanted to be solved immediately.  Charles Hammontree was using the Applicant to buy time for the candidate they really wanted.  If this is not an example of how candidates are used, we do not know what is!

Clients may have no idea he is doing this.  If their deadlines were not being met, they have the right to know why.  And Charles Hammontree’s recruiting process may be the key reason.  Are you a client of Hammontree & Associates?  You are if you are:

Steve Katz, Vice President, Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce

Anna Capaldi, Truste, Perry Township

Steve Paquette, President, Stark Development Board 

Bob Sanderson, Director, Stark County Regional Planning Commission

Bob Nau, AICP, Director, Stark County Regional Planning Commission 

James McGrath, Project Manager, Ohio Department of Transportation

Joe Race, Executive Director, Stark County Building Industry Associations

Jamie Wagner, Director of Franchise and Corporate Construction, Subway

Paul Pickett, PE City Engineer, City of Green

Bob Fronte, Director, Stark Parks

John Kilgore, P.E., Manager of Trail Projects, Cleveland Metro Parks Engineering and Design 

Al Brubaker, P.E., P.S., Summit County Engineer, Summit County

Robert Graham, P.E., Principal, ME/IBI Group 

Bill Yen & Ian Ainslie, Elliot & Associates Architects  

We do not expect Charles Hammontree to apologize to Applicants ever.  But we do want to warn others that exploding job offers are real at Hammontree & Associates.  Other firms may have them.  The bright side is that people will know who is doing them.akr_fl_hammontree_0511
