Jean-Claude Letourneau



Jean-Claude, “JC,” is an architect who leads multi-disciplinary teams on complex public facilities with high performance goals. The high level of craft in his projects is the result a rigorous process – understanding the interwoven relationship between planning, design and construction facilitates both a strategic approach and coherent vocabulary of design and detailing. He recently led design of the City of Seattle’s first net-zero-energy-ready building at the Cedar Falls Townsite within the Cedar River Watershed. JC contributed to the state’s Capital Projects Advisory Review Board (CPARB) committee on life cycle cost analysis, helping write guidelines for the planning, design and implementation of high performance, state-funded buildings.
