Roen Associates performed value engineering, construction cost estimating, and constructability review services for this major new addition for the Ridgefield School District near Vancouver, Washington. The project was a large new school with an innovative educational program for this progressive southwestern community. The school will house 5th-8th graders.

The design incorporated a new method of pouring slabs on grade to minimize cracking. We found the concept to be an added cost but one that would minimize cracking of the often-exposed concrete slab in the facility. All our separate efforts were met with challenging site conditions ranging from significant earthwork, to drainage, to construction phasing on this expansive site.

Building Size: 67,984 sq. feet

Site Size: 503,976 sq. feet
