UW Engineering Research Center

The University of Washington's Engineering Research Center at Russell Hall was designed by ZGF Architects to be the face of the program. They use this space to promote new ideas and synergistic relationships with both the public and private sectors.

Gateway Construction Services was chosen for this project for two reasons. We had the most experience working in the building and more importantly were able to come up with an aggressive schedule that gave ERC the conference areas early. This was critical for a presentation to a committee funding a large grant.

The excising space was roughly 5,400 Sqft and in shell condition. The tenant improvements included radius walls and circular ceiling treatments. They defined the different spaces with large barn door partitions allowing for smaller meetings as well as larger. The lighting package and finishes are state of the art. Including casework screens and panels milled to look like circuit boards, all coming together to create a statement of cutting edge ingenuity.
