  • A new year is bringing exciting changes to PSF. Effective March 2nd, after nearly 40 years in our current location in the South Park neighborhood of Seattle, our corporate office will be relocated to the Gateway Business Park, a short distance to the south.

    The Bullitt Center is featured in the latest online quarterly edition of GeoOutlook Magazine, published by Oklahoma State University and the International Ground Source Heat Pump Association (IGSHPA). This feature article highlights the innovations behind the first infill commercial building to seek the Living Building Challenge certification. PSF worked closely with the team on design, value engineering and constructability issues for all mechanical systems, including plumbing, piping and HVAC on this groundbreaking project. Start-up, test & balance and commissioning were also performed by PSF.

    Excerpt from GeoOutlook Magazine:

It is one of the most popular things to see on tours. “That’s our work for the most part,” Willis says, of the mechanical room. PSF did all the inside geothermal installation. “We are getting a lot of comments on the workmanship,” he said. “We are very, very proud of it.”

He spoke at the luncheon and hung around for a while and I just walked up to him and asked if he would take a pic with me!”
