Mike Coates Construction Company's detailed brickwork adds class to Robert G. Hyre Community Learning Center
01/20/2012 - 19:00

 A special 8-page spotlight on the Robert G. Hyre Community Learning Center appears in the December issue of Properties Magazine.

Mike Coates Construction Company was the general contractor of this U-Shaped school designed by TC Architects. The school commands a stately presence with traditional architectural elements – detailed red brick, low gabled rooflines and decorative stone coursings and caps – while incorporating spacious, modern learning areas to accommodate today’s technology and security needs.
 
The challenge was the intricacy of the masonry detail, according to Mike Coates Sr., president of Mike Coates Construction.  The brickwork, self-performed by the company includes details such as peaked cast stone copings, brick quoins, parapets, roof caps and radius walls constructed using bricks of multiple sizes and colors, as well as architectural pre-cast. A variety of bond types and patterns added another element of complexity.
 
“The community loves it, the teachers love it and the students love it,” said Principal Cynthia Wilhite. “We couldn’t ask for anything more.”

Mike Coates Construction incorporated many "green features" within the building including materials with low volatile organic compounds (VOC) and automatic shutoff lights. The HVAC is geothermal, providing energy efficiency. “It’s the dawn of a new era,” says William Ryser, the high school principal, noting that the new building enhances the learning environment, is energy efficient and has more amenities than the previous building for junior and senior high school. “It’s an unprecedented opportunity for this community, for the kids to have an opportunity to learn in an environment like this.”Joseph Jeswald, school superintendent, a 35-year veteran of the district. is encouraged by the fact that the school has already achieved high marks by the state. He further noted that the high school was recognized by U.S. News & World Report magazine as one of the nation’s best schools for providing opportunity in secondary education.

01/20/2012 - 18:01

 A special 4-page spotlight on this YWCA Renovation project appeared in the March issue of Properties Magazine.

Although a strategic plan for a repair and restoration project had been developed in the mid-1990s, it wasn’t until 2007 that funding allowed for the vision to become a reality. BSHM and Mike Coates Construction came on board for phase one of the project, which included demolishing the swimming pool and reconfiguring the apartment units. Phase two involved restoration of the main areas of the building and carving out new office spaces and an enhanced childcare area.

"Take Your Dog to Work Day" was a Big Day for "Mac" at Mike Coates Construction Company
08/06/2009 - 15:21

"Mac" Coates was included in the news on local television and newspapers representing the "Take Your Dog to Work Day". Every morning, “Mac” listens for the sound of the keys to signal that it's time to get into the car and to go to work.  This 40 lb. Keeshond loves his car ride and spending the day at Mike Coates Construction Company in Niles, Ohio.  Mac works the same amount of hours as his master, Mike Coates, Jr., vice-president of the company, and is responsible for guarding the office, keeping employee morale in check, and greeting visitors.  And, he is more than happy to do all this for a couple treats, lunch, and a few “atta boys”.  The almost silent partner is a joy for many in the office who have grown attached to him and enjoy petting him from time to time throughout the day.  Mac is known by many vendors, employees and delivery personnel who are used to seeing him trot down the hall to greet them on their visits to the office.

Mac resides in Niles with family members Mike, Mary Ann, Michael and Aaron. Besides going to work, Mac, an AKC champion, enjoys competing at dog shows, agility training, getting his hair combed, and an occasional game of fetch. Keeshonds are known to be very playful and make great family pets.  Mac is one of the "lucky dogs" who doesn't have to wait for June 26 to go to work with his owner! Take Your Dog To Work Day was created in 1999 to celebrate the great companions dogs make and to encourage their adoption from humane societies, animal shelters, and breed rescue clubs. This annual event encourages employers to experience the value of pets in their workplace for this one special day while promoting pet adoptions. On June 26, businesses, animal shelters and pet-care professionals from around the world will work together to better the lives of shelter dogs everywhere. 

Thousands of businesses open their doors to employees’ pets on this day in celebration of the great companions dogs make.  Pet Sitters International encourages business to join in and celebrate a decade of "working" dogs! Visit takeyourdog.com. or petsitters.org for more information
