Reinbold Engineering Expands to the Seattle, WA Market
We are pleased to announce that we have been named as the Mechanical Engineering and Energy Modeling consultant for this exciting new Westbank project. This new mixed use project shall include two 45 story residential high rise towers and a single four story low rise residential tower, all residing on a common 3 story commercial and retail podium. The building shall include six floors of below grade parking and back of house areas, including a 5 story underground parkade. Each building will have its own penthouse mechanical room and the retail podium will connect the two towers with a glass “Galleria.”
Building amenities include a rooftop pool situated at the top of one of the high rise towers, rooftop Gardens, fitness center and an outdoor dog park.
The building complex is targeting LEED Silver accreditation and shall meet the demanding Seattle energy code requirements. The mechanical systems shall consist of two separate mechanical plants, with high efficient condensing boiler plants and water based cooling systems. Suite heating and cooling will be accomplished through 4-pipe vertical stack fan coil units. The below grade parking ventilation system shall be controlled using demand based ventilation strategies to reduce the energy consumption of the building.
Once completed, this project will include approximately 1048 residential units, over 140,000 ft2 of retail and commercial space and ample parking for 791 vehicles.
