We’re pleased to announce that the EWU PUB has won it’s 6th design award and this one is Global in stature! The 2022 World Architecture News WAN Awards gave it the (Bronze Award) in the “Education and Research Facilities” built category. The project is one of only two Educational built projects in the United States to be honored this year. Congratulations to Perkins & Will and the entire EWU PUB team!
With 104,400 SF, this new 5-story dormitory is the first student housing to be built on EWU’s campus in over 40 years. The building and large exterior courtyard are oriented to the south and southeast to make use of natural light. The ground floor has a large student lounge with a fireplace, a main lobby and administrative offices.
The school is located on a thirty-six acre site. Extensive sitework began with moving 250,000 CY of material to prepare the building pad. A two-story steel and concrete masonry structure was built to accommodate 1,500 students. The 240,080 SF building features 50 classrooms, eight science labs, seven computer labs, vo-tech space, a 500-seat auditorium and gymnasium with elevated running track.
Project involved a complete modernization of the existing 64,100 SF Wellpinit HS/MS building. Improvements to the building envelope included replacement of exterior doors and windows, roof replacement and restoration of exterior masonry and precast concrete panels. The roof structure over the center portion of the building was completely demolished, then reconstructed to alter the roof line in response to serious roof drainage issues.
Our clients are a diverse cross section of the community, including private parties, churches, corporations, medical institutions, and city, state and federal government agencies.
