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!

Team bonding is important to us. And given the current world events with people working from home and social distancing, its even more critical to helping an organization stay connected. On Friday night, Advance Design Consultants, Inc.  and sister company, ADC Construction Management, Inc., teamed up to  host a Virtual Oktoberfest for our staff. For the past 3 years we have hosted an Oktoberfest event & cornhole tournament at a local brewery. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we adjusted our plan for 2020. Each guest received a box filled with craft brews, snacks, photo props & more. 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 time having drinks and catching up together.

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.
