Discovery Hall

Location: Bothell, Washington
Client: University of Washington

Lewis constructed a 74,000 square foot building that houses 11 science labs, several classrooms, a 200-person lecture hall, and faculty offices at the center of the active UW Bothell campus. Specialized areas include a motion-capture lab and a “collaboratory” that enables group learning. The project was a case study in maximizing integrated teaming and Lean within Washington’s GC/CM contracting law. Project elements that enabled timely design and construction included: shared goals between Lewis, the UW, and the design team, working together continually and without “silos” , fully leveraging BIM to expedite design and quality construction; and last-planner scheduling.
