For

VINCE OJALA  A.I.A.

 

Design, Forensic Architecture, Project Management, Code Expert

 

I have been practicing building design and Architecture in the State of Washington since 1976.  I became licensed as an Architect in Washington State in 1984 .

Professional affiliations: American Institute of Architects, NCARB

 

In the years 1983-1988 I was the sole proprietor of  VINCE OJALA ARCHITECTS, a business which was located in Pioneer Square.

 

Since 1976 I have been the principle designer of  custom residences, day care centers, alternative high schools, condominiums, building façade renovations, retail businesses. historical renovations and residential and commercial remodels and have worked as a  design consultant collaborating on various types of projects.  In addition, since 2002,  I have also led intrusive building investigations, written reports for repair scopes, produced design, detailing and other documents for the actual renovation, repair, and for exterior redesign. I applied for and obtained building permits, conducted construction administration including construction  meetings. I have met with home owner associations, developers, attorneys and realtors to present repair and design solutions,  on-site repair solutions and have conducted contractor selection and project bidding.

 

I can provide excellent liaison  skills with clients, contractors, and building officials to facilitate permit acquisition and design and construction clarification. I have a good skill level with AutoCad and good freehand sketching skills.
