    Clallam County PUD - Central Warehouse and Water Operations Building


The PUD’s new Central Warehouse and Water Operations Building covers more than 70,000 SF of space including offices, meeting rooms, shop, storage and materials handling space. The immediate site includes a five-acre fenced and paved area which provides for the storage, lay-down and loading of materials, in addition to the nearly two acres of interior space. Site improvements were designed to respect the neighboring properties and Carlsborg business district while also making the best use of the site for the PUD’s current and future facility requirements. New landscaping and a welded steel fence around the perimeter of the new storage yard and building provide the PUD with security and screen the facility from the neighbors.
The project, located at 100 Hooker Road in Sequim, included the remodel of a building that formerly housed a Costco store into a PUD facility with more than 70,000 SF of indoor area on a 14 acre site. This first phase of development for the site consolidates the PUD’s purchasing, materials handling, warehouse and water department operations in one location closer to the center of the present and future customer base. In the future, the PUD plans to relocate its main administration offices to the vicinity of the new warehouse
The Driftmier Architects conducted an existing facility and site analysis on the former Costco warehouse building for the PUD prior to their purchase of the site. The consultant team and the PUD worked closely together to obtain a Conditional Use Permit, design the conversion and secure necessary building permits. Drury Construction was the general contractor for the conversion project.
