Project Name: Nintendo
Project Locations: Redmond, WA

AUE provided the design and detailing for the 280,000 square foot Nintendo headquarters. The four-story building is a LEED Gold building located in Redmond, Washington.

Our services included framing to support the openings since they were too large to use conventional on-site framing utilizing box beam headers and jambs studs. Metal studs were used in panelized construction to support exterior stone finish. Thirty-foot-long panels were designed as a truss to support the gravity loading and connected to the structure at only 2 gravity loading locations. A typical panel was braced at 7 other locations to resist the wind load. The panelized approach saved the contractor a great deal of time onsite which allowed them to meet a very aggressive construction schedule.
