Our geotechnical engineering ingenuity brings an 850-foot Seattle tower to life
in newly constructed tower
depth excavated (one of the deepest excavations in Seattle’s history)
- Wright Runstad & Company planned to build the second-tallest building in downtown Seattle with as much underground parking as possible.
- To accomplish this high-profile project, the company would have to keep next door’s 41-story Rainier Tower stable despite difficult soil conditions.
- Haley & Aldrich met that challenge by identifying a first-ever design and geometry of excavation and support for dense urban centers, which can be leveraged to maximize use of other partially developed city blocks.
- We also provided a performance-based seismic design for the tallest Seattle tower built in the past 30 years, resulting in a safer, more resilient structure.
