Lincoln Public Schools – Lincoln, NE
This facility is a partnership between the Lincoln Public Schools and YMCA of Lincoln. It will house the new Marilyn Moore Middle School and Copple Family YMCA, both to open in Spring 2017.
The middle school comprises 186,688 sf of the 243,291 sf facility. The school can serve 850 students, and will share some gyms and classrooms with the YMCA. A kiosk staffed by the YMCA will control access to the shared amenities.
The heart of the school consists of a two-story multipurpose room, which is flanked by the main entrance lobby, administration, media center, computer center, and amenities shared by all grades. The gym and classrooms shared with the YMCA are adjacent to the west of this area.
A three-story classroom wing to the east, furthest from the YMCA, utilizes the learning pod concept, with a floor for each grade. Each floor will feature general classrooms, science classrooms, special education classrooms, a flex classroom, computer lab, and teacher planning area. The rooms surround a commons area, with ample open space that can be used for collaborative learning.
The school and YMCA are under construction, on 24 acres of land surrounded on two sides by public park. The site offers ample room for expanding the school or YMCA.
Central Nebraska Regional Airport – Grand Island, NE
The Central Nebraska Regional Airport New Passenger Terminal project located in Grand Island, Nebraska began in October 2014 and was completed in February 2016. The new 34,000 square foot terminal, with two gates, is designed to accommodate 120,000 annual passengers. The terminal has open sightlines that provide travelers with a visual connection to all aspects of the airport experience. Many of the interior walls are glass to allow a line of vision from ticketing, security, restrooms, baggage claim, and exit lanes. The project was designed for growth and sustainability. Resembling the Platte River, the terrazzo flooring showcases the region’s character and helps guide passengers through the terminal. The project also added the airport’s first passenger boarding bridge and additional parking spaces. The exterior of the building features an aesthetically pleasing glu-lam canopy and the building’s saw-tooth roof allows natural light to stream in with minimal heat gain. New technology and modern finishes make the airport a convenient and ideal choice for passengers anywhere in the region.
University of Nebraska Lincoln – Lincoln, NE
The 4H building renovation includes a new conference center for Nebraska Innovation Campus with a 400 seat auditorium, conference break out rooms and ball room.

Exterior renovation of the building included tuck pointing and cleaning of the original brick masonry, window replacement that is respectful of the original design and new roofing.

The park features a meandering waterway with numerous crossings and serves as a flood control tool. It also features public art, three fountains, a large plaza, a scenic overlook, an amphitheater with seating for 200, a playground, and paved trails that connect to the city’s existing system. The plaza stretches over three blocks and offers amenities for festivals such as restrooms, seating, audio and power sources, recycling/trash receptacles, and lighting. Sustainable elements include water conserving nozzles and LED lights in fountains, photovoltaic cells to power lighting, and permeable pavers and Silva cells to manage runoff and support street-side trees.
