North American Aquatic Design (NAAD) has been selected to provide design guidance and technical leadership with respect to the design of the pool and water-feature plumbing and mechanical systems. Over the past 20-years, NAAD’s principals have designed dozens of pools, water parks, and aquatic facilities and have exceptional expertise in creating unique water play environments that are operationally-friendly and provide ease-of-maintenance. NAAD’s experience includes recreational and competition pools, interactive water features, water slides, lazy rivers, splash pads, spraygrounds, wave pools, and other specialty aquatic play elements. Powell & Hinkle has been selected to provide mechanical, plumbing, and electrical engineering services, and have a unique expertise in the requirements of high-capacity aquatic and recreational facilities. The technical requirements of the site and building in an Aquatic support facility (bathroom, break room, concessions/food service,etc.) will vary considerably based upon capacity, temperature, moisture, time-of-year, and other factors. In all cases – whether the facility is at capacity or virtually empty – it is crucial that buildings perform appropriately and at maximum efficiency. This expertise is unique to this type of facility and is crucial in serving the needs of guests and staff. Powell & Hinkle is licensed and has current projects in Washington State. Local Expertise will be crucial in the successful execution of the project. ELM will rely on a local consultant team that is most familiar and qualified for the specific needs of the Family Aquatic Center project. We anticipate a Walla Wallabased consultant team to provide structural, environmental, geotechnical, survey, materials testing, hazardous materials abatement, permitting, and civil engineering expertise. ELM suggests working with the City to identify and select the most qualified local experts in these disciplines. The City will gain the greatest value will through ELM’s specialized Aquatic and Water Park expertise, partnered with a Walla Walla-based team of experts that is most familiar with the particulars of the site and local administrative and political process. 8

PROJECT UNDERSTANDING, APPROACH, AND SCHEDULE “...describe the tasks that must be accomplished to complete the project and a narrative description of how your team proposes to execute the tasks in the most cost effective way.” ELM follows a highly-structured and integrated work plan on each project, organized sequentially ensuring the appropriate opportunities for client input, consultant coordination, and construction cost review throughout all project phases. It is crucial that technical issues are identified and resolved prior to becoming problems during construction, requiring costly repairs or field-adjustments. Because of our extensive Aquatic and Water Plan experience, we understand the unique requirements and coordination demands of demolition and construction including: site access and circulation, building programming, building design/use/operation, slide tower design, pool plumbing, pool mechanical/filtration systems, stormwater/drainage, site lighting and power distribution, sound/speakers, landscape plantings, site furnishings, irrigation, paving, fencing, storage, maintenance, and other related improvements. ELM’s multi-disciplined approach practices site (landscape architecture) and building design disciplines (architecture) together, allowing continuous matter-of-course communication and coordination throughout the project. Much of the success or failure of any project is in “how you treat the edges”, and with ELM’s structure there are no-edges that go unresolved or design issues left to chance. For the Walla Walla Family Aquatic Center, ELM suggests the following tasks be completed in accordance with a clearly defined, sequentially-phased Scope of Work: Phase I – Programming/Data Collection & Research Task A – Data Collection/Base Sheet Set-up Task B - Programming & Stakeholder Engagement Task C – Project Research/Familiarity/Technical Understanding Phase II – Schematic Design Task A – Landscape Architectural Schematic Design Task B – Architectural Schematic Design Task C – Subconsultant Schematic Design Task D – Schematic Construction Cost Review Phase III– Design Development Task A – Landscape Architectural Design Development Task B – Architectural Design Development Task C – Subconsultant Design Development Task D – Outline Specifications Task D – Design Development Construction Cost Review Phase IV – Construction Documents Task A – Landscape Architectural Construction Documents Task B – Architectural Construction Documents Task C – Subconsultant Construction Documents Task D – Specifications/Project Manual Task E – Bid Submittal Phase V – Bid Assistance/Permitting Task A – Bid Assistance Task B - Permitting Phase VI – Construction Administration Task A – Construction Period Assistance Task B – Pay Application Requests/Administration Task C – Project Closeout 9

“...describe how the team plans to utilize local resources and how the team will collect or verify required data in a timely and cost conscious fashion.” Utilizing Local Resources ELM realizes this is a huge investment for the residents of Walla Walla, especially for a recreational facility in these challenging economic times. The Family Aquatics Center can be a big contributor to Walla Walla’s quality of life, and we know that the expectation to create a fantastic amenity and to maximize the value of this investment is very high. This is why ELM has formed the very best core team of design experts and specialists in the Aquatic and Water Play design industry – to serve the City and to bring unique talents that do not exist within the Walla Walla community. However, for this project to be successful it needs to be firmly grounded in the culture, and character of Walla Walla’s community and landscape. Beyond the core team of design experts, ELM will partner with local experts, engineers, and consultants – individuals and firms who understand the nuances of the site, the city, the process, and the values of the community. We will work with the City to identify the most capable local members of the project team including: surveyors, civil engineers, geotechnical consultants, environmental consultants, and others, and expect that those local experts will comprise the majority of our project team. ELM’s best work is a result of our collaborative culture. We look forward to immersing ourselves in Walla Walla, working directly with the city and community in an open and collegial way to find out what’s most important and to learn about their goals and objectives. At the same time, we will draw on the expertise and familiarity of local consultants and experts to collect and verify data in the most timely and costeffective manner and help galvanize the project’s local ownership and pride of authorship Ultimately, this project will belong to the citizens of Walla Walla – and we believe it will become one of the regions great social and recreational assets. We care for the legacy of our work in the community, feel a great obligation to help deliver the best project possible, and have assembled a team and structure designed to ensure the most positive outcome.

“...describe particular challenges which you foresee this project presenting and your approach for addressing these challenges.” Project Challenges The proposed Family Aquatic Center represents a complex design assignment, and more importantly represents a major recreational opportunity for the community. It is crucial that all potential challenges be identified as early in the process as possible, and resolved successfully in the design and execution of the project. We have identified six key challenges in this project. Please find each of those identified below, together with our approach to addressing them: Social Challenges: A family aquatic facility is created as a place for fun. A place for interaction with water and with others. The facility must be designed to inspire children (of all ages), encourage dynamic interaction and play with water in a variety of forms, and provide active and passive venues for multiple generations of guests. ELM has an uncommon depth of understanding about how people play and interact with water, how to design for multiple generations, and how to create a sense of wonder and inspiration through design. We also understand the needs of non-swimmers, and the design of pools for children to learn to swim, as well as the ability for parents to maintain visual and supervisory control over children of different agesLanding as a part Aquatics of the facility’s design. ELM will work with the client and project stakeholders from Heritage theELM outset of the project to understand the goals of the project in the community, and develop program and design solutions to achieve those objectives. 10

Walla Walla Family Aquatic Center

Functional/Operational Challenges: Water parks and Aquatic facilities have unique operational and functional needs, both to serve guest and staff requirements. Lessons learned through the completion of dozens of projects gives ELM a unique perspective on the staffing, maintenance, and operational needs of a facility. ELM suggests working as early as possible in the design process with the facility’s management team to determine specific issues, preferences, protocols, and programmatic requirements – and establishing design solutions that create efficiency and enhanced performance. To this end, a feasibility study will also be conducted on the existing bathouse structure to determine it’s suitability for partial reuse. Technical Challenges: A well-designed Aquatic facility requires more technical coordination than virtually any other type of recreational facility. The facility needs to perform optimally for as many months of the year as possible - when it is both full-to-capacity, or when it is virtually empty – and issues of constructability need to be understood. ELM’s team is familiar with all aspects of the technical challenges of pool and aquatic facilities, and the unique requirements with respect to governing Department of Health codes and regulations. ELM has the technical expertise necessary to design for wet and dry surfaces, as well as issues of heat, humidity and capacity in buildings’ mechanical ventilation and air handling systems. Additionally, it is understood that the project is a Public Works Project, and that all specifications, bid documents, construction administration services, and other aspects of the project work will be required to comply with Washington State Public Works and the City of Walla Walla requirements and process. Ecological Challenges: Butcher Creek is located in close proximity to the proposed Aquatic Center improvements, and a comprehensive stormwater strategy will be required as an integral part of this design effort to accommodate the site work, new construction, and to maintain or enhance the creek’s water quality. ELM has extensive experience in Low Impact Design and natural resource planning, and will work together to develop strategies that integrate sustainable stormwater strategies into the project’s design. Cultural Challenges: Every community is different, and the design of this facility should represent the authentic culture and character of Walla Walla. We recognize that water play is fun and can be whimsical, however, we suggest that “off the shelf” water play elements and site treatments may not reflect the quality and character that the citizens should expect, nor are they necessarily the most cost effective. Our team has experience in designing custom spraygrounds, splash pads, pools, and water play elements, and adapting manufactured slides and components into features that are special and have integrity to the communities in which they are located. ELM will work closely with the client and stakeholder groups to identify key cultural “stories” or particular design requirements based on Walla Walla’s history, landscape, civic character, demographics, and anticipated guest needs. Aesthetic Challenges: Evidence shows that enduring value is added through beauty and creativity, and that an “ordinary” prototypical aquatics facility will not achieve the same success as one that is unique and intentionally well designed. An attractive facility will invite new guests, entice guests to stay longer, and be a better representation of the aspirations of the community. ELM’s experience suggests that good design doesn’t need to cost more or sacrifice technical performance. Cost Control & Certainty: Perhaps the most important aspect of this project is the assurance that the project’s design is consistent with the approved budget. ELM takes the stewardship of project budgets and resources very seriously, and has a Project Total Cost (PTC) management system that is designed to ensure consistent budget and cost evaluation at every phase of the project. ELM’s efforts in evaluating estimated construction costs during the project design phases consistently results in projects that are designed with greater constructability, and within budget. 11

“...provide a schedule for completing the project.”

We believe that the City of Walla Walla’s timeframe is realistic for a Grand Opening in June 2014, and ELM has established a Work Plan to meet that schedule. ELM will commit the full resources of the firm to meet established timeframes and deadlines, and will have the constant Partner-level leadership and accountability throughout the project to ensure the highest level of service. In order to facilitate the extent of client and team communication, coordination, and input necessary to ensure a successful project, ELM will have recurring meetings scheduled on-site weekly or bi-weekly as necessary based upon the phase of work. ELM’s system of management, communication, and coordination results in projects that are well-coordinated, technically-sound, and delivered on time and within budget.
