Corstone completed construction of the Fire Training Academy in North Bend, WA. A public bid project, the scope of work included new construction of a 9,450 square foot, multi-story, 40-bed dormitory for the Fire Training Academy. This project is owned by the Washington State Patrol.
The structure has conventional spread footings and foundation system, with a slab on grade for the lower level. The project was built into a hillside, requiring the back wall to be an earth retaining structure, while lower level walls are constructed with load-bearing masonry and concrete walls. The upper floor, upper walls and roof are of wood framed construction.
The facility includes 20 double occupancy units, a small common room, men's and women's toilet and shower facilities, as well as support spaces. The exterior materials include integrally colored ground face masonry units, a mix of flat panel and corrugated metal siding and a standing seam metal roof. Site work included minimal improvements to site circulation, landscaping, storm water management improvements and general building utilities.
