McGranahan Architects


Chehalis School District is building two new elementary schools to replace the existing Olympic Elementary School, grouping students from pre-K through 2nd grade and 3rd through 5th. SCJ Alliance is providing civil engineering design services for the new schools, which have a total footprint of 99,800 square feet on a 42-acre site.

Site improvements include two elementary schools, a dedicated bus loop, parent parking and drop-off areas, and frontage improvements. Site design also includes water main design, sanitary sewer extension, and a stormwater detention system that alleviates downstream impacts for residents to the north.


“The importance of this project to the community was apparent from the beginning. We took great care during design to ensure the final product exceeds our client’s and the community’s expectations.”
