CNH’s Wayne Hilbert finishes time on MN Board of AELSLAGID

CNH Principal Wayne Hilbert recently finished serving his second and final term on the Minnesota State Board of Architecture, Engineering, Land Surveying, Landscape Architecture, Geoscience and Interior Design (AELSLAGID).



Hilbert was first appointed to the board by Governor Mark Dayton in 2013. In 2017, he was appointed by Governor Dayton to serve his second and final term finishing in June 2021. Members are capped at serving two terms.



During his tenure, he served at separate times as Chair of the Complaint Committee, Chair of the Credentialing Committee, and Chair of the Architects, Landscape Architects and Certified Interior Designers (ALACID) section.



He also represented the board at numerous National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) regional and annual meetings. Also heavily involved in NCARB, Hilbert took on several positions of regional leadership including Region Four Treasurer and Vice Chair seats, while working on committees including Architect Registration Exam (ARE) and Program Continuum Advisory Collaborative (PCAC.)



“It has been a fascinating and worthwhile experience to serve on this MN State board.  It is hard to describe all the aspects that the board impacts.  I will say that the function of the board and the national organizations associated with the board have a big impact on our design professions and the general public.” Hilbert said. “It is an honor to have served as a board member for the last eight years.  It was a great pleasure to serve with the other board members who were passionate about the integrity of their professions and the health, safety, and welfare of the general public.”

Burnsville Fire Station No. 1: Coming Soon

CNH’s largest fire station to date, the City of Burnsville’s Fire Station No. 1 is home to a crew of all full-time firefighters and more than 44,000 SF with 10 apparatus bays. Firefighter safety was one of nine top priorities for the station. Multiple contamination zones and a designated de-contamination area will allow firefighters to keep contaminated equipment and clothing in the apparatus bay until decontaminated. Another priority in the design was firefighter mental health. A warning system that slowly ramps up with alert tones and lighting while only alerting responding staff ensures firefighters are not awoken in an abrupt manner. The station includes areas for relaxation with different lighting to promote natural sleep rhythms, as well as a yoga studio and meditation garden. Extensive firefighter training features including Firefighter 1 and advanced training elements are another highlight of the station.
