Eric Kelly – Paramount Realty Services

Eric Kelly | Paramount Realty Services | Director of Construction To paraphrase Mark Twain, rumors of the retail industry’s death have been exaggerated.

Tom Pelis – Oswego Health

Financing and staffing during COVID-19 is tough in the healthcare business. Still, Tom Pelis is juggling both so Oswego Health’s facilities can continue several necessary construction projects, including an $8 million renovation of its surgical wings. “Whatever the project is, the goal is always the same: delivering excellence in care,” says Pelis, Oswego Health’s director, […]

Marc Rienow – Gengras Motor Cars

They told him when he started he wouldn’t be asked to work at the auto dealerships. No, Marc Rienow was hired specifically to care for the Gengras family’s 40-acre estate in central Connecticut; he’d not be setting foot on Motor Cars lots or inside showrooms. That didn’t last long—within three months after his 1993 hiring, […]

Tim Singleton – Wellesley College

Walking around Wellesley College’s campus just outside of Boston, students have been treated to a pastoral landscape that has changed little since 1875. Stone and brick buildings are nestled between groves of woodland trees and winding paths hug the shoreline of Lake Waban. That made the redevelopment of Science Hill—including a new redesign of historic […]

Santiago Quiroz – Campus Life & Style

Growing up in an economically depressed neighborhood in San Antonio, Texas, was not ideal, says Santiago Quiroz. Following high school, he saw no real opportunities and he almost got in trouble.

Richard Stone – UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital

Versatility may be just what the doctors ordered. Literally. So says the man in charge of support services and construction administration at an upstate New York hospital that’s immersed in an ambitious multiphase redesign and expansion. Planning for upgrades to UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital commenced in 2015, with the hammers finally ringing three years later. […]

Brian Hamilton – Resorts World Catskills

Martin Luther King Jr. even received an award at the Concord in 1963. The hotel closed […]

Chuck Pagnotta – The Briad Group

The party hasn’t really ended at the new AC Hotel by Marriott Bridgewater. It’s only been toned down by a pandemic that’s lessened good times just about everywhere, including here in north central New Jersey. But when some sense of normalcy resumes, this place will really be rockin.’ So assures Chuck Pagnotta, who was among […]
