Case Studies Commercial

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. This was more than just another one of the bowl games filling the airwaves during the holidays, because it was also Liberty’s first full season in NCAA Division 1 football, a […]

Michael Marrazzo – Summit Facility Solutions

If you tuned in to the Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting event this past holiday season, you would’ve seen the 77-foot tall Norway spruce twinkle to life with 50,000 multi-colored LED lights and a Swarovski crystal star—a scintillating backdrop to kicking Rockettes and musical performers including John Legend. What you didn’t see was the team from […]

Marc Zimmer – Frener & Reifer

It was definitely not a case of “one if by land, two if by sea.” Instead, when it came time to deliver and install the 32-foot-high glass panels for the new Apple flagship store façade in Chicago, it was bring it by barge up the Chicago River. The panels were not just dropped off at […]

Matthew Gum – Kroeschell Inc. Rocky Mountain Division

“Cheap work isn’t good and good work isn’t cheap,” is a straight-up observation from Matthew Gum. That being said, Gum, the president of Kroeschell Rocky Mountain says while contracting services at the Colorado-based firm may not always be the cheapest, the relationship built with a satisfied customer is sufficient reward. That’s what means the most […]

Dale Reeves – Encore Mechanical

Though it’s leveled out somewhat in recent years, Texas’ population growth—now at around 1.3 percent—is still comfortably ahead of the rest of the nation’s. Given the demographics of the newcomers—young, upwardly mobile, attracted by well-paying jobs in tech and energy—one of the results of the boom has been a growing demand for massive multifamily developments. […]

Nick Coffelt – Aluma Systems

Picture yourself pouring a batch of jello into a series of differently-shaped molds. In what he admits is an overly simplistic explanation, this is how Nick Coffelt describes what he does for work to friends at cocktail parties or relatives around the Thanksgiving dinner table. With one important exception: Instead of colored sugar water, he […]

Jeff Smith & Steven Chandler – HDF | Harwood International

At first sight, the building doesn’t seem real. From certain angles it looks downright precarious, like a haphazard stack of magazines—if that stack were seven stories high and made of glass and steel. It shouldn’t work, but it does. And to eye-popping effect: Owing to its hypermodern design, each floor twisting above the next by […]
