Garco and ALSC Architects win Convention Center expansion job

— Garco Construction Co., of Spokane, was chosen by the Spokane Public Facilities Board as the general contractor to build a $41 million expansion of the Spokane Convention Center. Architectural work will be done by ALSC Architects of Spokane, which brought in a convention center design expert, LMN Architects of Seattle, as part of its team.

Garco and ALSC won the bid, beating three other teams which participated in the design-build competition, presenting concepts for the 90,000-square-foot expansion. ALSC's Jeff Warner said that the construction concepts presented to the PFD during the competition amounted to 30 percent of the design work needed on the project. The designs were based on criteria developed in a pre-planning process by the PFD, convention center experts and local interests in the convention center business.

The project also includes improvements and changes to the Spokane River shoreline next to the convention center. The total price of the expansion and shoreline improvements is $50 million. Expanded seating is also planed for the Spokane Arena.
