I have had the pleasure of working with Evolution Architecture in Portland since 2015 on a variety of building envelope, waterproofing, and roof projects. They are an essential element of the job. We’ve developed a great partnership over the years, and their dedication to our portfolio is evident in their communication and work product. We appreciate their responsiveness and the creative solutions they bring to the table.
My experience with Evolution spans over many years and involved multiple projects during the time. They are very professional in all aspects of their business. They are very detail oriented in their approach to projects, which I have found to be very beneficial to the overall flow of the project. Their contract administration during the course of the project is one of the best in the industry. They are very timely in their responses to communication, which is critical in keeping projects on schedule. Without hesitation, I can recommend Evolution Architecture for any type of project that involves the building envelope and/or replacement of the exterior façade.
Having worked with the Evolution Architecture team on multiple projects & pursuits, PCL has come to rely on them as a trusted project partner. Three main attributes stand out when working with Kris, Travis, Craig & Ralph; those are consistency, transparency, and reliability. The EA team provides a diverse and unique make-up in their background in waterproofing, sealants, façade assemblies, general contracting, and architecture. This background has allowed the EA team to support PCL on small, large & complex efforts. Numerous times over the past year, Evolution has been front-of-mind for PCL when a building Owner or property manager has requested recommendations for a prime consultant. Being a smaller and boutique firm, their company principals and primary stakeholders remain hands-on and always available for on-site meetings & inspections, and helping run point on solving problems. The PCL team does look forward to working on future projects.
I have been working with Evolution Architecture for the past 5 years and they have been an integral part of my facilities repairs. Their expansive knowledge and repair solutions have been outstanding. They have successfully solved complicated multiple historical leak situations that I had been plagued with for years. They are a true asset to all that engage their services.
Evolution has been great to work with across a variety of projects over the past 5 years. From leak investigation to proactive water proofing design they have proven to be flexible, collaborative and creative. They are able to offer services that are outside of the box for most design and consulting firms and handle them with exacting proficiency. Most recently we have partnered with them on a large scale waterproofing project that also incorporates new design elements of our one acre courtyard space. They have proven to be extremely knowledgeable in all areas of this project. Through the complexities of all the projects we have worked with them on, they have been committed to professionalism, timeline, and our project goals.
In my 12 years of Commercial Real Estate experience I have worked with many vendors who have over-promised an under-delivered, causing strained relationships and the need for constant monitoring. I can say that I’ve NEVER had that experience with Evolution Architecture. They are one of the few vendors that I know I can trust to see a job through from A to Z, keep it on budget, and ensure proper management of the project and sub-contractors. They are timely with their proposals and communication and I know that if and when an issue arises, they will tackle it head on and partner with me on a cost effective solution. I highly recommend Evolution Architecture for any building envelope consulting work!
Our projects demanded an intimate knowledge of curtain wall systems and proper regimen of solutions that will ensure excellent long term performance results. Evolution Architecture has been able to do what others have failed to do. I have been impressed with the team’s analytical approach, thoroughness, knowledge, timely response, communication and follow through.
Travis Brammer is widely respected and his professionalism is an example to all, especially early career real estate managers and contractors. Reliability, dependability and ethics matter. Travis always excels.
