Elliott Bay Seawall Project on the Table

To ensure greater accountability, the City of Seattle announced the scope, schedule and deliverables for the external expert review process of the Elliott Bay Seawall Project this week.

Seeking a thorough analysis of the project, the City will utilize a panel of peer agency experts, such as public works directors and chief engineers, with broad experience in large-scale public works construction and in-water construction.

They will be supported in their examination by an expert consultant hired by the City.

These peer agency experts will be charged with reviewing the seawall project’s budget, contract, design and schedule, and will analyze in detail each of the four phases of the overall project (planning, design, contracting, and construction).

They will make recommendations for cost and risk reduction opportunities going forward, and provide lessons learned that can be applied to future large projects.

The process of selecting an expert consultant will be completed by early October and the peer agency experts will be selected by the end of October. The final findings are to be delivered to the City by the end of the year.
