Michael Guerrero – The Hoxton, Williamsburg

Before you book your room at The Hoxton, Williamsburg hotel in Brooklyn, know that Michael Guerrero has slept in your bed, jumped in your shower and watched your television—and rest assured all those elements passed muster with him. Testing out guestrooms is just one of the practices Guerrero, the director of engineering for the UK-based […]

David Wickersham – Progressive Pipeline Management

It’s the kind of record-breaking achievement that only gets noticed by those concerned with pipeline infrastructure. Who else gives a second thought to what’s underfoot as long as the utilities are duly humming? But as long as such matters can be taken for granted, somebody must be doing something right, and in the summer of […]

Jill Javor – November Properties & York Investment Properties LLC

On a calm October day, Jill Javor, husband Attila and 6 1/2 year-old son, Ryan, stand beside U.S. Rep. Ralph Norman, their ribbon cutting scissors poised and ready. It’s the official opening of the 127-room Cambria Hotel Fort Mill in South Carolina. The property is just a healthy bike ride away from the sold-out, wait-listed, […]

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 […]

[…]

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.
