Case Studies October 2020

Ty Wenglar – Clark Wilson Builder Inc.

Est. reading time: 4 mins

In previous generations, college kids moving into an apartment for the first time were happy just to be living away from home, while their parents were equally happy to have their house to themselves. Young adults didn’t care about having white-on-white appliances, shag carpet, a fitness center or a pool. They wanted cold beer and […]

Billy Graves – Citi Trends

Est. reading time: 4 mins

During recent bouts of looting and civil unrest in cities like Chicago and Minneapolis—in response to police killings of unarmed Black men and women—several Citi Trends stores were destroyed. But, like Billy Graves has always done in his nearly four-decade career with the company, he got the damaged retail spaces repaired and reopened in a […]

Nicholas Nilio – Healthfirst

Est. reading time: 5 mins

It certainly doesn’t happen often, an unstable or disgruntled person entering the workplace and setting off a scenario that must be quickly defused. But there’s enough risk of this occupational hazard for Nicholas Nilio to take preemptive measures on behalf of Healthfirst employees, New York’s largest nonprofit health insurer. Director of facilities and workplace security […]

Miles Coggins and Matt Reese – Chicken Salad Chick

Est. reading time: 5 mins

It’s not just customers who rave about Chicken Salad Chick as a healthier alternative to run-of-the-grill-and-fryer food. Landlords have also taken a liking to this Alabama-based hybrid of fast-casual and sit-down dining that commenced with franchising in 2012. That was just four years after its founding by Stacy Brown and her late husband, Kevin. Chicken […]

Michelle Higgins – AvidXchange

Est. reading time: 5 mins

There was a 60,000-square-foot renovation project in Charlotte, North Carolina, a 5,000-square-foot build-out in Alabama, and several smaller renovations and upgrades at other sites across the country. All would provide AvidXchange with enough space as it designed and built a second facility in Charlotte over the next two years—a 200,000-square-foot space that would accommodate five […]

Thomas Roche – Bristol Health

Est. reading time: 4 mins

It’s becoming more of a rarity, the independent community hospital such as what you’ll find in Bristol, Connecticut. A full-service, 154-bed facility, Bristol Hospital—which is part of Bristol Health—is noted for being the Nutmeg State’s top-ranked when it comes to protecting patients from infections. Only its aging Emergency Center was due for upgrade. That upgrade […]

Gelson Da Silva II – Molekule

Est. reading time: 5 mins

When Gelson Da Silva II returned from a 10-month globe-trotting sabbatical—a journey that took him to France, the Netherlands, Spain, Portugal, Morocco and ringing in the new year in Cuba—he brought back more than just a newfound appreciation for history, culture and food. He brought back a new mindset. Having a resume filled with fintech […]

Josh Meyer – Bremer Bank

Est. reading time: 4 mins

It may not be a traditional banking space, but Josh Meyer of Bremer Bank says the tried-and-true approach needs to give way to something better. The new Bremer location accomplishes just that, opening in the Holiday Center in Duluth, Minnesota, in July 2020. Instead of the typical customer service windows, enclosed offices with paneled doors […]

Gina Belleci – Sift

Est. reading time: 5 mins

A pandemic still in progress, it might seem like an inopportune time for a company to be moving into new offices, but Gina Belleci says otherwise. She’s been part of other office relocations that have essentially been done on the fly. “The standard office move? Over the weekend and little attention to detail,” the friendly […]

Rodney Watts ‒ Circle K

Est. reading time: 5 mins

After his employer prepared for the worst that Hurricane Laura might deliver, Rodney Watts may have been thanking his personal deities when the storm mostly spared Eastern Texas, necessitating just minor repairs to one Circle K on the Gulf Coast while a couple of others endured brief power outages. Overseeing facilities for most of the […]
