  • 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.

  • PSF recently hosted a meeting of the Seattle Bluebeam User Group (SeaBUG) at our corporate headquarters. In this meeting, PSF team members delivered a presentation on using Bluebeam Revu as part of PSF’s document management workflow as well as the advantages of using Bluebeam Studio versus SharePoint, DropBox or ShareFile. In addition, the meeting included some additional discussion about approaches to training and best practices, as well as how to approach making organizational changes. This user group meets regularly to unite local AEC professionals and share knowledge and discuss trending industry topics. For more information on the group, or if you are interested in attending future meetings, please contact Kellie Ward at kward@bluebeam.com.
