PCL Construction in Seattle to Build Amtrak’s Locomotive Service Facility

Seattle, WA (June 8, 2017) – The PCL family of companies is pleased to announce that PCL Construction Services, Inc. in Seattle has been awarded the Amtrak Locomotive Service Facility, Seattle King Street Coach Yard project.

The project will include demolition of the site’s existing buildings, utilities, tracks, and other structures, as well as construction of a new 31,000-square-foot locomotive shop. The yard’s existing tracks will be reconfigured to allow access to the new facility, which will be equipped with a new 125-ton drop table and a 55-ton overhead bridge crane.

“We’re excited to once again be working with Amtrak,” said Aaron Wiehe, district manager for PCL’s Seattle operations. “This is an exciting project that will upgrade Amtrak’s mechanical shop and improve operational efficiency.”

PCL’s experience with Amtrak includes construction of the Maintenance of Equipment facility and a new Warehouse, Administrative, and Health and Welfare Building, which won a 2013 National Design-Build Honor Award from the Design-Build Institute of America.

The project is scheduled to begin in June 2017 and to be complete in June 2019.
