Urban Storage and Worklofts

Seattle, Washington

Paul Brienen is the Engineer of Record for this ten-story work loft and storage facility with two levels of parking.  Urban Storage and Worklofts is located adjacent to Interstate 5 and the old Rainier Brewery.

The lateral system is a concrete core wall system, utilizing an innovative coupling beam reinforcing system, developed and patented by Paul Brienen specifically for minimizing coupling beam depth in high-rise construction. 

 

The vertical system is steel-framed with concrete floors.  A full-floor steel-framed cantilevered truss supports the northeast corner of the building where site conditions inhibited a more conventional column layout.
