Ray Miranda – Southern California Orthopedic Institute

Ray Miranda remembers hating his sales job so much he couldn’t stop clenching his jaw, then it became too sore to eat a Thanksgiving dinner. But with the encouragement of his mother, he picked up work at Southern California Orthopedic Institute in Van Nuys, California, and became its regional director of facilities operations. Three decades […]

Richard Stone – UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital

Versatility may be just what the doctors ordered. Literally. So says the man in charge of support services and construction administration at an upstate New York hospital that’s immersed in an ambitious multiphase redesign and expansion. Planning for upgrades to UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital commenced in 2015, with the hammers finally ringing three years later. […]

Santiago Quiroz – Campus Life & Style

Growing up in an economically depressed neighborhood in San Antonio, Texas, was not ideal, says Santiago Quiroz. Following high school, he saw no real opportunities and he almost got in trouble. That all changed when he joined the U.S. military—first the Navy and then the Army—serving just shy of 10 years. There, the variety and […]

Tai Davis – Fayetteville State University

Watching Tai Davis work with his facilities team, one would never know he’s a staunch introvert, mostly content to keep to himself. Davis credits his California upbringing with introducing him to people from all backgrounds and cultures—and for teaching him to accept them for who they are. But it was his mother, a social worker […]

Tim Singleton – Wellesley College

Walking around Wellesley College’s campus just outside of Boston, students have been treated to a pastoral landscape that has changed little since 1875. Stone and brick buildings are nestled between groves of woodland trees and winding paths hug the shoreline of Lake Waban. That made the redevelopment of Science Hill—including a new redesign of historic […]

Tom Stewart – Mister Car Wash

He’s got lots of “Mister-izing” to oversee. Such as in the Tri-Cities region of southeast Washington state, where Mister Car Wash recently enhanced its status as the nation’s largest chain of its kind. It bought seven car washes in the municipalities of Kennewick, Pasco and Richland, and all either have been upgraded or are undergoing […]

Willie De-Souza – Primoris

Determining where the renewable energy markets will go is like reading the tea leaves,  but under current market conditions the solar market is on the rise, says Willie De-Souza of Primoris Services Corp. One of the reasons for the uptick of activity at the Dallas-based holding company is the availability of tax credits for projects […]

Zeke Lyles, CFM – Crystal Springs Uplands School

On any given day, you might find Zeke Lyles answering a 1 a.m. emergency call about a collapsing roof in a faculty building with as much excitement as a kid on Christmas. “I get energized when emergency calls come in—at least once I know everyone is safe,” says Lyles, the director of facilities and safety […]
