When I think of thought leadership, I think of the words of Albert Einstein. He once said, “Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.” I believe this to be true, as thought leadership is not about being the best. Instead, it is about tapping into the experience, knowledge, and talents of others to offer something meaningful. In other words, thought leadership is about making a difference.
At times like these, I’m reminded of the critical role healthcare facilities play in caring for people. That said, let’s all take a moment to not only recognize National Healthcare Facilities and Engineering Week, but to also reflect on all you do for your patients, their families, staff, and administrators on good days and bad. It’s truly remarkable.
Companies like Core Spaces, a national student-housing developer, have taken purpose-built student housing to a completely different level.
At Findorff, we are passionate about sustainability. While Earth Day is a great time to refocus our attention on the natural assets surrounding us, it is also important that this focus extends beyond this one day each year. As part of Findorff’s ongoing innovative initiatives, a dedicated group of sustainability leaders launched Findorff Footprint, an in-house resource that tracks the implementation of various sustainability goals.
This week we celebrate National Women in Construction Week. I believe this is such an opportune time to raise awareness, as well as increase the support of and encourage women in the construction industry. It’s a field I love!
At Findorff, we focus on the things that matter to our projects’ success – purpose, value, quality, scope and price. To do this successfully, we continuously advance the way we work, by blending the processes of planning, constructing, and completing projects skillfully (Engineer) with our intelligence, resourcefulness, and inventiveness (Ingenuity).
Take a moment this week to reflect on all you do for your patients, care givers, staff and administrators. It’s truly inspirational.

Findorff is excited to announce the recent completion of its latest construction endeavor, UW Health at the American Center. Findorff’s relationship with UW Health dates back to the early 1970s when Findorff built the Clinical Sciences Center (CSC), more commonly referred to as the UW Hospital on Highland Ave. In 2005, UW Health purchased a 42-acre parcel of land on Madison’s east side as part of its successive evolution. A decade later, a state-of-the-art facility stands epitomizing the spirit of innovation.
