As part of a design team for a fast-growing hi-tech company in Seattle, Säzän provided mechanical, electrical, and technology engineering services for tenant improvements in a six-story building in Seattle’s SODO District. The design included open-floor-plan offices, break-out rooms, conference rooms, quality assurance labs, a catered food service area, and product design and construction shops.
Since tenant comfort was a high priority, the mechanical design included an energy-efficient and space-saving chilled beam system for office areas. The chilled beams provide cooling using a combination of primary ventilation air and chilled water that reduce the amount of ductwork needed to deliver cooling and heating.
Säzän’s electrical design included normal and emergency power, an arc flash study, access control/security systems, circuiting for interior lighting, and fire alarm system.
The building’s telecommunications infrastructure was upgraded with structured cable systems, electronic security systems, and audiovisual systems.
Säzän also provided MEP commissioning services, in compliance with the Seattle Energy Code.
Project Challenges and how we met them:
To stay within the aggressive project schedule, the installation of the chilled beams was streamlined via the BIM process using the latest version of Revit MEP for BIM documents.Owner: Confidential
