Dake Wells Architecture

To a lot of folks in southeast Springfield, Missouri, it’s more than just another library. Known as the Schweitzer Brentwood Branch Library, it’s located in a residential neighborhood rather than on a busy urban street. For decades it has been where countless children have discovered and sustained the joy of reading, and where their parents […]

Dausin Electric

When throngs of Texans show up at the local high school football field on hot summer evenings, few think about who rigged up the bright “Friday night lights” that shine down on the players as they dart toward the end zones. If that particular stadium is situated in the rapidly expanding city of San Antonio, […]

Hunter Quinn Homes

Brackish waters, tidal creeks and marshy banks are staples to coastal Charleston, South Carolina. Without the famous waterways that flow along its banks, this historic city would not have risen and flourished to the charming destination it is today. The Ashley River is one of many waterways that have contributed to Charleston’s continuous growth, and […]

Industrial Plywood Inc.

It’s called bird’s-eye maple, and while it grows on trees, those trees are few and far between. For it’s not a distinct variety of the maple tree that can be grown from a sapling. It’s more of a natural rarity, where at some point, the wood reacted to outside stimuli—perhaps fungal or viral infection, genetic […]

Jerry’s Homes

“Never start a home that you can’t afford to finish,” John Grubb told his brother Jerry in 1957, when the latter returned from the Korean War and decided to found Jerry’s Homes, a one-man development and homebuilding company. John was likely talking financials when he extended the advice, but Jerry didn’t solely see the company […]

As happens, St. Louis Community College recently decided to replace its extensive system of 50-year-old heating and domestic hot water distribution systems connecting all of the campus’ buildings—with additional areas for electrical service issues included in the scope. The Missouri institution decided on a local engineering firm that handles both mechanical and electrical work. Those […]

Martin Architectural Group

The phoenix-from-the-ashes analogy is much overused, but it still comes to mind when one strolls through the Hunt Valley Towne Centre in northern Baltimore County. Residents of sufficient longevity will remember that this now vibrant and uplifting outdoor shopping and lifestyle area was once the site of the Hunt Valley Mall that, like so many […]

MRG Construction Management Inc.

Starting a new business, in any industry, requires striking a balance between the size of the company and the volume of work it handles. Increasing the staff too quickly, without sales to support it, can sap profits, while taking on too much work can overwhelm the staff. Matt Genzale, the founder and owner of MRG […]

O,R&L Construction

The Northeast power grid has been reliable as of late, but prudent clients don’t take anything for granted. Come heat wave, blizzard or flood, the coastal city of Bridgeport, Connecticut, isn’t likely to have to worry about outages, as the midsummer saw its municipal microgrid nearing completion. With the Branford, Connecticut, company of O,R&L Construction […]

Paul Felder – The Architectural Studio

The prospect of designing a building comes with infinite possibilities, and while this is what makes Paul Felder’s job fun, he believes it can also be a trap. “As an architect, you must know when to stop designing,” he says. “I’m not looking to push people out of their comfort zone or attempting to see […]
