Lewis Creek Recreation Center in Bellevue Wa

Salesperson: James Witkowski
Builder: Chinn Construction

About Lewis Creek Recreation Center:
Bellevue,WA built one of its newest community centers with Bear Creek Lumber recycled redwood. The Lewis Creek Recreation Center was
built by Chinn Construction of Redmond, WA. Salesperson James Witkowski says the project shows the community’s commitment to using
sustainable materials in how it structures community facilities.

The project reflects Northwest urban design, a mixture of utility, natural beauty and functional design. In other words, the materials used for this project were quite fitting. Part of the Redwood lumber was recycled from an old water tank from Alaska. So no new lumber was felled and the end result is nothing short of amazing.

“The Lewis Creek Park and Visitor Center serve as community gathering places for environmental education and recreation. More than 80 percent of the 55-acre park is preserved in its natural condition.” Read all about this amazing community resource on their website here“.

The Redwood product pictured is recycled redwood including 2 x 2 that are cut from 2 x 8 rough cut inventory, ripped and surfaced to 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 squared.

The 1 x 8 T&G is Clear All Heart Mixed Grain. The 1-inch trim, around the doors and windows, is from a Ketchikan , Alaska water tank.
