Boeing – Headquarters
Renton, Washington / 300,000 SF
This project is the headquarters of one of the most distingished organizations in the Pacific Northwest – Boeing Company. The office building opens to a 4-story glass enclosed atrium that connects to all four adjacent floors through the open balconies. HVAC fan terminals and diffusers act as a sound-masking system to inhibit cross transmission of noise between offices in this open-concept office building. The air handling system was designed to double as an active smoke control system for the atrium to eliminate the need for additional fans. Supply air to the atrium is provided by a 120-foot long, continuous floor supply grille served by a 60-in diameter underground duct.
