Otak joined in the community-wide celebration on November 7th to mark the grand opening of the new Bothell City Hall. Serving as a community gathering place at the center of the City of Bothell’s municipal campus, this project is part of the first phase of the City’s ambitious downtown revitalization plan. In fitting fashion, a live band kicked off the grand opening for the building last Saturday.

Otak served as the lead civil engineering consultant on the project, working closely with The Miller Hull Partnership, GLY Construction, Vulcan Real Estate, and the City of Bothell. Otak was responsible for demolition, TESC, site layout, site grading, storm drainage, water and sanitary sewer utilities, parking/pavement, and franchise utility coordination. Additional project elements included frontage improvements along the entire City block, off-site utility extensions, and preparation of an early site demolition/preparation package to facilitate the aggressive construction schedule.

The new City Hall includes a 53,000 square foot, four-story office building with Council Chambers and community meeting spaces; a large plaza; and a 254-car parking garage. The garage is designed for shared parking with future development and will be used for public parking during evenings and on weekends. To model sustainability in the built environment, the new structure is designed to LEED Gold specifications and features a solar array, a living wall, and additional LEED-designed components.

Otak is honored to be a part of the City of Bothell’s downtown revitalization efforts and looks forward to working with the City on future projects. More information on the project can be found by clicking here.
