Salmon Bay Marine Center, Multiple PhasesPhases One and Two
The Salmon Bay Marine Center includes four commercial/industrial buildings located on the waterfront of Seattle’s Salmon Bay. It provides much needed marine related shop and office space to serve the local maritime industry.
Major site improvements were completed during construction, including the demolition of existing buildings and the installation of new utilities. The foundations are auger cast piles with a structural concrete slab. Architectural metal siding and structural steel are featured design elements on the buildings’ exteriors.
Project challenges included a project site that was bisected by a 72” sanitary sewer line, which was tapped during construction. This phase of the project required careful planning and scheduling to allow other site work to continue uninterrupted.
New, two-story 25,000 SF metal shop building that includes workshop and office space. Once completed, crews will begin construction on three additional 5,400 SF, three-story buildings. The new buildings will be similar to the previously constructed buildings with wood framed and exposed steel structure, metal siding and metal roofs.
