Work is progressing beautifully on the Willow Creek Crossing apartments for the Housing Authority of Washington County, together with DGB Properties! The 120-unit project, designed by TVA Architects, will provide affordable, multi-family housing to serve Washington County families in need. Thank you to the WALSH team of Dean Lindstrom, Brandi Pine, Erik Holte and Jill Mathews!
Bring on the happy! The Oregon Humane Society brought kittens and puppies to the office yesterday, and our WALSH family soaked up the snuggles! These sweet babies are currently at the Oregon Humane Society and need their forever home.
Huge thanks to the Oregon Humane Society for all you do to keep our animals safe, not just in Oregon, but throughout the country.

Walsh Construction Co. participated for the third time in the Providence O’Christmas Trees, an annual, three-day event that raises money for the ministries of Providence Senior and Community Services. Every year on the Sunday after Thanksgiving, designers and their elves decorate trees at The Westin Seattle, which are put on display the following Monday for the Christmas Carnival, Tuesday for the Silver Bells Luncheon, and Wednesday for the Gala Dinner & Auction. The trees are auctioned off alongside other high-end items and experiences generously donated by sponsors. $1.5 million was raised at this year’s event! The money raised by the Providence O’Christmas Trees event will help provide services such as hospice, home care, assisted living, nursing homes, skilled nursing, supportive housing, and other types of care to seniors and those in need in our community.
Thank you so much to all the WALSH and RDF employees who participated in Movember! Sport a Mo, Save a Bro! Significant thanks to our own Wendy Kato for her dedication and commitment to such a worthy cause! And thanks to The Night Owl Bakery Seattle for the wonderful mustache cookies!
WALSH supports Movember, an annual event involving the growing of facial hair and moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men’s suicide.
Work is wrapping up on the building’s main four-story steel structure. Watch the steel structure take shape! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wXqlBmVZSp0&feature=youtu.be
The center’s construction is a partnership between Sky Lakes Medical Center, a non-profit, community-owned hospital that serves Klamath and Lake counties and Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), Oregon’s only academic health center. The nearly $50m, 100,000 SF medical office and educational building will improve clinical care, provide an ideal venue for training for OHSU medical students and ultimately enhance the health of the community overall.
The four-story medical building will bring several providers together under the same roof and will also support the OHSU Campus for Rural Health. By consolidating several Sky Lakes primary care clinics, the building will bring more than three-fourths of the primary care physicians in Klamath Falls under one roof to better serve patients and foster a culture of collaboration among all health care providers.
Right now, crews are gearing up to lay out concrete for the first few floors, in addition to mechanical and electrical work inside the building. A huge thank you to our WALSH team of Beverly Culp, Chuck Moore, John Hardesty, Mark Barrows, Mike Sloop, Pete Bruns and Sara Schubert!
