Case Studies

Ackerman Plumbing Inc.

Carly Bonora is proud to say that “plumbing is in my blood.” It makes sense for Bonora, who grew up around plumbers, and is the fourth generation of her family to run 72-year-old Ackerman Plumbing Inc. Bonora worked her way up to vice president and co-owner from humble beginnings in the family enterprise, mowing lawns […]

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 […]

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, […]

B.L. Anderson

It’s gratifying when the company one’s been affiliated with for over four decades can, in a matter of speaking, go with the flow when it comes to efficient treatment of water and wastewater. So says Mark Gasvoda, the long-time chairman and former owner of B.L. Anderson, an industrial manufacturer’s representative of all things water and […]

BAD DEVL

In-demand finished lots for homebuilders are on the drawing boards, a busy Kelsey Stone tells Blueprint in late 2018. Lots that will be ready for construction, and have water, sewer and road access. Homebuilders, Stone explains, don’t always develop their own land. Here, in and around the Texas Hill Country, many have shifted to a […]

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 […]

Brad Mignone – Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group

Miami will be on Brad Mignone’s travel itinerary. As will Pittsburgh and Santa Clara, California. Quite possibly some other locales that might also keep him away from his Las Vegas home for a couple of days a week. For when you’re senior director of development and construction at one of America’s fastest growing high-end restaurant […]

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 […]
