Tumwater Office Building

The Tumwater Office Building is a design-build, developer lead project. The building will achieve a LEED Silver rating, and will do so by implementing such "macro" site-related items as plug-ins for electric cars, water efficient landscaping (that requires no potable water for irrigation), reduced site disturbance, and the use of bio-filtration systems to deal with storm-water management on site.

In using brick as a primary material on the exterior façade two goals were met. The first was a strong integration into the context of Tumwater, where the City's Design Guidelines identifies brick as a preferred building material. There was a general agreement that the materials used should be timeless and enduring, and brick was a natural choice with that goal as well.
