Some of our intern architects went on a site visit, led by James Evrard, RA, NCARB, to learn the progress of our Pinnacle V project in Leawood, Kansas. The steel is fully erect, masonry has begun and is about 40% complete. Windows and glazing, frames and glass are currently going in. The roof work is still in progress and the stairs have been put in place. The building will be enclosed mid-May, tenant improvements will start in June, and the project is estimated to be completed by September. Interns will receive Intern Development Program (IDP) hours through the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) for Construction Phase: Observation.
The new headquarters at College and Nall in Overland Park, Kansas is now LEED Certified. The building was designed to meet the sustainable requirements through the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). Its features include erosion and sedimentation control, drip irrigation, energy management systems, on-site shower facilities, and preferred parking for low-emitting and fuel-efficient vehicles.

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!

Friday was an exciting night for our Interiors Department, as they were awarded ‘Exceptional Use of Color’ for their design at International Interior Design Association (IIDA) Mid-America Chapter’s Color + Couture. Teamed with Koroseal, they were assigned vinyl wall covering which made up the majority of the dress. The theme this year was “A Radiant Collection” based on the 2014 Pantone Color of the Year. Congratulations to all the winners!
