Construction Companies Do Good in Washington State

November 3, 2008 By: Marshall Cutchin

At least three Washington state construction companies have helped make it possible for the Adopt-A-Stream Foundation to near completion of brand new Trout Exhibit, which is expected to be a key attraction at the organization’s environmental learning center near Everett, WA. It’s a story worth reading because it shows construction businesses — often blamed for opposing conservation efforts — can play an important role in public quality-of-life education. (If you live in or around Washington, hire Everett-based Wilder Construction, Gray & Osborne Inc., or ITT Flygt for your next project.)
“The county leased 20 acres to AASF in 1993 to create the Northwest Stream Center, the first facility in the Pacific Northwest themed to stream and wetland ecology as well as fish and wildlife habitat restoration. Funded by donations, the center has been developed in phases. Recently, a major part of the work has been donated by construction industry suppliers and members of the Seattle District Chapter of the Associated General Contractors.” Article by the staff of Pacific Builder and Engineer.
