Every Friday afternoon, we try to do something different. This usually involves beer but it could also mean a game of Collaborative Chess, a BrewPub down the street, sketching along the river, etc. A recent Friday, we had an in-office competition for interested parties to design something useful and to print it on our new 3D Printer. Here are the results:
1. The old Houston Astrodome used as a planter:
The next entry was a sandwich slicer:
Our final entry was a Conestoga Pen and Pencil Holder:
We haven't yet voted on a winner. But the Grand Prize will be...more beer.
Our recent addition to the rooftop at the Tom Green County Library has been a great success!
This was a plan we worked on some years ago...we still think it would be a good direction for this segment of the Concho River. Yes?
The new Holy Angels Education Building is complete!
We're proud to have teamed with the West Texas Counseling and Guidance Center to create some remarkable new spaces for their important work.
While demolition is nearly complete, materials from the 20's are uncovered and prove they really stand the test of time.
Construction has begun! Bible Study Area has a new look taking shape.
Home Stretch - The name has been selected, seating is in place, and sculptural forms are taking shape. While the completion is near, we wanted to share the progress underway.
The Art of Construction - While the San Angelo Performing Art Center is steadily progressing, we decided to take a moment to reflect on the attention to details, beauty in unexpected places, and a glimpse from a performer's perspective.

The Concho River, Parks and Trails Rehabilitation Project was given this award by the state of Texas for excellence in park design.
"The Park Design Excellence Award recognizes both the Parks and Recreation Department and the Design Professional for their team work for park design. This year’s winners are Kinney Franke Architects and San Angelo Parks and Recreation Department for the design of the Concho River, Parks & Trails Rehabilitation Project. The Concho River, Parks and Trails Rehabilitation Project was designed by Kinney Franke Architects of San Angelo and funded by community half-cent sales tax and several grants. The primary purpose of the $10M+ project was to stop erosion and stabilize the banks of the river in the core area of downtown. Several improvements were made to the area, including fountain renovations, river stabilization, and the installation of art and exercise equipment along the trails." -Texas Recreation & Park Society
