Washington State Convention Center Addition

The Washington State Convention Center in downtown Seattle, WA is gaining a 1.5 million square-foot addition. The project is located one block northeast of the existing facility and will double the convention center’s capacity. The project includes construction of a new ballroom, flex space with an outdoor terrace, and a new exhibit hall. The $1.7B addition, named the Summit, is a 15-story structure that will provide views of the Puget Sound and surrounding city. Construction will also include a podium to house future development in the area.

American Bridge is a subcontractor to the Clark/Lewis Joint Venture. AB’s scope of work includes supplying and erecting approximately 22,000 tons of structural steel, 1,400,000 square-feet of metal decking, 36 sets of pre-engineered metal stairs, 157 buckling restrained braces, and over 50,000 pieces of miscellaneous metals items.
