Project Showcase

Mehesan Office Building Renovation

MehesanOfficeBuilding_after.jpg 
It may not be a big job - in square footage - but it is huge in transformation!  This building in Spencer, IA MehesanOfficeBuilding_before.jpgwas looking drab and antiquated.  There was no curb appeal at all.  That is until Outsulation® entered the picture.   The idea originated with Matt Barstad of Cannon Moss Brygger Architects (CMBA) after MehesanOfficeBuilding_entrance.jpgSteven Frey, Dryvit Distributor Sales Representative for Dakota Walls, presented an AIA box lunch to CMBA.  Matt was able to see the potential in this building and gave it new life by using Outsulation with TerraNeo® Finish and Reflectit® over Lymestone™ Finish.  The applicator Jeff Kobernusz of JKXteriors did a fantastic job and now has a great showpiece to use in their future selling.  It all started with Steven and a one-hour box lunch.  Nice job Steven!

According to McGraw-Hill Construction Research, Healthcare and Education are the hottest markets for green building?  These two markets are also applying for special tax breaks and funding for both new and especially renovation work that is needed. 

Did you also know that Dryvit has a brochure that targets each of these markets?

As we all look for ways to promote Outsulation® and its benefits, these are two areas that should not be overlooked.  If you haven't done so already, we recommend you develop a list in your territory of professionals who are involved in construction at all the local hospitals, medical facilities, colleges, and primary and secondary schools.  Then either send them the appropriate brochure or email them the on-line version.  Follow up with a phone call, email or visit.  Find out what their needs are in the coming year or two.  Help them solve their problem with Outsulation!

Family Matters
Our penguin family keeps growing with:

 

Brody Christopher Vernet - born on November 7, 2010.  Brody is the grandson of Cecily Douthit, Dryvit'sCecily_Brody_Christine_Emma.jpg Engineering Secretary.  Brody was so excited to meet his family that he decided to come into this world a little earlier than everyone had expected.  He is continuing to gain weight each week, and as you can see from the picture, Big Sis Emma, and Mom, Christine, can't wait to take him home.
 
Ava Isabella Ciccanesi - born on December 10, Gary_Rezedes_Ava_Isabella.jpg2010.  Ava is the first grandchild of Gary Rezendes, Dryvit's Information Technology Manager.  Ava weighed in at 5 lbs, 9 oz and was 19" long at birth.  The entire family is very excited about Ava's arrival and is looking forward to her first Christmas.
