Our team created and provided the district with accurate floor plans and subsequent project coordination with various vendors to roll out the “Going Digital Project”, providing the district’s 30+ campuses with wireless infrastructure upgrades. Upgrades included integrating the latest data infrastructure wiring (wireless access points) in every classroom. Additionally, data switch infrastructure was set up to lay down the foundation to support current and new technology in the district well into the future. Our project responsibilities included the design of each MDF/IDF, Cat 6/6A cabling to Wireless Access Point, and data drops as required to each classroom, reviews of as-builds and test results, quality assurance, contractor installation, and review and coordination of closeout documentation, including record drawings. At the end of the project, all documentation including CAD, as-builts, and test results were delivered to the customer via electronic format.
We provided design services for all Technology, Audio-Visual, Security Systems for the lease-lease back project completed at the new Mountain House High School. We were involved from the conception of design (done in BIMM) through negotiation with the selected contractor, Turner Construction and selected sub-contractors. The campus design was web based, accommodating a one-to-one program (utilizing chrome books for each student) for the 18,000 high-schoolers invited to occupy their brand-new school. We were a part of the many on-site field visits during construction and the grand opening forty months later.
During closure of the old Citrus Heights Elementary School, the existing site was stripped, refurbished and converted into what is now Sylvan Middle School. The existing 5 buildings were taken down to framing, and our designs were implemented throughout all new Technology/Audio Visual/Fire-Life-Systems, including new underground backbone distribution. Additionally, 5 new buildings were
added to the campus to accommodate the larger Middle School population. We collaborated with the architect to design the new site to be a STEAM campus. The 5 new spaces were designed and constructed in one year, including a library, music building, vocational art building (including an art maker lab and TV broadcast studio), science building, and PE facilities.
