The Transit Operations Center provides a relaxing plaza for employees with seating and views as part of comprehensive landscape improvements. Being a part of the SeaTac International Airport facility, the project had to comply with stringent parameters that maintain aviation safety and operations and also maintain consistency with the SeaTac Airport Landscape Master Plan.
Nakano Associates also provided design for pedestrian access through the parking area, a stairway to connect the two levels of the site separated by a 13 foot grade differential, and slope stabilization on nearly 1 to 1 sloped planting areas.
