October 2017 Newsletter

Earlier this month, Republicans unveiled the framework for a new tax reform bill.  While not directly related, the new reform bill may have some influence on whether or not the 179d federal tax deduction gets extended.  Of course, the current proposal is only a framework and many things can change between now and when (or if) it becomes law.  You can read more about how this bill affects the current status of the 179d extension in our post: 179d Extension October 2017 Update.

Here’s a few other topics we were talking about this month:

  1. Crossroads Tavern – We welcome Crossroads Tavern to downtown and thank them for letting us help with the design.
  2. Historic Plumbing – I spotted some interesting historic plumbing on a recent tour of the Bishop’s Palace in Galveston, TX.
  3. Cooking Studio of Downtown Rogers – Thank you to the Cooking Studio of Downtown Rogers for letting us help design their recent addition.

Be sure to check our website regularly for updates or follow us on FacebookLinkedIn or Twitter. We wish you the best this month and if you ever have need of any of our services, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Have a great day!

Crossroads Tavern

Congratulations to Crossroads Tavern on opening their location in Downtown Rogers.  Forward Engineers was honored to have been a part of the design team for this project.  Our staff prepared the mechanical, electrical and plumbing drawings for the remodel and reconfiguration of this historic building.  Since our offices are upstairs in the same building, we had the unique opportunity of seeing (and hearing) the construction progress from demolition to final touches.

If you are in downtown Rogers, you should check them out.  When you are done, come on upstairs and stop by our office to say hi.  We are excited to have Crossroads Tavern as our new neighbor and wish them the best.  You can check out Crossroads Tavern’s facebook page for more information.  Here are some photos of the project:
