Lake Washington School District needed a new campus built for the Tesla STEM High project before the beginning of the new school year.
The District wisely chose modern modular construction over traditional “stick-built” construction for this ground-up project. This accelerated the completion date from 2 years to 8 months and at a fraction of the cost: $24.7 million.
Accuset Construction worked closely with the developer to ensure precision foundations were set while the 161 modular units were being simultaneously constructed at the factory in nearby Oregon.
Through three main phases of the project, there was a continual workflow that including the concrete foundations, setting the frame units, building firewalls, and the final set of the remaining units.
This highly efficient coordination and build process enabled the Tesla STEM High campus to come to life in half the time of typical construction projects.
