Boeing 3-800 Cafe Refresh

This project consisted of renovations to more than 10,000 SF of space in Bldg. 3-800 Cafeteria at Boeing Field in Seattle. Scope of work involved demolition of the existing cafeteria and adjacent spaces and construction of a new larger Cafe that included a full commercial kitchen, multiple food station cafeteria, soft seating area, all new mechanical, fire sprinkler, and electrical systems, and over $1M of new kitchen equipment. The Cafe and seating areas were finished with high-end finishes including wood ceilings, stone countertops, and seeded aggregate concrete floors.

WA Patriot coordinated the work to accommodate our client’s occupancy requirements during construction, and coordinated the schedule to minimize impacts and facilitate their ongoing operations.

Alma Mater Tacoma

The Alma Mater project involved a 22,000 square foot renovation of the former Carpenter’s Union Hall located in downtown Tacoma.

WA Patriot got involved early with the Alma Mater team and their designers to provide preconstruction services and assist with design completion. Through partnering and commitment to the owner’s vision, we were able to provide a unique facility that serves artists in this revitalized community.
