Last week, the largest all-affordable housing development in 50 years opened adding 240 new affordable homes to the Rose City. We are proud to support the Louisa Flowers Apartments and the safe, stable housing it will provide for hundreds of Portlanders, in a thriving neighborhood, with transit to take them to jobs, schools, appointments, and everyday errands right outside their front door.
It is with deep respect and our great honor that we announce the Grand Opening of the Clayton Mohr Commons Veterans Housing to provide 24-units of housing serving chronically homeless and severely low-income veterans and their families in Oregon City. Congratulations to Northwest Housing Alternatives and the Housing Authority of Clackamas County (HACC) on the success of this exceptional community-building project designed by Kasa Architects.
This American flag was hand-made by our craftspeople in honor of our veterans. We used wood reclaimed from trees onsite for our veteran’s housing project being built for Northwest Housing Alternatives. We are so grateful to be a part of the Pleasant Avenue Apartments in Oregon City which will bring permanent affordable housing to our veterans. In honor of Veteran’s Day, we at Walsh Construction Co. want to thank all of our veterans and their families for their service and sacrifice, this day and every day.
In an effort to reduce costs, maintain quality and increase energy efficiency, REACH Community Development, Ankrom Moisan Architects, Inc., Stonewood Structural Engineers and Walsh Construction Co. teamed up to explore advanced framing techniques for the development of new affordable housing. By applying an optimized wall assembly design, the partners discovered a way to bring economic, environmental and social benefits to affordable housing owners, developers and residents.

We had so much fun celebrating Central City Concern in the North Park Blocks of Portland on 40 years of supporting the community! Since 1979, Central City Concern’s work to end homelessness has been about people.
We have been honored to work on several projects with Central City Concern over the years and are excited for them to receive a much deserved recognition – Mayor Ted Wheeler officially proclaimed September 12 CCC Day in Portland! Thank you to CareOregon for sponsoring the event.
Happy National Construction Appreciation Week!

In honor of 9/11, on September 11th in Eugene, Oregon, several local fire-fighters, and four of our tradespeople, climbed 110 flights of stairs on our Ya Po Ah Affordable Senior Housing Renovation project for Evergreen Union Retirement Association. We are grateful to support the brave men and women who commit their lives to be of service to our community as first responders and we honor our tradespeople who also work in risky situations to build and preserve our way of life. We recognize the dedicated, hard-working men and women instrumental in the development and success of our safety, infrastructure and housing.
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!!
