General Contractor / Construction Manager Services for Van Asselt School Addition and Asa Mercer International Middle School Replacement


Due Date: March 5, 2020 at 10:00 a.m.


The Seattle School District No. 1 (District) is soliciting qualifications and proposals from experienced firms for pre-construction and construction services for two projects: Van Asselt School Addition and Asa Mercer International Middle School Replacement (the Projects).  The District intends to award a contract utilizing the General Contractor/Construction Manager (GC/CM) competitive alternative construction procurement process authorized under the Revised Code of Washington, Chapter 39.10. The District obtained project approval from the Washington State CPARB PRC to utilize the GC/CM delivery method for these Projects. The District intends to select a single GC/CM firm for both projects under this procurement. 

Project #1: Van Asselt School Addition is located at 7201 Beacon Ave. S., Seattle, WA 98108, on a 9.5-acre site. The project will construct a new 30-classroom and gymnasium addition at the Van Asselt School site. The District intends to use this site as an interim school location as it modernizes or replaces various school facilities in southeast Seattle, including Asa Mercer International Middle School. 

Project #2: Asa Mercer International Middle School Replacement is located at 1600 S. Columbian Way, Seattle, WA 98108, on an 8.39-acre site. The project will construct a new multi-story middle school of approximately 176,000 sq. ft. to provide permanent space for up to 1,000 students grades 6-8. Students will be located off-site at the Van Asselt facility during the period of construction. 

A pre-proposal conference is scheduled for February 18, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. at the Van Asselt site, currently occupied by Wing Luke Elementary School, located at 7201 Beacon Ave S, Seattle, WA 98108. Please check in at the main office for sign-in and location of meeting. Site visits will occur immediately thereafter beginning at Van Asselt and then traveling to Mercer Middle School, located at 1600 S. Columbian Way, Seattle, WA 98108.
