David Workman – RoofConnect

In August 2019, when Hurricane Dorian was making its erratic, lumbering path toward land, RoofConnect contractors across the eastern U.S. were standing by, their eyes on the radar and Doppler. The storm didn’t ultimately have a dramatic impact on the Americas—but that was only in this one instance, says David Workman. “From hurricanes in Florida, […]

David Miller – Miller Paneling Specialties

When the nation’s newest casino resort was being built just north of Boston in Everett, Massachusetts, the bosses called upon Miller Paneling Specialties to outfit the interior. For the Sterling, Virginia-based company that operates in every state could make Encore Boston Harbor endure as well as sparkle. Furthermore it had an operation in the South […]

Andrew Smith – McRight-Smith Construction

They call her “FIFI,” and she’s just two-of-a-kind: Manufactured in 1944, she is one of the last flightworthy Boeing B-29 Superfortresses in the world. The giant flying museum—99 feet long with a 141-foot wing-span—has appeared in air shows all over North America, representing similar aircraft that flew in World War II and the Korean War, […]

Mike Winkler – Kasselman Electric Co.

It’s called “pulling cable” in the electrician’s trade, and they’ve done a lot of it at Kasselman Electric Co. over the company’s 70-year history. Yet as Kasselman President and CEO Becky Kasselman points out, the company has steadily evolved from wiring commercial, industrial and larger scale residential jobs in upstate New York to installing security […]

Tom Cahill – Donnelly Mechanical

They start working after everyone else has gone home for the night or called it a weekend, and the jobs are not pretty.

CSM Group

Once completed in the fall of 2020, the 275,000-square-foot Catalyst Development building—located in the heart of downtown Kalamazoo, Michigan—will stand as a towering testament to the city’s recent resurgence. Known as CD-12, the seven-story multi-use structure of concrete, brick and glass, will strike a deft balance between modernity and the region’s industrial past. The building’s […]

Joel Koffron – TRC Companies Inc.

The best advice Joel Koffron’s father Arthur gave him about the construction field was to develop technical solutions that had “both a belt and suspenders” so your “pants” won’t fall down and expose your “weaknesses.” Koffron, now the construction manager at Lowell, Massachusetts-based TRC Companies Inc. never forgot the guidance passed down from father to […]

Mathes Brierre Architects

The National WWII Museum has effectively become the centerpiece of New Orleans—and it is one of the most extensive projects in the long history of Mathes Brierre Architects. It shows. Enter the sleek and dramatic glass-paneled US Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center, and you’re surrounded by warbirds of all sizes and functions. Across the plaza […]

Michael Dorsch – DXI Construction

A fixture in the mid-Atlantic building industry for over two decades, Michael Dorsch thought he understood the capabilities of DXI Construction long before coming aboard as director of business development in October 2018. Though in the time that’s passed since his hiring, Dorsch may wonder if he’d underestimated just how seriously his new employer takes […]

Joe Murray – ACT Construction

Let’s say you’re sitting in your corporate office in Illinois, but you want to check on one of your restaurants being built in Texas. You log in to your project manager software, and in a few clicks you have a live feed of the construction site: where workers are focused for the day; what materials […]
