We’re starting the new decade on a strong note at JOHNSON NATHAN STROHE! From meaningful volunteer experiences to a few of our staff members getting more involved in impactful Denver industry groups, here’s what’s happening at JNS.
We are thrilled that our very own Radek Wakulik, who has been an architect at JNS since early 2018, was accepted into the Downtown Denver Leadership Program. Since 2004, this program has offered more than 1,000 individuals a unique opportunity to foster professional relationships and lend their voice on projects that are instrumental to Denver’s growth and vitality.
This year’s class project is centered around building connections through play. Inspired by the Partnership’s Urban Exploration trip to Copenhagen where urban playgrounds and play spaces help foster health and well-being for its residents, participants of the program will create a set of inspiring and impactful encounters that will give people a new way to experience Downtown Denver.
Interior Designer Sammy Kelley is also advancing her involvement in the local community by joining CityBuild. A program of the Downtown Denver Partnership, CityBuild brings Denver devotees together to collaborate on big ideas to help shape and enhance the urban fabric of Downtown Denver. At a recent CityBuild presentation, members learned about the master plan for the 16th Street Mall and how it aims to enhance the Mall experience for visitors, improve pedestrian safety and mobility, and modernize its deteriorating infrastructure, all while honoring its iconic look.
Giving back to our Denver community is an important part of our culture here at JNS. Recently, a few of our team members got out of the office and volunteered at Denver Rescue Mission – an organization committed to helping restore the lives of people experiencing homelessness and addiction. See a few snapshots of our team below.
