Sterling Intermediate School

Eastmont School District
East Wenatchee, WA

This project reorganized an existing school into distinct wings for 5th, 6th and 7th grade. A new central heart of the school was created that includes the student commons, library, computer labs, lockers and project/art rooms. This reorganization was designed to improve supervision, safety and student flow. 57,000 square feet of the existing 77,000 square foot school was modernized and the remainder of the building (20,000 square feet) was demolished and rebuilt is a different location to complete the reorganization. The project also included 15,000 square feet of new space to accommodate current and future needs.

The site was reorganized to provide a separate bus drop off area from the parent drop off to improve student safety and traffic congestion. An exterior student gathering area and playfields were relocated to improve visual connection between the student commons for ease of supervision. Construction was completed in multiple phases on an occupied campus.
