Andy Poticha – Mosaic Construction and Cannabis Facility Construction

Lifelong design builder Andy Poticha has never won the lottery, but he got lucky several years ago when a former client got some of the first medical cannabis licenses in Illinois and asked him to design and build dispensaries for the business. “I had never seen a dispensary before, and now we’re getting half our […]

Andrew Hartnett – Brentwood School District

Like most students, Andrew Hartnett couldn’t wait to graduate high school. He imagined that whatever awaited him in the “real world” would be more interesting than going to Brentwood High School every day. Little did he know, he’d find his way back there 15 years later, this time by choice. “Clamoring to come back” when […]

Aaron Hammer – Gundersen St. Joseph’s Hospital & Clinics

Hillsboro, Wisconsin, a community with a population of 1,400, holds many memories for Aaron Hammer. He grew up in what’s sometimes called the Czech capital of the state, a small, rural area wedged snuggly between rivers and woodland in the beautiful hill country of southwestern Wisconsin. And now, Hammer’s working there, doing his best to […]

Achour Odicho – Verano Holdings

When Achour Odicho took a break from college to intern at an architecture firm, his plans didn’t go as he’d imagined. The internship bored him, and he left when he saw an ad seeking a freelance designer for a cannabis company. He spent the next two years working remotely on license applications. From there, Odicho […]

Andrew Mathers – Transportation Research Center Inc.

Wouldn’t it be cool to work at a vehicle test track? One where automated vehicles negotiate realistic highways, traffic lights, high-speed intersections and an 80-acre city? Andrew Mathers, director of facilities for Transportation Research Center Inc., doesn’t just work there. He’s helping build it. In its latest innovation, Transportation Research Center, an independent vehicle testing […]

Andrew Freeman – Ohio University Zanesville/Zane State College

An arborist at heart and a campus facilities director by profession, Andrew Freeman finds the two endeavors complementary in his role at Ohio University Zanesville and Zane State College. “Trees enhance the campus environment,” he emphasizes during a December interview with Blueprint. “Sometimes, however, they have to be relocated, and that has been an ongoing […]

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. Because while Adamo Group Inc. has prospered and transformed with the times, Richard Adamo insists it has held fast to values associated with being a family-run business, such […]

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 […]

Adam Cimaroli – LafargeHolcim

Adam Cimaroli thinks about cement so his customers and partners don’t have to—where it needs to go, safely, effectively and at the lowest cost. “We want to have cement available when customers need it, where they need it, how much and what type they need,” says Cimaroli, senior manager of terminal projects for LafargeHolcim. It’s […]

Amanda Janzen – Schafer Richardson

If, just a little over three years ago, you had taken a walk to 300 Second Street SE in Minneapolis, Minnesota, you would have been struck by an eyesore not unlike many that pockmark former mill cities. A two-story building of smudged, light-colored brick, drooping on one side with widespread mold and rust, windows boarded […]
