How Quickly Life Can Change

March, 2020

Sending this newsletter is hard.  We have clients, partners and friends who have been deeply impacted by the virus sweeping across the world.  Obviously, there’s no one that hasn’t been impacted.  However, we have been amazed at people’s goodness, stepping up to help others, doing the right thing, and we are committed to the practices of keeping our team and clients as safe as possible during this time.  We are doing our best to make progress where we can and are confident that we will all come back stronger than ever, and more grateful for things that we may have previously taken for granted!  Like you all, we are adjusting to doing our work differently and carrying on in our personal lives too, wishing you all health and safety!

Amidst the chaos, we have had some exciting things that happened this month.  One of our longtime Project Manager’s, Zach Naze and Katie, welcomed their first daughter, Portia Divine Naze, and everyone is healthy & happy! Capitol was also named the 15th largest Indianapolis-area contractor by the Indianapolis Business Journal!  We are proud of our steady growth over our 21 years, thanks to amazing clients, partners, and our team!

Here are a few projects we finished up earlier in the month around the country! Additional photos of these projects below can be viewed on our facebook page. As always, if you’re interested in talking further about our work or a potential project, please contact Lauren Kriner!
