What is your Name & Title/Role 

Rachael Hope Watland Meyer, Weber Thompson’s new Principal of Landscape Architecture

You just joined Weber Thompson as our new Landscape Architecture Principal. What brought you here? 

Weber Thompson is such a great group of collaborative people and awesome projects! As the Landscape Architect on most of the projects in the office I get to work with pretty much everyone and every project. It is such a great opportunity for me!

What about this new role excites you the most? 

I’m excited by the office’s focus on sustainability and pushing each project to do more to improve our environment. It needs to be a driver in everything we do, especially with our urban landscapes.

What has been your favorite project? 

The Bullitt Center and McGilvra Place Park, the first commercial living building and first living park, respectively, have been most influential on how I approach landscape design and team collaboration. These projects were cutting edge in their ultimate design, but also in the process to get there.

Why Landscape Architecture?  Continue reading “Meet the Staff: Rachael Meyer”

What is your Name & Title/Role? Bernadette Rubio, Interior Design Principal

You were just promoted! What about this new role excites you the most?

I’ve been with WT for almost four years and have been part of an incredible group of designers. Carrie Smith has been instrumental in making that happen and I learned a lot from working alongside her. What I’m really excited about is building upon that success, taking the WTid team to the next level and helping each of our team members flourish as designers.

What has been your favorite project?

My favorite project is a tossup between 4730 California Apartments in West Seattle and Pike Motorworks in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. Both projects were urban infill projects developed by The Wolff Company. Each project design was inspired by the uniqueness of their respective neighborhoods.

These projects were successful because the entire design team, especially the client, stayed true to the concept and were committed to executing the design throughout the process. It’s a testament to a great client/designer/contractor team relationship. Continue reading “Meet the Staff: Bernadette Rubio”

Jeanna Stone Marketing InternFor the last few months, the Weber Thompson marketing department has benefitted from the assistance of Marketing Intern Jeanna Stone. Jeanna has penned articles for the blog, submitted award entries, posted to social media (check out our Instagram account if you haven’t seen it lately) and most excitingly, has infused the WT Intranet redesign effort with a fresh burst of energy. Next week, Jeanna will begin a new chapter as a full-time A/E/C marketer at Callison. We will miss her greatly but wish her the best of luck in her next adventure.

Jeanna Stone, Marketing Intern

How long have you worked at Weber Thompson and what is your favorite thing about working here?

I’ve been at WT for almost five months, and by far my favorite thing has been the people. The environment is quirky and relaxed, the people are hilarious and hardworking, and we know how to throw an excellent party.

What project(s) are you working on at the moment?

The biggest project I’m working on now is setting up WT with an intranet that is user friendly, readily accessible, and provides employees with all the information that they need on and off site. Continue reading “Meet the Staff: Jeanna Stone”

Meet the Staff: Erin Hatch

Erin HatchEarlier this spring, we promoted seven individuals, and have been getting to know more about them through our ‘Meet the Staff’ series. This week, we interviewed Marketing Manager and new Associate Erin Hatch. Learn more about her in this Q & A.

Erin Hatch, Marketing Manager, Associate

How long have you worked at Weber Thompson and what is your favorite thing about working here?

I’ve worked at Weber Thompson just over three years. My favorite thing about WT is working with approachable, smart, creative people who are passionate about solving problems through good design. This industry can be cutthroat and judgmental, but this firm doesn’t tolerate that attitude. It’s an extremely supportive environment.

What project(s) are you working on at the moment?

I work on a wide variety of projects. Every day is different, and I always have to expect the unexpected. From keeping our website and blog updated to working with our leadership team on big picture strategy, I get to have my fingers in many different pies. (And I love pie, so it works out well!)

You were recently promoted! What does this mean to you?

I love working for a company that truly values my opinions, listens to employees at all levels, and has provided me with support and professional development opportunities to grow in my career. When I came to Weber Thompson a little over three years ago, my role was production design. I had a little marketing experience and loads of optimism and enthusiasm, and my manager recognized that I could contribute more to the team. I never imagined I’d receive as much support and recognition as I have. It’s been amazing. Continue reading “Meet the Staff: Erin Hatch”
