Cushwa Brewing Company

The + was working with the end user and design team to adapt the existing floor to meet the operational needs of the client resulting in lower costs and a shorter timeline.  

KasCon collaborated with the Cushwa Brewing Company and Rad Pies to build a new taproom and pizza kitchen in Columbia, MD. This project showcases exposed concrete floors, natural white oak accents, floating cloud ceilings and new light fixtures managed by a new Bluetooth wireless mesh lighting control system. It also features a new stainless-steel beer tap system (up to forty-four beer taps), banquette seating and hand-painted murals to complete the upscale look. KasCon was engaged by the owner to shorten the construction schedule and reduce costs.  The new Cushwa Taproom and Pizza Kitchen will provide a source of food, drink and entertainment for the local community to enjoy for years to come.

University of Maryland – Vascular Surgery Center

The + was supporting a full redesign (design/build) including value engineering, all while keeping the project on schedule. 

KasCon provided all new mechanical, electrical and plumbing as well as base structural slab to this building shell transforming it into a full medical office and exam space with two procedure rooms and post-op areasHighend finishes and unique design features were used to elevate the space for University of Maryland – Vascular Surgery Center in Largo, MD.  The project required heavy coordination with third party inspection, building management and utility companies

CAO: Potomac Valley Orthopaedic Associates – Columbia (Old Dobbin Ln.)

The + was leveraging past client knowledge from previous projects to deliver on specific client requirements in a seamless and efficient manner.

KasCon’s latest project for The Centers for Advanced Orthopaedics was a new 9,000 square foot physical therapy and medical office facility, Potomac Valley Orthopedics, in Columbia, MD.   The project involved merging two former typical office suites into one larger suite outfitting it with a gym, medical office space and examination rooms, and x-ray capabilities. The medical office showcases an inviting reception area, examination rooms and two procedure rooms with lead-lined partitions, doors and windows to allow for x-ray accommodations. In addition to the medical offices, the open gym area where physical therapy takes place, showcases a mixture of painted metal deck ceiling, floating acoustical cloud ceilings, quartz reception desks, seamless flooring, and exposed ductwork. This new facility is a welcome addition to the local community. KasCon has been asked to collaborate on future projects.

Goodwill – The Excel Center

The + was partnering closely with a non-profit organization to successfully navigate a challenging project with a tight schedule.

Goodwill selected KasCon to renovate its turn-of-the-century Baltimore office building into The Excel Center, a high school for adults.  The work was performed on eight floors and included demolition, reconstruction, mechanical and electrical system upgrades, and a complete overhaul of finishes throughout.  Work was performed on a tight city site with no staging space and difficult access. An aggressive completion goal and select imported products made for a challenging schedule.

CAO: Bay Area Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine

The + was involving all stakeholders early in the project to avoid any design or construction issues and enable a seamless transition from the previous location to the new one.

This 12,000 sq.ft. project included a complete demo and build-out for a new state-of-the-art orthopaedic and sports medicine center in Hanover, MD. The build-out included three imaging rooms, multiple exam rooms and office space as well as a complete physical therapy space with treatment tables and gym equipment so patients can continue treatment within the same facility.


The Butchers Club of Maple Lawn

The + was collaborating with the design team to deliver custom (non-standard) features and high-end finishes while working seamlessly around occupied tenants in a high-traffic retail area.

In this full-space renovation, KasCon transformed a sub shop into a high-end butcher shop and club.  This project included full demolition, a completely new kitchen and equipment, display cases, preparation area, electrical gear, HVAC, plumbing/fixtures, and restrooms. The high-end look required  boutique lighting, custom signage and art, high-end finishes and millwork, as well as custom retail shelving and merchandising areas.


MedStar Health: Urgent Care at Ballston

The + was navigating through many scheduling obstacles to open the space on time to service the incoming student body at Marymount University.

This interior fit out project included complete demolition of a 3304 sq. ft. formal café transforming the space into a new, clean and modern urgent care facility with easy access from street level and from the building garage. The space features a  reception/check-in area and waiting room, six private exam rooms, an x-ray room, lab area and new single-use restrooms. The combination of modern finishes (flooring, high ceilings, bright lighting) and accent colors create not only a fresh clean look but a sense of warmth to the space. 

Warrior Academy of Gymnastics

The + was KasCon leading the design/build including all planning stages of the project, helping to keep the budget in line with expectations.

This project was a full design/build where we provided budget planning costs in the beginning stages to help bring the project to life. Hiring and effectively managing the design team allowed us to streamline the permit process and obtain the permit more quickly than is typical in Anne Arundel County. We transformed a former production warehouse into a multi-functional gymnastics facility with a new waiting area, gang restrooms, and staff/break/administration areas (inclusive of all new MEP and finishes).  The gym area has an open concept design where we installed a recessed trampoline pit and recessed foam pits with varying depths ranging from 2’ – 12’.  In addition, we worked closely with the landlord to bring the façade and parking lot up to required status, inclusive of ADA upgrades.

Frisco Taphouse

The + was leading this complex design/build project with several design teams towards delivering a single client vision.

KasCon converted a retail storage warehouse (19,000 SF) into a one-of-a-kind brewery, restaurant and entertainment venue for longtime customer Frisco Taphouse. KasCon has worked with Frisco on four locations. For this latest project,  we coordinated with BGE on building upgrades for gas and electric with the space requiring completely new mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems. The project used high-end bar finishes and live-edge wood throughout, as well as a state-of-the-art video wall complete with a stage with sound and lighting in the concert area.  Custom lighting, tile, glass, wall graphics, wood, AV and sound proofing features were installed.  The space included three full bars, a commercial kitchen, and a brewery (20 bbl system).  KasCon coordinated all kitchen and brewery equipment as well as the associated component installations. We built a new exterior, elevated concrete patio, complete with custom rail and drink ledge features as well as fire pits and full tree tables (weighing over eight tons each), as well as new ADA sidewalk systems.  Substantial structural improvements were required for the slab and the roof.

Clarks Ace Hardware

The + was developing a creative and aggressive schedule that allowed the client to set up their retail aisles as each section was completed in order to meet a hard store opening date.

This interior/exterior renovation project utilized a design-build approach. Early in the project’s life cycle, meetings were held to understand Clarks Ace Hardware’s vision. KasCon then interviewed and hired the design team. The project itself showcased a new storefront entry vestibule with glass wall features, a vibrant showroom with painted open ceilings, a new exterior fenced-in area for propane distribution and a new 30-ton HVAC rooftop unit. KasCon worked hand-in-hand with the Ace Hardware corporate headquarters to enable new flooring, lighting and aisle racking to be installed simultaneously and section by section, which allowed Clarks Ace Hardware to open their store in time for their Labor Day deadline.
