Andy Poticha – Mosaic Construction and Cannabis Facility Construction

Lifelong design builder Andy Poticha has never won the lottery, but he got lucky several years ago when a former client got some of the first medical cannabis licenses in Illinois and asked him to design and build dispensaries for the business. “I had never seen a dispensary before, and now we’re getting half our […]

Barbara Richardson – Adventist HealthCare

Though a most personable sort, Barbara Richardson at least for now is content to be behind the scenes at Adventist HealthCare. The less outsiders take notice, the better job Richardson believes she is doing. Formerly the property administrator at this faith-based, nonprofit healthcare provider, Richardson was promoted last December to program director for non-acute facilities. […]

Chris Burke – Riverside Community Care

Chris Freund – Rockwood School District

While Chris Freund’s title at Rockwood School District may be director of facilities now, it’s not the one he started with. He was previously the district’s grounds services coordinator. Before that, grounds services supervisor, and before that, grounds services employee. Prior to holding any of those titles, though, he held one much more common in […]

Ken Cooper – Larimer County Colorado

Big things were afoot when Ken Cooper joined Larimer County, Colorado, government in 2016 as its director of facilities.

Yet there was always the chance […]

Consider Kevin Tegmeyer, president and CEO of RT Electric Inc. of Las Cruces, New Mexico. His father, Robert Tegmeyer, founded the business in his garage in 1976 with […]

Mark Anema – Hackensack Meridian Palisades Medical Center

It used to be that if you were getting physical therapy for your hip through Hackensack Meridian Palisades Medical Center, you had to fight cross-town traffic, travelling to one of its three locations in the New York-New Jersey metropolitan area. That logistical nightmare is now a thing of the past, says Director of Facilities Mark […]

Mark Lockard – The School District of Osceola County SDOC

Up until the day Mark Lockard closed out his career in school facilities and construction management, he was still learning. That’s because there’s a lot to know, he says. In a school design and construction career spanning more than 20 years, he’s seen changes and advancements in technology used to save—and even produce and recoup—energy […]
