Alaska USA Financial Center, Anchorage 2004-05
This six story 100,000 square foot office building is our largest to date, in terms of contract value, square footage, and number of stories. This is the home of Alaska USA Insurance Brokers, Alaska USA Trust Department and Alaska USA Commercial Financial Services. The building features a full-service cafeteria and Otis Gen-2 elevators.
We were asked to participate as team members from the concept phase, throughout the design- and cost-development stages and construction phase. The team consisted of DOWL Engineers, Cole & Thompson Architects, Franklin & Associates, Otis Elevator Company, Norcoast Mechanical, H&K Sheet Metal Fabricators, Clemens Electrical and EIC Engineers.
We broke ground in the summer of 2004 and worked throughout the winter to deliver the project in the summer of 2005. The complex structure included concrete elevator shafts and stair towers that were 96 vertical feet from the basement to the roof.
