Case Studies Commercial

David J. Benjack – Chesapeake Drywall & Acoustics Inc.

Opportunities may beckon well outside the 80-mile radius extending from Portsmouth, Virginia, but there are more than enough projects here to sustain Chesapeake Drywall & Acoustics Inc.  “No need to overextend,” President and owner David J. Benjack tells Blueprint in early spring. Not that this is shaping up as one of the livelier commercial construction seasons of late. Like practically every other industry, construction within that radius—which extends from Portsmouth […]

Angie Simon – Western Allied Mechanical

Researchers and staff have taught, studied and discovered inside the University of California San Francisco’s Clinical Sciences Building for nearly 90 years. Since opening in 1933, the eight-story, 109,000-square-foot building has stood strong throughout many shakes, tremors and all-out earthquakes that have rocked the City by the Bay, including the devastating 1989 earthquake that caused […]

Paulo Souza – PSI Roofing

Working 20 stories above the ground in the scorching sun can be a brutal fact of life for the South Florida roofing business. But that’s where you’ll find PSI Roofing’s Paulo Souza, who has to handle everything from safety issues to environmental factors—not to mention the volatile economic cycles of a hurricane-riddled industry. Having been […]

Lisa Fekete – Modern Woodcrafts

The people of Plainville, Connecticut, hadn’t seen anything like it before. It was the arrival of high-rolling real estate developer and billionaire Stephen M. Ross—by helicopter, no less. The owner of the Miami Dolphins was checking on the mockup display of a $5 million interior design project being made for him by millworkers at Modern Woodcrafts. […]

Andrew Grundman – Grundman Mechanical Systems

Heating, ventilation and air conditioning are all about comfort. So is managing business relationships.

While the senior Grundman might claim Andrew worked in the company at age 5 […]

Konrad Eriksen – Dynamic Isolation Systems

On Feb. 22, 2011, a 6.7-magnitude earthquake struck Christchurch, in the Canterbury Region of New Zealand’s South Island. The resulting peak ground acceleration (PGA)—the highest ever recorded—decimated the downtown business district and, according to eyewitnesses, tossed people into the air, thrown by the thrust of the earth’s vertical lift. Liquefaction of subterranean material—one of the […]

Chris Powers – Donnelly Construction

It’s simple, really: Donnelly Industries stands apart from its competitors in the world of general contracting because the company can self-perform any type of carpentry and can supplement with subcontractors when necessary. President Chris Powers explains: If a drywall contractor is falling behind on a given project, Donnelly can send in its own team to […]

Ted Norman – United PF Partners, Planet Fitness

Up north, they might call it Yankee ingenuity. Down south, it might go by another term, but it’s still the same: thrifty use of whatever’s available to complete a task. Which was how one of Alabama’s newest Planet Fitness gyms was able to meet its scheduled opening by 2018’s end. Only that didn’t appear likely […]

Chuck Hall – Winston’s Chimney Service

On a long winter’s night, what could be better than cozying up to a warm hearth, a good book or binge-worthy Netflix show to help you wind down? Be it pine crackling in the fireplace or the soft flame of a gas log or heater insert, a good fire takes away the chill—and brings charm […]

Brad Arceneaux – Market Basket

It really was a game of inches—two of them, to be precise. In 2017, when Hurricane Harvey inundated the Texas Gulf Coast, the Market Basket grocery store in Mauriceville, Texas, was one of countless properties to experience significant flooding. So when it came time to build a replacement store, company Director of Facilities Brad Arceneaux […]
