Case Studies September 2020

Ken Pearce – UNC Greensboro

As Ken Pearce tackles a massive capital project at UNC Greensboro, there’s no shortage of logistical issues to account for. The frontline workers must be updated on whatever direction the evolving health and safety rules might take. Zoom meetings have replaced face-to-face, and a complex inspections process must also be done remotely while some sensitive […]

Peter Dourlein – University of Arizona

While there’s no substitute for a real-life casualty to test the capabilities and temperaments of first responders and medical personnel, the University of Arizona in Tucson can offer the next best scenario. It may not be for the squeamish. You’ll find it on the seventh floor of the Health Sciences Innovation Building. Opened last year, […]

Rene Martinelli – Bolay

Florida is known for many things: Walt Disney World, alligators, oranges. More than anything, though, it’s the crystal blue water and endless beaches that define the Sunshine State. That fresh, casual vibe isn’t just reserved for resorts on the state’s east and west coasts. For Rene Martinelli, that vibe is perfect for the interior of […]

Rob Chomiak – The Canadian Brewhouse

It’s a sense of optimism that’s not widely shared in the restaurant industry. Even before COVID-19 many chains were retrenching or revamping their business models. Since the pandemic, some brands have struggled to merely survive. A notable exception might be in western Canada, where The Canadian Brewhouse—a family-friendly sports bar and restaurant—continues to think big. […]

Ronnie Mewengkang – Solomon Page

It’s bound to lift, or at least mitigate, this pandemic that’s so disrupted the world as we know it. But even if the risks of COVID-19 are deemed manageable enough for employees to return to work, Ronnie Mewengkang’s very proactive sanitation measures won’t rest. In just a few months, he’s come too far as facilities […]

Shelton Anderson – Clark Atlanta University

In 1865, just five months after the end of the Civil War, one of the parent institutions of what is now Clark Atlanta University was founded by two former slaves, setting the foundation for a school that is the oldest Historically Black College or University (HBCU) in the South. The recently repaired bells inside the […]

Tim Andersen – C&S Companies

There are many metaphors related to seeing colors: Everything is golden when all goes well; red if you’re angered; green when financial success is well in hand. As C&S Companies grows across the U.S., Tim Andersen sees teal—an emerging business paradigm introduced in 2014 by author Frédéric Laloux, that defines success through better self-organization and self-management. For more than 50 years, Syracuse-based C&S has provided design-build services in upstate New York, taking projects from […]

Traci Ferdolage – San José State University

Seems too many folks have found their way to San José. The Silicon Valley city no longer matches the carefree, anti-Los Angeles that Dionne Warwick so wistfully sang about over a half-century ago. So went some of the lyrics of that iconic song: “They’ve got a lot of space, there’ll be a place where I […]

Tres Simi – Lifelong Learning

The interiors don’t vary much from place to place. The centers of the rooms are open, surrounded by enclosed instruction areas. Glass panels allow everyone to see the learning happening around them. “It’s a pretty simple recipe, but those can be the best, just like chocolate chip cookies,” says Tres Simi of the 100 or […]

Urban Property Management Co. – Bill Kasper

You’re living and working in Boston, and your building’s hot water system has malfunctioned or failed while you were at the office. But you don’t know this, and after your long day and the trip home on the T, you arrive ready for a hot shower. Thankfully, you’ll have one because while you were working, […]
