By | Architecture, Construction, News | No Comments

#ThrowbackThursday Completed in November of 2015, the Maintenance Shop and Crew Facility in Davenport, Washington provided their Utility Department new areas for welding, general mechanical work, a lube pit, paint booth, and wash bay. It also included crew locker rooms, break rooms, offices, and storage. The bays incorporated overhead cranes and overhead lubrication, water, and air systems, as well as exhaust ventilation systems. Operations and maintenance facilities require especially detailed consultant coordination on the part of the architect to ensure all of the moving parts (literally and figuratively) come together.

#ThrowbackThursday McEuen Park in Coeur d’Alene, ID

By | Architecture, Landscape Design, News | No Comments

#ThrowbackThursday to one of Bernardo Wills Architect’s favorite landscape architecture achievements – the McEuen Park Redevelopment for the City of Coeur d’Alene. The team’s primary objective included creating a destination park and gathering space for the public while incorporating amenities and features to compliment the venue’s spectacular waterfront setting on Lake Coeur d’Alene. What’s that they say about location, location, location? This park has that and more – Centennial Trail access, an interactive playground and splash pad, public art spaces, a dog park, sports courts, an amphitheater, and more! In 2015, the McEuen Park Redevelopment won a Merit Award from the American Society of Landscape Architects Idaho & Montana Chapter. As our weather continues to improve, put McEuen on your list for evening or weekend strolls, and enjoy!

#ThrowbackThursday Completed in 2015, the goal of the Spokane Central Service Center (also known as the Nelson Service Center) was to consolidate the City of Spokane’s fleet services, including solid waste collection and fleet maintenance, into one campus. The main facility is 44,000 square-feet and includes 17 large heavy vehicle maintenance bays, 8 light vehicle maintenance bays, bridge cranes, a welding area, a POL system, and a CNG fueling station area. In addition to the service facility, the center also features 13,600 square-feet of administration space and offices and enough parking for the entire service vehicle fleet. Within the facility, there is a gathering space for over 100 drivers to use daily. The drivers use this gathering space to meet for conferences, trainings, and daily dispatch. Bernardo Wills Architects provided programming and space planning, architectural, interior design, and landscape architecture services for this project. The Nelson Service Center won a DBIA National Merit Award for “Excellence in Process” in 2016 and continues to be one of our favorites.

At the West of Jefferson mixed-use project in Kendall Yards, crews have installed structural reinforcing to what will be the post-tensioned concrete podium, which separates the main floor retail portion of the building from the apartment portion above. The slab will be poured this Friday. This podium is necessary to meet the required fire separation between the retail occupancy and apartment floor occupancy. Bravo to Baker Construction’s teams on this project.
