Construction is scheduled to start this month on a $21 million project to convert an 80-year-old Sacramento school into a modern school.
SVA says in a statement that the reconstruction project is designed to integrate the new facilities seamlessly into the existing campus. The one-story building with four classrooms, a board room, and restrooms will be replaced with a permanent two-story building with 12 general purpose classrooms, a library/media center, and new administrative space.
The project also adds the modular construction of three kindergarten classrooms and seven general purpose classrooms. The existing administrative space will be converted into workspace for counselors, intervention specialists, and speech professionals. Also included in the scope are new restrooms, bus drop-off, parking, a courtyard, playground facilities, along with new landscaping.
The project is anticipated to be complete in December 2021. The campus will remain operational during construction, requiring the careful coordination of the development team to ensure campus safety and timeliness for project completion.
“We’re very excited to partner with Robla School District to re-invent this campus. We believe these new facilities will better empower the teachers and staff to educate tomorrow’s thinkers and leaders,” SVA Architects president Robert Simons said in a statement.
