Quality Control: People, Process, Tools

Quality Control: People, Process, Tools

Quality control is a critical element in the design process. It is the difference between a smooth building process and one fraught with change orders and issues in the field. Recently, Ruhnau Ruhnau Clarke celebrated a rare achievement- submitting a set of drawings to the Division of the State Architect (DSA) for review and receiving 0 comments. 

Welcome to 2017

Welcome to 2017

New Year, New Beginnings

This year will be the biggest growth period that Ruhnau Ruhnau Clarke has ever experienced. We are excited to share one aspect of our growth, our new office!

Starting in early 2016, we began working on a massive renovation of our existing office building to transform it into an engaging and modern workplace. 

 

With a prime location on 10th and Market Street, the new Ruhnau Ruhnau Clarke office has the opportunity to add to the urban fabric of downtown Riverside.

Jennifer Nguyen to be featured as a West Elm Local Artist

Jennifer Nguyen’s bubbly personality far exceeds her small stature. At Ruhnau Clarke Architects, we’ve long admired the spirit she brings to the firm as well as her artistic talents outside of Architecture. Now, others are taking notice too.

 

This Summer Jennifer’s water color paintings will be featured as part of West Elm Local’s artist program. The home goods retailer, owned by William Sonoma Inc., gives local artists the opportunity to sell their creations in local stores and, if they generate enough interest, will make their goods available in their catalogue and online nationwide.

 

“I’m extremely excited, overwhelmed and tickled by the fact that this is all happening so fast!”
- Jennifer Nguyen

This exciting opportunity comes on the heels of Jennifer’s recent art exhibitions at Rok House Brewery in Upland, CA and with the Riverside Community Arts Association. Jennifer’s first “Le Petit Fox” pop up shop for West Elm Local will debut at West Elm San Diego, July 23 from 11-3pm.
