Jennifer Gonsalves – David Geffen School of Drama at Yale

On a crisp October day in 2018, Jennifer Gonsalves walked through Yale campus, the civil engineer in her appreciating century-old Gothic and neo-Georgian architecture. When she reached 222 York Street, Yale’s main theater, her gaze—like that of so many drama students—swept up the stone façade. Gonsalves continued her walk past the other eight buildings on […]

John Crompton – The Winsor School

When John Crompton led a lunch and learn session with students at The Winsor  School, he wasn’t sure if they’d be interested. He knew the science behind concrete would probably bore a group of students and expected to look into the audience and see yawns and glazed-over eyes. Instead, he saw a sea of raised […]

Jeff Dill – Party City Holdings Inc.

It enables balloons to fly and cools superconducting magnets in MRI units. And though it’s not advisable to inhale it, it also makes your voice sound funny if you do. That may be what your average reader knows about helium, but it wasn’t enough for Jeff Dill, vice president of facilities and energy management for Party City Holdings Inc. Because while it may not be a party without balloons, helium is part of a serious business. “What I […]

John Lembo – RiverSpring Living

John Lembo doesn’t live on the 32-acre campus of the Hebrew Home at Riverdale in New York City, but as vice president for facilities management for its parent organization, RiverSpring Living, he says it feels like home. At RiverSpring Living, Lembo is stewarding two major capital projects designed to provide residents new levels of comfort […]

Jevan Sean Seepaul – Northwell Health

When the COVID-19 pandemic arrived, Jevan Sean Seepaul had no choice. As the engineer managing the facilities management department for one of New York City and Long Island’s largest healthcare providers, Seepaul kept the hospital system functioning. With more than 74,000 employees and 23 hospitals across Westchester County, Staten Island, Queens and Long Island, Northwell […]

Jack Rallo – South Orangetown Central School District

No one, especially since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, wants to breathe other people’s air. This can be hard to prevent in schools, though, where getting fresh air is usually only possible during gym class or recess. Jack Rallo is changing this by bringing the outside air in. As the director of facilities for […]

Jim Sheeley – Pulaski Central School District

When Jim Sheeley was a student at Pulaski Central School District, he never thought about how the buildings were repaired and maintained. Now it’s all he thinks about. As the director of facilities at his alma mater, Sheeley knows the schools more intimately than some. After all, he spent 13 years walking their halls and […]

Jeremy Smith – Capital District Transportation Authority

It’s not a Japanese bullet train, but employees at the Capital District Transit Authority are proud of upstate New York’s second Bus Rapid Transit line that hit the road last winter with a fleet of shiny blue and silver buses moving riders around Albany and surrounding communities. Known as the River Corridor Bus Rapid Transit […]

Joshua Roney – Sodexo

It was not a job requiring the nuclear physics Joshua Roney had learned in the U.S. Navy and the civilian nuclear energy industry. But while he wasn’t splitting atoms, he was certainly splitting duties, work shifts and even floors as he oversaw construction of a new behavioral health unit at a hospital in McKees Rocks, […]

John Yodice – Compass Group

How eye-opening it was around a decade ago when John Yodice and his wife visited the colleges their two children attended. Among other developments, the dining halls seemed the antithesis of where he had eaten his meals as an Iona College student during the early 1990s. “Back then my choices were take it or leave […]
