"In building Pacific Place we were under a tight schedule to open on time for Christmas.  The Fria Company led the team to a successful ending."

What Former and Current Clients are Saying...

“Perhaps most noteworthy was The Fria Company's involvement from beginning to end on a 327 unit, 14 story, $90 million concrete luxury apartment building ("The Olympus") on Seattle's waterfront...  


Mr. Fria's method of selecting the most appropriate contractors, and then creating a situation where the expectations of them were made very clear...The net result was a project that was built on time and in budget. 


...a true "win-win" situation had been created.  We will definitely look for the opportunity to work with The Fria Company again.”


Kerry Nicholson, SVP, Legacy Partners


“The Fria Company was instrumental in helping coordinate the design, permitting, VE, bidding and the construction process. They were instrumental in overcoming unanticipated cost and schedule issues by bringing all parties together in a positive, respectful, and pro-active way for a team based resolution. The Summit At First Hill was successful because the design intent had been maintained, it was completed on time and within budget, and most importantly the owner was happy."


Jerry McDevitt, Principal, MITHUN

"The Fria Company has been instrumental in supporting our pre-development process, including contractor selection and management, design development, and value engineering.  It has been a genuine pleasure working with The Fria Company and I would not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone seeking support and guidance throughout the development process."


Beau Woodring, Developer

"MKA worked with The Fria Company on The Summit at First Hill Retirement Center and Pacific Place Retail and Entertainment Center in Seattle. We were able to provide a design that met the client's requirements for program and cost because The Fria Company consistently provided clear and timely direction. Construction challenges were resolved seamlessly and without significant impact due to The Fria Company's diligence working with us to evaluate and implement creative solutions. We welcome the chance to work with them on any project."
