Est. reading time: 4 mins

When two chillers broke at Sturdy Memorial Hospital last winter, Dann Boyer knew that repairing them would be a waste of money. Given their age, he knew they’d need to be replaced within three years anyway. So, he recommended to hospital leaders that the 500-ton chillers be replaced with two 750-ton chillers. “It was a […]

He can’t disclose much about his employer’s projects, many of which involve the U.S. Department of Defense and its contractors. Suffice to say, Corporate Office Properties Trust and its director of government construction, David Norfolk, are expected to meet high standards—and keep details under wraps. Headquartered in Columbia, Maryland, COPT is a NYSE-traded real estate […]

Est. reading time: 4 mins

The Las Vegas Strip has more than two dozen multi-billion-dollar properties on a four-mile stretch. These behemoths, which have thousands of rooms, are huge compared to smaller casinos on tribal lands or in rural places. They also have over-the-top amenities that are hard to match. But, according to David Johns, it’s not impossible. “We’re trying […]

Est. reading time: 3 mins

There are obvious reasons why Chicago-based law firm Chapman and Cutler would move from its more-than-a-century-old office to a new location. But according to Doug Domenick, the firm’s chief facilities management and workplace strategies officer, the move was also made with some not-so-obvious intentions. “The nature of work has changed,” he says. “Our new office […]

A few years ago, if a light went out or a sink was leaking at Clark County School District, it could take days, or even weeks, before someone could get there to fix it. Now, facilities issues like this are resolved within hours. That’s because, in 2019, the Nevada district started a pilot building engineer […]

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. […]
