On Saturday, Client Engagement Manager Emily Meyer, and Business Manager Gretchen Renz participated in the SDA Seattle Society for Design Administration Board of Directors 2021 planning session. SDA is a professional organization supporting the continuing education and professional development of non-technical staff in the A/E/C industry. As Directors, they will support the Seattle Chapter’s goals for 2021, including providing education in human resources, finances, leadership, office administration, and marketing. The resources provided by SDA have aided our firm’s response to the new workplace during the pandemic. Way to go, Emily and Gretchen!
Another highlight of 2020 was the completion of CSO tank 26 and “A Place of Truths Plaza” in downtown Spokane. This was well-utilized by Spokanites this summer, as a place to reflect, gather safely outdoors, and view the Spokane River below. Bernardo Wills Architects landscape architects had been working on this project since 2015, and the complex construction process came to a successful conclusion in late 2019. The City of Spokane opened the plaza this spring for Spokanites’ enjoyment. We look forward to future gatherings there and hope to see food trucks, live music, and community groups gather when it is safe to do so.
Check out the latest drone shots of the North Bank of Riverfront Park. You can see the playground progress before the final push next spring. The play equipment is installed, and the basketball court is ready for winter. These photos Selkirk Development provide context and you can see the proximity of the playground to the new Sportsplex, former Ram Building, and the connectivity to the rest of Riverfront Park and downtown Spokane.
Winter is barely here, but we are already looking forward to spring!
xotic Metals is very happy with the overall results of this new addition to their campus and plans on moving towards full building utilization in 2021.
