"We see continued growth in the Northwest within the markets that we specialize," said Bill Strong, principal and marketing director for Mahlum Architects. "The ever-expanding young generation mixed with the aging of our educational facilities means continued work in our schools and universities. Also, rapidly changing technology, new demands on the number of beds needed in a hospital, and the growth of the aged population means continued work in healthcare."

Mahlum Architects has grown in the last year from 95 to 110 people in both offices, and gross billings now stand at $22.5 million.

"The major goal of the firm is expanding our ownership and leadership," said marketing partner Bill Strong. "New associates were announced in mid-2002 and two new owners-shareholders were identified from the existing principals. Other goals include becoming more known for our expertise and knowledge of sustainability practices."

Some present projects include Coe Elementary School for Seattle School District; Liberty High School for Hillsboro School District in Oregon, a new comprehensive high school designed to be broken into four small schools; Sacred Heart Medical Center, Spokane, a new children's hospital addition plus an addition for a new women's center and surgery complex; Truman High School for Federal Way School District, the first new small school concept high school in Washington state; a new student housing complex of 190 units at University of California/Davis, Sacramento; restoration of historic Cleveland High School for Seattle School District; and Rogue Valley Medical Center, Medford, Ore., a new bed tower and emergency department.
