Transit engineering firm HNTB signs new lease to support business expansion

Employee-owned infrastructure company HNTB has signed a new office lease in Bellevue to help grow the business. On January 18, HNTB employees moved from their current office space, located at 600 108and Ave. NE, at their new space at 777 108and Avenue NE.

The new location is near the future East Link light rail station, providing easily accessible transportation options. Over the past 24 months, HNTB has seen its workforce grow from 215 to 275 to meet demands for transportation planning, engineering, and program and construction management.

Customers in the Puget Sound area include WDOT, Sound Transit, City of Bellevue, Port of Seattle, and Seattle DOT, among others. Iconic 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 excited to kick off 2022 with the opening of our new office space in downtown Bellevue. Designed by interior designers at HNTB, 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, P.Eng., HNTB Seattle office manager and senior vice president.

The new location can accommodate 250 employees at a time. According to Collins, many of HNTB’s staff work in client offices, on construction sites or partially away from home.

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