We’re on the move

By CEO, Gus Simonds

It’s a bittersweet time as we move our headquarters to SeaTac Office Tower this summer, ending a 34-year stay at the Detroit Avenue Campus. In 1988 all our business was run out of the Detroit Campus, including our fabrication shop – there were no remote offices, except a newly opened Portland, OR office. Over three decades, we have accommodated the continued growth of MacDonald-Miller by adding 9 additional offices across the region including our 100,000 SF shop near Boeing Field and our new Seattle SODO office opening this fall.

This move marks a new chapter in the history of MacMiller. It’s a sad goodbye, but also a really exciting infusion of energy into the future of our great company.

Summertime is internship time here at MacMiller, and this year we have over 25 students, working in more parts of the business than ever before, including Detailing, Engineering, Fab Shop, Performance Contracting, Project Management, Smart Buildings, Service Sales, and Service Field. Some of our interns have come from as far as Houston, Princeton, and Illinois. I am really happy to see not only more interns than ever before, but also that we’re finding diverse talent in new places outside the NW.

Over the last several months, the leadership team and I have been working on defining what our MacDonald-Miller culture of Equity and Inclusion really means. As hard as it is to put into words something as complex as how we all work and show up together, I feel we have a durable “North Star” statement we can all lean into and be proud of everyday:

You Be You and Together We Can. Diverse perspectives drive our business.

MacDonald-Miller is committed to empowering our teams and partners to drive positive changes that includes equity for all. We succeed when everyone feels they belong, are safe and understood.

You be you, execute with distinction, and enjoy the summer while it lasts!
