CLOSED-Green Lake Community Center and Pool Redevelopment RFQ # PARKS-93019

City of Seattle Request for Consultant Services

Project Title:  Green Lake Community Center Improvements

RFQ Due Date: 11/8/2019, 5:00 PM (Pacific)

Scope of Work: Seattle Parks and Recreation is seeking a qualified consultant team to provide professional services to design a new Green Lake Community Center and Pool. The existing community center and pool is located on the East Shore of Green Lake in Seattle, Washington. The center is one of twenty-six community centers in the city.  It is one of several public amenities located within the park, and is open to the public year-round for program related and drop-in recreational use. The center is part of a group of activities clustered at the east end of the lake that all share a mid-sized parking lot.

The community center was constructed in 1928 and the pool was added in 1955. Renovations have occurred over time, the most recent boiler replacement and roof repairs were made in 2018/2019 to extend the life of the building another ten years. The community center and pool need to be demolished and reconstructed to better serve the needs of both the immediate neighborhood and the broader city as well.

The first phase of the project will be to undertake an assessment of the existing site and also consider other potential sites around Green Lake to answer several questions including where is the best location to construct a new community center; i.e., should it be constructed in its current location or is there another site or sites where a community center could better serve the community; what are the strengths and weaknesses of each location including constructability, access to the community center and relationship to other amenities around the lake; should the community center and pool continue to be located in one building or should there be two buildings in separate locations and what are the strengths and weaknesses of one vs. two buildings. This analysis will include several interactions with the public and ultimately a recommendation to Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) Senior Management and the public as to the best location for the new community center and whether or not the community center and pool should be co-located as they are today.

Once the decision on site and co-location has been made, the selected design team will be expected to prepare a conceptual plan and rough order of magnitude cost estimate based on the concept. That will complete the first phase of the contract. SPR reserves the right to continue on with the selected design team into schematic design and through construction administration or issue a subsequent RFQ for those services. SPR is also considering whether to undertake the project using our typical design bid build procurement procedure or whether to add the services of a general contractor and use the General Contractor Construction Management procurement process to undertake the design and construction of the new community center and pool. The chosen design team will be part of that decision making process so must have been part of a GGCM process in the recent past..
