The Terry Thomas inspires local artist
Lisa Daniels, a local artist who creates paintings inspired by architectural spaces, toured The Terry Thomas a couple of months ago. Many details caught her eye and she decided to do multiple paintings. She recently completed one and plans to do two more. The finished piece is a 36” x 48” acrylic painting hanging in the Seattle office of DCI Engineers. Thank you Lisa; we’re flattered that our building inspired you.

Tis the season for sharing!
Weber Thompson employees have banded together to give fifteen children (in seven families) a very happy holiday this year. In total, nearly $2,500 worth of gift cards for toys and groceries will be donated to these families via the YWCA. Thank you to Christina Stewart for pioneering the effort in our office, and for encouraging the high rise and mid-rise/low rise teams to also get involved. Most of all, we hope the effort makes the season a little brighter for a few families in need.
