Choux Choux Bakery tenant improvement
Architect: 2812 Architecture
Owner: Scott Schreffler
ABC members: Ahlers & Cressman; Dexter + Chaney; Propel Insurance; Safety Matters
Choux Choux Bakery is the first retail space in the Market at Potala Place, an indoor farmers market at the Potala mixed-use project in Everett.
Synergy Construction worked with Path America Farmers Market LP, the architect and consultants to develop a cohesive plan for the design, layout and construction budget. Synergy’s team worked with the owners on interior finishes and the construction schedule, and then installed the interior wall finishes, cabinet cladding, and old growth wood beams.
Because this was a new building, the scope of the project included polishing concrete floors, layout and core drilling of the post-tension slab for the plumbing rough in, ensuring sound insulation at party walls, painting, and framing the non-bearing metal studs. Crews also installed drywall, MEP and HVAC systems, fire sprinklers, light fixtures, outlets and HVAC diffusers.
Synergy provided the cabinets and countertops and installed the owner-provided sinks and kitchen equipment.
The Synergy team dealt with a unique challenge when, prior to the bakery build out, the building went into receivership. Synergy built the mixed-use building and knew the development team well, but the receivership required that Synergy agree to payment terms before moving forward with the new work while old balances from prior to the receivership were still outstanding.
Synergy completed the 1,088-square-foot retail space on budget with minor delays caused by the receivership. There were 231 hours worked with no recordable or lost-time accidents.
