The highly compressed construction schedule for this secondary alternative school was met by using modular construction for the school building. Cascade Engineering provided the structural design of the 158 modules, which were constructed off-site. The greatest design challenge of the project was also included in Cascade’s scope of work. That challenge was the design of the seismic connections between the modules and to the foundations which had extremely limited access during construction. Cascade met the challenge with creative and consistent solutions.
