University of Washington Husky Union Building Renovation

As a subconsultant to Perkins + Will, Greenbusch provided comprehensive Acoustical Design and Vertical Transportation Consulting (elevator) services for the Husky Union Building (HUB) Renovation. The renovated facility provides a contemporary, upgraded building featuring new dining and food options, conference and meeting spaces, and a much-improved experience for students, faculty and visitors.

ACOUSTICAL: Acoustical design for spaces throughout the HUB, including Administration and Student Government offices, Conference and Meeting Rooms, a multipurpose Black Box performance space, two Ballrooms and pre-function spaces.

VERTICAL TRANSPORTATION: Scope included work on six of the seven geared-traction elevators: four replacements and two modernizations (three passenger only, one freight only, and two dual-purpose, each serving between 3 and 6-stops).
