Here at Architectural & Engineering Design Associates we're always striving to improve. This means new hardware, new software, training and even a recent addition to the office building. These are all great ways to improve our service to our customers and the community. But they pale in comparison to the addition of people. Over the past year we have gained some valuable new associates who not only assist in creating new work, but also bring fresh eyes and perspective to our company.
Over the next few days I will be updating the website to add new content from end to end. A bit of that content will include two new additions to our production staff. We are proud to welcome Jake Spear and Alyssa Walker to the architectural department. Jake joined us recently and has integrated into the staff seamlessly. Alyssa had been interning with us while attending college and is now a full-time staff member. Both have contributed much already and we look forward to them growing along with us.
Growth requires energy and I'd like to take a few seconds to talk about some of our project partners that have helped us to grow. Over the past 5 years AEDA has been lucky enough to secure several term contracts around the area, in addition to the many wonderful customers we serve. We are proud to serve as Term Contract partners with both Clinton County and Essex County. Additionally, we've been blessed with contracts with ORDA, Franklin County IDA and Harrietstown Housing Authority. These term contracts have enriched our production with various projects and is proof that we are capable of delivering great projects and cost-effective design solutions. We are thankful that these groups have placed their faith in our abilities and we will continue to strive to improve for ALL of our customers. Thank you for a stellar 2018 and thank you for a great outlook for 2019.
