Cleveland’s Public Square Renovation is completed!

Thursday, July 14th, 2016

Cleveland’s Public Square re-opened to the public on June 30.

Landscape architect James Corner designed the $50 million project, which was completed in time for the upcoming Republican National Convention.

Prior to the renovation, Public Square was primarily a bus terminal with historic monuments and memorials. The 15-month project has turned the 10-acre space into a more unified space with new landscaping, flower beds, space for art installations and much more.

30 year Anniversary of Chernobyl Nuclear Accident

Monday, April 18th, 2016

We’re coming up on the 30th anniversary of the Chernobyl Accident.

Tucker Elliott worked briefly on the sarcophagus stabilization project, but thankfully never had to go there. The photo is of the nuclear fuel that melted onto the operating floor like a lava flow. The person in the photo actually survived, but you reached your lifetime exposure limit in 40 seconds!

VN Services holds Annual Renewal

Thursday, April 14th, 2016

Renewal 2016  Every business gets caught up in the constant frenetic state of focusing on day-to-day challenges, meeting deadlines and finding yourself not moving forward on the goals that you have set for individuals and the company at large.

VN Services recognizes that it is essential to stop the daily hustle and take the time to regroup for the overall mental and financial health of our company.

So each year, we leave the office for 2 days and assess the past year, set personal and company goals (with an action plan) and then spend an afternoon doing something relaxing and fun.

Each year our renewal becomes more valuable, and our commitment to following through becomes a more natural part of our work activities.

We highly recommend that all businesses make this an important part of your year.
