Chris Burke – Riverside Community Care

While the COVID-19 pandemic has made people worry about their physical health, it’s also highlighted the importance of caring for mental wellbeing. With people stuck at home, cut off from friends and family, and sometimes their jobs, four in 10 adults have reported symptoms of anxiety or depression during the pandemic, compared to one in […]

Chris Costa – Warby Parker

They’re among the few items you wear on your face, and that makes buying glasses a big decision. You want to be sure they look good and fit right, and that’s easier to do if the glasses shop is a pleasant place to be. As the director of construction for Warby Parker, Chris Costa ensures […]

Clark Lowe – DLC Management

Everyone in Frederick, Maryland, knew the local eyesore—the massive Kmart that sat empty for two years. The parking lot was vacant, save for a plastic bag wafting across like a tumbleweed on the prairie. Community expectations were low for the property’s redevelopment—especially during a pandemic. But Clark Lowe, DLC Management’s director of construction and a […]

Chuck Corneau – Engineered Materials Solutions

By all appearances, when Chuck Corneau chatted with Blueprint in March, he was taking time from a Florida vacation. And though he had escaped a New England winter for some sunshine, when he needed to wrap up the call, it was not for a round of golf or a walk on the beach. Instead, he […]

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 […]

Carolyn McDonough – The University of Maine System

On entering the state-of-the-art academic building, students will encounter an expansive and bright Welcome Center, STEM Outreach Center, café and collaborative commons. From there, they’ll have access to multi-use classrooms, research areas, teaching labs, conference rooms and offices—all part of the three-story, 107,000-square-foot brick and glass structure. The focal point of the facility, though, will […]

Caitlin Summers – MOM’s Organic Market

This grocery chain’s latest opening had some curve balls thrown its way. COVID-19 has had such effects on construction projects everywhere, but it wouldn’t unduly delay MOM’s Organic Market from expanding to Abington, Pennsylvania, this past Sept. 4. Oh, it took some pivoting, acknowledges Caitlin Summers, the new director of construction and facilities who oversaw […]

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 […]

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 […]

Chris Powers – Donnelly Construction

It’s simple, really: Donnelly Industries stands apart from its competitors in the world of general contracting because the company can self-perform any type of carpentry and can supplement with subcontractors when necessary. President Chris Powers explains: If a drywall contractor is falling behind on a given project, Donnelly can send in its own team to […]
