Packet A - METHOW VALLEY STATE AIRPORT HELIPAD WASHINGTON STATE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION
1. Qualifications/Expertise of Firms on Team
Century West Engineering Corporation (Century West) is excited for the opportunity to assist the Washington State Department
of Transportation (WSDOT) with completing additional improvements at the Methow Valley State Airport (Methow). We
understand the significant role that the airport serves as a base for wildland firefighting activities. Based on our understanding
of the seasonal needs to support helicopters used for firefighting activities developed while completing the Airport Layout
Plan (ALP), we included three helicopter parking positions on the plan. Since the ALP was completed, our engineering team
completed the runway lighting, runway safety area (RSA) grading, and fencing project at Methow Valley State Airport. We have
also more recently designed several helicopter facilities at other airports including a large helicopter complex at the Bend
Municipal Airport in Oregon.
With our knowledge and history of planning experience at Methow, experience designing helicopter facilities, excellent working
relationship with Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Seattle Airports District Office (ADO) staff, and proximity from our Bothell
office, we are uniquely qualified to complete the design for these important helicopter facilities on the aggressive timeline
required to satisfy FAA funding requirements. Following the outline identified in the request for qualifications (RFQ), we have
prepared the following statement of our qualifications to deliver the 2019 Methow Valley State Airport Helipad Project.

                          was required to quantify site characteristics and impacts. ESA assisted Century West with
                          preparation of environmental documentation for construction of the helipad. Findings

                          (USACE) to remove jurisdictional claim over this artificially created irrigation wetland. This joint

                           closure, as well as undertaking an EA for the other airfield improvements anticipated in the near
                           term. We initiated the FAA form 7480 process for closing of the runway, designed the pavement
                           break, and supported the County’s construction implementation. Century West implemented
                           a demolition approach to retain pulverized materials on-site to use on the future runway and
                           taxiway improvements anticipated in the EA. These measures are anticipated to provide cost
                           savings on the future development projects. As a subconsultant to Century West, HWA is
                           providing pavement and geotechnical engineering, inspection, and materials testing.

                            Prefield research revealed the project area lies in an area that has a high risk for encountering
 SIMILARITIES TO METHOW cultural resources. Plateau archaeologists conducted a pedestrian survey and monitored
 VALLEY HELIPAD PROJECT: the excavation of four geotechnical boreholes at depths that ranged from 5 to15 feet. The
 • Alternatives Development soil core samples were examined for the presence or absence of cultural materials and
                            potential features. The pedestrian survey covered the entire area of potential affect (APE) and
                            geotechnical bores were distributed throughout. No precontact or historic-era cultural materials
                            or features were observed during the pedestrian survey and geotechnical boring. Plateau
                            recommended in the report that no historic properties would be affected by the project.

2. C. Project Management Capabilities
The following project examples demonstrate Greg’s ability to manage project schedule, scope of work/scope creep, budget
issues, and changes that arise throughout the life of a project.
 BREMERTON NATIONAL AIRPORT, AIRFIELD ELECTRICAL IMPROVEMENTS; BREMERTON, WA
 Century West provided the design services for the airfield wide lighting, signage, and navigational aide improvements
 project. The existing high-intensity runway (HIRL) and medium intensity taxiway (MITL) lighting, various airfield signs, select
 NAVAIDs, and other electrical system components are experiencing increasing operational/maintenance issues and are in
 need of replacement and upgrading. This project consists of replacing these airfield systems, equipment, and associated
 infrastructure. In addition to this project, Century West has been assisting the Port with FAA coordination for development
 within the Airports Industrial Park. Century West is also currently providing design services for site development of a new
 hangar complex. The design of the project took place throughout 2018 and the project was initially bid in Spring 2019.
 After the job was bid, the FAA released guidance allowing the use of LED for HIRL systems, previously not allowed. The Port
 had a strong desire to pursue the use of LED for the HIRL system. As a result, Greg was able to develop a schedule that
 enabled the Port to use the existing budget FAA had allocated for the project and allowed Port to pursue the LED HIRL
 option. The project rebid is scheduled for February 2020, and construction is anticipated in Summer 2020 with construction
 administration services provided by Century West.

FLORENCE MUNICIPAL AIRPORT, ELECTRICAL PROJECT; FLORENCE, OR
 The Florence Municipal Airport had on-going maintenance issues with their existing electrical system and desired to upgrade
 the Airport’s electrical capabilities to match what was depicted in the ALP. The existing Medium Intensity Runway Lighting
 (MIRL) system and Runway 33 PAPI was constructed in the 1980s and had reached the end of their useful lives. The Runway
 33 PAPI no longer met FAA siting criteria and needed relocating. The Airport desired to add a PAPI to Runway 15 and runway
 end identifier lights (REIL) to each runway end as a part of the project. Additionally, the Airport pavement inspection report
 identified the need for pavement maintenance repairs including crack sealing and a slurry seal of the entire Runway 15-33
 and parallel Taxiway A.
 Century West, under contract with the City of Florence and using FAA AIP funds and a Critical Oregon Aviation Relief (COAR)
 grant from the Oregon Department of Aviation (ODA), addressed all components of pavement maintenance and lighting
 improvements during project design in spring 2018. The project was on an accelerated timeline to open grants due to
 FAA funding constraints. Greg was able to navigate the accelerated timeline, and deliver the final plans to meet FAA
 expectations.
 The project was bid in July 2018, and due to a competitive bidding market, bids came in higher than anticipated. Due to
 other pavement maintenance activities at the Airport, the City elected to remove pavement maintenance items from the scope
 of work and focus on the electrical improvements; however, there was still a funding shortfall to construct all of the electrical
 items. Led by Greg, Century West was able to clearly delineate the electrical items and pavement maintenance items in
 the scope of work for the contractors to bid on the job, making it easier to determine a prime contractor.
 Although bids for the project came in higher than estimated, Greg worked with the contractor on this change to develop
 an alternative that included directional boring in lieu of in-pavement trenching in select locations that resulted in a cost
 savings to the project. As a result, the City was able to fund all of the electrical improvements due to Century West’s work
 with the contractor and FAA.
 AUBURN MUNICIPAL AIRPORT, RUNWAY 16-34 EXTENSION FINAL DESIGN; AUBURN, WA
 Century West assisted the City of Auburn in their efforts to extend Runway 16-34, the Airport’s sole runway. Century West’s
 role began during the Airport Master Plan that was completed in 2015 and identified a need for a runway extension on both
 runway ends. Being constrained in an urban environment, the Airport would have to use declared distances to maintain the
 existing runway threshold locations. Greg managed the EA for the runway extension in 2017; however, the FAA required
 additional documentation to support the runway extension. Through an additional planning exercise, Greg and the Century
 West team made a case to the FAA that justified the use of declared distances on the runway and successfully received
 project approval from the FAA to begin design. The design of the project took place in 2019 and bid by summer 2019.
 Portions of the project were separated into various bid alternates to be awarded based on available funding. The project was
 designed on an accelerated timeline to meet FAA funding deadlines and is scheduled for construction in 2020.
