Redmond, Washington / 27,000 SF
Pattison General Contractor selected MacDonald-Miller for the HVAC design and construction of their 2-story, 27,000 SF build-out for Echonous in Redmond. Echonous is working to shrink ultrasound technology into portable hand-held technology, essentially miniaturizing proven healthcare technology. Their first floor is packed with essential laboratory equipment, and the second floor is filled with office spaces for employees. We engineered this highly challenging project – one that required meticulous load analysis for all the equipment and pressurization requirements. Due to the chemical nature of the exhaust systems, it was critical to separate them. This required an extensive makeup air system due to the exhaust requirements. And, we had to consider that the office floor utilizes gas-fired rooftop units. This project had critical schedule deadlines to meet investor demands, yet MacMiller was up to the task and will finish the project on time. Great collaboration delivers grand results!
