Jim Sheeley – Pulaski Central School District

When Jim Sheeley was a student at Pulaski Central School District, he never thought about how the buildings were repaired and maintained. Now it’s all he thinks about. As the director of facilities at his alma mater, Sheeley knows the schools more intimately than some. After all, he spent 13 years walking their halls and […]

JoDee Johnson – Benihana

She didn’t know it then, but when JoDee Johnson was a little girl growing up in Michigan, borrowing Uncle Jim’s binoculars and using them to study houses across Portage Lake, she was on her way to becoming a design and construction manager for some of the biggest restaurant brands in the U.S. “It’s funny how […]

John Eloe – Coeur d’Alene Resort

John Eloe has always liked making people smile. When he was nineteen and deciding what he wanted to study in college, his mom encouraged him to pursue his love of cooking. He had never considered being a chef before, but soon realized he could bring people joy through good food. Eloe worked as a chef […]

Jon Papps – Prisma Health

Responding to COVID-19 has required some organizations to be more resourceful than others. That’s why the facilities staff of Prisma Health spent three days in January scrubbing, repairing and painting an abandoned retail store. When it became clear that there wasn’t enough room to administer vaccines at the hospital, they transformed the store across the […]

Joshua Roney – Sodexo

It was not a job requiring the nuclear physics Joshua Roney had learned in the U.S. Navy and the civilian nuclear energy industry. But while he wasn’t splitting atoms, he was certainly splitting duties, work shifts and even floors as he oversaw construction of a new behavioral health unit at a hospital in McKees Rocks, […]

Kris Garnhart – Academy District #20

Kris Garnhart knows good looks doesn’t always mean lasting value. When installing new windows at a school, for instance, he needs to weigh his options. Does he go with the large floor-to-ceiling panes that designers want? Or does he go with smaller ones in a large grid frame? The second option might not be as […]

Mat Bergman – Heritage Bank

He can’t say when it’ll be a full return to Heritage Bank’s new Southern Operations Center in Tacoma, Washington, but it should be a simple transition. Social distancing will be made easy at the 80,000-square-foot former medical facility that Heritage purchased in July 2019, Mat Bergman explains, though at the time nobody could have anticipated […]

Michael Hamel – Covenant Living of Cromwell

Michael Hamel remembers his first day on the job at Covenant Living of Cromwell in 2013, when talk of developing a full-fledged town center within the New England senior living community was on the horizon. Now, seeing people bustling around the new campus, which celebrated its grand opening in May, Hamel says is heartwarming. The […]

Michelle Swanitz – California Polytechnic State University

It would be a typical day on the job for Michelle Swanitz, one that had her responding to one situation after another before the sun set on the Central California coast. Director of facilities for the College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, Swanitz was handling […]

Pathway Vet Alliance

Roger Davila doesn’t perform veterinary services, but he helps put pet owners at ease while their animal is being treated. As the director of real estate and construction for Pathway Vet Alliance, he keeps both human and animal comfort in mind as he works. He knows people don’t want to bring their sick or injured […]
