Seattle Seahawks Training Facility

Project Name: Seattle Seahawks Training Facility
Project Location: Kent, WA

AUE provided the design and detailing for the exterior wall framing of the three story Seahawks Headquarters building that wraps around the Seahawks indoor training facility.  This exterior framing was designed to support large curtainwall framing, stone spandrels/pilasters, brick veneer and wood panels.  The building is located along the Lake Washington waterfront which required resistance to high wind loads due to the increased exposure from the lake.  The stone and brick on the exterior walls required a very stiff support frame to resist damage to these brittle wall veneers while still allowing for the vertical movement of the supporting floor and roof strutures.
