Rockford understands the vital role the environment plays on the productivity, creativity, and wellness of a company. In the same way an open workspace encourages collaboration, artwork in the workplace can engage and inspire its team members. It is this kind of inspiration that transforms a blank wall into a beautiful mural and a building into a place with soul.
As business thought leaders, we have the potential to create built-in value with every interaction. Our goal in creating beautiful outcomes includes so much more than just the finished project.
Today, we’re interviewing Jim Reminga, Rockford’s Senior Vice President of Land and Master Planning. Jim has served the design needs of the real estate development community for more than four decades. He is especially skilled in creative and efficient site planning, and offers unique experience in the areas of public approvals, rezoning, site plan approval and variances.
Rachel Scott, Director of Development Services for Rockford’s Real Estate Development team says, “Rockford has a civic focus and a genuine interest in bettering its environment, and the fact that they stand for quality. I wanted to join a company that was best at what it does. Because I always try to learn from the best.”
Realizing that the construction industry has lagged behind other industries in attracting females to the workforce, Rockford has worked hard to successfully recruit and retain a great number of female team members including project coordinators, project managers, superintendents, and executive team leaders. Over the next few months, we’ll share thoughts and stories from some of our own female team members as we explore what it’s like to be a woman thriving in the construction industry. Today we start with insights from Rockford’s CFO, Julie Towner.
You can’t just build it; you need to program for it. The pros, the cons, and the solutions to the open office environment.
