Mosaic Building Solutions Brings New Life to Huntington’s City Services Building

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (May 3, 2016) -- Breaking ground in Huntington this Spring, Mosaic Building Solutions is building a new 20,000-square-foot City Services building.

 

Due to the deteriorating condition of the existing facility, Mosaic began the project by levelling the old City Services building to start anew on the existing site. The new $1.9 million building will serve as an administrative space, as well as place to store and maintain city equipment and vehicles.  

 

Bringing in a team of local construction experts, Mosaic is building a hybrid structure of pre-engineered metal building conventional steel framing / block and joist / and light gauge metal trusses together as one building designed by Barton Coe Vilamaa.

 

“Not only are we adamant on seeking regional projects, but we savor jobs that allow us to bring in a local crew of skilled workers,” Fetters said. “This not only keeps dollars in the region, but it also establishes a point of pride for those living and working in the area.”

 

The new project, that will wrap up in the Fall of 2016, is located at 634 Webster St. in Huntington, Ind.

Industry veterans launch new construction company: Mosaic Building Solutions

Jake Fetters and Steve Park form new firm to design, manage and build

JakeandSteve.jpg

Construction industry veterans Jake Fetters and Steve Park have formed a new breed of construction management company, Mosaic Building Solutions (Mosaic).  

“We wanted to create a new solution that streamlines the process for our clients,” said Jake Fetters, President of Mosaic.  “In a more traditional process you end up dealing with a multitude of vendors, and often that means poor communication, delays and disagreements over budget and vision, which becomes the client’s burden.   We founded Mosaic to do things differently, to maximize their value and uphold their vision.”

Mosaic brings project management, pre-design and the building process all under one roof. 

“From the beginning we want to work with clients, representing and sharing their vision of the final product— to create a plan that prioritizes wants and needs to develop the right solution,” said Steve Park, Vice President Design.  “We then act as ambassadors, overseeing the project from that point forward to ensure everything stays according to plan.”

Mosaic oversees their client’s projects from inception to completion, taking ownership of the project and the myriad of responsibilities that come with it.   

“It’s difficult to assemble just a piece of a project when you do not understand the bigger picture,” said Fetters.  “We want to help with every step, every facet of the project, with an aim at producing results that uphold the client’s vision and budgets. Yes, it’s a new way of thinking; but we firmly believe that this is the future for our industry and is the means of providing the best possible value, and result, for our clients.”

Mosaic Building Solutions commences work immediately with several projects already underway.  They can be reached by phone at, 260.570.6595, by email at jfetters@mosaic-building.com, or at their offices at 1220 Ruston Pass, Fort Wayne, IN 46825.   Those interested in learning more about Mosaic and their capabilities can visit www.mosaic-building.com.
