Foth & Van Dyke, LLC New Corporate Office (De Pere, WI)

We are thrilled to announce that construction is winding down on the new Foth & Van Dyke corporate office project, which is scheduled for completion by September 16th (Foth is planning for an early December ribbon-cutting ceremony). For more information about the project, including renderings and in-progress photos, please click here.

Miron’s Project Manager, Craig Michels, explained that working with an engineering firm as a client has kept the project team on its toes. Since engineers are extremely detail-oriented by nature, our team (including Project Superintendent Marv Hazlett and the design team at Performa) understood the vital nature of being detail-oriented. While there isn’t a structured quality control program for this project, throughout construction team members have continuously asked the question, “Why are we doing it this way?” The team wanted to ensure that they are presenting the customer with the best product possible and if a detail doesn’t make complete sense or if there is a better way to do something, they ask the question and make adjustments to ensure both the longevity of the building and a satisfied customer.

10 Buildings that Changed America

It’s easy to take the American architectural cannon for granted. These are the structures that loom large, turning points in architectural history that also have a fixed place in pop culture. But how often does the public stop to consider why these well-known monuments were once revolutionary or reflect on how they shaped American culture?

Possible Tax Deduction –
Energy Efficient Commercial Buildings

Tax deductions are available for commercial building systems “placed in service” between January 1, 2006 and December 31, 2013.  A tax deduction of up to $1.80 per square foot is available to owners or designers of new or existing commercial buildings that save at least 50% of the heating and cooling energy of a building that meets ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2001. Partial deductions of up to $.60 per square foot can be taken for measures affecting any one of three building systems: the building envelope, lighting, or heating & cooling systems.

The Top of the World is Green

It can be a long wait to get to the top of the Empire State Building. It’s also pretty pricey. But what’s a family road trip to New York City if you don’t play tourist? At least I know that the monstrous fee we paid for four of us to ascend 1,050 feet to floor 86 is, in fact, going to good use! This is what we learned twisting and turning our way through the admissions line, which also doubles as a multi-million dollar Sustainability Exhibit. (Over 3.5 million people visit the ESB every year. Can you say captive audience?)
