Owner Sound Transit
Certification LEED Gold

Every day, more than 3,500 passengers board Link light rail at the Sound Transit Angle Lake Station, heading north towards Sea-Tac Airport, Downtown Seattle, and the University District. Sound Transit expects that number to increase to well beyond 5,000.

FSi was the mechanical engineer for the $380M extension of the light rail from Sea-Tac Airport to Angle Lake, including providing fire protection for 1.5 miles of tracks, and HVAC, plumbing, and fire protection for the new station.

The project met Sound Transit’s standards, and Sound Transit voluntarily met City of Seattle’s stringent energy code. The project originally had a goal of LEED Silver certification. We are proud to have helped the team achieve LEED Gold, with energy-saving features including solar-ready rooftop connections, a cistern to collect rainwater for landscaping, natural ventilation for the elevator shafts, and an energy-efficient HVAC system for station offices.

You can take the light rail to the airport, fly to Spokane, and continue your journey in a nice clean rental car, thanks to our design.
