#ThrowbackThursday Spokane Falls Community College Infield Turf

By | Landscape Design, News | No Comments

#ThrowbackThursday Due to Spokane’s weather and poorly-draining natural turf field’s condition, Spokane Falls Community College’s infield was only for use about half the year and was not conducive for soccer play. Bernardo Wills Architects was tasked with replacing the natural grass field with a multi-use synthetic turf system. The project also included the installation of an irrigation system to cool and wash the synthetic field, and minor patch and repair work of the synthetic surfacing of the running track and field events. With these improvements, teams can utilize the field for practice and competition throughout the year in safe conditions, and more athletes will benefit from the play surface.

Quaran-Tip #3: Talk a Walk!

By | News, quaran-tip | No Comments

Today’s Quaran-tip is from Emily Moline Meyer: “On my work from home days, I make a point to get out and walk in my neighborhood part-way through the day. If I have a lunch meeting, I take a late break and walk to nearby Corbin Park and back. Having time away from my screen actually boosts my productivity for the afternoon, and gives me an opportunity to work problems out in my head. Without the commute and reasons to get up and chat with a coworker, it is easy to stay put for hours at a time in my home office. Gotta enjoy the great weather while we have it!”

#ThrowbackThursday to our first company rafting trip in 2015. Since then, our trip has grown to include every family in the office, with 2019’s trip growing to 80 people camping together for two nights. We have greatly missed our big team-building event this year, but know there will be much to celebrate when we emerge from the challenges brought by COVID-19. Go, Team!

Updates from the Great Flood-themed North Bank Playground

By | Architecture, Construction, Landscape Design, News | No Comments

Here are some construction photos from the Great Flood-themed North Bank Playground in Riverfront Park. ID Sculpture is on-site hand-carving some of the playground climbing walls. They have built plastic tents over the sculpting areas and have a team of 4-6 people in each tent scoring cutting and sculpting the rock to make it reflect our local geology. The skatepark, with two bowls, is also taking shape. Once they start pouring concrete and forming the bowls, the entire process will take about three weeks.
