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 […]

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 […]

Vassar College

The common denominator is everyone on campus—students, faculty, administrators, maintenance employees—has to eat, and they all agree it should be a pleasant experience. It hadn’t been that unpleasant at Vassar College; it just could have been better. The private liberal arts school in Poughkeepsie, New York, has long prided itself for forward thinking, but somehow […]

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 […]

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 […]

How does a family-owned company in a small Heartland city get to be a global heavyweight in the competitive industry of rubber and vinyl commercial flooring while maintaining quaint in-house values that might seem more likely with a mom-and-pop operation? It’s a question that Dee Dee Brickner, marketing manager for Roppe Corp., never tires of […]

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.

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 […]

“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 […]

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 […]
