  • Kennedy 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 2017-18 Kennedy Middle School received a new lunch shelter, and the Modernization project went through Schematic Design, Design Development, and Construction Document phases.

     

    The Kennedy Administration Building and Parking Lot project is currently under construction, and is expected to be completed by the end of 2019.

     

    The scope of work currently under construction includes:

    • New administration building and family center
    • Relocate existing underground utilities
    • Science labs
    • Modernize existing classrooms
    • Update storm water drainage system
    • New kitchen equipment
    • New parking lot and concrete walkways
    • New drop-off/bus loop area
    • Slurry coat and stripe existing paving
    • Updated safety locks for all classroom doors
    • Emergency response and wayfinding signage
    • Safety fencing and decorative gate
    • 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.

     

    Kennedy 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.

  • Kennedy 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 John. F Kennedy Middle 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.

     

    Kennedy has already seen the completion of a new double bay lunch enclosure with benches in November 2017.

     

    This summer, Kennedy has been full of activity:

    • A Construction-Related Testing and Inspection Agreement with Ninyo and Moore was approved by the Board.
    • A Construction Management Consultant Agreement with Roebbelen for Kennedy’s administration building and parking lot projects is being finalized.
    • The team received Design Development for Kennedy Modernization, 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 Kennedy Modernization, which produces drawing with greater detail that will be used during construction.
    • The Kennedy Administration and Family Center project has been submitted and approved by DSA.
    • Bid were received for the Kennedy Administration and Family Center project on October 2, 2018.

     

    Next steps for the Kennedy Modernization 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, the Kennedy Modernization project will go into the bidding and construction phases.

     

    The Kennedy Administration and Family Center project is awaiting review and sign off from DSA, which will be 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.
