When Big Picture was asked by Webcor Builders to put together their annual holiday event, we were excited to find out that we would be setting up the AV show and presenting their awards videos at the new Transbay Transit Center site. Set to open in early 2018, the site represents not only Webcor values, but the values that we at Big Picture embrace and help our clients promote. And we were the first ones in there.
