Our client needed some help on this Multi-family residential high rise on 9th & Lenora in downtown Seattle.

BIM Designs, Inc. was responsible for coordinating with our client's existing Detailing team for POCs on certain floors and then worked through the mechanical room on the roof, providing a LoD 400 clash free model to the owner. The deliverables on this project were a clash free model, insert/Sleeve locations, shop drawings, spool drawings, and access to the BIM Designs Lead detailer on the project during installation. This helped answer any questions from the field during install.

Stratus is a 45-story tower located across from Amazon’s main campus. On April 8, 2017, months of planning, coordination, and shop fabrication culminated in a series of flawlessly executed crane picks at 9th & Lenora.

The tight project schedule, as well as the fact that the main mechanical room was not located on the highest floor, necessitated that the major mechanical room equipment be set in place before the slab above could be formed and poured. Our client seized this opportunity to create seismically engineered, prefabricated skids for the large hydronic pumps and boilers. In addition, the set domestic water boilers and a hot water storage tank directly into place. In the following weeks, the remaining equipment and prefabricated piping were lifted into place.

Our client Facility Solutions is a "full-service, design-build mechanical contractor in the Pacific Northwest with over 1,000 talented professionals, 10 locations and [its] own prefabrication shop."
