Old Woodinville School

Name:  The Old Woodinville School
Location:  Woodinville, Washington
Completed:  In Progress
The Old Woodinville School is a city-owned building that has been abandoned due to concerns over seismic stability.  As a pro-bono effort and in consultation with local preservationists, the stability of the structure was reviewed and rehabilitation strategies were developed.  The building was found to be serviceable but the lack of occupation of the structure has led to further deterioration.  Richaven recommended several strategies to help preserve the building from further deterioration including strategies such as maintaining some heat in the building, making minor roof repairs and keeping the windows closed to prevent rain intrusion.  The building’s rehabilitation hinges on development of a suitable strategy for use of the building.
