  • Clifford Summer Update

    Posted by Neta Miller on 9/12/2019 3:00:00 PM

    Welcome back to another beautiful school year! The Bond Team has been busy all summer, bringing the Measure T Bond Measure to life. From construction to design progress, the Bond Program is well on its way to transform and modernize the Redwood City School District.

     

    This summer, the district was full of construction:

    • 30 interim housing units were installed for use at the start of the 2019/20 school year
    • Eleven schools had active construction on their campus
    • Five school Modernization projects mobilized
    • Four solar projects mobilized
    • Four Electric Vehicle Charging projects mobilized

     

    Clifford Elementary saw the following progress:

    • Solar project ground-mount system fully installed
    • Solar project electrical interconnection completed
    • Bond Team partnered with PG&E to work on energizing the new Solar system to produce power
    • 25 Electric Vehicle Charging stations’ infrastructure (was) substantially completed
    • Electric Vehicle Charger installation began

     

    Clifford Solar

     

    Currently, the Clifford Modernization scope is under review by the Division of the State Architect (DSA). DSA is a government body that provides design and construction oversight for K-12 school, and once the Bond Team receives DSA sign-off, procurement for construction will begin.

     

    The District and the Bond Team look forward to continued progress on campus and across the district, and to serving our community. Everyone is working hard to make the Redwood City School District the best learning environment it can be!

  • Clifford Bond Update

    Posted by Neta Assaf on 4/15/2019 7:00:00 PM

    This school year is gearing up to be an exciting one  for Redwood City School District, and the Bond Team is looking forward to a year of continued progress for our schools as we work to bring more education opportunities for the future leaders of our community.

     

    In 2017-18 Clifford receive HVAC upgrades, and the Modernization project went through Schematic Design, Design Development, and Construction Document phases.

     

    The Clifford Modernization project has, as of December 2018, been submitted to the Division of the State Architect (DSA). DSA is a government body that provides design and construction oversight for K-12 schools, and will review Clifford Modernization's Construction Documents for compliance and accessibility.

     

    The scope of work submitted to DSA for Clifford Modernization includes, and is not limited, the following:

    • New shade device between buildings D1 and D2 on the upper hill
    • Modernize existing restrooms
    • New kitchen equipment
    • Update storm water drainage system
    • Slurry coat and stripe existing paving
    • New concrete walkways
    • ADA upgrades
    • Exterior patch and paint
    • Selective flooring
    • Updated safety locks for all classroom doors
    • Safety fencing and decorative gate
    • Fire alarm system upgrades
    • Security camera installation

     

    All scope is subject to change. The Modernization project is expected to complete DSA review in Summer 2019.

     

    Clifford has two additional projects underway: a Solar Panel project and an Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Stations project.

     

    The Solar Panel project currently has a ground mount system being designed by REC Solar, which will be installed on the hillside behind building A. Construction is currently expected to begin in June 2019 and to be completed by November 2019, dates subject to change.

     

    For the EV Charging Stations project, the bond team is working to procure grant funding to have charging stations placed in the upper parking lot, and may seek further EV grant funds for station by the Library parking areas.

     

    The Bond Team and the District are excited to see the progress being made to transform our schools into 21st century learning environments, and the progress and effect this Bond will have on our community.

  • Clifford Design Update

    Posted by Neta Assaf on 8/30/2018 6:00:00 AM

    Another summer full of fun (and work) has come and gone at Clifford Elementary School! Welcome back, we hope your school year is successful. The Bond Team is propelling the Measure T Bond Measure’s vision into reality. The design and construction process is being carefully guided, with everyone focused on making the Redwood City School District (RCSD) the best place for learning and exploration it can be.

     

    Clifford has already seen the replacement of the previous air handling units with new Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning units in all second floor classrooms.

     

    This summer Clifford has been full of activity:

     

    • A Construction-Related Testing and Inspection Agreement with Ninyo and Moore was approved by the Board.
    • Responses to the Request for Proposals for the Prop 39 Solar Project have been received, and the Board has approved REC Solar.
    • The team received the Schematic Design set for Clifford, which determines the project requirements and goals.
    • The team received the Design Development set for Clifford, which expands on Schematic Design, finalizing the design, specific building materials, and engages additional design experts (i.e. structural, mechanical, and landscape engineers).
    • The team is in the Construction Documents phase for Clifford, which produces drawing with greater detail that will be used during construction.

     

    Next steps for Clifford include concluding the Construction Documents phase, followed by submission to the Division of the State Architect (DSA). Once DSA sign off has been received, Clifford will go into the bidding and construction phases.

     

    The Bond Team is happy to share that the timeline for completing all RCSD school site projects has been shortened to five years instead of the previously expected seven. Construction on some District sites is expected to begin as early as the start of 2019.
