Case Studies September 2021

Andy O’Dell – Protective Life

A football fan to the core, Andy O’Dell says pretty much all of 2020 and 2021 has been game time. Like a lot of facilities directors, he had to help migrate employees to remote work to the COVID-19. But he had an added difficultly: he had to halt a major renovation to the corporate headquarters […]

Chris Costa – Warby Parker

They’re among the few items you wear on your face, and that makes buying glasses a big decision. You want to be sure they look good and fit right, and that’s easier to do if the glasses shop is a pleasant place to be. As the director of construction for Warby Parker, Chris Costa ensures […]

Craig Cason and Dr. Donna Souder Hodge – CSU Pueblo

When Colorado State University Pueblo set a goal of being the state’s first net zero campus, it had more in mind than simply switching to LED lighting. Taking advantage of its sprawling campus, the university is building a 24-acre solar farm. The project, which is part of an energy performance contract, will save the university […]

Danny Murray – YMCA Calgary

After more than three decades, Danny Murray was ready to retire from working for Alberta’s largest city, but he wasn’t ready for retirement. Murray wanted something more, and he wanted to give back to the community in a different way than working for the city of Calgary. “I was scooped up pretty quickly and got […]

Dave Tompkins – Trinity

The company’s focus has turned to leasing the fourth and final phase of San Francisco’s largest multifamily residential project in nearly a century. Trinity Place, the $1 billion plus mixed-use multi-family development, has been under construction for the past 15 years. Projects like this take time—lots of it—especially in the City by the Bay, and […]

David Crowell – Duncaster Retirement Community

You’ve heard home is where the heart is, but as you grow older, you may want more than that. Duncaster Retirement Community, located in Bloomfield, Connecticut, offers everything from painting and golf to transportation services and physician visits, says David Crowell. When the COVID-19 pandemic spread across the nation, however, many of those service became […]

Ferris Batie – City of Chicago

Ferris Batie isn’t interested in putting Band-Aids over problems. When the cooling tower and chiller broke at Chicago City Hall in 2016, he opted to replace and upgrade it instead of fixing it. And while that was more expensive up front, it cut the system’s operating costs in half. The project, as well as other […]

Greg Fink – Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center

When Greg Fink returned to civilian life in 1991 after six years in the Navy, his challenge wasn’t finding a job—it was finding one as demanding as being a gas turbine mechanic. “The Navy is fantastic in making sure you know all the intricacies of the systems and equipment you’re maintaining,” Fink says. “When I […]

Keith Ledwith – Johnson & Johnson

So how does one build a career in construction management? “Relationships and partnerships have gotten me here,” replies Keith Ledwith, who’s fashioned an impressive livelihood in building and engineering for the past 20-plus years. Tap the know-how of those who’ve been in the business, he goes on to say. Leverage their experience and when you […]

Larry Golden – The Howard Hughes Corp.

It’s not too far from the famous Las Vegas Strip, though Summerlin can feel like a much different place. Here one can find some quietude as well as liveliness in a very walkable and progressive master planned community on the outskirts of Sin City and into unincorporated Clark County. How the Spring Mountains and Red […]
