The updates to the City of Post Falls’ Black Bay Depot activity center are complete! We worked with the City of Post Falls Parks and Recreation to transform the building formerly housing the Senior Center Thrift Store into a dynamic, flexible activity center to meet their programming needs. Interior improvements included adding activity rooms, an entry area, public restrooms, and accessory storage rooms. Our landscape architects made improvements to the parking lot areas and designed a back yard community learning area.

Completed in 2009, the U.S. Armed Forces Reserve Center at Fairchild Air Force Base was designed for joint use by the U.S. Army Reserve and Washington Army National Guard. This design-build project with Garco Construction, Inc. consisted of six new buildings and a covered two-bay vehicle wash rack. Designers were tasked with fulfilling multiple facility needs in one project, from a community and event center to a flammable storage facility. The resulting complex checked all of the boxes and will serve FAFB’s needs for many years to come. The key to a successful design-build project of this size and scope is finding alternative solutions that meet and exceed individual requirements while maintaining the program budget and schedule.

Spokane County Medical Examiner’s Office Ribbon Cutting

“This isn’t really a new medical examiner facility, it’s our first medical examiner facility…For the last 21 years, since the medical examiners’ office was converted from a coroner system in 1999, we worked in two rented facilities that were 1/8 mile apart. For all of those 21 years, we did a lot of ‘making do.’ Obviously, all of that ends with this facility. We won’t be ‘making do’ anymore.” – Dr. Sally Aiken, Chief Medical Examiner, Spokane County Medical Examiner’s Office. We celebrated their facility’s completion last week, and are proud to be involved in a project that will serve our community, recruit young professionals to our area, and further reinforce Spokane County as a health science hub.
