paulsen building Tenant improvement Expansion

We were on site this week doing a punch list of a tenant improvement expansion project in the Paulsen Building. Things are looking great and the space is ready for the furniture installation next week!


Bri was on site checking out the progress at Northwestern Mutual's new location! Drywall is being installed and she completed an electrical walk through to verify all locations. Things are looking great and we are excited to watch this project continue to develop! Take a look at more of the progress here.


Last week, we were on site at the new Washington Trust Bank LSC & Department Services location finalizing the last minute details! This new space was designed around WTB's core values with the addition of custom graphics and bright colors to create an inspiring workplace. Congratulations WTB on your new space!


Design Source traveled to Walla Walla to explore the construction site of the new Women and Children's Center. We are extremely excited to watch this project's process and can't wait to see the final product, but we are most excited about the doors opening to provide shelter for those who need it!

We would love to invite you to take a look at their campaign Gift of Grace and follow the link below.


Northwestern Mutual

Construction is moving along quickly for the new Northwestern Mutual space located in the  Pinecroft Business Park in the Spokane Valley.  Divcon Inc. is constructing the building using tilt-up concrete construction. Tilt-up construction is the fastest growing method for low-rise commercial construction in the US due to it's ability to provide faster construction at a lower cost without sacrificing a great structural shell and durable exterior.  To learn more about this construction method, check out Divcon, Inc's website at: Stay tuned for more photos as this build out progresses.  We can't wait to see the gorgeous views of the Spokane River from the upper floor!


Congratulations to 5th Ave Dental and Lab Station 32 on your new space! This space located inside the Washington Medical Building was completely remodeled utilizing DIRTT modular walls and casework which provide the highest quality of fit and finish with the ability to be reconfigured in the future.  The end result is a modern, fresh, state of the art dental clinic and lab that will serve patients of the Spokane area for many years to come.


Congratulations to Washington Trust Bank on their new Manito Branch. This beautiful state of the art building boasts the latest in banking design. The floor to ceiling windows encase a customer focused floor plan including a community space with coffee bar and technology integrated elements throughout. We enjoyed being a part of the project team along with WAG Architecture and Associated Construction. 

Wonder Market: Artifact Exploration

After being asked to join this project by Wolfe Architecture group, we jumped right in to investigate what we have to work with.  We were thrilled to explore the old Wonder Bread building just North of the Spokane River and we have found artifacts throughout to re-purpose in the new design of the space. Some of our favorites are the old wood ceiling, over scaled metal warehouse sliding doors, large conveyor belt and scale, and the painted sink wall (Thank you ZNation!) We cannot wait to transform this space into a unique mixed use/ multi tenant building for the Spokane community! #AdaptiveReuse #CoolestOfficeSpaceInSpokane #GettingInspired #Spokane #zNation

Christian Aid Center: WOMEN & CHILDREN'S CENTER

Design Source, Inc. and Architects West Inc. have the honor in partnering together to help build a new shelter for the Christian Aid Center in Walla Walla, Washington. The Christian Aide Center provides restoration and love to men, woman, and their families in need. They support an environment of dignity and hope while providing the structure that helps break the cycle of addictions and domestic abuse. The new Women and Children’s Center will be a new building that promises a chance to be safe, to experience dignity, to live in a caring community, and to find restoration. Monetary donations and volunteer hours are the driving factors that help keep the rescue center going.

As material boards are coming together, we are getting more excited to help the Christian Aid Center in a way we know best; providing an environment that is comfortable and inviting to help with life changes for families in need.

We would love to invite you to take a look at their campaign Gift of Grace and follow the link below.

Wheatland Bank Progress

The corporate offices of Wheatland Bank are progressing nicely! The artwork ties everything together, adds personality and a dash of whimsy! 


More congratulations are in order as another Washington Trust Bank project has just been completed on the South Hill. The Lincoln Heights branch received an interior update complete with state of the art technology that is at the forefront of banking design. This customer centered branch features an interactive kiosk and a teller station design that promotes open interaction. Stop by and check out the amazing transformation.
