In 2011 we partnered with All Hands Volunteers <https://www.hands.org/> to asses public and private buildings in Leogane Haiti after a devastating 7.0 earthquake struck the region. We implemented ATC-20 Rapid Evalution Saftey Assessment to over 200 residential and essential facilities. In addition, we participated in the the design and construction of (2) schools. With limited resources were were able to determine a fabrication solution for the site-built trusses and attachment to a shallow concrete foundation.
Each year we help organize and participate in BUILD llc’s S2V, a two-day bike ride from Seattle to Vancouver that gives back. Last year we supported Team Gleason <http://www.teamgleason.org/> and Bike Works <https://bikeworks.org/>, two great charities doing great work. The weekend also helps us get away from the screens, put work down, and reconnecting with friends.
