5 Office Space Architects/Space Planners/Designers

5 architects space plannersSeattle is lucky to have 10’s (if not 100’s) of quality and educated architects/architecture firms.  Below is a list of 5 architects who I have worked with and feel comfortable recommending for space planning and design services related to office tenant improvements in Seattle.

  1. Weaver Architecture:  Specifically, I have enjoyed working with Jarrod Arbini on a couple of projects.
  2. Marvin Stein Associates:  I’ve worked on dozens of requirements with Steve Navarro and appreciate his understanding and efficiency.
  3. JPC Architects:  If I had to guess, I would think that JPC does more office tenant improvement design than any other firm in the region.  Mike Jones is a great project coordinator that I’ve worked with many times for Seattle projects.
  4. SKB Architects:  SKB might be the most popular design team as of late.  Shannon Rankin is a talented principal there and great to work with.
  5. Allbee Romein:  I’ve worked with Carla Allbee recently and she provides excellent service.

The above list is a sample of quality people to choose from for office tenant improvement design services.

When I have the opportunity to use an architect I always consider the following:

  • the willingness to perform needed work within industry standard pricing
  • the building type(s) being considered
  • current projects or recent experience in the building or industry type
  • the size of the project
  • the personality types of the decision makers
  • the overall goals of the project
  • my client’s desire for a cheap & quick job vs. high-end & thorough

The design phase of an office tenant improvement project can be very time consuming but also fun –enjoy.

    This may not be the best place to ask this, but I’d like to find out if I’m eligible for a higher priced rental and I can’t figure out how to find a local, highly regarded property management firm… have you ever heard of this company? They’re located in Sacramento, CA not too far from my office and I can’t find reviews on them – Sacramento Property Management Consultants, 600 H St Sacramento, CA 95814 (916) 282-3103.

      Hi Keli,

      Unfortunatley I don’t know. My focus is in the Seattle market, you’d have to ask someone in Sacramento.

      Thanks for reading!
