Scope of Work

  • Please note that project costs and schedules may fluctuate due to cost of materials and labor, conditions at the site, unforeseen and/or revised scope, and other factors. Projected budget: $6.4 million.

    October-November 2021

    • Street Improvements

    Improvements will be made to Southview Street adjacent to the new bus dropoff entrance, including new sidewalk and paving. These are required by our land use permit with Washington County as a condition for the campus renovations.

    • Landscaping

    Trees, plants and hydroseeding will take place in cooler months in the front plaza and other renovated exterior areas.

    • Finish Elevator Installation

    A new elevator, delayed by supply chain issues, is being installed in the fall to provide ADA access between the main floor and the cafeteria. The shaft itself was completed over the summer.


    • Campus Renovations

    Over summer 2021, the Butternut Creek campus underwent several renovations that included: safety and seismic upgrades, parent/bus dropoff improvements, addition of air conditioning to the HVAC system, and a new entry plaza. The portables were replaced with a permanent, modular building housing two classrooms. The entry vestibule was renovated to upgrade security and limit visitor access into the building.

    • Domestic Water Pipe Replacement

    In summer 2020, new domestic water pipe was installed throughout the Butternut Creek building to replace aging pipe.

    • New Playground

    Butternut Creek had a new playground installed in summer 2018. The play structure includes eight swings and ground-floor activities that are ADA-accessible. It is installed on a safer, padded tile surface (replacing the existing wood chips). Students also have a 1500 square-foot artificial turf playspace that can be used rain or shine.

    • Flexible Furniture

    Flexible furniture (FFE) was delivered in summer 2018. Research shows this type of furniture enhances the learning environment and increases student engagement.
