Ric Reppert – R. L. Reppert

As a little kid taking car rides around town, Ric Reppert remembers his father Rick pointing out all the buildings that were built by his company. That allure might have worn off when, as a young child, Reppert pushed a broom around the Pennsylvania warehouse as his first job in the company. But sorting screws […]

Jeff Masterson – J. Masterson Construction

For most folks with an interest in visiting Tufts University on the Medford-Somerville, Massachusetts, border, their first impression comes at the welcome center. Come the fall of 2021, it’ll be a new and very much improved welcome center, one named after Joyce Cummings, of the Cummings Foundation Inc.—one of New England’s largest such goodwill institutions. […]

Rick Cataffa – Federal Realty Investment Trust

Better days await the Old Keene Mill Shopping Center that everyone thought had seen better days in Springfield, Virginia. For like so many established shopping centers, some dating back to the 1970s, Old Keene Mill had taken on a tired appearance, even with Whole Foods as its anchor tenant and other national chains under the […]

Sal D’Ambrosia – Armistead Mechanical

The pipes and fittings seem to go on forever, extending back through the nooks, crannies and history of a building with no end in sight. And those are just the ones above ground. Contractors looking to repair or replace those pipes and fittings can always trace the paths themselves; grimy, gritty work in tight spaces […]

Kevin Blanch – Arch Painting Inc.

Over a time-intensive four months, workers meticulously did their jobs. They cordoned off stalls using plastic barriers, vented dust and odors and repainted. All this while in adjoining areas, large animals including horses, alpacas, goats and sheep were undergoing surgery, MRIs, ultrasounds and other procedures. “Painting a facility for animals is tricky enough but painting […]

Garrett Bergen – New York Public Library

Storied and stoic, the New York Public Library is known for its books, its vast research repository and its lectures—and for being the stronghold for survivors of an icy apocalypse in the 2004 movie “The Day After Tomorrow,” during which survivors are forced to choose which books to burn to stay warm. But Garrett Bergen […]

Dean Sorenson – Kendal at Hanover

Dean Sorenson is not one of the 400 people living at Kendal at Hanover, a nonprofit mix of residences for independent and assisted living near the banks of the Connecticut River in New Hampshire. But as director of facilities, Sorenson has come to call the 65-acre campus home, embracing its Quaker values of love, respect […]

Mike Winkler – Kasselman Electric Co.

It’s called “pulling cable” in the electrician’s trade, and they’ve done a lot of it at Kasselman Electric Co. over the company’s 70-year history. Yet as Kasselman President and CEO Becky Kasselman points out, the company has steadily evolved from wiring commercial, industrial and larger scale residential jobs in upstate New York to installing security […]

Britain Jacobson – EVERFI

Even a digital schoolhouse needs a brick and mortar home. However, EVERFI, the Washington, D.C.-based provider of digital online educational content, does not need chalkboards, erasers or old school audiovisual equipment to help its customers learn; it just needed more space. Planning for the move from its old location to the new one began in […]

Tom Cahill – Donnelly Mechanical

They start working after everyone else has gone home for the night or called it a weekend, and the jobs are not pretty. The heating and cooling units are bulky and sensitive, sometimes weigh tons, and probably will be installed in a tight space with bad lighting. Doors and windows often need to be removed […]
