Jeff Pelletier, AIA, CPHC®
Managing Principal | Founder
Jeff has known since he was two years old that he wanted to be an architect. He was one of those kids playing in a room filled with LEGO bricks who grew up to be an adult practicing architecture in a room filled with LEGO bricks. It is a profession he loves deeply.
After moving from New York City in 2001 following graduation from Cornell University’s architecture program, Jeff invested heavily in Seattle. He spent a decade working for area firms before founding Board & Vellum in early 2011. Tapping into his extensive experience in residential, retail, commercial, and multi-family projects large and small, Board & Vellum is focused on complicated and precisely-detailed projects utilizing clear communication, a collaborative design approach, and excellent project management. Jeff is your advocate the whole way through. In a very short time, Board & Vellum has gained local buzz and grown to a staff of around 30. Jeff has been honored with the “40 Under 40” award by Puget Sound Business Journal, been recognized as one of the Top 200 Influencers in the Construction Industry by Fixr, and one of the top two architects in Seattle by Build Direct. He is passionate about creating one of the best places to work not just in Seattle, but in the United States.
Jeff lives on Capitol Hill, a short walk from the office, with his husband, two dogs, and their two young sons. In his free time, he enjoys cooking, travel, hiking, skiing, volunteering with local non-profits, a good bourbon, and hunkering down in his LEGO room. He is a passionate resident of Capitol Hill and serves as the Chair of the Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce board.
