“We drink beer like it’s our job” is the motto at 9th Street Public House, a drinking establishment in the heart of downtown Columbia. The light-filled bar’s rustic vibe features reclaimed wood, comfy leather chairs and a vintage jukebox.
Hercon Construction was awarded a multi-million-dollar contract for construction of retail outlet buildings for the Kroenke Group. The project included Panera, Clarkson Eyecare, Little Caesars and Freddy’s at Broadway Marketplace and Gap and Pancheros at the Stadium Shoppes. In additions, Hercon remodelled a building for Jo-Ann Fabrics on Grindstone Parkway.
When the 62,000-square-foot Toastmaster factory building became available, Columbia Independent School board members saw a near-perfect fit for their growing school. Working on an incredibly tight schedule, Hercon began work on the $1.7 million project in April. The job was finished in time for school to start in August. CIS parents invested sweat equity in the project, taking apart hundreds of office cubicles and pulling up thousands of square feet of carpet tiles to get the building ready for renovation. They filled 10 semi-trailers with Toastmaster desks, filing cabinets, computers and office equipment, much of which was repurposed by the school..
Flyover, one of Columbia’s most popular restaurants, is a dream a long time in the making for chef Adam Wells-Morgan and bartender Dan Dethrow. Their restaurant proudly celebrates the Midwest with locally sourced food served from Columbia’s only wood-fired oven and a bar featuring carefully crafted cocktails and Midwest beers, wines and liquors.
Located in the Shoppes at Stadium, Dermistique Face & Body pampers clients with a serene, spa-like ambience. Using top-of-the-line finishings, Hercon renovated the existing space to create six private treatment and tanning rooms, a break room, large waiting area, and manicure and pedicure stations.
Good for the farmer, good for the land, and good for us all. That’s the philosophy behind Barred Owl Butcher & Table, a restaurant that brings flavorful fare to the Columbia community, while providing local farmers an outlet for the food they raise.
Purpose-built as a luxury bed and breakfast inn, this elegant Queen Anne-style home pampers guests with modern-day conveniences amid Victorian charm. The main floor has beautifully appointed common areas where guests can gather and a spacious professional kitchen, designed to accommodate cooking classes and culinary events. There are four upstairs guest rooms with large private baths. The lower level has a private 900-square-foot owner’s apartment. Hercon delivered the top-quality finishes we were looking for in our Queen Anne B&B. —Mary Schlueter
Hercon was proud to bring Columbia its first Jersey Mike’s sub shop. The iconic brand, which started in 1956 on the Jersey shore, introduced American to a new food experience — the submarine sandwich. Hercon owner Jeff Herigon attended national training to become a certified Jersey Mike’s contractor. Hercon builders were very pleasant to work with and very informative throughout the process, so there were no bad surprises. They also stayed on budget—a huge plus! —Sterling Sublett, owner
