West High School CTE Addition/Renovation
Kumin provided concurrent design and construction administration services on the West High School/Romig Middle School campus in Anchorage, Alaska. These projects renovated and added additional shops, classrooms and learning labs for the Career Technical Education (CTE) program facilities at both schools, enabling the CTE programs to keep pace with emerging industry trends and nationwide standards for CTE education.
The West High School portion added two stories and 27,416 SF for Process Technology, Digital Media and Healthcare Academy classrooms and labs.
Kumin worked with end-users and School District staff to reconcile user desires with District standards, Ed Specs and funding, determining the program for design and construction.
Additionally, this project underwent multiple Value Engineering sessions, for which Kumin provided services. These projects required intensive project management and leadership commitment to public process and outreach. Numerous concept presentations were involved.
