Construction is expected to start June 27 on Fire Station 20 at 2800 15th Ave. W. in Seattle’s Interbay neighborhood.
The city is seeking construction bids by May 22, according to a notice in the April 24 DJC.
A pre-bid meeting will be held at the project site at 1 p.m. May 2.
Schacht Aslani Architects designed the building.
Other team members are: Nakano Associates, landscape architect; The Robinson Co., cost estimator; Coughlin Porter Lundeen, civil engineer; Swenson Say Faget, structural engineer; Travis Fitzmaurice, electrical engineer; and Hargis Engineers, mechanical.
Construction is expected to cost $6 million.
The 10,220-square-foot building will have two apparatus bays.
There will also be a kitchen/dining room, dayroom, and training rooms in a steel-framed second story that will cantilever toward Fifteenth Avenue West.
Concrete and masonry walls will retain an adjacent hillside and create terraces that will be planted. There will also be green space and a sculpture by artist Rob Ley.
The project is targeting LEED platinum.
Sustainable features include green roofs; low-flow plumbing fixtures; a greywater system; a rooftop solar array; drought-tolerant landscaping; ground source heat pumps; a garden that filters water before it enters the stormwater system; a flip-dot signboard to give the public real-time information on solar energy generation, and water and carbon savings; a system to recover heat exhausted from the building; and an energy management and control system.
Funding comes from Seattle’s Fire Facilities and Emergency Response levy program.
