what we do

Alternative Delivery

Delivering quality projects collaboratively

Changes in customer expectations and limitations of available owner resources are creating demand for better, faster, and cheaper ways to deliver projects including design-build, general contractor/construction manager (GC/CM), and public-private partnerships. Each of these alternatives is based on an integrated team philosophy. Parametrix is ideally suited for these efforts, given our collaborative nature and reputation of teamwork. Our staff are involved in professional organizations developing improved methods of project delivery and have served on the State of Washington’s Capital Project Advisory Review Board’s Project Review Committee and the task force that developed heavy civil GC/CM legislation. We help clients analyze various delivery methods, determine the most appropriate fit for each project, and manage the procurement and delivery process.

Parametrix is serving as the GC/CM procurement manager and project advisor for multiple school facility projects. Three facilities, McLoughlin Middle School, Marshall Elementary School, and Propstra Aquatic Center, are co-located on a single, 41 ½-acre site. All three facilities will remain occupied and operational during construction. New schools will be constructed on the site to replace McLoughlin Middle and Marshall Elementary School. McLoughlin Middle School will be demolished, and the existing Marshall Elementary facility will be modernized to house the Lieser K-12 program.
