3rd & Lenora’s tagline is “not your everyday, every day.” This project is definitely unique with its size and style. The mixed-use building will be 36-floors high and 552,753 SF, being a great place to work and live because of its close location to downtown and the iconic Pike Place Market.
Amazon Block 45 includes a 13-story, 317,000-SF office building with four levels of below-grade parking. The building includes a reception area, interview rooms, and commissary kitchen located on the first floor. The second floor houses training rooms, usability labs, a podcast room, and café. Private and open offices and conference and break rooms are located on floors three through twelve. Auburn Mechanical was the design-build, plumbing partner on the project. Our scope of work included:
800 feet of underground plumbing
Installation of the storm drain system, roof and floor drains, and all associated piping
Sanitary waste and vent piping, plumbing fixtures and equipment, piping, and metering; condensate drain system and natural gas piping
Installation of domes; hot and cold water for the commercial kitchen, core and shell restrooms, and break rooms
The Goodwill JTE is a two-story office space over one level of ground-level parking comprising a total of 60,000 SF. The building includes energy efficiently and water-conservation features, including a rainwater harvesting and cistern system. For these efforts, the project received the LEED Silver designation. The new building allowed the Seattle Goodwill to increase the number of free education classes they could offer. Additionally, administrative space was also increased.
MG2 Architecture, one of the largest architecture firms in the state, moved their headquarters from Bellevue to Seattle. For MG2’s new office, Auburn was responsible for the complete install of a new LG VRF System in a 60,000 SF shell and core building. The system includes 150 tons of cooling and heating, with associated low-pressure ductwork and control system.
Auburn Mechanical is the plumbing contractor for multiple projects on the nearly completed F5 Tower.
The primary focus of the project is a 44 floor, warm-shell high rise with core utilities to support future office tenants on the upper floors. The tower also includes nine levels of parking as well as tenant amenities. The shell-core tower construction is pursuing LEED certification.
The hotel tenant improvement on levels 1-16 included 189 guest rooms, a commercial kitchen and restaurant, conference rooms, and a hotel spa.
The project also includes a new 7-floor parking structure for the adjacent Rainier Club as well as a valet office to support that property.
Last but not least, Auburn Mechanical was the plumbing contractor for the renovation of the First United Methodist Church next door to the new tower. The work consisted of a full seismic upgrade of the existing structure as it was converted into the hotel’s event space. Architectural elements of the building were preserved throughout construction.
Auburn recently completed full-mechanical renovations at Microsoft’s Pebble Beach Offices. The three-building campus includes 330,000 SF of new mechanical systems supporting complete tenant improvements of the primary office buildings. The team strategically laser scanned existing spaces to provide the engineers and detailers with extremely accurate as-built information early in the design phase.
