American Civil Constructors West Coast Inc. will help rebuild Coast Guard Pier 36

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D-Wash) today announced that American Civil Constructors West Coast, Inc., a Seattle-based company, has been awarded a $9,570,737 contract to rebuild the Coast Guard’s Pier 36 in Seattle.

The nearly $9.6 million contract is part of the $10 million Senator Murray secured to rebuild the Coast Guard’s Integrated Support Center (ISC) at Pier 36 in the fiscal year 2002 Transportation Appropriations bill.

“I am pleased to announce this contract for American Civil Constructors,” Senator Murray said. “This contract allows us to move forward with a project that will enable the men and women of the Coast Guard to carry out their critical missions more and effectively, while providing good-paying jobs for our region.”

The Coast Guard is currently in the process of repairing and rebuilding the Coast Guard’s Integrated Support Center at Pier 36. The facilities are outdated and in disrepair due to damage sustained in the Nisqually Earthquake in February 2001.

The new 29,100 square foot concrete pier will replace the current wooden structure. The new pier will restore waterfront readiness by enabling heavy trucks and cranes to drive onto it to repair and re-provision Coast Guard cutters. It will also allow improved vessel movement of larger Coast Guard vessels, like polar icebreakers, in and out of the facility.

Murray secured $10 million in the Fiscal Year 2002 Transportation Appropriations bill, and $3.1 million in the FY 2002 Supplemental Appropriations bill for the project.

The award was made on a competitive bid.
