Cherry View Elementary School Additions
This project involved adding two buildings to the existing elementary school because the District needed additional classrooms for their continued growth. Each addition was considered a separate building, and together they totaled approximately 15,000 SF.
The exterior was designed to blend the additions into the existing building to minimize the appearance of being added at a later date. The interior space was updated to the District’s new standard and included additional classrooms, a Kids Zone, special education , student restrooms, faculty restrooms, and conference rooms.
The project’s final completion date was set for the MEA weekend break. Loeffler developed a CPM schedule for the preconstruction, construction, and closeout which supported the District’s final completion requirement. The schedule took into account the long lead items, the bid strategy for public procurement, winter conditions to begin as early as possible, and the permitting process. A conditional use permit was required in order to obtain the building permit and subsequent trade permits.
Loeffler and the design team to produced design documents in support of this process, including the project’s review at both planning commission and city council meetings. The project budget was set prior to the start of design and was not to be exceeded. Loeffler provided weekly estimate updates based on the design as it progressed through each phase and the intermediate versions.
