Downtown North Topeka (NOTO) was a blighted, decaying, concrete jungle until very recently when the people and businesses on North Kansas Ave. embarked on a mission to revive the district through grit, hard work, and art. Today, you will see signs of a vibrant, lively arts district. Redbud Park is the feather in the cap.

As a North Topeka company, we were thrilled and honored to help turn an old industrial parking lot and mechanic shop into a sculpture park and event venue. The work included tearing the shop down to bare structure and rebuilding into a beautiful event space, complete with new restrooms and kitchenette underneath a custom mezzanine with spiral staircase and rails, and a performing stage. The parking lot was transformed into the only sculpture park in Topeka, with meandering sidewalks, hardscape and landscape connecting the artwork.

Senne’s industrial millwright division designed and fabricated hundreds of feet of steel, limestone and Ipe (South American walnut) benches and stages. The finished product is a great experience and gathering place for all of North Topeka.

The examples of quality work and craftsmanship on this project demonstrate our partnership philosophy and culture. We strive to attack any project from all angles and create the best project package we can. Here, we are extremely proud of the workmanship of our carpentry crew. A differentiator we were able to bring was our industrial metal fabrication capabilities (that none of our competitors have), saving the exorbitant cost of bringing new design and steel fabricators into the project.
