Scott Thompson passed away December 12th, 2017 after a long fight with cancer. We remember him as a great mentor and good friend, who cared deeply about the people at Weber Thompson, and made sure that everyone who worked for him had their contributions and worth acknowledged and celebrated before his own. He will be missed.
A Founding Principal at Weber Thompson, Scott Thompson retired at the end of 2015 with over 35 years of architectural and planning experience, specializing in high-density, urban infill and mixed-use buildings. He also worked on commercial structures, planned-unit developments, high-end condominiums, multifamily housing, hospitality projects, health clubs and custom single-family residences during his career.
Scott was Principal in Charge of many of Weber Thompson’s highly sustainable projects including Sunset Electric, Fremont Office Buliding, Ballard West and the multiple award-winning commercial project, The Terry Thomas. The Terry Thomas is a LEED Gold certified building located in South Lake Union that houses Weber Thompson’s LEED Platinum certified offices. The project has received international attention for its design and high- and low-tech sustainable strategies such as passive cooling, interior courtyard and daylighting.
Throughout his career, Scott worked with a range of clients from corporations to first-time developers, whom he guided through the complex design process to create highly successful finished projects. He is a former member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and was involved in the ACE mentoring program, working with high-school students who have an interest in architecture and engineering.
In addition to receiving his undergraduate education from the University of Hawaii, Scott also earned his Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Design from the University of Washington. He was a licensed architect in the states of Washington, Oregon, Hawaii, Idaho and California, and held his National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) certification. Scott was also a member of the Housing Development Consortium, an organization dedicated to affordable housing issues.
Principals Amanda Keating AIA, LEEP AP BD+C, and Jeff Reibman AIA, LEED AP BD+C will carry the mixed-use and sustainability torches moving forward. They are highly experienced architects who were both promoted to Weber Thompson's ownership team in 2015.
