The work begins even earlier to beat the heat! Thank you to all of our WALSH and RDF crews and trade partners who build quality work and teamwork through all kinds of weather.
Parkview at Terwilliger Plaza will be a ten-level, 370,000 SF building offering 127 independent senior living homes built to Passive House principles which will contribute to Portland’s distinction as a national leader in sustainable building practices! In early August, the skybridge will be erected and will connect the Parkview expansion with the existing campus while also creating an iconic gateway to the southern entrance to the city. We are thrilled to be collaborating with Terwilliger Plaza, LRS Architects, Inc. and PAE while leading the way toward improved senior accessibility.
The 2022 WALSH Oregon company picnic was a great success at Alderbrook Park! Parents relaxed and competed in a game of bingo while the kids jumped in the bounce house, or took part in face painting, making balloon animals, having fun in the petting zoo or paddling on the pond.

The WALSH Family had an amazing day of team building playing paintball – collaborative teamwork and having fun through rain and mud and cold! That is how we roll. Team building is not only what we do during the work time, it’s about what we do during our free time. We appreciate each and every one of our #walshcofamily and their hard work and dedication both in the office and in the field!
