WRNS Studios Tenant Improvements

WRNS Studios Tenant Improvements

Auburn Mechanical partnered with DPR construction on the full-mechanical, design-build TI located on the 5th floor of the Market Place Building. WRNS Studio is a planning and architecture firm from San Francisco, with a focus on high-quality, sustainable design. Recently WRNS was named the #1 architecture firm in the US by Architect Magazine for 2018, and they are in the early stages of a strategic push into the Seattle market. Their constant pursuit of sustainability was evident during the design process. LEED V4, WELL 2.0, and LBC (Living Building Challenge) were all carefully considered and selectively integrated into the design. LBC presented a new challenge to the Auburn team who took it in stride. With only a handful of projects, LBC certified in Seattle there was limited historical information to reference. A component of LBC is the “Red List” material list which asks that design teams show due diligence in engineering these red-listed projects materials. Material vetting, selection, and purchasing were all key phases of this project and required extensive research and documentation.

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 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. This is the first Port of Seattle job Auburn has been involved in for several years. The Pallino Tenant Improvement is located in a terminal area with three other restaurant tenant improvements currently under construction.

UW Kincaid Hall Renovation

UW Kincaid Hall

Auburn Mechanical is the full-mechanical contractor for a whole-building renovation of the University of Washington Kincaid Hall. The UW originally built the building in 1969 as the zoology building, and after years of use, it is being upgraded up to modern standards for use by different departments within the university system. The project utilizes the progressive design-build delivery. Auburn Mechanical is teamed up with PAE to design and build entirely new mechanical and plumbing systems for the building. The users are currently scheduled to move out of the building in May of this year to allow for demolition and abatement before construction starts in the fall. The expected completion date is late 2020. This will be Auburn Mechanical’s second progressive design-build project with the University of Washington.

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.
