Testimonials

“The team at EW was a joy to work with. They were respectful of our needs, supportive of our ambitious goals and patient in guiding us through two complex projects. They have the ability to bring together talented teams who can work effectively to create vibrant facilities that serve the needs of a diverse community.”

Mark Okazaki, Executive Director, Neighborhood House (Rainier Vista and High Point Centers)

“This development really stands apart from most farmworker housing: the building design, choice of materials, site layout, and resulting campus atmosphere all give the development a feeling of high quality and attention to design and detail.  I know that much of this is due to your creative vision, and to your technical ability to blend the physical needs of the housing provider and residents with your creative vision and sense of aesthetics.”

Mike Gempler, Executive Director, Washington Growers League (Mattawa Slope Seasonal Farmworker Housing)

“EW went to considerable lengths to ensure a great solution for the future residents, for the building and the site, and accomplished a sensitive fit with the neighborhood.”

Scott Kirkpatrick, Former Sound Transit TOD Manager (Korean Women’s Association’s Senior City – senior housing, community meeting, social service offices)

“The Puyallup Tribal Housing Authority worked with Environmental Works on the Elder Healthy Home and is working with them now on our Tahoma Longhouse project.  For each project, the Tribe had high goals for sustainable and culturally responsive design which were exceeded by EW’s team.  Both projects were designed in a very collaborative manner through a series of programming workshops and design options that allowed us to develop the projects to meet our specific requirements.”

Annette Bryan, Former Executive Director, Puyallup Tribal Housing Authority

“Environmental Works did a VERY good job keeping this project on budget, but also well designed — within very tight budget constraints.”
