Redmond Middle School Addition
Lake Washington School District is the second-largest district, and one of the fastest-growing, in the State of Washington. To support this growth, Redmond Middle School Addition will provide eight new classrooms, including two new science classrooms, in a two-story steel structure nestled into the existing classroom wing.
Public work, particularly work on schools, always has focus on project costs and schedule. BSE successfully managed adjustments to the design schedule to constrain project costs and to accommodate a schedule for construction during the summer of 2023.
The design makes use of a similar system to the existing classroom wing: a steel frame system with a collection of steel braced frames for wind and seismic forces. Careful consideration has been required to coordinate elements that interface with the existing building, including site constraints and seismic gaps between the existing and new structures.
