Project: Qwest Tenant Improvements
Tukwila, WA - 88,000 SF
KBD Group provided services for tenant improvements at this Telecommunications Switch Center for Qwest Communications located in an 88,000 SF building. New electrical service was implemented during construction in a "live" state for both Phase I and II.
Phase I utilized General Contracting services and included build-out of 11,000 SF of the switch center area and 5,000 SF of offices and conference rooms. Work included the use of typical trades in clean room type conditions using two to three shifts. KBD Group kept the building dust free and climate controlled throughout the work.
Phase II utilized Design-Build services for tenant improvements to the 45,000 SF data center. Equipment and power requirements for the space were extensive, including a heavy load of batteries in the UPS room and power provided to an internal unit substation. The facility was built with high-level security measures."
