This project, funded through a combination of public and private sources, was the second phase of construction for the SBI - it connects to the initial building through a series of corridors and bridges. Three levels of office space lie above a 30-space parking garage on the building's ground floor. The second floor was built using post-tensioned slabs and the two top floors are 3/4" T&G plywood with a 1 1/5" concrete topping slab. A skylight provides natural lighting to all the office levels below and a glassed-in terrace on the top floor provides a common area for meetings and celebrations-and a panoramic view of the city of Tacoma.
