The Pike Place Market contacted SSI to handle a special project that was going to be a challenge. The market had several massive historical windows that needed to be fully replaced. These 16 foot long, 8 foot tall historical wood windows were located above one of the markets greatest attractions, the original Starbucks. SSI had to have the new custom wood windows fabricated for this project that took over 4 moths to produce. Once the windows were built the real work began. Temporary construction walls were built inside of the second floor commercial spaces including the Pink Door Restaurant. All of the work was done during evening and weekend shifts so the businesses could remain open during construction. Each of the window banks too over 12 people to maneuver them in to place for the installation. Extensive surface prep was done in the window rough openings including shot blasting, concrete patching, new pressure treated fillers, and fluid applied water resistant barriers in order to ensure that the windows never had any water intrusion issues. SSI installed new exterior trim, sills, nosing and sealants on the exterior of the building to ensure a historically matching finish. The interiors of the windows were all finished to match the existing finishes, which involved setting up a small wood shop on the roof top deck in order to mill all of the trim onsite. It was quite an undertaking, but they turned out great.
