For Nicole Hughes, even seemingly minor details, like a hook on a door, can make a major difference. “When most people plan a build-out or remodel, they may first consider larger elements, like installing cabinetry or replacing outdated carpeting with new flooring,” says Hughes, the director of construction and facilities with PCRK Group, the owner […]

Linda Besetzny – R.J. O’Brien

Est. reading time: 4 mins

During the 22 years that Linda Besetzny worked at the international law firm of Sonnenschein, Nath & Rosenthal, the most memorable event was not, in fact, her leading a two-and-a-half year, $10 million dollar renovation across the 76th and 81st floors of Chicago’s Willis Tower—which won her the firm’s Above and Beyond Award. It was, […]

Tai Davis – Fayetteville State University

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Before last year, when students at Fayetteville State University submitted a maintenance request, they didn’t know when it would be addressed. Sometimes, facilities workers would show up when students were sleeping, getting dressed or trying to concentrate on their work, creating an uncomfortable situation for both parties. Tai Davis heard these frustrations from students last […]

Jim Tully – ICON International

It could be that Zoom or Teams have made the company’s jet an expensive accessory by eliminating the need for so much travel. It could be that online shopping and banking have reduced the need for retail space, or that remote and hybrid work arrangements have lessened the need for office space. Whatever the reason, […]

Pete Muscio – Rochester Community Schools

Est. reading time: 4 mins

When Pete Muscio started at Rochester Community Schools in late 2015, he was surprised by how different schools looked. Not just floors and paint, but furniture and fixtures in each of the buildings varied greatly, with little consistency or standardization. Muscio, the director of capital projects and facilities, knew that making these features uniform would […]

Most people are tired of talking about the COVID-19 virus, especially more than two years after the first reported U.S. cases and coronavirus related lockdowns. But for Peter Scarpati, the pandemic is the impetus for a lot of the things he’s doing as the director of operations for the Wistar Institute in Philadelphia. As a […]

Bryan Wietrzykowski – ATI Physical Therapy

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Bryan Wietrzykowski grew up in Plainfield, Illinois, outside of Chicago. On long and hot summer days, he’d spend hours in a sandbox digging holes. During the dark, cold winters, he’d be inside working on the latest LEGO set, trying to assemble it faster than his previous build. When he was 14, Wietrzykowski started working in […]

Doug Myers – Acosta

Est. reading time: 5 mins

There might be some hyperbole when Doug Myers laughingly describes how the real estate director in any enterprise—of which he is one—can still be perceived as the proverbial redheaded stepchild. Given the difficulty of property transactions, he understands the basis for the stereotype. But he sees it getting less pronounced, at least for his employer. […]

Holton Wilkerson – Self-Help Credit Union

Est. reading time: 4 mins

When Holton Wilkerson was hired at Self-Help Credit Union in late 2019, the regional facilities teams operated independently. As the national director of credit union facilities, he was tasked with breaking down the silos that lead to inconsistencies in vendor management and branch appearance. The vision, he says, was to nationalize the team. The North […]

Garrett Solomon – Scripps College

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Gardens and vegetation are, ironically, not the best way to go green on college campuses. The water consumption alone can be drastic, especially in places like Los Angeles, California, which is in the third year of a historic drought. That’s why Garrett Solomon worked with a design team to plant eco-friendly greenery. In 2015, Scripps […]
