This past week Hoefer Wysocki’s Kansas City office participated in our annual United Way Week for the eighth year in a row. Our theme this year was Superheroes & Villains and as a firm we raised more than $15,000 for people in need within the Kansas City community! United Way’s work is focused on the building blocks for a good life including education, income and health.
The office was divided up into four teams, all of which were themed and consisted of X-Men, Avengers, Justice League and Legion of Doom. Each day the teams competed against each other for points in activities over lunch and ended the week with a costume contest. Team Avengers had the most participation points of the week and team X-Men took the overall win with the highest amount of donations! Also, congratulations to Ryan Falk (aka Thor) and Erin Simmons (aka Mystique) for best male and female costumes!
Take a look at some of the photos below. We had a lot of fun and enjoyed contributing to a wonderful cause to benefit our community members in need!
The Air Force Postgraduate Dental School and Clinic recently received the Gold Award for Healthcare & Assisted Living at the 5th Annual Mid America Design Awards (MADA) sponsored by the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) Mid America Chapter. MADA is a biennial event and judging for the awards was based on innovation, functionality, implementation of design through use of materials, color, balance, light, and overall design intent. Congratulations to everyone who worked on the project!
Hoefer Wysocki is excited to announce our most recent project win – the Department of Veterans Affairs Health Care Center in Montgomery, Alabama! The new health care center will be 152,841 SF and feature a pharmacy, lab, radiology, eye clinic, dental clinic, and prosthetics. The design concept for the health care center was driven by the idea of creating a relaxing, healing environment for the patients and veterans’ families, while establishing an inspiring work atmosphere for the staff. The anticipated completion date for the building will be in 2015.
