WSDOT picks Imco to build $48M Mukilteo ferry building, promenade

By BENJAMIN MINNICK, Daily Journal of Commerce Construction Editor

Crews from Imco General Construction will return next spring to Mukilteo, where the state Department of Transportation is building a $167 million replacement ferry terminal. Imco recently was awarded a $47.95 million contract to build the upland elements that include the passenger building, promenade and toll plaza. The Ferndale-based contractor last year was awarded a $2.26 million contract to install a deep water outfall for stormwater that it finished over the summer. On the latest contract, Imco beat Interwest Construction of Burlington ($51.52 million) and Contrack Watts Construction of Gig Harbor ($60.64 million). The engineer's estimate was $42.18 million, according to DJC records.

WSDOT broke the contract into two parts — separating upland elements from remaining marine structures — after rejecting five bids this summer that were substantially above the estimates. The engineer's estimate then was $56.98 million and Imco was the low bidder at $69.8 million for the base project. WSDOT expects to seek bids for the remaining marine structures early next year. That will include items such as an overhead pedestrian walkway, vehicle transfer span and dolphins.

A WSDOT spokeswoman said the agency has about $20 million left over from the contract split, and will seek more funding from the Legislature, though the amount has not been determined. The new terminal will be near Mukilteo Sounder Station, about one third of a mile east of the old ferry dock. There will be four toll booths, a transit center, and space for passengers, maintenance crews and supervisors. Separate loading systems for pedestrians and vehicles are planned.

LMN Architects designed the two-story passenger building, which will have elements of a longhouse in a 30-by-100-foot footprint. The exterior will be cedar. LMN worked with the Coast Salish tribes on the design, as well as energy and water conservation measures. The roof will be covered with solar panels that will power the terminal for six months of the year. Cross-laminated timber will be used for the roof canopy. Other green elements include natural ventilation, rainwater harvesting and stormwater treatment through previous concrete in the vehicle holding area.

 

Orion Marine Construction over the summer finished the terminal's $4.65 million trestle and foundation, which will support the passenger building, vehicle loading ramp and overhead pedestrian loading facilities. Crews installed nearly 200 in-water piles to strengthen the soil for earthquakes; about 55 piles support the passenger building foundation. Imco's new contract includes demolishing the 60-year-old existing terminal, which has outdated components and a poor layout that leads to conflicts between cars and passengers.

WSDOT will open the new terminal in fall 2020 and then remove the old terminal. In April, the DJC reported the team as: KPFF Consulting Engineers, prime consultant and designer for the building structure and the site's stormwater system; FSi Consulting Engineers, mechanical and plumbing; Jacobs, civil and electrical; Dark Light Design, lighting; HBB Landscape Architecture, landscape; Ergosynch, systems integration; ProDims LLC, cost estimate; Tiscareno Associates, architecture support; The Greenbusch Group, vertical transportation; CM Design Group, stormwater; and Hart Crowser, geotechnical.

WSDOT to seek bids on Mukilteo terminal

By BENJAMIN MINNICK, Daily Journal of Commerce Construction Editor

Next week WSDOT expects to advertise a contract for the cornerstone piece of the new $167 million ferry terminal in Mukilteo: the main terminal, which is estimated to cost up to $60 million. The ad is slated for Monday, and bids could be opened about six weeks later. WSDOT issued an advance notice of the project that ran April 13 in the DJC. The 525-day contract includes demolition of the old terminal as well as buildings, steel pilings, concrete work, retaining walls and paving. A pre-bid meeting and walk-through will be held at 10 a.m. Friday at the project engineer's office in Everett.

The new terminal will be near the Mukilteo Sounder Station, about one third of a mile east of the old ferry dock. There will be four toll booths, a transit center, and space for passengers, maintenance crews and supervisors. Separate loading systems for pedestrians and vehicles are planned.

Orion Marine Construction last year won a $4.65 million contract to build the terminal's trestle and bridge seat. Crews installed nearly 200 in-water piles during a six-month fish window that ended on Feb. 15. Most of those piles will strengthen the soil during earthquakes; 55 will support the new two-story passenger terminal.

Next, Orion will pour the concrete bridge seat, and should be finished with all of its work in August. Another contract, for about $2.26 million, was issued last year to Imco Construction to install a deep outfall for stormwater. Imco should finish its work in June. WSDOT recently received another $7.9 million from the Legislature following design completion. That money covers additional solar panels and higher construction costs. Original plans called for putting solar panels on about 25 percent of the roof. Now the roof will be completely covered, creating enough energy to power the terminal for six months of the year.
 

The terminal is expected to open in spring 2020 — a delay from the original date of December 2019. A WSDOT Ferries Division spokesperson said the upcoming main terminal contract was delayed primarily for “internal approvals” and for the Legislature to approve the additional funding.

LMN Architects designed the main terminal, which is 100 by 30 feet. LMN's website says the architect worked with the Coast Salish tribes on energy and water conservation measures as well as the design, which includes elements of a longhouse and a large gathering room for passengers.

KPFF Consulting Engineers is the prime consultant, and is designing the building's structure and the site's stormwater system.

Here's the rest of the team: FSi Consulting Engineers, mechanical and plumbing; Jacobs, civil and electrical; dark|light design, lighting; HBB Landscape Architecture, landscape; Ergosynch, systems; ProDims LLC, cost estimate; Tiscareno Associates, architecture support; The Greenbusch Group, vertical transportation; CM Design Group, stormwater; and Hart Crowser, geotechnical.

Washington State Ferries says the Mukilteo-Clinton run carries about 2 million vehicles and 4 million passengers yearly, making it one of the busiest in the system.
