Whatcom Creek Bridge Replacement

Our latest civil project, and our first bridge – Whatcom Creek Bridge. We had fun bolting the 38,000-pound bridge together with the help of Sicklesteel Cranes and placing it over the creek. The steel bridge is 110 feet long and 10 feet wide with fiberglass slats to walk upon.

Northwest Indian College Grand Opening

On March 21st, the Northwest Indian College celebrated the grand opening of their new Faber-built library building. Students, faculty, administrators and staff were as excited as we were with the beautiful metal and wood clad building. This library has the capacity to hold over 30,000 books and will be home to the Vine Deloria Jr. Collection. It has a combination of public study areas, classrooms, offices, spaces for children and teens, and a computer lab and media center.
