We provided full architectural services for the Okanogan and Wenatchee National Forest, Cle Elum Ranger Station Office Addition. The current ranger station consists of a 3,900 square foot main office built in 1963 and includes another approximately 5,800 square foot combination of trailer office and modular buildings. his project will include removing the trailer office and modular buildings and provide an office addition to house all office staff under one roof.
The design for development of this site included the following:
1. Achieve silver level LEED certification for the new building.
2. Analyze and, if necessary, remodel existing space in conjunction with design of the new addition. The analysis concluded that a new secured reception area be provided within the existing ranger district office.
3. Incorporate provisions for an advanced electrical meter and electrical metering system.
The new 4,000 square foot addition will replace the trailer office and modular buildings, connected to the main building by a breezeway.
