Luxury Living in a Centralized Location, with Amazing Amenities

Union West Apartments includes 357 units spread over three multi-story residential apartment towers joined by a common two-level podium. Amenities include ground-level retail space, an on-site 255-space parking garage, a pool deck with cabanas and grilling areas, a fitness center, a pet spa with a dog run, and lounging areas.

Our team provided complete mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, low voltage, IT and security engineering design, and construction documentation. In addition, we performed preliminary engineering analysis and design, prepared schematic drawings and alternates, and provided energy modeling analysis for the building to achieve LEED credits for certification. We also assisted with bidding and negotiations for contractors and attended site meetings to provide on-site observation as the work progressed.
