WHAT HAVE THE BRANCHES BEEN UP TO?
In progress: UC Merced 2020
Sr. Project Manager Wen Luu gave a few employees from our Metro Service Department the grand tour of the progress taking place.
This week we had over 30 employees from all of our branches gather at our Corporate office for a three day DBIA Certification training. They learned about the Principles of Design-Build Project Delivery, Post Award Design Build & Design-Build Contracts and Risk Management.
AFLAC Grammy Awards Experience
Thanks to our AFLAC representative, Beth Hester, for bringing this Grammy Award Experience Mobile Trailer to our corporate office this week. Our employees got to walk through, take a red carpet paparazzi photo, play guitar hero, use their interactive benefits estimator tool and enter to win some fun raffle prizes. Beth was onsite to help and answer any questions about the open enrollment process.
BBQ and Baseball with the Stockton Ports
DBIA training attendees from all branches, Corporate and Metro employees and their families all joined together this week to enjoy a summer tradition, all you can eat BBQ and baseball. Special thanks to our friends at Edges Electrical Group for helping to sponsor this event.
After 35 years, the Marina branch office got a face lift with a new roof!
Thank you Dennis Collins from Collins Construction, a Fresno excavator company, for capturing our building from this view. He was heading to his vacation spot on his motorcycle when he came upon our Corporate office in his travels. He sent this picture and well wishes to Melanee Euless, our Fresno Branch Office Manager.
