Urban Property Management Co. – Bill Kasper

You’re living and working in Boston, and your building’s hot water system has malfunctioned or failed while you were at the office. But you don’t know this, and after your long day and the trip home on the T, you arrive ready for a hot shower. Thankfully, you’ll have one because while you were working, […]

Peter Dourlein – University of Arizona

While there’s no substitute for a real-life casualty to test the capabilities and temperaments of first responders and medical personnel, the University of Arizona in Tucson can offer the next best scenario. It may not be for the squeamish. You’ll find it on the seventh floor of the Health Sciences Innovation Building. Opened last year, […]

Ken Pearce – UNC Greensboro

As Ken Pearce tackles a massive capital project at UNC Greensboro, there’s no shortage of logistical issues to account for. The frontline workers must be updated on whatever direction the evolving health and safety rules might take. Zoom meetings have replaced face-to-face, and a complex inspections process must also be done remotely while some sensitive […]

Traci Ferdolage – San José State University

So went some of the lyrics of that iconic song: “They’ve got a lot of space, there’ll be a place where I […]

He envisioned a new, sprawling and state-of-the-art campus centerpiece as a transparent and transformative addition. Munson appointed […]

Jim Giuliano – Construction Solutions Group

Keith Metzger – Subaru of America

With most Subaru of America personnel working remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic, the headquarters were less hustle and bustle when Keith Metzger spoke with Blueprint in May. Senior executives and people deemed essential to the operation, however, still come by daily to the gleaming 250,000-square-foot facility in Camden, New Jersey, as does Metzger, director of […]

Rence Meredith – Grand Valley State University

For many colleges and universities, summer is when the hustle and bustle of student life give way to an almost eerie calm, where the loudest sound may be the wind in the trees. That is, until you take a walk across the Grand Valley State University campus in Allendale, Michigan. There you’ll see the dozens […]
