Volunteer Day at Food Bank of the Rockies

Food Bank of the Rockies

Volunteer day at Food Bank of the Rockies! Our team was 14 strong (which included a few spouses/significant others), and we worked with other volunteers to sort through donated food items and then package into deliverable boxes for families in the Denver metro area. In total, we packaged over 5000 lbs of food, which will provide a meal for over 16,000 people! Way to go MOA!

Pumpkin Carving and Potluck 2018

It’s baaa-ack! After a couple year hiatus pumpkin carving was back at the MOA offices. Team members spent the afternoon scooping, scraping and carving creative pumpkins. Along with pumpkin carving there were plenty of spooktacular treats to eat!

A big thank you to our judges Abbie Krane, Ryan Bengford and Mike Sawyer and Troy Meyer from SVN Denver Commercial for taking on the daunting task of choosing just one winner out of the extremely imaginative entries. This year’s winning pumpkin titled ‘Do I Have Something in My Teeth?’, was created by team members Kelly Tornes, Taylor Coe, Ross Eddy and Jack Mousseau.

Do you agree with the judges? Check out the photos and let us know which is your favorite pumpkin!

Far Northeast Campus #28 Receives ENR Award

ENR Award

MOA’s Far Northeast Campus #28 project, a PK-8 school in Denver, has received a prestigious ENR Mountain States award in the K-12 Education category. Submitted by the project’s contractor, Adolfson & Peterson Construction, the project was in competition with submissions from across Colorado, Wyoming, South Dakota, and North Dakota. The nine-member jury, drawn from across the A/E/C industry, selected winners and merit awards from 124 total entries.

According to ENR, submitted projects are chosen on the basis of “design and construction quality, contribution to the community and the industry and how [the project teams] overcame unusual challenges through teamwork and innovation.”

Far Northeast Campus #28 is notable for the tremendous teamwork between the client, Denver Public Schools, Adolfson & Peterson, and MOA, designing and delivering the project in 15 months and under budget. Recognized projects will appear in the October issue of ENR Mountain States, and winners will be honored at a breakfast awards events in Denver and Salt Lake City in the coming weeks.
