Teri Chan Palomaki – Scientific Games

In some ways, it seemed as though casinos in the U.S. picked up right where they’d left off when the COVID-19 pandemic began to wane in the face of vaccinations. According to the American Gaming Association, first quarter revenues at casinos this year hit $11.1 billion, matching a high set in the third quarter of […]

Paul Gunderson – Resorts World Las Vegas

When the Las Vegas Strip reopened in June 2020 after a COVID-19 pause, celebrations were muted—at least for the first few weeks. Then, on a not-so-quite boulevard, Resorts World Las Vegas opened with a shower of fireworks and a traditional lion dance for luck and prosperity. According to Paul Gunderson, the resort’s vice president of […]

Dave Tompkins – Trinity

The company’s focus has turned to leasing the fourth and final phase of San Francisco’s largest multifamily residential project in nearly a century. Trinity Place, the $1 billion plus mixed-use multi-family development, has been under construction for the past 15 years. Projects like this take time—lots of it—especially in the City by the Bay, and […]

Scott Zellmer – Weber School District

Scott Zellmer doesn’t like to waste space. But, with gymnasiums, theaters and event halls, schools often have large areas that are only used some of the time. The director of facilities and operations at Weber School District is working on creative ways to address this. With a few new schools being built in the district, […]

Craig Cason and Dr. Donna Souder Hodge – CSU Pueblo

When Colorado State University Pueblo set a goal of being the state’s first net zero campus, it had more in mind than simply switching to LED lighting. Taking advantage of its sprawling campus, the university is building a 24-acre solar farm. The project, which is part of an energy performance contract, will save the university […]

Molly McLoughlin – Boulder Valley School District

In 2014, Boulder Valley School District passed the largest school bond in Colorado history. According to Molly McLoughlin, the district’s director of facilities, the historic funding led to upgrades for each of BVSD’s 56 schools, impacting over 30,000 students and 11 different communities across 500 square miles. As part of the education facilities master plan, […]

Larry Golden – The Howard Hughes Corp.

It’s not too far from the famous Las Vegas Strip, though Summerlin can feel like a much different place. Here one can find some quietude as well as liveliness in a very walkable and progressive master planned community on the outskirts of Sin City and into unincorporated Clark County. How the Spring Mountains and Red […]

Malcolm LeMay – Oregon State University College of Business

After upgrading HVAC systems to protect against COVID-19, Malcolm LeMay had to shut them down. The director of operations had been “bringing in as much air as possible” at Oregon State University College of Business from March to September of 2020 to limit the spread of the virus. Then, just before students returned for the […]

Angelo Cox – Inland Empire Health Plan

Even in the midst of summer, September looms. Schoolchildren have it in the back of their minds they play in the sunshine. By August, stores are offering back-to-school specials, and the nights may carry a small chill in the air. September is looming, as well, for the 2,500 employees at Inland Empire Health Plan in […]

David Wilson – Avanir Pharmaceuticals

When David Wilson was getting ready to graduate from Maine Maritime Academy, he went to sea for a mandatory six-month training regimen required of all students. Aside from wearing a uniform, sleeping in a bunk no wider than he was, and riding an onslaught of rolling waves, Wilson, an engineering student, would need to prove […]
