BELLEVUE ART MUSEUM
BELLEVUE, WA


The new Bellevue Art Museum replaced the current facility located in the Bellevue Square Mall. The new museum is a stand-alone facility, with three stories above grade, and two levels of below-grade parking. When the Bellevue Art Museum Group asked the General Contractor, Sellen Construction, to select a design-build team to provide temporary shoring, they selected Ground Support PLLC and Malcolm Drilling Company Inc. The presence of existing buildings and less competent soils along the excavation perimeter, posed several challenges for the design-build shoring team. The project is currently under construction with 3 of the 4 lifts of shotcrete and soils nails completed.
