This project included the demolition of the existing school campus and construction of a new 40,000 sf campus. The campus additions include administration space, an elementary school, a middle school, a chapel, a gymnasium, a playfield, a 800' retaining wall and site work. The elementary and middle school classes remained operational on-site in temporary modular buildings during the project. The site is located in a residential neighborhood on a hillside above Pacific Coast Highway requiring strategic coordination with the adjacent residents, City of Laguna Beach and Cal Trans. Off-site work on Pacific Coast Highway included a new sidewalk and sculptured retaining wall. Effective coordination and communication with neighbors resulted in letters of appreciation. The project was completed on time for the new school year.
