Old Stove Brewery

Old Stove Brewery at Pike Place Market

The Old Stove Brewing Co. is Seattle’s newest brewery, and Auburn Mechanical had the privilege of being part of the team that brought the brewery’s second location to life. Located on Western Avenue in the Pike Place Market’s new MarketFront building, the brewery overlooks the Puget Sound and has great connectivity to the revitalized waterfront. A temporary bar was established early in the project to coincide with the MarketFront’s summer grand opening. The full brewery and kitchen have opened. Auburn’s crews were faced with challenges both new and familiar, including the installation of a steam line which not only required coordination between Pike Place PDA, SDOT, Historic Seattle Preservation Foundation, and Enwave (Formally Seattle Steam) but also had to work around an art installation along Western Avenue. Existing MEP infrastructure was relocated to provide more headroom for the new mezzanine. The brewery also required a waste cooling and pH neutralization system, which is in a high traffic parking garage.

Kimpton Hotel

Kimpton Hotel

The Kimpton Hotel (Palladian) is a 97-room hotel in the Seattle City landmark Palladian building. The building structure needed to be updated for seismic reinforcement due to the building being historical. The emergency generator could not be installed in the existing location in the basement which was an interesting logistical challenge.
