Delta STEM Highschool

Pasco, WA

This new 45,000 SF STEM High School serves students in Richland, Kennewick and Pasco, WA focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. The two-story structural steel-framed building features metal siding aluminum panels and structural precast metal roofing. The school has 20 classrooms, many with lab spaces. The building is horseshoe-shaped, winding around a large open courtyard, with covered walkways. The project was constructed in three phases — Phase 1 and 2 focused on the learning environment, with Phase 3 adding permanent locations for administration, kitchen, and cafeteria spaces. Four hundred students in grades 9-12 occupy the facility. This project was completed in just ten months.
