Case Studies Commercial

Jim Tully – ICON International

It could be that Zoom or Teams have made the company’s jet an expensive accessory by eliminating the need for so much travel. It could be that online shopping and banking have reduced the need for retail space, or that remote and hybrid work arrangements have lessened the need for office space. Whatever the reason, […]

Tim Aimone – Hewlett Packard Enterprise

At Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s new headquarters, employees can have a work meeting, grab coffee at a cafe, work out and go to the pharmacy, all without leaving the building. After two years of employees working from home because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the new building opened on February 14 in Houston, Texas. It was designed […]

Kari Ihle – EVEREVE

Though located in bustling Minneapolis and performing well, by the early 2010s, EVEREVE’s flagship location needed to update its in-store experience. Opened in 2004, it no longer reflected the company enough to be considered a flagship by design, Kari Ihle explains. She adds that many of the other nearly 80 locations at that point better […]

Chris Mansky – International Workplace Group

It sounds like a battlefield promotion, but it’s one that Chris Mansky would have accepted under any conditions. While he’s still the Southeast regional construction director of International Workplace Group, the world’s largest flexible workspace business and parent company of Regus and Spaces, much has changed since he joined in August 2015. Corporate clients are […]

Beverly Bailey – Stronghold Engineering Inc.

When Scott Bailey’s truck was totaled, it was a blessing in disguise, says his wife, Beverly Bailey. Scott, a traveling electrician, was tired of being on the road. Beverly was on maternity leave and dreaded returning to her job as a loan officer. So, the pair used the money from the insurance settlement to launch […]

Justin Lee – CEC Entertainment

Don’t worry, they’re not breaking up the band at Chuck E. Cheese. A forerunner in using animatronics for entertainment, Chuck E. Cheese has been a birthday party destination for so long that grandparents are enjoying the shows again anew. However, as the iconic band of Chuck E. Cheese, Helen Henny, Jasper T. Jowls and Mr. […]

Leigh Pearson – Staples Canada

When someone buys ink or toner, they get to decide how to dispose of the empty cartridge. While Staples Canada agrees, it also feels a responsibility to recycle the products. “We want to provide solutions for recycling the products that we’re putting out there,” says Leigh Pearson, the senior director of facilities, sustainability, sourcing and […]

Anthony Fragale – Greenpark Group

A visit to Toronto and its surrounding communities quickly shows how the real estate market is looking up. That’s not just in terms of prices—it’s also about the high-rise projects filling the skyline in Toronto, Mississauga, Oakville and Vaughan. Anthony Fragale is making a career of building up. As the director of high-rise construction for […]

Bert Schnoebelen – Tecovas

It’s not just in Texas where boots are an indispensable part of one’s wardrobe. A high-end pair likely costing at least a few hundred dollars, you’ll probably want to try them on before pulling out the credit card. Especially if you’ll be shuffling across the dance floor to the Texas Two-Step or Tennessee Waltz. That’s […]

Simon Smith – Rightpoint

Simon Smith was not alone in assuming his company’s shift to remote work because of the COVID-19 pandemic would not be long-term. As the associate director of facilities and operations at Rightpoint, he says he expected the company’s offices to reopen about two months after they closed in March 2020. More than 18 months later, […]
