Nurture Gathers Testimonials from Revit “Super-Users”

Nurture by Steelcase recently released an article called How Do You Use Revit? Testimonials from Revit "Super-Users" about the use of Revit as today's top Architecture and Design tool. A leader in Healthcare Furnishings, Nurture has recently produced 3D Revit models of their entire catalog, making it much easier for architecture firms (such as MHAworks) to create a space using their products.

Nurture highlights Jennifer Turner, the Director of Interior Design at MHAworks, as a major user of Revit over the past 11yrs. “Using Revit models and families from Nurture has saved us time,” Jennifer said, “by allowing us to simply download the model, add it to our library and place it in our project. This enables us to easily change materials in our models and render a finished image in a shorter amount of time.”

Ron-A-Thon 5K and the Red Nose Fun Run!

"Runners pounded the pavement in uptown Greenville today for the second annual Ron-A-Thon 5K Run.
Eastern North Carolina's Ronald McDonald House sponsored the event with the help of ECU sororities and fraternities.

Nearly 140 people participated in the 5-k race and 20 people ran the Red Nose Fun Run -- one mile course created for casual walkers and kids.

All proceeds will go to help the local Ronald McDonald House, which is a national organization that gives families with seriously ill children a place to live while the child receives medical treatment at a nearby hospital.

'We're hoping to raise about $4,000,' said Cathy Ahlschlager, the community outreach director for the Ronald McDonald House. 'Of which every penny of that is going to stay locally to help families of Eastern North Carolina that need to come to the Ronald McDonald House when they have a child that needs medical treatment.'

In the past 25 years, the Ronald McDonald House of Eastern North Carolina has served nearly 25,000 families in need."

MHAworks was there, red noses and all, to run in the 5K and support the Ronald McDonald House of Greenville!
