WE ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE OUR COLLABORATION WITH SAINT MARY’S COLLEGE OF CALIFORNIA. . . McKeon Pavilion Expansion Polytech Associates is excited to be working with Saint Mary’s College on the expansion of McKeon Pavilion as well as the design and construction of a new Student Athlete Performance Center. The expansion of McKeon Pavilion consists of a renovation to the front of McKeon to provide a new entrance lobby and additional spectator seating, and a new expansion to the rear of McKeon to provide additional spectator seating and to accommodate the new Athletic Department offices and team training areas. The first floor of the rear expansion will add a women’s volleyball area, team weight room and equipment storage. The second floor will add a team training area, offices for the Athletic Department and additional spectator seating. There will be improvements to the existing McKeon Pavilion, new landscaped front and rear entrances and new pedestrian walkways within the site area. Click here to learn more about this project.

PETCHITECTURE 2014 Heather Holmes, weekend anchor for KTVU News, selected Polytech Associates to design the Petchitecture habitat for Lolli, her daughter Hannah’s pet poodle. Inspired by A.A. Milne’s Winnie the Pooh, Hannah’s friendship with Lolli is very similar to that of Christopher Robin and Pooh. The habitat was built to resemble a beehive, Pooh’s favorite destination… a place where “hunny” can be found. Adjacent to the hive is a tree from the Hundred Acre Wood, perfect for a little girl and her poodle to sit under and dream. Proceeds from Petchitecture, Pets Are Wonderful Support’s (PAWS) annual gala, provide thousands of low-income seniors and individuals living with disabilities with programs and services that help them maintain the love and companionship of their animals. Polytech’s team included Rob Razzo, Project Manager, Julie Brown, EDAC, Lead Designer, and Arvin Nassim Yazd, Designer. Our habitat would not have been a success without the help of our partners. A big thank you to: Hathaway Dinwiddie: General Contractor Design Workshops: Habitat Builder Benjamin Moore & Co. and Creative Paint: Paint Architrave: Pet Cushion SYNlawn: Front Lawn Mark Rogers: Photography Learn more about Petchitecture and Pets Are Wonderful Support here!
