Western Washington University Alma Clark Glass Residence Hall

The first Design-Build project for WWU utilized CLT in structural and architectural features throughout the 400-bed student housing facility. This residence hall provides a variety of spaces including bedroom suites, shared common areas, laundry facility, community kitchens, and study spaces. In addition, the building houses support areas including office space for staff, storage (furniture, supplies, and equipment), bike storage, and custodial area.

Nisqually Generations Healing Center

The Nisqually Generations Healing Center is a new two-story, 21,750-square-foot medication-assisted treatment facility that will serve the Nisqually Tribe and community members in need of treatment for opioid dependency throughout the greater Olympia/Lacey area. In addition to dosing treatment, the facility will provide outpatient primary care, dental care, and behavioral health services. Site amenities include surface parking, a stormwater management system, and landscaping. A major design goal of this project was to incorporate the Nisqually Tribe culture and spirit in the building and landscape design. Building features express the elements of nature that balance the Nisqually brand within urban surroundings.

Hunts Middle School

The new Hunt Middle School is a Progressive Design-Build project that accommodates 600 students in a 90,506 SF building. Tacoma Public Schools desired local and MWBE participation in the design process, and BCRA’s team exceeded expectations with over 93% local businesses and MWBE partners, including Studio 41, Ato Apiafi Architects PLLC, and The Greenbusch Group. The PDB team’s approach created the opportunity to develop unique, project-specific solutions to provide mitigated contaminated soils, innovative stormwater management, a phased approach to construction and permitting, and increased early trade partner coordination.   These efforts ensured the full program, plus enhancements, could be delivered under budget and on time even amid a global supply chain shortage. This project integrated a high level of district and community input, including middle schoolers who helped the school become a holistic community asset.  

“It’s amazing. It’s a delight to come to work every day.” – Tacoma Public Schools Employee  

“I think this building is immaculate; it’s so awesome. I have an eighth grader here, and she was part of the first class that started at the new building… The openness, the way the building’s designed—there’s a lot of natural light. [With] the views of the mountains [as well], I think we’re pretty thrilled with this place.” – Current Eighth-Grade Hunt Middle School Parent

Helen Sommers Building

The Helen Sommers Building was the first design-build project on the Washington State capitol campus. This 215,000-square-foot five-story office building met the State’s schedule and budget goals, and surpassed the energy performance and environmental targets. The first key challenge to the schedule was the project funding. After Sellen-ZGF were awarded the project in June 2014, it was determined that construction funding required additional Legislative action. While unable to bring subcontractors under full contract during this time, it did not stop us from getting valuable subcontractor input during design. We were able to bring subcontractors on board for preconstruction/design-assist services and then award them the construction contract after funding was secured. Due to the design-build delivery, the seven-month funding delay coupled with weather delays, unknown existing conditions and added project scope, the project was only delayed two weeks and the State employees were able to move in on schedule.

SPSCC Dr. Angela Bowen Center for Health Education

This 18,000-square-foot project transformed three floors of an existing office building into education spaces for the next generation of healthcare professionals at South Puget Sound Community College (SPSCC). The goal of this project was to create inclusive student-centered learning spaces that reflected real-world environments. To meet this goal, our teams incorporated broad user groups as key collaborators in an effort to design and build space specifically to meet their needs. The finished space provides students and faculty with a purpose-driven facility that supports emerging pedagogy and incorporates the flexibility needed for the long-term success of the programs hosted within. The team achieved substantial completion on an extremely fast-tracked schedule, just 12 months after the project was awarded, providing SPSCC with additional time to move into the space and prepare for classes. This schedule could only have been achieved through effective design-build delivery.

Block 216 (Ritz-Carlton), Portland, Oregon

Standing at 460 ft tall, Block 216 is a milestone 35-story tower boasting 158,000 sf of office space and includes the Pacific Northwest’s first Ritz Carlton with 138 Ritz Carlton branded residences and 11 stories of five-star hotel space. Amenities span 4 floors and feature a Ritz Carlton restaurant on the 20th floor along with a pool and jacuzzi on the 19th floor. The building is now tied with Park Avenue West as Portland’s fourth tallest building.

This is the largest construction project since the US Bank tower in 1983 and sits on what was once an undeveloped block of downtown Portland.

The design itself features a variety of condenser water-based mechanical systems such as water-source VRF, water-to-water heat pumps, DOAS units, vertical self-contained units, water-source heat pumps, and energy recovery ventilators.

The tower also incorporates an eco-friendly design including eco-roofs from Level 8 down to Level 3 with planters and stormwater management systems. These eco-roofs visually tie the building to O’Bryant Square Park and are positioned on the western half of the block allowing a reduced shadow cast on the Square.

This Design/build project is expected to be completed in April 2023.

University of Washington Parrington Hall

Located at University of Washington’s Seattle campus, the 1902 historic Parrington Hall has seen multiple renovations throughout the years. A key challenge to this project was avoiding the City of Seattle’s substantial alteration requirements. Through the Progressive Design-Build process, the team collaborated with all stakeholders and found solutions to avoid pushing the project into a substantial alteration. Navigating this threshold was critical, since required substantial alteration upgrades would have exhausted budget resources without allowing for required program upgrades. Progressive Design-Build delivery provided the flexibility to complete this $19 million renovation.

University of Washington Hans Rosling Center for Population Health

The Hans Rosling Center for Population Health is at the heart of the University of Washington’s 25-year vision to improve population health on a local and global scale. The Design-Build team’s mission was to create a high-quality, high-performance facility for interdisciplinary collaboration and innovation, in a short amount of time, on a fixed grant budget. The team came on board for site selection and quickly completed programming, design, permitting and construction of the 300,000 SF facility in only three years, while coming in under the grant budget by 2.5%. Surplus contingency was released back into the project budget and $4.5 million was saved throughout the project. This likely could not have been achieved with any other delivery method other than Progressive Design-Build.
