Mark Lockard – The School District of Osceola County SDOC

Up until the day Mark Lockard closed out his career in school facilities and construction management, he was still learning. That’s because there’s a lot to know, he says. In a school design and construction career spanning more than 20 years, he’s seen changes and advancements in technology used to save—and even produce and recoup—energy […]

Montay Parker – Emory Healthcare: Emory Wesley Woods Hospital

Working at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia, isn’t as exciting as the movies that depict viruses and undead patients wandering the halls. Just ask Montay Parker, who worked the overnight shift there after receiving his certificate in heating, ventilation and air conditioning from trade school. Disciplined from his military service, […]

Mike Clemmer – Nissan North America

Mike Clemmer likes to joke the most pressure he’s felt has been choosing which way to go when the rope drops at Magic Kingdom. But in truth, Clemmer, a Disney World fanatic, faced a much greater challenge last spring, when the COVID-19 pandemic shut down one of Nissan North America’s manufacturing plants months before the […]

Michael Zebrowski – Maxwell Group

Managing facilities that serve one of the populations most vulnerable to COVID-19 presents many challenges, from sanitation and vaccine distribution to combatting loneliness. So the vice president of facilities services for Maxwell Group wasted no time when the pandemic first hit in March 2020, quickly stockpiling personal protective equipment and cleaning supplies. Michael Zebrowski has […]

Miles Coggins and Matt Reese – Chicken Salad Chick

It’s not just customers who rave about Chicken Salad Chick as a healthier alternative to run-of-the-grill-and-fryer food. Landlords have also taken a liking to this Alabama-based hybrid of fast-casual and sit-down dining that commenced with franchising in 2012. That was just four years after its founding by Stacy Brown and her late husband, Kevin. Chicken […]

Michelle Higgins – AvidXchange

There was a 60,000-square-foot renovation project in Charlotte, North Carolina, a 5,000-square-foot build-out in Alabama, and several smaller renovations and upgrades at other sites across the country. All would provide AvidXchange with enough space as it designed and built a second facility in Charlotte over the next two years—a 200,000-square-foot space that would accommodate five […]

Mark Griffin – Broward College

Mark Griffin has a lot of history at Broward College. He prefers to talk about its future, though. “The people I work with are all kind of bored with my stories about what things used to be like in the early days of Broward College,” says Griffin an alumnus who’s now the school’s associate vice […]

Michael Coniglio – National Management Resources

Since opening its doors 189 years ago, Georgia’s LaGrange College has produced many memorable alums. There’s Dean W. Young, creator of the nationally-syndicated “Blondie” comic strip from the 1960s; Dwayne Shattuck, an Emmy-award winning producer of “Mad Men” and renowned novelist Terry Kay—awards and accolades abound. The other thing it’s produced: an annual utility bill […]

Mike White – North Point Hospitality

It was a three crane construction operation, requiring high-swinging maneuvers to set the columns and beams for a new 19-story Hampton Inn and Suites in Midtown Atlanta and Mike White had never seen anything like it before. There, on the tight city streets, massive derricks were being used to assemble and dismantle other cranes just […]

Mathes Brierre Architects

The National WWII Museum has effectively become the centerpiece of New Orleans—and it is one of the most extensive projects in the long history of Mathes Brierre Architects. It shows.
