At our All-Hands meeting we also crowned the 2021 T-shirt contest winner! Every year our annual picnic preparations kick off with a T-shirt design competition, where one design gets chosen to be printed for the picnic. The 2021 T-shirt design winner was the wavy CIDA logo (#6) submitted by one of our new employees, Tawaab Gouhar!

The runner-up was the CIDA People design (#7) submitted by our own VP, Tara Lund!

Thank you to all our employees who submitted and we can’t wait to see you in person for the annual picnic!

Today, CIDA employees met for our annual All-Hands meeting where we had a general check-in with everyone, provided updates on the ever-changing covid protocols, and introduced our new employees. While 2020 was a tough year, it also happened to be the most profitable in CIDA’s company history! With that exciting news, CIDA was able to hire multiple new employees to keep up with demand. We’re excited for what we’ve achieved as a group so far and are all looking forward to what’s to come!

On Wednesday CIDA had the opportunity to visit the construction site of our residential renovation project Englund Manor with the Vancouver Housing Authority. The project is getting a full exterior building envelope improvement and renovation of interior common areas. During the visit our employee’s got to see what a building envelope repair looks like before the new cladding gets installed next week. Thank you Vancouver Housing Authority & Columbia Non-Profit Housing for having us and Richart Builders & Remodelers for answering all our questions.

June 19th, or Juneteenth, is now officially recognized as a federal holiday in the United States.

We at CIDA are encouraging all to use the day to learn more about the history of slavery and the systematic racism that has plagued our country for centuries. We encourage everyone to contribute to Black businesses and support efforts to uplift Black voices by educating themselves about our country's history of racism. We are relieved that this day is finally being recognized as a time to reflect, learn, and do better - individually and as a united country.”

A well-known favorite amongst hunters, meat enthusiasts and lunch goers alike, The Meating Place was in need of a major expansion.

Happy World Health Day! CIDA is celebrating by encouraging everyone eligible to get their COVID vaccines and schedule any checkups, doctor’s appointments and/or therapy sessions they may have missed over the last year. While it’s important to socially distance and wear masks to stop the spread of COVID, it is equally important to maintain mental, emotional, and physical health and wellness. Wishing you all a wonderful and ‘healthful’ day!

Today marks two milestones.

First we celebrate our 30th Anniversary. Yes on April Fool’s Day 1991 an architecture firm was founded. 30 years later were still having fun, enjoying our work and ensuring that our clients design needs are met.

Second, this is the first time we’ve had more then a handful of our wonderful CIDAites and their dogs together in over a year. Weather cooperated for our physically distanced celebration picnic.

A toast to many more celebrations….Preferably with family, friends, clients and contractors to join.

CIDA’s Holiday party is in full swing. Even though we can’t be together to celebrate the holiday season like we may want to, we have been able to uphold CIDA’s Holiday Sweater Competition (pets included).
We had a lot of great submissions, but there was one “sweater” that won by a landslide for its far to accurate depiction of this past year. Dumpster Fire is our 2020 Holiday Sweater winner.
In our CIDA pets category for the second year in a row is Wiley in his festive sweater.
It has been a long 9 months but we are grateful to still be able to see each other and have a good time remotely.
