The Story

A lot has changed since Sundt was founded, but over the last century and a quarter we have adhered consistently to the following truth: when we focus on the success of our customers and our communities, when the assets of our organization and the energy of our employee-owners is devoted to rising to the challenge of our customers’ projects, the world changes for the better. We thrive on the challenge of turning your dreams into reality.
A CELEBRATION OF TRANSFORMATION

The 125 isn’t just an anniversary; it’s a celebration of the transformation of the built environment. What better way to mark the occasion than to document this transformation and share it with our customers, employees and partners? That’s what we have done with “The 125.”

 

The book is organized into five chapters: Precision, Movement, Inspiration, Environment and Beyond. From a lunar launch pad to a linear accelerator, a top secret embassy in Moscow to a first-of-its-kind bridge in Texas, each story in The 125 centers around a vision, a challenge and a creative solution. Many are iconic projects that have transformed communities and shaped skylines, such as the Reunion Tower building core in Dallas, Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, London Bridge in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, and several others.

 

Meet the university and community college students who helped design “The 125,” and who won scholarships for their creativity and hard work.

THE STUDENTS

Hannah McLean

I am a senior graphic design student at Arizona State University. I love strategic design and believe that design can improve people’s lives and make the world better. I also love a good book, a warm cup of green tea, and my two cats curled up at my feet. I approached this process by looking for cues and inspiration from the projects.

Bernardo Teran

I am in my final year in the School of Architecture at the University of Arizona. I am originally from the small border town of Douglas, Arizona, and I was often encouraged to carry my large sketchbooks and graphite with me everywhere. I plan on becoming a licensed and practicing architect and attending graduate school in the near future.

Aimee Garza

I have been lucky enough to grow up in the beautifully diverse Bay Area of California. I am pursuing two Associate Degrees in graphic arts/computer graphics and multimedia. Additionally, I am a mother of three boys, whom I hope to inspire and teach to never give up and to always chase their dreams. My design was initially inspired by the magnificent architecture throughout Sundt’s history.

Mark Small

Mark holds a Bachelor of Science in visual communication from The Design School at Arizona State University and specializes in the fields of print design, branding, corporate identity and web design. Being inspired by Sundt and the principles of construction for this design solution, the relationship between the forces of structure and form drove the creative process.

Lydia Hreniuc

I am currently studying as a second year Master of Architecture student at the University of Arizona. Prior to moving to Tucson I received a bachelor’s degree in architecture from Arizona State University. For this design, I sought to capture Sundt’s mission as a company, which is constantly seeking to push the boundaries of construction while also staying true to its core values.
