Schemmer’s Jeff Kulhanek, PE, mechanical engineering manager, and shareholder, was quoted in the December 2019 issue of the Lincoln Business Journal. In an article discussing investments in training future engineers and also how today's projects are positioning Lincoln and the Midlands for sustainable growth and desirable economic vitality.
Investments in Training Future Engineers
The article states that unprecedented investments in Kiewit Hall, a new engineering facility for the College of Engineering at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, will enable faculty to use modern, evidence-based instructional strategies known to increase student learning. There will also be a renovation to the Scott Engineering Center to align with broader state-wide goals outlined in Blueprint Nebraska.
Today's Projects Positioning Lincoln for Sustainable Growth and Economic Vitality
Kulhanek discussed how the "Lincoln market continues to expand and appears to be doing better on average than the rest of the country." However, adding "finding licensed mechanical and electrical engineers in Lincoln continues to be difficult."
Kulhanek said renovations and expansions account for the majority of projects keeping Schemmer busy right now. "Governmental work, whether it be at the state or federal level, constitutes most of the renovation market. Industrial work is dominating the new construction work."
Kulhanek noted Schemmer's large expansion project for Creekstone Farms Beef. The project includes renovations and additions to the existing industrial facility. "Engineering work includes adding a new 1500 BHP boiler and improvements to their hot water system."
