    Project Information

    This project was included on the Long-Term Facilities Task Force recommendations. Given the age and condition of the portables, the project includes replacing the portables rather than investing in upgrading portables that are near the end of their useful life.

    Architect: Magellan Architects
    Contractor: Not selected yet
    Location: 7040 - 208th Ave N.E. Redmond (at Dickinson Elementary)
    Square Footage: 3,000
    Capacity: 75 students
    Spaces: 4 modular, including 3 standard classrooms and support space
    Estimated Project Cost: $1,664,000 (Includes construction costs of $1 million 2016 dollars, $.5 million in non-construction costs, and $100,000 in expected construction inflation)
    Planned opening: 2017
    Building Condition/Current Situation:
    Explorer Community School is a choice school located on the Dickinson Elementary campus. It is housed in portables that are between 26 and 30 years old and rated in “Poor” condition based on the annual building evaluation done using the State Building Condition Assessment. This score is based on an annual building evaluation of multiple building systems and sub-systems conducted by a third party vendor.
