Nicholas Nilio – Healthfirst

It certainly doesn’t happen often, an unstable or disgruntled person entering the workplace and setting off a scenario that must be quickly defused. But there’s enough risk of this occupational hazard for Nicholas Nilio to take preemptive measures on behalf of Healthfirst employees, New York’s largest nonprofit health insurer. Director of facilities and workplace security […]

Thomas Roche – Bristol Health

It’s becoming more of a rarity, the independent community hospital such as what you’ll find in Bristol, Connecticut. A full-service, 154-bed facility, Bristol Hospital—which is part of Bristol Health—is noted for being the Nutmeg State’s top-ranked when it comes to protecting patients from infections. Only its aging Emergency Center was due for upgrade. That upgrade […]

John Murray – Martha’s Vineyard Hospital

There’s a smell test that must pass John Murray’s muster daily. Sight and sound tests, too. Senior director of facilities at Martha’s Vineyard Hospital since its new facility opened in June 2010, Murray is much more hands-on than his counterparts at the bigger institutions on the mainland. He has to be, this being a small, […]

Paul Kacha – Framaco International Inc.

It’s nearing completion, albeit later than originally projected in September 2019, but that’s understandable. Constructing part of a new U.S. embassy compound in a geographically remote island nation on the other side of the world is a formidable task under the most favorable of circumstances. This year has been anything but, with a global pandemic […]

Christine McHugh

Imagine you’re negotiating a real estate lease for a global firm that does most of its work overseas. How do you assess off-hour HVAC/power usage requirements or factor energy use intensity provisions into your lease deal? “If you are managing real estate portfolios, understanding energy consumption patterns is key,” says Christine McHugh, who manages global […]

Ronnie Mewengkang – Solomon Page

It’s bound to lift, or at least mitigate, this pandemic that’s so disrupted the world as we know it. But even if the risks of COVID-19 are deemed manageable enough for employees to return to work, Ronnie Mewengkang’s very proactive sanitation measures won’t rest. In just a few months, he’s come too far as facilities […]

Jaime Palmer Walliker – RIU Hotels & Resorts

When Jaime Palmer Walliker joined Spanish-based RIU Hotels & Resorts in 2001 as a mechanical engineer working at the company’s Caribbean properties, he saw it as the logical next step in his career—a way to ready himself for the opportunities ahead. Little did he know, they’d all come under the same roof. Nearly 20 years later, Palmer has become an […]

Tim Andersen – C&S Companies

There are many metaphors related to seeing colors: Everything is golden when all goes well; red if you’re angered; green when financial success is well in hand. As C&S Companies grows across the U.S., Tim Andersen sees teal—an emerging business paradigm introduced in 2014 by author Frédéric Laloux, that defines success through better self-organization and self-management. For more than 50 years, Syracuse-based C&S has provided design-build services in upstate New York, taking projects from […]

Urban Property Management Co. – Bill Kasper

You’re living and working in Boston, and your building’s hot water system has malfunctioned or failed while you were at the office. But you don’t know this, and after your long day and the trip home on the T, you arrive ready for a hot shower. Thankfully, you’ll have one because while you were working, […]

Comico Hadden

When it comes to pulling together construction projects, Comico Hadden got a formidable lesson from two strong-minded women in her life who taught her anything can be achieved with hard work and persistence. She learned that firsthand when her mother and grandmother bought an affordable fixer-upper in northern New Jersey and taught the 8-year-old how […]
