New Marysville-Pilchuck High School Cafeteria Opens

Students at Marysville-Pilchuck High School came back from winter break to their new Food Commons, a cafeteria and gathering space opened Wednesday, January 4, 2017. The school’s existing cafeteria had been closed since October 2014, after a deadly shooting occurred in the space. The new Food Commons creates a revitalized environment to help the school move forward after this tragic event.

The 16,382 SF, two-story building includes a kitchen, cafeteria/open space for students to gather and each lunch, ASB offices, and a DECA marketing classroom and student store that includes a window into the gymnasium, allowing sales during events.

Wood Harbinger provided mechanical and fire protection engineering for the new facility, which included a dedicated high-efficiency boiler plant, central chilled water system with an air-cooled chiller, and a systems penthouse.  The facility was built to the Washington Sustainable Schools Protocol, with mechanical and plumbing systems designed to use 15 percent less energy and 25 percent less water than a baseline code building.
