The KWA International Place senior housing project is a 42,500 SF wood-framed, 3-story, 55-unit senior housing complex located in Tacoma’s Salishan HOPE VI redevelopment project. Marpac Construction was charged with ensuring that the look and feel of this facility complemented the surrounding single-family homes, a difficult task since the apartments were the only multi-floor senior housing facility in the area.

During the schematic design phase, Marpac provided preconstruction services to ensure the stringent construction budget and schedule was met. Careful planning and problem solving included reconfiguration of the building layout to accommodate existing site conditions, and value engineering certain materials and subtly revising certain building elements in order to reduce costs.

The project received the 2008 Excellence in Construction, MultiFamily Category from the Associated Builders and Contractors of Western Washington.
