Case Studies Commercial

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 […]

Jeff Masterson – J. Masterson Construction

For most folks with an interest in visiting Tufts University on the Medford-Somerville, Massachusetts, border, their first impression comes at the welcome center. Come the fall of 2021, it’ll be a new and very much improved welcome center, one named after Joyce Cummings, of the Cummings Foundation Inc.—one of New England’s largest such goodwill institutions. […]

Jason Waters – Edwards Construction Services

A world unto itself in central Florida, The Villages has all the amenities of a bustling modern city and a small town community at the same time. There’s a Wolfgang Puck Restaurant, a hotel and spa, and shopping accessible by golf cart. There’s also a golf course and a variety of recreational facilities to support […]

Joel Koffron – TRC Companies Inc.

The best advice Joel Koffron’s father Arthur gave him about the construction field was to develop technical solutions that had “both a belt and suspenders” so your “pants” won’t fall down and expose your “weaknesses.” Koffron, now the construction manager at Lowell, Massachusetts-based TRC Companies Inc. never forgot the guidance passed down from father to […]

Joe Murray – ACT Construction

Let’s say you’re sitting in your corporate office in Illinois, but you want to check on one of your restaurants being built in Texas. You log in to your project manager software, and in a few clicks you have a live feed of the construction site: where workers are focused for the day; what materials […]

John Hartmann – Hartmann Electric Co. Inc.

His company noted for powering infrastructure at Chicago’s two international airports, John Hartmann recently turned down a request to send a crew well outside the Windy City. Thanks, but no thanks, the 33-year-old vice president of third-generation Hartmann Electric Co. Inc. politely told a would-be customer who sought expertise on a baggage handling project at […]

J.S. Archer Co. Inc.

It’s said that locks are only for honest people, but that might be more for the basic door. For the specialty wares furnished and installed by J.S. Archer Co. Inc. in Ashland, Virginia, keep more than burglars out. There are also the fires, explosions, floods, storms, vehicular crashes or whatever else that must be withstood. […]

James G. Staat Tuckpointing and Waterproofing

History and architecture have always been inextricably linked. From ancient ruins to the most gravity-defying postmodern structures, our buildings tell stories, and like any world-changing book or glass-encased document, it’s our duty to preserve them. If the structure happens to be in or near St. Louis, Missouri, there’s a decent chance James G. Staat Tuckpointing […]

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 […]

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 […]
