Sehome High School Replacement
General contractor: Dawson Construction
The new 190,000-square-foot Sehome High School provides innovative and flexible learning space for 1,200 Bellingham students. This streamlined facility, which replaced a 1966 California-style school, was built with multiple gathering areas to encourage student connection. The structure contains 36 classrooms and features science labs, career and technical education, culinary arts, robotics, a 400-seat theater, library with outdoor deck, commons/cafeteria, kitchen, gymnasiums, music rooms and administrative offices. Additional campus improvements include an eight-lane synthetic track, turf playfields (football, baseball, softball and soccer), six tennis courts, a 450-space parking lot and separate bus access. The GC/CM project was constructed in phases, with a building phase and a demolition/site development phase, to allow students to continue using the old school throughout the duration of the project. This phased approach resulted in students moving into their new school six months ahead of schedule.
