FSi’s Inland Northwest (INW) office in Spokane was established in 2017 when Senior Associate Brandon Crane moved home from Seattle to raise his family in the place where he grew up and met his wife. Since then, the office has grown to a staff of six engineers, including principal Rick Himmel, who moved from Cle Elum to the Spokane area in 2022. We serve public agencies, private businesses, and regional architectural, engineering, and contracting firms.

FSi Spokane's Projects

Our recent work includes renovations on the second floor of downtown Spokane’s M Building, smoke control systems consulting at Spokane’s Old City Hall, boiler replacements for Providence at the Sacred Heart Complex, and controls upgrades for Leavitt Realty at the Central Business Park complex in Spokane Valley. Other clients include the Spokane Airport Board, Walla Walla Public Libraries, Washington Beef, and Montgomery Realty.

One of our flagship projects is the Richland School District’s Teaching, Learning, and Administration Center (TLAC). The $10 million project consolidated district functions and replaced the 70-year-old administration building that was a repurposed grocery store. FSi was the mechanical engineer for the project, providing HVAC, plumbing, and fire protection design. The facility opened in 2020 and is serving the district’s needs with beauty and efficiency.
