Facility Planning, Code Research, and Site Design
The Overlake School in Redmond Washington is a private 5th through 12th school in rural Redmond Washington. They were planning new buildings, fields, parking lots, and road improvements throughout the site. The King County permitting department required a Conditional Use Permit that encompassed all the foreseeable projects on campus.The campus is constrained by critical areas throughout the site, imposing building setbacks that determined where the buildings and site developments could be placed.
Hazelrigs Architecture assisted the school’s owner’s rep, Alliance Construction Management, to create the Conditional Use Permit application, shepherding it through the King County permitting department. The planning process began in 2013 and the CUP was approved in 2018.
A dog breeder had begun construction of their kennel facilities and were told to stop work and get a building permit. This required an Already Built Construction (ABC) permit. Two new buildings were modified shipping container, so they needed energy upgrades, structural reinforcing for openings that had been cut into the sides, and proper foundations.The owner needed a permit for clearing done without one. The permit application included Health Department requirements for a kennel permit. The project was on a well, so the King County Health Department in charge of well water was involved. The site had critical area wetlands, so required building setbacks to be determined. A pole barn had been converted to kennel space which was a change of use that triggered additional upgrades. Zoning requirements had to be met. King County had issued violation notices which had to be resolved.
Hazelrigs Architecture worked with the County to work through these issues and put the project on course to get required permits.
