Tacoma Public Utilities Admin Complex


The 120,000 SF three-story headquarters for TPU addressed several unique requirements.  Among them, included introducing an essential facility-level Emergency Operations Dispatch Center adjacent (and seismically isolated) to the office building.  Additionally, a two-story sky bridge that spans over the parking lot to the existing main building was designed to be erected as one element, which reduced the project schedule.  PCS introduced a central concrete core lateral system which complimented the continuous “through tube” Centria exterior cladding system.
