Puget Sound Energy retained the services of Terence L. Thornhill Architect, Inc. to develop construction documents for an operations and maintenance facility located in Pomeroy WA. This building is part of the Lower Snake River Wind Energy Project.

 

The office section is constructed of timber frame materials. A 30,000 gallon fire suppression system was incorporated into the design due to the remote location of the facility.

 

 

 

 

Central to the project design was a board room capable of being used by the public.

                      

 

 

 

Intensive communication systems were integrated into the design to accommodate the microwave technology that allows the turbines to “speak” to the system wide telemetry Instruments.

 

 

 

 

The shop area contains a 30 ton bridge crane and is constructed from a pre-engineered metal building system. The office area houses the staff of PSE, and the turbine manufacturer
