Mixed-Use Retail Project Finalizes Framing in Kirkland, Washington

Construction is gaining momentum at the Village at Totem Lake, a mixed-use, design-build project in Kirkland, Washington. JAMA is providing structural engineering for this effort, which is expected to be have Phase I complete later this year. The original Totem Lake Mall was built in 1973, and has experienced varying states of vacancy and neglect. The renovation and expansion, for brands like Whole Foods, includes five separate structures, each with unique steel framed canopies. JAMA is utilizing the ConXtech steel moment frame system on Building B, a 2-story, 120,000 square foot space – the first use of the system in the state of Washington.
