DCI Engineers provided structural design services for Avalara Hawk Tower, the commercial portion of the larger Stadium Place development. Avalara Hawk Tower comprises of a concrete 23-story, 282-key hotel connected to a 12-story Class A office tower with a shared eight-story atrium and skybridges.
DCI Engineers provided the primary structure for both towers, which is post-tensioned concrete slabs supported by concrete columns. The lateral force resisting system is special reinforced concrete shear walls, with some buckling restrained braced frames for the office/parking tower. The engineering team designed high-rise gravity and lateral systems to meet the client’s design and performance criteria.
Hotel structure is 23 stories tall and the 12-story tower includes offices, parking, a health club, a conference level, and roof top restaurant.

The project includes a covered skybridge connecting the two buildings at Levels 6 and 8 and a non-accessible roof structure at Level 3 covers the arcade space between the two buildings.
The overall Stadium Place development is considered one of the larger transit oriented developments on the West Coast.
