Project Profiles


Client: University of Washington Bothell
Development Manager: Coast Real Estate Services
Architect: JPC Architects
Location: Bothell, WA

Description: A 30,000 sq. ft. renovation and a creative adaptive reuse of a physical rehabilitation facility built in the late 1960’s. The facility was completely remodeled for occupancy by the University of Washington Bothell to accommodate efficient and comfortable staff and faculty offices and to serve as a welcoming orientation center for prospective students and visitors. The staff and faculty offices are housed in what were originally resident suites. These suites went through an extensive renovation and upgrade to create highly supportive shared office environments for the staff and faculty. At the entrance is a centralized and approachable ‘welcome desk’ where visitors are directed to support functions and resources such as the adjacent cashiers office, Admissions and Registration offices, faculty offices, administrative offices, a multi-purpose room, and student amenities.
"When this project began, we really could not have imagined the total transformation of space from a physical rehabilitation facility to a highly functioning office environment that will support student growth at the University of Washington Bothell. It is amazing! The University of Washington Bothell was particularly fortunate to have the highest quality project team. They were efficient problem solvers and supportive advocates. The Foushée team can be credited with holding together all the pieces of this multi-faceted project. At every step of the way, they were able to provide creative solutions to meet our project budget and timeline goals. From top to bottom, the project was treated with respect, quality, and attention to detail. There is one word that comes to mind when I reflect on Foushée's contributions to this project, calm. There was never a sense of hurriedness or panic, even when there may have been very valid reasons for it. Thank you for supporting UWB with excellence."
