Vulcan Blocks 44, 45, 52e
An area primed for redevelopment, Seattle’s South Lake Union has now become home to Amazon’s corporate headquarters, with three buildings occupying three blocks of the neighborhood as a keystone to this up-and-coming area and serving as a template for future developments.
Glumac provided MEP design assist, energy modeling and commissioning, for which the owner Vulcan, Inc. set high energy efficiency goals, including a mandate that Block 44 would operate at between 16% to 20% more efficient then the ASHRAE 90.1-2007 standard. All three core and shell projects achieved LEED Gold certification. These high goals required an advanced design incorporating complex lighting and HVAC controls with commissioning keeping a watchful eye on the construction, installation and testing of all elements.
Glumac also provided commissioning services for the tenant improvement portion of the projects for Amazon Phase VI, Nessie and Bigfoot (Block 44), Phase VII, Brazil (Block 45) and Phase VIII, Apollo (Block 52e), with a scope in line with the requirements of LEED for Fundamental and Enhanced Commissioning. Systems commissioned include: Rooftop evaporative condensing air conditioning units with series fan powered variable air volume boxes, water source heat pumps including the condenser water loop systems, garage ventilation systems, building lighting controls systems and various types of unitary systems.
