Sure we are experiencing some June gloom in Southern California but the weather will turn sunny soon. With the Dodgers firmly in first place and DBaC as busy as ever, the focus of our employee spotlight is a new project manager. We will also turn our attention to some great work we are doing for the Boy’s and Girl’s Club of America right here in Orange County.

We value experience and loyalty here at DBaC and in our new project manager we know we get both. Dave Glatfelter recently joined the team and he is bringing 21 years of project management experience with him, with a total of 28 years in the construction business. But 1991 wasn’t really the start of Dave’s construction experience. His father owned a concrete business and Dave was helping with pours back when he was 12 years old. Over his career Dave has really done it all and when asked what the most rewarding job has been to date he immediately answered taking a total of 49 luxury homes for Warmington Homes project in Scripps Ranch from conception to completion with some real pressure to finish up in 2006. To supervise the project from planning and entitlements to last unit sold is something to be proud of. Dave was born in Pomona, Ca. but raised right here in Newport Beach. He has two sons, Mason and Parker, and they all love to snowboard, camp and fish. Welcome to the team, Dave!

We thought we would mix it up for June and give you a glimpse of a few jobs in progress and then show you the finished product in a couple months. As part of its larger “Pursuing Greatness” campaign, the Boy’s and Girl’s Club has engaged DBaC to renovate the clubs in Newport Beach, Costa Mesa, Irvine and Santa Ana. The campaign aims to increase capacity, expand family-focused programs and position club sites to serve as hubs for community partnerships. With a generous donation from the Argyros family, the club reached its goal of $6.5 M to renovate the four clubs. As you can see from the attached pictures, work is underway in Costa Mesa and Irvine. All the work should be done in time for the school year to start in September, and we will give you a look at the finished product then We appreciate both the great work the Boy’s and Girl’s Clubs do and the trust they placed in DBaC for this important project. Thank you!

As always, we look forward to serving our clients as we continue into the summer season in Newport.
