Constructed and installed facilities for Current Limiting Reactors (CLR) adjacent to existing site. The work included clearing, erosion control, grading, drainage installation, a detention pond retrofit, concrete foundations, perimeter fiberglass fencing, electrical conduit, cable trench, ground grid, removal of old cable, road installation and yard rock. Subcontracted work included hydroseeding, auger cast pilings, fencing and electrical installation. The project was one of many we have completed in this area of Renton, WA.
Constructed a 4,500 sq. ft. shop to support Puget Sound Energy’s Baker River Hydroelectric Project in Concrete, Washington. The 23’ tall pre-engineered steel structure houses shop, office, locker, and lunch room uses. Special features include custom siding, heated floor and exterior concrete slabs, a 1,500 sq. ft. storage mezzanine and 4-ton single girder crane. We self-performed the civil, concrete, steel erection and carpentry work.
An extensive addition and remodel project to the existing building upgraded classroom, office, and meeting spaces. The existing gym, which houses sport and other Tribal functions, was upgraded to improve acoustics, natural lighting and fire protection. As always we self-performed the civil, concrete and carpentry work.
Our history with the Community also includes several projects on the Tribal Center. The most recent involved extensive repairs after a major roof failure. Demolition and drying work grew into a complete remodel and code upgrade that respected the history and significance of the building. We’ve been fortunate to work on these projects with the excellent community facilities teams along with architectural and trade experts.
Civil and concrete subcontractor to RES America Construction to support construction of an innovative battery storage facility adjacent to a live substation in Glacier, WA. Set within the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, the system will provide up to 18 hours of backup power to Glacier during outages as well as addressing system peaking and flexibility. Rain and snow were challenges to overcome.
Constructed a new 3.5 acre 230kV substation connected to the existing 115kV station. The work included clearing & grubbing, importing and placing over 30,000 yards of structural fill and yard surfacing, storm drainage, improving the existing detention pond, concrete foundations, perimeter chain link fencing, and electrical conduit, cable trench and ground grid. Temporary, grounded fencing was installed through the existing substation for safe truck access. Subcontracted work included hydroseeding, auger cast pilings, fencing and electrical installation. This was our third project at the Alderton site.
Constructed a new 1,634 sq. ft. single-story wood frame structure to house the Ferndale School District’s central server room along with meeting and office space. The infrastructure includes redundant cooling, a propane back-up generator and UPS system to maintain the District’s communications and network services during emergencies.
Creative architecture and a combination of diverse exterior finishes blend the new 21,000 sq. ft. modern wood-framed building with historic Pioneer Park. The facility houses all club functions including lunch and game rooms, kitchen, teen center, arts, crafts, tutoring, offices and a full gym. Challenges included pre-loading the site and raising the finish floor above the flood plain of the Nooksack River. We self-performed the civil, concrete, and carpentry work. Faux log siding and beams are unique features.
Point Roberts was an existing 25kV to 12.5kV substation fed from BC Hydro’s distribution system. We served as civil and concrete subcontractor to Potelco, Inc. to rebuild the station as a double bank station with an open air feeder structure just south of the existing site. The work included demolition, grading, imported fill, concrete foundations, chain link fencing, landscaping and yard surfacing. We self-performed all work except fencing and landscaping.
Point Roberts is part of Washington State but not physically connected to the mainland U.S. Driving there requires border crossings through British Columbia, Canada – complicating travel and material deliveries. A challenge arose when a container filled with common landscaping plants was turned back at the border. The creative solution was to barge the materials across Boundary Bay from Anacortes, WA.
Expanded an existing substation in Sedro Woolley, WA. Work included rough & finish grading, storm drainage, concrete foundations, SPCC containment, yard & top course gravel, electrical conduit, cable trench and ground grid. Hydro-seeding, auger cast piling, and the conduit & ground grid installation were subcontracted. This is one of several projects we have completed within this substation.
Civil and concrete contractor for Puget Sound Energy’s new 115kV substation in Olympia, WA. The scope included clearing and grading an 8 acre site, importing base course fill and yard rock surfacing, an extensive storm drain system and detention pond, placing foundations totaling 660 yards of concrete, perimeter security fencing, and the underground electrical conduits, cable trench and ground grid. Cutting and filling to balance the site with over 19,000 yards of moisture-sensitive glacial till during an extremely dry summer and wet fall was a challenge. We self-performed all work except landscaping, fencing and electrical installation.
