Valley View Middle School

Location: Snohomish, WA
Owner: Snohomish School District, Heery International

Striving for the Living Building Challenge design standards, this project treats all stormwater onsite using porous pavements and rain gardens. Sustainable site features act as a part of the curriculum and educate visitors to the school. Stormwater collection and reuse is demonstrated both inside and outside the building when stormwater overflows from a collection vault and expressed as a water cascade feature at the main entry to the school.
