The 145,000-square-foot OMF East facilities provide 14 service bays, a cleaning and wash bay, shop areas, parts storage, and office space. The facility includes seven overhead bridge cranes and six monorail hoists. This new Eastside facility supplements the existing Link OMF in Seattle’s SODO neighborhood.
“We are pleased to support Sound Transit with a facility that enables efficient operations as it continues to grow the regional transit network,” said Bill Ferris, Stantec Vice President. “This sustainable facility will ultimately help thousands of Puget Sound residents get where they need to go safely and reliably. It’s exciting to play a part in the creation of an eye-catching and highly functional facility.”
“It has been a long journey since starting design in 2017, but the entire team kept a project-first approach throughout and collaborated as partners to reach this milestone,” said Ryan Piper, Hensel Phelps Operations Manager.
Stantec led the design of the project, while Hensel Phelps held the prime contract and was the design-builder on the team. Stantec provided design management; LEED facilitation; electrical engineering; mechanical engineering; site design management; environmental permitting; and design for lighting, IT/communications, security, signals, SCADA, acoustics, and track integration. The project combined Stantec’s global expertise from offices in Seattle, Lynnwood, and Bellevue, Washington; Vancouver, British Columbia; New York, New York; Phoenix, Arizona; Dallas, Texas; Atlanta, Georgia; Las Vegas, Nevada; and Sacramento, California.
