Glacier Building

The new approximately 36,000 SF building houses Veterinary Technology and Dental Hygiene

Client: Pierce College Fort Steilacoom
Market: Higher Education
Location: Lakewood, Washington

This is a new two-story building for Dental Hygiene and Veterinary Technology whose space requirements have grown and exceeded the capacity within their existing space for effective and meaningful program delivery. Most importantly, spatial expansion is crucial to meet the updated programmatic and accreditation requirements. The project also addressed site improvements: improving accessibility in parking lots, restoring the native Garry Oak tree ecosystem, and creating safer pedestrian pathways for students while connecting the network to the adjacent Waughop Lake for the community.
