Tacoma Public Schools is working with Seattle-based company Skansa to be general contractor and construction manager for two major school-rebuilding projects.
McCarver Elementary and Stewart Middle School were both built in 1924; both are on the city and state historic registers. Construction at both is scheduled to start in summer 2015. A rebuilt McCarver should open in September 2016 and a rebuilt Stewart is set to open in September 2017, according to the school district.
The district announced that it plans to negotiate a contract with Skansa this month and seek final school board approval in February.
In Tacoma, the company’s previous projects include the Museum of Glass and the modernization of Stadium High School.
