EHC Christmas Party…

EHC Christmas Party…

This years Christmas party was held at Samantha’s in Little Rock. They have a beautiful skybox that overlooks the main floor restaurant. Trimmed in garland and lights, this room made the perfect setting for a cozy, family style get together.

The food was amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed the fellowship. The evening wrapped up with a few rounds of Christmas carols led by Dietrich Booth

Special thanks to Van Tilbury and all the people at EHC that make it such a great place to work!

Polk Stanley Wilcox Architects New Headquarters…

Polk Stanley Wilcox Architects New Headquarters…

The recently renovated, historic Winchester Building is now home to Polk Stanley Wilcox Architects.  This nostalgic piece of history boasts its original glass block entrance, steel frames and brick facade.
 
The interior has been beautifully redesigned and renovated to show off the original steel-framed, glass windows that divide the gathering hall and reception area from the large, two-story open-air office space.

A center niche has been carved out to provide a beautiful kitchen with all the modern day amenities one  would expect, including two stainless steel refrigerators, two stainless steel microwaves, a stainless steel dishwasher and a stainless steel coffee station.  All of this stainless steel is beautifully wrapped in wood-grain cabinetry and accented with matching shelves lined with cups, plates, and glassware.  The stone covered island and countertops turn this space into a uniquely inviting area for the Polk Stanley Wilcox staff to refresh and replenish.

The upstairs is comprised of conference/meeting rooms and open view office spaces that overlook the work stations on the main floor.

One of the most unique aspects of this space is the original, functioning dumbwaiter with its wheel & sprocket crank shaft that brings back a bit of nostalgia.

The combination of old and new is this beautifully redesigned building is representative of the importance of historic preservation and the necessity of modernization.

The new Polk Stanley Wilcox headquarters demonstrates the best of both and East Harding Construction is very proud and grateful to have been a part of bringing the past into the future.

Carelink’s Cupcakes for Goodness Sake…

Carelink’s Cupcakes for Goodness Sake…

East Harding Construction is proud to be an “Icing on the Cake” sponsor for Carelink’s 5th Annual “Cupcakes for Goodness Sake”.

The annual cupcake festival is a chance to connect with the community & to raise awareness about CareLink, a nonprofit organization that has been headquartered in NLR since 1979 to provide care and resources to the aging.

The theme this year was Halloween and everyone, including pets, were encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes to the festival.  There were many activities going on in addition to the cupcake tastings such as face painting, a petting zoo and cupcake decorating.

The delicious event was a big success and plans are likely underway to make next years event even more fun and more delicious!

Phillips County Justice Complex…

A formidable building with a formidable job to do.
&nbsp
The sheer amount of steel and concrete in this structure will be a huge deterrent for anyone seeking to escape justice.
