Washburn Construction Updates

Under Construction Sign
Last year, Washburn was granted Capital Improvement money to create an addition that will add 5 much needed science rooms to our building. We are scheduled to undergo major renovation and vertical expansion starting May 19, 2018.  Renovation efforts shall include hazardous materials remediation, interior demolition of music and science classrooms, vertical building expansion to create new classrooms and a new location for the mechanical penthouse which will be demolished to allow for vertical construction.

Construction shall include new exterior wall, roofing, exterior glazing to match and complement the existing building design. Interior construction shall include new circulation stair, classroom build-out and finishes, upgraded ceilings in music rooms to improve sound, and new single occupant toilet rooms; the base project scope includes architectural upgrades for the music and science rooms at Washburn. 

Major renovation includes significant mechanical, plumbing, electrical, structural and architectural tie-in requirements to the existing building.  The renovation shall address deficiencies as related capacity and enrollment by adding new classrooms and improving the condition of existing spaces. The work is primarily limited to the Northwest wing and portions of the Southwest wing of the building, which is adjacent to the surface parking at Washburn. Phased construction and new access routing will be done to assure safety and security during construction and to minimize impact (of noise, dust, vibration) to adjacent classrooms and building occupants.
