Tuesday, December 24th, 2013

To All Our Clients, Family, and Friends–

I want to take a minute to say Happy New Year! We’d like to thank everyone we had the privilege to work with in 2013. It was another fast-paced year of growth and change for Sass Construction.  In 2014 we look forward to introducing you to some great new team members and we will continue to expand our operation. We wouldn’t be who we are without the support of our amazing clients and vendors. Thank you and we look forward in working for you in 2014!

Meet Amber – New Team Member at Sass Construction

Friday, January 11th, 2013

Here at Sass Construction we’d like to introduce you to Amber Scoble, who recently joined us as an Administrative Assistant and Sales Associate!  Amber has been with Sass since late October and we’re thrilled to have her on board.

Amber previously worked for Home Advisor in Colorado (also known as Service Magic) as an Executive Consultant, and before that she supervised multiple departments at Home Depot.  Amber grew up in Colorado and is currently finishing her degree in Civil Engineering. Amber of Sass Construction

We checked in with Amber to give you the chance to get to know her.  Here are a few of her thoughts on job variety, ice fishing, and the importance of a good drum beat.

What do you like best about your job?
There’s always something different each day.  As we work through projects for clients, people want different things.  There’s no redundancy with my job, and new challenges every day!

What’s one thing you miss about being a kid?
I miss playing the drums.  I was a drummer from Middle School all the way through High School and I loved playing a good beat in a song.

What activities do you do for fun?
I love seeing movies, working out, and skiing.

What do you like best about living in Minnesota?
There’s always something to do here!  Whether it’s ice fishing in the winter, going to the mall, picking apples, or taking a drive up to Duluth.

If you could plan a trip anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I would go to Rome to see the Coliseum and sightsee.

Thanks Amber and welcome to Sass Construction!

Home Hazards to Watch for this Christmas Season

Thursday, December 13th, 2012

It’s that time of the year again – time to gather around the tree with family and friends, enjoy hot chocolate, delicious foods, and celebrate with gifts! Christmas tree light safety

Joy-filled as Christmas can be, it also brings potential safety hazards.  At Sass Construction, we want to help you avoid those hazards — after all, it’s the best gift we can give! 

To help you stay safe this holiday season and keep your celebrations “merry and bright,” Sass Construction recommends using the following guidelines when handling and plugging-in your Christmas decorations:

  1. Extension Cords and Outside Lights  — Make sure when using an exterior extension cord, the cord is labeled as such. Examine each cord before use, looking for fraying, cracks, or other damage. Cords should always be replaced if you see any damage. Keep all extension cords away from standing water and snow, and always use the appropriate length cord.
  2. Indoor Lights and Decorations  –  It’s important to inspect indoor Christmas tree lights before each use. Always follow the manufacturer’s directions and be careful to not overload an outlet with too many plugs, which has the potential to cause a fire.  Avoid placing cords where they can be pinched or smashed in a door, window, or under heavy furniture.  And lastly, unplug your decorations before leaving the house or going to sleep.  For convenience, you can purchase a timer from your local hardware store that plugs into your electrical socket.
  3. Christmas Trees  — When choosing your Christmas tree, we advise the greener the better! As the weeks go by, a tree will dry out in a heated home. A dry tree is more flammable than a healthy green one. Make sure your tree has plenty of water each day. Ask to have a few inches cut off the trunk when you purchase the tree to allow better water absorption.  Avoid placing a tree closer than three feet from any heating agents, including fireplaces, electrical heaters and/or radiators.

From all of us at Sass Construction, Inc., we wish you a safe and joy-filled Christmas!

A Note From Mark Sass

Wednesday, May 16th, 2012

It’s hard to believe that summer is almost here – time sure does fly! I just wanted to take a minute to reflect on the past few months and what I have learned.

I have been going to Alaska for part of the winter for many years now, helping my son Brent live out his dream of dog mushing. I appreciate my time away and always come back with a new eye opening perspective on life.

This year in Alaska I worked on equipment, helped with logistics, feed dogs, and pitched in just about anywhere I was needed. In addition, I went with Brent to the races he competed in – the Yukon Quest, and for the first time ever the Iditarod. Brent placed 13th in the Iditarod and received the Rookie of the Year award – we are all very proud of him. And now that the racing season is over we are all looking forward to next year.

During the season I put on 5,500 miles traveling around Alaska, along with following Brent through the race checkpoints to cheer him on and help out with the dogs. Along the way I had the pleasure of meeting many interesting people from all walks of life. I also spent time dog mushing, snowshoeing, skiing and snowmobiling.

If I’m reminded one thing from my trip to Alaska each year – it’s we all need to slow down and enjoy life a little more. I hope that this note finds you well and that you can take some time to slow down this summer and enjoy all the important people in your life!

As always, let us know if there is anything we can do to help you! We appreciate your business and look forward to a great summer!
