Our Story

Stephanie Thatcher

Stephanie Thatcher - President

When ORCAS was founded in Seattle, the guiding vision was to assemble an agile team of innovative thinkers and doers to provide solutions in delivering complex construction projects. From the outset, we were dedicated to creativity, collaboration and a genuine drive to solve our customer's challenges and optimize project outcomes.

This led to delivering projects across a variety of industries, expanding our experience and knowledge. Our team has implemented project controls solutions for complex and fast-track construction projects across the United States and abroad. I am proud to work with the best-in-class companies within each of the industries we support - Life Sciences, Microelectronics, Health Care, Data Centers, Government Laboratories, Airports, Oil & Gas, and Mining.

I am dedicated to improving the overall profession of project controls through creating white papers, writing for industry standard guidelines in project controls, conducting lessons learned workshops, training in project controls, creating processes and procedures for project controls, writing technical articles, and delivering technical papers and presentations to AACE (Association for the Advancement of Cost Engineering), PMI (Project Management Institute), ISPE (International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering), and SEMI (Semiconductor Equipment and Materials International).

My team comes first! We have a variety of industry backgrounds and technical expertise, but we all share our commitment to the project controls profession, success of our projects, and growth of ORCAS. We are there for each other, brainstorming the challenges and celebrating the wins. I am there for my team, to help navigate issues, to advocate for them, or to simply listen.

Today ORCAS is proud to offer expertise so companies can successfully manage and complete complex tasks and deliver successful projects. ORCAS unites expert knowledge with people, processes, and technology to deliver results. ORCAS helps our clients achieve critical goals, minimize risk, and add significant value. ORCAS is passionate about our clients' success at all levels. No other company in the project controls field has this level of expertise, insight, and intense focus.

Our Vision Statement

Our Mission Statement
