Last Thursday was a significant moment for the T-Mobile Headquarters project team, as construction began for the first span of the skybridge connector between Building 2 and 3.
This entails a massive effort including building and raising roughly 81 tons of steel beams, in four phases, on top of scaffolding towers between two existing building façades at varying elevations. At its highest point, the skybridge will stand 66 feet in the air, and will measure 185 feet in length, making it one of the longer and more technical skybridges in the Bellevue area.
“This was a huge milestone, and I’m very proud of the project team for working through all of the mind-boggling details of engineering, design, logistics, and planning to get to this moment! Hats off to the Andersen Construction team, and their partners at Apex Steel and Snell Crane, for conducting a successful and safe hoisting operation!” says Liz Haeck, MGAC’s Project Manager for the skybridge connector.
This will be a game changer for T-Mobile employees who will now have a more accessible, seamless route between buildings, and the ability to more effectively connect with teammates across campus, all without having to step outside into the elements!
