THE LAKE UNION BUILDING

Client: Henbart, LLC
Architect: JPC Architects
Location: Seattle, WA

Description: Capital exterior improvements including new feature cornice, new main level entry canopies, an outdoor meeting space, exterior façade modifications, and interior HVAC upgrades throughout. All the windows were replaced using View Dynamic Glass, a new window technology system that features electrochromic programmable tinting to maximize energy efficiency while maintaining unobstructed views of Lake Union.
"Being on the leading edge involves unforeseen challenges and opportunities, and the exterior renovation of our Lake Union Building involved both. As one of the largest installations of View Dynamic Glass projects to date, there was an exceptionally high degree of coordination with the manufacturer, installer, and tenants required and Foushée executed flawlessly. We engaged Foushée early in the process and they added value at every step, from initial feasibility studies and due diligence, through design, construction and delivery. The Foushée team worked together at a high level and resolved all the unforeseen problems inherent in renovation construction projects, ultimately delivering on time and on budget. They were an excellent partner and I would recommend without hesitation."
