Swinerton Absher VA Puget Sound Health Care System
The scope includes the construction of a new multi-story Mental Health and Research (MHR) building of approximately 203,000 GSF. The new multi-story building incorporates 68,000 GSF of space for Mental Health Services with 111,000 GSF dedicated to Research; and 20,000 GSF for administrative support space. This Phase II work will include extension of major utilities from the campus Energy Center to the new building, extensive civil grading and retaining-wall work, sidewalks and plaza flat work. Work will also include walkways, and paving and road work from the campus entry drive through the new patient drop off areas in front of the new facility as shown in the drawings. Demolition of approximately 63,000 GSF of existing building structures is also a part of the project and is scheduled to occur at or near the completion of the new MHR building. The demolition portion of the project shall be set-aside by the General Contractor for a Service-disabled Veteran-owned Small Business (SDVOSB) or Veteran-owned Small Business (VOSB) subcontractor that is verified as eligible in the Vendor Information Pages database (refer to www.va.gov/osdbu). The project is envisioned to be certified LEED silver or better upon completion of construction.

One thousand car Parking Garage) that will be in progress adjacent to the site of the new MHR building at the time of award.
All work shall be accomplished in compliance with applicable local, state and federal codes, and VA specification and drawings.
