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 […]

James G. Staat Tuckpointing and Waterproofing

History and architecture have always been inextricably linked.

Joe Umosella – INTEX

Originally built in 1912 and sited just blocks from the leafy hallows of Harvard Yard, the four-story Winthrop House stands as a jewel of the school’s turn-of-the-century expansion. In the building’s endless brick and the white-trimmed windows, Harvard’s federal-style aesthetic echoes like an architectural clarion call. So when Joe Umosella learned his company had won […]
