For some, the idea of constructing a large facility in a tight time frame can seem impossible. But such a task is an area of specialty for Brinkmann Constructors, Project Manager Jason Marnin says. “We perform construction faster [than others],” he maintains.

After surviving the horrors of battle, U.S. soldiers deserve the best medical care that Veterans Affairs (VA) hospitals can give to them. And the James A. Haley Veterans’ Hospital (JAHVH) in Tampa, Fla., strives to do that daily with its state-of-the-art technology and its team of qualified practitioners.

The economy is booming in the city of Hillsboro, Ore. The fifth-largest city in the state is home to Intel Corp. and near the Beaverton, Ore., headquarters of Nike. “It is [a portion] of the Portland metro area that’s exploding,” Travis Baker says. With such strong growth, it was only a matter of time before other sectors needed to expand, too, including the local healthcare industry.

Students attending the second-largest university in the United States will soon have a high-quality off-campus living option.

Since President Obama signed the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), Auburn University has been awarded more than $82 million from the federal government. The Auburn, Ala.-based school has used $43 million of the funds, much of it spent on campus construction projects. The projects have improved and consolidated school functions and amenities all while creating jobs – a key purpose of the ARRA. 

A key reason why Overaa Construction has been in business for more than a century is because it abides by its values. The Richmond, Calif.-based contractor maintains its roots as hands-on craftsmen, which is evident in its ability to self-perform much of its work, including concrete. Although Overaa has evolved into a turnkey solutions provider, it remains old-fashioned where it matters the most. “We value blue-collar ethics,” President Christopher Manning asserts.
