Bennington College

After nearly 30 years of planning, and a mound of architectural concepts considered, rethought and reworked, Bennington College is preparing to renovate its historic flagship building, known as Commons. Located on the south side of the progressive Vermont liberal arts institution, the 45,000-square-foot, three-story red brick structure has been the center of campus life since […]

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 […]

Atkin Olshin Schade Architects

By any measure, the late Louis Kahn (1901-1974) was among America’s most prominent architects, but that doesn’t mean the eccentric Philadelphian was infallible in every project he undertook. The Richards Medical Research Laboratory he designed for the University of Pennsylvania in the late 1950s may have met every aesthetic test, even scoring National Historic Landmark […]

Dreamline Modular Homes

When Henry Ford started using the assembly line to manufacture his Model Ts, people thought he was crazy. Kris Megna and Doug Carlson get a similar reaction when they tell people about their company, Dreamline Modular Homes, which wants to do for homebuilding what Ford did for car manufacturing. Based in Lexington, Massachusetts, Dreamline Modular […]

Seele Inc.

When a client wanted to build a 35-meter-long, encased pedestrian bridge made of interlocking commercial bronze, glass and steel over Queen Street, Toronto, Canada’s busiest shopping mile, Seele Inc.—the North American division of Seele Group—rose to the challenge. The project required that an old bridge be dismantled and the new bridge be installed within two, […]

DLP Builders

During his 40-year career, Larry Greenberg has built more than 1,000 homes. He’s renovated and sold hundreds of others, too. For much of that time, Greenberg ran his own successful companies, including Hannover Homes, and JRN Construction, all of which were well-known in the Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania, area. It might surprise some, then, that Greenberg […]

SilverLining Inc.

Josh Wiener grew up helping his parents restore the Manhattan townhouse they bought in 1963, but his time for sorting nails has long come and gone, replaced by loftier goals. Now he is president of SilverLining Inc. and, with his Partner Joel Arencibia and support from a tightknit group of managers, restores high-end luxury apartments […]

Williams College Science Center Renewal Project

Successful buildings must have both form and function. In 1968, architect Benjamin Thompson built the Bronfman Science Center at Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts. The building certainly had form for that era. Used as a teaching point by art history professors, Bronfman exemplified how a modern building could be compatible with older architectural styles; its […]

Adler Windows

When Adler Windows hosts a walking tour through New York City, the window and door installation company does more than show off the city’s impressive skyline. As an official education provider for the American Institute of Architects (AIA), a nonprofit that supports the continued education of architects, Adler Windows uses these walks to teach building […]
