08 Jan TETER Architects
Though new to San Luis Obispo, TETER Architects and Engineers (TETER) has a long history of listening to clients and fulfilling their facility needs. Providing quality design service and finding creative solutions to client’s challenging problems helped TETER grow from a one-man shop to 100 employees. TETER first opened its doors in 1979 in Visalia, CA and has since expanded to Fresno, Bakersfield, Modesto, and most recently San Luis Obispo in June of 2017. TETER works in both the public and private sector. However, the majority of their work is servicing K12 and Higher Education clients. TETER completed notable projects such as CSU Fresno’s new aquatic center and new science building, as well as designing McFarland Unifed School District’s new central kitchen. “Being involved [and] feeling like you’re connected with the community was a really big part of the reason why we chose Downtown,” said Isela Barcenas, a TETER Project Manager at the San Luis Obispo Office. Currently, the San Luis Obispo TETER office employs four Cal Poly grads with plans of adding a new team member soon. Though their San Luis Obispo office is small, TETER employs 100 individuals amongst their five offices and employees are encouraged to travel between the various offices. Employees at TETER’s newest office on Marsh Street are actively looking for local projects in order to become involved in the SLO community. “We want this office to grow,” said Robert Thornton, Partner at TETER’s San Luis Obispo office. “We really like people to be connected to the office and to the community.” Welcome to Downtown, TETER!
