Nelson Lumber Construction announces a new contract with Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, Washington.
The project will be focused an major capital improvement and historic rehabilitation to The Lodge Building which Nelson Lumber Construction built as the original general contractor in 1977. Originally designed by Seattle architect Tom Bosworth (Bosworth Hoedemaker), the building was recognized with an award from the American Institute of Architects for the shake-and-timber elements.
The project will replace timber pilings which were originally harvested from Pilchuck owned forests. The pilings act as supports for the structure and deck space and are significant contributors to the beauty and integrity of the building. Other rehabilitation work will include the outdoor deck areas, stairs and railings which will be restored to original standards.
