Grandview High School
The $53M Grandview High School project features 160,000 sq/ft of state of the art systems, equipment, and finishes and at the time of construction was the largest High School in the State of Washington. This project was completed in two phases – beginning with phase one development and construction of the new building and surrounding site work, and phase 2 demolition of the existing school with subsequent site development of a large soccer field and student/staff parking areas. Inside, the new Grandview High School features a 4,000 sq/ft kitchen designed to be the main kitchen in the Grandview School District, a STEM Lab, Agricultural Science Lab, an exquisite stage for theater productions, along with a gymnasium, weight room, and dual locker rooms designed to be adequate for collegiate level athletes. The outdoor amenities include a large enclosed courtyard with artificial turf and custom shade structures designed to be a gathering area for students, as well as a patio area for students to eat lunch. The project phasing challenged FGC’s project team to coordinate work around the existing school and the district’s needs to operate in its final year in the old High School. For example, the new school’s main entry canopy came within nine inches of the existing school structure, requiring a high level of coordination and planning to execute the project as a whole.
