St. Joseph School AdditionThe St. Joseph School in Seattle, WA underwent an extensive upgrade with modifications being made to the existing middle school and elementary school to allow for an 8,500 SF addition. The scope of work was completed in two phases with work being completed only during the school’s summer breaks. Charter’s project team worked quickly to ensure the tight deadlines were met while teachers and students were away.
Phase One of the project included performing classroom modifications and preparations for a new elevator system. Significant work was completed to the existing mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems to make way for the addition. Phase Two began during the 2014 spring break and features new administrative offices, a two story entry vestibule, reception area, classrooms space, a new clock tower and an elevator to service the new added space.
Proper precautions were taken during demolition at the St. Joseph School. Performing work to buildings built during the early 1900’s and 1950’s can be challenging and Charter monitored air quality and took caution with asbestos abatement.
