Case Studies Companies to Watch 2020

Michael Pamintuan – Infoblox

Call it a tale of two West Coast cities—ones that share a major employer—and the man tasked with ensuring the company’s physical facilities bring out the best in their respective work forces. “We have to find a way to bridge that gap and keep the culture and energy level consistent amongst all our locations,” explains […]

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 […]

David Timm – St. Mary Mercy Hospital

Years ago, if David Timm’s pager went off at 1 a.m. with news that water was inundating the basement of St. Mary Mercy Hospital, he might’ve lost his mind. Therein lies the beauty of being a director of facilities for more than three decades: If you’ve seen it once, you’ve seen it a thousand times […]

Deb Antes – University of Chicago Medicine

Movin’ on up in the South Side is proving a tough job for the University of Chicago Medicine system. The demand for new and expanded services is there, but the land is not. When the system does find new spaces to buy or lease, Director of Architectural Services Deb Antes leads the buildout process. She […]

Michael Marrazzo – Summit Facility Solutions

If you tuned in to the Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting event this past holiday season, you would’ve seen the 77-foot tall Norway spruce twinkle to life with 50,000 multi-colored LED lights and a Swarovski crystal star—a scintillating backdrop to kicking Rockettes and musical performers including John Legend. What you didn’t see was the team from […]

Marc Zimmer – Frener & Reifer

It was definitely not a case of “one if by land, two if by sea.” Instead, when it came time to deliver and install the 32-foot-high glass panels for the new Apple flagship store façade in Chicago, it was bring it by barge up the Chicago River. The panels were not just dropped off at […]

Gabriel Dilworth – Cirrus Asset Management Inc.

The first part of the renovation didn’t make the tenants happy, and Gabriel Dilworth could understand. After all, nobody appreciates their views being blocked by tarp. Not when the vista includes the Pacific Ocean. But this six-story apartment building on the island of Oahu had aged beyond its 40-plus years—worn by a combination of deferred […]
