SCMC would like to thank:

Mathison/Mathison Architects for their vision of the renovation, Erhardt Construction for their professional management of the project and Yvonne Daniels of Daniels Design for her impeccable design direction on many, many items!

There is an army of people to thank for making this makeover such a success but these three companies and their employees spend months of time in the trenches with us!  

We would also like to recognize and thank the members of our committees who made these renovations happen. Many thanks to our Facility Renovation Committee who worked on the renovation project from its inception through its execution and our Gala Honorary Committee.
