Washington State Light Industrial Park
The new 40-acre State Light Industrial Park in Tumwater is shared by the State of Washington’s Departments of Natural Resources and Correctional Industries and was completed in 2006. The DNR facility replaces a previous facility in Lacey, while the DOC/Correctional Industries component of the project will provide offices and warehousing for CI distribution operations.
All project buildings are of steel construction with horizontal metal siding, standing seam metal roofing, and share a common color palette for continuity within the campus. The project is LEED Silver certified and features natural, undisturbed islands within the site as well as wide perimeter buffers to screen neighbors and the public.
The new 40-acre State Light Industrial Park in Tumwater is shared by the State of Washington’s Departments of Natural Resources and Correctional Industries. The Helix graphics department provided design and coordination services for two large murals in the building.
The mural at the main entry includes a 100-year timeline of Washington State. Helix worked closely with the archive department at the University of Washington to gain access and rights to use the images. The second mural is located in the main entrance to the Department of Natural Resources offices and focuses on the history of their fire program by using the rings of a tree as a timeline for the years.
