Days on the road hauling a 53-foot trailer get long. Whether it’s passing under pines in New England, through the sky-wide expanse of the prairies, or down a mountain pass with a brake-busting descent, it can take a lot of drive to keep driving. On the roads crisscrossing the country, its common to see Omaha-orange […]

Losing and gaining jobs. Dealing with racial discrimination. Navigating business operations through a pandemic and raising a family. The only thing left for Sheila Mason-Henry to do is earn her Ph.D. as she’s already mastered managing change and breaking the mold.

Brad Grose – Alpha Construction

If you’ve recently stepped into a chain hotel and marveled at the contemporary look and feel—crisp architectural lines and muted colors, registration areas of faux brick and glass, comfy and spacious common areas with fireplaces and modernistic lighting, grotto-like pools and outdoor patios with firepits—chances are it was designed and built by Alpha Construction and its proven team […]

Time was when Sears, Roebuck and Co. anchored many a mall, but how shopping trends change.

But here may be the next stage of a […]

Stephen Vedral – Northern Arizona University

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Though the subject can’t be avoided, Stephen Vedral would rather discuss something other than COVID-19. For months it’s seemed an all-consuming concern for his Northern Arizona University facilities team, giving rise to what he calls the very contagious “COVID fatigue.” He also reminds that when he assumed his responsibilities at this Flagstaff campus in the […]

Jamie Budiac – Sure-Dry Basement Systems

Est. reading time: 4 mins

There’s something about the soil in Wisconsin that can be most unsettling—literally—to a house’s foundation. Most of the state is covered by the Ice Age’s glacial deposits and expansive clays much affected by the extreme seasons of the Upper Midwest.  During dry spells—and this region has known drought—the soil shrinks, which can cause what’s been built atop to settle unevenly and oftentimes crack. But with climate change, summer temperatures could be rising and that might mean increased rainfall and […]

As a director on New York-based Brookfield Properties’ construction team, Bruzzese helps guide interior reconstruction projects throughout the city, most notably at the company’s Manhattan headquarters. Change came to office landscapes well before the coronavirus pandemic. Cubicles and paneled conference rooms are […]
