The Iowa Utilities Building is using our' Energy Efficiency Education Dashboard to educate staff and the public on the building's sustainable initiatives. This is only Iowa's second platinum LEED certified building. A video of the application is below.
QA Graphics developed the website, HyVee 360, for Hy-Vee, Inc., an employee-owned corporation operating 235 supermarket stores in eight Midwestern states. The new site provides education about Hy-Vee’s sustainable initiatives along with tips on how consumers can live a healthy and sustainable life.
A key feature of the site is an interactive component that allows viewers to interact with a 3D store model. Visitors can select different departments like produce, seafood, or Health Market to learn more about Hy-Vee’s sustainable efforts. They can also learn about Hy-Vee’s efforts to reduce energy and resource consumption, increase recycling, and expand their offering of local, organic and sustainable products.
“We chose to create the website to engage our employees and customers and to keep them informed of our sustainable initiatives,” said Michael Smith, AVP of Real Estate and Sustainability at Hy-Vee. “Hy-Vee 360 provides visitors to the website a good overview of the types of sustainable activities we are engaged in and also encourages them to provide us feedback.”
To strengthen its sales presentation to potential customers, Ryko Solutions sought out QA Graphics for a creative solution that would provide better visualization of Ryko car wash systems in customers’ bays. QA Graphics’ 3D design team created a series of photorealistic graphics that accurately showcase the company’s CleanTouch rollover vehicle car wash system.
To complete the project, Ryko provided architectural drawings and QA Graphics visited a car wash location to take photographs, ensuring the final graphics accurately portray the equipment. The graphics illustrate how the car wash station looks from the point of entry, overhead showing the CleanTouch equipment and its components, and exiting the wash.
“Our experience working with QA Graphics was fantastic. They were very responsive to our needs and provided the high-end type of visuals that we were looking for,” said Doug Roush, marketing product manager at Ryko. “We will use these graphics to generate additional revenue. Having such realistic visuals like these will allow us to do so.” Learn more about this project.
QA Graphics developed an interactive display for the owners of the latest green McDonald’s® franchise located in Riverside, California, to help show customers why the new restaurant is sustainable and energy efficient.

The Riverside McDonald’s is the fourth McDonald’s restaurant in the U.S. to seek LEED® certification. This restaurant is one of nine owned and operated by Tom and Candace Spiel of McSpi, Inc.
