  • Garfield Summer Update

    Posted by Neta Miller on 9/12/2019 3:20:00 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

     

    Garfield School saw the following progress:

    • Eight Interim Housing Units installed
    • All Interim Housing Units were connected to power and data

    Currently, the Garfield 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!

  • Garfield April Update

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

    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 educational opportunities for the future leaders of our community.

     

    In the 2017-18 school year, the Garfield Community School Modernization project went through Schematic Design, Design Development, and Construction Document phases.

     

    The Garfield Modernization project has, as of February 2019, 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 Garfield’s Modernization Construction Documents for compliance and accessibility.

     

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

    • New two-story building to include elementary, creativity, science, and middle school classrooms, along with a new library/media center,
    • New Child Development Center for preschool classrooms
    • New parking lot and concrete walkways
    • New drop-off/bus loop area
    • Slurry coat and stripe existing paving
    • HVAC system upgrades in the kitchen
    • Update storm water drainage system
    • Reconfigure existing restrooms
    • Exterior patch and paint
    • Selective flooring
    • Updated safety locks for all classroom doors
    • Emergency response and wayfinding signage
    • Safety fencing and decorative gate
    • Fire alarm system upgrades
    • Security camera installation
    • Classroom technology package (includes Redcat Access classroom voice enhancement system and flat screen TVs on motorized, adjustable carts)

     

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

     

    Garfield will additionally complete an Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Stations project. The EV Charging Stations design is currently 50% complete.

     

    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.

  • Garfield 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 Garfield Community 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.

     

    This summer, Garfield has been full of activity:

     

    • A Construction-Related Testing and Inspection Agreement with Ninyo and Moore was approved by the Board.
    • Garfield went through the California Environmental Quality Act’s Department of Toxic Substance Control (DTSC) process, with on-site testing having already been completed. The results indicate that Garfield does not require DTSC oversight, though the Program Management Team will still follow DTSC protocol.
    • The team received the Schematic Design set for Garfield, which determines the project requirements and goals.
    • The team received the Design Development set for Garfield, 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 Garfield, which produces drawing with greater detail that will be used during construction.
    • The team has completed the installation of a new walk-in freezer for Child Nutrition.

     

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

  • Garfield Conceptual Design

    Posted by RCSD Bond Team on 8/16/2017 11:00:00 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.
