W.PA Named Best Commercial Architect

Nov 16, 2023

We made top of the list as one of the "Best Commercial Architects" in Portland, OR. Works Progress Architecture (W.PA) has always prided ourselves on providing clients with financially feasible solutions without compromising design quality. Principal Carrie Strickland founded W.PA in 2005 with this business-savvy mindset, and for the past 18 years has worked predominately in private development within tight budgets.

We approach each project clearly and concisely with appropriate material choices and flexible building programs. W.PA has been at the forefront of urban planning initiatives in Oregon and California to broaden the use of mass timber in Type 1 and Type 2 construction due to its merits in sustainable building practices and cost-saving abilities. Adaptive reuse is another cost-effective strategy that we offer developers so they can explore the full range of possibilities for their projects.

Whether big or small, we can help you design on a dime. Our team of passionate, talented, and conscientious architects identify creative and responsive solutions. Being nimble is what sets us apart. W.PA is here to help bring your vision to life, affordably.
