    January 2020 Construction Progress Updates

    Seattle Public Schools has three school projects currently under construction. These are the last of the major projects funded by the 2013 Building Excellence IV (BEX IV) Capital Levy and the 2016 Buildings, Technology, and Academics IV (BTA IV) Capital Levy.

    Webster School, new home of Licton Springs K-8

    The project to modernize and expand Webster School continues. The school building most recently housed the Nordic Heritage Museum.

    The concrete masonry unit walls reached maximum height for the 7,700 square foot gymnasium addition. Steel trusses were installed, and the gymnasium roof installation is ready to begin once the rain subsides. The concrete slab-on-grade of the gymnasium will be poured during the last week of January.

    Modernization of the 1908 original building and the 1930 addition also continues. Most of the earthquake safety upgrades have been completed. Framing, piping, ductwork, and conduit are being installed.

    The historic windows have been refurbished and reinstalled. Installation of new windows began mid-January 2020. Window installation is important because it will help close-up the building from outside weather. This allows the contractor to start finishing the interior walls.

    This project is underway thanks to Seattle voters, who approved the 2016 BTA IV capital levy. 

    Daniel Bagley Elementary School

    Progress continues on the Daniel Bagley Elementary School modernization and expansion project.

    Precast concrete walls have been erected for the new gym, and steel roof joists are in place. The classroom addition is starting to take shape with concrete footings and stem walls complete and structural steel work underway. Similar to the Webster School project the contractor is waiting for the rain to subside prior to beginning roof construction activities.

    In the historic building, the former covered play area floor is being raised and leveled in order to include this space in the school building. Metal stud erection and gypsum wallboard activities are ongoing, defining the new classrooms.

    This project is underway thanks to Seattle voters, who approved the 2013 BEX IV and 2016 BTA IV capital levies.

    Wing Luke Elementary School

    The project to replace Wing Luke Elementary School with a new school continues. There are three connected buildings under construction.

    Structural steel, exterior metal studs, and sheathing are complete at building A. Concrete was placed for the second-floor library, breezeway, and mechanical penthouse in building B. Steel erection continues at the commons in building C.
