The old Seaholm Power Plant had been dormant a long time—until now. This historical building, located near Lady Bird Lake in the heart of downtown Austin, Texas, was about to get a second life as part of an exciting mixed-use redevelopment.
The Seaholm Power Plant Redevelopment project called for the renovation of the landmark Seaholm Power Plant, construction of a new high-rise multi-family residence, development of a new office building, and creation of a three-story underground parking garage connected to the plant and office building. Our engineering experts worked collaboratively with the project’s architectural design team on the site’s development; handled the municipal permitting; and provided public roadway, water quality, and utility infrastructure designs. While working on these designs, the team also took extra care to maintain the power plant’s historic features through a design review process involving the Texas Historical Commission and City of Austin.
With our team’s support and infrastructure and design work, our client was able to preserve the past in the present, and more importantly, create a thriving place for the community to enjoy well into the future.
