Seattle Central College Seattle Maritime Academy


This new 25,000 square-foot, two-story steel framed educational facility provides a unique space where students can train for a career in the maritime industry. In addition to renovations of the existing Maritime Building, the project includes classrooms, simulation labs, engine mechanical labs, office space, and a green roof. The building was constructed with structural steel framing, concrete floors, concrete shear walls, and an extensive exterior skin system comprised of brick veneer and storefront. Pump handle foundations were utilized to allow the south wall structural steel frame to occur over the existing waterfront bulkhead deadmen, which fully utilized the site for the required programming.
