What was the most fun aspect of the project?
Mark / Pillars had a session in the building in the community room and I was there to help give a tour to that group. While I was there I saw someone from the police department come in and show off the space. The guy they touring came in and gave a big ‘Whoa’. It was really cool to see how proud the department is of the space.
What do you feel made the project successful?
Mark / A great project team. That includes the owners group, our team in the office, and really everyone involved. It was easy because we had clearly defined roles and clear decision makers.
How did you celebrate the Project of the Year Honor?
All / Champagne!
Mark / We went to Gilhouly’s – that’s a traditional hangout for us.
Mike / Helix buys tickets to anybody in the office that wants to go to Design Awards, so when we win it makes for a pretty exciting celebration!
Mark / JE Dunn, the contractor for the project, also sent over champagne and donuts the next week which gave us an opportunity to celebrate with our coworkers that couldn’t be at Design Awards.
Enormous thanks to Reeves, Mike, & Mark for chatting with us and sharing a bit of insight into this great project!
