    Funded by Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and designed by Seattle-based NBBJ, this $500 million campus has three six-story office buildings and will be the new home for the Foundation with total capacity of 2,100 staff. Adjacent to Seattle downtown landmark Space Needle, these buildings sit on 12 acres ex-parking lot and will be completed into 2 phases, 900,000 sf for the first two buildings and 400,000 sf for the third building respectively.

    The project adopted lots of sustainable features including large living roofs, rainwater storage, thermal energy storage, smart light and ventilation, native and non-invasive landscapes etc. This campus is the world largest LEED Platinum non-profit building, and is planned to last 100 years instead of the typical 20 to 30 year timeline envisioned for typical office space projects.

    Atlas US team worked closely with client to ensure this is the most efficient and best aesthetic solution for full coverage, and that critical construction timelines were achieved.
