Case Studies Architecture & Design

OPX PLLC

“People are our biggest asset.” As the founder and managing partner of OPX PLLC, a design consultancy in Washington D.C., Steve Polo has heard his clients say that sentence countless times. “If that’s true,” Polo says, “then as a company you need to make sure you show it.” Ten years ago, while designing and renovating […]

Flood Panel LLC

With flood events on the rise in America, the federal government has overhauled once-stagnant regulations and insurance requirements, leaving general contractors, engineers and architects scrambling to understand this new age of flood protection. “They call us up panic-stricken saying they tried to get a certificate of occupancy, but were just told by an inspector that […]

DMR Architects

There’s a Nelson Mandela quote that reads, “There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.” In a way, Lloyd Rosenberg, founder of DMR Architects, has done just that. When Rosenberg founded DMR Architects in 1991, the first buildings he designed were schools. […]

DHK Architects

The Northeast takes understandable pride in its heritage, but the transportation facilities may seem to be from another era. Hence, the need to preserve the former while updating the latter, and that’s a task often entrusted to Arnold “Mickey” Krockmalnic, one of three principals at DHK Architects in Boston and the point man for transportation […]

Custom Decorators Inc.

With every window, there’s an opportunity. An opportunity to save on heat and air conditioning. To enhance the aesthetics of the house, apartment, condo or commercial building. To let the sunshine in or to keep the drafts out. Even to control that window’s covering from afar using an app. And there’s an opportunity for someone […]

Commonwealth Architects

When it came to going green while redesigning one of the quintessential buildings in downtown Richmond, Virginia, Commonwealth Architects was part of a team that didn’t quite go for the gold but won it anyway. To be sure, Commonwealth Architects and its project partners, including the Virginia Department of General Services (DGS), Sustainable Design Consulting, […]

//3877

The scene opens on a typical Tuesday afternoon at //3877, a design and architecture firm in Washington, D.C. Inside the office—a wide open space with large colorful graffiti murals painted on the high-ceilinged grey walls—a few employees from partners to intern architects are dressed in running shoes and shorts, ready for the weekly office run […]

Acorn Sign Graphics

First impressions can be lasting, and when the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources [DENR] hoped to leave a good one, its general contractor, Brasfield & Gorrie, selected Acorn Sign Graphics to provide main entrance and interior signs for the DENR Raleigh headquarters. With distinct topography on a large 3D map beneath the […]

The Concession Residences

Almost 50 years ago, Jack Nicklaus, widely considered one of the best-ever golfers, conceded the final putt in the 1969 Ryder Cup, a biennial men’s golf competition between Europe and the United States, to British competitor Tony Jacklin. The move, known as “the concession,” meant that Jacklin didn’t have to risk the final putt, which […]

SilverLining Interiors Inc.

In 1963 Josh Wiener’s parents—both dance instructors—bought a fixer-upper, Manhattan townhouse in what was then a bad neighborhood: 91st Street between Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues. Wiener grew up helping his dad repair that townhouse. At 6 years old, he was sorting nails. At 11, he was mixing plaster and rebuilding walls. Now, 53 years later, […]

Testimonials

I was contacted as a nominee for the Greenbuild Editor’s Choice 2016 recognition and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Working with US Builders Review has been a blessing for my company. Erica Berry took an awesome interview in the initial call as she gathered data for the article. She was concerned about how we became us, and she made me feel important by listening and taking notes. Then there is Ian Nichols who made me feel so comfortable in sharing my story, and Molly Shaw who interviewed me as well, as she was getting ready to create an awesome article about my company -- and I must say she nailed it on the first run! What a pleasure it has been to work with everyone. This feature on Container Homes USA will help me push the company into the forefront at the Greenbuild Expo 2016.
— Derrick C. W. Childs, Director Construction & Design, Container Homes USA
The process was simple: we were provided questions that the writers wanted to discuss, we were interviewed, and then we got to see a few drafts before the final version went to print. Given the quality of this publication, on behalf of Giroux, I can assure everyone that all of my partners would be happy to participate in similar articles in the future.
— Barbara Kotsos, Director of Marketing & PR, Giroux Glass
Thank you all your efforts in putting together such a great article about our company in US Builders Review. DH Construction appreciates the professional manner in which your team worked with us to achieve the stateside exposure we were after; especially taking the time to get all of the facts correct. In short, the article was extremely well put together and we have already received a great deal of feedback, interest, and compliments as a result of the piece. Once again, we appreciate all the effort, and without a doubt, we will not hesitate to work with your organization again in the future.

Kyle Gahm was instrumental in coordinating this project from beginning to end. He was always available and a pleasure to work with. It would be a pleasure to work with Kyle down the road. Bill Keaton was very impressive in raising money from advertising which resulted in ASE getting the cover story, so thank you Bill. Lia Prysunka and Jeanee Dudley are both very impressive individuals who deserve a lot of credit for this featured piece. They were both very patient and accepting of any changes we suggested. The format, quality, and resolution was awesome. To sum it all up: Our upper management, who never have been high on PR and things of this nature said that it was "absolutely fantastic" and were blown away. They now are requesting multiple copies of the full magazine and are very proud of the work you all put in. Thanks again.

It was an absolute pleasure to work with the writers and editorial team at TrueLine Publishing for our recent article in US Builders Review. From the start of the project, it was apparent that everyone involved was very concerned with accuracy and getting the facts right. They were also very conscientious about soliciting our feedback and ensuring that we were happy with the content and with the manner in which Giroux Glass was described in the finalized piece.
— Barbara Kotsos, Director of Marketing & PR, Giroux Glass
I was contacted by the company to write a review on my business. They handled the process very efficient and professional. The pictures came out great and the article was perfect. I am very happy with their work.
— Kirt McGhee, Owner, K4M Construction
What a great team US Builders has put in place! Having worked with Victor Martins a few years back, I was pleasantly surprised that he remembered our experience and contacted us again about an updated article. Not only did Victor brainstorm with me about content that would resonate with readers, but he assigned an excellent writer, Molly Shaw, to our account. Her interview with my client, Bardi Heating Cooling & Plumbing, was professional and succinct; as was her writing style. We had very few edits and were pleased not only with the article, but how well it was enhanced by color photos. Much appreciated!
— Karen Bird, Owner of Strategic Marketing Services, Bardi Heating Cooling & Plumbing
