Finalists chosen to build Wine Science Center

BY THE TRI-CITY HERALDFebruary 7, 2013 

Three teams of construction and architectural firms have been selected as finalists to build the Wine Science Center at Washington State University Tri-Cities in Richland.

Each team will submit proposals for the design, construction and estimated cost for the 35,000-square-foot building, according to a news release.

The winning team will be announced in late April by the Wine Science Center Development Authority, a partnership between the city of Richland, Port of Benton, WSU and others.

The three teams are Lydig Construction Co. with ALSC Architects of Spokane; Hoffman Construction with Olson Kundig Architects of Seattle; and BNBuilders with Mithun, also of Seattle.

More than $17 million has been pledged for the center's construction. The center will serve WSU's viticulture and enology program but also provide research for grape growers and winemakers in the Northwest.
