Poulsbo WA (May 2017) – Tim Ryan Construction, TRC, is breaking ground on its newest project, expected to transform the way people live, work and eat in Kitsap.  Located adjacent to its corporate headquarters on 8th Ave, this mixed-use building is an exciting addition to Poulsbo.  The two-story building with underground parking will house retail, office, restaurant and special event space creating a unique community gathering place.

This building is scheduled to be the first private or public building in Poulsbo with the USGBC LEED credentials. The building boasts a beautiful, functional design meant to offer a means for people to explore the welcoming space and all it has to offer honoring sustainability and community.  The project is on track for LEED certification by the United States Green Building Council by virtue of the very design elements that it naturally possesses. Using sustainable elements enhances the building design as well as the operational efficiency, and the impacts that they have on our community both now and long term are important to us.

Tim Ryan Construction collaborated with Rice Fergus Miller, Inc to achieve a building design that meets the needs of the tenants and enhances the community.  Sensitive to the adjacent properties, including a Poulsbo city park, the building was designed for visitors to enjoy the park as well as to enhance it. Using the property to showcase edible landscape plantings wherever possible will provide an opportunity for community members to gain an understanding of nature in an unprecedented manner.  Easily accessible by foot, bus, bicycle or car, the building will be an attraction for both locals and visitors alike.

“This new building is a family project, built for Tim Ryan Properties” said TRC President, Dan Ryan. “The lease spaces are designed for third generation family member businesses; ChocMo, High Spirits liquor store, Crabtree Kitchen & Bar and Vibe Coworks.  As longtime residents of Kitsap County, the family is excited to bring this unique building as a lasting improvement to the community.”  Construction is expected to be completed in early 2018.

This is a long-time Kitsap County team with Rice Fergus Miller hitting the 30-year milestone in 2017. TRC is celebrating its 60th Anniversary this year and has had a hand in construction in Kitsap County since the early ‘70s. In particular, the company has had a huge impact on Poulsbo. The development of the Poulsbo Village Shopping center as well as the construction of the Poulsbo Village Medical Center, the former Union Bank Building, Poulsbo Athletic Club, West Sound Academy and numerous medical, dental, professional office and retail tenant improvements throughout Poulsbo have been performed by TRC.  Tim Ryan Construction was awarded the Poulsbo Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year award in 2016 for its contributions to the community as a supporter of youth organizations, health and human services and the arts.
