Studio W Architects is providing comprehensive services to Huntington Beach CSD in the implementation of their $160 million bond program, which was passed in November 2016. We are serving as their Program Manager and overseeing the total program for its 12-year duration, including developing phasing, priorities, budget and schedule analyses, design team coordination and community information updates. Studio W based the project phasing on the priorities established during the facilities conditions assessments and master planning we completed for the District.
Phase 1 of the bond program implementation/design work was completed in 2018 and 2019 and included 21st Century demonstration classrooms at each of the District’s nine sites, as well as campus modernizations at Dwyer Middle School, Hawes Elementary School and Moffett Elementary School. Phase 2 work included extensive modernization and new construction at Seacliff and Smith Elementary Schools, which were completed in 2020.
The final phase of projects, Phase 3, is currently in progress at Eader and Peterson Elementary Schools. Planned improvements include modernizing existing classrooms to be consistent with 21st Century education methodologies, library-to-learning commons renovations, accessibility upgrades and seismic retrofits.
