Case Studies Building for the Future

Kevin Hudson – University of North Alabama

For Alabama native Kevin Hudson, instilling value in every encounter with his team has become a hallmark of his career in construction—a way of giving southern hospitality a new meaning. After graduating from Auburn University in 2008, Hudson got his start working with a small contractor out of Nashville, Tennessee, before pursuing opportunities back in […]

Kris Garnhart – Academy District #20

Kris Garnhart knows good looks doesn’t always mean lasting value. When installing new windows at a school, for instance, he needs to weigh his options. Does he go with the large floor-to-ceiling panes that designers want? Or does he go with smaller ones in a large grid frame? The second option might not be as […]

L. Gerry Von Ville – Concord University

On any given Monday, L. Gerry Von Ville likes to take a walk. But not just any walk, and it doesn’t have to be Monday. Von Ville pokes around Concord University, the public university in Athens, West Virginia, where he serves as Director of Physical Plant. He might key his way into Marsh Hall, adorned with […]

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 […]

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, […]

Leela Woodfield – Junior Achievement of Georgia

It’s a typical morning in town. Offices, banks and stores bustle as people go to work and run errands. Whether it’s buying flooring, applying for a loan, or shipping a package, it’s all getting done inside a Junior Achievement Discovery Center—and the workers and shoppers are all middle schoolers. Designed to immersive them in the […]

Leighton Mitchell – NYU Tisch School of The Arts

What long had served as the administrative headquarters for North America’s largest public transit operation would not be ideal for the teaching and practices of an arts institution. At least not without a major repurposing. Which is what the big boxlike 13-story structure on Brooklyn’s Jay Street has been undergoing since 2012—the last few years […]

Lonnie Pilgrim – Fort McMurray Public Schools

There’s never a good time for a building to flood. The beginning of a global health pandemic is especially bad, though. In April 2020, this is the situation Lonnie Pilgrim faced when Fort McMurray Composite High School flooded with eight inches of water from a nearby river. As the school division’s director of buildings and […]

Marc Rienow – Gengras Motor Cars

They told him when he started he wouldn’t be asked to work at the auto dealerships. No, Marc Rienow was hired specifically to care for the Gengras family’s 40-acre estate in central Connecticut; he’d not be setting foot on Motor Cars lots or inside showrooms. That didn’t last long—within three months after his 1993 hiring, […]

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 […]
