City Review & Bids. Plans are in review by the City of Burien. Bassetti expects to release the first set of drawings to the general contractor/construction manager Skanska USA in March. The work will be divided up in packages for bids by subcontractors. Skanska staff have been holding information sessions to attract local subcontractors and alumni.
Final Tour in May. A final tour of the old school is planned for the afternoon of May 18, as alumni will be attending an all-class reunion that weekend. More details coming soon.
Moving Out in June. After school ends in June, movers will transport items needed for two years at the Olympic Interim School in Des Moines.
Demolition is expected to begin in early July.
Rebuilding the Main Entrance. "On the main entrance, we will take the white terracotta down block by block so we can reconstruct it," said Bassetti Principal Architect Dan Miles. The main entrance will be rebuilt to honor the original.
