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.
The 3rd & Lenora site is situated in Belltown near Seattle’s retail district, Pike Place Market, and South Lake Union. This 36-story mixed-use residential, office and retail space building will allow individuals to live, work, and play all within one spacious and modern facility. This project is being delivered in two phases—a shell and core and a tenant improvement phase. Auburn is the design-build contractor for both phases.
The new, 1.15-Million-SF addition to the Washington State Convention Center doubles the capacity of the existing space by adding approximately 250,000 SF of exhibition space, 125,000 SF of meeting rooms, and 60,000 SF of ballroom space. The mechanical systems are designed to flexibly and efficiently serve the variable loads that are associated with the convention center while minimizing energy consumption. A significant amount of airflow is required to ensure proper space conditioning and good indoor air quality for the convention center occupants.
The Seattle Academy CUB is the home of their district’s middle school students. The structure includes a gym, commons space, administrative space, roof access, and one level of underground parking. The project is targeting LEED Gold Certification with its goal of sustainable construction.
