Case Studies October 2019

Joel Koffron – TRC Companies Inc.

The best advice Joel Koffron’s father Arthur gave him about the construction field was to develop technical solutions that had “both a belt and suspenders” so your “pants” won’t fall down and expose your “weaknesses.” Koffron, now the construction manager at Lowell, Massachusetts-based TRC Companies Inc. never forgot the guidance passed down from father to […]

Johnny Little – Tough Mudder Inc.

It’s tough to make mud in the desert, as Johnny Little discovered. Such was the case when Little, vice president of live events and global licensing for Tough Mudder Inc. came to Oman to debut the patented obstacle course race that takes place—as the name suggests—in the mud. Except mud is tough to make from […]

Ken Ziff – TTEC

Hurricane Harvey having slammed into Gulf Coast of Texas in late summer of 2017, the Federal Emergency Management Agency needed a strategic partner—and fast—to help spread word of relief efforts and to alert residents of further danger. Though based in Englewood, Colorado, and having made its mark by establishing contact centers for commercial clients worldwide, […]

Mark Dudgeon – Columbus State Community College

Mark Dudgeon might be an oftentimes overlooked but vital cog at Columbus State Community College, overseeing nearly 1.5 million square feet of facilities space that so many folks would take for granted—unless something’s on the blink or out of place. Thankfully, that’s rarely been the case since the 42-year-old Dudgeon became director of operations within […]

Mathes Brierre Architects

The National WWII Museum has effectively become the centerpiece of New Orleans—and it is one of the most extensive projects in the long history of Mathes Brierre Architects. It shows. Enter the sleek and dramatic glass-paneled US Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center, and you’re surrounded by warbirds of all sizes and functions. Across the plaza […]

Michael Dorsch – DXI Construction

A fixture in the mid-Atlantic building industry for over two decades, Michael Dorsch thought he understood the capabilities of DXI Construction long before coming aboard as director of business development in October 2018. Though in the time that’s passed since his hiring, Dorsch may wonder if he’d underestimated just how seriously his new employer takes […]

Paul Kausch — Kaplan Cos.

In its day, the Helme Snuff Mill was nothing to sneeze at. Built in 1883 in the ubiquitous brick factory complex style of the era, it produced enough smokeless, snortable tobacco and chaw to employ a town that became known as Helmetta, New Jersey. When the mill, about 50 miles south of New York City, […]

Randall F. Hoppe – National Management Resources Corp.

Its physical plant costly and in need of upgrade a few years ago, a private college in New Jersey called upon the National Management Resources Corp., a Georgia company that’s become the go-to source for getting campus facilities up to par. Some broken steam pipes would be removed with others repaired, and campus buildings would […]

Richard A. Yeager – University of Massachusetts-Amherst

There’s got to be some more “there-there.” Richard A. Yeager laments the phrase, but concedes its wisdom. Especially in his role of the past year as director for campus planning at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. While he’s quick to acknowledge the more than $1.5 billion of capital improvements and new buildings over the past 15 […]

Rick Fechter – School District of Menomonee Falls

You sound like a football coach, Rick Fechter is told during a midsummer interview with Blueprint. The approachable but demanding facilities director of the Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, school district takes it as a compliment. He concedes there’s no room for subpar performers on his NFL-sized team of around 45. Especially with the start of the […]
