Three major casinos abound in the greater Tulsa, Oklahoma, area, means a high-stakes arms race among them, and the need for each to adapt in an ever-evolving gaming business. This past fall, Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Tulsa ascertained it’s in the game for the long haul. Completing an extensive remodeling of rooms, some of […]

Adamo Group Inc.

If the late John T. Adamo Sr. could see the business he started 54 years ago, his son Richard M. Adamo is certain he would be proud.

Mike Dolbec – Windsong Custom Homes

It was a mild, mid-autumn day in Williston, North Dakota, when Mike Dolbec answered a call from Blueprint, but the friendly president of Windsong Custom Homes couldn’t talk long. For winter comes early in this northwest corner of what’s sometimes known as the Roughrider State. The mercury still in the 60s, there were foundations to […]

Rob Tolle – WDG Construction Group Inc.

It’s a major part of Milwaukee’s history, the Pabst Blue Ribbon brewery that shuttered in 1996, when its bosses opted to move operations, first to Stroh’s headquarters in the western Wisconsin city of La Crosse and then to Los Angeles. For many of the ensuing years, that landmark complex in the so-called Cream City’s northwest […]

If the structure happens to be in or near St. Louis, Missouri, there’s a decent chance James G. Staat Tuckpointing […]

Walter Fisher – Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants

As you walk inside, the first thing you see is the palatial collection of wine bottles, whites and reds, set within shelves that nearly reach the 16-foot ceiling. Adjacent display stands showcase decanters, aerators, stoppers and other wine accoutrements. At the Napa-style tasting table, a friendly server offers up a gamut-spanning menu of pours. Hearing […]

Anne Fridrych – Waste Management

As you exit the elevator, the first thing you notice is the giant wall of living moss, so green and inviting you can’t help but picture napping in a forest. Walk onto the main floor and you’re suddenly awash in natural light reflecting off the office’s glass doors. Along the windows, employees at light maple […]
