The Port of Bellingham developed a 57,000 sq foot facility for the marine trades and commerce on the Bellingham Waterfront. The facility is an insulated metal structure with numerous high bay doors for boat manufacturing and transport to other facilities. All American Marine moved to this facility and was able to expand its manufacturing of aluminum boats.
GeoTest provided air barrier testing to confirm conformance with Washington State’s Energy Code requirements. A structure of this size and configuration presents a challenge for the sealing and preparation of the high bay door openings for accurate air barrier testing. Numerous high power 8,000 CFM fans were utilized to accommodate the large building volume and the facility met the required air leakage criteria.
