This 27,142-square-foot combination office/service center/warehouse incluces yard storage, a fueling island, and a communications tower. The office portion of the facility is designed in a manner similar to that of a custom home, with 2 x 6 frame walls and pre-engineered wood trusses. However, the finishes are commercial grade, with blown-in cellulose insulation and standing-seam metal roofs. Added touches, such as brick and cement board veneer and aluminum frame windows, give the building a more public and inviting appearance. The building is completely heated and cooled with a water-to-air geothermal system. The system is looped in a pond created on site as part of the project's water detention. The entire facility incorporates LED light fixtures and energy-saving appliances.

This bank branch building is actually more than a bank; it is composite bank/cafe. It is a two-story, steel-frame, slab-on-grade structure located in the historic downtown area of Marysville, Ohio. The design invokes late 19th century Main Street, with its brick and stone exterior, large storefront windows, and location close to the street. The two-story front lobby is a unique interpretation of a conventional banking hall, which seamlessly blends the functions of a cafe with more conventional banking functions. An open stairway connects the lobby with the overlooking second floor. On both floors, subtle changes in materials, ceiling height, and exterior views mark a gradual transition from public cafe in the front to the more intimate offices and meeting rooms in the back.

This extensive hotel renovation was completed while the hotel remained operational. The entire exterior shell of the 118,791-square-foot building was removed and replaced with steel studs, dense glass and Exterior Insulation Finish System (EIFS). The interior load bearing walls remained in place and new drywall and vinyl wall coverings were installed on them. Every guest room, guest bathroom, hallway and stairwell were stripped down to the bearing walls and refinished. In the guest bathrooms all the bathtubs, toilets and sinks were removed and replaced, and all guest room furniture, appliances, TV’s, artwork and beds were likewise replaced with new. The front entrance and drive through canopy were completely removed and a new canopy and front entrance was constructed.

The goal of this $2.9 million renovation project was to create attractive, clearly recognizable building entrances, improved circulation, a casual meeting space, and a new purpose for the building's rotunda (which had stood empty for nearly 30 years). Overall, 4,950 square feet of entrance, circulation, and rotunda were added to the existing structure, while an additional 6,550 square feet of existing space was also renovated.

This 15,433-square-foot assisted living complex in Stanley, North Dakota contains 14 apartments, five of which are two-bedroom units and nine are one-bedroom units. Each unit has a living area with a sloped ceiling and a bay window, and a kitchen with a dining area. During the same construction period, a new 3,000-square-foot Bethel Chapel was added. It accommodates seating for 50 people. The focal point of the chapel is the altar, which is surrounded by a beautiful stained-glass window designed by a local artist, with assistance from a local group. This addition also features a new boardroom that has been set up to also act as the chapel overflow via audio/video equipment, should the need arise to serve a large audience.
