Case Studies Commercial

Moore Erection

The steel is all but covered up now, except for a few stairway rails and partially exposed beams. But it’s there, sturdy as your body’s bones, buttressing the brick and wood that give San Antonio’s Cornerstone Christian School its distinctly neoclassical form. Opened this past fall, the grades 2-12 school looks both lost in time […]

JHDS Structural Steel Fabricators

Named after one of New Jersey’s foremost engineers, Rowan University in the southwest community of Glassboro might have felt it was under extra pressure a few years ago when paperwork issues threatened to delay construction of its new department of engineering. Seems another builder was challenging the winning bid from JHDS Structural Steel Fabricators, a […]

Dean-Chandler Roofing Ltd

Though last season was a disappointment, the Toronto Blue Jays still packed fans into the Rogers Centre, their average crowd of 39,554 just a few hundred behind the New York Yankees for the American League lead in attendance. Could be that some credit was due Dean-Chandler Roofing Ltd, the venerable company in Scarborough, Ontario, that’s […]

AQUILA Commercial

As company monikers go, “the eagle that carried Zeus’ thunderbolts” is pretty tough to top—particularly so when the title in question is cast in all uppercase letters. However, the firm’s management says the name AQUILA has less to do with Greek mythology, and more to do with eagles’ keen eyes. “We’ve always prided ourselves on […]

Victor Fernandes – Fernandes Masonry Inc.

The Fernandes brothers, Joe, David, Julio and Victor stood around one another at a family party in New Bedford, Connecticut, when it hit them—the idea that would change their lives.

Bill had spent the last five years selling heating, ventilating and cooling products for Trane, one of the largest […]

Gary Wood – Stryker Construction

It seemed a risky move back in late 2011 when Gary Wood, all of 30 years old and tired of toiling for others, went forth with his own construction company at a time when builders in the greater St. Louis area were having trouble finding work. “I had a lot of people tell me it […]

Norbert Mueller – Kroger Co.

The flood waters having long since receded, life was pretty much back to normal on the Texas Gulf Coast by mid-autumn. The Astros had even given the good folks of Houston a morale boost, finally winning it all, and among those cheering them on every night of that memorable World Series was Norbert Mueller. But […]

Judy Robinson – Continuum Architecture and Design

Judith Robinson doesn’t just see the Philadelphia cityscape, parts of which she has had a subtle hand in reshaping for the past dozen years. There’s more than simply buildings and parks at stake when it comes to municipal development and redevelopment, reminds the one-woman operation known as Continuum Architecture and Design. “Cities should be very […]

Ryan Hoke – The Exterior Company

Tens of thousands of companies apply to the very selective Inc. 5000 list. It’s hard enough to make it once, but making it twice is something fewer than one-third of all winners have accomplished. In Lancaster, Pennsylvania, however, the son of a contractor, who essentially grew up with a hammer and nails in his hands, […]
