Case Studies Design-Build

The Harlan Company

John Harlan, president of The Harlan Company, wasn’t planning on making a green building—or rather, the greenest building. But in 2015, he and others at the company learned about a private school in Missouri that needed a remotely located classroom built to the highest environmental standards set by the Living Building Challenge (LBC). The company […]

Prodigy Construction

Before 2007, most general contractors self-performed at least a few different trades. This involved hiring a larger staff of skilled workers and giving them work through busy and lean periods. But after the financial crisis in 2008 killed projects and forced thousands of workers out of the industry, many contractors started subbing out almost all […]

Rustbelt Reclamation

Not many people would use the word contemporary to describe the Rust Belt. Once the industrial heartland of the United States, the region, which sprawls from upstate New York to the Great Lakes to northern West Virginia, is now associated with the decline of American manufacturing. As a Cleveland native, James “Deej” Lincoln grew up […]

Steve Anderson – Denco Dental Construction Inc.

As a general contractor in the Phoenix area, Steve Anderson tired of the bidding game around 20 years ago and identified an underserved niche that he would fill; that is, the building and remodeling of dental offices. “I saw how necessary it was to help dentists get their clinics off the ground,” he says. “There […]

Zarrilli Homes

After stumbling across an article about modular homes, third-generation homebuilder, Anthony Zarrilli, recalls showing it to his father. The elder Zarrilli scoffed, labeling modular houses cheap and flimsy. Zarrilli grew up learning the finer points of traditional building from his dad and remembers scouring the job site for loose nails as a five year-old. However, […]

Jett Builders Inc.

“The first good part about my story is that my father taught me how to work from a young age,” says Brandon Jett, owner of Jett Builders, a custom-home building and remodeling company in Tallahassee, Florida. When Jett was a kid, his father bought a piece of property outside of Tallahassee with two large tobacco […]

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 […]

Greenman-Pedersen Inc.

The developer of Spaulding Green, a 400-acre housing community in Clarence, New York, realized target buyers preferred homes built into hillsides with walk-out basements. The land being developed was essentially flat, though. To make the walk-out basements possible, Greenman-Pedersen Inc. (GPI) got creative and turned flat land into varied terrain with ponds, hills and elevated […]

Bullard

Wells Bullard loves to see something most people would never think twice about: construction crews wearing their hard hats while they eat lunch. For Wells, vice president of personal protective equipment manufacturer Bullard, that’s proof that the company’s hard hats aren’t uncomfortable. As Wells says, “personal protective equipment is only effective when it’s worn, and […]

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.

TrueLine Publishing was a delight to work with. They were extremely patient and worked diligently to get our article written and published. The team always responded in a timely manner and was courteous. I look forward to working with TrueLine Publishing in the future and will recommend them to other businesses.

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
The staff was very helpful and easy to work with while developing our story. They were always open to our ideas and provided us useful information to maximize our visibility using social media. We were certainly pleased with final article.

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.
