Kirkland Urban is a much-anticipated new mixed-use office, retail, and residential center located in the heart of Kirkland, WA. The project is a redevelopment of the City’s Parkplace shopping center and is set to begin the first phase of occupancy this fall.
McKinstry provided core and shell electrical and low voltage systems for the complex’s Building E (7-story, office/retail) and Building F (8 story, office/retail). Services included power, lighting, fire alarm, security, distributed antenna systems (DAS), public safety radio, wireless, and systems commissioning. Proper steps were taken and documented to ensure the building owner could obtain their LEED Gold status using LEED v3 certification.
For these projects, good working relationships had to be established with multiple contractor teams, including those for other structures on the 12-acre complex. Running power supply from the garage to and throughout Buildings E &F while providing differing ampage given residential, retail, or commercial space, took working with multiple contractor teams, the local utility company, and contracted tenants.
