We’ve selected Olympia-based FORMA Construction Company to be our General Contractor/Construction Manager (GCCM) to build the first two of our three new elementary schools.

On September 11, a committee from the district interviewed two finalists from the bidding process: FORMA and Emerick Construction. During the interview process, both companies gave presentations, reviewed a case study, and went through a question and answer session. FORMA was selected based on top scores from the interview process, having numerous GCCM jobs in Western Washington, and providing the best bid proposal.

FORMA’s recent GCCM work building public schools includes projects in Federal Way, Centralia, Bainbridge Island, Edmonds, and Anacortes School Districts.  Also of note, FORMA has a SW Washington work crew that will be employed for Kelso’s projects.]

Our school board approved the GCCM selection at their September 24 meeting.
