With one office in Spokane, it has always been our policy to remain relatively small (5 to 9 people). This size allows principals of the firm to meet with clients and to take an active role in the design and total development of the project. We believe this structure provides continuity and principal involvement for ensuring our clients’ objectives are addressed and incorporated into their projects.
