Case Studies

Atkin Olshin Schade Architects

By any measure, the late Louis Kahn (1901-1974) was among America’s most prominent architects, but that doesn’t mean the eccentric Philadelphian was infallible in every project he undertook. The Richards Medical Research Laboratory he designed for the University of Pennsylvania in the late 1950s may have met every aesthetic test, even scoring National Historic Landmark […]

Aurora Electric Inc.

A native Midwesterner who spent the early part of her working life in Arizona, Veronica Rose has come to love New York City, where her company has become one of the most reliable electrical contractors in the five boroughs. That said, as one of the first two female master electricians in the city, she acknowledges […]

BCCI Construction Company

If BCCI Construction wants clients to know how the WELL Building Standard can improve a work environment, all the staff needs to do is give a tour of the headquarters. That’s because, a little more than a year ago, the company designed its new office in accordance with the standard. “We really did create a […]

Beatty Floors

When asked to describe the scope of projects at Beatty Floors, Vance McCarthy replies enthusiastically: “It’s a never-ending list, I’ll tell you.” Such is the familiar and unpretentious nature at Beatty—one of the traits that has established it as a mainstay in both the flooring industry and its home city of Vancouver. Recognized for its […]

Becky Foster – Buehler’s Fresh Foods

The supermarkets and grocery stores of today are nothing like the shops they used to be. Instead of the small stores of yesteryear, supermarkets have grown in the last few decades, to essentially become department stores full of food. They include produce sections equipped with hydration sprinklers, delis serving carved meats, bakeries boasting multiple ovens, […]

Bell Mechanical Services

Once the Great Recession receded, this part […]

Bennington College

After nearly 30 years of planning, and a mound of architectural concepts considered, rethought and reworked, Bennington College is preparing to renovate its historic flagship building, known as Commons. Located on the south side of the progressive Vermont liberal arts institution, the 45,000-square-foot, three-story red brick structure has been the center of campus life since […]

Bialosky Cleveland

When Bialosky Cleveland designed its new office, the 67-year-old multidisciplinary design firm had an opportunity to practice what it preaches, “building more with less.” Housed on one floor of a former automobile manufacturing facility in midtown Cleveland, the loft-like design studios embrace a minimalist, industrial aesthetic that is true to the building’s original character. By […]

BlackRock Construction

Adam Hergenrother respects the privacy of his clients and doesn’t boast about the prominent people who have bought some of the high-end houses that BlackRock Construction, the company he and his brother Tom co-founded in 2012, has built in beautiful, bucolic Vermont and upstate New York. Nevertheless, word gets around, and a couple of years […]
