Rivera K-8 New Classroom Addition - Administration and Library Remodel

With the conversion of the school from a traditional grade 6-8 school, the administration and library needed to be more central to the overall campus. The design team converted an existing 5 classroom building to a new elementary and middle school administration on the public side of the building with a library program on the school courtyard side. Due to new 2013 codes and relocation of structural shear walls, the entire building structure and systems was upgraded except for the mechanical units, which are only about
8 years old. The only site work is the adjacent sidewalk that needed to be raised for ADA compliance and connections of all utilities and data. In order to meet the 4 month construction time, the design team agreed to eliminate submittal review and included all colors in the bid documents so that contractors could order everything as early as possible and begin the construction and layout immediately after the notice to proceed was issued.

About Project

The Merced City School District created their first K-8 school to reorganize the District grade levels at all other schools. The entire District reorganization depended on this school being completed by August 2015. In order to expedite the design and construction, the project design was started in March 2014 and had to be 100% completed in less than 18 months by

August 2015. Without the use of modular buildings, the District utilized a previous classroom design that both WLC Architects and WLC Construction Services have built before, are a very competitive price, and simple to build with covered walks around the building. The scope includes a total of 18 permanent classroom buildings, a new modular band room that replaced a 30 year old modular band room, relocation of 6 modular classrooms, site fencing, additional elementary and visitor parking, and ADA site upgrades for about 115,000 square feet of the site.
