ADAMS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Seattle Public Schools
In order to leave open the possibility of additional beneficial scope, DOWA-IBI worked with the district to develop a number of alternates with a priority system for selection. With positive bid results, this enabled Seattle Public Schools to select a more robust roofing system, expand replacement to the entire roof system and fully upgrade all roof seismic diaphragms, add valuable roof access ladders and fall protection for maintenance staff, and replace aging penthouse stucco finishes with metal panel for greater longevity. All of these improvements were achieved at a cost 8.37% below the original project budget, a spectacular result for the school, district, and larger community.
