On July 1, we welcomed Studio Cascade to the SCJ family. They’re an award-winning team of planners and designers out of Spokane who are big picture thinkers and visionaries.
What does that mean for you? More High-Quality Services!
“Studio Cascade is highly regarded for their comprehensive plans, subarea plans, and master plans, adding greater depth to our Planning Group,” says SCJ Alliance co-founder Jean Carr. “They are particularly known for their public participation strategies.”
SCJ Planning Manager Dan Penrose shares, “I have known Studio Cascade founder Bill Grimes for more than 20 years and have long been impressed with his approach to planning, community engagement and urban design. I’m thrilled we can come together in a way that strengthens both companies and enhances what we can offer clients.”
Some of Studio Cascade’s high-visibility projects include the Bainbridge Island Waterfront Park and City Dock Master Plan, San Juan County vision assessment, award-winning Port Angeles Waterfront Transportation Improvement Project, Fayetteville Downtown Plan in North Carolina, and the Council Bluffs Arts and Culture District Plan in Iowa.
Same Client-Centered Focus
“This is a tremendous opportunity for our firms, our clients, and our employees,” continues Jean. “We both share a commitment to client relationships and quality work, treasure our employees, and value collaboration across disciplines.”
Bill adds, “We have great alignment on culture and approach to projects, with client relationships of paramount importance to both of us.”
Our people are now in offices across the state. In addition to Spokane, SCJ has offices in Lacey, Seattle, Ballard, Centralia, Vancouver, and Wenatchee, as well as Boulder, Colorado. Wherever you’re located, team members in each SCJ office work together virtually, creating dynamic teams that seamlessly collaborate with other.
Bill sums it up, saying, “Combining our firms provides an opportunity to grow and achieve more together than we could alone.”
Welcome to our Studio Cascade team members!
