If you haven’t seen the new retail store at Sweetwater then what are you waiting for? What was once their first warehouse, is now the largest music store in the US!
This new space on the Sweetwater corporate campus covers a sprawling 40,000 square feet, with separate showrooms, demo spaces, and unique experiences (like piano keys made from light fixtures in the piano showroom) for each musical style.
The new front entrance makes more of a statement and moves the main doors to the center of the building for easy access to the main concourse of the building. Check out the images below of the final product, or take a virtual tour of the whole campus!
Spring has Sprung! We are looking forward to a great year in 2021 (Not that we have been in hibernation!) Behind the scenes, we’ve been getting started on the largest backlog in our company’s history. We’ve made a point to educate and cultivate our robust team to both tackle our current backlog and pursue new opportunities!
In a market where tradesmen numbers have decreased, it is completely vital that we maintain our manpower base. Internally, we have created educational programs at all levels, from Apprentices to Project Superintendents, that allow us to collectively share our practical knowledge and encourage professional development. Externally, we continue to have heavy involvement with our surrounding high schools trade programs. By partnering with the trades programs, we are able to provide pathways for students with interest in joining the trades. Weigand also has a program for students pursuing Construction Management degrees. Our program requires 2 summers of field internship, and 2 summers of office internship.
It was a gorgeous day for a Steel Topping Ceremony! Our friends at Byron Wellness Community gathered to sign their ceremonial beam which was installed at the highest point of steel on their new home this morning. Congratulations everyone!
We’ve got a preconstruction think tank happening at WCI headquarters today! A full parking lot means a full training room of skilled professionals ready to make an impact on Fort Wayne – by putting their expertise to the test on the Electric Works project. ??⚡
The Fort Wayne Habitat for Humanity ReStore has officially opened its doors! This morning we had the pleasure of participating in the ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony for their new location on Lima Road. The new 26,000 square foot facility is twice the size of their previous location on Wells Street. We are so proud to be part of this project to not only serve the community itself, but also the families in need of affordable housing.
