The Service Center complex is comprised of the Public Works, Motor Vehicles, Transit Operations, and elements of the Parks & Facilities departments. Redevelopment of the Service Center is necessary as all of the buildings on the site are at or near the end of their useful life.
Development of a dual-location Service Center replacement
The City’s consultant, Makers Architecture, identified and developed a long-term location for Public Works, an effort called the Everett Public Works Site Selection Study. The work concluded in December 2021, with the City Council’s acceptance of the site area relocation study and authorization for predesign activities.
Non-operational Public Works office staff, (approximately one third of Public Works staff), will relocate to the Everett Municipal Building (EMB) once tenant improvements are complete. Tenant improvements are anticipated to be complete in 2024-25.
EMB tenant improvements
Estimated cost: Early estimates for the tenant improvements project ranged from $25-$30M. The estimate will be updated when the City enters into contract with a General Contractor/Construction Manager. Improvements to the EMB will be paid by Utilities.
The City has selected a preferred site alternative at the Everett Point Industrial Center (EPIC), where Public Works already has a materials handling area and storage yard. The new Public Works operations and maintenance center will accommodate the remaining two thirds of Public Works Service Center staff.
Bridge design: Type, size and location (TS&L) study 2023; with bridge design following the TS&L study and construction to follow design as funding allows. Visit the EPIC Bridge webpage for more information.
Operations & Maintenance Center: Site investigations and due diligence are underway. Design and construction of the new facility is anticipated in the 2026-2032 timeframe.
Estimated cost* : $120 M - $180M
*It is too early in the planning phase of the new O&M center program for any detailed estimates.
