Ferrucci Junior High Addition

Project Description:

The Ferrucci project will construct an addition of approximately 18,000 square foot east of the existing facility and an addition to the Commons of approximately 3,700 sq. ft. The modifications will include ten (10) classrooms, expansion of the Office and Commons, removal of portables, expansion of the bus loop and parking areas, and conversion of a computer lab to a drama classroom. Remodeling will change the building entry to the Commons through a secure vestibule to increase safety and security. Cosmetic and functional improvements are anticipated for the existing building as budget allows. The upgrades will align more closely with our 1,000 student educational specification..

Meeting with kitchen staff today.

- The design team reviewed the  25% set drawings and gave positive feedback. We need to work on the constructability/phasing issue and meet with the principal to discuss a variety of issues.

Design work by NAC Architecture continues and they are working hard to firm up the Design Development estimate. Additional testing of the infiltration rate at the onsite pond is needed to hopefully allow for a  higher design infiltration rate. 

– This project is still in the design phase. We are working with NAC Architecture, the Ferrucci staff, various PSD departments, and consultants to finalize the design.
