Sound Transit – East Link
BET&R provided part-time monitoring services and associate technical consulting for Sound Transit. BET&R performed part-time monitoring of the roofing, cladding, fenestration systems, and storefront and window curtain wall at the auxiliary buildings and parking garage, including metal panel cladding systems, fenestration systems, and associated flashing and sealants. BET&R documented the installation of the building envelope components, and assisted in resolving issues regarding the roofing and glazing installation and watertight performance components. BET&R also provided building envelope-related submittal and RFI review and response, substitution requests review, as well as shop drawing review. BET&R participated in quality control meetings to review the building envelope aspects of the project.
State of Washington Labor & Industries Headquarters
BET&R has worked both as a Prime and a sub-consultant on various roof replacement, exterior survey and repair projects on this headquarters building over the past ten years. Most recently BET&R prepared construction documents and provided construction administration services on a glazing repair and gutter retrofit project to address chronic water intrusion issues. BET&R has successfully worked with the State through a transition in project managers and a difficult bidding climate.
University of Washington
BET&R was engaged to provide product recommendations and peer design review for the roofing and waterproofing aspects of this new, state of the art stadium facility. Specifically, BET&R’s technologists assisted the University of Washington’s Husky Stadium by providing technical consulting and recommendations (i.e., pros and cons) of standing seam sheet metal structural/architectural panel roof system compared to a PVC membrane roof system. BET&R provided technical consulting and assisted the design build team in addressing detailing challenges. During the construction phase, BET&R provided submittal and RFI responses, and inspection of waterproofing and roofing installation. BET&R prepared field reports and action item matrix for the project over an 18 month period.
