Attitude of Gratitude

November, 2023

On the heels of the long Thanksgiving weekend, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, we are grateful for full bellies, time with family and friends, and some great deals to kick off the holiday season. I think most of us are in shock that the final weeks of the year are upon us.

As we are faced with a month of shopping lists, white elephant gifts and a calendar of holiday parties, we are also back in the office and on jobsites, hard at work making sure many of our projects get finished out for the year.  We are also preparing for some new projects that will be kicked off after the rapidly approaching 2024 arrives.

But to continue on the message of being thankful, we are grateful to all of you, our customers, architects, designers and partners, for giving us the opportunity to work with you and to be a part of your team this year.

May you enjoy the upcoming holiday season, and if you have questions or projects to discuss, please reach out!

There is no slowing down in the financial markets, as we continue to see more banks and credit unions popping up on out lots around the country.

Many grabbed a delicious dessert for their Thanksgiving feast at the new Nothing Bundt Cakes on Indy’s NW side- which opened just in time for the holidays! We have long enjoyed a relationship with this growing franchise, both in Indy and around the Midwest. The 2,500 SF bakery, designed by Ohio’s L|P Architecture, sits in the busy Trader Joe’s center along W. 86th. Repeat clients make for a very smooth project!
