Redmond Ridge Middle School Markerboards / Glassboards / Fire Extinguisher Cabinets / Bike Racks
Owner: Lake Washington School District
General Contractor: Lydig Construction
Architect: McGranahan Architects
A new middle school in Redmond sought to feature bright finishes reflecting the optimism of their students without having to sacrifice the functionality of their walls. PBS was quick furnish options which both excited the eyes and minds of future students for years to come with vibrantly colored writable glass markerboards and uniquely hued tackable wallcovering.
“bright finishes reflecting the optimism of their students without having to sacrifice the functionality of their walls”
Installation challenge: met
Wall to wall writable glass poses a variety of installation challenges; not limited to exact measurement prior to order, direct to wall application resulting in a single attempt to glue in place, and the obvious risk of breaking a board. These issues however proved nothing more than a feather in the cap of our union carpenters who attacked the project with an enthusiasm second only to the brightness of the glass they installed. With five(!) different colors of cork throughout the building there is sure to be the perfect backdrop for the any work of art.
