Advanta Office Commons Campus
“Building a fast-track project like the Advanta Office Commons required a structural engineer that could offer collaborative solutions and efficient ‘work-wise’ design. DCI Engineers provided an unwavering commitment to support our work in the field and to meet the team’s schedule obligations.”

Creating Constructive Office Environments: Engineering unique features to form productive working environments
With three, seven-story buildings and a separate eight-story parking structure, this office campus in Bellevue is now occupied completely by Microsoft. In addition to providing structural engineering services for the shell and core of the buildings, DCI Engineers also performed tenant improvement design work for the campus to prepare for Microsoft’s move into the space.
- Each seven-story building contains 175,000-sf of office space with one sub-grade parking level for a total of 200,000-sf.
- Features a steel-framed, 25’ tall great room located between two of the office buildings, with a water feature and grand fire place.
- Tenant improvement work included 25,000-sf of kitchens and cafeterias, multi-purpose rooms, conference centers, and 20,000-sf of server rooms and labs within each of the office buildings.
- Architectural drop cloud ceilings, partition/movable walls, and other features were detailed to minimize the support system and maximize usable space.
