Last Thursday and Friday, the firm spent some amazing quality time together visiting the (almost) complete Merrill College renovation, hanging out in the new Plaza Building, flying a drone, kicking soccer balls, strategizing, eating, walking on the beach, telling campfire stories, and setting some pretty big goals for ourselves. Good times had by all!

CAW Outreach has nominated ALL CAW EMPLOYEES, FRIENDS, AND FANS to the Leap Sandcastle No Ice Bucket Challenge!

Similar to the famous ALS Ice Bucket Challenge that you have seen on YouTube and performed by celebrities everywhere, we are asking for donations to help a great cause. The difference is that we are actually requiring that you DO NOT dump an ice bucket on your head and instead JUST give a donation. We recognize that California is in a drought, so we would like to encourage that people conserve their ice to use it for things like filling a garbage can to stick your foot in after playing basketball or making a delicious glass of iced coffee…and help arts education at the same time!

It’s a win-win! It’s the No Ice Bucket Challenge!

The cause is Leap Arts for Education and it provides valuable arts education to elementary school students in the Bay Area. Leap is a non-profit that was founded in response to California’s Proposition 13, which effectively eliminated state funding for arts education in public elementary schools. Today Leap provides over 30 schools and 7,000 students with amazing programs that include architecture, dance, creative writing, chorus, drumming, theatre, and visual arts.

Our fundraising deadline is actually TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, which is now only 4 DAYS AWAY! If you were thinking about making a donation, today is the day to do it. Even the tiniest bit will help us to reach our goal and support the CAW Sandcastle Team and arts education in schools throughout the Bay Area.

CAW is proud to announce that Matt Dohrmann has been promoted to an Associate of the firm. Matt joined CAW in 2007 and has been instrumental in the success of several of our key projects including the Sequoia High School Gymnasium, the Bay Area’s first public school building to earn a LEED-Platinum certification. He also recently completed work on a new Digital Arts building on the Menlo-Atherton High School campus which opened to great acclaim.

Anybody who has worked with Matt appreciates his thoroughness and attention to all aspects of the job. Clients appreciate Matt’s calm demeanor and proactive, problem-solving approach to job site issues, and repeat clients often request that Matt be a part of their project team. Within the office, Matt acts as a mentor to his colleagues and shares his vast construction site experience. His commitment to the firm and our clients’ goals make this a much-deserved promotion.

When not attending to projects, Matt enjoys time with his family including his beautiful wife Jonelle and daughters Riley and Kinsey. Matt lives in Pacifica and enjoys surfing as a hobby; many of you who visited our offices last month saw examples of the custom surfboards Matt makes in his free time displayed in our lobby. Thank you, Matt, from all of us at CAW Architects.
