Cindee Burns – Colony Hardware

In the summer of 2016, while many of her friends were enjoying week-long vacations on the beach, Cindee Burns spent her days walking the aisles of nearly a dozen Colony Hardware stores—and loving every second of it. Who needs sunscreen when you have a 60,000-square-foot roof over your head? Only, the massive home-improvement project she […]

Clark Lowe – DLC Management

Everyone in Frederick, Maryland, knew the local eyesore—the massive Kmart that sat empty for two years. The parking lot was vacant, save for a plastic bag wafting across like a tumbleweed on the prairie. Community expectations were low for the property’s redevelopment—especially during a pandemic. But Clark Lowe, DLC Management’s director of construction and a […]

Clauss Construction

When you’re a spectator, the process could take all of 7 seconds. There are several thunderous bangs; the structure buckles, caves, then it’s lost in a billowing poof of smoke and dust. And just like that, a building is demolished. It’s the mission of Clauss Construction to make it seem that simple, anyway. “The planning […]

Col. Ronald “David” McNeil – Hannah Solar Government Services

While government projects are coveted in the construction industry because of their big price tags, the work comes with extensive contracts, strict safety standards and quality assurance, not to mention mounds of background checks. Retired Col. Ronald “David” McNeil understood the importance of these high expectations, and figured his experience in the army more than […]

Comico Hadden

When it comes to pulling together construction projects, Comico Hadden got a formidable lesson from two strong-minded women in her life who taught her anything can be achieved with hard work and persistence. She learned that firsthand when her mother and grandmother bought an affordable fixer-upper in northern New Jersey and taught the 8-year-old how […]

Housing authorities do a lot of good in low-income communities by providing affordable apartment options for locals—but these same agencies often catch flak from tenants and the media for neglecting older, deteriorating properties. It’s not necessarily the housing authority’s fault; when tax dollars are limited, they simply can’t handle some of the larger, more complex […]

Computrols Inc.

In 2016, Computrols Inc. began renovating the 43,000-square-foot building that will serve as its new manufacturing facility and headquarters in Gretna, Louisiana. According to Drew Mire, the company’s vice president of operations, this new location can’t happen fast enough. He says Computrols has outgrown its old facility, and the new one is just one way […]

Container Homes USA

Derrick C.W. Childs has his hands full—literally—on a late May day, handling an array of tools as well as a cellphone during a lively interview from a construction site in Cleveland. But that’s business as usual for this high-spirited man whose work ethic and Christian faith run deep. And, as if heaven-sent, business is booming […]

Copcan Civil Ltd.

In 1985, the Gregson family set out to start their own logging and road building company in British Columbia and they decided to name it after their first job building roads in Copper Canyon, an area just south of its headquarters in Nanaimo, British Columbia. Their company, Copcan Civil Ltd., a hybrid of “copper” and “canyon,” […]

Cordeck Building Solutions

Three major casinos abound in the greater Tulsa, Oklahoma, area, means a high-stakes arms race among them, and the need for each to adapt in an ever-evolving gaming business.
