SAFE HAVEN TSUNAMI VERTICAL EVACUATION STRUCTURE, PHASE 1
The City invites proposals from qualified consulting engineers to provide engineering services, environmental permitting, and permitting support for Phase 1 of the proposed Safe Haven Tsunami Vertical Evacuation Structure project. The City intends to develop a first-of-its-kind in the U.S. vertical evacuation berm with the capacity to shelter in place approximately 850 persons for up to 12 hours. This berm must be designed to withstand both a nearby megathrust seismic event and the subsequent tsunami.

Registration is required in order to propose on this project. A request to be registered should be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, and “Safe Haven” should be placed in the subject line; you must provide a single valid point-of-contact to register. The City will notify registrants via e-mail of any addenda, and will also place registrants on the plan holder list, and update that list each week.
