Structural Civic Seismic Engineering They work on challenging projects alongside extraordinary people. Quality isn’t a checklist; it’s their mission. They’re big on giving back but not on writing press releases about it (we’ll take care of that part!). Their firm was founded on providing a unique level of service to their clients and having fun while doing it. With every project they undertake, these values remain at the heart of CPL’s everyday. Above all, they understand that no project can be successful without the highest degree of coordination and collaboration – and that is where they excel. They provide thorough, detailed, complete documents. Our approach involves all key stakeholders in placing project goals, objectives, budget and schedule firmly at the center of the design process.

You don’t need to live or work in proximity to our Seattle, WA headquarters. As a global organization, we use technology to work across city, state, and country borders to get the job done.
We believe we are only as good as the people, and ideas, that we surround ourselves with. By promoting transparency and idea sharing, we aim to challenge ourselves and others to conduct generative conversations about the work we do, on the regular.
