We would like to share a deep congratulations to Northwest Housing Alternatives (NHA) on the success of their beautiful Campus Redevelopment and Net-Zero Headquarters four weeks ahead of schedule! Having made due for 30 years operating their non-profit and family shelter out of three single family houses, NHA was in need of suitable facilities to support their work of providing much needed affordable housing to the community. We are thrilled and honored to have been the general contractor as O’Neill/Walsh Community Builders (OWCB) (one of our partners projects with O’Neill Construction Group)! We want to thank MWA Architects for their exceptional designs and communication as well as so many dedicated subcontractors and vendors. Huge thanks to our team of Ali O’Neill, Afton Walsh, Aaron Elliott, Drew Anderson, Nick Cardoza and Sara Schubert!!
Exciting to see the progress at Mt. Baker Family Housing for Mercy Housing Northwest! Wood framing is complete and we are currently installing roofing and moving into the interior finish stage. Work on the building exterior is also underway and moving quickly. In the coming weeks we’ll begin installing sidewalks, curbs, and new right-of-way landscaping. The 95 affordable units are a mix of one, two, and three-bedroom apartments. At the first level 8,200 square feet is dedicated to a Family Resource Center that will offer housing resources and support services.
Thank you to our great project teams at Mercy Housing NW and Runberg, and our WALSH team members on and off-site that include Dennis Maples, Susan Hori, Nathan Connaway, BJ Graham, Joe Geise, Matt Elliott, Lee Burkhart, Karen Moon and Brian Lenz.
