360 Rail Services

“Railroadin’ on the Great Divide, nuthin’ around me but the Rockies and sky. It’s there you’ll find me as the years go by, railroadin’ on the Great Divide.” So goes a poignant old song, composer unknown, but covered by the Carter Family and a host of other traditionalists adept at stringed instruments. Not too many […]

Accurate Lock and Hardware

Should visitors to the White House notice door knobs, they may think they date back to administrations of a distant past. They may come to the same conclusion about door hardware adorning the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, numerous state capitols and countless high-end residences. But all were highly engineered, manufactured or restored by a […]

Amanda Janzen – Schafer Richardson

If, just a little over three years ago, you had taken a walk to 300 Second Street SE in Minneapolis, Minnesota, you would have been struck by an eyesore not unlike many that pockmark former mill cities. A two-story building of smudged, light-colored brick, drooping on one side with widespread mold and rust, windows boarded […]

Bradley Jones – Harristown Development Corp.

There’s more than a smattering of early 1970s idealism that’s sustained in Pennsylvania’s capital city of Harrisburg, and it’s a mindset that can cut across all political, ethnic and demographic lines. After all, most any constituency would favor an already desirable downtown becoming an even more livable and exciting place. And that has been the […]

Buzz Oates

Usually, after a piece of property is sold the builder lets go of all responsibility concerning the project, unless of course that property was developed and built by a company such as Buzz Oates, which has a longer-term interest. Based in Sacramento, California, the vertically integrated development and asset management company specializes in building large […]

C.T. Wilson Construction

Few things can deteriorate like a big unmaintained building, and the folks of Greensboro, North Carolina, were constantly so reminded when they ventured just north of the downtown. For it was there where much of a sprawling, once-teeming mill complex had been crumbling since its looms ceased operating in 1982, there being little need in […]

Christopher @ Architects LLC

Seafront condominiums don’t often win plaudits for creativity. Functionality, for sure; after all, they tend to be big-box, even bland buildings packing in as many units as possible, each with pricy views of the ocean. Then again, few of those buildings were designed by the late Charles Moore. For it was Moore who designed a […]

Col. Ronald “David” McNeil – Hannah Solar Government Services

While government projects are coveted in the construction industry because of their big price tags, the work comes with extensive contracts, strict safety standards and quality assurance, not to mention mounds of background checks. Retired Col. Ronald “David” McNeil understood the importance of these high expectations, and figured his experience in the army more than […]

Community Preservation Partners

Housing authorities do a lot of good in low-income communities by providing affordable apartment options for locals—but these same agencies often catch flak from tenants and the media for neglecting older, deteriorating properties. It’s not necessarily the housing authority’s fault; when tax dollars are limited, they simply can’t handle some of the larger, more complex […]

Container Homes USA

Derrick C.W. Childs has his hands full—literally—on a late May day, handling an array of tools as well as a cellphone during a lively interview from a construction site in Cleveland. But that’s business as usual for this high-spirited man whose work ethic and Christian faith run deep. And, as if heaven-sent, business is booming […]
