Construction is well under way for the First Hill Streetcar Operations and Maintenance Facility. Rushing is providing MEP engineering and sustainability consulting services for this Seattle Department of Transportation LEED-NC Silver-targeted project.
As part of this year’s Rail~Volution Conference, which Seattle will be hosting, Rushing’s Alexandra Ramsden will speak on a panel discussing various stakeholder interests in the project. The workshop, “Corridor Planning: Seattle’s 1st Hill Streetcar Project,” will run from 2:00 to 3:30 pm on Tuesday, October 22 at the Seattle Westin. The session will highlight “the importance of developing a successful interface between the design of a street-running streetcar project, the accommodation and encouragement of a high-volume bike and pedestrian environment, the incorporation of sustainability measures and the coordination with community development objectives.”
Rushing is an official sponsor of this year’s Rail~Volution Conference.
