We’re Back. . . and Looking Forward to 2017

Darius It is great to be back, after suspending our blog several months ago to complete our office move to a new location in Alexandria.
And as we settle in to welcome in a new year, we are thankful for the continued support of our tenant community as well as the contributions we have been able to make to affordable housing in Northern Virginia.
But to be honest, our social media skills grew, ahem, a little rusty during our off time. But that’s OK. To make up for it, we had a great new office celebration in October and a Christmas party in December to get back on track and show appreciation for all the craftsmen and women who worked on our new facilities.
Besides the building contractors, our own staff members and their families, a number of other notable folks attended the Shiver Management Group party in October including Virginia state Senator Scott A. Surovell and Mount Vernon-Lee Chamber of Commerce Executive Director, Holly Hicks Dougherty.
We want to thank them and everyone involved in our office move as well as our Office party celebration. We asked several of the office party attendees for their observations about the new office construction and thought we would share them with you.

Chang Soo Rhee: Office Project Architect – “The most challenging part of this project was connecting the two buildings together. I did not want to let Mr. Shiver down because you can tell the process of getting approval became frustrating.”

Julius Washington: Retired Employee
– “It is a lot more spacious than the previous office. Overall it turned out better than I expected”.

Pedro Rivas: Electrical Engineer – Facilities Manager “Mark (Jackson) is a great leader; He will let you know if you mess up in a heartbeat. You need people like that when doing projects like this because there are so many aspects.”

Tadasha Culbreath-Shiver: – “It’s great to see an idea come into fruition after months of continuous labor and planning. The overall design is professional and looks comfortable for employees.”
