McMicken Heights Elementary School

2011

McMicken Heights delivers a 66,500 SF elementary school that was one of the first schools to embrace the new Washington Sustainable Schools Protocol.  Additionally, its proximity to SeaTac Airport necessitates the use of noise mitigation techniques and attention to detail at roof framing connections to discourage the propagation of sound through the structure.  PCS worked closely with the architect to achieve dramatic tilted and canted pre-cast concrete and steel canopies and main building columns.  PCS kept the project on budget by utilizing tilt-up concrete wall panels and consistent use of steel framing sizes and connections.
