This year the 4-H/FFA Market Livestock Sale at the fairgrounds looked quite a bit different due to Covid. The Martket officials made the hard choice to move the sale to a live online auction. All the kids involved had worked really hard all year to present their livestock and deserved the opportunity to show off what they had accomplished. For over 25 years Hammerquist Casalegno has shown up and supported these kids and this year was no acception. This year Hammerquist Casalegno purchased two Steers from sisters, Kimber and Hannah Boll. We are happy to say these girls did a fantastic job raising their steers and won Merit Award for the Carcass Division!!

Hammerquist Casalegno participates in a nation-wide Safety Stand-Down on April 9th, a day-event focusing on protecting workers and fighting the spread of the Coronavirus.
On Thursday April 9th, three (3) of our job sites Alta Views in Whitefish MT, Flathead Gymnastics and Woodlands Condominiums in Kalispell MT, we observed the Covid-19 safety stand-down. We reviewed information provided by the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC). Throughout out the day at each job site, in an outdoor space and strickly abiding by social distancing practices, approximately 60 to 70 job site personnel participated in the 15-20 minute stand-down. Hammerquist Casalegno also has been proactive in sending Do the Five, Children’s Symptom Checker and the informational packet with the latest guidance from AGC in the employee’s paycheck envelopes weekly.

Hammerquist Casalegno offers a 4 year Carpenter Apprentice program called Hammerquist Casalegno University (HCU).
From our current class of carpenter apprentices, Shane Hoff and Austin Miller are pictured taking a chapter exam from their text book during routine class-work. HCU’s carpenter apprenticeship program balances a smaller portion of apprentice time studying and in classroom sessions with the majority of their time spent hands on gaining experience in the field.
Go Shane and Austin!
Hammerquist Casalegno has broken ground on a new 144 unit condominium project behind Super 1 and the old Shopko building in Kalispell. The project houses approximately 225,000 SF of common, residential living and community space for residences and guests.
