This $38.8 million project consisted of a new 43,000-square-foot cruise ship terminal.  Inspections included soil compaction, reinforced concrete, augercast concrete, epoxy grouted anchors, expansion anchors, structural steel fabrication and erection, ultrasonic testing and asphalt compaction.

Located at the end of Pier 91 in Seattle, this new 145,000 square foot facility for the Port of Seattle serves the growing cruise industry.  The building is a large, open structure with the passenger arrival and baggage handling facilities located on the first floor and the passenger ticketing lobby and waiting areas on the second floor.  There are two exterior balconies that provide access to the gangways and vessels.  An arrangement of skylights and lighting controls provide an energy efficient, day lit space on the second floor and the main entry.  A rain screen wall assembly provides a high-performance energy efficient building shell that will be subject to severe wind and rain and salt water spray on the end of Pier 91.  Perforated metal panels dissolve the edges of the building and exposed steel structures provide scale to the immense structure.
