As the Military Project Director, John has also managed projects, as part of a larger team, that focused on Construction Management QC from start through to completion on major projects. As the ORB brand we have also designed and built "award winning " multi-family housing developments like Siku Basin Army Base, Fort Wainwright, Alaska, Denali Village Army Family Housing, Fort Wainwright, Alaska and most recently, all 4 phases for the largest family housing project at Eielson Air Force Base, Fairbanks, AK. All homes, in each development, were designed for high durability and required little maintenance using the latest understanding in sustainable building and energy efficiency.

The homes were built in accordance with Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) requirements and standards, and were designed to achieve a LEED Silver rating under the U.S. Green Building Council's "LEED for Homes" rating system. The system promotes the design and construction of high-performance green homes, which use less energy, water, and natural resources, create less waste, and are more durable and comfortable for occupants.

My team has been - and will continue to be - a member of WRPA because we share the belief that parks and recreational facilities are vital to the physical, social, and cultural health of our communities. Whether we're designing for a pool, a senior center, or a housing project, we consider the diverse aspects of a community and strive to enrich and strengthen its connections through our work. WRPA also shares our dedication to collaboration, a value that is critical both to understanding the fabric of the communities impacted by our projects and to designing innovative solutions. We are grateful for the opportunity WRPA conferences afford us to partake in excellent collaborative conversations with clients, vendors, and colleagues. Being a member of WRPA provides opportunities to renew our energies, motivates us to keep getting better, and reminds us to always consider how the work we do can better our communities.

Capabilities Statement

INNOVA Architects - DCT Fife, WA at Freeman Road

Two adjacent buildings designed by INNOVA Architects, Inc. for DCT Industrial this year along Freeman Road in Fife. Both buildings are near completion and the spaces are actively engaged in tenant leases.

Building A, is a 152,325 SF Tilt-Up with 30' clear height, 26 dock doors and 2 at-grade doors.

Building B was designed as a 239,805 SF Tilt-Up with 32' clear height, 60 dock doors and 4 at-grade doors. What made the build of this shell exciting was changes required to accommodate the building's first tenant. Redesign during construction was carefully orchestrated among the team to add a new at-grade door and ramp.

INNOVA Architects provided site planning, architectural and structural design on this project while teaming with Barghausen for civil engineering and Soundview Consultants for buffer enhancements about Wapato Creek.
