Our relationship with La Conner School District began in 2011 when we were asked to perform a facility condition assessment of their 6 major academic buildings. All housed on one campus, most of these aging, historical buildings were reaching a critical point where the facilities were nearing the end of their useful life. At the competition of the assessment, the district was presented with a prioritized list of deficiencies, which was used to develop a plan for the subsequent bond.
The project that ultimately rose to the top required swapping program of the elementary school and middle school buildings. Through a series of phased projects on an occupied campus, we worked with the district to modify the new elementary school for the needs of its new population, and then develop a current educational specifications document that would guide the design team as they replaced the middle school in 2015 and prepared for an eventual replacement of the high school.
