Spokane-based Lydig Construction Inc. has landed contracts worth at least $113 million for three projects in the Snohomish School District in Western Washington.
The projects, which will be managed by Lydigs Bellevue office, include construction of a $62 million high school, a $35 million to $45 million modernization of another high school, and construction of a $16 million elementary school.
Lydig already has begun work on the 245,000-square-foot high school, which will be located near state Route 9 in the southern end of the school district, about 20 miles north of Seattle, says Bill Dobyns, a Lydig project manager.
Its one of our bigger projects, Dobyns says.
The school is being built on a 53-acre site that was cleared of trees and graded last summer, he says. Lydig started work there late last month and expects to complete the school, which hasnt been given a name yet, in time for the 2008 school year.
Were on site and setting footings, Dobyns says. The project is a complete high school including athletic facilities for football, soccer, and baseball.
The school was designed by the Seattle office of NAC/Architecture, of Spokane. Lydig is working with several engineering firms on the project, including NAC Engineering, of Spokane; Coughlin Porter Lundeen, of Seattle; Hardis & Associates Inc., of San Diego; Weisman Design Group Inc. PS, of Seattle; and George E. Bundy & Associates, of Seattle.
Lydig also was awarded a contract in October to upgrade the school districts current high school in downtown Snohomish.
That project will be worth $35 million to $45 million, depending on how much work to the school the district ultimately decides to do, Dobyns says.
In its call for bids, the district included a new greenhouse, and sports training and fitness, career-tech, and art buildings, as well as remodeling the administration, commons, and gym buildings.
In the third project, the Spokane-based company broke ground in June on a $16 million, 78,000-square-foot elementary school that will be located adjacent to the new high school its now building. The elementary school is scheduled to be complete by next fall.
When the projects are complete, each of the districts two high schools will be able to serve about 1,500 students, and the new elementary school will have a capacity to serve 700 students. The Snohomish School District currently serves about 9,000 students.
