Rey Black – The Howard Hughes Corporation

Though her stamp was already on much of modern Manhattan, Rey Black still wanted to do more when she brought her architectural skillset to The Howard Hughes Corporation in 2018. “I had built so much, but never a pier,” she tells Blueprint in August. “We were pulling out old piles and driving in new ones […]

Robert Jones – Methacton School District

Robert Jones feels the impact of his work every day. While a construction crew builds the new Arrowhead Elementary School, students are eagerly watching next door. The school’s principal tells Jones that kids line the playground fence during recess as heavy machinery and people in hardhats dig holes and put up the new structure. Jones, […]

Robert Stiers – White Plains Hospital

When White Plains Hospital opens its new Center for Advanced Medicine & Surgery in summer 2021, it will begin another “decanting” process, continuing its multi-year transformation of how the hospital, north of New York City, treats Westchester County residents, says Robert Stiers. “Decanting” as in the care provided at the new center will draw outpatients […]

Richard Stone – UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital

Versatility may be just what the doctors ordered. Literally. So says the man in charge of support services and construction administration at an upstate New York hospital that’s immersed in an ambitious multiphase redesign and expansion. Planning for upgrades to UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital commenced in 2015, with the hammers finally ringing three years later. […]

Ray Houle – New England Finish Systems

It’s a monumental undertaking for drywall and finishing company New England Finish Systems and President Ray Houle is wishing that circumstances would allow him to dispatch even more manpower to the company’s newest endeavor. One of 14 specialty subcontracting divisions of Marquis Management, NEFS originally made its mark completing high-end tenant fit outs. However, Houle […]

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 […]

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 […]

Richard A. Yeager – University of Massachusetts-Amherst

There’s got to be some more “there-there.” Richard A. Yeager laments the phrase, but concedes its wisdom. Especially in his role of the past year as director for campus planning at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. While he’s quick to acknowledge the more than $1.5 billion of capital improvements and new buildings over the past 15 […]

Robert Thompson – Anne Arundel Medical Center

It’s a disturbing but realistic analogy that Robert Thompson cites. Stringent aviation rules and regulations notwithstanding, commercial airliners crash, however infrequently. And should it be found that the company was cutting corners on maintenance, the boss had better expect repercussions. Now let’s look at hospitals, says Thompson, who’s fashioned a long and productive career as […]
