As one of the most critical enclosure components, the roof assembly is often one of the least understood. With so many system options and insulation strategies to choose from, it can be difficult to make the right decision for your project. On Tuesday April 21, WALSH hosted an event, sponsored and organized by Portland CSI, with a panel of industry professionals, including; Mark Hambelton, McDonald and Wetle, VP and Senior Estimator; George Starbuck, M+W, VP and Senior Estimator; John Herrmann, President, Bain Associates; Phil Strand, Senior Technical Roof Consultant, McBride Architecture and Panel Moderator Marty Houston, Quality Director, Walsh Construction Co.
The sons and daughters of Walsh Construction Co. employees learned about the construction industry Thursday with their participation in the company’s Take Your Child to Work Day. At the firm’s office in Southwest Portland, kids learned about estimating, job safety, and heavy equipment before building their own birdhouses.
I am proud to report that WALSH just received an Innovation in Philanthropy award from the Portland Business Journal. This is a very special award, as we received it for the collaborative and passionate way we address philanthropy as an organization, not simply the donations we make.
