Auburn has promoted Don Shelton to Piping Superintendent!

Don has long been an important member of the team, especially on Auburn’s industrial and Boeing projects. Don has always been heavily involved with work beyond his foreman responsibilities (by assisting estimating and training newer members of the team) which makes him a natural fit to fill a leadership role at the company.

Auburn’s 2018 Annual Summer Meeting

Auburn’s 2018 Annual Summer Meeting

Auburn’s annual summer meeting, featuring a barbecue and ping pong tournament, was a success. The event started with a “state of the company” from President Stacy Johnson, department reports, and a safety discussion. After the business side was complete, the barbecue and charity ping pong tournament began.

Thank you to everyone who participated in raising money to benefit the Auburn Food Bank, Auburn Youth Resources, and American Heart Association. Congratulations to the ping pong champions – John and Joel (2017 repeat champions!).

Full Mechanical Project, SAAS CUB, Completed

Full Mechanical Project, SAAS CUB, Completed

Auburn Mechanical has finished work as the mechanical engineer and design-build contractor on the Bayview 62+ Community Renovation and Addition. The project added 120 living spaces to the community and is located in Queen Anne, Seattle. The project included residential rooms, therapeutic pools, boiler rooms, a sky lounge, and a garden room.

The team did not approach the project as something that gave them problems. They found it as fun and asked themselves “How can we get creative?” and “How can we do well?” Working in a 24/7 occupied space was a logistical puzzle that required creative solutions from our project team. For example, we had to schedule around naps and the lunch hour.

The project scope was full mechanical (plumbing and HVAC). Areas of work included:

• Boiler Replacement
• Ductwork Installation
• Air Handler
• Residential Bathrooms
• Kitchens
• Waste Lines
• Therapeutic Pool Comfort System, Dehumidification, and Heat Exchanger
