About Us

Established in 1973 by architect Mike Underwood, as Underwood & Associates focused on design/build projects, which helped provide real world experience that drives the firm’s efficient design and simplicity of construction in today’s projects. Underwood & Associates, LLC offers fully integrated design and construction phase services from planning and feasibility studies through to project completion and occupancy space planning. The building information management and design software, Revit, provides the design team with the tools to fully understand and share the design and project details with consultants, owners, and contractors. The design team’s quality of service, attention to detail, and client satisfaction has paved the way for a long and successful relationship with the community both professionally and personally.

Our bond with the community has included providing pro bono services to organizations such as Skagit, Snohomish, and Island counties Habitat for Humanity as well as the local non-profit ballet school, DanceWorks, and service clubs such as Soroptimist International. We are proud to share our skills with the community.

Underwood & Associates is licensed in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and California. The capable and well experienced staff consistently lay the foundation for successful projects and satisfied clients.
