The new guest journey white paper
Hospitality is the art of curating guest emotion. Its foundation is trust, earned by brands and reinforced through design. The global pandemic has compromised this trust relationship, making travelers uneasy in public spaces and suspicious in private ones. It has challenged the traditional model of hospitality amenities and the sequence of events in the guest experience.

Education Village begins construction at Winona State University, Minnesota, United States

LEO A DALY transforms three former school buildings into a state-of-the-art mini-campus for teacher training

Winona, MN – Construction is underway on Education Village, a state-of-the-art mini-campus for teacher education at Winona State University in Winona, Minnesota. The $25.2 million project repurposes three former school buildings, creating a new section of campus and home of the College of Education.

Education Village at Winona State University design by LEO A DALY Architects

Designed by LEO A DALY, Education Village carves a cohesive identity out of three school buildings from different eras, retrofitting them with cutting-edge learning spaces while retaining their historic integrity. The 100,000 square-foot project will allow future teachers to train in the internationally recognized Winona Model, which focuses on early clinical experiences in real-world situations.

The design creates a spectrum of learning environments that embody the history of American education, ranging from fully historic classrooms with blackboards, to the most advanced, technology-enabled active-learning classrooms, STEM labs, maker spaces, and special-education classrooms.

Education Village Winona State University building

“Education Village is a place for birth-to-100 learning, where history, technology, and real-world experience come together to develop innovative teachers,” said Joe Bower, senior architect in LEO A DALY’s Minneapolis office. “By placing a diversity of learning environments into a range of different building contexts, the design helps prepare future teachers for anything they will encounter in professional life.”

“Education Village is a leap forward for teacher education in the state of Minnesota. It will empower pedagogy change agents, and create a corps of new teachers who will help school districts innovate and face the educational needs of tomorrow,” said Dr. Tarrell Portman, Dean of the College of Education.

Wabasha Hall, the new main hub of Education Village, will function as a learning lab and gathering place, with a large atrium addition, as well as experimental classrooms, a child-care center, counselor-education facilities, and breakout spaces for group work. Wabasha Rec, a former gym, will house physical-education and adaptive-sports teaching programs. Cathedral School, a historic schoolhouse built in 1929, will preserve low-tech classrooms relevant to the current spectrum of American schools, and house post-graduate teacher-development functions, administrative offices, and the dean’s suite.
Construction by general contractor Kraus-Anderson is expected to complete in time for the Fall 2019 school semester.

Founded in 1858, Winona State University is a comprehensive, regional public university with approximately 8,000 students on campuses in Winona and Rochester. The oldest member of the Minnesota State system, WSU offers more than 80 undergraduate, pre-professional, licensure, graduate and doctorate programs in five colleges: Business, Education, Liberal Arts, Nursing & Health Sciences, and Science & Engineering.

Minnesota Fallen Firefighter Memorial, USA

Families of Firefighters who died in the Line of Duty Break Ground for the Minnesota Fallen Firefighter Memorial.

MINNEAPOLIS – July, 2012 — Families of Minnesota firefighters who died in the line of duty, statewide fire officials, legislators and representatives from memorial designer LEO A DALY broke ground for the Minnesota Fallen Firefighter Memorial in a solemn ceremony at the State Capitol on July 13. Construction will continue throughout the summer, with a dedication ceremony to unveil the new memorial scheduled for Sept. 30, 2012, Minnesota’s newly designated Fallen Firefighters Memorial Day.

Minnesota Commissioner of Public Safety Mona Dohman joined family members at the event, including:

• Kristi McCormick, a Hibbing fire equipment operator/paramedic and the granddaughter of Chauncey Pettinelli (from Virginia, Minn.), who died June 16, 1958;

• Brandon Hollingsworth, a Brooklyn Park firefighter and son of Thomas K. Hollingsworth (from Robbinsdale), who died Jan. 17, 1984

• Jack Zilliox, a retired Saint Paul Fire Captain and son of John Zilliox (from Saint Paul), who died Nov. 25, 1973;

• Linda Delude, widow of Barry Delude (from Minneapolis), who died Feb. 13, 2007; and

• Juanita Rosa, granddaughter of John Harmon (from Renville), who died May 22, 1921.

Since 1881, 208 Minnesota firefighters have died in the line of duty. In 2011, the Minnesota Fire Service Foundation launched an initiative to create a larger, more accessible and interactive memorial on the grounds of the State Capitol to give families, friends, co-workers and community members a permanent location to pay tribute to these men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice.

LEO A DALY is providing design, project management and cost estimation services to create the new memorial while Westwood Professional Services is responsible for survey and civil engineering. The firms are partnering on a pro-bono basis with the Minnesota Fire Service Foundation.

To pay for some additional construction costs and minor expenses for the Sept. 30 dedication ceremony, the Minnesota Fire Service Foundation is working to raise the final $80,000 over the next few months. There is still time to contribute to the cause: Financial contributions to the Minnesota State Firefighter Memorial fundraising effort can be sent to: Minnesota Fire Service Foundation c/o Flagship Bank, 7525 Office Ridge Road, Eden Prairie, MN 55344-3644.

Online contributions can be made at: www.mnfireservicefoundation.org. All contributions are tax deductible. Donations exceeding the goal will fund educational scholarships for children of active, retired or deceased firefighters, and for spouses of deceased firefighters.

“This has been a joint effort between firefighters, the business community and the public,” said Martin Scheerer, Past President of the Minnesota State Fire Chiefs Association. “We’ve seen support pour in from all across Minnesota, and we’re particularly proud of the way many of the fire departments across the state have contributed to this important effort.

State of Minnesota Selects LEO A DALY to Design New Minnesota Fallen Firefighters Memorial

(MINNEAPOLIS – March 06, 2012) The state of Minnesota has selected international architecture, planning, engineering, interior design and program management firm LEO A DALY to design the new Minnesota Fallen Firefighters Memorial on the State Capitol grounds to honor the sacrifice of Minnesota firefighters killed in the line of duty.

“We are proud to collaborate with the Minnesota Fire Service Foundation to design a memorial that pays homage to our firefighters and recognizes their extraordinary sacrifice to our community,” said LEO A DALY Minneapolis Managing Principal Ted Redmond, AIA.

The approximately 6,000-square-foot memorial incorporates several distinctive design features within a landscaped garden and paved assembly area. The main focal point is a large monolith supported by a grid of steel columns that houses the Minnesota Fire Service Memorial Statue. This bronze, figurative sculpture of a firefighter rescuing a child, which is currently on display at the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport, is lit by natural light through a circular void in the monolith.

The monolith is made of weathering steel, which over time rusts to form a protective coating – a process analogous to the oxidation of fire. The organizing grid of 100 potential pavilion columns embodies a repeating century of years – 10 decades by 10 years per decade. Currently, an incomplete constellation of 83 columns are mapped on the grid, recording the years in which Minnesota firefighters have died in the line of duty. The names of each of Minnesota’s fallen firefighters are inscribed on the columns. The design allows for new columns to be added onto the grid for additional inscriptions in the future.

Also, the memorial ground rises to present approaching visitors with a wall inscribed with names of the 791 fire departments throughout the state. The site’s landscaped garden and paved area provides a space for quiet reflection and contemplation, and also serves as the ceremonial location for large annual memorial services.

“We want to provide a meaningful experience to family, friends and community members who visit to pay their tributes,” said Glenn Waguespack, LEO A DALY’s lead designer on the project. “So the design incorporates evocative symbols of firefighters in every aspect of the memorial.”

Construction of the $500,000 memorial, which was completely funded by Minnesota’s firefighters, will begin in May 2012 and completed by September 2012.

LEO A DALY Opens New Office in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

Jay N. Kline, Regional Manager – Saudi Arabia, To Lead Office

(WASHINGTON – March 06, 2012) International architecture, planning, engineering, interior design and program management firm LEO A DALY opens a new office in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The new office, which is the second office opened by the firm in the Middle East in recent years, will focus on infrastructure, housing, healthcare and education markets.

“Saudi Arabia is a fast-growing economy and is investing in its infrastructure, hospitals and universities,” said LEO A DALY executive vice president Charles Dalluge. “We have worked with Saudi clients on a diverse portfolio of large-scale projects since the 1970s, and we believe opening this regional office will help us play a significant role in fulfilling the country’s needs.”

Jay N. Kline, regional manager – Saudi Arabia, will lead the office in close collaboration with Ross Ensor, the firm’s corporate international director, to build prospective and existing client relationships, identify new project opportunities, and coordinate the firm’s projects in the country. Since joining LEO A DALY in 2008, Kline has primarily focused on the firm’s federal projects, serving clients such as the Department of Defense, Department of Veterans Affairs, Department of Homeland Security and the General Services Administration.

His responsibilities included managing clients, developing pursuit strategies, overseeing proposal writing processes and preparing project interviews. Prior to joining LEO A DALY, Kline worked in a variety of sales and marketing positions within a wide range of industries, including fine jewelry, real estate and entertainment.

“Representing the firm in Saudi Arabia is an honor and I am looking forward to this challenge,” said Kline. “I lived in the Middle East as a youth and am therefore familiar and comfortable with the Arab people and culture. I will be striving to build strong and sustainable relationships with our clients in the next few years.”

Kline studied international studies with a specialization in international business and management at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO). During his studies, he was awarded the Nene Field Ambassador Scholarship which sent him to the University Of Helsinki School Of Economics in Mikkeli, Finland to represent UNO’s international studies program. Recently, he received the Young Member Medal award from the Society of American Military Engineers, Omaha Post, for his work as the co-chair of its programs committee.

The opening of the Riyadh office marks the eighth international location for LEO A DALY, which also has offices in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates; Beijing; Hong Kong; Benghazi, Libya; Istanbul, Turkey; Moscow; and Tripoli, Libya.
