When Cindy Fennessey was looking for someone to manage construction of New Horizons Child Care Center in the Mariner Mall, she turned to Meyer Group P.C.
“Whenever I had a problem — whenever there were any changes to be made, they were very accommodating,” Fennessey said.
Plus, they were the least expensive of three firms she’d taken her plans to, and they understood what was required in construction of a child care facility in Wisconsin, despite being a Duluth-based firm.
Now Meyer Group is expanding its reach into Superior with a new branch office in the Blaine Business Center.
Meyer Group P.C. is a multidisciplinary architectural firm. It provides architectural, planning, interior design, project management, graphic design and owner representation services. The firm also offers engineering services through consultants.
Having worked with Tim Meyer, the owner of the company, as the director of facilities management at the University of Wisconsin Superior, Tom Fennessey said he worked with Meyer to bring the company’s branch office to Superior.
“It fills a real niche,” Fennessey said. “… To actually have a full working architectural firm in Superior will fill a niche we don’t have right now.”
Fennessey said he encouraged Meyer to open an office here because the business is the right size to take on state work, as well as commercial work in the area.
“Based on some of the new things happening in Superior, we decided to open a branch over there, test the waters a little bit,” said Meyer, who started the company in Duluth four years ago. “Having an office in Superior is actually within our business plan.”
A graduate of North Dakota State, Meyer said his interest in art and design prompted him to open the business. He said a number of the projects he’s worked on are community development types of projects.
They include a classroom laboratory renovation at the Leech Lake Tribal College in Cass Lake, Minn., Kinnamon School preservation project for the Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Chippewa near Hayward and renovation of Sattgast Hall at Bemidji State University in Minnesota.
Meyer said he hopes that opening the office in Superior will allow him to better serve Wisconsin by working with the University of Wisconsin-Superior, the state and clients in city.
“We’ve had good experiences when we’ve done work in Superior so we decided to try things out over there and see how things work out,” Meyer said.
The new office is in Suite 102 of the Blaine Business Center, 823 Belknap St. Call 715-392-3599 or visit www.meyergroupduluth.com.
