RMC Architects announces promotions

RMC Architects is pleased to announce the following promotions:

Christopher Mead AIA, LEED AP to Associate. Since joining RMC in 2005, Chris has distinguished himself as an approachable and trusted project leader and mentor. He has worked on a variety of project types for the firm, including the recently completed Multicultural Center at Western Washington University (WWU) – a collaborative project with Opsis Architecture. His affinity for multi-family housing has led to his contribution on projects such as Walton Place One and Two and Eleanor Place in downtown Bellingham, and Cornerstone in Barkley Village.

“Housing is one of the great services that architecture can provide to a community and I appreciate the opportunity to design quality places for people of all income levels to live in,” Mead says.

As an Associate, Mead plans to help grow and further define RMC’s firm culture, help educate and bring new staff into that culture, and engage more with the Bellingham community in a role of service.

Jason Williard AIA, LEED AP to Associate. Jason’s role at RMC has evolved since joining the firm in 2006, demonstrating both a commitment to the long-term success of the firm and an affable leadership style. He has worked on some of RMC’s most notable projects, including Peoples Bank in the Barkley Financial District, the Rocket Building in the Fairhaven Historic District, Spring Street Landing on the Friday Harbor Waterfront, and Bellingham Public Schools District Office Building, currently in progress.

Williard is looking forward to leveraging his role as Associate to help the firm with marketing – bringing in new work, exploring new avenues, and maintaining client relationships. “I appreciate RMC’s diverse portfolio and look forward to continuing to help the firm expand in that direction,” he says. Along with Mead, he will play a significant part in community involvement and staff mentoring. RMC Architects offers planning and design services in Bellingham and beyond. Established in 1986, we believe architecture serves to lift, bind, and sustain us—building strong communities.
