Tuesday, September 17, 2013

Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. has been awarded a contract from the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) for Construction Management Services on the Elliott Bay Seawall Project (EBSP) in Seattle, Wash. Officials estimate the construction value to be $300 million for Phase 1 of the project.

Under the terms of the contract, Jacobs is managing the construction of approximately 3,700 feet of new seawall infrastructure in an urban waterfront area that supports public recreation, tourism and commerce. Jacobs’ scope of work includes oversight, inspection, monitoring, coordination and documentation of the project.

The EBSP replaces the existing seawall with a structure that meets current safety and design standards by replacing deteriorated seawall structures that were constructed between 1916 and 1934. Phase 1 of the project, expected to begin in September 2013, replaces the most deteriorated sections of the central seawall. The City of Seattle is planning a second phase of work for the northern seawall as funding is available.

In making the announcement, Jacobs Group Vice President Kevin McMahon stated, “We look forward to leveraging our significant experience with large construction projects in urban environments to deliver the Elliott Bay Seawall Project, which is vitally important both in terms of public safety and as a foundation for the redevelopment of Seattle’s vibrant waterfront district.”
