In 1977, Emick Howard & Associates was conceived in hopes of shaping the future of architecture in the Pacific Northwest. After a merger with Paul Seibert & Associates in 1992, and now nearly four decades after its conception, EHS Design has made its way into a firm that’s done just that. We chatted with Co-founder and CEO Jack Emick about his influences, insights, and challenges and developed an outline of what led him, and his company across a successful 37-year history.

A/E/C Business Development – The Decade Ahead
SMPS LUNCHEON – JUNE 17, 2014
By Julie Engel 

SMPS held its monthly luncheon at the Harbor Club Tuesday, June 17, 2014, discussing its new book: A/E/C Business Development: The Decade Ahead, along with a presentation by Michelle Fizpatrick on SMPS Foundation’s research and  how the implications of research affect the industry. I learned quite a bit about business development in the industry, and I wanted to share some of the insights I gained at the event about clients.

Clients are now sophisticated and educated.

Buyers are different now; some have even hired the people we let go during the recession. They are now asking, “what is the value of your services? What can you do for me?”

In the modern business, office culture is changing. With the rise of the open collaborative office, it is critical for building owners to be part of the conversation, but even more so for a designer to be. Here at EHS Design, our principals and architectural and interior design team are committed to not only understanding, but also influencing modern office culture.

Today, building owners are trying to structure their spaces to make them more attractive for the new tenant, and in turn, make a space that will align with creative industries.

In order to gain insights on other’s perspectives of the local trends and challenges of the modern office, EHS Interior Designer Karlee Coble attended the Creative Office Summit on May 21. This event discussed the future of commercial downtown real estate, and how it impacts different industries, business owners, and developers.
