Case Studies

J.S. Archer Co. Inc.

It’s said that locks are only for honest people, but that might be more for the basic door. For the specialty wares furnished and installed by J.S. Archer Co. Inc. in Ashland, Virginia, keep more than burglars out. There are also the fires, explosions, floods, storms, vehicular crashes or whatever else that must be withstood. […]

Jack Wanner – Thunder Valley Casino Resort

The intent is to make the Thunder Valley Casino Resort as green as possible, and there are particular challenges for that in California’s Sacramento Valley, where, among other factors, an annual 70-plus days of temperatures in the 90s—including around a dozen in triple digits—necessitate round-the-clock air conditioning. That scorching period also happens to coincide with […]

Jalisia Davis – YMCA of Greater Charlotte

It’s quite the opportunity to be creative, which seems in keeping with her strengths. Jalisia Davis is just able to be more so since becoming director of facilities in August 2017 for one of the largest YMCA organizations in the country, that in the greater Charlotte area of North Carolina. For a woman who had […]

James G. Staat Tuckpointing and Waterproofing

History and architecture have always been inextricably linked. From ancient ruins to the most gravity-defying postmodern structures, our buildings tell stories, and like any world-changing book or glass-encased document, it’s our duty to preserve them. If the structure happens to be in or near St. Louis, Missouri, there’s a decent chance James G. Staat Tuckpointing […]

Jason Schlunt – Bellows Plumbing, Heating & Air

Jay Byce – ResiBuilt

So you think you’ve found your dream home. It looks great from the outside and, based on the slideshow online, it has everything you’re looking for. If you’re going with convention, the next step would be to schedule an appointment with a real estate agent. But this is a ResiBuilt house—so instead you download an […]

Jeffery A. Vinger – University of Arkansas

It’s the Cherokee term for “from the woods,” which makes Adohi the ideal name for new student housing scheduled to open late this summer at the University of Arkansas. For it’s the woods where the primary construction material originates, though it was processed in Austria by the Holzpak Corp. One of just a handful of […]

Jerry’s Homes

“Never start a home that you can’t afford to finish,” John Grubb told his brother Jerry in 1957, when the latter returned from the Korean War and decided to found Jerry’s Homes, a one-man development and homebuilding company. John was likely talking financials when he extended the advice, but Jerry didn’t solely see the company […]

JHDS Structural Steel Fabricators

Named after one of New Jersey’s foremost engineers, Rowan University in the southwest community of Glassboro might have felt it was under extra pressure a few years ago when paperwork issues threatened to delay construction of its new department of engineering. Seems another builder was challenging the winning bid from JHDS Structural Steel Fabricators, a […]

Jill Pearsall – Texas Children’s Hospital

To most, the saying “giving 110 percent” is considered a positive one. For the folks at Texas Children’s Hospital, however, the idiom had taken on a slightly different meaning in the fall of 2013: The facility was consistently over capacity, and the impacts—on patients and physicians alike—were starting to take a toll. That November, leaders […]
