Jimmie Dale – Baker Brothers Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electrical

One client woke up in the early morning to find stagnant standing water in his home. Another had a “disgusting” experience involving her toilet continuously backing up into her shower. Then there was the seven-months-pregnant woman whose air conditioner conked out in the stifling heat of midsummer Texas. Needless to say, Baker Brothers Plumbing, Air […]

Jeff Kagey – LegacyTexas

Jeff Kagey’s path through the past, present and future of banking has been unorthodox. He began as a teller more than 30 years ago, but found his niche not behind a counter, but by helping design them—and the rest of a bank, too. Now the vice president of corporate real estate and facilities for LegacyTexas, […]

Kedrick Wright – San Antonio ISD

Back in the private sector after a productive five years with the Houston Housing Authority and one of that city’s independent school districts, Kedrick Wright figured he’d be around for a while as a project manager for the local affiliate of the civil engineering firm of Lockwood, Andrews & Newman. Career-wise, he’d have everything to […]

Brent Rutherford – Texas Health – Frisco

When it opens in December, standing eight stories above the grassy plains in Frisco, the new Texas Health Resources hospital will offer many tangible benefits to the community. There will be 73 new beds for patient care, with the potential for up to 230 beds. There will also be emergency medical services, a neonatal intensive care […]

David Workman – RoofConnect

In August 2019, when Hurricane Dorian was making its erratic, lumbering path toward land, RoofConnect contractors across the eastern U.S. were standing by, their eyes on the radar and Doppler. The storm didn’t ultimately have a dramatic impact on the Americas—but that was only in this one instance, says David Workman. “From hurricanes in Florida, […]

Andrew Smith – McRight-Smith Construction

They call her “FIFI,” and she’s just two-of-a-kind: Manufactured in 1944, she is one of the last flightworthy Boeing B-29 Superfortresses in the world. The giant flying museum—99 feet long with a 141-foot wing-span—has appeared in air shows all over North America, representing similar aircraft that flew in World War II and the Korean War, […]

Joel Kalmin – Legacy Community Health Services

Joel Kalmin of Legacy Community Health Services does not wear a stethoscope or take care of patients, but for the last 10 years as director of facilities design, he has worked with Legacy staff to build clinics that reflect and invigorate the communities they serve. As the largest nonprofit Federally Qualified Health Care Center, or […]

Joe Murray – ACT Construction

Let’s say you’re sitting in your corporate office in Illinois, but you want to check on one of your restaurants being built in Texas. You log in to your project manager software, and in a few clicks you have a live feed of the construction site: where workers are focused for the day; what materials […]

David Reynolds – University of North Texas

Five years ago, the Sack ‘N Save at the corner of Wilshire and Avenue C in Denton, Texas, looked like any mid-sized grocery store: meat and produce around the perimeter, aisle upon aisle of food and household wares in the middle, all of it illuminated by a battery of fluorescent lights. Should a former customer […]

Jill Pearsall – Texas Children’s Hospital

To most, the saying “giving 110 percent” is considered a positive one. For the folks at Texas Children’s Hospital, however, the idiom had taken on a slightly different meaning in the fall of 2013: The facility was consistently over capacity, and the impacts—on patients and physicians alike—were starting to take a toll. That November, leaders […]
