Allume Architects awarded 2016 Civic Appreciation Award by Wauwatosa Chamber of Commerce

Elm Grove, Wis. – March 18, 2016 – Allume Architects has been awarded the 2016 Civic Appreciation Award by the Wauwatosa Chamber of Commerce. The award was presented by Terry Estness, Executive Director, at the chamber’s annual Community Showcase and Social, held on January 28, 2016, at the Radisson Hotel, 2305 N. Mayfair Road, Wauwatosa, Wis. This is the Wauwatosa Chamber’s largest annual event.

Andrea Nemecek, president of Allume said, “We are humbled and honored to receive this award from the Wauwatosa Chamber and appreciate their recognition of our contributions to the community. Allume’s mission statement is ‘improving the quality of life through architecture,’ and we carry this mantra through with our philosophy of volunteering and charitable donations. My small town upbringing has taught me that if we have the ability to help, then we will step up to do so because our community is our extended family.”

Estness said, “Allume seeks opportunities to not only enhance the lives of those around them through their profession, but also through the firm’s devotion to the Wauwatosa area and its surrounding communities through volunteerism and charitable donations. Andrea Nemecek and Lisa Chang have supported Tosa for Tots and have been actively involved in fundraising and/or volunteering for the Montessori School of Waukesha, Froedtert Hospital, Safe Babies Healthy Families, Impact 100 and others. They truly believe in giving back to their community.”

Allume was launched in 2013 by Andrea Nemecek, licensed Architect in the State of Wisconsin and member of the American Institute of Architects. The name Allume is derived from the root
word allumer, which translates to “the light came on.” The name is reflected in the company’s belief and vision that natural light is essential to human health, well-being, and that great design can improve quality of life. Nemecek understands that successful design is integral to improved business revenue, increased productivity, employee retention, and overall human well-being. These concepts translate over to commercial projects, such as business and corporate offices, manufacturing and warehouse facilities, educational and retail establishments, as well as single-family residential design.
