Rosemann Kansas City's Project Manager, Michael Gaillard, had the opportunity to speak to three 2nd grade classes at the Pembroke Hill School in Kansas City on Veterans Day. It was a great opportunity to share his experiences with some very engaged and bright young people.
While in the United States Navy Michael served on the USS Vandegrift and learned the value of hard work and determination. He spent eight years serving our country, starting in 1992, as an engineer/fireman. Though Michael is no longer a fireman he still does a great job putting out fires here at Rosemann. Thank you Michael and all those who served this great country.
Alex Price, Rosemann St. Louis studio architect-intern and a resident of Downtown St. Louis, had the opportunity to work with the Downtown Neighborhood Association in St. Louis to design and create a rendering for a four-story mixed-use building in the Downtown West Neighborhood. The four-story building is designed as first floor retail, fronting the popular Washington Avenue, with three floors of apartments above and parking off the rear street. However, the simple design could easily be adapted for offices or other functions.
Leading Age Annual Meeting and Expo was held in Indy in 2016 – hence the “racing to Indy” racecar! Jarrett, Nancy and Kathy took
advantage of connecting with thousands of non-profit providers who share a passion and commitment to senior care, attending education sessions focusing on best practices as well as new ways to design and build – and living the Conference’s theme of BE THE DIFFERENCE. The EXPO hall offered further opportunities to meet and greet and find new materials and services for our clients.
The Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indy was a great venue with nearby hotels, restaurants and many museums. It was great to meet new people, explore how others are doing similar work, and expand our horizons.
