CHG Building Systems
Location: 35323 S.E. Douglas St., Snoqualmie
CHG Building Systems delivered an outstanding recreational hockey facility that will be enjoyed by many in the coming years. This 72,689-square-foot building houses two ice rinks, locker rooms, equipment areas, an entrance lobby, meeting areas and offices.
To complete this project, two groups worked simultaneously on separate elements of the job. One group completed the shell design and construction while the second group executed the tenant improvements and built the ice rinks. Team members were also brought in from around the country to bring unique skills and expertise around the construction of indoor hockey facilities. CHG also worked alongside Northway Construction and its design team to provide an interior column layout that optimized the use of the interior space.
Pacific Northwest weather was an ongoing concern as the project commenced without a slab in place. Furthermore, materials and equipment could not be placed on top of the miles of delicate piping required for the ice rinks. This made the metal building construction and steel erection portion difficult because the materials, equipment and piping were exposed to inclement weather during the challenging roof assembly.
The roof structure was pre-assembled into large module sections and then hoisted into place. This was a safer, more efficient way to build, allowing for the expedited completion of the roof. Other trades were then able to begin their many months of work on the ice rinks.
