  • Hoover Summer 2019 Update

    Posted by Neta Miller on 9/12/2019 3:35:00 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

     

    Hoover Elementary School saw the following progress:

    • Electric Vehicles
    • Preparation work for upcoming gym construction, including fencing and preparation for upcoming construction

     

    Currently, the Hoover 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!

  • Hoover 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 Hoover Community School Modernization project went through Schematic Design, Design Development, and Construction Document phases.

     

    The Hoover Modernization project has, as of July 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 Hoover’s Modernization Construction Documents for compliance and accessibility.

     

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

     

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

    • New state of the art 7,000 square foot multipurpose room/gymnasium
    • New lunch tables and umbrellas
    • New parking lot and concrete walkways
    • Slurry coat and stripe existing paving
    • 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
    • Upgrade It data wiring
    • 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 Hoover Modernization project is expected to complete DSA review in Spring 2019.

     

    Hoover 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.

  • Hoover 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 Hoover 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, Hoover 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 Construction Document set for Hoover, which produced drawings with greater detail that will be used during construction.
    • The Gymnasium and Modernization scopes have been combined into one cohesive Division of the State Architect (DSA) submission. The Lunch Shelter project will be an independent submission in the future.
    • A Construction Management Consultant Agreement with Kramer Project Development Company for Hoover’s Gymnasium and Modernization projects were approved by the Board..
    • A Pre-construction work to upgrade the site’s electrical services is in progress. The project will remove a PG&E gas meter from school grounds servicing the school and relocate it closer to the street where PG&E can better access it. The project will improve student safety. A construction schedule will be established after PG&E and DSA design approval is complete.

     

    The next steps for the Hoover Gymnasium and Modernization project include review and sign off from DSA, followed by 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.

  • Hoover Schematic Design Update

    Posted by Ty Specht on 11/14/2017 10:00:00 AM

    Hoover SD

     

    On September 26, 2017, RCSD approved CSDA Design Group's finalized Schematic Design and cost estimate. The schematic design includes proposed design information about the modernization of the existing school as well as further design details about the new gymnasium. The schematic design packet, attached below, is subject to change based on the design-to-budget conversation the Bond Team and the Architect will be engaged in over the next month.

     

    The estimated cost for the schematic design is over budget at this phase of design. The Bond Program Team is confident minor changes to the design can be implemented to bring the project design back into alignment with the project budget. Changes to the design are intended to reduce cost without reducing programming. For instance, a suggested design change is to consider a different type of glass in the windows over the gymnasium. This is a material change that does not impact the program of the gym.

    The inspiration for the design incorporates community and culture. The architects desire to design a space that provides community gathering, safety, and active living. The gymnasium will provide a burst of color near the ground that is playful and respectful to the surrounding neighborhood. There is a proposed community plaza at the entrance of the gymnasium, at the intersection of Stambaugh and Willow Streets, where children can play on active play structures and adults can sit and converse. The gymnasium is capped with a glass hat that will glow as a beacon in the community.

     

    As you review the drawings you will find the gymnasium has multiple interior basketball courts, bleacher seating, and a portable stage for performances. The existing rock wall is proposed to be re-installed in the new gymnasium. Outside the gymnasium, you will find a “ball wall” where students can practice soccer or tennis.

    There is a proposed redesign to the security fencing interior to and exterior to the school site. The new fencing is meant to be more visually appealing and welcoming while still providing the necessary security a school requires.

     

    All design elements shown in the schematic design are subject to Board approval and budget funding. At this time, the project estimate is greater than the Bond Approved budget. Some design elements may be reduced or eliminated to ensure the fiscally responsible use of Measure T Bond funds.

     

    CSDA Design Group has delivered design development drawings to the District for review. A cost estimate is in progress for those drawings and the Program Management Team will release an update on the design after a full review.
