Lake City Family Housing for LIHI will Include Classroom and Solar!

The site of old Fire Station 39 is looking great! We are wrapping up the framing on Lake City Family Housing for LIHI and will soon begin installation of the building envelope. The six-story project will support local families with 70 affordable apartments and a preschool managed by Refugee Women’s Alliance (ReWA). Runberg’s design features a 6,600 SF classroom with a playful and colorful façade, and capacity for 80 students. Special features include a rooftop deck, gardens, and solar array.

Our hardworking WALSH and RDF crews are led by Greg Linnell, Nathan Connaway, Tanner Romo, BJ Graham and Wendy Kato at the helm; and trade superintendents Jeremy Winter, Ryan Mertes, Justin Nieto, Tom Koviak, Jeromy Wood and Shannon Morey.

Many thanks to Tanner for the progress photo!

Bob Walsh was awarded the Daily Journal of Commerce (DJC) Icons award!

Bob Walsh was awarded the Daily Journal of Commerce (DJC) Icons award at a ceremony Dec. 14. The award honors the local building industry’s long-time leaders who have contributed to the overall health and success of the area. We at WALSH couldn’t agree more with the recognition and are grateful to have such a thoughtful, community-focused leader who has dedicated almost 57 years to the collective success of not only our organization and people, but to the numerous non-profits and community builders we partner with throughout the Northwest. We want to thank Bob for all of his efforts over the years and for his continued support and guidance for the betterment of all of our people throughout the ranks of this great company. In true Bob form, when he was told we were nominating him, his first reaction was that the company’s success has always been a collective effort and there is no reason for him to only have this recognition. Although we understand his stance, we beg to differ.

Congratulations to Bob and congratulations to all of our fellow icons out there doing good works! Below is a link to the video of our President Matt Leeding accepting the award on Bob’s behalf.
