Olympic Middle School Replacement

The new Olympic Middle School for Auburn School District will replace the existing school at its current 17.4 acre site. Designed to serve 800 students, the new 105,000-square-foot school will provide a facility that better meets the instructional and operational needs of the school, is more energy efficient, and meets current building codes. The commons will be the heart of the school, serving as a gathering place for students and community, and have an open and welcoming feel. Small collaborative spaces will be located in corridor alcoves to serve as small group work areas during instructional times and informal gathering area during non-instructional times.

The $57.8M project will be constructed in three phrases: Phase 1 -- Construct new school building at playfield area at south end of school property. Phase 2 -- Provide minor modernization of existing school to accommodate use of facility as an interim elementary school for 4 to 5 years. Phase 3 -- Demolish existing buildings and site features after facility is no longer needed for an interim elementary school then build new playfields and parking. 

Kalama Elementary School & Middle/High School Addition

We were engaged in April 2017 to aid the Kalama School District in facility planning, educational planning and bond development and pre-design. Our work included an analysis of existing facility conditions, educational planning and needs identification, pre-design and cost modeling, stakeholder facilitation, community outreach and strategic bond communications support for both the district and its citizen action committee. Upon bond passage in February 2018, we were engaged to continue service for all bond projects, which includes a new Kalama Elementary School and an addition to the high school/middle school.
