Annex Remodel


What's happening

A renovation of the Development Center and the east end of the Pierce County Annex is currently in its first phase. The work is planned in two phases, and is expected to be completed in late Spring 2019.

Project milestones

  • Notice to proceed given Jan. 14
  • Wall and furniture demolition of Phase 1 work area complete Jan. 25
  • Electrical demolition complete for Phase 1
  • File storage room fire suppression system disconnected and moved offsite
  • Construction of the new Phase 1 wall located adjacent to the development counter complete
  • Materials abatement
  • Office walls framed
  • Electrical roughed in

Next steps

  • Cable tray installation
  • Fire system modifications


  • Consolidation of staff around the Development Center for improved customer service
  • A customer service window that is in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) will be added
  • Improved building security
  • New finishes and furniture


Our goal is to minimize impacts to our services, customers and staff. Customers visiting the Development Center Lobby may experience construction noise and dust, and see areas covered with plastic sheeting. 

Staff will temporarily relocate to different areas of the east end throughout the work.


By relocating all staff around the Development Center, we expect to see improved collaboration between staff and our customers. Upgrades to the space will create an improved environment for our customers and staff.
