Case Studies Building for the Future

Stephen Luyendyk – Grant MacEwan University

MacEwan University may be in Western Canada, but the people who comprise the facilities department speak at least one word in Japanese: muda. That, explains Stephen Luyendyk, translates as waste or uselessness, terms that were anathema to him and his crew even before 2019, when an outside speaker put a catchy name to the many […]

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.

Seth Katz – Sentinel Real Estate

Seth Katz can’t wait for the day when COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.
