Apple Store Upgrades Near You

You may have noticed your local Apple store in the midst of a renovation. Some classic stores typically built up until 2014 will see the replacement of Genius Bars with new video walls and updated seating. Forum seating will usher in the “community” feel they have perfected in more recent roll-outs and accommodate more in-store education programs. The video wall addition at the Ala Moana Center, HI location was recently completed by Dickinson Cameron. The open-store remodel also included new tile flooring and Fetzer seating (amongst other work) and occurred over a span of 9 weeks. Mahalo Nui Loa Team!

Meet James Mather!

If you don’t know James, you are missing out! James Mather joined Dickinson Cameron in 2012 and serves as a Project Executive for some of our most important clients, such as Apple and Chanel. James’ energetic passion for innovative building and construction management systems stems from a long lineage of family builders. A third-generation carpenter and superintendent by trade running large crews for multifamily, low rise, hospitality, skilled healthcare, restaurants, public works, in-line and of course luxury retail. With over 35 years of diverse construction experience, James’ previous role as a Superintendent, Senior Project Manager and VP of Operations provides DCC teams with a superior coach and mentor.

When asked what one of his proudest career moments is, he said “I created and managed a 24-hour (6) shift construction schedule with two of our Superintendents. The goal being delivery on our commitment to a (3) day store closing versus several weeks of night work. Men, materials, crews and premanufactured items started work every 4 hours. The build felt like a rock and roll orchestra on fast forward and finished with a happy client and satisfied operations team.”

We are glad to have James on our team and are looking forward to celebrating his 7-year Anniversary at DCC next month. In his time off, James enjoys drag racing his diesel truck, innovating, photography and spending time with his best friend and wife, Tara.
