The Kaiser Permanente facility in Burien is a design-build, plumbing, and HVAC project that included the new ground-up construction of a single-story, 23,000-SF medical office building. Mechanical work was completed for the labs, pharmacy, imaging, procedure rooms, exam rooms, offices, and common spaces. The scope consisted of a sanitary waste/vent, storm drain, variable-refrigerant-flow (VRF) system, domestic water systems, natural gas, exhaust, and associated ductwork.
Auburn was the full-mechanical contractor for the retrofit, and work was done throughout the facility with an emphasis on office space and the industrial rubber manufacturing room. The rubber manufacturing room included open facing ductwork, so the room required master craftsmanship and an aesthetically pleasing installation. Plumbing was also updated throughout the building for bathrooms and other water services.

Auburn was the owner-direct mechanical contractor on the Westland Distillery, Process Cooling System Retrofit. Westland was using domestic water to cool the distilling process, which was not economically or environmentally viable.

The Stone Bridge Marriott Residence Inn is a 15-story, 320-unit hotel that utilizes a fluid cooler and vertical-stack heat pumps in the guest rooms for stand-alone room controls. Also included is a mechanical room. Challenges on the job included a fast-paced completion schedule and building in a downtown environment. Auburn teamed with Mortenson and the rest of the major subcontractors to successfully implement a construction schedule and a pull-planning process that helped smooth out a tight schedule. The project also included a challenging MEP detailing process with limited ceiling space with a complex HVAC distribution that included a smoke-control system.
Auburn was the plumbing and HVAC piping contractor on the remodel of the multi-floor, occupied hospital wing.
