    The Greenfire Campus in Ballard has been awarded an ASHRAE Technology award at the Society (national) level, placing second for its innovative building design in the areas of occupant comfort, indoor air quality, energy conservation and mechanical design. The project previously was awarded ASHRAE Technology awards at both the Chapter and Regional levels before moving on to the national level.

    Congratulations to the project team of The Greenfire Group, LLC, The Seneca Group, Johnston Architects, WSP Seattle, and Walsh Construction for this award. PSF is proud to have been the design-build mechanical designer and contractor for this conservation-based project.

  • SPTI Multitool iStock_000011788180_XXXLarge_WebOur Special Projects Tenant Improvements (SPTI) Division has been busy since we last reported on them. Since then, this team, led by Mike Gifford, manager of the SPTI Division, and Scott Pickler, Superintendent, has nearly tripled in size and exceeded their goals by doubling their volume each year for the past two years.

    What makes this division so special is the combination of the project executives’ relationships with their clients and their more direct and holistic approach in the field that is catered to meet the needs of each specific project and client. As single points of contact for each of their clients, team members bring experience from their unique backgrounds in engineering, estimating, fabrication, and plan-spec work. This allows team members to pursue projects that are best aligned with their individual expertise. By reducing the number of people involved to the absolute minimum, project communication is clearer and project execution is more efficient, allowing the SPTI team to be more cost competitive and deliver a better product. Being flexible, resourceful, and pragmatic in their approach, SPTI team members are able to provide quick response and resolutions to potential problems. This is especially important due to the nature of SPTI projects as logistically-challenging, quick turnaround projects containing all the processes of large projects only compressed into a much shorter timeframe.
