University of Washington Seattle
University of Washington Stevens Court Exterior Renovation
This three-year contract with King County is for the performance of multiple concurrent facilities maintenance, tenant improvements, repair, and renovation projects. Projects vary in location and can involve repair, selective demolition, remodeling, restoration, and new construction of public buildings/facilities, parks, recreation facilities, walkways, parking lots, and civil site improvements.
To date King County has used GLY Construction for the following types of projects:
Shake Mill Left Bank Fencing Project | North Bend
GLY provided protection fencing for the Shake Mill Left Bank Flood Plain. The existing site receives yearly flooding, so a fence line was installed to protect the adjacent property owners and the public. The project entailed metal mesh fencing, split-rail fencing, and traffic gates.
King County Aquatic Center Bolt Replacement + Coatings | Federal Way
King County Aquatic Center was originally constructed for the 1990 Goodwill Games and needed structural repairs to existing skylight systems. GLY installed an engineered scaffolding system over the existing catwalk system to access the skylight systems’ metal supports for repairs. In addition to replacing rusted and damaged steel bolts with union iron workers, GLY partnered with NI Painting, a MBE firm, to coordinate a specialized Tnemec paint coating system for the finishing of the project’s surface.
King County Courthouse Water Damage Repairs | Seattle
The King County Courthouse experienced a large plumbing leak that flooded the first and second floors’ southwest office spaces [including Courtrooms, and Jury rooms]. GLY quickly expedited our team to scope, estimate, and mobilize. Our subcontracting partners and staff coordinated with King County’s on-call remediation contractor to remove the damaged drywall systems. GLY’s scope then involved working on repairing drywall, cove base, carpeting, ceramic tile, and painting.
Fairwood United Community Methodist Church Green Stormwater Project | Renton
This was a pilot project to create a raingarden in a 5,000 SF landscape island in a church parking lot. The Church initially contacted King County about a drainage problem on the church property, and following a site investigation, was deemed a candidate for a green stormwater infrastructure makeover. When complete, this project will allow for the separation of the church roof rain water to the new raingarden, redirecting nearly a half acre of rooftop stormwater runoff. Roof gutter repairs will maximize runoff collection to try and capture the entire 20,000 square foot of roof area.
