Our team provided design services for the VA American Lake Building 18 renovation in support of the larger Building 81 Replacement project. The Building 81 Replacement project aimed to increase inpatient bed gap and further support a VA/DOD Joint Incentive Fund Proposal for a new Consolidated Cardio-Thoracic Program at Seattle. Infrastructure improvements around the American Lake site were completed, as part of this effort, to enhance the energy savings programs. The 19,181 square feet of renovations to Building 18 was identified as a necessary infrastructure improvement needed for the successful execution of the Building 81 project.
