KING COUNTY SWITCHES CONTRACTORS TO REPAIR KINGDOME
Published September 15, 1994
King County officials switched contractors for the Kingdome repair project yesterday. Seattle's Pacific Components Inc. is being replaced by MN-based M.A. Mortenson Co., which already leads $246.4M in county contracts. Pacific Components President Don Mar was "disappointed" to lose the $32.5M project but said his company did not have the "bonding capacity" for a project of this size. Kingdome repair project spokesperson Kathy Bunnell Johnson said the general contractor was switched because of a "change in the scope of the work and an earlier deadline." Bids were also opened yesterday for the roof resurfacing portion of the project and four companies are being considered in the next few days (George Foster, SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER, 9/15). NCAA PASSES THROUGH: NCAA men's championship director Bill Hancock announced that plans for the Final Four at the Kingdome remain on schedule for next April following a tour of the dome Tuesday (Bill Knight, POST-INTELLIGENCER, 9/14).
