When Thanksgiving 2023 came to the Hogen household in Mankato, Minnesota, there were many things Scott Hogen was thankful for, including the vote earlier that month that saw residents approve a $105 million bond for Mankato Area Public Schools for various projects that will set the district up for future success.  “The vote was a […]

It’s a sensitive operation, much like what goes on in the surgical units at St. Luke’s Hospital in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Only it’s the hospital itself undergoing the operation as part of several major renovations and expansion projects that have been ongoing since 2020. And a hospital being a 24/7/365 operation, some very intricate procedures […]

High diving is not for the faint of heart. But for many professional divers, the thrill of flipping and flying from a great height into a pool is unmatched. In world championship competitions, men dive from 27 meters, which is roughly equal to eight stories. Until last year, the only place to practice this feat […]

Est. reading time: 4 mins

The Indiana Statehouse and State Government Center has had some ups and downs, literally. Seems the machinery that runs the elevators is outdated. Due to digital advancements and service disruptions, the original parts have become increasingly difficult to replace.

Those adhesive medicated patches and films can be quite the comforter, bringing relief to chronic pain, opioid addiction and Parkinson’s, to name just a few conditions. But while simple in appearance, so-called oral thin films and transdermal delivery systems are quite intricate, each a complex dosage delivery system that requires a sophisticated and robust manufacturing […]

In 2013, when students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison said they needed better recreation centers and a plan to improve the overall health and wellbeing of campus, administrators knew they were right.

Scott Shirkey – Emprise Bank

Est. reading time: 4 mins

There’s a rustic sense to Emprise Bank’s newest commercial lending office. This one is a remodeled second-story flat above a restaurant in the historic Crossroads Arts District, just south of Downtown Loop and north of Crown Center in Kansas City, Missouri. It’s a lively neighborhood of former warehouses and industrial buildings where coffeehouses, brew pubs, […]

Scott Rychel – ATIGROUP

Admittedly, the project at the Edward Hines Jr. VA Hospital in Hines, Illinois, was not your standard chiller replacement and proved to be very challenging in many respects. Trenches in the dirt filling up with groundwater within the existing central plant gave a whole new meaning to cold, wet and muddy, according to Scott Rychel, […]

Steven Pecic – Wayne State University

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Uprooting a brick house that is a campus landmark was not in his plans when Steven Pecic arrived at Detroit’s Wayne State University in 2006. Then again, neither was overseeing the entire facility’s operational portfolio and maintenance of the campus, or participating in the construction of the $65 million project that takes the place of […]
