WA MU Seattle Art Museum

A joint construction project between Washington Mutual Bank and the Seattle Art Museum necessitated the demolition of the former Arcade Plaza Building. Since the project site was adjacent to the Museum, vibration was a significant concern. Rhineā€™s specialized high reach excavators were a perfect fit for the job. The demolition of the nine-story concrete building and adjacent parking structure were completed within the restricted time schedule and without the use of explosives or a wrecking ball.
