Effectively Building Sustainable Communities

It’s what we do because it’s what we believe. 

Project Need:   The Channel 2 News Team, of the KTUU-TV network, gathers Alaskan news stories for the largest viewing area in the country. A new office/studio was needed in Anchorage to better accommodate their state-wide audience. The new facility is 40,000-square-feet and contains sound production studios, multiple news rooms, seven satellite antennae, and a 110-foot microwave tower.
