CHG erected structural steel for two schools in the Bellevue School district; Spiritridge Elementary School and Tyee Middle School. The two projects involved erecting more than 1250 tons of steel, joists and metal decking. Both projects are concrete slab on grade with CMU and steel structure, steel bar joists with steel decking, rigid insulation and a single ply roof membrane or metal roofing. The exterior walls are constructed of steel studs and CMU. Exterior finishes on the stud walls are brick veneer, phenolic panels and fiber reinforced cementitious panels.
