Congratulations to the winners of the third quarter Kraus-Anderson Mission Vision Team Award: the Cabela’s Hamburg, PA remodel project team of Rick Lund, Bob Putnam, Brad Swanson, Greg Koski, Nic Holzhauer and Hannah Jungbauer. The team was nominated by Peter Linsmeier, a project manager in the KA WI office. Peter’s nomination reads:
“I would like to nominate the Cabela’s Hamburg, PA Remodel project team for the KA Mission/Vision award. The Hamburg store was Kraus-Anderson’s fifth remodel project for Cabela’s, and touched nearly every square foot of retail space in the 240,000 s.f. building. The Hamburg store is Cabela’s largest and highest grossing store. The remodel was completed within an extremely aggressive 12-week schedule and within budget. The project team, consisting of Rick Lund, Bob Putnam, Brad Swanson, Greg Koski, Nic Holzhauer, and Hannah Jungbauer, deserves recognition for their dedication to completing this out-of-town project through many over nights, long days, and weekends.
The store posted a marked increase in sales throughout the remodel. A recent customer comment also directly reflects the hard work of the project team. The customer wrote:
‘The Hamburg store is under construction at this time; but every item in the store is available. Being a construction manager for many years, the contractor doing the work must be complemented on the safety and cleanliness of the store. Cabela’s has a good staff at the Hamburg store. Keep up the great work.’
This project team exemplifies Kraus-Anderson’s mission of innovative construction solutions by continuing to improve processes, and positioning both Kraus-Anderson and our partner, Cabela’s, for continued growth and success in the future.
The KA Mission/Vision Program identifies and spotlights Kraus-Anderson employee activities that embody and support our Core Purpose, Building Enduring Relationships and Strong Communities.
