The Pioneer building renovation project
The Pioneer Building, originally built in 1889, was a multi-phase office tenant improvement project in Seattle’s oldest building. Each floor of the occupied 6 story building was broken up into quadrants. As a quadrant became vacant, tenant improvements construction projects were completed to create private offices and co-working space in each area.
At any time, there were projects under various stages of construction, across multiple floors, which required meticulous coordination between trades working in the building.
Working with the original Pioneer Square historic preservation requirements while creating new spaces was critical to the project.
MRJ's superintendents worked closely with building management to coordinate when noisy work took place, and an emphasis was placed on keeping occupied and common areas as clean as possible for the building tenants. Additionally, an amenity space was constructed on the main floor to support tenants using the new spaces as they opened.
