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 […]

Clauss Construction

When you’re a spectator, the process could take all of 7 seconds. There are several thunderous bangs; the structure buckles, caves, then it’s lost in a billowing poof of smoke and dust. And just like that, a building is demolished. It’s the mission of Clauss Construction to make it seem that simple, anyway. “The planning […]

Unless you’re expecting a hefty class-action settlement, getting a call out of the blue from an attorney you don’t know probably isn’t something to get excited about.

Derrick C.W. Childs has his hands full—literally—on a late May day, handling an array of tools as well as a cellphone during a lively interview from a construction site in Cleveland. But that’s business as usual for this high-spirited man whose work ethic and Christian faith run deep. And, as if heaven-sent, business is booming […]

There’s life yet in The Foundry, a different kind of existence to be sure than when it was the foremost metal-casting facility in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

For many professionals, especially the young up-and-comers who so drive the hi-tech, innovative and creative economies, inspiration may not easily spring up among the bland office cubicles where Dilbert is doomed to toil. Co-working spaces may better nurture that all-important start-up feel and foster a sense of community. Then again, traditional offices still serve a […]
