Project Highlights

Quotation Mark

"Hilltop Heritage Elementary is truly a special school with its unprecedented use of mass timber in the Puget Sound area. What a fun challenge, structurally and beyond, and we were honored to bring our expertise to the project. The team was amongst the best you’ll find, from having such a supportive owner at Renton Public Schools, a creative and thoughtful architect in Hutteball+Oremus, and a skillful and patient builder with Cornerstone General Contractors, it was such a rewarding experience. We all learned so much; so apropos for a school project!"
