  • Roy Cloud Design Update

    Posted by Neta Assaf on 9/30/2018 6:00:00 AM

    Another summer full of fun (and work) has come and gone at Roy Cloud 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.

     

    Roy Cloud has already seen the completion of a new double bay lunch enclosure and benches in December 2017, as well as the addition of Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning to the two story classroom building parallel to Red Oak Way.

     

    This summer, Roy Cloud has been full of activity:

    • A Construction-Related Testing and Inspection Agreement with Ninyo and Moore was approved by the Board.
    • The team received the Schematic Design set for Roy Cloud, which determines the project requirements and goals.
    • The team received the Design Development set for Roy Cloud, 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 received a 50% Construction Documents notice – this phase will produce drawings with greater detail which will be used during construction.

     

    Next steps for the Roy Cloud Elementary project include concluding the Construction Documents phase, followed by submission to the Division of the State Architect (DSA). Once DSA sign off has been received, Roy Cloud 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.

  • Roy Cloud Lunch Shelter Schedule Update

    Posted by Ty Specht on 8/22/2017 12:00:00 PM

    To the Communities of Fair Oaks, Roy Cloud, John F. Kennedy, North Star Academy, and MIT Schools,

     

    The Bond Program Team would like to update you on the progress of the Lunch Shelter Projects scheduled to start this summer while the students were on break.

     

    We are equally disappointed the lunch shelters are not installed but State of California Regulations sometimes slow projects down, as they did in this case. These regulations are in place to ensure the absolute safety of students and staff and provide the oversite for all safety on State Property. I appreciate these checks and balances as nothing is more important than the safety of our students.

     

    The California Geological Survey (CGS), working in partnership with the Division of State Architects (DSA), identified issues with the soil in "liquefaction zones" at some of our sites that require additional design review, hence the delay in approval at those identified sites and where we are today.

     

    The Bond Team negotiated a large purchase discount by agreeing to install all five shelters at the same time. We agreed this to ensure all five projects meet the budget. All shelters will be shipped to the schools when final design approval is granted for all sites. There is a Special Inspector assigned to this manufacturing plant that oversaw the construction to ensure all welds are properly performed on these structures during the entire production process.

     

    We will have two different Contractors performing the on-site work, the first does all the ground preparation and accessibility update requirements and the second installs the actual structures.

     

    Next step is awarding a contractor to complete the ground work. Bid opening is on August 24. Unfortunately, no contractors bid on this project during the first solicitation over the summer citing their summer schedules were full. Once on-site, this contractor will be required to fence off the area of work to physically separate the students from the construction for safety.

     

    Following that, the structures will be delivered and installed. With the lunch shelters in place, the final ground work will be completed and then picnic tables will be installed. We appreciate your patience with this process. We know it is disappointing, but student safety must never be compromised for the sake of a paper or verbal schedule.

     

    Regards,

     

    The Measure T Bond Program Team

  • Roy Cloud Air Conditioning Schedule Update

    Posted by Ty Specht on 8/22/2017 12:00:00 PM

    To the Communities of Roy Cloud, Clifford, and Selby Lane Schools,

     

    On August 16, 2017 Board of Education approved the Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) upgrades project, a second time. The new Contractor, O.C. McDonald, was sent the Notice of Award on August 17, 2017 and has 7 days to submit all the legal paperwork, including the schedule to the Bond Program Team. O.C. McDonald has been very proactive and intends to have all documents to the team as quickly as possible. At that time, the Bond Program Team will update the community on the dates that O.C. McDonald will be working, off school hours, at your sites.

     

    Unfortunately, due to circumstances outside the control of the Bond Team, the first contractor was unable to meet the contractual requirements of the project after being awarded. This forced the Bond Program Team to re-bid the HVAC projects which takes a minimum of five weeks starting with Board Approval to re-bid, placing us where we are today.

     

    As disappointing as the delay is to everyone, we choose to look at the positives. We have a better, more experienced contractor, and the projects came in on budget.

     

    Have a great year and we will publish the schedule soon.

     

    Regards,

    The Measure T Bond Program Team

  • Roy Cloud Conceptual Design

    Posted by Ty Specht on 8/17/2017 10:00:00 AM

    There are multiple phases of design that your school will progress through over the next several month. Those phases include:

     

    • Conceptual Design
    • Schematic Design
    • Design Development
    • Construction Documents
    •  

    A critical part of every project is the budget and ensuring that the design maximizes the budget. The architect of your school was provided a set budget and a design objective based on the goals of the Master Facility Plan and the board approved Gap Analysis finding. The attached document reflects the architect’s conceptual design for your site. Conceptual designs can be considered the first drawings that outline desires and opportunities. The level of detail is limited in this phase. The next phase, schematic development, will show addition details like wall locations, doors, and windows.

     

    The Bond Program Team is in constant contact with the school principal to confirm design developments through the entire process for feedback and design confirmation.
