Hunt Middle School Replacement
The Tacoma School Board selected the team of Absher Construction and BCRA Design to design and build the new Hunt Middle School.
Absher led the now-completed Wilson High School modernization, and BCRA is designing the new Boze Elementary School.
The original Hunt Middle School building was constructed in 1958. Thanks to local school construction bond voters, a new 600-student capacity building featuring maker space, a stage, rooms for band, choir, and orchestra as well as a new track and fields and outdoor areas opened in September 2021.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
To ensure safety, the Hunt site is now closed to the public, including all fields and access points.
Student capacity: 600
Projected budget: $48 million
Design: July 2018 - February 2020
Contractor: Absher Construction
Construction: April 2020 - July 2021

This project is funded in part by the $500 million school construction bond voters passed in 2013 and the $535 bond voters approved in 2020.
