Jacob Linhart – Carondelet Health Network

There are many ways to prepare for the unexpected, and Jacob Linhart has made them part of his job as market director of facilities operations and construction for the Carondelet Health Network. Linhart won’t claim he foresaw the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic in spring 2020. However, his background in construction, heating, ventilation and air […]

Jessie Patrick – Owasso Public Schools

Feminine, but with a fierce side. This is how Jessie Patrick describes herself. A diminutive and lithe ballerina by avocation and a school district’s construction director by vocation, her high heels just might be heard clicking on a concrete foundation. Or even on a roof. “I’ve heard I’m a lot more involved in being on-site […]

Jose Morales – FlashParking

The equation may appear simple when designing a new parking garage. But while it’s still about how many spaces are needed and how traffic flows inside, 21st century variables are now part of the math. As Jose Morales of FlashParking notes, even the basic steps of getting a time-stamped ticket from a dispenser and then […]

John Kluber – Halff Associates

The complex sprawls out across 300 acres of grasslands in north Texas; a center of research and learning in computer science, agriculture and microbiology. In order to continue its cutting-edge work, however, the University of North Texas Discovery Park needs some retrofits and upgrades. It also needs to be made more efficient in both its […]

Jeff Barber – Olympus Property

Whether a painting project in Tennessee, new flooring in Tampa or a pool in Fort Worth, Jeff Barber needs to see it, walk around it and touch it. As the director of construction for Olympus Property, Barber wants to experience any job he’s overseeing. He travels often and he travels light, an approach that’s imbued […]

Jordan Wallace – 6S Real Estate Development

For Jordan Wallace, the construction business is as much about building relationships as it is setting concrete and steel beams. Not that 6S Real Estate Development hasn’t done plenty of the latter over the last several years. From helping retailers expand across the country to building multifamily housing in Texas that accentuates both community and […]

Jack Martin – JBI Electrical Systems

In sports, as athletes approach retirement, they sometimes graciously help train the players who will replace them, giving them the benefit of their experience even as their physical skills have eroded. Jack Martin, who founded JBI Electrical Systems in Fort Worth, Texas, 30 years ago, is taking the same approach, even if with skills still […]

Jeff Smith & Steven Chandler – HDF | Harwood International

At first sight, the building doesn’t seem real. From certain angles it looks downright precarious, like a haphazard stack of magazines—if that stack were seven stories high and made of glass and steel. It shouldn’t work, but it does. And to eye-popping effect: Owing to its hypermodern design, each floor twisting above the next by […]

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, […]
