Founding Principal Jim Coughlin retired this summer after 28 years with the firm and more than 40 years in the AEC industry.
Jim’s career as a structural engineer is an impressive one. He feels blessed to have worked with the best owners, owner’s representatives, developers, architects, contractors, and engineering colleagues in the region on myriad projects. Jim served on the Bellevue College Foundation Board for many years, and serves his alma mater as a long-standing member of WSU’s Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture Executive Leadership Board. There, he established the Coughlin Distinguished Professorship in Structural Engineering. Jim has also been working with WSU Dean Mary Rezac’s committee dedicated to replacing or modernizing the Voiland College precinct on the Pullman campus. The first building, funded by corporate and individual donors and the state legislature, will go into construction in March of 2024. Jim also serves as a WSU Foundation Board Director.
