BLUELINE EXPANDS ITS GEOGRAPHIC REACH BY ADDING A THIRD OFFICE LOCATION

MILL CREEK, WA – December 17, 2018 – Blueline, a civil engineering, land use planning, and landscape architecture firm headquartered in downtown Kirkland, WA, announces the opening of its newest location in Mill Creek. The addition of a third office location allows Blueline to continue its aggressive growth trajectory, better serve Snohomish County clients, and improve the work-life balance of Mill Creek office employees with significant reductions in their commute times.

In addition to large windows that let in plenty of natural light, the open floor plan encourages collaboration and communication, and offers flexibility for the future. Blueline employees that have relocated to the Mill Creek office love their shorter commutes, walkable amenities like restaurants, gyms, and shopping; and feel like the transition was seamless.

“Our family moved to Mill Creek in 2006 because of the strong sense of community, great walkable local amenities, and excellent schools,” said Deanna Martin, PE, Senior Project Manager. “I’m thrilled Blueline selected Mill Creek as the ideal spot for our north end office to better serve Snohomish County.”
