ECH provided design and construction administrative services for a new 5,500 SF lounge for British Airways at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. The lounge, an addition to the South Satellite at the airport, is an upscale business travelers’ lounge with features that include a small library, water fountain, club and first class lounges, a wine bar, a 100’ radiused window wall overlooking the airport and unique features throughout. Project challenges included extensive asbestos abatement, fire safety upgrade to an existing stair tower, and the need to seismically upgrade the central position of the terminal in the area of the lounge through multiple floor levels including the baggage level, customs level, international level and concourse level with its associated concession areas.
