Sehome Hill Communications Tower Replacement

Bid Date: 09/12/2017
Award Date: 12/4/17
Award to: Award Construction Inc.
Award Amount: $730,464.00
Engineers Estimate: $558,772.35
Project Overview: EK-0001 48B-2017
Replacement of the communications tower located in the Sehome Hill Arboretum. A new tower and shelter will be installed at the south end of the existing Arboretum parking lot. After all communications equipment is transferred to the new tower site, the existing tower will be decommissioned and removed. The tower at this site supports various critical communications facilities owned by several public entities, including Police, Fire, Public Works, Port of Bellingham, and Western Washington University. Telecommunication companies also lease antenna space on the tower and within the equipment shelter, providing cellular/wireless communications for local residents.
The existing communication tower has been evaluated, and due to equipment revisions and code criteria changes, further equipment modifications or additions cannot be performed on the existing structure. Various structural modifications have been performed over the life of the structure to increase structural capacity, and options for additional modification of the existing tower have been exhausted. A new tower will provide the needed space and capacity to safely house and support all existing equipment and provide for future expansion and communication needs into the future.
