Northeast Redevelopment Area (NERA)

Location: Burien, WA
Client: City of Burien

Otak has provided professional services beginning with the early planning stages for this project to redevelop 162 acres of land blighted by construction of the third runway at Sea-Tac International Airport. Otak recently designed and is providing full construction management services for the first capital project to reach the implementation stage, which includes four stormwater infiltration facilities, 2,700 feet of pathway and trailhead, and a new fish-passable culvert. Our construction management work began with bid assistance and review of bidders’ qualifications, and continues with construction observation and documentation, review of submittals and requests for information, review of certified payrolls and apprenticeship program compliance, conducting weekly meetings, managing all correspondence with the contractor, preparation of cost estimates, review of change requests, and construction staking. Otak also managed testing services through subconsultants. The project is under construction and on target to finish on time and under budget.
