Our story began in 1994, when architect’s Kent Walker & Alan Poulson teamed up to open WPA Architecture in Provo, Utah. Ron Jones and Bruce Fallon, AIA joined the firm in 1999 and 2005, becoming principals in 2003 and 2008, respectively. As a small firm, our dedication to the craft of architecture allows us to work on a variety of projects ranging in size from $500,000 to over $25 million. We’ve been fortunate to work with some of the best clients, who have often become friends as well.
We love what we do. Architecture is not only a way of providing for our families, but it is an extension of our love for the built environment, and the process of developing a creative and practical solution to design challenges. We believe that the client is a key member of the design team, involved from beginning to end. Our approach is rooted in practicality in order to provide a functional layout that creates a design response to the Owner’s needs. This process leads to a three-dimensional response where we are as comfortable designing in a traditional design language as we are using a modern language – all as directed by our clients.
Collaborative design leadership begins with a firm principal giving personal direction to each and every project WPA Architecture works on. With most of our work located within the Intermountain West, architectural licenses in Utah, Arizona, and California, along with an NCARB Certificate Holder, allows us to work wherever a project is located. Many staff members have been with the firm for more than 15 years, providing confidence in our team. From design through construction, we understand how to deliver a successful project, and thrive when the entire team – Owner, Architect, Engineers, and Contractor – can celebrate a project we all feel has become our favorite project we’ve ever completed.
