Case Studies Building for the Future

Andy Poticha – Mosaic Construction and Cannabis Facility Construction

Lifelong design builder Andy Poticha has never won the lottery, but he got lucky several years ago when a former client got some of the first medical cannabis licenses in Illinois and asked him to design and build dispensaries for the business. “I had never seen a dispensary before, and now we’re getting half our […]

Rabih Zahnan – Sorensen Gross Company

In 1913, Henry Ford developed his assembly line for mass production, famed for its efficiency. In the 1930s, Toyota took it a step further, developing a manufacturing production method—often referred to as LEAN—which not only limited waste and overproduction, but made it possible to create more variety of cars. Since then, the LEAN process has […]

John Crompton – The Winsor School

When John Crompton led a lunch and learn session with students at The Winsor  School, he wasn’t sure if they’d be interested. He knew the science behind concrete would probably bore a group of students and expected to look into the audience and see yawns and glazed-over eyes. Instead, he saw a sea of raised […]

Lawrence Rubin – Florida State University

Ask anyone who attended a large state university what their favorite part of college was, and you’ll get a variety of answers. From getting an education that hopefully leads to a successful career and making lifelong friends to going to football and basketball games and parties, the college experience is vast. At Florida State University, […]

Mike Smith – Shooting Star Casino

Located in Mahnomen County, White Earth Reservation is a rare and beautiful place. One of the biggest cattle-raising areas in northwestern Minnesota, it’s also famous for its annual harvest of wild rice, and it’s the only county in the state that’s entirely within tribal lands. There are few economic hubs in the region, though, save […]

Tripp Vint – Virginia Credit Union

It will be a new, maybe unfamiliar, banking experience for many Virginia Credit Union patrons. When they walk into a lobby, they’ll be welcomed at a kiosk by a greeter who can handle all their transactions using a tablet. But that’s the modernized service VACU wants to provide in its latest and largest branch, currently […]

Damion Fennoy – Live! Casino & Hotel

Swing the doors open at Live! Casino and Hotel, and get ready for some serious sensory overload: multicolored lights flashing, music pumping from every direction, the animated whoops of casino-goers—all bathed in the glow of a 100-foot media wall live-streaming televised sporting events. The 200,000-square-foot casino space practically screams excitement—and that’s exactly the way that […]

Dan Mitchell – Navy Pier Inc.

They built it and people came. But more importantly to Dan Mitchell, when they reopened Chicago’s Navy Pier in March, people came back. Pre-COVID-19,  Navy Pier drew more than 9 million visitors annually—people coming to shops, restaurants and attractions Mitchell helped develop in a career that’s brought him back to the pier repeatedly over the […]

Molly McLoughlin – Boulder Valley School District

In 2014, Boulder Valley School District passed the largest school bond in Colorado history. According to Molly McLoughlin, the district’s director of facilities, the historic funding led to upgrades for each of BVSD’s 56 schools, impacting over 30,000 students and 11 different communities across 500 square miles. As part of the education facilities master plan, […]

Larry Golden – The Howard Hughes Corp.

It’s not too far from the famous Las Vegas Strip, though Summerlin can feel like a much different place. Here one can find some quietude as well as liveliness in a very walkable and progressive master planned community on the outskirts of Sin City and into unincorporated Clark County. How the Spring Mountains and Red […]
