As the seasons change, progress continues in Olds Station on the PUD Service Center. The traffic flow road construction changes were completed on time and motorists are adjusting to the new routes.
As the weather allows, construction crews continue concrete foundations and steel structure work, followed by roofing and enclosing Operations Buildings B – G in order to do interior work during the winter months. The main administration building, “A” is in final finishing stages and getting ready for equipment start-up.
In order to start moving in, it will be necessary to lay asphalt and pave parking lots and that will come in early Spring 2023, along with extensive landscaping. The schedule has several administration groups beginning the move to Olds Station in late May.
Watch this space for further updates and pictures.
Now visible from Hwy 285 as you drive in and out of Wenatchee, the new PUD Service Center Building “A” is taking shape. Construction began one year ago on Aug. 6, 2020 and less than a year later – July 21, 2021 – the final steel beam was put into place. Work already has started on preparing the site for Buildings “B” through “G”.
Construction is slated to continue through 2023. The phased move-in begins in June 2023 with all customer service functions and Commissioner meetings slated to begin in the fall of 2023.
