Transit engineering firm HNTB signs new lease to support business expansion

The employee-owned infrastructure firm HNTB signed a new office lease in Bellevue to assist with the growing business. On Jan. 18, HNTB employees moved from their current office space, located at 600 108th Ave. NE, to their new space at 777 108th Ave. NE.

The new location is near the upcoming East Link light rail station, providing easily accessible transportation options. In the past 24 months, HNTB saw an increase in employees from 215 to 275 to meet demands for transportation planning, engineering, and program and construction management.

Clients in the Puget Sound region include WDOT, Sound Transit, the City of Bellevue, Port of Seattle and the Seattle DOT, among others. Signature regional projects include Sound Transit’s East Link Extension, Lynnwood Link Extension Projects, Alaskan Way Viaduct Replacement Program, and the second Tacoma Narrows Bridge, among others.

“After 41 years in the same building, we are thrilled to kick off 2022 with the opening of our new office space in downtown Bellevue. Designed by HNTB interior designers, our new space reflects the post-pandemic office environment as we see it, with many areas for collaboration, learning, drop-in accommodation and socializing,” said Kevin Collins, Professional Engineer, HNTB Seattle office leader and senior vice president.

The new location holds space for 250 employees at a time. According to Collins, many of the HNTB staff work in client offices, construction sites, or partially remote from home.

The firm expects continued growth in the future to meet client needs. To learn more about the firm, visit
