Project Location: Redmond, WA
Total Square Footage: 65,000 sq.ft.
The Lake Washington School District was expanding and in need of a new secondary science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) school. M SPACE worked closely with a traditional construction company to seamlessly integrate both modular and traditional building practices and deliver a high quality, turnkey project. The school was constructed in two phases, allowing two-thirds of the building to be occupied prior to completion. The two-story permanent school consists of 160 modular units with 24 classrooms, a presentation hall, common areas, administrative offices, a full service kitchen, restrooms and a nurse’s office. Totaling 65,000 square feet, the STEM school provides an efficient design for students and educators and represents the broad capabilities and limitless design opportunities when integrating permanent modular construction and traditional construction. The collaboration also allowed for a reduced construction schedule.
Special features for this project included skylights with motorized skylight louvers, open second floor balconies, automatic light controls, an elevator, store front windows with motorized shades, photovoltaic solar panels on the roof and power cord reels in the classrooms.
