CONWAY SCHOOL SITE IMPROVEMENTS – Conway, WA (1995)

Reference: Conway School District: 360-445-5785

John Tuttle, while employed with a Mount Vernon engineering consultant, was tasked with designing and cost estimating parking and drainage improvements at the Conway Elementary School campus. The existing parking lot needed renovation to better delineate parking areas from common areas, separate vehicular traffic from bus traffic, and to more effectively manage stormwater runoff. In addition, the site’s steep topography mandated select grading be performed to accommodate physically-challenged site visitors. The site’s connection to State Route 534 required the project be developed utilizing strict highway access and permitting standards set by the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) and required detailed coordination with the WSDOT on right-of-way, design, stormwater management, and construction administration. Project Budget: $450,000.

BURLINGTON-EDISON HIGH SCHOOL CAMPUS IMPROVEMENTS – Burlington, WA (1995)

Reference: Burlington-Edison School District, John Leander : 360-757-3311

John Tuttle, while employed with a Skagit County engineering consultant, was tasked with designing student activity, parking lot, and drainage improvements at the Burlington-Edison High School campus. The existing parking lot needed renovation to better delineate parking areas from pedestrian areas, to separate vehicular traffic from bus traffic, and to more effectively manage stormwater runoff. In addition, the site’s topography mandated specialized grading be performed to accommodate physically-challenged site visitors. The site’s connection to North Burlington Boulevard required the project to be designed utilizing strict road and site access standards set by the City of Burlington and the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT). This project showcased our ability to effectively perform site assessments, multidisciplinary design and permitting, and coordinate with numerous resource agencies.

WESTERN WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY MULTI-PURPOSE PLAYFIELDS – Bellingham, WA (2011)

Reference: Western Washington University Foundation, Sara Nichols : 360-650-3554

John Tuttle partnered with a local group of design professionals to identify the most efficient site configuration for a new multi-use playfield on the Western Washington University campus. Collaborative design was performed by engineers, architects, land-use planners, and recreational facility coordinators with a goal of effectively identifying the most viable use of available funds and to identify additional funds needed through a grant application process. Conceptual design performed included storm and sanitary sewer, parking lot configurations, iterative mass grading to balance site materials, and multiple site alternative layouts.
