Case Studies Building for the Future

William Colby – Lincoln Property Company

He’s the kind who’d rather repair than replace. There’s always something worth keeping in an old building, William Colby is wont to say. Not only does it save his employer and property owners money, it may also be easier to maintain than some new gadget that can’t be readily installed in a legacy system. Nowadays, […]

Warren Byrd – KAR Global

Picture this: You’ve spent the last 10 years selling cars for one of the world’s largest automotive marketplaces. Now that you’ve learned the ropes, you’re ready to try your hand in the biz. Starting with your very own used car dealership. Where do you get your cars? What are your options? You might visit a […]

Sandy Bole – Jamison Properties

In the heart of Koreatown, located in Los Angeles along Wilshire Boulevard, Korean BBQ restaurants, nightlife and historic architecture have all played a role in the neighborhood’s continued growth. Jamison Properties and 26-year-old Director of Construction Sandy Bole are finding new ways to build up, literally—by increasing density in what’s already one of the densest […]

John Scalisi – Rockville Centre Union Free School District

He didn’t have to go to college or vocational school. Instead, John Scalisi has harnessed the many opportunities to grow on the job since he was 18. The early stint with Nassau County Parks and Recreation’s electronic department taught him many of the basics that decades later he’d apply in his present capacity as director […]

Patrick Hochstein – University of California San Diego

To live is to learn, to learn is to live. What a desirable place to do both, the University of California San Diego, where environments are being reshaped for like-minded students, faculty and staff. It’s here where the undergraduate division is organized into seven residential colleges, each headed by its own provost and with its […]

Simon Holwill – SHAPE Properties Corp.

The Amazing Brentwood, scheduled to open in spring 2021 in Burnaby, British Columbia, is nothing like the city bordering Vancouver has ever seen. It pierces the skyline with three glass towers, two at 60 stories, one at 54, on 8 acres. Those towers, with 1,500 residential units, rise out of a 500,000-square-foot mall and podium on top of 1.2 million […]

Robert Tolomeo – Broken Arrow Public Schools

From farm animals and drones to striking architecture and on-site input from students, the new STEM facility at Broken Arrow Public Schools in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, is designed to educate—for life. Built in the Oklahoma soil and surrounded by 80 acres of usable land, the main building is a split-level design constructed to make the […]

Shigeo Iwamiya – Suffolk University

With its skyline views, proximity to Boston’s downtown Freedom Trail and a spot on the National Register of Historic Places, it was a housing lottery ticket Suffolk University undergraduate students could only dream of: a room at the former luxury Ames Hotel. Approaching the fall semester of 2020, anticipation was building to welcome first-year students […]

Joseph Indivero – Spinoso Real Estate Group

Time was when Sears, Roebuck and Co. anchored many a mall, but how shopping trends change. Staggered into bankruptcy court by e-commerce and crushing debt, that erstwhile heavyweight retailer has been vacating hundreds of its stores, leaving behind cavernous spaces that mall operators need to fill. But here may be the next stage of a […]

Stephen Vedral – Northern Arizona University

Though the subject can’t be avoided, Stephen Vedral would rather discuss something other than COVID-19. For months it’s seemed an all-consuming concern for his Northern Arizona University facilities team, giving rise to what he calls the very contagious “COVID fatigue.” He also reminds that when he assumed his responsibilities at this Flagstaff campus in the […]
