We are deeply saddened by the loss of Commissioner Nick Fish, a thoughtful and determined advocate for the community and in particular those in need of affordable housing and those experiencing homelessness. We are grateful to have worked with him on many community building projects throughout Portland and his tremendous efforts will leave a positive and lasting impact on all the lives he helped to support through his longstanding commitment as a public servant. We send our deepest sympathies to his family and loved ones.
As the year and decade draws to a close, we are grateful to reflect on the people, partners and projects that have contributed to the health and wellness of our company and our greater community throughout the Northwest. Wishing you all a safe and fulfilling New Year! We look forward to continuing the work of building communities and empowering people in 2020.
We are thrilled to announce Liberty Bank Building has received the Affordable Housing Development of the Year award at NAIOP’s annual Night of the Stars! The project was one of several outstanding honorees representing multi-family and affordable housing that “serves the fast-growing population and addresses housing needs for families at all income levels.”
To all of our tradespeople, project partners, non-profit allies and community members we wish you a safe and blessed holiday season. We are grateful for our #walshcofamily and for being able to partner with people who are building communities and empowering people.
Christmas and Holiday Greetings from B Btry 2-218 FA 2 platoon 2nd squad in Qatar! We are deeply grateful to our amazing Foreman Elizabeth Stewart and all of the men and women who are not able to be with their families and loved ones while in service to our country. All of us at Walsh Construction Co. would like to thank you for your service and commitment.
What a team! The Sky Lakes Collaborative Health Center – a joint effort between Sky Lakes Medical Center and Oregon Health & Science University to advance rural health care – is now open. The four-story, 100,000 SF, $50 million project will house the OHSU Campus for Rural Health, the OHSU Cascades East Family Medicine Residency and clinic, and the new Sky Lakes Primary Care Clinic.
With expansive “smart” windows overlooking Upper Klamath Lake and the Cascade Mountains, the building provides stunning views for patients and their families. An airy two-story entryway on the east presents a welcoming environment, and made-in-Oregon furnishings enhance a relaxing atmosphere.
“The partnership of Sky Lakes and OHSU made the Sky Lakes Collaborative Health Center possible, and will help us meet the health care needs of our patients as well as create a stable workforce that will be ready to meet tomorrow’s health care challenges,” said Paul Stewart, Sky Lakes President and Chief Executive Officer. “This building and the philosophy it embraces is an investment in the future of health care.”
Excellent work by all!
