Pallino Tenant Improvements

Pallino Tenant Improvements

Located in the central terminal of the SeaTac Airport, the Pallino Pastaria is a full-mechanical, tenant improvement project under Wilcox Construction. Our team performed the grease ducts and hoods, fire wrap, and provided standard insulation in the space. There was plenty of design assistance from our project management and field team to ensure the project was a success. The restaurant’s owner is directly involved in many aspects of the project and has required assistance in making his vision into a workable reality. The restaurant is located in a terminal area with three other restaurant tenant improvements currently under construction.
