Location: Seattle

General contractor: Absher Construction Co.

The design-build team of Absher and Integrus renovated the historic Parrington Hall, the second-oldest building on the University of Washington Seattle campus. It was originally built in 1902 as Science Hall and home to the geology, mining, zoology, civil engineering, botany and mechanical engineering departments. The $18 million progressive design-build renovation included reconfiguring the 56,000-square-foot, four-story classroom space to meet the Evans School of Public Policy’s program needs for flexible learning and office space, plus associated structural, architectural and building systems updates. Brick, steel and reclaimed Douglas fir are featured throughout the building to capture the essence of the original structure while modernizing the atmosphere. The historic building’s exterior was preserved in accordance with landmark permit requirements. There were many layers of the historic building to uncover and then fit back together. The Absher team preserved the best of Parrington Hall and its history.
