City To Award Fire Station Design-Build Contract

The Sacramento City Council has on its agenda this week an item that will move plans for a new North Natomas fire station one step closer to completion.

Among the council’s “consent” items is a resolution that would authorize a design-build contract with Unger Construction, Inc. for the North Natomas Fire Station No. 43 project, not to exceed $5.3 million. The project budget includes all design services, administration, fees, permits, construction, furniture fixtures and all equipment necessary to provide a fully functional and operating facility.

The city decided to suspend competitive bidding for the project in favor of the design-build model to ensure the station would be complete by summer 2011. The station will provide offices and support services for 12 employees plus a three-bay apparatus area to house a fire truck, engine and ambulance.

Unger Construction, Inc.’s bid was one of 12 submitted. It was selected as the most qualified design-build team to complete the work. Click here for more information.
