Our Top Commercial Construction Projects
At Mountain Construction, we take pride in all of our work. The commercial projects below are just a few that we’re especially proud of.
Ritchie Brothers Auction Facility
With Ritchie Brothers continued growth, its Olympia facility was not up to the technological standards and area requirements for their Northwest US operations. The new Chehalis site includes 140 acres of developed land capable of handling all of their auction inventory on one continuous piece of property.
The new 37,500 sf auction building contains live auction seating, a “virtual” auction area, a platinum customer lounge, sales, and administrative offices. Also on the site are a check-in building and a state-of-the-art facility for equipment refurbishment and painting.
38th Street Starbucks
Mountain created a beautiful show piece corner building for this neighborhood Starbucks. The work entailed full site development as well as shell and core construction. Exterior features include alternating masonry block colors, metal siding accent, cement board upper siding with reveals and a metal roof. The interior has an open concept, with vaulted ceilings, exposed concrete floors and decorative finishes. The site was finished with professional landscaping and cast-in-place concrete curbing for high durability.
Located on the hillside north of Gig Harbor’s waterfront, this small, Northwest-inspired office complex houses the owner’s financial management and signature coffee distribution companies. The project is designed in a residential scale, incorporating small footprints, gable form roofs, and a combination of wood and stone veneer materials.
Three buildings make up the complex and are organized on the site to maximize views of the harbor and Mount Rainier. Two buildings house offices, the third a fitness center and parking. On-axis with Mount Rainier, a pedestrian path divides the two office buildings and leads to an outdoor fire pit and covered gathering area.
Interior finishes were selected based on a Northwest color palette. The earth tones of slate, wood, and other interior finishes offer a warm and inviting space.
Pierce Transit Office and Training Center
Mountain Construction delivered this Pierce Transit major facility significantly under the $5-6 million budget for the project despite extraordinary inflation in building materials during the selection and design period and increased owner requirements for the building.
Design-builder selection began with a public call for qualifications followed by a design-build competition among five teams. Proposed designs, specifications, and prices were evaluated for the best value in meeting owner requirements. Mountain Construction’s proposal blended efficiency with high-quality and durability to minimize life-cycle costs. Afterward, Mountain personnel and our hand-picked team of architects, engineers, subcontractors, and suppliers worked with the owner to refine the design and incorporate additional requirements.
The first-floor features three training rooms with complete audio/visual facilities which may be combined into one large room with movable partition wall systems. The second floor provides offices to meet the current needs of various departments and space for future requirements.
