Donald Tuttle Joins Seattle Office of Design-Build Firm UEB

UEB Continues Expansion into Pacific Northwest

SEATTLE – UEB Builders Inc., a design-build and general contractor firm, is pleased to announce the addition of Donald Tuttle as a development principal to its growing office in Seattle.

UEB opened its Pacific Northwest operations on the western shore of Lake Union in 2016. Since then, it has completed the LEED Platinum multifamily development Oliver Station in Portland. Recent Seattle wins include the M, a 24-story glass tower in the U-district, and Brooklyn Station a $250 million multi-tower project also in the U District. Additional projects are in preconstruction planning and design.

Tuttle has worked in business development with a number of built environment design and construction firms for more than 20 years in the Pacific Northwest. Most recently, he was the principal-in-charge of business development at DCI Engineers. Tuttle helped grow DCI’s presence from five offices to 14, establishing the company as a major structural design firm for the West Coast.

“UEB’s founding members, Tom Keilty and Mike Hurst, have been working contacts of mine for a few years,” said Tuttle. “They like to have fun and are hard-working, efficient builders who exemplify positive energy and value relationships over all else. That really appealed to me. I’m returning to my roots in development and construction, so I’m eager to help UEB grow into its potential over the next several years.”

UEB is known for design-conscious and cost-effective construction solutions provided in a seamlessly integrated team process. Tuttle’s appointment comes at a time when UEB is making a major push into the northwest. While the Seattle office currently employs 10 people, UEB is looking to double that number by next summer.

Founded in 2005 by Tom Keilty and Mike Hurst, UEB has grown from a two-person company to one with 150 employees. From offices in Phoenix, Dallas and Seattle, UEB serves a multi-state market specializing in urban and rural healthcare projects as well as multi-family, office, hospitality and general commercial.

“To this role, Don brings valuable knowledge about the commercial real estate industry in the Pacific Northwest,” said UEB Co-Founder and Principal Tom Keilty. “With his guidance, UEB will continue to build meaningful and community-driven projects as well as relationships for decades to come.”
