The Rainier Tower is a prominent addition to Ruston, Washington's waterfront resort-inspired mixed-use development. Covering approximately 584,000 square feet, the eight-story residential building features an expansive lobby, 434 parking stalls and 206 premium condominium units featuring sweeping views of the Puget Sound.

To maximize efficiency, the project team employed light-gauge steel construction for the Rainier Tower. Unlike wood, this high-quality system is fire resistant and free of vertical shrinkage. Concrete-filled dovetail decking and pre-panelized cold-formed-steel panels, eliminated the need for a joist system, thereby reducing the floor-to-floor height of the structure.

Meanwhile, special reinforced concrete shear walls extend to the roof level providing lateral load resistance without the need for strap bracing, Sure-Board, or hold-downs.
