Located in Queen Anne, the Bayview Retirement Community offers enhanced retirement living improved with the renovation of the old building. Auburn Mechanical is the MEP engineer and design-build partner.
The Walton Lofts project was the new construction of the design-build, 12 story, 156,300-SF apartment building with 136 units featuring a loft-like setting. The 12-story building offers studios, one bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments. Walton Lofts is a Green Globe project with a building constructed of post-tensioning concrete and includes three floors of underground parking. Auburn Mechanical worked closely with the architects and other design consultants through the design process.
7th & Gilman is a mid-rise apartment complex on a six-acre space with 340 multi-family units. Apartments will be built in three buildings, with each building being five-stories tall, and will reside above underground parking garages. The scope of work includes full mechanical on all buildings associated with the project.
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.
This design-build project was the new construction of three residential towers, a podium, and four stories of above-ground parking. The completed project is 877,000 SF. The structure consists of post-tensioned concrete on a deep pile foundation and is a mixed-use development. The project utilizes in-slab PEX water piping, which is all pre-fabricated as is the majority (95%) of D/W/V piping. The use of the Trimble device for in-slab MEP activities rapidly expedited the layout time while 3D modeling increased MEP coordination and productivity allowing us to forecast conflicts (of all types, architectural, structural, etc.) ahead of time and design accordingly.
Hoa Mai Gardens is a new 111-unit, low-income-housing apartment complex in the Yesler neighborhood of Seattle. The project was for the Seattle Housing Authority, and Auburn was the design-build and full-mechanical contractor. Other features of the project include a rainwater harvesting system that provides water for the toilets and the solar-powered boilers.
The Joseph Arnold Lofts is a design-build, 12-story apartment building. The building features PT concrete and three floors of underground parking. Auburn Mechanical worked closely with the architects, and other design consults through the design process. Of paramount concern, the parking garage would sit more than 20 feet below sea level—located on Elliot Avenue. Coordination with the general contractor was essential to ensure below-slab piping, vaults and penetrations were to be watertight. The 3D MEP coordination allowed the team to “fly through” the partitioned sections of the slab where vaults and the 30,000-gallon stormwater retention tank were segmented from the slab and enclosed in formed, waterproofed concrete.
This mixed-use project included the construction of affordable housing for studio, 1-bedroom, and 2-bedroom apartments. The roof is unique in that it includes a unique community space with dog-friendly amenities. Auburn Mechanical provided mechanical, plumbing, gas, and boiler services on the project.
Helios is a 400-unit, 40-story apartment building in Seattle. The base of the tower features retail space with the podium of the tower facilitating four floors of above-grade parking located right above the retail level. Auburn Mechanical’s scope of work included design-build and plumbing.
