Tyler Gonzalez Architects

When the city of Pasadena, California, or one of the nearby communities, tinkers with its zoning code or elects a new Planning Commission, principals Rob Tyler and Javier Gonzalez pay attention. The firm they co-founded more than 30 years ago, Tyler Gonzalez Architects, has a vested interest in reading the pulse of the community. Much […]

The Exterior Company

Few companies embrace the “work hard, play hard” mentality quite like The Exterior Company. Most of the year, The Exterior Company’s staff of 40 office personnel and 50 to 60 laborers, is spread around the East Coast, helping individuals and companies repair roofs, siding, windows and gutters after destructive storms. It’s hard work, and it […]

Tallahassee Builders Association

Far removed from the beaches and theme parks that define other locales, north Florida has its own amenities that attract some of the 1,000 folks who move to the Sunshine State daily. “It’s a beautiful place to live and raise your family,” says Lynne Edwards, executive officer of the Tallahassee Builders Association (TBA) and owner […]

The Harlan Company

John Harlan, president of The Harlan Company, wasn’t planning on making a green building—or rather, the greenest building.

The company […]

Tectonic Systems Inc.

The move, known as “the concession,” meant that Jacklin didn’t have to risk the final putt, which […]

The Dallas Arboretum Parking Garage – Rogers-O’Brien Construction

As the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden became more popular with the addition of the Rory Meyers Children’s Garden and other exhibits, the arboretum determined a new parking garage was necessary to accommodate the increasing number of visitors. For general contracting services on the project, Rogers-O’Brien (RO) Construction was commissioned to build the 460,000-square-foot, five-story […]

The Duffie Companies

Just as restaurants like Starbucks and Subway list the calories in their menu items, Shane Pollin predicts the building industry might one day list Energy Star ratings. That disclosure, he hopes, would get people to look at buildings differently. While it may sound farfetched, this isn’t the first time one of Pollin’s ideas has sounded […]

Trinity Design/Build

You know those beautiful old Mustangs burbling down the road in the summer? They look the same as they did decades ago, sometimes even better, but if you were to open the hoods, you’d find modern parts and other changes that make them more reliable. That’s the idea behind Alan Spruyt’s firm, Trinity Design/Build (TDB). […]
