"Seattle Goodwill's new Job Training, Education and Administrative Support Services building is vital to our mission. It allows us to grow and increase the number of people we help find jobs throughout the Puget Sound. The choice of Foushée for this important project reflects our strong partnership that began 18 years ago. Their expertise, creativity and guidance during pre-construction and design helped ensure our beautiful building stayed within budget. Their meticulous execution of the construction phase delivered the project on-time and under budget. Our employees and students are grateful and up-lifted by our new home. As we celebrate 90 years of building the future, we thank Foushée for everything they have done to help us along the way. We look forward to many more projects in the future!"
