Each year AIA Kansas City partners with the Girl Scouts of NE Kansas and NW Missouri to put on Cookie Construction. This program is geared towards girls in 6th - 12th grade who are interested in exploring architecture or engineering. Rosemann and Associates partnered up with another local firm and was assigned 15 Girl Scouts. The mentors, who are also women architects, work with them once a month for six months. During these monthly meetings they discuss design, learn how to use Sketch-Up and go over construction documents. The theme this year for the build is “We are Girl Scouts, We Are Innovators” and the cookie box designs will be built and on display at Crown Center from March 4th-March 25th.
A special thanks to Erin McFarland, Mary Rogers, Stephanie Stone, and Marcia Trein for volunteering their time and energy to mentor the next
generation of architects.
This December, the Rosemann St. Louis Team was eager to participate in the Habitat for Humanity’s Adopt a Family Program, hoping to brighten the holidays of a family of four faced with a recent significant financial hardship. This family contributed 400 hours of sweat equity building their new home with the help of volunteers. Habitat finances their purchase and the family is responsible for making a mortgage payment, utilities, taxes, and insurance. While this family has shouldered these financial responsibilities during a time of unexpected hardship, they face a tough holiday, especially for the children.
Using the family’s profile information and wish list, along with the generosity of the Rosemann team, all the items that the family has hoped for have been purchased by staff, including warm clothes, fun toys, handy gift cards, and even several extra sets of clothes, shoes, and housewares!
The Rosemann team hopes to lift a weight off this family’s shoulders and bring happiness into their home on Christmas Day.

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.
