It has been a very busy year for DCI Engineers. With new projects, new hires, and even a new office, the expansion of our operations in the past year is a testament to the great work that our employees do and the wonderful industry that surrounds us.
With the summer came the exciting news of the opening of our first Alaskan office in Anchorage. We are extremely thrilled about being able to provide our clients in Alaska with more hands-on engineering and continuing our mission of service, innovation, and value. With this office opening, came the transfer of one of Seattle’s Associate Principals, Paul Rogness. Having been raised in Alaska, Paul is excited to bring his family back to experience its natural beauty.
Beyond the opening of our ninth office, we have been working on a number of amazing projects around the United State and abroad. From Seattle to Bolivia, the projects we have been helping to design are as diverse and exciting as the cities that they are located in. Here is a brief sample:
North Lot Mixed-Use-Stadium Place: Seattle Washington, American Life, Inc.
N Habit: Belltown, Seattle, Washington, 3rd & Bell LLC (The first wood modular building in downtown Seattle.)

It has been an exciting summer for all of us at DCI Engineers, and although we are extremely serious about providing excellent engineering to all of our clients, we know that summers have always been a time for fun. Whether it is out at our annual golf tournament for Childhaven, at one of our company picnics, or a site visit to one of our projects, the quality of services we provide can only come from great people who love their work and are dedicated to providing excellent engineering all year around.
I would like to thank our employees for continuing to make DCI Engineers the firm that it is. It is incredible to see how their efforts, and the efforts of our clients, can help change the landscape of a city with structures that have been carefully designed to represent architectural beauty, craftsmanship, and sound engineering.
As DCI Engineers moves towards our 26th year it is important for us to remember those things that have made us successful in our first 25 years. Our philosophy demands that we provide service to our clients in a professional and timely manner, deliver innovation and progressive methods to best serve the needs of each customer, and measure the value of our service through cost reductions and improvements in constructability. Thank you all for an amazing past 25 years and I look forward to our future at DCI Engineers!
