A Seattle-based construction and energy-efficiency contractor has expanded its Pasco offices to coordinate project teams and job site operations across the region.
McKinstry recently opened a larger office to accommodate staff growth and the future buildout of a 10,000-square-foot fabrication shop at 5702 Industrial Way in Pasco.
The mixed-use office and light manufacturing facility features multiple offices and collaboration spaces. The expansion was completed Sept. 24.
The Pasco fabrication shop will specialize in heavy-gauge steel and sheet metal along with kitting space for packaging, assembly and last-mile delivery.
“Construction remains a major economic engine for the Tri-Cities region, accounting for more than 10,500 jobs,” said Pat Roberts, director of mechanical construction for McKinstry’s Inland Northwest region, in a news release. “McKinstry relies on this amazing talent pool to drive high-performing building projects. Expanding our presence in the Tri-Cities gives us access to the region’s best talent to benefit our clients and our projects across the Northwest.”
McKinstry manufactures and assembles mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems in off-site fabrication shops.
McKinstry has long served clients in the Tri-City region, with an emphasis on construction and deep energy retrofits.
McKinstry first opened a Tri-City office in 2012 to provide critical construction and energy services for clients in health care, data center, food and agriculture, industrial and other markets.
Darigold turned to the company to design and install mechanical systems as part of its ongoing expansion in Sunnyside. The effort kept the Sunnyside plant operating smoothly while saving hundreds of thousands of dollars in the process. Darigold has turned to McKinstry as a client since 1960. McKinstry also has performed ongoing energy retrofits and upgrades across the Washington State University Tri-Cities campus, including a recent boiler upgrade in the Elson Floyd Building.
A McKinstry open house is planned from 3-6 p.m. Oct. 22 at the new office. The public is invited to attend. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
