Seattle Waterfront Improvements
The Seattle Waterfront is a span of parks, piers, ferry and ship terminals, promenades and public spaces, stretching from Pioneer Square on the south to Shilshole Marina on the north. Since 1993, Dalton Electric Company has performed work all along this stretch of waterfront, most recently an extensive electrical remodel on the entire pier 57 retail shop building. This upgrade included mapping out the existing electrical systems and replacing all equipment and under dock raceways that were determined to be less than adequate. In 2013 we were part of the construction team chosen to expand the Fisherman’s Restaurant and Miners Landing. These two projects required our crews to work around the owners restaurant schedule as not to disrupt business. Later that year we were tasked with replacing the electrical service serving the Edgewater Hotel on pier 67 after storm debris damaged their old service conduits. This was uniquely challenging due to the fact we had to keep the Edgewater operating while replacing the main electrical service that provided power to the Hotel.
In 2015 we teamed up with W.G. Clark Construction to renovate the century old Ivar’s restaurant building on Pier 54. Our team was challenged by construction of the adjacent Elliot Bay Seawall project and an unyielding schedule for completion. We overcame these problems by creative construction solutions and intensive coordination. The final result earned the project the “2016 Grand Award for Construction” by the AGC.
