November News

“No one who achieves success does so without the help of others!” 

Thanksgiving is upon us! The time of year to reflect on what we are grateful for.  Our team of associates, many who have been with us since the start.  Our clients, who continue to grow with us and help us grow, by doing more work and referring us to others.  Our industry friends: subcontractors, architects, designers, suppliers, brokers, and referral partners. Those that support us from the homefront. Our families, Our freedom.  We could go on and on!

Our team will be attending ICSC’s Centerbuild next week- if you will be there and would like to connect, let us know!  We’re excited to network with construction professionals in the shopping center industry from around the country, learning about the latest trends, areas of growth and how to combat challenges.

We are featuring a good representation of what we excel at this month: office interiors, restaurants, hospitality, and soft goods retail. 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!

Wishing you all a very happy Thanksgiving!  We are grateful for each of you!

1933 LOUNGE, Fishers, IN- 4,800 Sq. Ft

The popular 1933 Lounge in downtown Indy will open its second Indy-area establishment next week in the Yard at Fishers District!  While we have several projects under construction at this Thompson Thrift development, 1933 is the first to open, welcoming guests looking for a place to relax and enjoy each other’s company, just in time for the holiday season.  Stop in to experience a first-class bar menu, in addition to some of the St. Elmo’s favorites like the famous shrimp cocktail, either on the plush lounge furniture or the heated outdoor patio!  Indianapolis-based Phanomen designed rich finishes in the 4,800 square foot Lounge.  Huse Culinary’s HC Tavern & Kitchen will also open at the Yard in early 2020!

The BURN lounge is ideal for those looking for a wide variety of  cigars, premium cocktails, food options, and live entertainment.  The City has been looking forward to this beautiful venue to open, with access from both Meridian and Maryland streets!
