- We have completed the National Environmental Protection Act construction engineering analysis and the construction risk analysis.
- We will be applying for a building permit in February 2013.
We will retrofit the Bainbridge Island ferry terminal building to enhance earthquake safety, upgrade the public restrooms, and replace many aging building components.
Why is WSDOT
rehabilitating the Bainbridge Island terminal building?
The existing terminal building was built in 1955 and does not meet current seismic design codes, other building codes and energy efficiency guidelines. The public restrooms are not large enough and do not meet American Disabilities Act (ADA) guidelines.
The End Result
The exterior walls of the terminal building will be stronger. The public restrooms will be larger and meet current codes. The building will have all new exterior windows and sliding doors, a new roof, a new electrical panel, new light fixtures, and a new heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit.
This project will improve safety during an earthquake by retrofitting the building to current design codes. The main public restrooms will be enlarged to provide more capacity and meet design codes and ADA guidelines. The new roof will eliminate leaks. The new electrical panel will increase reliability and reduce maintenance on the panel, as well as allow a potential vendor to lease space inside the building. The overall energy efficiency of the building will increase with more efficient lighting and windows.
