RRM in the News: Construction Underway on Central Coast New Tech High School
The Lucia Mar Unified School District hired RRM to assist them with development of the Central Coast New Tech High School on a very aggressive timeline in order for the school to open in the fall of 2012. The new campus is adjacent to Nipomo High School and includes three new modular classrooms as well as renovation of existing buildings. The 11 modules were constructed by American Modular Systems at their plant in Manteca, California and trucked to the site. In the space of four hours, they were all lifted into place and secured to the permanent concrete foundation. The last module to be placed contained restrooms with tile on the walls and floor and weighed 55,000 pounds. The new classrooms are specially configured to support the innovative, collaborative, project-based instruction that will be a part of the new tech program. All of the new classrooms feature solar lighting, insulation and other features to reduce operational costs and promote sustainability. The District is pursuing LEED certification of the project.
