Shoreline Water District capitalizes on favorable construction climate and low bond financing to address three critical capital improvement projects
Shoreline Water District, a special purpose district not affiliated with the City of Shoreline, is embarking on three critical capital improvement projects over the next 14 months in order to strategically capitalize on the current favorable construction market, and historic low bond financing interest rates. These projects are as follows:
Repair and Remodel of Existing Administrative Offices
Shoreline Water District’s existing 4,538 square feet headquarters building will undergo a 2,250 square feet expansion to provide additional office space, meeting rooms, employee lunch room, and public bathrooms. The building’s flat roof will be replaced with a 20-year energy efficient, PVC single ply membrane roof; all infrastructure will be upgraded including mechanical, electrical, structural, HVAC and plumbing systems; and the building will receive new energy efficient windows and insulation. Site work will include new curbs, gutters and sidewalks along NE 177th Street, parking lot resurfacing, security fencing, and landscaping. District operations will be temporarily relocated during construction.

Estimated Construction Cost: $2 million
Estimated Bidding Schedule: Bid Opening Scheduled for May 17, 2012
Existing Maintenance Facility
Currently in the early planning stage, this project will entail extensive facility updates and possible expansion of an existing 2,862 square foot Maintenance Facility, with an estimated two year duration for design and construction.

New Pump Station
Shoreline Water District’s third capital improvement project will be the construction of a new Pump Station. When complete in December 2013, the new station will provide access to 1.9 million gallons of dead storage in an existing 3.7 million gallon water reservoir, in order to increase pumping capacity to meet the 4,000 gallon per minute Fire Flow requirement. The scope of work also includes related pressure zone reconfigurations.
