INNOVA is a multi-disciplinary design firm that continues to lead in areas such as environmental sustainability by designing our buildings to be efficient, and compliant, with LEED standards. INNOVA provides sound data to enhance the design and development process and implement execution across the entire architectural, engineering, design, construction and planning landscape.
PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SECTOR EXPERTISE
Working with developers our practical realism, responsiveness and timely communication, plus focus on the bottom-line is key in helping to make projects work efficiently. Plus, as a proactive team member the value engineering ideas we bring to the table throughout the project life-cycle always provides a better return for our clients. It is indicative of our cooperative and collaborative approach that help our clients make informed business decisions.
INNOVA’s INDUSTRIAL EXPERTISE CONSISTENTLY BENEFITS PRIVATE AND GOVERNMENT DOD CLIENTS
Throughout every project cycle we help clients navigate a myriad of obstacles such as feasibility studies, planning, and permitting. We design industrial warehouses, manufacturing plants, distribution centers and aviation facilities, as well as, retail and service centers, for large trucks and farming equipment.
CIVIL, STRUCTURAL AND VALUE ENGINEERING
INNOVA provides cost-saving guidance, which begins with property evaluation, selection, and purchase. We are also a civil engineering firm, with land-use planning expertise, and design services for tenant improvements. We offer seamless end-to-end services that produce great results - on schedule. This includes extensive experience with design-build, distribution, production workflow, mechanization, automation, maintenance, and retail / service centers.
LEED certification is always an option for clients, upon request, in the planning process. Simplicity, effective solutions, and efficient outcomes are the results of listening carefully to our client and communicating well with our staff and teaming consultants. It shows in the perpetual improvements that are the direct result of cooperative collaboration with the same consultants over many years. We are known for building similar relationships with our clients.
For example, one KPI (key performance indicator) that we use as a measurement would be the number of RFIs (request for information) that we record per building. These RFIs are usually very low and directly related to construction details that impact efficiency in cost. This process evolves over the duration of a teaming relationship between the architects, engineers, and general contractors. One relationship, which has grown over 25 years, has produced single-digit RFI's, per building, designed and built. At INNOVA it is about the trust, integrity, and confidence we have in each other and our team that helps contribute to a positive outcome.
"SUPERIOR QUALITY CONTROL TRANSLATES INTO DELIVERING THE DESIRED PRODUCT ON TIME AND WITHIN BUDGET - CONSISTENTLY!"

ACHIEVING SUCCESSFUL RESULTS FOR THE SAKE OF COMMUNITY
Another benefit of working well with so many different professionals in the AEC industry (architecture, engineering, and construction), is the quality of the people, and their generosity and willingness to help support causes that matter to our communities. It's not just about developing and building tangible structures, it is about creating an eco-system that is all-inclusive and helps to meet social needs, promotes waste reduction, and helps our community thrive.

West Valley Distribution Center, Sumner, WA
This project is a 117,000 SF distribution center for Avenue 55. Site challenges included wet lands and the fact it is a narrow site. We proposed obtaining grading easements on the north that were successfully obtained thereby allowing us to gain more building coverage, and he negotiated some variances with the city of Sumner in terms of fire hydrant locations and in terms of meeting the design guidelines, and also found ways to stay out of wetland previously thought would need to be impacted, all which helped our client in having a better pro-forma on this project.
John Deere - Washington Tractor, Sumner, WA
This project is a 35,000 SF new sales and service center for John Deere and is to be located along highway 410 in Sumner. We were able to research records and find a prior development agreement for the site, which the client was not aware of, which allowed our client to be vested and not need to treat 50% of his site for water quality, and to be vest and not need any storm detention.
Tamarack Distribution Center, Sumner, WA
This project is a 200,000 SF distribution center for Panattoni. Special Civil design issues included negotiations with the City of Sumner for R.O.W. dedications and easements, and our negotiations allowed us to gain more building coverage by granting an easement to the City instead of granting a R.O.W. We also worked closely with City of Sumner engineering staff regarding the City Design of the new street improvements that we are connecting to. Because of sensitive downstream "fish bearing streams" we had to design for enhanced water quality treatment of all storm water, but we were able to specify a system recently approved by DOE, to meet this requirements, with less
expense than a traditional design.
Orchard Distribution Center, Tacoma, WA
This is a 550,000 SF distribution Center for Avenue 55, but is in the preliminary stages of design. The challenges include entitlement issues with dozens of easements on the title to be removed and or rewritten, INNOVA has been involved with these entitlement issues, meeting with Title Company, Tacoma Power and Water to get city owned utilities relocated, and meeting with the adjacent landfill to get easements and monitoring wells removed. Another challenge is to provide a new 600 foot long road improvement to provide better access.
