Case Studies Design-Build

Missouri’s Design-Build Legislation

Construction isn’t known for being quiet. But over the last 25 years, a force has quietly swept the industry: design-build. In 1993, only three states allowed design-build, a construction method in which one team is tasked with both designing and constructing a project. Design-build presents an alternative to design-bid-build, in which one team designs a […]

Thompson-Arthur Paving and Construction

In an industry where speeding traffic, multi-ton machinery and exposure to extreme elements adds to the usual construction hazards, a company is known for its safety. In 2016, Thompson-Arthur Paving and Construction reached 4 million man-hours without a single lost-time incident; that is, over the course of about 10 years, the company didn’t have a […]

TW Constructors

When he was just 11-years-old, Weaver walked into the office of Clayco, Inc., a large design-build and construction firm in St. Louis, asking for work so he could earn money to help his family out. Little did he know, the man he spoke with was the owner, Robert Clark. For the next four years, Weaver […]

O’Brien Construction Company

For over half a century, O’Brien Construction Company has been an institution in Michigan—building everything from car dealerships and multi-family apartments to public schools and churches in Detroit and its surrounding communities. However, it is perhaps best known work done outside the commercial sphere. Since it was founded in 1962 by Eddie W. O’Brien, P.E., […]

J. Tortorella Swimming Pools Inc.

While studying marketing at the New York Institute of Technology, John Tortorella spent his summers cleaning and installing swimming pools on Long Island. At the time, it was just a way to pocket some extra cash. John says he had no plans to turn it into a career. In fact, when he graduated in 1981, […]

Neeser Construction

Although Neeser Construction, a design-build contractor headquartered in Anchorage, Alaska, has been building in northern Nevada since the late ‘90s, Business Development Manager Luke Hermann says he’s never experienced a construction boom as diversified as today’s. “Just recently there has been this influx of growth of major logos, like Tesla, Switch, eBay and Apple investing […]

CDS Mestel Construction Corp.

Security concerns being what they are, the airport experience isn’t for anyone easily exasperated or embarrassed. It entails removing shoes, sometimes showing multiple forms of identification, being subjected to more intimate probes if the walk-through machine detects something that’s likely harmless but still cause for suspicion, and having inspectors behind the scenes poring through your […]

Goodwin Brothers Construction Inc.

When it comes to wastewater infrastructure, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) gives the U.S. a D+. According to ASCE, 76 percent of the population relies on the nation’s 14,748 wastewater treatment plants, which it calls “the most basic and critical infrastructure systems for protecting public health and the environment.” That wastewater infrastructure is […]

Paige Industrial Services Inc.

As the general contracting company’s history shows, Paige Industrial Services Inc. is not afraid to try something new. When President Devroux Paige founded the company in 1990, it was a residential cleaning services company called Paige Cleaning Services. After a few years, the Washington D.C.-based company evolved into a commercial and industrial janitorial services provider. […]

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
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

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.

Kyle and his team were very professional and patient in explaining their program to us. Their communications were clear and concise and did a great job of guiding us through the process of getting published in their magazine.
— Michael Henthorn, Owner, Henthorn Commercial Construction
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
