INNOVA is a multi-disciplinary design firm that continues to lead in areas such as environmental sustainability by designing our buildings to be efficient, and compliant, with LEED standards.
LEED certification is always an option for clients, upon request, in the planning process. Simplicity, effective solutions, and efficient outcomes are the results of listening carefully to our client and communicating well with our staff and teaming consultants. It shows in the perpetual improvements that are the direct result of cooperative collaboration with the same consultants over many years. We are known for building similar relationships with our clients.
For example, one KPI (key performance indicator) that we use as a measurement would be the number of RFIs (request for information) that we record per building. These RFIs are usually very low and directly related to construction details that impact efficiency in cost. This process evolves over the duration of a teaming relationship between the architects, engineers, and general contractors. One relationship, which has grown over 25 years, has produced single-digit RFI's, per building, designed and built. At INNOVA it is about the trust, integrity, and confidence we have in each other and our team that helps contribute to a positive outcome.
"SUPERIOR QUALITY CONTROL TRANSLATES INTO DELIVERING THE DESIRED PRODUCT ON TIME AND WITHIN BUDGET - CONSISTENLY!"

ACHIEVING SUCCESSFUL RESULTS FOR THE SAKE OF COMMUNITY
Another benefit of working well with so many different professionals in the AEC industry (architecture, engineering, and construction), is the quality of the people, and their generosity and willingness to help support causes that matter to our communities. It's not just about developing and building tangible structures, it is about creating an eco-system that is all-inclusive and helps to meet social needs, promotes waste reduction, and helps our community thrive.
FOOD LIFELINE WAREHOUSES, DISTRIBUTION CENTER AND HQ
Video tour before offices were built.
One recent project for Food Lifeline, a non-profit based in Seattle, WA, was a clear example of many people coming together to make the impossible possible. The journey to design, develop, build and, complete the two warehouses and office spaces for their new headquarters would not have been possible without the collaborative cooperation, communication, and generosity of many contributors in the process. Panattoni (developer), Sierra Construction (tilt-up building), INNOVA Architects (design) and JR Abbott Construction (tenant improvements) are just a few of many key contributors to this project.

Paul McCormick, INNOVA's CEO, was the Principal in Charge and provided architectural and structural engineering for this 330,000 SF distribution center. Paul Master Planned the building as part of a larger industrial park, taking into account that the property needed to be re-zoned. The property had to be annexed into another city, and Paul coordinated the dedication of the property to the city for roads and wetlands. Paul McCormick designed the buildings and utilized engineering creativity to omit X-braced frames and use concrete sheer walls instead.
Brian Ludwig, INNOVA's Director of Industrial Development, contributed greatly to this facility’s pre-design, and in the City of Sumner’s design review process. He provided permitting for architecture and civil and structural engineering, as well as construction documents, value engineering, quality control and ongoing coordination with the contractor, landscape architect, and sub-consultants.
