The Lake Washington School District is the fifth largest public school district in King County, WA and it continues to experience rapid growth in conjunction with the rapid growth occurring in King County. LDC performed the structural foundation design and anchorage for four 1,000 square-foot pre-manufactured modular classrooms and one 400 square-foot modular restroom. Additionally, LDC performed the structural design of a new exposed-steel canopy over the walkway between the classrooms and over a new playground area.

Going Above the Standard

School projects run on constrained project schedules as work takes place when children are not in school. This emphasized the need for superior communication and project management. LDC worked closely with the client, contractor, and school district to efficiently solve problems and keep the project on-schedule. In addition, LDC helped identify areas for value-engineering to keep the project under budget.
