Case Studies Design-Build

BlackRock Construction

Adam Hergenrother respects the privacy of his clients and doesn’t boast about the prominent people who have bought some of the high-end houses that BlackRock Construction, the company he and his brother Tom co-founded in 2012, has built in beautiful, bucolic Vermont and upstate New York. Nevertheless, word gets around, and a couple of years […]

Jerry’s Homes

“Never start a home that you can’t afford to finish,” John Grubb told his brother Jerry in 1957, when the latter returned from the Korean War and decided to found Jerry’s Homes, a one-man development and homebuilding company. John was likely talking financials when he extended the advice, but Jerry didn’t solely see the company […]

MRG Construction Management Inc.

Starting a new business, in any industry, requires striking a balance between the size of the company and the volume of work it handles. Increasing the staff too quickly, without sales to support it, can sap profits, while taking on too much work can overwhelm the staff. Matt Genzale, the founder and owner of MRG […]

O,R&L Construction

The Northeast power grid has been reliable as of late, but prudent clients don’t take anything for granted. Come heat wave, blizzard or flood, the coastal city of Bridgeport, Connecticut, isn’t likely to have to worry about outages, as the midsummer saw its municipal microgrid nearing completion. With the Branford, Connecticut, company of O,R&L Construction […]

Dan Waibel Designer Builder LLC

The walls are upright, the plumbing is installed, the roof is secured, electric is done. It’s time for most design-build construction firms to move on, but Vice President and Head of Design at Dan Waibel Designer Builder Will Waibel, says his firm’s work is only partially done. “While the typical design builder will usually leave […]

Hendrick Inc.

It may be a building’s exterior that gives that all-important first—some say, lasting—impression, but the interior is equally as important. It’s where people spend a large portion of their day. When that building is part of the hospitality industry, it had better seem hospitable. That means that as business practices, employers and employees evolve, they […]

Crestone Builders Inc.

Many is the young person who, even after college, doesn’t know just what it is he or she wants to do. “I’ve got to find myself,” that new graduate might say. Then there are people like Eric Skott. The founder of Crestone Builders Inc. in Watertown, South Dakota, was just 16 when he found himself […]

Brechbill & Helman Construction Co.

History buffs have long been drawn to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, site of the 1863 Civil War battle that so turned the tide in the Union’s favor and inspired Abraham Lincoln’s famous address. At, of course, a high price. The casualty count could have filled a modern baseball stadium. About 50,000 men, fairly evenly divided between those […]

D&B Elite Construction Group

Relationships matter: It’s perhaps the most oft-iterated of sentiments in the construction industry. Yet it never ceases to be true, and millennials Dan Gring and Brennan Reichenbach prove it’s an idea worth building on as they make their impression on the aging industry. Gring and Reichenbach first met as students at Elizabethtown College in southeast […]

Ehrlich Design Builders Inc.

It’s shaping up to be a lively year in Nashville. Actually, every year is, as there’s rarely a dull moment in Music City, but the first part of 2017 was really something special with the Predators’ unlikely trip to the Stanley Cup finals, while Carrie Underwood led the cheers as her battle-scarred other half, Mike […]
