Location: Bellevue, Washington
DEA provided civil engineering and LEED design services for a new 16-story, mixed-use hotel and commercial facility, which covers one city block in downtown Bellevue. Services included site grading, storm drainage, stormwater detention, and utility and frontage street improvement design. Improvements were required for all four frontages. The site challenges included 26 feet of vertical drop over the site, requiring close coordination with the architect and design team for door and landscape grades and utility connections. This project was designed to achieve LEED Certification.
