J-U-B ENGINEERS, Inc. Announces Expansion Plans in Post Falls with New Office Building

J-U-B ENGINEERS, Inc., a member of the North Idaho business community since 1974, is excited to announce its expansion plans with the development of a new office building. Over the past 50 years, J-U-B has been dedicated to serving the community, and this expansion marks a significant milestone in its commitment to growth and innovation.

The decision to pursue this expansion was made in response to the company’s remarkable growth, which has seen its local staff increase to 61 professionals. J-U-B has outgrown its current office space, prompting the need for a larger and more modern facility to accommodate its expanding team and better serve its clients.

After a two-year search for our next home, in April 2023, J-U-B’s Executive Committee (EC) recommended the purchase of 2.33 acres in Post Falls for the future home of the Coeur d’Alene staff. The land acquisition was completed in August 2023. J-U-B quickly engaged Bernardo Wills design team to assist in the development of architectural plans for the new office. The design process began with a visioning meeting involving the EC, Karin Shannon (Facilities Manager), and Jay Hassell (Area Manager).

Since initiating the design process, numerous iterations of the building and site design have been explored to ensure that the new office will meet the evolving needs of the company and its employees. In late February, the design team produced the Design Development documents, marking a significant milestone in the project’s progress.

J-U-B partnered with Baker Construction and Development to serve as the construction manager during the design and construction phase of the project. Baker’s expertise will be instrumental to ensure the project stays within budget and meets the highest standards of quality.

The proposed building, located at 1964 N. Nicholson Center St., Post Falls Idaho, will sit on the new lot. The initial building size is slated to be 18,850 sq. ft., with a capacity to accommodate 83 staff members. However, with future expansion plans in mind, the building and site have been designed to support a future capacity of 21,450 sq. ft. and 103 staff members, respectively.

“We are excited to embark on this expansion,” said Cory Baune, Executive Vice-President at J-U-B and Coeur d’Alene local. “This new office building represents our commitment to our clients, our employees, and the North Idaho & Eastern Washington community. We look forward to continuing to grow and serve with excellence.”

J-U-B ENGINEERS, Inc. anticipates breaking ground on the new office building in the coming months, with completion expected in June 2025. Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting development.
