The City of Tukwila completed a major renovation to their indoor swimming pool facility, which included the creation of a functional pedestrian connection from the existing parking lot to the front door of the building. The LA Studio, LLC was selected to work with the Parks and Recreation staff to develop an innovative and cost effective pedestrian connection. Two workable alternatives were developed that met the City’s functional program and design criteria. Preliminary construction cost estimates were developed for each and a final design selected. No stairs, formal ramps or associated handrails were required.
