The University of Washington Bothell and Cascadia College’s new 175,000-square-foot, five-level parking garage will provide 600 new parking stalls on the Bothell campus. The plumbing scope includes a sand/oil interceptor, above- and below-grade drain piping, and sump pumps. The HVAC scope includes three mini split AC units, an exhaust fan, and fire dampers. Auburn was the progressive design-build contractor.
Full-mechanical contracting services are being provided for the Seattle Municipal Tower (SMT) Chiller Replacement project. The project includes replacing and installing 4,000 tons of water-cooled chillers, as well as the complete replacement of the central plant for the 62-story tower. The project involves crane picks from a condensed, downtown street to the new central plant via access atop of the building’s parking garage. Auburn is 3D detailing and fabricating all mechanical equipment and components for the complete central plant replacement.
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’s scope of work included design-build plumbing.
Auburn 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 project materials. Material vetting, selection, and purchasing were all key phases of this project and required extensive research and documentation.
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 provided 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. The restaurant is located in a terminal area with three other restaurant tenant improvements currently under construction.
UW Kincaid Hall was a full-mechanical, progressive design-build renovation. The project benefits the Department of Psychology and the Department of Biology by updating the infrastructure, ventilation, and plumbing. As a progressive design-build project, Auburn was an early contributor to the team, by creating unique ideas to improve the quality and cost of the mechanical systems.
The UW Tacoma McDonald-Smith project was completed while occupied by a tenant on level one. The historic 1890 building was renovated, which added office and meeting spaces as well as a new mechanical system. Auburn was responsible for the HVAC and plumbing on the project. The building was fully renovated to provide classroom, office, and meeting spaces.
Auburn is the plumbing contractor for over 200,000 square feet of office space for REI’s new multi-building headquarters at The Spring District. Auburn is completing on the shell and core, a two-level garage, and conference space. The project features green features, is aiming for LEED certification, and will emphasize energy efficiency.
