Case Studies November 2019

Andrew Smith – McRight-Smith Construction

They call her “FIFI,” and she’s just two-of-a-kind: Manufactured in 1944, she is one of the last flightworthy Boeing B-29 Superfortresses in the world. The giant flying museum—99 feet long with a 141-foot wing-span—has appeared in air shows all over North America, representing similar aircraft that flew in World War II and the Korean War, […]

Brent Rutherford – Texas Health – Frisco

When it opens in December, standing eight stories above the grassy plains in Frisco, the new Texas Health Resources hospital will offer many tangible benefits to the community. There will be 73 new beds for patient care, with the potential for up to 230 beds. There will also be emergency medical services, a neonatal intensive care […]

Britain Jacobson – EVERFI

Even a digital schoolhouse needs a brick and mortar home. However, EVERFI, the Washington, D.C.-based provider of digital online educational content, does not need chalkboards, erasers or old school audiovisual equipment to help its customers learn; it just needed more space. Planning for the move from its old location to the new one began in […]

CSM Group

Once completed in the fall of 2020, the 275,000-square-foot Catalyst Development building—located in the heart of downtown Kalamazoo, Michigan—will stand as a towering testament to the city’s recent resurgence. Known as CD-12, the seven-story multi-use structure of concrete, brick and glass, will strike a deft balance between modernity and the region’s industrial past. The building’s […]

David Miller – Miller Paneling Specialties

When the nation’s newest casino resort was being built just north of Boston in Everett, Massachusetts, the bosses called upon Miller Paneling Specialties to outfit the interior. For the Sterling, Virginia-based company that operates in every state could make Encore Boston Harbor endure as well as sparkle. Furthermore it had an operation in the South […]

David Workman – RoofConnect

In August 2019, when Hurricane Dorian was making its erratic, lumbering path toward land, RoofConnect contractors across the eastern U.S. were standing by, their eyes on the radar and Doppler. The storm didn’t ultimately have a dramatic impact on the Americas—but that was only in this one instance, says David Workman. “From hurricanes in Florida, […]

Dean Sorenson – Kendal at Hanover

Dean Sorenson is not one of the 400 people living at Kendal at Hanover, a nonprofit mix of residences for independent and assisted living near the banks of the Connecticut River in New Hampshire. But as director of facilities, Sorenson has come to call the 65-acre campus home, embracing its Quaker values of love, respect […]

Garrett Bergen – New York Public Library

Storied and stoic, the New York Public Library is known for its books, its vast research repository and its lectures—and for being the stronghold for survivors of an icy apocalypse in the 2004 movie “The Day After Tomorrow,” during which survivors are forced to choose which books to burn to stay warm. But Garrett Bergen […]

Kent Marsh – University of Colorado – Colorado Springs

When two halves amount to more than the sum of their parts, the effects can be powerful—even transformative. Case in point: the symbiotic public-private partnership between the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS) and the city that shares its name. Separately, the two entities suffered from traffic congestion and deficits in construction funding. In the […]

Mike Winkler – Kasselman Electric Co.

It’s called “pulling cable” in the electrician’s trade, and they’ve done a lot of it at Kasselman Electric Co. over the company’s 70-year history. Yet as Kasselman President and CEO Becky Kasselman points out, the company has steadily evolved from wiring commercial, industrial and larger scale residential jobs in upstate New York to installing security […]
