“The team and their subcontractors undertook construction of the five-story light-gauge metal framing with an innovative construction methodology, asking appropriate questions, providing useful input and helpful suggestions where warranted, and in the end, building a wonderful addition to Seattle’s emerging Cascade neighborhood.” - Michael S.
