Zervas is pleased to announce that Zach Newhard has joined us as an Intern Architect. Zach has spent his career focusing on regional traditions and adapting them to contemporary styles of living and building. Drawing inspiration from the natural world and immediate communities, he has completed a range of projects in rural and urban Northeast environments. A broad variety of project budgets has given Zach the flexibility necessary to work well within dynamic construction teams. He is excited to be contributing to the rich fabric of Washington and the Northwest.
Zach earned his Bachelor of Architecture degree at Drexel University, spending weekdays interning at architecture firms in the city and volunteering carpentry work at community service centers on the weekends.
This project is being done using a phased approach with two major new additions being constructed in the first two phases. The two new buildings will surround the existing High School on two sides. When the second phase of construction is completed, the majority of the old school will be demolished and a secure interior courtyard created.
When completed the High School will have 90,000 square feet of new space, and 36,000 square feet of remodeled and modernized space, new stadium grandstands, a new storm water detention facility, upgraded primary electrical service, tennis courts, parking lot and courtyard space. Construction is scheduled to continue through August of 2019.
Phase 3 is underway.
