Happy Holidays!

After another successful year at HCM Architects, the Team gathered together last Saturday night for a lovely celebration at the new Christensen House for appetizers and drinks. We then enjoyed a brisk walk to the Collosal Cafe on Como Avenue for an amazing  four course feast followed by delicious treats by Jerry Hagen! Thank you to the Collosal Team for making the night unforgettable. Also, thank you everyone for making this year a huge success.  Happy Holidays and see you next year!

Anoka County Highway Department – Construction Update

Our Anoka County Highway Department project  is in the midst of construction, taking full advantage of our dry and mild winter weather!  Installation of precast panels, structural steel and built-up roofing have progressed with only minor delays, which keeps a smile on everyone’s face (well – most of the time).  Inserted below are images of various stages of construction thoughout the project, starting from early October 2011 to late January 2012.
