HCM Graduate Students

All of us here at HCM wanted to take a moment to acknowledge two of our employees as they take big steps in their education.

Firstly, Andy Smeby began his last year of graduate schooling at the University of Minnesota. We are excited for Andy to finish up and look forward to seeing the work that he produces. We want to wish Andy a good final year, and offer our support as he pushes towards the finish line.

Also, Lane Madich, who has been working with us for the past year, has started his graduate education at the University of Oregon in Portland. We have enjoyed Lane’s unique personality, hard work and humor at the office. He is truly irreplaceable and we wish him the best of luck and well wishes from all of us here at HCM.

Congrats to both graduate students!

MN SNAP

In early 2015, HCM Architects began collaborating with the local non-profit MN Spay Neuter Assistance Program to design a new Headquarter facility for their Surgical Team and Staff. A little over a year later, their 11,000 square foot building has been transformed into a highly functional Surgical Suite with space to house the MN SNAP Mobile Surgical Unit, along with their entire support staff. Thanks to everyone who helped make this project a success! (Completed construction photos to come.)

This past weekend at the Beer Dabbler, 12welve Eyes brewing announced their impending arrival on the St. Paul brewing scene.

12welve Eyes, a crew of three lifelong friends with glasses, signed with HCM to design their tap room, brew house combination in the basement of the historic Pioneer Endicott Building in late June.

Looking for a different brewery experience focusing on a lounge atmosphere, the garden level space in the building instantly brings to mind thoughts of Cheers, but their style is anything but the conventional drinking establishment.

These three friends have a brewing ethos that reflects their own unique and quirky style as well. HCM is excited to work with this new group of entrepreneurs to help them realize their dream of being brewers and tap room operators in St. Paul, doing it their way.
