Seattle Genetics – Building 6 & 7
This will be the 6th (Building 6) and 7th (Building 11) major projects we’ve completed in the last 6 years with Seattle Genetics. Building 6 is a 2-story complete building overhaul for a new research and office facility for Seattle Genetics. Our client has a focus on maintenance and future flexibility, so keeping the mechanical scopes consolidated and easy to access is critical. The Haakon laboratory air handling units we are installing offer a redundant dual tunnel configuration allowing routine maintenance to take place without downtime to the lab’s HVAC system.
On the 2nd floor mechanical level, Sheet Metal, Plumbing, Fitting and the other MEP trades worked together to use MTR’s and duct-racks to support the fast-paced construction schedule and the future building maintenance needs. The MLAB, supported by Detailing and Engineering modeling efforts, allowed Seattle Genetics and the construction team to get a look at the routing and layout ahead of installation to identify installation or future maintenance issues.
On the 1st floor lab spaces there are over 400 lab gas connection points supported by lab gas racks and ceiling panels so that the owner can interchange and relocate equipment based on future needs. In addition, all of the 1st floor heating and cooling needs are supported by equipment on the 2nd floor above, which will allow for limited impact to the lab or office spaces when maintenance is required. Above all, schedule and flexibility are critical to success. Thus, all departments, through design and into construction, have worked diligently to anticipate the owner’s needs and provide another successful project in a tight construction window.
