Auburn Complex Property Severance, General Services Administration

Auburn, Washington

Based on significant research and investigation regarding the Auburn property utilities, including analysis of system condition and remaining useful life, cost estimating, and prioritization of potential upgrades to the systems, Akana provided the additional verification and detailed project development documentation required to consolidate all the information into a concise scope of work for a future Design-Build contract. Akana first developed the project by verifying needs and further developing scope, cost estimates and implementation plans, including a review of existing relevant documentation, on-site investigations, preparation of a needs assessment report that outlines project needs and identifies unique situations/risks that may impact project implementation, and develop schematic options to meet the needs assessment. Then, based on the preferred option, performance criteria and specifications were prepared that allows the GSA to contract for work using a design-build methodology.
