Alix Loiseau – Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines Ltd.

The construction industry knows all about BIM, the high-tech Building Information Modeling that has revolutionized the ground-up design and construction process by providing a detailed, virtual, 3-dimentional model of a structure before any ground is broken. Well, now there’s SHIM, as in Ship Information Modeling—the process that Alix Loiseau has pursued since becoming director of […]

Allan Miller – Prometheus Real Estate Group

Rooftop saltwater pools affording 360-degree mountain views. State-of-the-art fitness centers and spas (for pets, too). Expansive game rooms. Outdoor theaters. And then there are the keyless entries, smart thermostats that “learn” heating preferences, movable kitchen islands, customizable closets, fireplaces, private scenic patios and balconies. Offering these features across dozens of properties, Prometheus Real Estate Group […]

Bob Cowan – Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

Air handling systems and drug production facilities that cycle a building’s air six to 60 times an hour with 100 percent outside air. A data center with a power usage effectiveness (PUE) ratio of 1.05. A computerized building automation system controlling 10,000 pieces of equipment and providing instant alerts if problems arise. These are examples […]

Brandon Lark – Great Southwestern Construction Inc.

Over the past 10 years, as the construction business worked to dig itself out of the Great Recession, EPC contracts (short for engineering, procurement and construction) became the go-to delivery method for a growing number of utilities and renewable energy developers. While EPC agreements have existed for decades, their core concepts—reducing risk and bringing all […]

Dan Cress – Premier Equipment Rentals Inc.

Blessed and cursed by nature, the high desert cities of Lancaster and Palmdale, California, would seem to an observer. Located in the very scenic Antelope Valley just 70 miles from downtown Los Angeles, those two cities can boast views of the San Gabriel Mountains to the south and the Tehachapi Mountains to the north. They […]

David Wickersham – Progressive Pipeline Management

It’s the kind of record-breaking achievement that only gets noticed by those concerned with pipeline infrastructure. Who else gives a second thought to what’s underfoot as long as the utilities are duly humming? But as long as such matters can be taken for granted, somebody must be doing something right, and in the summer of […]

Dennis Burns – CIMA+

When the project came up, nobody thought it would fly. It was every developer’s worst nightmare: a beleaguered riverfront property in NYC plagued with environmental problems and restrictions and a property owner facing bankruptcy. The shoreline and channel were trashed from Hurricane Sandy, and a landfill on the property would cost millions of dollars to […]

Ian Young – Gusto

Failure is not unexpected, and to Ian Young at San Francisco-based Gusto, that’s refreshing. With the freedom to experiment, Young is embracing the challenges in his new role as head of facilities and build-outs for Gusto, a people platform provider of cloud-based payroll, benefits and human resource management software for businesses. It’s a totally different […]

Jason Waters – Edwards Construction Services

A world unto itself in central Florida, The Villages has all the amenities of a bustling modern city and a small town community at the same time. There’s a Wolfgang Puck Restaurant, a hotel and spa, and shopping accessible by golf cart. There’s also a golf course and a variety of recreational facilities to support […]

Jeff Kagey – LegacyTexas

Jeff Kagey’s path through the past, present and future of banking has been unorthodox. He began as a teller more than 30 years ago, but found his niche not behind a counter, but by helping design them—and the rest of a bank, too. Now the vice president of corporate real estate and facilities for LegacyTexas, […]
