Project Profiles


Architect: S + L Architects, LLC
Location: Bellevue, WA

Description: 9,917 sq. ft. adaptive re-use of an existing office building into a pre-kindergarten school. The project included 8 new classrooms each with their own children’s restroom, 2 new common areas used for science and computer labs, an activity area, a reception area, and a staff break room with restrooms. Exterior construction included a new 2,800 sq. ft. playground using low maintenance synthetic turf and a learning area with raised garden beds. Work occurred over summer break requiring a very aggressive schedule to accommodate both State and Department of Early Learning inspections required before the start of the school year.
"Working with Foushée on our new school facility in Bellevue has been another great experience. Our success on previous projects is the reason we decided to work with them again. Foushée performed exceptionally in all of the contractor roles, including scheduling, communication, being proactive in planning, and creatively solving issues as they came along. As a valuable team member, their leadership with the design team and the subcontractors helped facilitate the project to stay on budget, and most importantly, on schedule for our first day of school. Thank you for making my job easier. I highly recommend Foushée and look forward to working with them again in the future."
