“Arctic Sheet Metal was a valuable partner on the completion of the Park Avenue West Tower project. They approached their work pro-actively exceeding quality and performance expectations.”
HELPING DEFINE PORTLAND’s high-rise SKYLINE
Arctic’s experience, quality, and skillful delivery come together in one package when it comes to high-rise vertical HVAC installations
EXPERIENCE SPANNING ALL CORNERS OF DOWNTOWN PORTLAND
Landmark Portland names like Mirabella, Atwater, Encore, Pinnacle, Metropolitan, Ardea, Astor, Hassalo on 8th, Park Avenue Tower, The Union, John Ross, Kohler Pavillion, Strand are a big part of the city’s skyline and identity….and Arctic has installed the building “dry” mechanical systems in all of these buildings and many others. Our specialized skills with BIM modeling and preplanning, safety, prefabrication, pre-packaging, material handling, and working with minimal laydown spaces have become highly developed to handle the unique challenges of these types of buildings.
Arctic’s management staff and supervisors have learned the subtleties of all aspects of “dry” mechanical systems for high-rise buildings including mastering the flow of work in very a congested logistic environment. Their knowledge of code and best practice makes Arctic a top choice for builders undertaking these projects.
To say the least, these projects represent “tight quarters”. Arctic takes pride in our ability to plan, to the smallest detail, the delivery of these types of facilities. We utilize Lean manufacturing and construction principles to minimize waste, rework and interference with the work of others.

PRE-PLANNING AND PRE-ASSEMBLY ALLOW FOR A MODULAR PROJECT
High-rise buildings, whether the end use is residential office, hospitality, or a combination—mixed use—often contain a tremendous amount of repeat activities and components. From our experience with dozens of high-rise buildings, we have learned the value of breaking the job down into any number of repeatable “kits”. By pre-assembling systems off-site and gaining the advantage of learning curves, we find that our efficiency goes up as we go higher in the building, which is counter-intuitive but clearly demonstrates the value of focusing on repeatability.
