The Central Avenue Elementary School was a replacement for the original school built in 1949.

Location: Tacoma

Mason contractor: Warfield Masonry

Architect: Erickson McGovern Architects

General contractor: Neeley Construction Co.

Masonry supplier: Mutual Materials

This project was a replacement for the original Central Avenue Elementary School built in 1949. It features brick masonry arched windows similar in design to the original architecture, and crews were able to integrate repurposed 82-year-old light fixtures into the masonry.

The uniqueness of this project is that masonry was used in the arches in both the interior and exterior wall systems, and that it meets the Washington state sustainable protocol.

Primary wall systems consists of 4- and 8-inch smooth “Deep Plum” veneer.
