A unique feature of the Port of Seattle’s expanded International Arrivals Facility main terminal building at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport is the incorporation of 37 precast concrete shear walls along the west side of the structure. These walls are exposed to view, so a quality finish was essential. All walls were cast horizontally, with formed surfaces on one long side and the two radiused ends.
