Bellevue College Student Housing received a 2018 Distinguished Project Award from Northwest Construction Consumer Council!
Over the past year and a half, NAC Architecture and Walsh Construction Co. have worked closely with the Washington State Department of Enterprise Services, Bellevue College, the City of Bellevue and our subcontractor teams to plan and deliver the College’s first student housing project, achieving LEED for Homes Platinum certification. This project represents the evolution of Bellevue College from a commuter-oriented culture to a 24/7 live/learn residential campus.
Unique features include dramatic double-cantilevered building overhangs, public roof decks featuring million-dollar views, student-funded rain gardens, and 10,000 SF of ground floor public space featuring a café, lounge and study areas.
Many thanks to: RDF Builders, Co. (Metals, WRB, Finish Carpentry); Architectural Sheet Metal, Inc.; PSA, LLC; Janes Gypsum Floors, Inc.; Bayshore Concrete LLC; SS Landscape; and PELLCO Construction.
Congratulations to the dedicated project partners and our talented WALSH team: Mariah David, Tyler Katzen, Blake Flury, Fik Mulugeta, Karen Moon, Brian Lenz, Shannon Morey and John Gilson – impressive work all!
