Whatcom Middle School

Project Description

Diamond B Constructors was awarded the $4.3 million Whatcom Middle School contract to provide complete mechanical and plumbing systems for the rebuild of the 83,000 square foot main structure destroyed by fire in 2009. The project also included renovations of the existing buildings on campus.

Construction began early February 2011, and had many challenges including:

  • Scheduling
  • Integration of new and existing utilities
  • Congested work areas
  • Limited delivery and laydown ares
  • Neighborhood impacts

Despite the challenges, the project was completed September 2011, one year ahead of schedule. Whatcom Middle School is located in Bellingham, Washington.
