Sellen Construction Awarded Major Project

Tacoma Art Museum has selected Sellen Construction as the general contractor to oversee the construction of the museum’s high profile 15,000 square foot expansion, which includes the new Haub Galleries and plaza re-design.

Construction of this private sector (non-governmental) project will involve all major building trades. The museum and project team are committed to pursuing broad participation from qualified Tacoma area subcontractors. The Haub Galleries will also offer TacomaArt Museum an opportunity to expand its staff by nearly 20% to better serve its visitors and maintain the expanded facility.
The Haub Galleries will house works of Western American art gifted to the museum by Erivan and Helga Haub announced earlier this year. Groundbreaking for the new wing is scheduled for Early Summer 2013 with building opening date scheduled for Spring/Summer 2014.
The expansion project will strengthen the museum’s presence and enhance its visibility on Pacific Avenue. It will double the museum’s gallery space, improve access from the parking area, provide opportunities for public art, enhance the museum’s lobby space, and provide larger interior event and public gathering opportunities.
Chamber member Sellen Construction is the largest locally owned commercial construction firm in the Northwest with more than 80 employees residing in Tacoma and the surrounding area, and has a long-running history of continuous work in Tacoma and Pierce County.
