ACE Mentor Program

KA and Whiting-Turner Construction met with fifteen Warrensville Heights High School sophomores as part of the nationwide Architecture, Construction and Engineering (ACE) Mentor Program.  We shared our thoughts on how architects and construction managers interact on projects using Thistledown Racino as a case study. We also shared early design ideas, how the design evolved and photographs / videos of the completed project.  The students were fully engaged and benefited greatly from their time spent in KA's new office. Future architects and CM's in making.

KA Marshmallow Challenge 2015

by Administrator21. December 2015 16:04

 

KA had a blast at our 2015 Holiday Party participating in the Marshmallow Challenge.  Six teams feverishly designed, engineered and constructed their pasta tower collaborating to support one marshmallow from twenty pieces of spaghetti, a yard of masking tape and a yard of string all within an eighteen minute time limit.  It was a heated battle but team RAJ was the winner with their 28" tall structure!  Visit the marshmallow challenge website to learn more about the team building contest.

 Champions - Team RAJ, Andrew Wehler, Jae Cho and Rich Wilden 

 

Second Place team - Rachel, Hitomi, Ron and Kevin

 

Good effort but no cigar!

 

 Oh so close....

 

 Go big or go home!  Well guess what, they went home empty handed.

 

 Good effort, but not quite
