Konrad Eriksen – Dynamic Isolation Systems

On Feb. 22, 2011, a 6.7-magnitude earthquake struck Christchurch, in the Canterbury Region of New Zealand’s South Island. The resulting peak ground acceleration (PGA)—the highest ever recorded—decimated the downtown business district and, according to eyewitnesses, tossed people into the air, thrown by the thrust of the earth’s vertical lift. Liquefaction of subterranean material—one of the […]

Chris Powers – Donnelly Construction

It’s simple, really: Donnelly Industries stands apart from its competitors in the world of general contracting because the company can self-perform any type of carpentry and can supplement with subcontractors when necessary. President Chris Powers explains: If a drywall contractor is falling behind on a given project, Donnelly can send in its own team to […]

Ted Norman – United PF Partners, Planet Fitness

Up north, they might call it Yankee ingenuity. Down south, it might go by another term, but it’s still the same: thrifty use of whatever’s available to complete a task. Which was how one of Alabama’s newest Planet Fitness gyms was able to meet its scheduled opening by 2018’s end. Only that didn’t appear likely […]

Chuck Hall – Winston’s Chimney Service

On a long winter’s night, what could be better than cozying up to a warm hearth, a good book or binge-worthy Netflix show to help you wind down? Be it pine crackling in the fireplace or the soft flame of a gas log or heater insert, a good fire takes away the chill—and brings charm […]

So when it came time to build a replacement store, company Director of Facilities Brad Arceneaux […]

Dave Verna – A.T. Chadwick Company Inc.

When Dave Verna sends drawings of piping installations to a foreman who will be working on the roof of a dangerous high-rise building, that employee will know exactly where to put a strategic weld or the best place to install valves. How does that happen? It’s because that employee has seen it all before, Verna […]

Jack Martin – JBI Electrical Systems

In sports, as athletes approach retirement, they sometimes graciously help train the players who will replace them, giving them the benefit of their experience even as their physical skills have eroded. Jack Martin, who founded JBI Electrical Systems in Fort Worth, Texas, 30 years ago, is taking the same approach, even if with skills still […]

Tom Pantazis – Impec Group

Given how online shopping has revolutionized the retail industry, a construction professional would be well advised to think creatively after years of building or renovating storefronts and showrooms. Tom Pantazis realized this years ago, his Bay Area construction and Management Company Pantazis & Associates having handled builds and rebuilds in the United States and Canada […]

Chris Shifflett – Piedmont Concrete Contractors Inc.

Football went big time in 2019 at Liberty University as the Flames beat the Georgia Southern Eagles in the Cure Bowl on Dec. 23.
