  • Construction continues on the new 12-story lab and office building at 400 Dexter Avenue North that will include approximately 254,000 square feet of office space, approximately 15,500 square feet of retail space and 128,000 square feet of below-grade parking.

    One unique aspect of this project is the location of a complete mechanical room on the third floor that will serve all 12 floors. Instead of using separate floor-by-floor systems, a single mechanical room design was developed to better meet the needs of the client, giving them additional floor space. This re-design included placing the exhaust system components that will serve all 12 floors all on the 3rd floor. This mechanical room consists of four large pump skids (heat recovery, chilled-water, condenser-water, and process condenser-water), three water-cooled chillers, and four exhaust air handling units.

    All equipment was procured early in the process, pre-fabricated off-site at our fabrication shops, and crane-lifted and placed prior to the 4th floor pouring. We worked closely with the structural engineer and general contractor to stage the equipment in a way that did not disrupt other trades and saved time in the schedule.

  • The following video highlights PSF crews preparing, delivering, and installing sections of a large rooftop air handling unit that was installed at 1616 Eastlake. The sections were crane-lifted and skillfully placed on to the rooftop. Every component of this unit was pre-planned to minimize the work required on location and disruption to building occupants.

  • 5Z6A9880_webLast month, we welcomed clients and partners to an Open House and Client Appreciation Event held in our new corporate headquarters. It was great to get the opportunity to thank our clients for their partnership and support over the years. More than 150 people joined us for amazing local brews, pub food, live music, and a look at what we’ve been up to lately. This year, we certainly have a lot to celebrate, including 25 years under our current leadership, 40 years as a design-build mechanical firm, and 118 years as Puget Sound business leaders.

    Many of the structural elements throughout the facility were handcrafted by members of PSF, including the woodwork of the reception and conference room tables, the stainless logo signage in the lobby and exterior of the building, the steel railings along the stairways and mezzanine, 1,952 linear feet of steel fabricated into standards to support ductwork and lighting, and, of course, the HVAC and plumbing systems.

    Thank you to all that were able to stop by. If you have not yet had a chance to check out our new digs, please do not hesitate to contact us for a tour of the facility. We’d like to also take this opportunity to thank our partners involved in the completion of the facility: Stock & Associates, Ellsworth Builders, Inc., Case Engineering, Holmes Electric, PCS Structural Solutions, and Fluid Concepts.
