Case Studies September 2019

John Hartmann – Hartmann Electric Co. Inc.

His company noted for powering infrastructure at Chicago’s two international airports, John Hartmann recently turned down a request to send a crew well outside the Windy City. Thanks, but no thanks, the 33-year-old vice president of third-generation Hartmann Electric Co. Inc. politely told a would-be customer who sought expertise on a baggage handling project at […]

John M. Gustin – Adventist Health

It has the potential to cut costs and accelerate the timeline, but the design/build process is not necessarily the obvious choice in hospital construction. For many in this detail-oriented and highly regulated industry, the risk seems too high to entrust one contractor to directly manage the design team, without the usual checks and balances of […]

John Standinger – LaBella Associates

When John Standinger took time to chat with Blueprint from his office in Rochester, New York, he couldn’t chat for long. For it was early summer, meaning it was time to oversee the maintaining of bridges and parks. That can take some doing in and around this medium-sized city on the southern shore of Lake […]

Kal and Kam Takhar – Crowne Development Inc.

They continue to beat the odds that have consumed so many small and medium-sized companies in California’s very competitive homebuilding industry, since the last downturn. The way things are going for Crowne Development Inc., brothers Kal and Kam Takhar could be well on their way to having yet another success story from which to leverage […]

Leighton Mitchell – NYU Tisch School of The Arts

What long had served as the administrative headquarters for North America’s largest public transit operation would not be ideal for the teaching and practices of an arts institution. At least not without a major repurposing. Which is what the big boxlike 13-story structure on Brooklyn’s Jay Street has been undergoing since 2012—the last few years […]

Mike McCracken – Hospitality Restaurant Group

Upstate New York likes to “live mas,” and the Hospitality Restaurant Group is meeting the craving for Mexican-style food as it adds Taco Bell restaurants from Albany to Buffalo. “We are right in the middle of our busy season; we have 12 projects in the hopper right now,” says Mike McCracken, Hospitality’s Director of Asset […]

Mike Spindler – Spindler Construction Corp.

When he says it’s the nicest building of its kind in Logan, Utah, Mike Spindler may not just be boasting. The three-story structure that is Jon M. Huntsman Hall would grace any academic campus. But it seems most appropriate as the complementary addition to the Eccles Business Building on the southern edge of Utah State […]

Stephanie K. Flood – iboss

In late 2016, three years after joining a Boston-based firm as a senior project manager and consultant, Stephanie Flood was given her most challenging assignment to date: to coordinate the relocation of iboss, a dynamic and fast-growing cloud security company—and one of the firm’s most important clients. Eight months later, just as a new global […]

Tim Fritcher – Brain Corp

Brain Corp’s original offices fell within the institutional cliché: plain walls and floors, rows of cubicles, basic and limited lunch and break areas. No design flourishes, no plants, no inspiring artwork—a place to come to work, and that’s it. In other words, “a very sterile, non-creative environment,” says Brain Corp Facilities Director Tim Fritcher. Now, […]

Wes Pooler – Southern Maine Health Care

Like many states, Maine has seen a spike in demand for behavioral health resources over the past decade. The problem is especially pronounced in rural and low-income areas, where extenuating factors—such as the state’s growing opioid crisis—are pushing these services to the brink. It’s an issue Wes Pooler knows all too well. During his tenure […]

We are grateful for the opportunity to highlight the development and growth of our now well-established work-hard, play-harder culture.
— Cole Settem, Communications Coordinator, Brain Corp
