Reflecting the owner's guiding principles in the building design, this nerve center for Alaska Airlines’ focuses on people, culture, and sustainability

  • Infiltrated and treated 100% of site stormwater runoff on-site
  • Used materials that contributed over 40 products with Environmental Product Declarations
  • Efficient indoor fixtures
  • LEED Silver Certified

O'Brien360 provided LEED® project management and LEED contractor assistance to the Copper River Phase I Hub project, located in SeaTac, Washington. The LEED v4 New Construction project is situated on a larger 7-acre site that will be the home to future phases of Alaska Airlines’ expanded corporate campus. The LEED Silver certified project included the 6-story office tower with approximately 120,000 gross square feet of conditioned area, including an Integrated Operations Center (IOC), “the nerve center of operations for the airline”, on the top floor, and a training and recruiting center on the ground floor.

The project reflects the owner's guiding principles in the building design, with a focus on people, culture, and sustainability. A typical office floor will have a central gathering space in the middle of the building with larger meeting rooms throughout, connecting stairs, and pantries on most floors. Focused work areas are located in each wing with individual workspaces toward the perimeter to maximize light and access to views. Core elements, including exit stairs, will be concentrated in the middle or the ends of the building to maximize the flexible work area.

This project used materials that contributed over 40 products with Environmental Product Declarations and infiltrated and treated 100% of site stormwater runoff on-site. It is anticipated to save 29% in annual energy costs and over 30% water savings through efficient indoor fixtures. Alaska demonstrated its strong environmental stewardship and commitment to operational sustainability by developing and instituting a Green Cleaning Plan, an Integrated Pest Management Plan, a Site Management Plan, and a Facilities Maintenance and Renovation Plan. Their committed stewardship on the project helped it garner LEED Silver® certification in September of 2020.
