Although it is the oldest public university in Texas, the reach of Texas A&M University has not spread to every corner of its state. But now, the university is growing with its Texas A&M-Central Texas campus project in Killeen, Texas. At the 2010 groundbreaking, System Board of Regents Chancellor Morris Foster said the campus would benefit many in the region. ”We really have the opportunity with this new university to educate people [who before] really haven’t been able to travel the distances needed,” he said. 

There are not many firms that get the opportunity to qualify to work on prominent projects like the new World Trade Center. But, by having a strong project portfolio and the required bonding capacity, A&A Industrial Piping Inc. has qualified, according to General Manager William Albanese. The Fairfield, N.J.-based mechanical contractor specializes in HVAC installations and process and utility piping services. A longtime veteran of the industry, Albanese co-founded A&A Industrial 21 years ago.

When Dunlap Community Unit School District 323 in Dunlap, Ill., has needed to build or expand its schools over the past decade, it has looked to one construction manager to meet its needs. Dunlap’s newest school, Hickory Grove Elementary, is its fifth construction project since 2004 to be led by Mangieri Companies Inc. of Peoria, Ill.

Since 1897, Kraus-Anderson has literally been breaking new ground. The company brings a great deal of experience to many sectors of the construction market, one of which is education. The company’s use of a collaborative and transparent project delivery process and sustainable building practices has helped it successfully complete hundreds of K-12 education projects to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars during the past 20-plus years. 

From the ashes of financial turmoil and public healthcare crisis arises a new and improved hospital determined to raise the bar on healthcare. When the new Martin Luther King Jr. Medical Center opens in late 2013, the hospital will deliver on its promise to provide quality healthcare services to disadvantaged individuals in the Compton, Lynwood and Watts neighborhoods of Los Angeles County.

The experiments conducted by researchers at the Cleveland Clinic have the potential to save lives, so there was no room for experimenting when it came to selecting the team to build its new laboratory building. The Cleveland Clinic selected Cleveland-based Donley’s to serve as the construction manager on the project.

For an organization like Danis Building Construction Co., which has as much experience with healthcare projects as almost any company, building another medical center might seem like a run-of-the-mill operation. But according to Jim Albertson, project director, the company attempts to always put its best foot forward because it has generated repeat business with large hospital networks. Such is the case with its work on the new Indu and Raj Soin Medical Center located in Beavercreek, Ohio.

As part of a massive bond measure that was passed to improve schools in the West Contra Costa Unified School District, Wright Contracting Inc. is building $62.5 million worth of improvements to De Anza High School in Richmond, Calif. This is the first project the Santa Rosa, Calif.-based contractor has built for the school district, Superintendent Dan Hannan says. Construction began in May 2010 and is expected to be completed by July 2012.
