Case Studies Companies to Watch 2019

David Miller – Miller Paneling Specialties

When the nation’s newest casino resort was being built just north of Boston in Everett, Massachusetts, the bosses called upon Miller Paneling Specialties to outfit the interior. For the Sterling, Virginia-based company that operates in every state could make Encore Boston Harbor endure as well as sparkle. Furthermore it had an operation in the South […]

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 […]

Iga Wyrzykowski – XpresSpa

To Iga Wyrzykowski, there’s a certain awe that strikes her when she walks through an airport, past one of the XpresSpa stores she’s helped create. “I walk by and think to myself, ‘Wow I designed that!,’” XpresSpa’s director of store design and construction says. “The transformation is amazing. It’s incredible to think that I designed […]

Steve Deering – Spec Formliners Inc.

You can’t complain too much when the traffic backs up on Interstate 405 between Seal Beach and Costa Mesa. For many of the 16 car-jammed miles, the vistas of wildlife are breathtaking. Well, sort of. The scenes of plants and animals are at once real and imagined, molded and engraved into the concrete walls, dividers […]

Rick Fechter – School District of Menomonee Falls

You sound like a football coach, Rick Fechter is told during a midsummer interview with Blueprint. The approachable but demanding facilities director of the Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, school district takes it as a compliment. He concedes there’s no room for subpar performers on his NFL-sized team of around 45. Especially with the start of the […]

Dan Zalkow — Portland State University

A $100 million construction project is hard enough for any one builder, even with the best of plans. Now try it with four vested stakeholders in the project, three of them viewing it as crucial to the future of the educational opportunities they offer. Such is the case in Portland, Oregon, with 4th & Montgomery, […]

Randall F. Hoppe – National Management Resources Corp.

Its physical plant costly and in need of upgrade a few years ago, a private college in New Jersey called upon the National Management Resources Corp., a Georgia company that’s become the go-to source for getting campus facilities up to par. Some broken steam pipes would be removed with others repaired, and campus buildings would […]

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. Though in the time that’s passed since his hiring, Dorsch may wonder if he’d underestimated just how seriously his new employer takes […]

Dominic Petruzzelli – City of Chicago

It might just be the best part of Dominic Petruzzelli’s job, walking past an art exhibit on his way to a planning meeting or hearing classical music wafting through the hallways of Chicago’s Cultural Center, a gorgeous 150-year-old neoclassical building located in the heart of the city’s downtown Loop. As director of facilities management for […]

David Handwork – Arkansas State University

When a person interviews for a job, it is said to take just three seconds for the interviewer to develop an opinion of him or her. The same pretty much holds true for high school seniors pondering where to continue their education, says the man entrusted with tending to the aesthetics and facilities at Arkansas […]
