The ProExpo

On Tax Day 2010, Pella put on a great event for Architects and Builders in Minnesota called "TheProExpo". Held at the HHH Metrodome in Minneapolis, MN.

This 100% Free event consisted of Burgers, Brats and free drinks and was a great opportunity to learn more about fantastic products and services while also being very well entertained by some fun activites including a baseball and football challenges. On top of that, up to $10,000 worth in prizes were given out.

Another great draw for Architects was the opportunity to receive several hours of Continuing Education Units as part of the presentations.

These are just some of the highlights. I'll be posting a link to a full gallery for attendies to view if their interested.

Oakdale Nature Center

I've recently completed some initial processing for two photo shoots.

This is Oakdale Nature Center, in Oakdale, MN. These will eventually be reduced to the final selections. Which would you choose?

Pella - Builder Days Tour

Oct. 4th - 6th I went traveled to Pella, IA for the Pella Builder Days. I covered the event and had a great time learning more about the quality of their manufacturing process and the passion that Pella has for creating a series of fantastic products. Architects, Designers, and Builders from the Midwest and East Coast representing 1/2 a dozen cities were there.

While I wasn't allowed to document the factory floor or the testing lab, I think we were all impressed with the streamlined process of their methods and the quality they provide each step of the way. Three things I took away from the tour personally. 1) The dedication that Pella had to reducing the amount of manufacturing waste that gets recycled. 2) The passion that each employee had about what they do. 3) The catering that they have on site, is fantastic. 

I've broken the images I took into 4 parts. You can bypass any slide show and go the the thumbnail gallery by clicking any of the larger images. You may copy any images from here for personal use. However please contact me for commercial use.
