News & Events

We are proud to be celebrating our 20th anniversary this year!

Throughout that period, we have increased the diversity and reach of our practice, performing projects in six different countries around the world. In addition to International Schools in Asia, we have expanded our educational work in the northwest. Our most recent work includes a $30 million bond project in La Grande, Oregon, the Templeton Core project for the Tigard/Tualatin School District, renovation of Agate Hall at the University of Oregon and multiple projects at Portland Community College. Beyond education, we have expanded the urban planning side of our practice, working with Portland’s Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, Metro, Tri-Met and the Seattle Department of Transportation to help devise sustainable strategies for managing the explosive growth we are experiencing in the region. We are riding the apartment boom with numerous multi-family projects under construction and many on the boards. Our portfolio of private clubs has expanded and now includes major renovations throughout the state.
