Amy Hunn – Floyd’s 99 Barbershop

Amy Hunn was in college at the Art Institute of Colorado and she needed a job. She got one answering phones, scheduling appointments and sweeping hair at an original Floyd’s 99 Barbershop in Denver. It’s been more than 18 years since she’s picked up a broom as part of her daily work duties, but she’s […]

Bruce Boyer – Stonehill College

He’s doing all he can to sustain a sense of normality for academic and social life at Stonehill College in Massachusetts. Safety is Bruce Boyer’s priority as he tells Blueprint during an autumn interview when the small, Catholic liberal arts campus is quieter than usual. Residence hall occupancy is at 1,500, down from its usual […]

CSU Channel Islands – Wesley Cooper

A 17-year-old Wesley Cooper would never forget the haunting screams of a woman burning to death in a car fire—and he never imagined his efforts to save her life would lead to a multiple careers. Seeing her car aflame in a ditch as a passerby, the teenager rushed to her aid, attempting to break the […]

Jack Enos – T Ford Co. Inc.

Sawyer Mill, stretching along the Bellamy River in Dover, New Hampshire, is a solid place to call home. Inside, the brick, exposed beams and pock-marked posts are reminders of New England’s manufacturing past—and now 226 apartments and a fitness center offer comfortable modern living. The Bellamy River passes between the mill buildings. Once the power […]

Jason L. VanAernam – Monroe Group/Steele Properties

To paraphrase an old truism, a dollar of prevention is worth many times that in rehabilitation. It may seem mind-boggling how so many property owners fail to take notice. Such as in Kansas City, Kansas, where a 13-story residential building will finally commence with a long-overdue overhaul in early 2021 after being acquired by Steele […]

Jessica Abbott – University of Hartford

There’s no shortage of strange stories when dealing with an annually revolving menagerie of college students. One day, you’re managing normal facilities-related issues—a clogged toilet or a broken pipe. And then you get a call you never imagined getting, the voice on the other end at once panicked and amused. “There’s an octopus in a […]

Patrick Hochstein – University of California San Diego

To live is to learn, to learn is to live. What a desirable place to do both, the University of California San Diego, where environments are being reshaped for like-minded students, faculty and staff. It’s here where the undergraduate division is organized into seven residential colleges, each headed by its own provost and with its […]

Built in the Oklahoma soil and surrounded by 80 acres of usable land, the main building is a split-level design constructed to make the […]

Roger Silveira – East Side Union High School District

For much of 2020, in California and along the West Coast, the day and night skies took on a permanent orange hue, a vivid reflection of the raging fires down below. Plumes of stinging, acrid smoke swirled into the sky, then settled as an uncomfortable haze shrouding houses, roads and businesses. The forest fire-induced haze […]

Simon Holwill – SHAPE Properties Corp.

The Amazing Brentwood, scheduled to open in spring 2021 in Burnaby, British Columbia, is nothing like the city bordering Vancouver has ever seen. It pierces the skyline with three glass towers, two at 60 stories, one at 54, on 8 acres. Those towers, with 1,500 residential units, rise out of a 500,000-square-foot mall and podium on top of 1.2 million […]
