RICHLAND, Wash. -- The Wine Science Center Development Authority has selected three teams to compete for the contract to design and build a research and teaching facility at Washington Tri-Cities in Richland.
The finalist firms were chosen as the three most responsive finalists to the Request For Qualifications issued in early January. They are Lydig Construction Co. with ALSC Architects, of Spokane; Hoffman Construction with Olson Kundig Architects, of Seattle and BNBuilders with Mithun, of Seattle.
Each contractor will submit formal and innovative design, construction ideas and cost proposals to construct for the 35,000-square-foot Wine Science Center.
The Design-Builder will be chosen in late April, with design work to begin immediately.
Construction is expected to begin in late September 2013, with the building completed in fall 2014.
The site is at the corner of George Washington Way and University Drive in Richland.
