Many Hands Make Light Work
With the adage in mind that “many hands make light work,” we journeyed into the uncharted territory of renovating the Innsbrook Foundation Office to create an atmosphere that would better reflect the rich history and pristine beauty of Innsbrook. Our adventure quickly proved to be an extraordinary opportunity to tell Innsbrook’s story through the introduction of elm accent walls representing the elm trees that once lined the entrance of Innsbrook. These unique walls now provide a creative anchor for the reclaimed lettering from the original Innsbrook monument sign. Lining other walls are photos of the signature events of Innsbrook that help us bring the members of our community together and partner with generous sponsors and local charities that benefit from these events.
We have many to thank for our beautiful, new home. Hank Robertson, Director of Operations for Highwoods Properties, worked tirelessly to create a plan and layout for the new offices. With the assistance of Planning and Design Manager, Christie Terry and Interior Designer, Kayla Newton, the Highwoods Design Gallery was able to innovate our work space into a more functional, brighter and more up-to-date and professional environment. Without Hank’s and Christie’s donation of time and talent, the renovation would simply not have been possible. Heartfelt thanks also to Bruce Kay, Vice President of Markel Corporation, for the provision of a temporary work space during the renovation and the generous donation of beautiful glass framing and furniture to the office. Special thanks to Joanne Miller, Account Manager for Shaw Contract Group for their generous donation of handsome commercial flooring for the entire office suite. The carpet and tiles provide a professional yet stylish interior for our suite. We also received a flat screen television from Carter Marchant, General Manager of Hilton Garden Inn, which put a nice finishing touch on our new board room. Elm wrap around on the reception desk, elm accent walls and an endless waterfall elm table for the board room were all designed and created through a most amazing donation of time and talent from Hank Robertson and Tim Jancsics of Highwoods Properties. Their master carpentry skills added a unique flavor to our office that will leave you breathless! Come visit us so we can create meaningful partnerships with you for the new year! Many thanks to the Innsbrook Foundation Board and staff members who came together to paint during the renovation: Carter Marchant, Bruce Kay, Dave Cummings, Brian Menditto, Patricia Hogan, Matthew Turner, Sandy Kuhn, Jeffrey Tuck, and Sharhonda Scott, Director of Security for Allied Universal Patrol at Innsbrook.
The foundation of our partnerships and friendships can make amazing things happen for all of us in the new year!
Wishing you and yours the special joys of the holiday season! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
