Rockstone & Big Lug

Meyer Najem Completes its 3rd Rockstone Pizza & 1st Big Lug Brewery

Square Feet: 10,660

Architect: Design Point, Inc.

Pizza & beer, what a perfect combination…for building. Right off the Monon Trail near 86th Street in Indianapolis, this project started with knocking down an existing building that was once a restaurant and had been vacant for about a year prior to construction. Once the project team was able to start with a clean slate, they were able to move forward with construction that consisted of a two-story building to house Rockstone Pizza on one side and Big Lug Canteen on the other. The Rockstone Pizza side consists of its signature 10-foot brick oven, red mosaic tiling and customized arc-shaped concrete bar top. The Big Lug side consists of an outdoor concession stand and seating area that can be a welcome stop for people on the Monon Trail. Because of the brewery on the second floor, the building in essence had to be built around the brewing equipment. The first floor houses the main dining area and cooler where patrons can see the conditioning tanks. Incorporated in the interior as well as the exterior is reclaimed barn siding and a Corten Steel barn door serves as function and decoration throughout.

We were happy to be able to work with HAND again on this project that ended up being constructed simultaneously with the Roper Capstone project.

Each apartment is 900 square feet with two bedrooms and one bath. Each partment has an open floor plan with its own utility room and washer and dryer. We completed additional improvements to the site with an extension of the main road and parking spaces, installation of storm water structures and drainage pipes and extending the retention pond. We are confident that the tenants will be happy to call Spicewood Gardens their home.Spicewood Sheridan

Insights In Construction V16 – Issue 1: Safety Coaching

Safety Coaching: A Game Plan for Motivation

Chris Mitchell, CSP

Account Manager, Safety Management Group

Professional sports teams are groups of people who bring very different skills together to achieve victories. A pitcher and a third-basemen work just feet apart, but have separate responsibilities. A left tackle and a quarterback couldn’t be more different, but their actions must be perfectly synchronized. And point guards and centers have roles that evolve depending on the side of the court.

Meyer Najem’s 8th Annual Swing into Giving™ Charity Golf Outing Breaks Records

Meyer Najem hosted their 8th annual Swing into Giving™ charity golf outing on July 31 and can tout record breaking numbers. This year’s recipient was the Humane Society for Hamilton County.

_MG_8986  _MG_8987

IMG_7597  _MG_9105_MG_9427 Eagle Creek Gold Club rolled out the “green” carpet for supporters, sponsors, and even a few “furbabies,” including Gracie who was an honorary chair this year. This was the second year Swing into Giving was hosted at Eagle Creek Golf Club due to the increasing numbers of supporters. The staff at HSHC was helpful in every way possible. They set up early with a booth of information on volunteering, making additional donations, and even pet adoption. And, throughout the day, HSHC helped to keep golfers hydrated by visiting all 36 holes of the golf course.

Sam Mishelow, Chief Strategy Officer for Meyer Najem, and Rebecca Stevens, Executive Director for the Humane Society for Hamilton County, drove through both the Sycamore and Pines courses and thanked supporters for participating in the outing.

SwingIntoGiving2015Swing into Giving™ 2015 culminated with a final check presentation on September 1 for a grand total of $51,050! This is the largest amount raised through the golf outing to date. The money raised will help HSHC in giving 170 heartworm positive dogs the proper care and medicine they need, perform hit-and-run surgery on 20 dogs or cats, and feed animals for approximately 2,042 days. The support of this golf event will allow many of the Humane Society of Hamilton County’s “furabies” to have that second chance they deserve.

Public-Private Partnerships

Using Public-Private Partnerships to Jump-Start Economic Development

By Michael M. Harmless

During difficult economic times, people either find a way or lose their way. That sentiment applies to local governments as well. Government agencies currently are under severe stress as they try to balance tight budgets and increased demand for services. In this climate, all elected officials are responsible for maintaining community assets, investing in new infrastructure, and expanding the tax base.

Mayors and other elected officials cannot sit by idly while their cities, towns, or counties slide backward as a result of limited financial resources. What are local elected officials to do? They must find strong community partners to secure the funds necessary to support economic development. Continue reading
