After more than 25 years managing the finances for the Hualapai (hoo·aa·luh·pai) Tribe of northwestern Arizona, Wanda Easter was looking for a challenge. She wanted to take on new tasks, maybe even see some new places. But Rhode Island in January? That’s no knock on the Ocean State, but it is a world away from […]

Andrea Wolf

Est. reading time: 5 mins

A 2022 article in Bloomberg magazine emphasized how recent labor shortages have led to women smashing past the concrete ceiling in the construction industry. Meticulously charting her path through the similar and adjacent boy’s club of corporate real estate, Andrea Wolf spent the past three decades firmly ignoring ceilings. Instead, she developed her guiding philosophy […]

Steven Piepgrass – Green Impact Partners

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Caring for the environment has long been a passion for Steven Piepgrass, whose first job out of college involved cleaning up Distant Early Warning Line stations and oil and gas sites in the Arctic. During the 1950s, the U.S. military built approximately 30 bases from Alaska across northernmost Canada and into Greenland, with the goal […]

Yancey Modesto – Cal State LA

Est. reading time: 4 mins

When Cal State LA was built in the 1950s, it was designed to be a commuter campus. At the time—and for many decades to follow—students lived in nearby neighborhoods and could drive or take public transportation to their classes. But now, with monthly rents spiking across Los Angeles, many students can no longer afford to […]

Joe Bleehash – University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Driving onto the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg campus, one of the first things people see is the new life sciences building. The two-level building is topped by large high plume dilution fans, which are exhaust systems for chemical hoods in laboratories. Fans like this are typically hidden to make buildings more aesthetically pleasing, but […]

Est. reading time: 4 mins

David Miller and his team at Olean General Hospital were more than halfway through renovating a new psychiatric inpatient area when the COVID-19 pandemic forced them to pivot. Instead of completing the area for its intended purpose, they reverted it to a sub-acute rehab area. While that involved undoing work that had already been done, […]

Angela Meyer – Southeast Missouri State University

Est. reading time: 3 mins

Tunnels are the perfect fodder for a host of myths, urban legends or, in the case of Southeast Missouri State University, campus lore. So, in October 2022, with Halloween right around the corner, SeMo students tracked down the campus director of facilities management, Angela Meyer, to debunk the mystery. Meyer, who’s been on campus for […]

Paul C. White—CEO, Paul White Company

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Known for its verdant forests, rocky coastline and picturesque lighthouses (and lobster, of course), Maine has long been a popular destination for tourists—despite its relatively sparse population. But after a two-decade-long decline, the state has enjoyed a recent surge of inhabitants.   In a state that was already experiencing an acute housing shortage, the need […]

Julian Ortiz – Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Call it “A Tale of Two Theaters.” No, it’s not a Hollywood blockbuster with a cast of thousands and computer-generated graphics to stun and thrill moviegoers, or an arthouse indie flick about rival playwrights. Rather, it’s the story of how Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas and Julian Ortiz are making going to the movies a luxurious experience—while […]

Frank Settleman – Chesapeake Contracting Group

Est. reading time: 4 mins

The old brick warehouse served its purpose on Baltimore’s Inner Harbor for over a century, storing tobacco and other goods before falling into disrepair.
