Stadium High School


Metric Image of the Stadium High School, Tacoma WASchool Renovation: The building was originally intended to be a fine luxury hotel on the Pacific Coast. Construction of the hotel began in 1891, but came to a halt in 1893 in the wake of a nationwide financial panic and depression. The unfinished shell was then used to store lumber, until a fire gutted the building in October, 1898. Later, it was converted to a school, and the first students began classes in what was then called Tacoma High School on September 10, 1906. 

Since 1977, it has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places.




Existing-Conditions Drawings

 

For the renovation and expansion project, it was completely documented through twenty-one "existing-conditions" CAD drawings. - Documentation of the building during classes, with 1,900 students, was a challenge!

Designated Historic - Existing-Conditions Drawings

 

Detail of the Main Elevation - Important to note is that each line, point, and even the smallest features of the drawings, are result of detailed, accurate, and discrete measurements. As the documentation is executed by remote means (through photographs), there are no easier or more difficult points to measure - all parts of the building, high on the roof or on the ground level, are measured with the same accessibility.

School Renovation - As Built Floor Plan

 

Elevations, Sections and Plans, on a total of 21 drawings, were produced in 13 weeks of office work. With photogrammetric and laser scanning measurements, each and partitions of the large building was measured and checked against the overall drawings and accuracy, providing homogeneity and reliability of all information.
