Element Seattle SeaTac Airport
Civil Engineering, Land Surveying, Commercial | 26,524 sf
Tukwila recently gained a modern hotel experience, the Element by Westin. This five story hotel is perfectly placed between Seattle, Tacoma, Bellevue and the SeaTac Airport. The Element has a total of 177 rooms, a full service lobby bar, fitness center, indoor pool and spa, EV charging stations, conference rooms and an outdoor patio with built-in grilling and fire pit.
The entire project consisted of designing and constructing the 26,524 sf hotel on a 3.4 acre site, along with the associated drive aisles, parking, landscaping, storm drainage and utility connections. Barghausen provided plans for the demolition and TESC, horizontal control, utilities, grading and storm drainage on site. The site was relatively flat and had minimal previous storm drainage. Our team designed an underground stormwater detention vault and a modular wetland with 13 total catch basins throughout the site. Throughout the project trees and natural vegetation were preserved to the fullest extent possible.
