NEWTech Skill Center
NEWTECH Skill Center, Phase I - Addition has been selected to use the GC/CM construction process. This process is an alternative public works construction process, in lieu of the traditional design-bid-build construction approach. Spokane Public Schools was given "agency approval" for this alternative process by the Capital Projects Advisory Review Board's (CPARB) Project Review Committee in May, 2013. NEWTECH Skill Center, Phase I - Addition was chosen as the second GC/CM project under this authorization due to the complexity of its digital and medical programs and the site being occupied and operating during construction.
