A multifaceted architect and project manager, Grace Robinson has accomplished quite a bit across her nearly 31 years working in the industry. She has been with EHS for more than 10 years designing, implementing, and ensuring only the highest quality of work is put toward projects. And if she’s not overseeing the development of a new structure, she’s probably traveling across the country exploring national parks.
We chatted with Grace about her influences, insights, and challenges and developed an outline of what led her to her success today. For our newest installment of the EHS Design Casual Conversation Series, we present A Casual Conversation withGrace Robinson.
Now an integral part of the EHS team, Kari has been with our firm for more than 16 years; but, she has been planning, designing, and tuning interior environments as an interior designer for the better part of 20 years. And when she’s not working on a project, you may just find her creating some Shrinky Dink jewelry. We chatted with Kari about her influences, insights, and challenges and developed an outline of what led her to her success today.

Upon hearing about Paul Schell’s passing this last Sunday I turned on the local news report in time to hear this as the lead story. His many accomplishments and qualities that all of Seattle knows: past Seattle mayor, lawyer, philanthropic leader, visionary, and developer.
It’s as a developer I knew him best, as the head of Cornerstone Development. He hired EHS as one of the design consultants for the ambitious waterfront development which Cornerstone had embarked upon. We worked for him for several years on many projects. It was a bold move on his part to hire a small little known design firm to be part of that endeavor. He treated everyone with the utmost respect but required a high degree of effort, design excellence, and a rare component – FUN. To him, Cornerstone, tenants, investors, consultants were family and we worked together harmoniously.
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.
For this week’s edition of the EHS Design Casual Conversation Series, we present A Casual Conversation withJack Emick.

We chatted with Tom about his influences, insights, and challenges and discovered what led him to his success today.

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?”
