WEST SEATTLE SCHOOLS: Construction starting for Madison Middle School addition

Thanks for the tips about the fencing that’s up at Madison Middle School. Construction mobilization is under way for the building addition that will be built over the next year. The school will stay open while it’s being built, but Seattle Public Schools says half the playfield will be off-limits.

The 2-story, 8-classroom, 12,500-square-foot project on the north side of the Madison campus will cost $10 million, funded by a state Distressed Schools Grant. The architects are Studio Meng Strazzara. The contractor is Forma Construction.

The addition is scheduled to be ready for occupancy at the start of the 2022-2023 school year. If you’re wondering about the other big project at Madison – athletic-field renovation with turf and lighting – that’s not happening until next year.

    I was wondering why there was no action on this yet. I expected them to start construction as soon as classes were finished in June. Now construction will barely be underway when classes resume.

      The school board just gave its approval to the contract 2 weeks ago. Which reminds me, forgot to include the contractor’s name in the story, adding.

    When Greenwood elementary was remodeled the process caused dust to come into my mother’s house, which was located  across the street.  When that was reported to the company doing the work they paid for a cleaning of her house when all was done.  Something to consider!

    Very sad :(. Had a lot of good memories playing soccer on that field. Big loss for the soccer club

      The field isn’t going away. Temporary partial access loss during construction, which is not happening ON the field itself.

Sorry, comment time is over.
