As part of site preparation for mixed use development, the Port of Kalama Board of Commissioners awards contract to Scarsella Brothers Inc.
KALAMA, WASHINGTON (PRWEB) JANUARY 21, 2016

The Port of Kalama Board of Commissioners has awarded a $1.1 million contract for the site preloading and ground improvement of the Spencer Creek Business Park. The contract goes to family-owned Scarsella Brothers Inc., a heavy civil construction company based in Seattle.

Preliminary work at Spencer Creek Business Park will include moving 250,000 cubic yards of sand from the North Port to the business park for filling, grading and compressing soil to make way for new commercial development. The site preload contract requires Scarsella Brothers to supply all labor, materials, tools, equipment, permits, testing, and project supervision. The project is scheduled to begin immediately and is expected to be complete by spring of 2016. General business activity at the Port will not be interrupted during this time.

The Port of Kalama will begin development of the 70-acre Spencer Creek Business Park, located north of Kalama River Road right off of Interstate 5. The facility will support a mix of light industrial, office, commercial and retail uses including:

  • Light industrial
  • Commercial/retail
  • Hotel
  • Convenience store
  • Dining

While East Port will be built out over many years, business park construction and operational activities are projected to support more than 1,000 jobs and millions of dollars in new local economic activity.
