Document Description
The Project encompasses most of the Kennedy HS campus and consists of the comprehensive modernization of the campus, including demolition, construction, and renovation activities. The Project includes demolition and removal of 22 relocatable buildings (containing 30 classrooms) and the construction of a new 2O,5O0-square-foot building (that will provide ten new classrooms). Additionally, the following buildings would be renovated to improve seismic safety: 1) Classroom Buildings #1, #2, and #3; 2) the Library Building; 3) the Science Building; 4) the Student Store Building; 5) the Cafeteria Building; 6) the Oral Arts Building; 7) the Music Building; 8) the Shop Building; and 9) the Adult School Office. Other improvements include campus-wide infrastructure, including domestic water, fire, irrigation, gas, sewer, low voltage (e.g., fire, telephone, data), electrical and storm drainage, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance, landscape, hardscape, interior and exterior paint, and window treatments. The Project scope also includes the placement of interim facilities, as necessary and subject to all relevant codes and regulations, to replace facilities and associated functions lost during construction.
