Speakers at the groundbreaking ceremony included:
- Rod Lee, Partner/Broker, Premier Commercial Properties
- Jessica Sharp, Executive Director, Growing Generations
- Mike Miron, City of Hugo Councilmember
Rod Lee, partner/broker says, “The vacant site was perfect for the new center. Hugo is a growing area with a need for additional child educational programs that extend beyond traditional daycare.” Premier Commercial Properties and Sharp worked with Amcon Construction to design and build the new center.
Mark Huus, partner and director of architecture says, “We designed the site in a way that allows preservation of the existing wetland. In addition, a pedestrian link was added to the adjacent county trail. The wetland posed some challenges early to accommodate the parking lot, but we were able to develop a strategy that ultimately worked for the new center and maintained a natural element for the community.” The building’s exterior combines a mix of materials including cultured stone with lap and shingle siding.
