Project Overview

OAC assisted the Owner, Architect, and Contractor with building enclosure system design for this complex tower project. The new, 27-story apartment tower, located in Seattle’s Belltown neighborhood, offers sweeping views of downtown Seattle, Lake Union, Elliot Bay, and the iconic Space Needle. Green, sustainable features include a rooftop terrace, efficient HVAC systems, and a building envelope system designed to regulate air and moisture leakage while maintaining the unique architectural design intent. The structure is constructed of post-tensioned concrete and clad with a complex series of window wall systems, storefront systems, Nana Wall systems, and various rainscreen cladding systems.

OAC supported the design and construction team by developing customized building envelope details to withstand high winds and driving rain the tower is exposed to due to its proximity to Puget Sound. OAC provided detailing of continuous weather and air barrier systems, including isometric details of end conditions and pre-construction mock-ups. Unique flashing and transition details were also created to accommodate the complex systems and integration. OAC coordinated field water testing of select storefront and window assemblies to verify the quality of glazing and the installation. In accordance with the new Washington State Energy Code, the building was also designed and tested as an air barrier.
