Project Update: Transit Modernization 3

Complete…almost. We drove down to South Dakota to do a final walk-thru (punchlist) of the transit facility. It was cold and windy – as you will hear unfortunately in the video. The contractor was still installing some metal panels and other odds and ends so it was hard to generate a complete list of items to be corrected prior to the grand opening. Overall, I think it is looking pretty good and the client is happy. Can’t ask for much more then that! Take a look!

Project Update – Afton Home 4

Stopped by one of our residential projects to see how things were going. Good to see the painting crew that painted my house. Nice guys and they do a great job.

Designing a Skyway

I love the diversity of projects we are able to work on. We were asked to design a skyway bridge and associated stair/elevator tower. The skyway would connect a well known building with a parking ramp. One of the challenges was that the ramp will eventually be replaced and the adjacent open block will be developed… all may want to connect to the elevator tower. We had to try to design some flexibility within the stair tower that could work with different floor levels engaging it. Take a look at the video to see the design progress!

Glen Hills Park – Progress!

We are fortunate to be doing several projects for the county park system. Here is a video with our first project under construction. This one is important because it will set the aesthetic tone that other park projects will need to follow. Take a look!

Project Update – Afton Home 3

I did a quick site visit to a new home we have under construction. The home is framed and windows were being installed. It’s always fun to watch a design become reality.

Project Update: Margaret Park

Margaret Park is an urban park in St Paul, Minnesota. I was asked by the City of St Paul Parks and Recreation to participate in community meetings to help redevelop the park which needed some enhancements. Below is a video of my final walk through of a small toilet room building we designed.

Project Update – Utility Building 1

This is kind of an unusual project for us. It is a small utility building but we were brought on board because they needed it to have a ‘park-like’ aesthetic. The building is on park property in a residential area so a standard metal building wouldn’t be acceptable. Here is quick video of a recent site visit.

Project Update – Afton Home 2

The process continues! We start to refine the floor plans and begin looking at the exterior and interior concepts.
And, I thought I looked good in anything but I was reprimanded by my wife for wearing an old sweatshirt and mismatched teal t-shirt. I guess I should be grateful that she actually still looks at me!

Completed Project – Basement Remodel

Some friends of ours asked if we could come up with a concept to finish off their lower level. Its primary purpose would be for overflow entertaining and a place where the kids could hang out. We came up with some ideas and some basic drawings and they took it from there. I wanted to drop in and see how it turned out. Take a look!

Project Update: RCU Discover Center 3/16

Siding is going on, stonework is starting and Spring is in the air…and on the ground! What a mud-filled site. I thought I would do a quick update on the project. Take a look!

Project Update: RCU Discovery Center

Even though we have had highs in the below 0 degree range, the RCU Discovery Center at YMCA Camp St Croix moves forward! I feel for the crew as it is hard enough for me to have site meetings in a semi-heated construction trailer! The video below shows the progress. Keep checking back for more updates!
