David Judge AIA has joined RMC Architects as a Project Architect. Judge received a Bachelor of Science in Architecture in 2010 from A. Alfred Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Michigan. He received a Master of Architecture in 2018 from the College of Built Environments, University of Washington, specializing in materials and fabrication. He brings this focus to his projects, using renewable resources and premanufacturing to cut down on construction time and materials waste on-site. For RMC, Judge will utilize his knowledge of Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) design and construction while working on the Bellingham Public Schools District Office Building. He has volunteered with the Peace Corps and Architects Without Borders and is looking forward to using his skills as a designer at RMC to help address homelessness and improve the quality of life in the Bellingham community.

Nathan Leigh has joined RMC Architects as a Design Professional. Leigh graduated from the University of Oregon in 2018 with a Bachelor of Architecture degree and a minor in Planning, Public Policy and Management. His architectural studies focused on sustainability and how buildings impact communities. For RMC, Leigh will be working on two Bellingham projects—an addition to the Whatcom County Courthouse and Phase Two of Cordata Park. He is a recipient of the Freeman Fellowship for study in Asia, where he worked as a graphic and web designer for Youth Education for Development and Peace in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Leigh also provided volunteer design consultation and documentation services on educational projects in Cambodia. He believes that his philanthropic experience gained abroad will complement RMC’s passion for community-focused building design.
