Multiple Public Schools
Seattle Public Schools engaged MENG Analysis to facilitate development of Owner's Project Requirements (OPR) to guide project development includes through design, construction, and commissioning of the following schools:
Daniel Bagley Elementary School
The project included a major addition and renovation to the existing school facility. Various minor renovations have been completed over the years including mechanical, electrical and building envelope system upgrades. The school now has expanded enrollment after the renovation.
Lincoln High School
The project includes a major renovation of the existing school building. The facility was used as an interim school site where an elementary school and other programs are located. These programs have relocated in to new school facilities that were constructed.
Queen Anne Elementary School
The project included a major addition to the existing school facility. The original wood frame school building was constructed in 1905 and a second brick masonry building constructed in 1922. Both school buildings and the site have Landmark designation. The school cfter the new addition project is complete it will continue with an expanded elementary school program.
Wing Luke Elementary School
The project included demolishing of the existing school buildings and construction of a new expanded elementary school at the same location.
Approach & Process
Through a series of workshops, MENG Analysis, along with District stakeholders developed a Master OPR, then tailored the Master to each of the four aforementioned projects. This project was originally planned to be a single workshop for each of the five OPRs. However, early in the process, it was decided that a more iterative approach would increase stakeholder involvement and result in greater stakeholder buy-in. The resulting six master meetings and four site-specific workshops provided a venue for diverse SPS stakeholders including finance, education, capital projects, O&M, resource conservation, planning, and others, to address each other’s concerns and requirements for project success. This resulted in all parties gaining a more thorough understanding of the goals and challenges that each groups faces. By facilitating communication between these groups, the resulting OPRs are more thorough and incorporate elements that are important to each stakeholder group.
