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.

Wheeler Site Development
​Olympia, Washington
Client: ​​Wright Runstad & Company

This new complex on the Washington State Capitol Campus houses the Departments of Information Services and Enterprise Services. The project was accomplished through a public-private partnership. Wright Runstad manages the property, which was the first major new construction on the Capitol Campus in two decades. The project provides a new entrance and infrastructure for the East Campus.

Parametrix provided site and infrastructure design, permitting, landscape design, surveying, and public involvement. The office complex offers a conference center with audio visual capabilities, a training center, bicycle parking and showering facility, and a retail restaurant/cafeteria concept. It is set within a landscaped environment reminiscent of the Olmstead design used on the remainder of the campus. The project was designed to LEED Platinum standards.
