A Deep Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

WSCC has a strong, voluntary commitment to partnering with minority, small, veteran, disadvantaged and women-owned businesses. These companies are critical to making the WSCC Addition a success.

Contracting Opportunities

The WSCC Addition has set a goal of $70 million in contracting opportunities for local minority, small, veteran, disadvantaged and women-owned businesses. For similar project types in the region, these voluntary goals will result in record subcontracting opportunities for diverse businesses.

Resources for Contractors

The WSCC Addition has several resources available for qualified service providers interested in bidding on contracting opportunities. 

Union Partnerships

The existing Convention Center is a union facility. The Addition project will employ union labor during the construction process, and it is anticipated that the completed Addition will employ union labor. The construction and operation of the Addition will retain and grow thousands of quality, living wage jobs in the Seattle region.
