Hoefer Wysocki Receives KC Business Journal ImpacT Award

Our firm is pleased to announce that our very own Jason Gardner received a Kansas City Business Journal ImpacT award in the “cutting expenses” category. This award program recognizes individuals in the Kansas City area for projects that have positively impacted their companies’ internal operations, efficiency and financial performance through the use of new or existing technology.

As the BIM Manager, Jason has helped implement an enhanced digital design review process which has resulted in a 7-10% reduction in printing costs and significantly improved project communication. His frequent use of web conferencing for client presentations and project meetings has helped reduce our firms travel expenses by 15% and his creation of various reports during the design and construction phases of projects has helped our firm improve operations by tracking, updating, and maintaining information to improve and enhance decision-making throughout the project lifecycle.

Hoefer Wysocki was recipient of this award because of our ability to save money, increase efficiency and create a better experience for our clients. We are the only architecture firm that made the list of 13 recipients. Jason will receive the award at a ceremony provided by the Kansas City Business Journal on Nov 4, 2013. Congratulations, Jason! Everyone keep up the great work!

United Way Week 2013

This past week Hoefer Wysocki participated in United Way Week for the seventh year in a row. Our theme this year was Candyland and as a firm, we raised over $15,000 for people in need within the Kansas City community.

The office was divided up into four teams, all of which were candy themed and consisted of M&Ms, Smarties, Baby Ruth, and PopRocks. Some of you might know that here at Hoefer Wysocki, we are always up for a friendly competition in our office, and this week was no different!

Each day, the teams competed against each other for points in activities such as basepong, trivia, singing bee, and a pop quiz! Since United Way Week fell on the same week as Halloween, our staff dressed in costumes on Friday for team photos and a best dressed competition! Team M&M took the overall win with the highest amount of donations, but Team PopRocks had the most participation points of the week!

Take a look at some of the photos below! We had a lot of fun and enjoyed contributing to a wonderful cause to benefit our community members in need!
