Case Studies Companies to Watch 2019

Josh McCollom – Kalera

You know you’re on to something when kids love eating salad. And not only that, they look forward to the bundles of leafy greens you bring home and can identify the different varieties on their plates. This has been Josh McCollom’s experience with his two young children since joining Kalera—and it’s a motivating factor for […]

Ric Reppert – R. L. Reppert

As a little kid taking car rides around town, Ric Reppert remembers his father Rick pointing out all the buildings that were built by his company. That allure might have worn off when, as a young child, Reppert pushed a broom around the Pennsylvania warehouse as his first job in the company. But sorting screws […]

Kaisey Kenkel – Hertz

The headaches of flying need not be passed on to ground transportation, which has been getting easier, airport by airport. Last November, Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport—the nation’s third busiest—followed the recent model of others, consolidating car rental operations, parking and vehicular transit under one massive 2.5 million-square-foot offsite shell. But while O’Hare built this Multi […]

Brandon Lark – Great Southwestern Construction Inc.

Over the past 10 years, as the construction business worked to dig itself out of the Great Recession, EPC contracts (short for engineering, procurement and construction) became the go-to delivery method for a growing number of utilities and renewable energy developers. While EPC agreements have existed for decades, their core concepts—reducing risk and bringing all […]

Rick Cataffa – Federal Realty Investment Trust

Better days await the Old Keene Mill Shopping Center that everyone thought had seen better days in Springfield, Virginia. For like so many established shopping centers, some dating back to the 1970s, Old Keene Mill had taken on a tired appearance, even with Whole Foods as its anchor tenant and other national chains under the […]

Neil Lockhart – AmeriConstruct

In this tale of two cities, it may be the best of times and—though far from the worst—a very challenging time for the construction industry. For reasons unique to San Francisco and Houston, the building business is indeed booming in and around these great cities, with cranes pointing skyward like index fingers signaling victory. But […]

Tona Khau – Sno-Isle Libraries

Tucked away on islands and small inland towns, some libraries are barely bigger than a living room, while others are almost twice as large as a retail store. More than places to get a book, they’re education hubs, community centers and places to gather. Yet to fulfill these many roles, the Sno-Isle Libraries system north […]

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 […]
