Est. reading time: 5 mins

How much has changed at Bentek since Matt Olson began directing facilities and for the San Jose-headquartered specialty manufacturer in August 2021?  “We’ve gone from having lots of extra space to being completely out of space,” he tells Blueprint in May. “We’ve been installing new machines and ramping up production.”  It’s no wonder this massive […]

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Compared to other projects Mark Seale has guided for Baker Hughes as North American real estate project leader, building out its new headquarters almost seems mundane. Creating 129,000 square feet of office space on five floors in an existing building in Houston’s energy corridor does require “taking it down to slab and building it back,” […]

There’s no avoiding the risk of infection at any hospital. But there are ways of mitigating it. So Mat Bradley emphasizes while going about his responsibilities as facilities director at 174-bed Titus Regional Medical Center in the Northeast Texas community of Mount Pleasant.

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Using a scientific approach known as evidence-based design, businesses—and particularly hospitals and health centers—can create interiors that improve the health of their clients’ workforce through better design. That’s been the focus of CareATC. Since 2000, the company has helped employers […]

Michael Rasmussen – Goose Creek CISD

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Overseeing grounds and maintenance at a small Texas school district had its moments for Michael Rasmussen. There was always something to keep him humble and committed. “Places like that, you’ve got to learn a lot about everything,” he tells Blueprint in early January. “How to run a wastewater plant, how to drive a school bus, […]

Mel Smith – Torchy’s Tacos

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Chain, casual dining restaurants aren’t known for creativity, but that can be part of their attraction. Doesn’t matter if the customer is in Portland East or Portland West, Detroit or Dallas. Most any branded restaurant looks alike with an identical menu and meals. It’s a business model due for some spicing up, which is what […]

Max Wolf — DayRise Residential LLC

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Today, these concepts are at the core of the multifamily industry in Texas—and Wolf is right in the thick of it. Since joining the Houston-based DayRise Residential LLC two years ago, Wolf, […]

Est. reading time: 5 mins

When Jerry Merriman first got word that Merriman Anderson Architects (MAA) had been awarded a contract to restore the iconic Statler Hotel—a building which his firm had already been working on for close to a decade—he knew his firm would be resurrecting a once-proud downtown Dallas treasure. Actually finding treasure? That was never part of […]

Moore Erection

Est. reading time: 4 mins

The steel is all but covered up now, except for a few stairway rails and partially exposed beams. But it’s there, sturdy as your body’s bones, buttressing the brick and wood that give San Antonio’s Cornerstone Christian School its distinctly neoclassical form. Opened this past fall, the grades 2-12 school looks both lost in time […]
