Clockwork is honored by the recent recognition for our thoughtful design. We have graciously been presented with two major design awards; The Moosehead Dover-Foxtrot Mill received 2015 statewide Historic Preservation Honor Award for Stewardship; Baxter Springs Senior Residences received the 2015 Ad Astra award for Excellence in Innovation and Community Development.
The Moosehead Manufacturing Company, with the support of the Town of Dover-Foxcroft requested our help to explore the redevelopment of its former mill site, located at 5 East Main Street. The property consists of 80,000 sf on approximately 1.5 acres. It is bordered on the east and south by the Piscataquis River (with approximately 850’ of river frontage), Main Street to the north, and residential properties to the west.
The project leveraged historic tax credits and numerous other private and public funds to create a rich mixed use solution anchored by multi-family residential. The project is under construction and has become the anchor for a rejuvenation of town center.
Baxter Springs Senior Residences is a historic adaptive reuse project, converting the original Baxter Springs High School into 28 affordable apartments for adults 55 and older. The local Baxter community is delighted to have this historic building thoughtfully reimagined, carefully renovated and remain a prominent landmark in their community. The facility opens this November and we are eager to see the response to its new residents.
For Clockwork, it’s not about the award; it’s about measuring real metrics of the powerful impact good design has on communities. We do not design for design sake; we design with the next 15-20 years in mind – understanding how our design will function successfully and influence community growth.
While it does not take an award to know our impact is positive, it is encouraging to know all the hard work we put into listening intently to our partners and being laser focused on design details, really does translate into successful projects. This is what design is all about! Thank you, to our communities for trusting Clockwork, we are so proud.

Clockwork designers Kirk Chonis and Daniel Umscheid have been working diligently designing the new Royals Stadium Craft Beer Bar just in time for opening day. The Craft & Draft new concept will take the place of the existing 390 club. The bar will include tiered bench seating, quick fired pizza and 75 brew varieties sponsored by local Boulevard Brewery.
A special thank you to the Kansas City Royals for bringing Clockwork in on this beautiful new concept. Be sure to check out the view from this newly renovated space on opening day at the K and tell us about your experience.
As part of our 10 For 10 campaign we visited the Halo Foundation workshop. We spent the evening helping Halo teens create personal resumes. This was the first of many volunteer hours we have planned with the Halo youth.
If you're interested in getting involved, Halo is always looking for solid leaders to make an positive impact on their youth. Click here for more information.
