Design-Build Restaurant Renovation

This Café/Restaurant Renovation project was the first design-build project completed by the Valdez WA Patriot Joint Venture.

The project consisted of designing and constructing renovations to the interior spaces of an existing restaurant galley and dining area. Renovations included selective demolition, asbestos abatement, upgrading interior finishes, redesigning the existing dining and kitchen areas, and installation of Government-furnished equipment. Scope of work also included the addition of a cashier/barista desk, food stations, soup & salad bar, espresso station, and a drink & dessert station.

Design-Build Administrative, Maintenance, & Shop Facility

This design-build project involved the relocation and consolidation of maintenance, shop and administrative facilities from Bremerton to Silverdale. The scope of work includes construction of a new facility to house the three relocated facility operations. Construction utilizes concrete tilt-up, structural steel, and metal roofing.

This project is an Associated General Contractors of WA (AGC) 2016 “Build Washington” award winner for Construction Excellence.

Install Ground Source Heat Pumps and Renovate Dormitories

WA Patriot installed ground source heat pumps to support heating in one Dormitory building, and support both heating and cooling in a second Dormitory building in Bremerton, WA. Steam-to-hot water converters were replaced with water-to-water heat pumps supplying lower temperature hot water via a ground source water loop in vertical wells.

Project also repaired and replaced aged, damaged and deteriorated facility components, added improvements to bring the facility up to current national life safety, accessibility, building code and barracks standards; and increased its useful life as a quality Dormitory facility.

Design-Build Vehicle Barrier System

This design-build project consisted of design, fabrication, and installation of two miles of modified Normandy barriers. The barrier system provides a continuous passive barrier system to prevent or delay threat vehicles. Major work elements consisted of placement of concrete foundations, fabrication of significant structural steel members, and a substantial volume of field welding.

This project is an Associated General Contractors of WA (AGC) 2014 “Build Washington” award winner for Construction Excellence.

Install Elevator, Remodel Legal Services Offices


WA Patriot installed an elevator and remodeled approximately 15,000 sf of office space to enhance security for Legal Service Offices in Bremerton, WA. The building is a multi-tenant facility, and the security enhancements help to separate access to the legal services spaces from access to adjacent areas.

Design-Build Street Repaving Project

Farragut Ave

The scope of this project included the demolition and replacement of approximately 90,000 square feet of existing asphalt and concrete surfaces. Driving lanes were extended out 12’’ past the fog lines and existing curb and gutter, and existing utility trenches remained in place in which 24’’ isolation joints were placed around all trench lids. Traffic control and coordination with all parties was crucial in the successful outcome of this project.

Repair Sports Fields

Navy Sports Field

This was a design-build project that consisted of replacing the existing grass covered sports fields with synthetic turf for both the multipurpose (soccer / football) and softball fields, and a synthetic shock absorbing, rubberized surface for the existing jogging and running trail.

Install Arresting Gears

WA Patriot installed retractable hook support systems to replace the existing above ground arrest gear cables in use at a fully operational air field. The arrest gear cables are used for emergency landing arrest. The work included demolition of 15’ x 200’ of steel plates & concrete at the site of the existing arresting gear cable for install of the new arresting gear system. The runways were shut down to air traffic during construction but adjacent runways were operational.

Hospital Boiler Replacement


Work included demolishing 3 steam boilers, associated piping and the 8-story chimney flue, and installing two steam boilers, 4 condensing boilers, a new chimney flue, and associated equipment to upgrade the heating system of a Bremerton hospital. The removed boilers were replaced with two new 200 HP steam boilers as well as 4 condensate steam boilers. All work, other than the 7-story stack removal, was located within the boiler mechanical room. No external equipment throughout the hospital was replaced or modified.

Repair Railroad Bridges, Various Locations

RR Bridges

This design-build project consisted of repairing four railroad bridges in the Bremerton and Shelton areas. Two bridges are in Shelton, WA and are mainly steel super structures. The steel bridges’ scope of work involved abrasive blasting to eliminate the existing lead paint coat and applying a new three paint coat system to all steel. Two bridges involved repairing the timber portion of the bridge support. This included posting piles, replacing pile caps, stringers; sway braces, and railroad ties. Headwall and wing wall timbers were also replaced to repair the bridge approaches. Three bridges (0.15, 6.6, and 36.35) also included ballast replacement and rail alignments
