As he and a local quarry owner drove through the arid Turkish interior, still marveling at the pistachios and fresh juice from a recent roadside stop, Joe MacIsaac gazed out at the mountains and smiled. For thousands of years, this region had produced some of the finest natural stone in the world. That week it […]

Steel Nation

Mark Caskey remembers the day the lightbulb first went off. Halfway up the driveway, he noticed the flimsy metal construction of a building that processes natural gas for distribution. Inside, a lack of insulation was causing fans to blast an airplane-engine din clear through the walls and into the homes just beyond the ridge. In […]

Don Watson – Merck

While outfitting a new research lab in Rahway, New Jersey, the facilities team encountered somewhat of an eye-opener. It seemed the new, young talent at Merck’s more than 100-year-old campus, wanted to feel connected to the pharmaceutical giant’s colorful history—through black-and-white photos. Since 1891, Merck researchers had helped find new ways to treat and prevent […]

Named after one of New Jersey’s foremost engineers, Rowan University in the southwest community of Glassboro might have felt it was under extra pressure a few years ago when paperwork issues threatened to delay construction of its new department of engineering.

Ever detail- and outcome-oriented, Paul Donhauser considers himself the Bill Belichick of corporate real estate management, although he may be more charismatic than the New England Patriots’ famously taciturn coach. He’s also much less secretive about his game plan. Donhauser might even like to see other companies, including competitors, borrowing from the winning strategy he […]

The cartoonist Scott Adams might never know what a savior he’s been to office workers in all four corners of the globe. For it was Adams, whose own glum experiences in cubicles inspired him to conceive “Dilbert” in 1989, and what a chord it struck with the swirling mass of dispirited humanity toiling away in […]

The Fernandes brothers, Joe, David, Julio and Victor stood around one another at a family party in New Bedford, Connecticut, when it hit them—the idea that would change their lives.

Lisa Landis – The Woda Group

Est. reading time: 4 mins

It’s no statue, but it does have a connection to the past. The 86,000-square-foot, six-story brick structure was built in the 1890s and has been used as a grocery store, biscuit factory, wool exporter and warehouse. And there’s the most recent use: Nothing at all. For years, the structure stood vacant. Then, in 2015, the […]
