As far as Victor A. Mirontschuk is concerned, it’s one thing to draw up fanciful designs with nouveau buildings and all the latest trends from “Architectural Record”—which tend to end up behind a frame, in a portfolio, or delegated to a drawer. It’s altogether different to craft buildings that exceed a client’s specifications while satisfying […]

Karen Diener

Between 2014 and 2015, internet pioneer AOL acquired mobile-ad giant Millennial Media, attribution marketing company Convertro, and Microsoft’s advertising business—all in the same 18-month stretch. For Karen Diener, AOL’s longtime senior director of real estate, the trio of deals presented a unique challenge. In a typical acquisition, the acquiring company will procure both people and […]

Hershocks Inc.

Appearances may not be everything, but they sure count. Maybe especially so that first one. So when folks drive into the access way of UGI Utilities Inc.’s new headquarters in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, they should be duly impressed. The sprawling three-story office complex on 32 scenic acres is a recent example of what Hershocks, the […]

T.N. Ward Company

You could say the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino placed a safe bet in the hands of Thomas Falvey and the T.N. Ward Co. team headed up in Atlantic City by Executive Vice President John Devecchio. A large one, to be sure—the resort chain entrusting them to wager $1 million per day over the span […]

Curriculum Associates

Quite the dovetail between the company’s mission and that of its director of real estate and facilities. “From the CEO on down, we live by the motto ‘Making classrooms better places for teachers and students,’” the affable and enterprising Jim Finco tells Blueprint in January. “So I guess my motto would be ‘Making the workspace […]

Lyndsay Bennett

Architecture is a complex, involved profession, but Lyndsay Bennett has been captivated by it since childhood. With her father working as a contractor, at an early age Bennett began drawing pictures of houses similar to those she saw around her neighborhood. “I was always looking at construction and home design magazines,” she says. “My dad […]

Matthias Muckle – Bayer

Growing up in the West German capital of Bonn, in the uncertain years before and after reunification, Matthias Muckle marveled at the city’s multicultural verve: the kaleidoscope of faces on every street, the mix of gothic and postmodern architecture, meeting families from foreign embassies on early evening strolls with his parents. Today, he still yearns […]

Joe Umosella – INTEX

Originally built in 1912 and sited just blocks from the leafy hallows of Harvard Yard, the four-story Winthrop House stands as a jewel of the school’s turn-of-the-century expansion. In the building’s endless brick and the white-trimmed windows, Harvard’s federal-style aesthetic echoes like an architectural clarion call. So when Joe Umosella learned his company had won […]

Krista Sinker – Comcast Corporation

It’s currently the ninth tallest building in the United States, piercing the Philadelphia skyline with 1,121 feet of steel and glass. Inside the lobby, living trees accentuate the wood tiles and paneled walls, while a massive sculpture of reflective metal triangles, each seemingly suspended midair, rises between a pair of escalators. Within its 60 floors […]

Engel Burman Construction

It might be one of the unintended consequences of the relaxation of marijuana laws, if not the outright legalization in some states, with New York soon likely to be among them. “With pot being legalized in so many places, the drug cartels are turning to heroin and fentanyl,” says Scott Burman, the president of the […]
