Case Studies

Aaron Hammer – Gundersen St. Joseph’s Hospital & Clinics

Hillsboro, Wisconsin, a community with a population of 1,400, holds many memories for Aaron Hammer. He grew up in what’s sometimes called the Czech capital of the state, a small, rural area wedged snuggly between rivers and woodland in the beautiful hill country of southwestern Wisconsin. And now, Hammer’s working there, doing his best to […]

Achour Odicho – Verano Holdings

When Achour Odicho took a break from college to intern at an architecture firm, his plans didn’t go as he’d imagined. The internship bored him, and he left when he saw an ad seeking a freelance designer for a cannabis company. He spent the next two years working remotely on license applications. From there, Odicho […]

Andrea Grice – Community Dental Partners

When Andrea Grice joined Community Dental Partners in 2017, she was unsure about her new position—it was with a smaller company and in a different working environment altogether. But within a month she knew she’d made the right decision, relishing the freedom as the executive director of facilities to develop her department. Now business is […]

Andrew Hartnett – Brentwood School District

Like most students, Andrew Hartnett couldn’t wait to graduate high school.

Little did he know, he’d find his way back there 15 years later, this time by choice. “Clamoring to come back” when […]

Andy Dashner – Pacific Gas and Electric Co.

Here in California, wildfire season only seems to come earlier and last longer. What used to be June through October became April through November, but at no time does the threat really dissipate. The huge Golden State is always hot, dry and windy somewhere—Southern California beset by the Santa Ana Winds and Northern California, especially […]

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 […]

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 […]

Angelo Cox – Inland Empire Health Plan

Even in the midst of summer, September looms. Schoolchildren have it in the back of their minds they play in the sunshine. By August, stores are offering back-to-school specials, and the nights may carry a small chill in the air. September is looming, as well, for the 2,500 employees at Inland Empire Health Plan in […]

Ash Mahmoud – Cairo Development Ltd.

It’s a western Canadian province subject to booms and busts, Alberta teeming underfoot with fossil fuels whose demand can fluctuate.
