French American School of Puget Sound

This two-story addition was added to French American’s existing single story facility to accommodate the increasing enrollment at this elite school.

Weinstein Architects A/U was contracted to design the new addition and Tornberg Consulting was used to handle all engineering requirements for the remodel including an elevator, stairwells, and all required internal building supports. The new structure featured a low-slope rubber membrane roof with mansard, painted metal exterior window awnings, painted smooth hardi-board siding, 1”x2” wood slats added for ascetic purposes, and roof-mounted electric heat-pumps. The interior of the building was designed with 8’ T-grid ceilings, painted sheetrock and tack-board interior walls, 1/8” block tile flooring with 26 nylon carpeting, and painted wood interior doors and window trims.
