William Colby – Lincoln Property Company

Est. reading time: 4 mins

He’s the kind who’d rather repair than replace. There’s always something worth keeping in an old building, William Colby is wont to say. Not only does it save his employer and property owners money, it may also be easier to maintain than some new gadget that can’t be readily installed in a legacy system. Nowadays, […]

The equation may appear simple when designing a new parking garage. But while it’s still about how many spaces are needed and how traffic flows inside, 21st century variables are now part of the math. As Jose Morales of FlashParking notes, even the basic steps of getting a time-stamped ticket from a dispenser and then […]

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Hard to believe, but 13,000 years ago, Ohio’s landscape was dotted with mastodons, giant sloths and prehistoric lions moseying around what is now the shores of Lake Erie. Toledo residents can now glimpse into that rare window of the world through Toledo Zoo’s ProMedica Museum of Natural History, says Jennifer Van Horn, the Toledo Zoo’s […]

It was rewarding, he says, working with an M&A […]

Lavernne Hudson – Amica Senior Lifestyles

Est. reading time: 4 mins

It’s not a pleasant memory for Lavernne Hudson, that her late, sight-impaired grandfather needed care beyond what the extended family could provide. He spent his last years in a very institutional facility, and while the place wasn’t uncomfortable, something seemed to be missing. The man deserved better surroundings and more personal attention, she recalls, especially […]

John Bailey Ph.D. – The National School Plant Management Association

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Faulty heating and cooling systems making students shiver or swelter—not to mention dimly-lit classrooms—are not only uncomfortable, but also may result in lower scores on standardized tests, says Dr. John Bailey of the National School Plant Management Association. He should know. Bailey studied classroom environments as part of his doctoral dissertation and found mean scaled […]

Karl Ingoldsby – Somersworth School District, SAU 56

Est. reading time: 4 mins

When an organization is in the midst of a major renovation project, it usually doesn’t expect the new guy on staff to make a suggestion that impacts the bigger picture. But that’s exactly what Karl Ingoldsby did—and his idea is paying off in more ways than one. When he was hired as the facilities director […]

Jeff Rueschhoff – Americold

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Working at down to minus 20 degrees is a challenge for humans and machinery alike. For the former, it takes wearing the same kind of gear one might wear on an ice-cold snowmobile ride: gloves, long underwear, heavy duty outerwear and face masks covering every inch of fragile skin. For the latter, extreme cold isn’t […]

Steve Eiss – Banner Health

Est. reading time: 4 mins

As Steve Eiss puts it, he and the team at Banner Health in Phoenix, Arizona, don’t build hospitals; they open them—and at a rapid pace.

The company owns or leases 480 health care-related properties: medical […]
