Kyle Hardie – Indiana University Health

Municipal zoning questions about construction projects rarely make for exciting conversations, even as they determine what will be built and where. Kyle Hardie’s work as director of design and construction for Indiana University Health involves zoning, but it’s often the spatial zoning—what’s inside those facilities—that occupy him, particularly as he assists the system enter a […]

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 […]

Kelly Knable – Ball State University

McKinley Avenue once wove its way through Ball State University’s North End on a gentle curve approaching and crossing the bridge over Duck Pond. Now that curve has become a traffic circle fronting new residence and dining halls, buildings that are just part of the growth at Ball State, notes Kelly Knable, the university’s director […]

Ken Pearce – UNC Greensboro

With the projects in progress slated to add around 6,000 beds to the school’s housing stock over the next few years, DePersis was told, in no uncertain […]

Kendall Jones – Florida A&M University

Kendall Jones sure knows his way around Florida A&M University’s Tallahassee campus. As a student, he slept in the beds, sat at the desks, read the books in the library. Now 34 years later, as the school’s executive director of physical plant, Jones has also found his way around the odd corners, cubby holes and […]

Kent Marsh – University of Colorado – Colorado Springs

When two halves amount to more than the sum of their parts, the effects can be powerful—even transformative. Case in point: the symbiotic public-private partnership between the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS) and the city that shares its name. Separately, the two entities suffered from traffic congestion and deficits in construction funding. In the […]
