King Street Station Historical Restoration Phase 2B

The project was completed in phases due to funding from various federal, state and city entities as well as to ensure continuous operations for Amtrak. The first phase included repairing the station’s four tower clocks and restoration of the roof that utilized new terra cotta tiles that replicated the original materials. 68 wells and ground-source heat pumps that heat and cool the station were installed in the second phase, along with the development of a new 13,500 square foot public plaza that engages the diverse neighborhood and creates a warm, inviting space. A beautifully renovated staircase bridges the gap from the plaza to the main entrance reconnecting Pioneer Square and the International District. For the final phase, our team structurally stabilized the load-bearing, unreinforced masonry building by inserting steel plates throughout.
