The new school included creating new classrooms, offices, break-out rooms, specialty rooms for science, art, dance and a recording studio. The former big-box construction supply store was also fitted out with all new restrooms, a warming kitchen, electrical and data systems, and multiple new HVAC units. This project was completed in joint partnership with Lami Grubb Architects, the architect of record. Design on the Square participated with Lami Grubb Architects in schematic design and design development, provided coordination with the engineering consultants, and produced construction drawings.

The region’s largest independently owned bridal shop was outgrowing its strip mall location and purchased an abandoned restaurant and mini-golf course. They quickly took over 75% of the two story building, adding a full service bridal boutique, mother of the bride department, tuxedo rental store, and a tailoring shop. Two years later, they expanded into the remaining 25% of the space to increase their showroom of prom and homecoming dresses as well. Brian Viehland was the project architect for this renovation while a project architect at Lami Grubb Architects.
