Case Studies Commercial

Tom Cahill – Donnelly Mechanical

They start working after everyone else has gone home for the night or called it a weekend, and the jobs are not pretty. The heating and cooling units are bulky and sensitive, sometimes weigh tons, and probably will be installed in a tight space with bad lighting. Doors and windows often need to be removed […]

CSM Group

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 […]

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 […]

Mathes Brierre Architects

The National WWII Museum has effectively become the centerpiece of New Orleans—and it is one of the most extensive projects in the long history of Mathes Brierre Architects. It shows. Enter the sleek and dramatic glass-paneled US Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center, and you’re surrounded by warbirds of all sizes and functions. Across the plaza […]

Michael Dorsch – DXI Construction

A fixture in the mid-Atlantic building industry for over two decades, Michael Dorsch thought he understood the capabilities of DXI Construction long before coming aboard as director of business development in October 2018.

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 […]

Mike Spindler – Spindler Construction Corp.

When he says it’s the nicest building of its kind in Logan, Utah, Mike Spindler may not just be boasting. The three-story structure that is Jon M. Huntsman Hall would grace any academic campus. But it seems most appropriate as the complementary addition to the Eccles Business Building on the southern edge of Utah State […]

George Giannouloudis – Roche Bros. Supermarkets

Visit Roche Bros. new Brothers Marketplace in seaside Duxbury, Massachusetts, and you can’t help but pick up on the decidedly maritime flair—the market’s exterior is covered with weathered shingles to mimic the local housing style and its interior is accented with buoys and lobster traps. The counters are lined with oysters and oyster products, the […]

Mike McCracken – Hospitality Restaurant Group

Upstate New York likes to “live mas,” and the Hospitality Restaurant Group is meeting the craving for Mexican-style food as it adds Taco Bell restaurants from Albany to Buffalo. “We are right in the middle of our busy season; we have 12 projects in the hopper right now,” says Mike McCracken, Hospitality’s Director of Asset […]

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.
