OCI worked with Walker Macy to design a new City of Seattle park on Portage Bay that will open in 2018. OCI engineers provided civil engineering for the design that includes a kayak storage area, restrooms, terraced seating areas, piers, and beach access. OCI was excited to have the opportunity to work with the design team for the transformation of the Bryant Building site that has unique history starting with the Native American usage, to industrial maritime usage, to a UW police station, and to the new park setting that will incorporate historical elements. With construction finished, the park opened in the fall of 2020. Fritz Hedges Waterway Park was recognized in March 2021 by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Seattle Section as a Local Outstanding Engineering Achievement (LOCEA).
