Wayne State College Peterson Fine Arts

Wayne State College Peterson Fine Arts

Contour installed new red oak paneling and trims on the face of the existing stage in the Peterson Fine Arts building at Wayne State College. After we were done with the paneling, we had to install 12 wood louvers, wood moldings above the louvers, and a top cap and apron on the full length of the stage. On the ends of the stage, we installed paneling down the face of a ramp with a wood cap and apron. On the other side of the stage, we did the face of the stairs and installed new stair treads.

Contour Construction Earns Eagle Award for Scoular Renovation Work

Scoular Office Renovation

Scoular Corporate Headquarters

The Scoular corporate headquarters renovation project was an interesting, challenging, and rewarding project that we completed with the help of the general contractor, Sampson Construction. The project Manager for Contour is Adam Daws and our partner at Sampson Construction is Nate Hotovy, who trusted us with his project. The renovation consisted of about 51,000 square feet of office space in the upper three levels with a 17,000 square foot parking garage at the lower level. Contour Construction installed over 5,000 square feet of walnut wood paneling, split between the three office floors.

On every office space floor, the whole center core of the building was wrapped with wood paneling that was book matched and that ran from floor to ceiling with quarter-inch reveals between the panels, and along the wood framed openings. The seams in these panels had to line up with the seams in the glass so we had to work closely with the glass company to accomplish this.

In addition, we had to custom-build multiple door openings with side lights for this project. Some of these sidelight openings were as wide as 15 feet. Furthermore, other scopes of work included casework, bathroom partitions, bath accessories, glass markerboards, doors, and door hardware.

Lost Rail Clubhouse

Lost Rail Clubhouse

Lost Rail Golf Club

Lost Rail is a new private country club located in Gretna, NE. The club has a high emphasis on being about golf and none of the other stuff that comes to mind when you think of a country club, no tennis, swimming, racquetball, etc.

This job was all about the details in every room with emphasis on the stained and painted high-end woodwork. The Lost Rail Clubhouse features large crown molding details along with custom fireplace mantles that make rooms feel warm and cozy. The custom beam details in the entryway, bar and locker room took a great effort to make sure for a seamless installation. The hallway barrel ceiling details make the pathways to the dining room, bar, or locker rooms feel like you’re in a castle of sorts as you make your way through the clubhouse. The locker rooms boast high-end finishes that seem to be out of a magazine that pictures do no justice.

WOWT/Blackstone Plaza Project

WOWT/Blackstone Plaza Project

WOWT/Blackstone Plaza

At the WOWT/Blackstone Plaza job, we have been helping Lueder out with a variety of tasks. On the WOWT side, we built new door frames, installed casing and base, and installed pre-finished wall panels and trim. On the Blackstone Plaza side of the job, we built some door frames, installed the wood blades, and are now installing wall paneling and trim. The wood blades were quite challenging. They are essentially oak beams that run vertically from the floor of the lobby to the ceiling of the second floor. They weigh about 480 pounds apiece and took quite a bit of planning and effort to get set. We will be filling in between the blades with oak paneling and also installing paneling on many of the walls on the first and second floors.

Pacific Springs Townhomes

Pacific Springs Townhomes are on the same property where Contour performed work on the new assisted living/memory care project with Lund-Ross.  There are two townhouses total with 2 units in each townhouse.  One was a remodel of the existing showroom and the other built next door was the ground-up townhouse to match the rest in the community. The townhomes feature full kitchens, 3 beds, 3 baths, finished basements, and 2 car garages. The full Immanuel Pacific Springs campus provides options for apartment living or to have a more independent living style in a townhouse.

Contour’s Scope of Work: Installation of the cabinets, doors, hardware, and trim.

Benthack Hall Interior Architectural Woodwork

Benthack Hall Renovation | Wayne State College

Contour Construction had the pleasure of working with Hausmann Construction on the Benthack Hall project in Wayne, Nebraska. The project was the remodel of the existing Benthack Hall on the Wayne State College campus. Our scope of work included architectural woodwork, doors and hardware, visual display surface, toilet compartments, bath accessories, casework, and wall protections.

Architectural Woodwork

The feature pieces of this project were the wood wall and ceiling features in the hallways. The walls have wood panels that run from floor to ceiling and have a three-fourths inch reveal between the panels. The panels had to be cut to fit around door openings and recessed television niches. The ceiling detail have wood planks that run at 45-degree angles off the wood panel wall. The wood plank also had three-fourths reveal between each piece. The outside perimeter of the ceiling feature was wrapped in eight-inch-tall trim.


We had to install multiple elevations of casework on this project. One of the renovated classrooms was the Foods Lab for teaching Culinary Arts. We had to set six islands of casework, each island consisting of eight base cabinets. At the front of the classroom is the instructor’s demonstration island, which had plastic laminate panels, wrapping a metal-framed wall with base cabinets attached to it.

Toilet Compartments, Bath Accessories

There is one pair of bathrooms on each floor and one unisex bathroom on the first floor. The toilet compartments are a solid-polymer that are mounted to the floor and overhead braced. There are fifteen standard stalls, four handicap stalls, and four urinal screens. We installed grab bars, toilet paper holders, sanitary napkin disposals, recessed paper towel/trash receptacles, and baby changing stations.

Classroom Accessories

The marker boards for the classrooms had three, four-foot-wide by seven-foot-tall boards that had to be assembled with splines and trims. The marker boards are also going to act as the projection screen for the projector, so we had to make sure our seams were flush and even. The tack boards were a custom size, so we had to cut them down to the size needed and then, had to wrap them in an aluminum trim.

St. Wenceslaus Catholic Church glulam beam

St. Wenceslaus Catholic Church

St. Wenceslaus Catholic Church in Omaha, Nebraska, added a 41,398-square-foot addition to the church and a 6,755-square-foot support wing that consists of offices, a kitchen, workroom, and conference rooms.

The ceiling of the main entry featured tongue and groove paneling that would be used in five other ceilings throughout the project, as well as at some wall finishes. Throughout the corridors and narthex rooms, poplar box beams were installed at the ceiling to give it an exposed beam look. Nearly 1,400 lineal feet of varying size box beams were installed throughout the St. Wenceslaus Catholic Church corridors.

The cathedral ceiling stands over 60 feet above the ground and is constructed with a combination of structural steel and exposed Glu-lam beams, the underside of the cathedral ceiling is structural 2×6 tongue and groove roof decking that is exposed. The structural steel beams were clad and wrapped in 2x lumber that was installed in a staggered orientation to give it a detailed and layered appearance. Twenty-five arched openings leading into the ambulatories and feature custom arched trims to match the radius of the openings. Veneered wood paneling above each arch were trimmed out with hardwoods at the perimeters.

Devotional niches and an antiphonal chamber were constructed using veneered plywoods, 1x and 2x trims, and wood grilles to create both walls and ceilings. The reredos, 18 feet wide and 46 feet tall, are covered in a combination of wood paneling, trims, and grilles. The paneling was used to create vertical columns with either veneered paneling or wood grilles placed in between each column from the floor to the top of the reredos. The overall appearance of the reredos creates a wonderful wood feature that also serves as a decorative piece to help conceal some of the organ equipment, all while not compromising the acoustics or function of the organ.
