MultiCare Medical Center Central Utility Plant

Mason Contractor: Henderson Masonry, Inc.
Architect: Contacts Without Company

Project Description

The MultiCare Medical Center Central Utility Plant packages steam, emergency power, electrical distribution and medical gas systems into a building respectful of its surroundings and true to its purpose. Facing beautiful Wright Park, it embraces its setting and is compatible with nearby vintage structures. The masonry exterior keys off these buildings while street level windows offer tableaus of inner workings. Brick patterning and steel canopies modulate the facades and reduce their scale. Relief portraiture, inscriptions and brickwork mural reveal the history of the plant's technology. MultiCare' Central Utility Plant addresses its functional, aesthetic and civic obligations while offering an entertaining, educational public attraction.

“The MCAA is truly trying to move the masonry industry forward.”
