The word January is derived from the Roman god Janus. Janus was a divine being with two faces, front-to-back, that allowed him to look both into the past and forward to the future. This Roman god is a truly fitting inspiration for the month that starts our calendar; for, we too, have great reasons to be retrospective and excited for days to come.
2015 was a successful year for Gorton & Partners. We were able to secure over a dozen new and exciting projects in a wide array of construction categories including residential, commercial office, private residences and a variety of unique institutional undertakings. Like the city in which we work, Gorton & Partners continues to grow in exciting directions.
While these new projects were rolling in, Gorton & Partners also added new members to its family. In 2015, new employees joined our team and helped grow our staff to thirty-five. We will continue to grow in the New Year and are excited to welcome our newest employee this month.
We look back upon 2015 with a mixture of pride and excitement. The growth and the projects, both old and new, give us a sense of accomplishment as well as the desire to continue the hard work and dedication that got us to this point. We will take the momentum we have gained and jump into 2016 with eagerness. We look forward to furthering our already strong relationships with our current clients and beginning fresh relationships with clients, old and new.
Like Janus, we are able to look backward and forward as this new year begins; we are lucky enough to do so with fondness and smiles upon our faces. We hope the same for all of you.
A very happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year from all of us at Gorton & Partners.
