Project: Bear Lake Schools

"The Bear Lake construction project was an amazing success. Our success can be attributed to the high professional standards that Lakewood, Inc. maintains. Their on-site and off-site construction management was outstanding. I have worked with various architects and construction management firms during the course of my career. I give Lakewood, Inc. my highest recommendation." Greg Webster, Superintendent

Zeeland West High School - Pool & Gym Additions Finished

This addition to the existing West High School building features a pool / aquatic center with entrance lobby and also includes a practice gymnasium.The construction of the building varies. The pool area consists of rigid steel construction with barrel-vaulted trusses supporting continuous 145-foot curved standing-seam roof panels. The men’s and women’s locker rooms, a workout room, and pool support / mechanical rooms are located beneath the cast-in-place concrete bleachers. The practice gymnasium and lobby areas are conventional masonry-bearing construction.The pool itself is slightly longer than MHSAA regulation at 119 feet by 75 feet (10 primary lanes, and 16 secondary lanes) and has a movable floating bulkhead that allows the 119-foot dimension to be partitioned to a regulation 33 1/3 meters x 25 yards and allow event equipment and associated markings to be easily reconfigured for different events or even to allow multiple events simultaneously. There are two (2) diving platforms on the west end. Scorekeeping and video systems are all state-of-the-art technology with a full motion high-definition video board.In keeping with Zeeland’s sustainability design paradigm, there are energy recovery systems and the water temperature is regulated by tying in to the existing geothermal well system. There are also lucrative amounts of natural lighting protected by sun shades to match the existing structure.

Zeeland West High School Finished

Project: Zeeland West High School

This facility showcases “Sustainable Design” concepts and technologies which have now become staples of Zeeland Public Schools’ building construction and maintenance programs. It includes a modern media center and food-service area as well as advanced athletic facilities and laboratory classrooms.The building is heated and cooled by heat pumps linked to a network of closed-loop geothermal wells located under an adjacent practice field. In addition to adding extra insulation to the roof and walls to minimize heat loss, the roof is covered with white ThermoPlastic Olefin (TPO) membrane to substantially reduce heat gain during the cooling season.A small wind turbine and Photovoltaic Array generate a portion of the building’s power. In addition to being connected to the electrical grid, these features have been connected with special monitoring equipment used as teaching tools by the school’s Technology Department.Strategically sized and placed windows and sunshades allow significant amounts of natural light to enter the building reducing the need to utilize artificial lighting while still significantly reducing solar gain during the warmer parts of the year.It has been documented that this High School (Zeeland West), which is similar in size to its sister school (Zeeland East) located only 1100-feet to the east, is saving the taxpayers nearly 50% in energy costs compared to the traditional systems in use at the Zeeland East building.

Hope College Martha Miller Center Completed

Hope College’s new Martha Miller Center for Global Communication is a multi-cultural center that provides a new gateway to the existing campus. The facility is intended to provide a centralized location for radio, television and newspaper productions, but also serves as a classroom facility for instruction of communications, foreign language and international studies. The building contains large, open spaces for formal and informal gatherings, and is intended to serve as a “home away from home” for students attending Hope from diverse cultures. Along with faculty offices, four classrooms, a 90-person auditorium, language and computer labs, television and radio stations with editing suites and a newspaper production facility are provided. The estimated project cost of this 49,000 SF Center for Global Communications on Hope College’s campus was $12,000,000. Final construction cost is $8,700,000. Construction was completed in September 2005. The project received the Associated Builder & Contractor Award for Flooring in 2006 and the award for Educational Facilities Construction in 2007.
