Location: Seattle, Washington

This project is a renovation of an existing historically-significant 102,000-square-foot classroom and office building constructed on the University of Washington campus in 1917. The project is a full exterior restoration and a complete redesign of the interior spaces. Approximately 14,600 assignable square feet of space in the restored Savery Hall is dedicated to general assignment classrooms. The new classrooms meet current standards for modern technology-enhanced learning spaces. Classrooms include four seminar rooms (ranging in size from 10 to 25 seats), nine small-size classrooms (ranging in size from 25 to 30 seats), five medium-size classrooms (ranging in size from 35 to 40 seats), and an 80-seat auditorium and a 200-seat auditorium. The estimated construction cost is $61.5 million.
