What's New at Sands Decker

National Veteran’s Memorial and Museum

Sands Decker CPS provided Surveying and Construction verification for the National Veteran’s Memorial and Museum (NVMM) project. Tony Sheck, P.S. has been deeply connected with this amazing project since the beginning of construction.

In the Columbus Dispatch video you can see Tony at work (1:10 min. into the video) and see some of the progress the construction team has made. Note that the building has not one straight line in any of the inner, intermediate, and outside rings. Also note the many openings throughout the concrete structure. Architectural Digest said "The National Veterans Memorial and Museum is beautifully understated, honoring the country's veterans in an appropriately somber manner. Indeed, much like the people it's honoring, the structure has a dignified form that appears to be organically grown from the ground." Architectural Digest gave the NVMM national prominence as “One of the 12 most anticipated Buildings of 2018.”

This is an incredibly important structure for the Columbus area and the region. It will stand for many, many years, providing a true memorial to the Veterans of our county.
