  • Just Doing Our Job

    If we do our jobs well it’s our clients who really win. This season’s ASLA awards have given us a few more certificates for our walls, though, totaling 8 awards for 7 projects in 6 cities.

    • Every day we strive to make a difference in our communities, creating places that have a positive effect on people and our environment. If we do our job well, it’s our clients who win. Winning an award for this work just gives us a small assurance that we truly did our best and made the most out of the opportunity for the client and the community. That’s what it’s all about.

      So when we submitted our best work to our industry’s award programs this year and received EIGHT new certificates for our walls over the last few weeks, of course we were pretty stoked.  But we know who really won – our clients in the cities of Minneapolis, North Kansas City, Des Moines, Overland Park, Wichita and Kansas City.
