Perkins + Will Office

1221 Second Avenue, Seattle, WA
CLIENT: Perkins + Will
PROJECT COST: $1.2 million

The 13,000 square foot tenant improvement for Perkins + Will is located on the second floor of the Galland Building in downtown Seattle. Perkins + Will’s Seattle practice was growing and expanding rapidly and created a need for new office space. Because the firm is known internationally as a leading sustainable architect, the client wanted the Seattle office to be a showcase of their sustainable abilities and a representation of workplace culture.

This project, the first LEED-CI Platinum project in the Northwest, included disconnection from the building HVAC system, replacement of the perimeter windows on the second floor with operable windows for natural ventilation, lighting controlled by daylight sensors, installation of perimeter baseboard heaters, installation of exterior shades on the west facing façade to reduce solar heat gain in the summer months, and replacement of all existing plumbing features with dual-flush toilets, waterless urinals, low-flow showers and auto-controlled faucets.

The project team met project LEED goals by reducing water use by 40%, reducing lighting power needs by 46%, and providing daylighting in 90% of the space. Construction met the required minimum average of 10% recycled content in materials, plus 10% of the construction materials were harvested locally and 78% of the construction materials were manufactured locally.

The project was completed while Jackie Costigan was at Turner Construction, under Jackie’s leadership.
Role on project: General Contractor/Construction Manager.
