Our client was converting 2320 square feet of old retail space into a new restaurant and a fast six week schedule was critical to get the space
demoed, renovated, and open for business.
Over Easy serves Midwestern scratch kitchen, comfort food with a contemporary flare. Menu items (breakfast and lunch) include the waffle dog -- consisting of two sausage links on sticks that are dipped in vanilla waffle batter and cooked -- four types of avocado toast, Hawaiian-inspired favorite Loko Moko, chilaquiles and of course, the classics: pancakes, eggs of all varieties, waffles, breakfast burritos, house-brewed coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice, a hallmark of Over Easy.
The first Over Easy became so popular that it caught the attention of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives host Guy Fieri, and was later featured on Food Network’s “Best Thing I Ever Ate” as well as TLC’s “Best Food Ever,”

The Little Telescope That Could
A special dedication and acknowledgment was held at CCC to honor those that were instrumental in making the CCC Observatory project a reality and to celebrate its completion.
Retired astronomer and long-time CCC District Governing Board Member Dr. Nathaniel (Nat) White said at the dedication that the story of the DIMM Telescope donated to the College in 2008 by the Naval Observatory Flagstaff Station (NOFS) could be the a children's book titled the "little telescope that could."
The story would be about a retiring telescope that was of great service to the country, and now needed a new home. Recognizing the telescope's value, Dr. White knew that it would be great tool for future generations of students studying astronomy at CCC.
With Dr. White's encouragement, the telescope valued at $133,000 was donated to CCC. Although the telescope now had a home, it still needed an observatory, so the story continued.
Through the hard work of the foundation staff and board under the direction of retired Director Bob Erb and past foundation President Chris Bavasi, a private foundation called the Kemper and Ethel Marley Foundation agreed to fund the cost of the building, needed parts and labor to build the observatory. Director of Facilities at CCC Mark Easton and his team supervised the project Hunter Building Group, Flagstaff was the General Contractor.
Local Juicery at Aspen Place
This 1500 square foot Tenant Improvement projects marks the company’s expansion into the Flagstaff Market. Local Juicery wanted a clean, bright environment that represents the healthy, all organic, freshly made foods and juices made for their clients.
The client of this 1,550 square foot, tenant build out project had outgrown their existing space and needed more room to grow and to better service their clients. Their goals were to create a functioning, welcoming and warm environment, all while minimally disturbing nearby tenants. All this was accomplished by combining some existing finishes with new finishes and construction techniques that limited noise, dust and debris.
Our Client was moving from an existing retail space and opening a new market that would improve service and offer a wider selection of premium goods to their customers. Timing was critical for this venture as well as the quality of the finishes used to create a warm, upscale, modern marketplace. The project combined a retail space, full bar area, outdoor patio seating and extensive walk-in coolers, all with the utmost attention to detail which creates a welcoming environment for all to enjoy.
These new 4-Plex apartments with ground floor garages and 2 floors of living space are located in the densely built neighborhood of historic Flagstaff Township, just west of downtown.
Construction required strategic demolition of existing structures, existing utility relocation and extensive coordination during the construction phase.
Each individual 2-story apartment has an expansive entry deck, personal garage and laundry and incredible views of the San Francisco Peaks.
