Magnuson Community Center Improvements RFQ

RFQ #PKS-092018

Seattle Parks and Recreation is seeking the services of a creative multi-disciplinary team to complete design and construction administration for tenant improvements and build-out of the south wing of the Magnuson Community Center (Building #47.) A build-out of the south wing has been on Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR)'s Asset Management Plan for several years but community input and the expected opening of Mercy Housing low-income housing across the street in 2019 has made expanding capacity at the community center a priority.

The building, dedicated in December 1941 for Naval Station Sand Point, today is within the Sand Point Naval Air Station Historic District. In 2002-2003 a renovation was completed that included a roof replacement, limited hazardous material remediation, seismic improvements, and improvements to the lobby, offices, and existing multi-purpose room but interior build-out of the south wing was not completed at that time. This project will include build out of three multi-purpose rooms, a kitchen, a men's and women's restrooms, a single-occupancy, all-gender restroom, as well as accessibility improvements to the parking lot, entrance and lobby.

The total project budget for this project is $2,650,000 and comes from a combination of Real Estate Excise Tax (REET), a grant from King County, and an appropriation from Washington State. A pre-design study was completed in 2017 and can be found at
