Founding Principals

John McLean, NCARB, Managing Principal Architect
Washington State University B-Arch, 1997; IDP 1997-2007

The son of a retired hospital CEO and art teacher, healthcare architecture seems a natural fit. As Principal Architect, John oversees the coordination of owner and consultant relationships throughout the duration of the project. With a sense of vision and particular strength in design, programming, communication and big picture thinking, John unites his personal experience with the skills of his team to bring even the most complicated of projects to completion.

Off-hours you'll probably find John in a remote stream or the nearest ice rink.
