“See a need and fill a need” may very well be Kathryn Bielefeld’s career mantra at Shoe Sensation Inc. It’s certainly a principle that has guided Bielefeld to the position she has today as the director of new store construction for the Jeffersonville, Indiana-based family retail shoe chain.

The headaches of flying need not be passed on to ground transportation, which has been getting easier, airport by airport. Last November, Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport—the nation’s third busiest—followed the recent model of others, consolidating car rental operations, parking and vehicular transit under one massive 2.5 million-square-foot offsite shell. But while O’Hare built this Multi […]

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Over a time-intensive four months, workers meticulously did their jobs. They cordoned off stalls using plastic barriers, vented dust and odors and repainted. All this while in adjoining areas, large animals including horses, alpacas, goats and sheep were undergoing surgery, MRIs, ultrasounds and other procedures. “Painting a facility for animals is tricky enough but painting […]

Back in the private sector after a productive five years with the Houston Housing Authority and one of that city’s independent school districts, Kedrick Wright figured he’d be around for a while as a project manager for the local affiliate of the civil engineering firm of Lockwood, Andrews & Newman. Career-wise, he’d have everything to […]

Kent Marsh – University of Colorado – Colorado Springs

Est. reading time: 4 mins

When two halves amount to more than the sum of their parts, the effects can be powerful—even transformative.

Separately, the two entities suffered from traffic congestion and deficits in construction funding. In the […]

Hurricane Harvey having slammed into Gulf Coast of Texas in late summer of 2017, the Federal Emergency Management Agency needed a strategic partner—and fast—to help spread word of relief efforts and to alert residents of further danger.

Keith Stewart – University of Illinois Springfield

Est. reading time: 4 mins

It might’ve been the chancellor’s house at one point, but don’t quote him on that. All Keith Stewart knows for sure is it was built sometime in the 1950s—not surprising, given the modified ranch’s dated look and spartan features—and that it became the University of Illinois Springfield’s on-campus childcare center purely by default. Over time, […]

Kevin Kernahan – Toll Brothers

Whether it is bringing toxic mines back from the brink, or breathing new life into abandoned, yet historically significant properties, Kevin Kernahan finds the process of transformation awe-inspiring.
