Rich Whealan

AIA, Principal

Seattle Studio

Rich Whealan joined Miller Hull in 1994 and has served on many of the firm’s more complex projects from teaching and research laboratories to aviation. Recent projects include the International Arrivals Facility at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and the Environmental Health & Safety Facility at the University of California, Santa Cruz. He works closely with building owners and consulting engineers to understand programming and building system requirements for complicated program elements and to integrate building systems with the architectural solution. Rich’s emphasis on integrated building systems and technical performance during the design phase and his follow-through during construction results in a building that is beautiful, functional and maintainable.

Rich received a Bachelor of Architecture from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo with an academic year in Copenhagen through the Danish International Study program. He is an active member of the Society of College & University Planners, keeping up to date on best practices and trends within the higher education community. Rich consistently speaks at conferences locally, regionally and nationally, sharing his expertise in planning, design and project management.
