Spruce Apartments (Fauntleroy Place), Seattle, WA
Working with Chinn Construction LLC, CHG erected the steel on this six-story, mixed-use apartment building. As with most buildings of this type, most of the structure above grade was wood construction. Still, CHG was able to work efficiently with other trades on this project to install the steel stairs as well in excess of 100 tons of structural steel, architecturally-exposed structural steel, and steel decking. The tight urban site was a particular challenge, and CHG worked closely with the general contractor who provided a tower crane and operator for shared use.
