We’re excited to be part of a home town project in providing the access control and emergency call systems for the City of Richland new City Hall. The new facility will replace the current City Hall built in 1958 with a new 3 story facility which will combine three existing city services into one location. The City of Richland is continually growing and we are pleased to be a part of that growth!
Due to the growth of the Tri-City area and established liaisons with federal laboratory and viticulture, Washington State Tri-Cities is becoming a “go to” destination for students across the country. We are excited to be part of WSU Tri-Cities’ growth by way of the installation of the network and communications infrastructure for the first phase of WSU-TC Student Housing Facility. (Go Cougs!)

Being part of Washington State University’s growth in Pullman, Spokane, and the Tri-Cities has been an exciting and rewarding endeavor. We started in 1999 with the Pullman Campus Fiber Optic Cable project and continued through the remodel of Martin Stadium and Football Operations facility, including the Martin Stadium, Bohler Gymnasium, and Beasley Coliseum DAS projects. WSU’s Spokane campus projects include the Heath Science Center, Nursing Center, and South Campus project along with various campus fiber optic installation projects.
Our relationship with Lourdes Health Network started in a small way in providing miscellaneous service work in the form of network cabling additions, and has since grown through the years to providing services for access control and CCTV upgrades and additions, along with structured cabling projects. Lourdes is truly a first-class hospital and network of facilities, and we are excited about being a small part of their success.
Marie Curie is Pasco School District’s 73,000 square foot, 2-story STEM elementary school project that Interwest provided the fire alarm, IP Intercom/Clock, security, access control, IP CCTV, and classroom A/V systems for. The project was challenging, with install and integration of all the “operational” systems — but it was a lot of fun to bring these systems to life!
The BPA’s Pasco Maintenance Headquarters is comprised of an administrative office and two maintenance buildings where Interwest provided the fire alarm, security, access control, and CCTV systems. The construction of the 40,000 square foot facility was well coordinated and lead to a smooth completion!
As part of a complete upgrade of Pasco High Schools classroom A/V systems, Interwest installed 74 new Extron A/V units along with district-provided projectors in the high school’s classrooms, Library, Band, and Weight rooms. Due to the construction of the structure, the project required extensions or new surface mounted raceways to route system cabling to the A/V outlet locations.
As part of the addition and remodel to the Whitworth University Music Hall in Spokane, Interwest provided Category 6 and 6A cable infrastructure and new fiber optic backbone to existing and new network outlet locations and IP low voltage devices. The challenge for this project was routing network cables between the new addition and existing areas where there where pathway limitations, as well as maintaining existing network services while building out new communications equipment rooms.
The Pullman High School addition and remodel project was a cable infrastructure project that included the fabrication of multiple network equipment rooms, and installation of over 2,400 horizontal cables, 13,000 feet of fiber optic cable, and 5,000 feet of innerduct pathway. The multi-year transformation of the phased high school included a full refresh of the athletic facilities and fields. The finished project is an aesthetic tribute to the Palouse area!
