‘Apparent low bidder’ for Roxhill skatepark: West Seattle’s Grindline

Following up on our report from last month, we checked today with Seattle Parks‘ project manager Kelly Davidson, and she says that West Seattle-based Grindline is the “apparent low bidder” for the Roxhill Skatepark (skatespot)/play area project (the playground equipment itself will be installed by community volunteers after the site is prepped). There were three other bidders but in reviewing the proposals, the Contracting Department, Davidson says, deemed the other three “unresponsive.” Grindline (whose bid was $572K, about $30K over the estimate) designed and built Delridge Skatepark, which opened last September; construction at Roxhill is expected to start next month.

    Does “Apparent low bidder” mean that a good payoff could still get me the contract?
