Plant 1 at Snoqualmie Falls*
Significant improvements to Plant 1, the historic and operational area above the falls at PSE’s Snoqualmie Falls hydroelectric project, are currently under construction with an anticipated completion date of April 2013. In collaboration with BOLA Architecture + Planning and Lehrman Cameron Studio (I&E), two structures will be restored for interpretation and education: the historic train depot and carpenter shop. Situated adjacent to the railroad, a timber deck surrounds these structures connecting them to a third: a new shelter for a large historic generator display. *AECOM project now under FBP.
Tollgate Farm Master Plan*
An APA award-winning project, the Master Plan developed for the 48-acre Tollgate Farm property was able to achieve consensus amongst the goals of varying interest groups. The plan balances the need for active and passive recreation in the valley, habitat restoration along Ribary Creek, historic preservation of the farmhouse, agricultural conservation of the large meadow, and preservation of views of Mt. Si. Tollgate Farm is an iconic rural landscape and community resource that will continue to define the character of the City while providing for its growing recreational needs. *AECOM project.
