Last Friday, our team got together for a little pre-Thanksgiving bonding. We teamed up with Grazing Gouda to offer each guest a box of ingredients (meat, cheeses, fresh & dried fruits, nuts, crackers, jam/honey, olives/cornichon, chocolates, and garnish) to make a charcuterie board for 4-6 people. Guests also got 2 bottles of either red or white wine. We attended a virtual class and learned how to make our own boards for the upcoming holidays. Finally, we enjoyed bingo and socializing with the team.

At ADC, we work hard and play hard…together. On Friday night, Advance Design Consultants, Inc.  and sister company, ADC Construction Management, Inc., teamed up to  host a Virtual Oktoberfest for our staff to have a chance to socialize together virtually. Each guest received craft brews and a bag filled with Oktoberfest treats such as German sausages, pretzels, imported mustards from local German market, Gourmet Haus Staudt & Beirgarten. Together we joined a video chat with the Brewers/Owners of Hapa’s Brewing Company to do a tasting and Q&A with the brewers. Then staff enjoyed some Biergarten Bingo and social time having drinks and catching up together.

On Friday, November 20th the ADC & ADC-CM team gathered for a Virtual Happy Hour. Over 25 employees and spouses/guests gathered for dinner, drinks and raffle from the comfort of their own homes. The companies provided each guest with a box with all the ingredients for their drinks so we could raise our glasses together and catch up. It was so great to see many familiar faces and get to a know a few new ones!

Thursday night, ASHRAE’s San Jose Chapter brought together ladies from across the HVAC and Engineering community in their virtual event, Women in ASHRAE Terrarium Workshop. ADC was proud to have a woman from our team participate. Approximately 30 women gathered on a Zoom meeting to network, socialize and learn to build mini terrariums. The social event celebrated diversity in ASHRAE and helped connect female engineers in the industry. They brought in a plant specialist from Succulence, a local San Francisco shop focused on unique plants, supplies, terrariums and vertical gardens. Prior to the Zoom, each participant received a kit with all the supplies needed to make their own mini succulent terrarium. Together the women learned about these unique plants, proper drainage & watering, and shared an evening of conversation and laughter while creating a unique piece for their homes. We are grateful for events like this that offer the opportunity to build relationships and support the women in the engineering fields.
