Biography

Joe Collins’ unique ability to build rapport across multidisciplinary teams, and engage and collaborate with clients on complex projects are the cornerstones of his expertise on the firm’s most prestigious projects across typologies. Working out of Portland, he leads the firm’s Operations Group.

An acknowledged authority on laboratory planning and design, his projects at major universities, including The Johns Hopkins University, Oregon Health & Science University, Stanford University, and multiple University of California campuses, are models for a new generation of flexible, high-performance buildings that inspire innovation in research and teaching.

Leading teams in the design of large public-use facilities and cultural centers, such as the California Science Center and The Bishop Museum Science Adventure Center in Honolulu, Joe has successfully blended cutting-edge science and education with urban revitalization. In Salt Lake City, Joe led the design team for a 21,000 seat Conference Center, and the 20-acre City Creek Redevelopment which integrated principles of smart growth, urbanism and green building to revitalize two downtown blocks into a pedestrian-oriented, mixed-use center.

Passionate about sustainable design, Joe’s projects have received LEED Platinum, Gold, and Net Zero designations. The Central Energy Facility at Stanford University was one of the few projects in history to simultaneously receive both an AIA Institute Honor Award as well as a COTE Top Ten sustainability award.

Joe received a Bachelor of Environmental Design in Architecture from the School of Design at North Carolina State University.
