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 Enos – T Ford Co. Inc.

Sawyer Mill, stretching along the Bellamy River in Dover, New Hampshire, is a solid place to call home. Inside, the brick, exposed beams and pock-marked posts are reminders of New England’s manufacturing past—and now 226 apartments and a fitness center offer comfortable modern living. The Bellamy River passes between the mill buildings. Once the power […]

Jack Martin – JBI Electrical Systems

In sports, as athletes approach retirement, they sometimes graciously help train the players who will replace them, giving them the benefit of their experience even as their physical skills have eroded. Jack Martin, who founded JBI Electrical Systems in Fort Worth, Texas, 30 years ago, is taking the same approach, even if with skills still […]

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 […]

Jacob Zervakis – Leebcor Services LLC

Well, some things haven’t changed much since Jacob Zervakis began his career over a decade ago at Leebcor Services LLC in Williamsburg, Virginia. Most of the members of what was then a workforce of fewer than a dozen still report for duty each morning—only now they can be thought of as senior advisers to a […]

Jaime Palmer Walliker – RIU Hotels & Resorts

When Jaime Palmer Walliker joined Spanish-based RIU Hotels & Resorts in 2001 as a mechanical engineer working at the company’s Caribbean properties, he saw it as the logical next step in his career—a way to ready himself for the opportunities ahead. Little did he know, they’d all come under the same roof. Nearly 20 years later, Palmer has become an […]

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 […]

James Kaveney Jr. – Volt Power LLC

At least two explosions in the early years of James Kaveney’s oil industry career still directly impact him today. Making his way through school as part of the hourly workforce that operated and maintained power plants, it may not be much of a stretch to say he is lucky to be alive. “When I first […]

James Rosner – University of Denver

The parallels between developing facilities projects for the U.S. Air Force and a university system are not as disparate as one might think. Just ask James Rosner, associate vice chancellor at the University of Denver, who became steeped in facilities planning during active duty in the military. As an engineer who built facilities and infrastructure […]
