[ARCHIVED] City Council Approves Contract for Two New Fire Stations

BOTHELL, WA – On Tuesday, November 12, Bothell City Council authorized a Progressive Design Build Agreement with BN Builders/Miller Hull Partnership to complete the voter-approved replacement of Fire Station 42, our Downtown Headquarters, and Fire Station 45 in Canyon Park.  

Progressive design build is an innovative method not traditionally used by city governments, but will help us complete the projects quickly and on budget. Only teams with prior design build experience were considered, ensuring the City was able to select the most qualified team in the industry for this particular project. 

BN Builders/Miller Hull were selected after a four-month vetting process coordinated by the project manager, OAC Services, and City staff from the Public Works and Fire Departments. The City received Statements of Qualifications from eight design-build teams and invited four to submit project proposals. These proposals were evaluated based on the ability to meet time and budget requirements, technical approach, design concept, and other factors. 

“I’m thrilled we have secured the outstanding design-build team of BN Builders/Miller Hull. I have full confidence that, together, we will design and build two fire stations that will provide long-term safe and efficient work spaces for our firefighters. The progressive design build model will allow us to complete these projects in a timely manner and within budget,” Bothell Fire Chief, Bruce Kroon shares. 

The project will be broken up into three phases. Each phase will have a set spending amount that will require approval from City Council. Phase 1A has begun and has an approved budget of just under $1.6 million. One of the first tasks for the design-build team is to analyze and determine the best locations for up to two fully-functional interim stations to house firefighters, vehicles, and equipment during demolition and construction of the permanent stations.  

Fire Stations 45 and 42 are expected to be constructed and “move-in” ready by early 2023. Both projects are fully funded by 2018 voter-approved bonds worth $35.5 million. 

“Bothell citizens were gracious enough to pass the Safe and Secure ballot measures to let us rebuild these two stations which are in dire need of repair. I’m really looking forward to moving this process forward,” said Councilmember Tom Agnew at the Tuesday meeting.
