Location: Seattle, Washington

This $16 million project involved construction of a six-story, 75-unit affordable apartment building for homeless individuals, with 38 of the units designated specifically for veterans. The building also houses a food bank, medical and dental clinic, and mental health services. McDermott Place has been built to strict environmental standards, meeting Washington State’s new Evergreen standard and is LEED Certified equivalent. The roof material has high-reflectivity to minimize heat gain; a rain garden cleans storm water runoff before it enters the detention vault; and bike racks and bike storage are provided for residents, food bank clients and staff.

  • Cold-formed steel framing
  • Epoxy-grouted anchor bolt installation
  • Mechanical anchor bolt installation
  • Post-tensioned concrete
