Project Description

Tamarack Elementary School was the final school built by KNCC as part of a series of prototypical elementary schools for Hillsboro School District and the final project of the 2017 bond. Built with concrete and steel, the 73,500 sf school is comprised of all the latest technology and amenities, including modern, glass study pods in the hallways, open learning environments, and even a STEM lab. Site work included off-site street improvements, a new turf sports facility and covered play area, and a large parking area in the middle of the new development. The building is also rated as category IV seismic with electrical functions tied to back-up power, allowing the school to serve as a shelter for the immediate community in the event of an emergency. Prior to building Tamarack Elementary, KNCC also built Atfalati Elementary School, the 2nd school part of the same prototypical series.
