Work finished this fall at Carter Lake and Hillside Elementary schools. Clover Park School District rebuilt the two schools on their old sites at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Lakewood.

The schools were designed using a standardized prototype based on four core functions: classroom, administration, multi-purpose and resource center. The block can be repositioned to accommodate the site while maintaining function and efficiency.

As a result, the designs were completed in six months. Planning and coordination allowed work to be done while the schools stayed open.

The new 67,666-square-foot Carter Lake Elementary can accommodate 500 students. The project cost about $31.5 million.

The new 73,100-square-foot Hillside Elementary can accommodate 650 students. It cost $33.7 million.
