Client: Clark Construction
Owner: Washington State Convention Center
Role: Cost Estimating (MEP) and Change Order Review

The project comprises a 1.5 million square-foot addition to the existing Washington State Convention Center. Included in the addition is a new ballroom, flex space with an outdoor terrace, and a new exhibit hall, which will span underneath Olive Street and be bordered by three prominent city streets. There will also be a podium to house future development in the area. Located in the city’s urban core, the convention center addition will provide views of the Puget Sound and surrounding city-scape, and will serve as a link between the downtown corridor and Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. The building’s façade will be comprised of glass curtain wall with iconic elements to both showcase the structure’s architectural design and complement the fabric of the downtown area.
