Genesee Combined Sewer Overflow Reduction Project - WMBE Inclusion Information

Hoffman Construction Company (Hoffman) is the General Contractor/Construction Manager (GC/CM) for the Genesee CSO Reduction project. This project will be constructed for Seattle Public Utilities (SPU). Hoffman will be seeking sealed Subcontractor bids for various portions of the work which will be competitively bid with public bid openings in accordance with RCW 39.10.380.

Project General Scope

The Genesee CSO Reduction Project is split into two separate sites situated on Lake Washington Boulevard near Seward Park in Seattle, WA. At each site Hoffman will construct a large underground concrete storage tank which, combined, will hold approximately 600,000 gallons of combined sewer overflow during major rain events. These tanks will temporarily hold these overflows and prevent them from entering Lake Washington. The project also calls for the construction of underground facility vaults to support the tanks, as well as some new underground piping upgrades and connections to the current SPU system.

Current project schedule has initial construction activities beginning in May 2013.

Project Status

Preconstruction efforts are underway for the Genesee CSO Reduction Project. Currently the project is in the 30% design phase. The project team has conducted a design and constructability review of the 30% documents and these review comments are being incorporated into the design. The design team, SPU and Hoffman are working together to generate 60% design documents by early August.

Upcoming Project Events

After 60% design documents are issued, Hoffman will hold a series of project open houses with firms interested in the project. The exact dates, times and locations will be posted to this website in the future.
