Environment Excellence

March 22, 2022

Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) has awarded a Graham project with the 2021 WSDOT Environment Excellence Award. The Olympic Region Maintenance and Administration Facility (ORMAF), located in Lacey, WA, won in the category for promoting energy conservation and greenhouse gas reduction.

The awards are presented by the Environment Services Office from WSDOT, with the winners chosen from WSDOT projects that exemplify environmental excellence, commitment to environmental protection, community enhancement and energy conservation. Our ORMAF project was selected for dedication to reducing energy consumption, optimizing workflow and increasing energy efficiency.

“I’m thrilled Graham’s project won this award. Both our Buildings & Infrastructure divisions came together to successfully complete this design-build, while delivering exceptional service to WSDOT,” says Trevor Graafstra, General Manager of Graham’s Seattle Buildings team.

Completed in May 2021, the ORMAF reduces energy consumption, optimizes workflow and increases staff efficiency by eliminating the need for workers to be spread throughout various locations and introduces a modern, energy-efficient design. This project has demonstrated outstanding achievement in its goals towards energy conservation, permit compliance, LEED Silver Certification requirements and greenhouse gas reduction.
