Walsh Group projects recognized for excellence in Seattle, Tacoma and Northern Washington
Seattle, WA - Three Walsh Group projects have been recognized for construction excellence in the Northwest Region. The awards include:
- Trailside Student Housing, Seattle, Washington - Best Residential/Hospitality Project (ENR Northwest)
- Bates Technical College Center for Allied Health and Sciences, Tacoma, Washington - Best Higher Education/Research Project (ENR Northwest)
- Middle Fork Nooksack River Fish Passage Project - 2022 Construction Management Association of America (CMAA) Project Achievement Award
TRAILSIDE STUDENT HOUSING
Trailside Student Housing project included ground-up construction of a 265-unit, 5-over-2 student housing apartment project which is a mixture of unit types from studio to five-bedroom; each bedroom is afforded a dedicated bathroom, making this project denser from a plumbing standpoint than most multifamily projects. In total, the building is approximately 387,000 gross square feet with 169 parking stalls within a one-story, below-grade parking structure.
BATES TECHNICAL COLLEGE CENTER FOR ALLIED HEALTH AND SCIENCES
The new $44 million Center for Allied Health and Sciences includes classroom and lab spaces that replaces the previous West Annex Building on Bates’ Downtown Campus. The 65,500-gross-square-foot facility contains a state-of-the-art Sim Lab, Skills Lab and STEM facilities. The Center for Allied Health Education will advance the use of simulation technology to enhance learning, while providing a safe and effective way to train students, resulting in a more qualified workforce in multiple allied health science fields.
MIDDLE FORK NOOKSACK RIVER FISH PASSAGE
The Walsh Group has cleared the way for the Washington State salmon population to freely traverse the Middle Fork Nooksack River. The project removed the Middle Fork Nooksack River dam, restored a stream channel, and completed a new fish bypass outfall. The bypass guides any fish in the diversion intake safely through the fish screen facility and back into the river a short distance downstream. The project also featured a new municipal water diversion facility, including a diversion intake structure, pipeline extension, and fish screen facility.
