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 […]

Cascade Builders

He won’t reveal the client, other than it’s a very well-to-do man—obviously—from Burlington, Vermont, who now calls Greenwich, Connecticut, his legal residence, but returns to the Green Mountain State as often as circumstances allow. By midsummer, that gentleman and his extended family should be enjoying their Vermont downtime in the picture-postcard town of Shelburne where […]

Marvin Smith – Penn State College of Medicine

Marvin Smith once managed large airfield maintenance and construction for the U.S. Air Force. Today, he’s focused on intricate medical complexes. Ultimately, the two endeavors aren’t all that different, the civil engineer says. Both are pressure-filled, require significant attention to detail and allow little margin for error. “I do enjoy the challenges,” says Smith, assistant […]

Kanta Electric

Even today, six years after the storm surges flooded cities, washed up boats and destroyed coastal property, the scars of Superstorm Sandy remain. Some are invisible—the emotional damage wrought by the loss of life and home—but others can still be seen in battered buildings and gouged-out shorelines throughout the mid-Atlantic and into the Northeast, from […]

Christian Science Plaza

For many of us working in Boston on Sept. 11, 2001, it was a place where we gathered by happenstance that evening while walking the downtown and its perimeter, just trying to make sense of the awful events that had been unfolding since the morning commute. The Christian Science Plaza, a sprawling site off Massachusetts […]

John Gioioso – Fresenius Medical Care North America

Ah, the cubicle. John Gioioso knows the model well: A square measuring a few feet by a few feet. Just enough room for a desk a computer and files. No natural light to speak of and identical row after identical row. Corporate America is made of these. But the future isn’t, at least not for […]

Aurora Electric Inc.

A native Midwesterner who spent the early part of her working life in Arizona, Veronica Rose has come to love New York City, where her company has become one of the most reliable electrical contractors in the five boroughs. That said, as one of the first two female master electricians in the city, she acknowledges […]
