Phillips Rejoins HNTB in Seattle as Aviation Project Director

BELLEVUE, WA — Gordon Phillips, AIA, LEED AP, rejoins HNTB Corporation’s architecture practice as Aviation Project Director. Based in the firm’s Bellevue office, Phillips delivers design projects for major aviation clients, including Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

Phillips is an Architect and an Engineer with more than three decades of experience in planning, design, and implementation of aviation facilities in the U.S., Europe, and Asia. His recent work has focused on planning, design, and construction administration of airport terminals in both a technical capacity and a managerial role.

“Gordon is a needle-mover for HNTB’s aviation architecture team,” said Chris Migneron, AIA, NCARB, HNTB Architecture National Practice Leader and Senior Vice President. “In this significant leadership position, he offers clients the insight and expertise to navigate their most challenging design projects. We’re excited to have his experience and leadership back at HNTB where the architecture practice continues to expand in Seattle and across the country.”

Prior to rejoining HNTB, Phillips was Design Manager for another consulting firm where he worked closely with the staff at Sea-Tac on large infrastructure improvements. He previously worked for HNTB as Project Director from 2009 to 2013. During that time, he gained experience leading some of the nation’s largest and most complex aviation projects, including acting as the Project Manager on the Terminal 2 West “Green Build” expansion at San Diego International Airport.

“Bringing my design and sustainability expertise to clients’ most challenging projects is a passion for me,” Phillips said. “I am excited to be back at HNTB and look forward to providing innovative design solutions for major terminal projects.”
