Nisqually Tribal Administration Building

This 26,000 square foot facility was designed by Womer & Associates and constructed by Korsmo Construction. The project included a unique roof line reminiscent of the native salmon as well as a two story cable supported curtain wall. The building also has an indoor water feature, handcrafted cedar art, conference rooms and space for the tribe’s various divisions: financial, legal, tribal council, planning, operations staff and security.

Korsmo worked closely with Native-owned subcontractors and the Nisqually Tribe’s human resources department to achieve twenty percent Native participation in the project’s work force.

All elements of construction, including tribal hiring practices and minimizing impacts to ongoing operations due to the proximity of construction to the existing tribal government facilities, were performed at the highest level by the Korsmo project staff.
