The six-story project will support local families with 70 affordable apartments and a preschool managed by Refugee Women’s Alliance (ReWA). Runberg’s design features a 6,600 SF classroom with a playful and colorful façade, and capacity for 80 students. Special features include a rooftop deck, gardens, and solar array.

Bob Walsh was awarded the Daily Journal of Commerce (DJC) Icons award!

Bob Walsh was awarded the Daily Journal of Commerce (DJC) Icons award at a ceremony Dec. 14. The award honors the local building industry’s long-time leaders who have contributed to the overall health and success of the area. We at WALSH couldn’t agree more with the recognition and are grateful to have such a thoughtful, community-focused leader who has dedicated almost 57 years to the collective success of not only our organization and people, but to the numerous non-profits and community builders we partner with throughout the Northwest. We want to thank Bob for all of his efforts over the years and for his continued support and guidance for the betterment of all of our people throughout the ranks of this great company. In true Bob form, when he was told we were nominating him, his first reaction was that the company’s success has always been a collective effort and there is no reason for him to only have this recognition. Although we understand his stance, we beg to differ.

Congratulations to Bob and congratulations to all of our fellow icons out there doing good works! Below is a link to the video of our President Matt Leeding accepting the award on Bob’s behalf.

The Results of the Walsh Employee Community Giving Campaign!

During this holiday season, we are grateful for so many people and organizations we are lucky to work with who are truly Building Community. The results of our Walsh Employee Community Giving Campaign this year are a testament to our good people throughout the organization. Over 94% of our WALSH employees participated and 100% of our RDF crews contributed to this valuable campaign for a grand total of $288,418 including the WALSH match! The WALSH Employee Community Giving Campaign—a tradition since 1983—makes a significant annual impact to Oregon and Washington non-profits in addition to generous giving year-round. To support our employees’ passion for giving, WALSH matches employee donations of time and money to nonprofit organizations. There were 19 recipients of the Walsh Campaign this year who will continue to do good works in our community. Thank you to our dedicated employees for an extremely successful season of giving! Thank you to Cristina Rivera and Shelly Stephenson for successfully managing the campaign process!
