April 2015, Northern Minn. – Located 40 miles north of Grand Rapids is the SPRUCE experiment. This project aims to observe varying temperature increases and their effects on Spruce trees and other elements within a bog’s habitat. The Oak Ridge National Laboratory compiled a team, including the structural engineers at Krech, O’Brien, Mueller and Associates, Inc. (KOMA) to bring the experiment to life.
In honor of Krech, O’Brien, Mueller & Associates’ (KOMA) 30 year anniversary we asked each of our employees to bring in 30 items for Neighbors Inc. Neighbors Inc. is a non-profit organization located in South St. Paul that assists low-income community members in the surrounding cities of Inver Grove Heights, South St. Paul, West St. Paul, Mendota Heights, Sunfish Lake and Lilydale. Founded by local churches in 1972, the organization relies on 1,500 volunteers to provide services such as a clothes closet, food shelf, holiday services and more. We were pleased to donate 412 pounds to such a wonderful organization that supports our community. More »
