PSE Regional Operations Center

Redmond, WA

Buchanan worked with PSE from constructability through construction to bring PSE's regional operations center in line with current regulatory requirements. The center is the electrical power grid operations hub for the region, running at full operations 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Strict security clearance was required for all workers going inside the building. To maintain full operations every aspect of the work, from replacing windows to moving the emergency back-up generators, had to be carefully planned out, reviewed by the facilities managers, evaluated by the workers impacted, and supported by a back-out or escape plan incase of emergency.

Buchanan provided complete mechanical and electrical overhauls, replaced emergency back-up generators, installed seismic upgrades, and reconfigured spaces to accommodate new conference rooms, training rooms, and kitchens to multiple masonry buildings.
