CNH Architects Principal Wayne Hilbert serves as a design mentor with the University of Minnesota AIAS Chapter's Freedom by Design program.

He helped a student team to design a sensory therapeutic playground at the Karner Blue Education Center.

"You can see the energy level that they bring to it," said Hilbert. "And, it's a lot of fun to be a part of that."

AIAS is the American Institute of Architecture Students.

CNH Architectural Designer Al Tsai is back again with his dog, Lucky, and both are walking in the "5K9 Strut for a Mutt" event in Eden Prairie on Sunday, May 21 for Secondhand Hounds. CNH is also a sponsor.

"I am excited to support Secondhand Hounds, which rescues dogs and cats from high-kill rate shelters from around the region," Tsai said. His fundraising page has a $1,000 pledge goal. Last year's event raised $30,000.

Tsai and his wife adopted Lucky through Secondhand Hounds two years ago and have stayed in touch with the people who care for the dog's litter-mates, as well as the woman who cared for Lucky prior to his adoption.

"Lucky is a big part of our family, loves to eat bananas, likes long walks and sleeping on the couch during the day," said Tsai. "We are always blessed to care for him and blessed by his affection, calm and steady personality, and readiness for a tummy rub."

Secondhand Hounds rescues animals, places them in foster homes, arranges for adoptions and places them in hospice care if needed, Tsai explains.

The event begins at 10:30 a.m. at Purgatory Creek Park. Individual entry fees are $50, and $30 for youth.

CNH Architects founder passes away

Glenn W. Cording, the founder of a firm that later became CNH Architects, passed away peacefully in his sleep on March 23. He was 92.

“Glenn had great concern for his clients and established this as a strong part of our corporate culture, something we still believe in today,” said CNH Architects Principal Wayne Hilbert, who worked with the firm's founder toward the end of his architectural career. Glenn retired in the early 1980s and lived in Colorado Springs, Colo. He had established the CNH firm as Glenn W. Cording and Associates in 1969.

Glenn Cording was born in St. Paul on February 11, 1925, lived for several years on a farm in Osceola, Wis., and served in World War II as a Navy pilot, according to his obituary in the Echo Press in Alexandria, Minn. He designed many county buildings, churches and service buildings for Ziegler Caterpillar. Read the full obituary.

Glenn and his daughter, Diane, were featured as Volunteers of the Month at Project Angel Heart in December of 2015. The organization delivers food to people with life-threatening illnesses. He was 90 at the time.

The Wells Concrete plant in Rosemount, Minn. hosted a group from CNH Architects this week for an up close and personal look at precast concrete production.

Architectural staff viewed precast wall panel mockups outside the facility, before stepping inside to see the long concrete beds and crane operation. Wells was making Double T Beams, and the group learned about the concrete pouring process and cutting functions.

The company offers educational tours on its website.

Toe tapping music from a live band helped keep a team from CNH Architects humming at the Feed My Starving Children South Metro food packing event in Apple Valley on Friday.

The group numbered about a dozen, between staff members and their families. In all, about 3,000 volunteers helped pack 3 million meals for hungry children. More than 20 churches were involved, as well as other civic organizations.

Ziegler CAT Rebuild Center- Bloomington, Minn.

Whether power plants from massive iron ore trucks, train engines, huge landfill engines, transmissions, hubs or differentials, the CNH Architects’ designed Ziegler CAT Rebuild Center is working on them. The major facility in Bloomington, Minnesota was built around an existing outer structure that once housed Anvil, a sprinkler company.

To accommodate a growing number of cremations, construction of the Columbarium Addition at the City of Bloomington Cemetery is well underway.  Curved concrete wall seating has been installed, and the foundations for the columbarium, which will hold the funeral urns, are in progress.  Landscaping should be completed by mid-June, and the columbarium units are scheduled for delivery in early July.  A drawing shows what the final project will look like.
