The City of Kalama, sitting at the intersection of the Columbia River and the Northern Pacific Railway, has a rich history as a port city at the intersection of shipping, logging and railroad transportation. The goal of this project, completed as part of the district’s $64M bond program, was to create a distinct separation of the high school and middle school grades, formerly combined in a single secondary school model.

The design encompassed a modernization of some existing space, and the integration of 34,000 square feet of new space to create a new middle school. The project provides new general purpose and science classrooms, a new commons/cafeteria space, new library media center, new administrative offices adjacent to the commons and a separate, discrete main entrance to the middle school.

Our work also included planning, design and construction of a new science and STEM center that serves both the middle and high school programs.

Work at Kalama Middle School included a modernization of existing space and a 34,000 SF addition that enhances program delivery and creates separation from the adjoining high school program. A transformation of existing space, coupled with the an addition, created a new state-of-the-art Science and CTE Learning Center at Kalama High School.

The addition is a pre-engineered metal building that connects to the existing shop building and expands available maker space for the CTE program. The addition has direct connectivity to covered outdoor learning space.
