Steilacoom High School

Work performed in this GC/CM project included construction of a two-story, 30,000 square foot building attached to the existing school to provide additional program space for the music, science, food service, child development and interior design programs. This phase of construction was performed while school was in session and fully occupied. Schedule coordination continued on a daily basis during WASL testing, and material deliveries were scheduled accordingly so bus routes and student drop-off areas were not disrupted.

Renovation and repair work consisted of remodeling 100,000 square feet of the existing school. This complex scope of work included demolition and abatement of hazardous material, installation of full MEP systems, updates to building security systems and upgrades to floor finishes, lighting, technology, painting and cafeteria service. This phase was successfully completed in a three-month schedule while students were on summer vacation.

The project team was so successful with schedule management and cost tracking that the school district was able to approve remaining contingencies be allocated to a new turf athletic field, event seating and press box.

No matter what the issue: dust, water or noise, we formed a tight partnership with the Korsmo people and they listened and problem solved with us.
