Growth and expansion have always been one of WDS’s goals. This means establishing offices outside of the Sacramento region and expanding our expertise and services while adding key staff. As our client base grows, we have found ourselves working in an ever-expanding number of cities and counties. Our new office in San Francisco means we can easily serve clients and projects in the greater Bay Area from either office location.
When Keith Billick, ASLA, a friend for 16+ years, moved to the Bay Area, a conversation started and fairly quickly developed into a discussion about establishing WDS’s first satellite office. A global pandemic doesn’t make the decision or process easier, but as we decided, it does allow us to get established before the market turns and things get back to a more familiar way of life.
Some quick stats, our San Francisco office is located in the Salesforce Tower, where we are currently leasing in the WeWork co-working space on the 37th floor. And let me tell you, the views make it hard to get any work done! We chose this location so we are centrally located in the Bay Area and accessible from any direction.
